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).

Thank you, Kathy, for the transfer. I really appreciate it and the care you took of him when he was "yours".

I think I should have added that Douglas' mother was Nora Kipp. She was born in Michigan, she and Henry Or Harry, divorced, she remarried Samuel McElroy and after he died in Chicago, she moved to Los Angeles and died there in 1933. I don't know where she is buried.

Douglas' wife, Grace, went on to marry twice more. She died in 1976 in Michigan. If you want more information about the other husbands, just email me and I will give you what I have. Douglas was my grandmother's cousin.

I want to Thank-you for fulfilling my photo request for Christine Bustraan. It's amazing that just in the last week I have had a number of requests fulfilled, I wonder if it is because of the approach of winter? One request that was fulfilled in the New York area solved a mystery for my wife. Her mother died in a car crash, intoxicated teenagers, in Bremerton, WA. when she was nine years old and we searched that area and could not find any evidence of her being buried there. It wasn't until a photo request was fulfilled at her dad's gravesite in New York that we found she had been buried there, which the family did not know about. Mystery solved!
