Hello, Please feel free to use any of my photos.

I was an adjunct professor of geography for 30 years in the Cincinnati area and a researcher of historical buildings and covered bridges. Since 1990, I have been a researcher & web manager for historical old grist mills.

About 2012 my brother asked me where our paternal grandfather was buried. As it turned out I did not even know his correct name. After several months of research, I found our grandfather and our family history exploded.

My ancestors are deeply rooted in the early history of our country. I am fascinated by my ancestors who lived on the East Coast in the early 1600's to 1700's as I am fascinated and excited by finding my 2nd cousins and additional relatives.

Since 2014, I have been working with numerous groups, townships, Eagle Scouts and individuals to assist in working on neglected cemeteries. I have met wonderful people. The work they are doing to make sure these historic cemeteries are not forgotten is amazing. Thank you FindaGrave for the identification of these cemeteries and Thanks to everyone who is assisting in this important project.

Everyday is a new experience. Have a Great One! Brenda
