Bio and Links
Bio Photo Recently retired. Love to fish, especially warmwater, freshwater gamefish species. Used to ice fish, but need a warmer non-summer activity. Thought Find-A-Grave might fit that opening, at least through the transition months. Both activities center around the central western portion of the Finger Lakes Region in Western New York. In 2010, caught and released a 20 1/2 inch largemouth in Honeoye, a 20 1/4 inch largemouth in Canandaigua, a 21 inch smallmouth in Keuka, a 40 1/4 inch northern in Keuka, and a 27 inch chain pickerel in Canandaigua. You've got to love the beauty of the hills, the richness of the farm lands, the water resources, and the history of the Finger Lakes and it's inhabitants.

RE: Bath National
There's no rush Charles, none at all. There are plenty I need as I try to clean-up some names and dates - some of these men were incorrectly listed by either findagrave or the VA gravesite database. So I'll be requesting a few each week and there's no hurry as I do the clean-up.
If I get to upstate NY next year I'd like to see Bath in person & take some myself. Judging from your photography, it's beautiful.

Hicks updates and pics
Thanks so much for all of the Hicks updates and photos. Are you a Hicks descendant? Martin Hermance Hicks was my 3x gr grandfather. I did a lot of research on this line many years ago but now that you have given me so much valuable information I will have to get back to Hicks.
Can I use your photos for my Ancestry site?

Thanks so much

photo of Sylvester Keller
Thank you so much for the photo of my great great grandfather's headstone. I have just within the past month made contact with another great great granddaughter of Sylvester's in Sweden and I know she'll greatly appreciate the photo as well.

RE: Bath National
Just saw the photographs for John Grimley & John McGowan. They're as nice as the first 3. Everything you say about Bath National is true. Glad there's a good photographer to do it justice.

Thank you!
Thank you so much for taking the picture of my father's grave. I wish I could go up to visit more often, but sadly I can't due to having to have moved all the way down to Florida. I'm so grateful to you for doing this for me! Thank you!!!

Bath National
Hi Charles - Thank You. The photographs of Tom Fagen, Dan McGowan & George Mansfield are outstanding - and the plot photos are beautiful. Is Bath situated on a lake ? Looks like a lake in the background on Tom Fagen's landscape shot.
I'd like to add also, Thank You for honoring our veterans in this way.
