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.

Daniel Shellhammer
Hello Ellen,
Thank you for your message concerning Daniel Shellhammer 1784-1873
As you know this Daniel is the son of Philip Jacob 1759-1836, who is the son of Hans Jurg Schellhammer 1727-1797.
I will be happy to enter his birthplace that is listed on the American Genealogical-Biographical Index which is Ger, Pennsylvania.
My Great Great Grandfather and Grandmother, Moses and Martha Shelhammer, are also buried in the Plum Grove Cemetery not far from Daniel's headstone. In the early 1980's there was a different headstone for Daniel that was brought to my attention too.
On the 1870 census Daniel was living with his son John 1811-1899 and his wife Lovina. Daniel was born in Pennsylvania but migrated to Ohio and on to Michigan.
Thank you again,

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
