|Bio and Links|
|I first started taking pictures of graves of only my relatives. I would return home do a little more research and discover that I missed a few. So out I would go to take a few more photos and the same thing would occur again. After my 3rd trip to the cemetery I decided I would just photograph the whole cemetery.|
I try and do a little research on each of the stones that I photograph, using various resources. I use other people's trees for clues then try and prove those clues with documental evidence such as obituaries, census data or other records. It's a very enjoyable experience.
At first I also created a tree on Ancestry and was uploading the tombstone photograph's there as well but it became too labor intensive so now I only upload my relatives there. If you are would like to use my photographs for your family or upload them else where please do so. A link back to find a grave along with credit would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to use my photographs in a for profit venture please obtain written permission to do so.
My primary areas of interest for my own family lines are the names: Reifinger, Latshaw, Stufflet/Stofflet, Schlegel, Bower, Eck, Mertz, Day, Christman, Bock, Bennicoff, and Gruber in Berks, Pennsylvania, USA; Haney, Van Buskirk, Heller, Mills/Mill, Starner, Weiss, Hofner/Hoffner, Fetherman, Coslar, Sandt, Price, Houser, Werkheiser, and Brong in Monroe, Pennsylvania, USA.
I'm willing to transfer out of guidelines. If you are interested in doing more work on any of mine feel free to ask. Just take good care of each individual out of respect for their memory. If it is a relative of mine it may involve a little more discussion.

|Michael Silvis||Anna Maria|
To whom may concern:
On Anna Maria #78558533. Thank to Louise Floria post up photo of Anna Maria wife of Peter Altimose.
I don't think that Anna Maria last name was Silfies.
I have document from Mary Cole stated Marie Silvius
b. 1 Jan 1782 d. 9 Nov 1864.I believe this is right one but not Silfies.
Unless if you have proof where I can find.

I am trying to find a photo for you of the this person, but there are multiple Leibensperger babies in the Zion Union Maxatawny cemetery. Could you give me a date range or perhaps parents names?
|Kathy Nevin||George & Clara Kindrew/Mt Zion Cemetery|
George W and Clara E Kindrew had an additional daughter not listed with their other children. Lucy Ellen Kendrew Phillips (original spelling of grandfather's, Christian Kendrew, surname which she used) was born in 1899 and died in 1996. Her father George was born in Madison Township, Luzerne (now Lackawanna) County, Pennsylvania.
She moved to Sterling Township, Wayne County, Pennsylvania in the early 1900's to live with her uncle and aunt Frank E. and Lucy Cary Kendrew. She lived in the Sterling area the rest of her life and married Horace Phillips in 1921. They had two children, Mable Phillips Brown and Albert Phillips. Pvt Albert Phillips was KIA at Anzio, Italy and was MIA for eight years and is now interred in the Ardennes American Cemetery in Belgium.
Lucy is buried in the Sterling, Wayne County, Pennsylvania cemetery.
Thanks so much for the updates.
Am sure there will be others!!

|John Cameron||Jesse Siglin #16322361|
Hello, You maintain the memorial for Jesse Siglin in the Old Brodheadsville Cemetery. He could be linked to his father, Johann Jacob Heinrich Siglin #97741886, in the Salem Church Cemetery in Gilbert. Heinrich is my 4th great grandfather. Thanks John Cameron
Hello - please contact me re the Hufsmith family (Sarah Catherine Hufsmith's first husband was my direct ancestor Benjamin Bernhard Beears (Find A Grave Memorial# 44220824), who I realize you don't have linked to the family, but I think I can supply you with ample evidence, incl. the photo of Benjamin B that I added to his page last night.
Between your pages, and some from Find A Grave users Tom Myers and K Beears, there are a lot of memorials for this family that are not sufficiently well linked.
Thanks - hope I do have all of this correct, but I have some first-hand family sources -
