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.

H Clay Swartzwelder
Thank you so much for the photo of H Clay Swartzwelder. He was my 2x great grandfather. He is often confused with his brothers Harrison C Swartzwelder and Hale Swartzwelder. It's disappointing that his wife and children aren't next to him. Thanks again for your efforts. It is much appreciated. Jill Sivak

RE: memorials for great grandparents
Thank you again, Please consider this my formal request for photos of James Henry Johnston and Anna Martha Johnston's grave markers. If you would like me to send it to your private email I would be happy to do so. I appreciate you doing this for me, I monkeyed around with the glaring photo I have and may put it up till you send me another/better one.

Kind regards,

memorials for great grandparents
Hi John,

Today I sent you a edit request for my great grandfather, when I checked for his wife # 125809427 I saw that there isn't a photo for her. Do you have one you could add? my photos have glare on them and so are not as good as yours. Would you be interested in transferring these 2 memorials to me? My # is 48026194. Perhaps I can get someone on the Garret Co. forum to take a good photo for me.

Thank you

Thank you for locating and posting the obituary for Luke Harbaugh.. It seems like posting the obituary automatically fulfilled my photo request. I would still like a photo of his headstone, if one exists, so I will try to put in another photo request. But I wanted you to know that I appreciate the obituary very much.
