Bio and Links
Bio Photo Click on the tomb for more info. I've been seriously interested in family genealogy for a long time. If I've added memorials to non-family members it's because I was there and had a camera while looking for my family (I'm a grave walker). Some markers catch my eye and I must photograph them. I try hard to capture the Veterans when I find them...because they deserve it. I'm not interested in building an empire of memorials for the sheer sake of numbers so I'm more lax over turning them over to family than Find A Grave's rules. If a relative is closer to you than me I have no problem turning them over. If they are at all relation to you and not me then just ask, tell me your relation and they are yours. Just try to be polite, it'll take you farther. I try not to add recent deaths too quickly, doesn't allow friends to post their friends memorials (I don't look at the Obits each morning first). I'd like to thank the volunteers who have brought me photos from far away, you are wonderful. You may use these photos for any non-profit reasons (, findagrave spouses, etc)
I've been happily married for 40 years to a wonderful woman who keeps me in check. (I need to be kept in check.) I'm a NRA Life Member (gun enthusiast), from bull's-eye pistol to BMG, a certified PADI SCUBA Divemaster, Extra Class HAM radio operator and 4th dan Judo black belt. I wish I could fly, parachute, play an instrument and dance but I can't...or haven't yet. I also make a mean breakfast!

Harvey J. England
Thank you for the photo of the headstone of Harvey J. England. May I use it on my tree? I will, of course, credit you.

He was my grand uncle.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for providing information on Ernest McGee, my cousin. Please transfer his files over to me to manage. Thanks,

Tim Adams son of Marion Agnes Quick-Adams who is the daughter of Sarah Wishnoff-Quick who divorced Mathew D Quick and married James McGee. Mathew D Quick also known as "Raymond" is the father of my mom, Marion and her only other sibling, Ernest Matthew Quick who took on his step father's last name, McGee before getting married to Mary "Jeanette" Watts. He is the father of Ernest Matthew McGee and my other cousins Rachel, Doris, Gloria, and Brian. Uncle Ernie in his later years changed his last name back to his birth name, "Quick". Thank you for professional service to the Find a Grave site.
