I'm searching for my family. How about you?
My parents were Donald Victor Carpenter and Nancy Jean Anderson Carpenter. I was raised in the Broadfording area of Hagerstown, Maryland. Names I am especially looking for: Carpenter, Hose, Anderson, Scott, Vanderau (spelled so many ways), Zimmerman, Prettyman and Kennell.

* Nothing like doing research and finding out that your mom and dad were distant cousins.
My parents shared the same 7th great-grandfather.

Dr. Heinrich Zimmerman, was my maternal and paternal 7th great grandfather. When he came to America William Penn ordered that his last name be to changed to a more American sounding name. The last name chosen was Carpenter. My dad's side kept the last name Carpenter while my mom's family returned to the last name Zimmerman.

Keep never know what you may find out!

I also do research for my husband, Warren. His parents were John Henry Clark and Stella Marie Kauffman Clark. Names I'm looking for in his family are: Clark, Kauffman, Dodson and Stottlemyer.

My goal is to connect my family and add information to their memorials making it easier for other family members (and friends) to find the person that has passed.

Thank you to those that create memorials for family (and friends) to find, add information and link them to their family. You're a blessing!

Also, a huge thank you to the contributors who've added photos to my memorials.

If you're searching for information about any of the last names listed above, please contact me. I'll see what I can do to help you.

*There are memorials I've added that do not have a burial location. If you come across one, please bring it to my attention (as I may have forgot to add the location). If you know the place of burial, please let me know. Your help is truly appreciated!

Dear Ancestor,
The place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so

I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

My memorials have the obituary in there entirety so people can know for sure the memorial they're reading is the correct person they are trying to locate.

Please don't be a contributor that creates a memorial on Find A Grave and won't fix errors or transfer it to family. Owning the most memorials is not what Find A Grave is about. Errors should always be corrected or at least be noted in a memorial.
