Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an adoptee whose journey to locate my biological family led me to Penn Yan, New York. With the assistance of fellow Find a Grave volunteers, I successfully uncovered my roots! Now I am dedicated to helping others fulfill their quests for the truth while continuing to search for my own. I pledge to do all I can to help others while treating everyone (both the living and those who have passed before us) with dignity and respect. If I can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.

Dear Jan,

Thank you so much for providing this information for my Ancestry works. I had searched for 2 years for my great grandfather. Through Find A Grave I was able to finally locate him. This means the world to me. He was like a ghost in the family and so sad to think about how he died. Alone and in a State Hospital. I should be receiving a copy of his death certificate any day now. Without Find A Grave and you Jan, I would not have this information.

My warmest gratitude to you.

Mae and William Alcorn are not my relatives. George Alcorn married into our family. They might be related to him. I am sure some day, someone in their family will be thankful for your efforts. As always, I appreciate everything you have done for me.

Hi Jan,
I posted pictures of Frank, Sarah, and Russell Davis.

I have been working with Stuart Pope to try and clear some of the many photo requests.
