Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in NJ. I have lived here all my life. I have been doing my family genealogy since 1996. I love walking through and transcribing cemeteries.

Some of the memorials I have created and manage are ancestors of mine, and many of them are not. I try to add as much as possible to the memorials so that others researching their families can get information on their families. I welcome any corrections to the memorials I have created. Sometimes information sent can be incorrect, the dates on graves hard to read, etc.

I think findagrave is excellent, but when you wish to add memorials, please make sure that someone else has NOT already added that person. Duplicate memorials are confusing to other researchers. I have found many cases where I have created memorials and someone else has created another one AFTER mine. If you discover a memorial has already been created by someone else and you are family to the person added, please contact the submitter for a transfer. Also, adding memorials to findagrave because you ASSUME the person is buried there is also confusing to other researchers. If you do not know do NOT add it. This website is to help others, not to see how many memorials you can add.

The cemeteries that I have added memorials from include:
Canton Baptist Church Cemetery in Canton, NJ
First Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ
Baptist Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ
East View Cemetery in Salem, NJ
St. Mary's Cemetery in Salem, NJ
Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Greenwich, Cumberland Co. NJ
Saint John's Episcopal Churchyard in Salem City, Salem Co., NJ.

I usually honor requests for memorial transfers if the memorial is a relative of the requester, but please do not expect large numbers of memorials to be transferred at a moments notice. I will transfer them as MY time allows.

**PLEASE DO NOT ADD INFORMATION IN THE NOTE SECTION TO MY ANCESTORS MEMORIALS. USE THE EDIT TAB AND SEND ME YOUR SUGGESTION WITH THE SOURCE OF YOUR INFORMATION. I HAVE SPENT MANY YEARS DOING MY FAMILY HISTORY AND THERE HAS BEEN INCORRECT INFORMATION POSTED IN THE NOTE SECTION**

**PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT accept an edit linking children to their Mother when the Mother has married after the death of her first husband and you have her first married name listed as a maiden name. Per Findagrave: They are to be listed as first name, middle name (if any) and current married name. Anything else causes confusion. You can put all names, husbands, etc in bio section of the memorial.

**PLEASE USE THE EDITS FEATURE OF FINDAGRAVE TO SUBMIT INFORMATION OR CORRECTIONS TO MEMORIALS. I will NOT correct if they are not sent through the edits feature. Too many emails are jamming my inbox AND information being sent to correct is NOT for the actual memorial needing to be corrected/updated. I have no problem correcting memorials but I am NOT going to spend my time having to hunt for the correct memorial.

**PLEASE DO NOT ADD INFORMATION TO NOTES YOU LEAVE ON MEMORIALS CREATED BY ME (Parent's names, maiden name, birth information, etc). USE THE EDITS TAB AND SEND THE INFORMATION.

Alyssa
Hello!
Hello my name is Alyssa and recently came across a family ancestry book and I found a lot of my ancestors in one cemetery. Could you please upload some pictures of the headstones please. They are the Ware family. I sent a request and since there are several I didn't want to over run you. Thank you so much for putting this names in. This has helped me so much in my search for my ancestors.

RE: Tyler Family
Ok, if you were related, there's an auction on eBay right now with photographs of most of the Tyler clan. Hopefully someone in their family knows it's there.

Corrections
Thanks for making all my corrections. I welcome your input because as you know I am working off of handwritten lists from information copied from tombstones made many years ago. Many of the information is too faded to read now. It's nice to have the information checked from other sources. I welcome any corrections.

Hi Dawn,


I have that info you sent, and here is the info you need:
Rosalie Martha Stow
died.-2-11-2007, Belle, Kanawha, West Virginia
Rosalie and Bill had five children.

Violet Stow
Born-1915 Salem, New Jersey
died-4-1-2001 Pennsville, NJ
Son Edward Neicen Jr

Dawn, are you related to any of them? If so, I have a baby photo of Violet, alone and both Violet and Rosalie with my Knox and Stow family. If you are interested I will send them to you. Also, I just thought of it, I have a photo of an older Rosalie if you are interested.
Thanks for all your info Dawn,
Steve

Rachel E. Dilkes Sagars, First Presbyterian Cemetery
Hi Dawn,

You have listed Rachel Dilkes Sagars in the First Presbyterian Cemetery. According to her daughters 2nd marriage record - you are correct. I was just wondering does the cemetery stone spell the last name as "sagars"? Do you have a picture of the grave site?

Richard G Hadley
Good morning Dawn,

I had some tome last night to go into my family tree and confirm your information and make the changes to Richard's memorial. However the site would not accept the change in the family relations section. I went back in this morning and the change was accepted.

I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. I was born in Salem but now live near San Francisco. Have many memories of the Salem/Pennsville area.

I would love to get some current photo's of my childhood home on Harding Ave. in Pennsville. Is this something you could add to your resume?

Thanks again,
John Lodge
