Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has become my newest addiction!

Taphophilia = an abnormal love for graves and cemeteries. The love of walking cemeteries and finding lost relatives and the gravesites of ancestors.


If you've never taken a few moments to spend time in the cemetery...You're really missing out. The peace and tranquility you find in them. Those that have gone before many times have left a final message on their tombstones. These messages are an inspiration and make me feel humbled and blessed! Go ahead...take the time...walk your local cemetery and read their messages and see how they reach out and touch you! You'll be glad you did! (quoted from another find-a-graver)


We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe.


"When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

Edith C. Saner
According to the 1940 census, Edith was Frank Saner's sister, not his wife. He also had a sister Beulah living with him at that time.

RE: re: Nancy McAllister (1831 - 1865)
There were three Nancy McAllisters. The one I requested transfer of was born in Conn, married in March 1790 at upper NH, had 12 documented children and died a widow of 47 years.

The 2nd Nancy was her dau., born in upper NH, the wife of William Warren, Jr., and died at Marietta in 1857. [6756721]

A 3rd Nancy died in 1852 and is buried at Washington County Home Cemetery. [17608876] By process of elimination this Nancy was probably born circa 1836 the dau. of David McAllister and his wife Hannah. She only appears by name in the 1850 census at Washington County. Her father David McAllister and a similar aged David McAllister, latter who never left Vermont, are McAllister enigmas that I hope to soon solve.

RE: James Mullen
Thank you so much. Yes Sarah is buried at Rockland Cemetery in Belpre, Ohio. I would love to find James and Sarah's parents, but can't find a clue.

You do wonderful work!! Jim Mullen

James Mullen
This may be my great-great grandfather. The date of death matches. My records show he had a son, John J Mullen born sept 4, 1823. and that he was married to Sarah Rowland (born near 1791 in Maryland)
Are you descendants of James?

I sent a request to have her daughter from her 1st husband linked to her. (Grace Hall Corner 1899-1977)

You beat me to Irena C. Smith.
McClellan's 1st wife :)

Thanks so much for adding Patsy to this site. I have posted some new pics and was wondering if you could delete the old grave site pic as the new one is far more suited. Patsy Dawn was a joy in life and is dearly missed. Many thanks, Jessica
