Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy and graving, are two of my many hobbies. I'm also a history buff.

I started recording cemeteries over 8 years ago
-- that's history and genealogy all rolled up into one. Walking cemeteries is also another way to get some exercise. Since I'm former military, I try and get photos of military gravestones.

I also try and help people find their ancestors in portions of Beaver and Washington counties, Pennsylvania; East Liverpool, Ohio and Chester, West Virginia.

I'm one of those genealogy search angels. If you are at that proverbial brickwall with your genealogy research in Beaver County, Pa., Hancock County, WV and/or Columbiana County, Ohio, I'll be glad to try and help in your search.

I also put abbreviated obits on FindAGrave that I see in the newspaper. If you see any errors or want to add something to any of my submissions, please let me know. If you want to make corrections to a memorial, please use the edit button on the memorial. I'll be able to get to the memorial and edit it a lot quicker going thru findagrave's system.
I'm also more than glad to transfer memorials to family members. Please include your member number.
If you are going to email me, please include the memorial's link as well as your member number.
Please list FindAGrave and/or the name of the cemetery in the subject line so your email doesn't end up as Spam and possibly get deleted.

If you want to suggest changes to a memorial, please use the edit tab on the memorial.

Hi LF, John Owen was my grandfather and I was wondering if you could transfer the memorial over to me? My number is 4797865. I also officiated his service here in PA.

Thanks a million!!! If I come across any more that you have the original photo for, I'll send you a message. And thank you for being so kind of adding all the plot edits in that cemetery. Have a great weekend!!!

I would like permission to use your photo of this couple's gravestone on my private Ancestry Family Tree. I would of course credit you [or "LF"] as the photographer.
Thank you.
