Bio and Links
Bio Photo Name: James Stanza
Location: Ambler, Pennsylvania
Date of Birth: June 5, 1960

I am an 19th and 20th century American historian and writer, have been for 29 years. I have investigated many historical events such as the Lincoln assassination, the Great Train Wreck of 1856, the murder of Philip Barton Key, the Double Indemnity murder and the Watergate Scandal. I have never gone to college. I live in a nice house in Ambler, PA with my lovely wife, Emma. We have one son and one daughter, both adults.

I like the past, I would rather go back and live their. Our days of today are so tacky and advanced going from buildings, automobiles, technology. If I could go back to 1976, I would. Unfortunetly, my past is all been killed by the present, so I collect the leavings of the past.

I like to research alot. Ask me anything about any U.S. President or Senator and I can answer. Same goes for alot of things. I love my work with history and it is something I've always wanted to do and it I have proven wrong to those people who said I couldn't do it.

My idol is Abraham Lincoln, the greatest president of all time.

William Bigler
I'm only writing to let you know that there are descendants of Gov. Wm. Bigler & his brother John. I had 2 brothers named after the Biglers, Jeffrey Bigler Good 1st and Jeffrey Bigler Good II. They are both deceased and rest in Fairview Cemetary, Cambridge County, PA. My father was the son of Ralph & Marion good. Ralph was probably Wm. or John's grandson. As I get older, I get more interested.
Good day,
Christopher Good

Re Brig Gen Absolam Madden West
This is a correction to my comment below in that I should have addressed it to Mr. Stanza for linking his site to this memorial with the comment about Abraham Lincoln. I'm sure you didn't mean any harm or think of it from the Southern point of view, but I would really appreciate it if you could delete the link or the comment out of respect for the deceased.

Thankyou very much

Re. Brig.Gen. Absolam Madden West
Dear commentors:

This noteworthy gentleman is one of my ancestors, which gives me the right to say that your comments about Abraham Lincoln on his memorial site are inappropriate, insensitive, and discourteous.. After all, he was a Confederate General

I have a question about your photo. I was there today and took photos as well, but the large family marker looks to me like it has been moved? I can send you my picture so you can see the difference in yours vs. mine. Other large stones are there too but they look out of place too like they were moved as well. famous people stones.please let me know if you know of this being done? doesn't look like the actual graves were moved though..It doesn't seem right to me!I've taken pics at this cemetery many times in the past and my ancestors are buried there too.. thanks! Andrea
