Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in NJ. I have lived here all my life. I have been doing my family genealogy since 1996. I love walking through and transcribing cemeteries.

I think findagrave is excellent, but when you wish to add memorials, please make sure that someone else has NOT already added that person. Duplicate memorials are confusing to other researchers. If you discover a memorial has already been created by someone else and you are family to the person added, please contact the submitter for a transfer. Also, adding memorials to findagrave because you ASSUME the person is buried there is also confusing to other researchers. If you do not know do NOT add it. This website is to help others, not to see how many memorials you can add.

The cemeteries that I have added memorials from include: Canton Baptist Church Cemetery in Canton, NJ; First Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ; Baptist Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ; East View Cemetery in Salem, NJ; St. Mary's Cemetery in Salem, NJ; The Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Greenwich, Cumberland Co. NJ; and The New Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Greenwich, Cumberland Co. NJ.

I usually honor requests for memorial transfers if the memorial is a relative of the requester, but please do not expect large numbers of memorials to be transferred at a moments notice. I will transfer them as MY time allows.

Please do NOT add anything to my family memorials if you do not have factual information or state that the information is a theory. Erroneous information benefits no one.

Thank you.

Dawn, thank you for the transfer and all the work you have done there in South Jersey. I was born in Salem, but have spent most of my life in VA and CA, so it is helpful having people like you doing the leg work.

RE: James D. and Hannah M. Stites
There you go!

Glad you found your relatives. I wish I had a map and could offer you a area where to find them. I see you are in NJ. I trip over to Mt Pleasant Cemetery wouldn't disappoint.

RE: John P. Stites and Lydia Stites
No I am not a relative. I will transfer them to you.

All the best!

RE: Caroline
When I added Carrie four years ago, I didn't know anyone else already had her in Findagrave. I am related through my late husband. She was his great, great grandmother on his father's side. Are you also related to her?

John and Flora Fahrner from Scotland
Hi Dawn!
My mum and I were talking today for some reason about some ancestors she always grew up hearing about. I decided to google them and found you!

In short, we are related through Flora Shaw. Flora was the sister of my great-great grandmother. My mum was born in Glasgow in 1959, daughter of Muriel Shaw Gray Dias. My mum said that they had always heard what a sad day it was when Flora and her children left Scotland. They knew they went to Salem, but my grandma never knew if it was Mass. or NC...didn't even know of Salem, NJ at the time. They knew they were glassblowers? My mum has some photos of a few of John and Flora's children, specifically of Elizabeth born in France and her little brother. My mum was unsure of who they really were until I googled the family today and found all your information here on John and Flora's children. I was amazed!

I cannot find your email address, but my mum and I would love to connect with you. My mum actually lives in New Jersey (Freehold). She is I can be reached at

Thanks for all your time inputting information here! Hope we can compare genealogy sometime, my mum and I would love to see more pictures of the family.
