Bio and Links
Bio Photo As my Findagrave Profile name suggests, I am one of the many people to be diagnosed with Autism (Aspergers, to be specific). As one diagnosed with this syndrome, one of my characteristics is that I focus my attention around specific subjects. Most people with Autism or Aspergers may focus thier attention on dogs or subway routes. During my early high school years, I was fixated with graves after I stumbled across Findagrave. I would usually travel to cemeteries within my neck of the woods (Pennsylvania's Main Line), or whenever I was on vacation. Eventually, I felt that my fixation with cemeteries became morbid, so I slowly shifted my attention onto another subject: the US Presidents. To this day, I can still recite (1) the names of the Presidents of the United States in chronological order from George Washington to Barrack Obama, (2) the years they served in office, and (3) thier Vice Presidents. I also have an odd interest in visting State Capitol Buildings. Every once in a while, however, I would enjoy roaming around a cemetery (mainly if a President was buried in the cemetery). In October 2008, I decided to create my own Findagrave account, so here I am =)

DISCLAIMER: As of January 1, 2013, I'm taking a year off (& possibly a little longer) to spend some time away from FAG so I can focus more on my own personal life. I'll be back sometime in (or after) 2014, but right now I just need to focus on my own personal life -- meaning, until then, I do not wish to get any personal e-mails asking to fulfill FAG requests.

Photos for Kelleys
Thanks again David- this is a great photo even though it is not my grandfather. My great-grandmother Anna Lynch-Hurst, Amelia R Kelley's mother, married Benjamin W Ruth, who adopted Amelia as his own. Amelia's father had died young. This is probably a marker meant for Anna and Mr. Ruth. I appreciate this photo very much!

Wow, thanks for finding Peter Osborn after all! And three other Osborns as well! They are all in my family tree, and I'm so happy to have this additional information on them. Thanks again - Diane

John Donovan
AW-Thanks for getting the photo of John Donovan's marker...and looking for Jerome. The Sarah you found is likely John's spouse and the Howard could be a child of John and Sarah. If you got photos of those stones please post them. If you didn't, maybe next time you go out there.

Thanks again for your effort!

You Found Her!
Hi Autistic Wonderboy;
I got your message that you could not find the grave for Iva Lillian (Hagan) Gebert at West Laurel Hill, but you did state that you found a Lillian H Gebert. This is the same person! Her Findagrave number is 51974307. Also, the other persons you found have memorials on Findagrave: Russell C Gebert Jr. (91447989), Harold Gebert (51931899), and Joan Gebert (51931792). Please post the photos you have to these people. Thanks very much for taking the time to get these photos. Steve Keefe
