As a result my relocation, to Florida, I will no longer be available for Pennsylvania photographs or research and it will take quite some time to become as familiar with Bay County, Florida and surrounding areas, as I was in my original home area of Armstrong County, PA.
========================

Born and raised in Apollo, Pa., which was the epitome of "Small Town USA," in the 1950's. Graduated from College, taught High School Biology for 6 years and then I grew up and joined the Navy. My goal was to Serve our country and see the world at the same time and then, after one 4 year hitch, I would resume a Teaching career. Things sometimes do not work out as planned...In 1997, after spending 22 years in the Service, I retired, back to my home, in Armstrong County, PA. Retirement has enabled me to work and concentrate on the main love of my life, which is my Family and Friends and, also enabled me the time to pursue my addiction to our family history and genealogy. There has also been ample time, left over, to engage in the secondary love of my life, which is fishing. Now, there had always been an interest in family history and genealogy and these fishing pursuits of boating, canoeing and tramping the streams, in search of the wily Trout and Bass has led me to many cemeteries, which are located in out of the way places. It is to the point...and, sometimes to the chagrin and frustration of my wife, where I cannot pass by a cemetery without "exploring a little bit." Thankfully I have married a wonderful and understanding wife, who, in spite of her seeming, sometimes frustration, just winks and grins whenever I tell her about the discovery of a "New" Cemetery...and then admonishes me to be sure not to miss anyone's stone. (As if I would, Eh?)
Many of the cemeteries, in this historic area of the country, are very old...some are grown over and a lot of markers are in advanced disrepair and are illegible. I have come to believe that we are losing our heritage and history, by allowing this to happen. After discovering Find-a-Grave, it has become easy to combine my hobbies with family history and the recording of the old cemeteries in my home area.
It is my goal to record as many of the small church or family cemeteries, as possible, in Armstrong County and adjoining counties, before I am too old to get out of the rocking chair. It is a guess there are still a few years, to go, before that occurs: I hope!

Burke,

You have posted photos of the Saint Pauls Cemetery
Also known as: Saint Pauls Congregational Church Cemetery, Saint Pauls Reformed Church Cemetery. I am told that my cousin is buried there. He was buried on Feb. 4th 1962 per his death certificate. I have two requests. Could you possibly add a headstone photo to his memorial and if possible can I transfer this memorial to you? I am in Texas. Thanking you in advance for a reply. Sandy

Thank you
Burke,

Thank you for all the work you have done in Pennsylvania for so many years. You have been a great help for me and for many others.

I am certain that you will become as helpful in Florida as you are in PA. I say _are_ because you still have lots of useful information about the folks in PA and are willing to make links and update information when it is accurate.

Thank you so much. Enjoy your new home and surroundings.

Wendy

Jacksonville UP Cemetery location
Burke,

Thank you for all of the sites you have entered here. I live in Boston, and I would like to take my father who lives in Homer City to visit the graves of our GG/G Grandfather and Grandmother (John and Ester Gilmour) which you have documented. However, I cannot find the location of the cemetery on Google Maps. Can you help?
