Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first discovered the fun and challenges of genealogical research just in 2010, starting with a tree sent by a cousin in England. Since then I have been on a mission to find as many family members, both dead and alive, as I can. I have connected with living cousins all over the country and even new ones in the UK.

More recently I've obtained extensive genealogical notes from my paternal great-grandmother that she accumulated over her 97 years. I'm on a mission to find and connect them on FAG as I add them to my tree. It has gone from 0 to 2063 people in just over a year with her help!

It has been a fascinating journey!! I am pulling together family info to share in several ways, including virtual cemeteries here, geni trees and google sites. I am happy to help anyone else when I visit cemeteries containing my family and/or nearby my home if I can.

Major family lines include Alkes/Elkes, Klepper, and Fenster from Europe; Knapp, Becroft, Burbidge, Nott, Clark, Summers, Whittaker and Williams from CT; Culver, Ford and Kuykendall out west; and Archambault, Marcher, Provost, Nolan, Flanders from VT. I'm hoping my efforts here serve generations to come. Special thanks to Barb Destromp in VT and Jan Franco in CT who have created so many of my family memorials before I knew they were family!! Barb in particular has made hundreds of corrections for me I think!

I haven't created many that are not my family or friends but I'd be happy to transfer to someone who wants to take good care of them.

Happy Family Hunting!

Adelaide Lennerton Ferguson Farrow
Judi - thank you for posting graves to Find A Grave. On Adelaide: you have the dates for Adelaide Ferguson who was the d/o Capt John Ferguson but was NOT the wife of John B. Farrow. That Adelaide was the niece of Adelaide Ferguson, & was the daughter of Charles Barkley Ferguson. She was born 12 Sep 1896 and died 27 Aug 1950.

RE: Cameron, Unitarian church cemetery
I completed photographing this cemetery in 2014. Could I have missed some memorials? Sure. More likely, there are some interred without memorials. Surely the church will have some recordings. This is still and active cemetery.

Cameron, Unitarian church cemetery
You're welcome. I only photograph memorials and let serendipity sort out their discovery. I have no further knowledge of names and history. If you wish xfer of this memorial to you, just let me know.

RE: George Fravel

You are welcome and thank you for the transfer. There is a contributor in my message list with interest in the PA 11th, maybe he can help us with John. It would be safe to assume that the burial next to John is his spouse and I will make the link. Happy hunting!--Storres

RE: John Fravel

What a disappointment. Please transfer him back to me. I will get his photo and try to find military service information for his bio. I know where he is located and what time of day to visit the cemetery. His marker is probably a well weathered upright marble slab and hard to read. I had hoped he was in the 11th in one of the companies from the Lock Haven area under command of my wife's GG Grandfather. No such luck.--Storres

John Fravel Memorial

I found John Fravel, Find A Grave Memorial# 154437825, in the Zion Cemetery, Zion PA. I created a memorial for him and transferred him to you in order to avoid confusion with another Zion Cemetery in Centre County. You can delete my memorial when you transfer yours. Your photo request will be fulfilled quickly by a contributor, Beth, who drives by the cemetery regularly. A memorial for his wife is also in this cemetery and she lies next to John and her inscription is wife of John. Good luck .--Storres

Judi, I decided to leave her record on the website since Old Wethersfield Cemetery is a very significant historical cemetery and decided it important that the photos be able to be viewed to show her name on it. I did though note your comment and about her burial in Cedar Hill Cemetery and the other record for that. Are you willing to make some note in the Cedar Hill Cemetery record about her name being on her parents' family memorial located in Old Wethersfield? I hope you agree with me on this. If not, any suggestions?
