Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in genealogy for 30 years now. I have only more recently gotten involved in documenting family headstones. Many of my ancestors on my mother's side of the family (including two 4x great grandfathers and one 4x great grandmother) are buried in Woodmere Cemetery in Detroit. The memorials that I have created to date are mostly my own relatives - although many of them are distantly related.

My latest family tree project relates to the expansive Harbart family, to which I am indirectly related through the 2nd marriage of one of my great great grandmothers. However a very dear family member asked for my help with this family, and I am now hopelessly hooked. There are hundreds (likely thousands) of descendants from just one man - Erdmann Harbart, who lived 1726-1813 in the Thorn/Torun area of Prussia (now Poland), and who had at least 17 children from 2 wives. Many of these descendants emigrated to the United States, and those that didn't were forcibly resettled in Germany after World War II. Only a small number remain in present day Poland.

If you would like to use one of the photos that I have posted here on this site, please feel free to do so, but I would greatly appreciate it if you would give me credit for the photo when using it on other sites. All of the photos I have taken are already posted on, so you should be able to find the pictures there (my family tree is publicly viewable).

RE: Millers in Mount Hope
I am so glad that you found the memorials and thank-you for your kind words. When I photograph headstones I sometimes find family headstones near each other and make a point of taking a photo showing all of the headstones in one of the photos. Then I a little research to establish the relationships and note it in the caption of the photo. When family finds the results of my research it is a bonus.

Since he is related to you, would you like me to transfer his memorial to you? I would be more than happy to do so.
