Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2004. I am retired and live in Gambrills, Maryland. My main genealogy interests are in Western Maryland and S. Central Pennsylvania. My wife is also involved in her genealogy in Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. We visit cemeteries to find our ancestors' stones and markers. I enjoy photographing the monuments.

Main families of interest are Minnich (Minich), Keefauver, Lemen, Harsh and Stone, Craig, Lydic, and Buterbaugh. Others are Johnston, Swonger, Lloyd, and Miner.

If I have made a duplicate, please contact me and it will be deleted quickly. Use edit button to add corrections. Also, since only five free photo spots per memorial are allowed in findagrave, please do not add unnecessary photos to any memorials. Save room for future personal photos from family. Unnecessary photos include close-up photos of the plot number on markers and the cemetery plot signs. The plot number should be entered in the Bio plot section of the memorial not as a picture. Obituaries should be typed in the Bio sect and not added as photos. Transfers may be made if you ask using the EDIT button and also state relationship. You have my permission to use my grave stone / marker photos for your private use. For any use of my family or my rescue-orphan photos please contact me. Hopefully, you will source or link the photos. It never hurts to give someone credit for helping you.

I have been purchasing "orphan-rescue" antique photos with names sufficient to search and find a 'home' for them. Some success has been had. There are photo albums of Hellyers (Seneca F., etc. - PA) and Hopkins (Arthur, Lewis, etc.) that are awaiting family. Please visit my Rescue-Orphans Virtual Cemetery.

I try to be a friend to all and will help where possible.

Findagrave is as good as we make it.

William and Carrie Conrad

I am the grandson of William A. Conrad (85610011) and Carrie M. Conrad (85609973) buried at Hillcrest Memorial cemetery in Annapolis. Would it be possible to transfer "ownership" of their two memorial pages to me?

Cedar Hill Cemetery: Muelhause/Muehlhause
Mr. Mike - THANK YOU for all the photos from Cedar Hill. It's because of you that I've been able to identity "lost" family members because of both the photos and the plot locations.

I wanted to pass along that it looks like you have duplicate listings for the following:

Picture of Headstone
Thank you for the picture of Mickey's headstone. I was not aware that he was in the military, but now want to thank him for his service on our reunion page. Much appreciated.
