Find A Grave ID


I am a native of New Jersey, but spent the majority of my adult life in Florida, because driving in snow is just not fun! My ancestors are predominantly of the "West Jersey" Society of Friends set that ventured to America in the late 1600s. My wish for others is that they find this site as useful as I have found it in my quest for connection to my past.

I am a Haines-Garwood-Vansciver-Dischert-Thinnes and Anderson-Seal-Blundin-Tucker descendant. Any family members or very close friends that desire to manage any memorials I currently manage, please feel free to request a transfer using the edit feature, and I would be happy to consider the request. I am not in a race to collect up the most graves, and would feel more comfortable if someone who knew the departed better than I should manage the memorial. I often come upon obituaries in the course of my research, and if they are not already documented on findagrave, will create a memorial for them. If you know them, or they are your relative and not mine, please do not hesitate to request the transfer.

Many thanks to all the volunteers at findagrave for a job well done in documenting our collective history.

There is a sage old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." I think it applies here.

I'd like to add that I don't 'follow' anyone - I never have, and I never will - so "following" is a gross misnomer for what was formerly known as 'friends'. I have 'friends' who I enjoy cooperating with in cyberspace to document gravesites and memorials that we may all freely share.
