Bio Photo Retired military and living near Antietam battlefield.


ALSO...TO ANSWER THE QUESTION ASKED BELOW BY Dave Lehman (#47034421)....I HAVE NOT BEEN A "DICK" AT ALL IN MY LIFE. I HAVE BEEN TOO BUSY WITH 27 YEARS OF MILITARY SERVICE, OVER A DECADE OF CIVILIAN POLICE WORK....and putting a few times as many entries into Findagrave as you. As anyone can see I have not really had the time to waste any of MY life being...or calling anyone a "DICK", Dave.

If I have added a family member or a good friend, I am happy to transfer memorials. I am not bothered by F.A.G. guidelines in transfers. I am concerned about getting family members "back together." I DO transfer distant relatives since they SHOULD be with family.
I am also happy to transfer memorials of close friends as well as family.

REMEMBER, these sites are in memory of someones' ancestors. If you place a photo on a memorial, make it good enough that you would be happy with it on your own.

All men die...not all men really live.

I am looking for Charles & Flo Liddington. Flo died in 1972. Charlie was alive in 1974. They were my mothers' mother & step-father.
I believe they lived modestly within a half hour of Danville, PA. Also, I am searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rdBattalion of the Maryland Militia. An ancestor I am searching for, Thomas Mock, who served with this unit in New Jersey in 1777 under George Washington. He had a wife names Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington County, MD.

Davis in Bakersville cemetery
Thank you SO MUCH for taking and posting those pictures of Eliza and Annie Davis from the Bakersville cemetery! I live in the West and am in college so it would be very difficult for me to go there and take the pictures myself. Thank you again for the time that you spent to go and find those graves and get the beautiful pictures!!

Thank you for your service and volunteer photography for Find a Grave.

I have a photo that I took 17 Sep 2012 of the marker for Lafayette F Alderman, Antietam. I would like place it on the memorial that you created for him, if I may.

Hedges Chapel Cemetery
Birdman, thanks for all those plots you recently put in for the Hedges Chapel Cemetery. I am the Treasurer for both the Chapel and the Cemetery and I am working on updating the records for the Cemetery. Would you consider transferring all your Hedges Chapel memorials to me? It would make my work a lot easier, and would be less on you.
