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.

RE: White Clay Creek Presbyterian Cemetery
Yes, Sir... I just got a copy of the one prepared in 1984 by Lucy Hazen Barnes and Martha Whitcraft in conjunction with the Delaware Genealogical Society (Tombstone Survey). I can email you a copy. All the best, -Hal

Harding, Denning, Grogan, Murphy, etc.
Thank you for doing this. The above families are some of my brick walls. I believe they are connected to Michael Harding and Ellen English from Philadelphia (as were most of their families). Ellen was the daughter of Edmund English and Mary Hanrahan. Ellen married James Murphy after Michael Harding passed away and she and her sister Ellen Marilla (Harding)Denning and their families apparently lived in Wilmington for many years. You have helped me greatly in straightening out these relationships. Many, many thanks.

P.S. If anyone is researching these families, my e-mail address is

RE: Vincent Joseph Colombo
Hello, I reposted the picture to the other memorial, so you can delete yours whenever you are ready. Also, I found you have another duplicate. I posted a photo to both individuals but as yours is the later created memorial I thought yours would be the one to remove. Your copy of the memorial is #109176541, and the original one is #33342341, and they both surround Luigi "Louis" Colombo.

Thank you for the proof. I added the marriage license info on her memorial.

Fidelia Hewitt Eckerd
Where did you obtain the info for the edits that you sent for her? I found the death certificate for Nancy Eckerd with those dates, but not the parents you have sent. I'm not sure the edits are correct for her.
