Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Maryland but my heart and much of the family I am researching is in Pennsylvania. The majority of my family is of German origin, emigrating in the early to mid 1700s. On my father's side I have a particular interest in the following families: Stine/Stein, Smith, Hauze, Burkert, and Flick. On my mother's side I am deeply vested in Virginia/West Virginia and the Hite and Manning families, as well as the Strouse family in Pennsylvania. See my Virtual Cemeteries for direct ancestors.

I have more detailed copies of photos uploaded to this site and welcome requests. If the memorial I have uploaded is not related to my family, I would be pleased to turn over ownership to a family member.

Photos on Find a Grave should never be used without permission, and the source should always be credited.

My policy is that others may use the photos of MEMORIALS I have posted for personal use, but do require that the source of the photo(s) be stated as that both credits my work and also provides provenance for the photo. Simply reference that it is a photo posted on FAG by Ellen and give the date.

Please DO NOT ever copy portraits unless you are immediately related.

Thank you.

RE: Elizabeth Hatch is wrong

I agree with you. I appreciate you seeking accuracy and truth.

Please do not forget, however that many old graves have been destroyed, cremations occur, and people die at sea, etc. and a honourable memorial is proper ! That is what findagrave is about.

Thank you very much.

Most Respectfully,

RE: Matthew O'Brien at Riverside
there are a few stone for the O'briens there and I believe Hanna is one of them... they are all in the same block, however some have no stones

Re: Mary Strother Duffields
Thanks for the info. Richard & Mary were married. But where does Elizabeth fit in? Was Elizabeth, Richard's first wife. When did he marry Mary? 1814?

Ruth Kirkendall
Hello Ellen,
On the 1900 U.S. Census, Mary Kirkendall born May 1856 living in Briar Creek is listed as a widow, 2 children and 1 alive George born April 1889. On Find A Grave on Stephen Kirkendall's memorial you have listed 2 photos. On one of the photos you can enlarge the dates and it does list 1894 for Ruth. Hoping this helps you..Pat

RE: Elizabeth Bast Bachman
No problem, glad it helps. That cem was something to get into a few yrs. ago and hasn't changed much. There is very little maintenance other than maybe Boy Scouts or local veteran's, so best walked in colder weather.
