Bio Photo Retired military and living near Antietam battlefield.


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 also searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rd or 34th Battalions 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 named Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington & Fredrick County, MD.

Edit Memorials

Wanted to let you know that I have requested a rather large number of updates of your on your memorials at the Boonsboro Cemetery. I didn't want to overwhelm your system.

The updates are from the Washingon County Maryland Cemetery Records, Volume 2.

As always nice working with you,

Pvt. Dennis Locklin #48776291
Hi again Birdman,

I've been trying to reach you since May 16th via the "edit" and public message options, but I haven't heard back from you. I hope you're just busy and that you're okay!

I'm hoping that you will transfer my Great-Great Uncle's memorial to me. I would really love to have it. If you don't want to transfer it, would you at least please contact me so that I can send information to you to add to the memorial? Please help me to get Dennis and his family members "back together."

Cemetery search
Hello! I see you posted a photo of the Gsell and Foreman cemetery near Marion, PA. I have ancestors in this cemetery--I found your picture from a search for the grave of Jacob Hege. I'm trying to track down the burial spot of Christian Hege who served in the Revolutuonary War.

Would you be so kind as to let me know where the Gsell and Foreman cemetery is located?

Thanks! Sue Burkey

Elias S Eakle
Is there a stone for Elias? This is my great grandfather, on my mothers side of the family. I'd like to see a pic of his stone added to his find-a-grave site. I can also supply his children's names from his 1st wife. No children by his 2nd wife.

Thank you,

Sandra McBride

Enos P. Wilson, Antietam
I have submitted some edits as well as a photo for Enos, who is the younger brother of my husband Jerry's great grandfather, Alpheus Wilson. (see 1850 Census) They both served for WV in the Civil War, along with 2 other brothers. Enos died at Sandy Hook "hospital" at age 18 after serving less than one year. We visited Antietam several years ago & took a picture of his gravestone on a rainy grey day, so the picture is not great (the stone was not in good condition either). Regards, Helen Wilson
