Bio and Links
Born and raised in Southwest Detroit I have been interested in genealogy for many years. I have been supporting the Maryland, Michigan and Pennsylvania Genweb for over 10 years. I also support Find a Grave. In addition to supporting Find a Grave please consider contributing to State Genweb projects and local county sites.

If you'd like to copy my photographs for private use please contact me. Please do not use my photographs to post on other sites without attribution. I ask this out of respect for everyone's work capturing these photographs is a journey of blood, sweat and tears (freezing cold, heat, bugs, snakes and a sometimes grumpy hubby.) :)

Please note that I only transfer memorials according to FindAGrave guidelines. Also, I do not post information taken from other sites. PLEASE do not troll other sites listing memorials and then take them and post them to FindAGrave under your name, this includes the photos. I have been a victim of that and it is just not nice, to say the least, to find that has been done.

RE: Samuel Johnson, Hill Grove Cemetery
Thanks for checking. I think I figured it out by: tracking down the census records > identifying his wife (Sophia) > looking up civil war pension indexes.

Bates' regiment history has him listed in 41st Reg., Co. H, 12th Reserves (hence the "2"). This would make sense, since the regiment was partly mustered in Indiana County, where the family originates.

Samuel Johnson, Hill Grove Cemetery

Thanks for all the info you've posted.

I'm researching Samuel Johnson d. 1909; you provided a photo from Hill Grove Cemetery at

I was wondering if you had a full transcription, or if the inscription is more legible on your original? I can read the dates, I am more interested in the military regiment info that is posted above that. It looks like ???2 REG PA VOL.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Percy Family Grave Markers
Email requesting permission to use photos. Thanks for your work in recording grave marker photos on the Find a Grave Website. I wonder if your photos are copyright or am I allowed to add them to my family tree on I will give you the photo credit eg Photo Credit: Thanks to "Mary Green Kerr" Find a Grave Website, Memorial no .. photo used with permission. I wish to use many of your photos of the PERCY family that relate to my family tree. The first one I came across was of David W Percy 1580-1911 Find A Grave #83823109. Since then I found many more of the Percy family you have added.I can also give you some extra information re families attached to your memorials. HOWEVER I DO NOT WANT MEMORIALS of this family, but am happy to give you extra info to add to Find A Grave as you wish. Please let me know if I can add your photos of grave markers to my tree on with you as photo credit. Also please let me know if you want the family links. Kind Regards Barb Muir Gillespie from Victoria in Australia

Re: Harry E. Dorsey #86135297
Thank you for quickly adding the notes for Harry E. Dorsey. We have not found the memorials for his mother Charlotte Ann KNIPPLE DORSEY b. abt. 1850 & d. abt. 1884 or his father William L. Dorsey b. abt. 1847. We do know they moved from Bedford Co./Somerset Co. to Scottsdale in 1883. And thank you for taking the photograph and posting it!!

Hi Mary, Thank you for the updates and links and the credit for information. One of my little passions is linking families and thus I have been one on the frequent flier list on your edit page recently. I truly appreciate all of your efforts. Best regards, Jan

Hill Grove book
Mary, as I said, made corrections in my spreadsheet from obvious errors that I found in the book itself, and I also am making corrections as I find them from photos I take of stones. Is it okay with you if I also make corrections by gleaning info from your Findagrave photos, considering a time when I will finally offer the corrected spreadsheet to the Historical Society to produce a book if they choose? I would, of course, credit you for your work.
