Find a Grave ID


I'm originally from Greensburg, PA and graduated from Hempfield High School in 1971. I went to Penn State and graduated in 1975 with a degree in Forestry. I worked for the US Forest Service for 43 years and finally retired January 2, 2019. I finally moved back home amidst the 2020 covid pandemic.

The families I'm researching all lived in or around southwest Pennsylvania - mainly Westmoreland, Fayette and Somerset Counties - and include the surnames Sykes, Tarr, Love, Tinstman, Noel, Harrison, Harr, Fry, Beistel, Brindle, Smith, Zimmerman, McNelly, Spielman, Ruffcorn, Bates, Baker, and Fultz.

I review a lot of cemetery records and if I discover a person is not in the FAG database I'll create a profile for that person. If you would like to manage one of the memorials I created, please use the edit tab, list the memorial number and your id number and I'll be happy to transfer them as long as they're not one of my family members.
