Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found Find A Grave while looking up the grave of a famous person on a computer terminal where I used to work, in early 2004. I continued to look up other graves, & eventually was hooked.

Every Cemetery is hallowed grounds.
They are an important key to our past.

Please teach Your children that cemeteries & grave markers are a specific location where human beings are permanetely buried, and that they are to be respected, and not damaged or destroyed in any way, shape, or form.
Cemeteries are very educational, they are very serene, & can be one of the safest places to be in. I have had many hobbies throughout my life;
But "Graving" has given me a very rewarding,
inner peace that I will never find elsewhere.

Dorcas Sprowls maiden name Towne
She also had a daughter Dorcas Ann Sprowls b 1835
location unknown to me.
Do you have Dorcas's Husband William in a memorial? I haven't found it yet. A lot of Head stones have son or daughter of W & D on them Dorcas is the D.
They had 9 children my source is Edwards family tree on Ancestry. Walter B Sprowls was Dorcas and william's great grandson and my relative.

Thank you

I just recently saw the new tombstone from your pic which was put on my great grandfather's grave. His dates are wrong and I am so surprised by it as his daughter and her daughter arranged for the tombstone! I sent an edit or you could add it as additional info. I got his birthdate from his Civil War Pension Record and I have his obituary which was published on 5 August 1903 in the Washington Reporter Newspaper.

Thanks for putting the picture on!!!!!

Hi Sandman

I see that you have photographed this memorial in Washington, PA. Can you tell me where the plaque is with all the names on it? Is it inside or outside the memorial? If it is inside is the door locked and if so, is there a contact phone number?

I'm working with someone who will take a picture of that plaque and need this information to give to her. I'm not sure if you entered the information on the people you listed on the findagrave site but my understanding from other sources is that there should be 331 names on that plaque.

Any other information you have about this memorial would be greatly appreciated.
