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).

Thanks Kathy!
When I reach the Pearly Gates, I am going to mention to St. Peter that Kathy would be a fantastic replacement if he needs to go on vacation.

Thanks for locating my Great Grandparents grave markers! Right here in GR!

Thank you!
I looked up my grandmother's grave today and was delighted that someone had taken the time to upload a photo of her headstone! Thank you! I'm adding it to and will credit you.

From a grateful stranger,

Trish Sturgis Pulley of Lowell, MI

Thank you Kathy for looking for the Lampson family. I'm bummed no markers were found, but I will contact the cemetery and the contributor who added the memorials to see if there is any further information.

thanks again, Erin

Thanks for the photo! Still no proof for the elusive husband but a nice picture.

RE: Merle Guist photo
It just keeps getting more confusing :)
I'll check back with the cemetery office and try to get the Guists straightened out.
Yes, I truly enjoy findagrave!

RE: Merle Guist photo
Click on the photo to read the caption. Merle's ashes are under Rose's marker. I also submitted an edit so that information will be with the plot number.
