Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a volunteer photographer for Find-A-Grave. I do not mind my photos being copied (unedited and uncropped, please) and used on other websites like All I ask is that you attach the following credit so others know the original source and can contact me if needed:

by MixedStock at Find-A-Grave. Photo used by permission.

I manage many memorials outside of my family and am happy to transfer per the rules or make any changes and corrections. Please send your source along with corrections. I've had people try to "correct" information on my own relatives that I knew for a fact was wrong. So please try to supply your sources.

As for my personal genealogy research, I am just traveling this very interesting road and uncovering the roots of ancestors who left few records in their wake. If I can help someone make that connection I am happy to do so!

Family names I am researching:
Bennett, Clune, Costello, Dmuchowski, Donnelly, Groft, Hayes, Hennessy, Hiemstra, Hughes, Kamyszek/Kamyshek, Karpanty/Korpanty, Kelly, Kennedy, Krup/Krupp, Lyons, Melody, Moszynka, Moyer, Murphy, O'Hara, Reynolds, Sexton, Stanners, Szabska, Wallace, and Wisniewski.

RE: Sam Parks
Hello, I am also a Find A Grave volunteer so know exactly what it means and the time it takes to make sure those that have left us are remembered. In regards to Sam Parks, I have been searching for his burial site for about 3 years now. He is the brother of my grt grt grandfather Thomas Parks. Thomas is buried in Hamburg, Livingston County at Placeway Cemetery. I have a certified copy of Samuel's death certificate I obtained while in Ann Arbor two summers ago. He passed away in Scio Township. I would greatly appreciate it if you would transfer management of his memorial # 129553485 buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Dexter to me.
Best Regards,
T. Jacob

RE: Shaeffer question
Hello, I am so sorry I never answered you. The information I sent you on the Shaeffer burials at St. Paul's Church (aka Old Stone Church) came from a book published by the West Shore Genealogical Society. It was transcribed from the church records, but I believe you might be correct about the spelling error. I have found other errors in this book. The online list matches the spelling on the stones. You could call the church at 717-697-9675 and maybe they could verify it for you. I would check for you but I work during the day and there's not usually anyone there in the evenings or on weekends for me to check with. I didn't find a Sadie Gutshall Shaeffer in the book, but I did find a Sadie Gutshall, 1867-1888. She is listed twice in the book, with the same birth/death dates, but different burial locations and different lot owners. I think this is an error too. In fact, it looks like there are many errors on this page of the book. I must have taken a picture of this stone and it must have said Sadie Gutshall Shaeffer. I wrote that in my book because she wasn't listed under Shaeffer. I never thought to look for Sadie Gutshall before today. I'll go through my pictures and see if I can find one for her. It may take me a while because I have a lot of pictures from this cemetery. Also, are you sure Groff is correct? The reason I ask is, there are no Groff burials in this cemetery, but there are a few Gross burials. Sometimes the way they wrote a double "s" back then, it would look like a double "f". I'll try to be a little quicker to get back to you on the picture. Wendy :)

I have deleted, however F.A.G. rules are nothing after 1931. There are numerous pre-needs up, and many memorials with no death dates, although the person has passed.

Edward Miller Photo
Thank you so very much for getting the photos of Edward Millers headstone for me. It means a lot to me to have a photo of my grandpas stone and being on the west coast made it a little hard for me to go get it. Thanks again!
