I'm an amateur genealogist learning more and more every day. My ancestry has been traced back to a Revolutionary War patriot, Reuben Stearns. I believe he may not be the only direct ancestor who served in the Revolutionary War since family on my father's side also arrived with the earliest ancestors in the 1600s. It's exciting to search, but not easy to prove. I'm hard at work doing just that.

I remember how thrilled I was when I found the head stone picture for Reuben Stearns on this site. That's when I decided that I wanted to help others by taking pictures of head stones and posting them in the cemetery listings posted here.

There are many very old cemeteries around me and I'll be uploading pictures as I find them and suggesting corrections to others when I see errors in listings. I will also add obituaries that other members are kind enough to send me for anyone whose memorial I manage.

I would be happy to turn over management of any listing to a family member, so feel free to contact me about it.
