I was raised in Elizabethville, PA but now living in Oak Harbor, WA Am retired and doing genealogy for the E'ville Richter family and Isaac W. Mattis family.
I am also doing memorials for my wife's family, Ackley, Priboth, Herbert & Jones. Please see the Ackley Virtual Cemetery for names.
Am also making a virtual cemetery for all veterans in Maple Grove. Please let me know if I miss someone who is in the Find A Grave list.
Thanks to the wonderful ladies that helped post photos from Rome and Florence National Cemeteries.

Have taken 7900+ photos at Sicily-Rome American Cemetery. Am processing requests first but please be patient, it takes time. They need editing because they are white marble without any highlights for the names. I'll upload as I finish a batch of edits.
As always if you desire the raw photo email me.

To all the wonderful people who have commented on the Sicily-Rome photos please be assured I'll get back to you as soon as all the requests are posted. Some of you have been waiting for many a-day.
Reviewing ALL the messages sent am afraid I'll have to settle for a general message to you. The many stories told do my heart good. I understand how much these pictures mean to families. It is my honor and privilege to add my small efforts to support bringing closure to families and adding to the growing base of recording to military history.
I have sent a list of memorials that do not have photos to the Superintendent of the cemetery. She hopes that she can have people help complete the process.

I am in the process of identifying the graves in Maple Grove that do not have markers so when I go back again I can try to find them. There are some sections, particularly 13-14 which do not have very many. Perhaps these were during the big depression.
