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).

mont
Mont is on rear of Charlotte's stone,I mistakenly added 2 of the front and added Mont's last night. I've been having a lot of trouble loading photos this week. Mont should show now.

George James Smart & Family
Thank you for posting a memorial for this young boy. He is a distant relative of mine. He is buried with Harry Smart, Mary Segar Smart and 2 John Smarts. Was wondering if you visited the site and if there are any headstones?
I was hoping that I might add the death certificate for George to my family tree, if I can figure out how to do it!
Thanks so much!

RE: Roger & Mabel Walker
Kathy:

Thanks for transferring Roger and Mabel Walkers' memorial in Fairplains cemetery. Much appreciated. Will have to work a bit more on their families and hope to be able to add some more information.

Best and happy hunting, Barry

RE: Roger & Mabel Walker
Kathy:

Thanks for the offer. I am very,very distantly related to these folks through a collateral line that meets up with mine back in 18th century PA. Mabel's mother was a Shatto which is the connection; I'm tracing out ALL Shattos and their descendants. Mabel and Roger's story is particularly poignant and tragic and I'd like to be able to tweak it as and when new information becomes available.

I'll put in transfer requests fairly shortly, OK?

Thanks again, Barry
