Bio and Links
I have been photographing grave stones since the 1980's in the southern N.J./PA area. I first started (like many) with my own family tree, and then I started photographing grave markers of Civil War and Revolutionary War Veterans' gravesites (among others) in the late 1980's and early 1990's. I moved to southeast GA in 1996 and continued with my project. I have MANY more photos from years ago (about 2000) than the ones I have posted on FIND-A-GRAVE. Any changes or corrections to my photos or information please feel free to contact me. Also, anyone wanting to use my photos for ANY reason, please ask first, I usually OK a request as long as I am given credit for the photo. Thanks.

- Kutztown University of PA (1990)
(B.A. Applied Geography)
- Ogeechee Technical College (2016)
(A.S. Geographical Information Systems)(GIS)

Some of the surnames I am researching include: Lau (German origin, not Asian), Wynn, Scull, Navone, Henderson, Corson, Biggs, Camp, Cheesman, Wolbert (Woolbert), Cresse, Elmer, & Lummis. Most of these family names are from the southern N.J./Philadelphia, PA area.

P.S. I've also been (since the early 1970's) a HUGE Philadelphia PHILLIES and FLYERS fan!! Greg (THE BULL) Luzinski was my favorite Phillie!

Hi, Kurt,

Do you know whether or not Lower Black Creek Cemetery has any written records of all burials (including unmarked graves) at the cemetery? Thanks.
