Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started using Findagrave for my genealogy research and am now adding the veterans who have passed away from the obituaries in my hometown newspaper.

I am also involved in helping the people in the Netherlands find information about the US soldiers they have adopted who are buried in Margraten Cemetery.

I live in Florida, originally from Pennsville, NJ. My families are Zimmerman, Brandriff, Earl, Harris and Abel all from the Cumberland County area of New Jersey.

Thank you for posting Hannah Wright
Dear Mrs. Laura,

Thank you for putting the lovely Iris on my Aunt Hannah Hand Wright’s grave. My husband, Wooduff (Bud) Hand, Jr. said that his grandmother, Loretta Whilden Hand’s sister, Bessie, lived in Pennsville, NJ.

Good luck on finding the U.S Soldiers in the Netherlands. This is such a kind thing for you to do for those who are unable.

May God bless you in your efforts.

Best regards,

RE: Mr. De Christie
I added his middle name of Philip and the spelling in the first paragraph. This was the way the obit appeared in the paper. Thanks.

Mr. De Christie
I made the change to Mr. De Christie. Names such as these are often spelled both ways, with and without a space. Thanks for pointing it out to me. You can go ahead and delete your entry. Warm regards.

RE: Abraham Penn
Hello Laura, Thank you so much for contacting me. I am so sorry you were unable to contact me through my e-mail. I don't know how to correct it.
I would appreciate exchanging any photos or information regarding the Penn and Abel families!

RE: Paten Wheeler Phillips
Good Morning, Laura - thank you so very kindly. Yes, with the exception of a handful they are my family. I've created quite a few for the time I've had to work on genealogy. I've had my 93 year old Mother for four years now which has been very confining. I'll send an email when I get to my office and tell you some about my family and my work. Thank you for priceless contributions. Kindest Regards, Nancy

RE: obituaries
yes, but then I have to do all the work, and you can go on disobeying the rules. Just don't bother yourself with little things like that and taking the picture from the newspaper and adding it.

Thanks for sending them, but please make them conform to findagrave rules, especially NO LIVING PERSONS LISTED>
