I greatly appreciate the effort of so many people to document grave records and memorials. I have found great joy in connecting with my family who have passed even if by means of the sight of a simple stone and in helping others do so. There is a solid feeling..a continuity...that is comforting and encouraging which is gained from attending those who came before and whose blood we share. I hope to help the effort as much as I am able. Thanks to you all.
As to my bio, I enjoy sailing, motorcycles, cabinetmaking and genealogy.I know my fathers' fathers for 320 years back, but have taken greatest reward in finding out through research my own father's story of his youth-he having passed away when I was young.
I owe much to people like those contributing to Findagrave. Benjamin L. Manifold
