Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello from New Mexico.
I've been excavating and cataloging pioneer cemeteries for over 30 years. In the 1980s I even published a few works on the subject. Like most of you, I'm also an avid genealogist. While I enjoy finding the graves of famous people, I'm more interested in the common soldier and pioneer. Every one of them has a story.

As for genealogy, I am currently working on the surnames Trine, Minter, Dozier, Shackleford and Marquez. I'm also collecting the names and graves of the Maryland 6th Infantry.

I'm usually "on the road," so my photos come from wherever I happen to be. I've had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of wonderful people who share this love for history. Contact me if I can be of any help to you.

ABOUT TRANSFERS: I am happy to transfer anyone who is not my direct ancestor.

Elizabeth Elyar Meeks.
Elizabeth (Eylar) Meeks is under Memorial # 11320361. I have put a request in to add her as a child today so this might take a while. Is there a way to add an identifying comment for the photo of Elizabeth & her mother, Alice?

RE: Archer photos
This is terrific. I was wondering if you could identify the baby in Alice Joanna Archer's photo.

RE: Archer/Gardner Photos
The Gardner/Gardiner family's records went back & forth on the spelling in christening and census records. So both are correct, depending on the record maker.

Can I also use these photos in my on-line family tree?

RE: Elizabeth Hardesty Colvin
Yes they have contacted me too; but I said to provide the documention as this is related to a US vice president family and it is quite documented as to actual federal documents as well as family; never heard another word.

Thank you for posting Archer/Gardner Photos
I can see the family resemblance with George J Archer to my husband's line. I would be interested in knowing if any location stamps or hand writing is on the back's of these photos. I hope you are also able to find the one you have for Elizabeth K (Farrar) Archer. A lot of people mix the 2 wives up or combine them. Having 2 distinct photos of each would help untangle this problem.

RE: Elizabeth Hardesty Colvin
I would suggest re-doing yours, as well as removing the photos from mine. I have no information on the other husband, I asked for information to show documentation of connection by another person, this has not been forthcoming; to me; they are 2 different persons; mine I know are considered very upper-class political and money with lots of documentation, there is a middle person. wanting to connect these?? I always look for documentation.

Elizabeth Hardesty Colvin
Elizabeth Hardesty Colvin 66246208 is in the family line of a US vice president with plenty of family documentation as well as government documentation, I can find no record of a additional husband and she is buried in the Colvin family plot.
Perhaps they are 2 different people??
Please let me know of your sources or I will remove pictures and other "husband".

Lincoln Co photo/ G.W. Peppin
I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt. May I use the photo you contributed to Find A Grave for the memorial page of George Peppin, or other Vermont related Veterans, to post on the Vermont Civil War site/ (
You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration
