Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer living in Michigan who fills in many of his days with golf and woodworking.

But my favorite retirement activity is discovering my family genealogy history along with the stories and oral history as it has been passed down through the generations.

I have documented 7000+ family member's genealogy using MyHeritage software on a private family web site. Now I am adding some of my ancestors to Find A Grave to make some of my findings public.

Family names being researched include: Brock, Weaver, Critchlow, Yetter, Gilchrist, McFadden, Ellenberger, Orr, Miller, VanDyke, Hoffman, Stevens, Shaffer, Atwell, Snay and Ghost.

Genealogy records available for any branches of my family if you are related to one of my documented memorials. Also fell free to use any of my posted photos. Higher quality versions are usually available for the asking.

Webster family bible
I see you made a page for Levi Webster.
I was just looking at old family bibles on EBay and saw one with Levi Webster's family bible with a bunch of family info written into it from the 1800's.
Then I went looking for someone on Find A Grave to see if I could find anybody who might be interested in this priceless treasure.
Just search EBay with this and you will find it=

Ada Drebert, Evans City cemetery
I found a death certificate for an Ada Drebert Altenbaugh, husband John Altenbaugh, parents Herman Drebert and Sophie Ift. 16 Mar 1883-26 Feb 1949. She was buried in the North Cemetery in Butler, PA. Could this be the same person?

RE: Joseph Gilghrist Photo - Thanks
Thanks, Jack, for your prompt reply and expression of gratitude. However, I'm not very pleased with the way this photo turned out. I'm going to get another shot at a different time of day to see if different lighting makes the text on the headstone more readable.
