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 once again for fulfilling my photo requests. I am afraid there may be some more as I do more research.

Hi Kathy, I had wondering if you would be willing to transfer some other Steinbrecher Family members. You had transferred Henry Steinbrecher to me, but I just learned that Baby Steinbrecher #107234564 is Henry's child. I'm not sure about #107234421 yet. I'm still researching to find out. I also learned that Conrad Steinbrecher #98248615 is related to me. I believe he is my Great Grand Uncle. He had traveled from Germany with my Great Grand Father and was also a witness at their wedding. I'm trying to research the other Steinbrechers at the Greenwood Cemetery to see if they are related.

Sincerely, Jonmarie

Thanks for trying to get a picture of Helen's stone. Now at least we know that there isn't one for her, unfortunately. Thanks for your time. :)

Stoneking obits
I was very happy to get the two obits, which I have added and from names contained in obits was able to link spouse and parents. Thanks for taking the time to send them, I welcome any additional ones you find. The person who had Samuel just transferred him to me, saying he only photographed the cemetery, knew nothing about the "inhabitants", and it was easier than adding all the information I had sent him. Good deal.
