*****If I have a picture of a tombstone already on the memorial, please do not add another. Adding multiple pictures of the same stone clog up the memorial and other pictures can not be added by the family when transferred. Thank you.******
****A big THANK YOU to all of the people who contribute to Find A Grave, whether it is adding memorials, pictures, taking volunteer photos or adding flowers/token. We all make this a wonder site and a wealth of information****
I was thrilled when I found this site. I have loved cemeteries since I was little and love the thought of making memorials for those we loved and those long ago forgotten about.
I like to wander the cemetery and try to photograph an entire section. Not always an easy task. But well worth the effort.
If you see any errors or have additional information to add to my listings please let me know using the edit tab on the memorial.
Also, if we share any ancestors please contact me, I would love to share information, pictures, etc. My family names are my virtual cemeteries.
If you send me an email and do not hear from me, please send it again or send me a message thru the edit tab on the memorial. I see a lot of email from FAG contributors in my junk box. Not sure why some go there and some go to my inbox.

Sorry to barge in but I had to comment.
Take a look at some of the names in my virtual cemetery 'They were people, too'...
Bonus: The Simmonds couple A.R. & his wife
And there was a Santa Claus - check Carl Braatz at Cedar Hill in Suitland Md.
I love your profile name!

You are amazing!
Here is an article about the funny tombstones I had set up in Lorraine Park Cemetery in Baltimore. One of them is already on findagrave.com but mine and my sister's isn't. And really should be. I mean, most modern tombstones are so boring. Maybe they should have no name but just a social security number. The older tombstones are much more descriptive and creative.
|Eleanor Dyment||Anina Stauffen|
I had no idea my grandfather was sick with it, too. He was Frederick Charles Stauffen, buried at Lorraine Park Cemetery in Baltimore. He was only 18 at the time his sister Anina died. He lived to become a marine engineer (he built contraptions for lifting ships and that kind of thing) and married sometime during WWI to Jeanette Eisenbrandt Stauffen who died in October 1918 at the age of 24 from the Spanish flu epidemic. (I just found her name--it was a family secret-- last week at the MD state archives.) She had a stillborn baby, who turned black from the sickness, and she turned black, and died. Freddy tried to throw himself out the window but was restrained by relatives. A few months later he met my grandmother, Elsie Keitel Stauffen, and fell in love. They married and had three kids, one of them my mother, Louise Stauffen. I had funny gravestones made for my uncle Walter, my sister and myself at Lorraine Park. I would like to send you a photo of them. They made the Washington Post a year or so ago. Most gravestones these days are SO BORING!
|Eleanor Dyment||thanks so much!|
You have inspired me to become a photographer/contributor. I love walking cemeteries and looking at the stories that unfold on the stones. Epidemics, death in childbirth, accidents, etc. Now I can help others to find their lost relatives and uncover the whispered stories of the past.
Where did you find that obituary? I will go to the MD state archives to find Anina's death certificate and see what she died of. She was so young and beautiful and talented, never even got the chance to marry. We have gorgeous photos of her. Based on her death certificate, I will be able to find her birth certificate and will add that info to your site. Are you in Baltimore?
|Eleanor Dyment||grave of Anina Stauffen|
Thank you so much for taking the photo of the grave of Anina Stauffen in Loudoun Cemetery in Baltimore. My sister, cousins and I have been trying to find out when this great-aunt of ours died and where she was buried. The family spoke in whispers of her death. Apparently she had something thought to be catching and her mother and father kept their distance. When they checked on her in her room, she was dead! So there was a lot of guilt and horror behind her story. I have been checking Baltimore death records from 1914-1918, thinking she died at that time, but your photo let me know she died earlier, in 1910. Now I can find her death certificate in the archives and find out what she really died of. Thanks so much for solving this mystery of my great-aunt. She died young, was an award-winning musician and graduate of the Peabody Conservatory. It means a lot to us.
