I am a historian, genealogist and cemetery buff living in Louisiana.
My personal genealogical interests are mostly in the Philadelphia and McKean County, PA areas, with ancestral surnames that include Helms, Colflesh, Schick, Henry, Pile, Harned, Stroup, Mowday, Monago, Bonitate, Leone, Di Victoria, Monti di Sopra, Da Corte Cavalier, Soppelsa, and Maufioe.
My academic research at North Carolina State University focuses on a number of prominant reconstruction-era families in the Alamance County area including Long, Wood and Albright. I'm also deeply involved in research about the Rollin White and Lucius Pond families in Massachusetts. I was proud to be elected to Phil Beta Kappa in 2014.
I do a lot of "row mowing" with my camera and I'm happy to transfer ownership of a memorial to friends and family of the deceased. My goal is to see that these memorials are well cared for.
Please consider leaving a flower at the memorial for our beloved canine companion, <a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=174932213">Sydney Constance Coffey Helms</a>.
