Bio and Links
All photos of graves that I have posted were taken by me and may be copied freely and posted on other websites. There is no need to credit me or identify me when they are so used and no need to request permission beforehand. I won't be annoyed if you do anyway, but it really isn't necessary for the grave photos taken by me. Most photos of persons that I have posted were not taken by me. Please check the photo caption to determine the source (most often an obituary).

The photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera, which takes 4896x3672 (18M-pixel) images. The original JPG files are 6-7 MB in size. I then use GIMP, an open source image processing program that can be downloaded for free from, to rotate, crop and rescale the images. Usually I set the horizontal resolution to 1200 pixels, sometimes up to 1600 for panoramic scenes. I use a compression "quality" setting of 50 to 70, most often 60 to 65. The resulting picture files are usually 250 to 300 kB, with some up to 400 kB. Limiting the file size to that range allows snappy downloads when opening the image at full resolution.

Robert Glennon
Robert Glennan was my grandmother's uncle. He was a riverboat pilot on the Chester and Delaware rivers. He was an inmate at the Little Sisters of the Poor in Wilmington, DE from before 1930. The Glennan name has been spelled different ways. My grandmother lost her parents at age 12. She and her sisters lived with aunts and uncles on their mother's side. This part of the family spells the name Glenan. The rest of her father's family appear to spell as Glennan. That is why I tried to change Robert's name. Putting an 'o' was probably a transcription error.
I have encountered this problem with other relatives from time to time.

RE: Photo posted to wrong memorial
Thanks for heads up. Someone put wrong info stating that your Peters was the one from Civil War.

Thank you for all of the missing data on the grave pictures. I am not a data person but 47 stones with more meaning is fantastic! Where did you find it all?

gertrude lucy owens gallagher
re: Gertrude born 1900 died 1987 buried at All Saints cemetery in Delaware... The sibling list for her is incomplete. There was another brother named Joseph Owens. He lived near Aston or Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, near Claymont, Delaware. Although he lived nearby, Gertrude did not like Joe very much and they never visited. She disapproved of his drinking. Maybe that's a factor in his absence from the sibling list. She felt much closer to her other brother who lived in Mount Carmel, PA. He is the one who appears on the list.

RE: Ethel A Smith (1909-1993) and Gordon C Smith (1909-1960)
Awesome thanks Eric. The details in the marriage record connects a lot of dots. Gordon died in PA so I have the death certificate. This has been an interesting trip as my cousin was always told he was reported as MIA from WW2 and never knew what happen to him. Appears to be an untold story here...Kelly

Ethel A Smith (1909-1993) and Gordon C Smith (1909-1960)
Hi Eric,

You posted memorials for the two people above. Do you know anything about them? They are relatives of mine and I have some info but nothing about when they got married or children. Gordon Calvin was born in Canada and I believe Ethel Agnes (nee Foley) was born in Marlborough Mass. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Kelly M Smith (Mr.)
