Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in Southwest Pennsylvania and have been researching in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Missouri, Arkansas and Maryland for about 15 years mainly working on the Coss, Williams, Postlewait, Blair, Brandon, Ratledge, Kephart, Hoover and Cain families both past and present.

We visit quite a few cemetery's in our area. When we're out taking photos of family or fulfilling requests, we try to take as many of the undocumented stones as we can. We can take digital photos but it may take a while as we both work.

Sometimes due to the weather, our pictures do not come out as clear as we would like. We put these photos in anyway because we feel it's better to have some picture instead of none at all. We would be more than happy to retake photos when the weather is better if you'll just let us know which photos you want redone.

If we add someone in your family that you'd like transferred, no matter the relationship, please let us know and we will gladly do it for you, if we're not related to them. We mainly work on our families.

If you want to copy photos or anything else we put on Find A Grave, please feel free to as we will gladly share anything we have.

Mary Darling White
I noticed you posted a photo of Mary White. Do you have a family connection to her? My Great Great Grandmother was Priscilla Ellen DARLING Simonton. I believe her father, Daniel, to have been Mary White's Brother. Any information regarding her parents, James & Rachel Darling, from Kent County De. would be greatly appreciated. -- Kathy

Hi Again!
Hi there! Me again... I'm sorry to be asking but I'm still new to this site. I found my Aunt Gertrude and have reached out to the person who submitted her memorial. She will not transfer my aunt's memorial to me unless I abide by the guidelines of the site. I've looked through the site and can't seem to locate any guidelines. Can you please advise to maybe where I can look? Sorry to be a pest.

RE: Transfers
Thank you so much! Would you happen to know if there is a map of Centennial? I haven't been there since I was 6 and while I have an idea where my family is, I know some of them are behind the church. I wanted to pay a visit to each one.

RE: Porter (and Johnson)
How do you transfer? If you don't mind, that would be wonderful.

I noticed you are working on Postlewait. My dad said that my great uncle Thomas Lee was married to a Lorraine Postlewait. That was her maiden name, her married name was Johnson. Does she ring a bell?

Thank you so much for taking pictures of the Porter (and Johnson) headstones at Centennial Cemetery in Aleppo. I have not been there since I was 6 years old when my grandfather passed. With your pictures, I not only saw their headstone, but I saw other relatives as well. So thank you again. I'm planning to visit them all the end of May.

I just noticed you have his grave photo listed with them in the description, it just didn't link the parents to his stone. I have added it. I'm still figuring out this site, my apologies.
