Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFERS.... I will transfer listings for family or other good reasons unless related to me, just tell me your relationship or reason. Most will be granted, my transfer rules are more lax than guidelines. My goal is to have all my listings turned over to family members!

IMPORTANT: If sending me information to add, please give me source of information. Do not just send something like "Maiden name was Jones". Without sources, sorry, but I will not add information. With new quick edits, this is still important. Unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source.

Find-A-Grave is an extension of my long time hobby of genealogy. I've researched the Barrick line and published a book on Johann Nicholas Barrick and his descendants, originating in the Cumberland & Perry County areas of Pennsylvania. I've searched many graveyards, seen stones that were in such disrepair, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. When I found this site, I thought it would be a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica for future genealogists.

If you find errors, let me know. If you have bio or notes to add, I'll review them and add as appropriate, I do need documentation of dates or other information before I will list it. I may add the info and use your contributor name as the source.

I'm also a volunteer photographer for the area. If you have a photo that is better than any I have posted, please post it, let me know via the "hint" and I will delete my photo if appropriate.

I try to extract obituary information for some of my memorials to honor the life of the person, which also may give some leads for my fellow genealogists doing research.

For anyone interested in family history, or genealogy in general, "The Storytellers" is a must see link. Original Author - Della M. Cummins Wright and Modified by - Della JoAnn McGinnis Johnson and Tom Dunn, tells it all in such a beautiful way...

RE: Bonny Brook Cemetery
I wouldn't see why not. The size of the plot is big enough for about 18 or so graves.
