Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping people, photography and genealogy so visiting nearby cemeteries to provide photos is a natural fit and my pleasure.... besides it gives me some needed exercise!

If you see a memorial I created that you want to manage please email me and I will gladly transfer it to you. Please include your Contributor ID# that appears beside your name in your profile.

If you want to use any of the photos that I have taken and posted feel free to do so...just drop me a line, I may also have a different view of the photo.

I have copies of the old Philos Cemetery burial books and maps and also I have access to St James' Episcopal Church records here in Westernport.

Information for many of the Fazenbaker memorials is from the book " The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland" by Walter L. Warnick 1991.

I reside in Westernport, Allegany Co, Maryland

I have permission of the Piedmont Herald Newspaper to use their printed obituaries. The Herald is closed and no longer in business.

Hi John, Do you have the cemetery book for St. Peters Cemetery? I am looking for Ellen McCaffrey Cruise, wife of Joseph A. Cruise. Do genealogy for a friend, direct line of Joseph's son, William A. Cruise, DOD 1918. There is some connection between Cruise and Fazenbaker. Thanks.

Thank You From the Bottom of My Heart
There's no words to convey my eternal thankfulness. After I finished crying while looking at the picture, I wondered why I was so emotional. I was only 9 when Margaret died and I really didn't know her. After composing myself I realized that I feel as if you "gave me back my grandmother." I am so appreciative of your time and skills. Who knew you could bend time and help heal a little girls heart? ! Thank you, thank you, thank you! !

RE: Benjamin Gross
Thanks for locating this marker. I know how hard it can be to find a child's stone, especially as old. While I am not a relative, I am trying to make sure that all those with whom I share a name are fully memorialized.
