My name is David Shannon and I have been researching several family lines and have located cemeteries in the quest for gathering information on my ancestors.  I am making this genealogy information available to those that may find it useful. I am sharing information I have gathered based on family memories and information gathered from actual tombstones and from family interviews and written records.  My purpose is 2-fold.  I hope if you are searching and find this site it is helpful to you...  And if you can provide more information of my family history, please contact me.  I can be contacted at this link:     e-mail for David Shannon
