Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I enjoy photographing tombstones for FindAGrave. I have even been known to dig stones out of the ground. :)

I do not consider my photographs "copyrighted". I post them for the sole purpose of helping other genealogists in their family research. However, if you post the photos on ancestry or another website, photo credit would be appreciated. :)

My goal is not to impress others by high numbers. I create many memorials just so they are documented, and try to add pertinent information to them. I'm more than willing to transfer these memorials to someone who can take better care of them, as long as they are not my relatives.

Surnames I am researching: Solomon-Haberman (Jennings Co. IN & Saline Co. MO); Stoneking-Livingston-Long (Greene Co. PA & Tyler Co. WV); Wagaman-Turner (Missouri, Kansas, Washington); Pannekoek-DeVoogd-Waterloo (Kent Co. MI); LePard-Densmore (Kent, Ionia & Barry Co., MI); Kirby-Payne (Howard Co. MO); Riggle-Guist-Ortz (PA & OH).

Pic. at Oak Grove
Kathy, I know you did not do it intentionally. At Oak Grove Cemetery in Hillsdale you have posted pictures on some of my memorials. I have worked many hours researching the memorials at Oak Grove Cemetery. I also have taken pictures of all the approximately 9000 tombstones. I research and, last but not least, post my pictures, only to find pictures have already been posted. So I am asking, would please remove your pictures at Oak Grove Cemetery in Hillsdale, Mich.
Thank you, JOT

Hessey & Edison Headstones
Thanks ever so much for the headstone photos of Hessey & Edison headstones. Yesterday was a unusually nice day for the region. Today promises to be nearly as nice, so in honer of your kindness I shall do some volunteer work of my own in a local cemetery.

God Bless You
