Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have helped you with a photo or such..then you are welcome! All I ask is that you return a random act of kindness to someone in need.

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.

Memorial #138668991
Hi John, Herald was my great uncle. Can you please transfer ownership of this memorial to me. Also, is there a photo of the marker? I would like to link him to my grandmother's family.

Thank you so much, Bev

RE: Sigler graves
Hi John,
Chris is my third cousin, so I know about the years of work he has done here and on Ancestry. He's been a big help to me.
Will be in Westernport late April and plan to attend the genealogical society meeting. Perhaps I'll run into you there.
Thanks for the offer on the Sigler grave site - Chris gave me a phone number to call but if that doesn't work, I'll ask for your help.
I'm a descendant of the Jacob - Phillip - George Thomas - John Sylvanas Sigler line, if that helps to place me in Allegany County history.
John Sylvanas married Jannet Mackay - thus the interest in connecting the Mackay family graves.
Thanks again for establishing the graves on Find A Grave! They have been a big help in my research, and I'm sure other people's research as well.

James & Mary Mackay
John,
Thanks so much for all your hard work in creating memorials for the old Allegany county cemeteries. It is greatly appreciated!
I'd also like to thank you for processing my edits so quickly. There may be more - James & Mary had 8 children, each of whom married and had large families. I'm still working my way through the family, but it cheers my heart to see the connections appear.
Finally, I thank you for transferring my great-great-grandparents to my care. I'm looking forward to writing their biographies - and to locating all the "lost" graves.
