Bio and Links
All photos of graves that I have posted were taken by me and may be copied freely and posted on other websites. There is no need to credit me or identify me when they are so used and no need to request permission beforehand. I won't be annoyed if you do anyway, but it really isn't necessary for the grave photos taken by me. Most photos of persons that I have posted were not taken by me. Please check the photo caption to determine the source (most often an obituary).

The photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera, which takes 4896x3672 (18M-pixel) images. The original JPG files are 6-7 MB in size. I then use GIMP, an open source image processing program that can be downloaded for free from, to rotate, crop and rescale the images. Usually I set the horizontal resolution to 1200 pixels, sometimes up to 1600 for panoramic scenes. I use a compression "quality" setting of 50 to 70, most often 60 to 65. The resulting picture files are usually 250 to 300 kB, with some up to 400 kB. Limiting the file size to that range allows snappy downloads when opening the image at full resolution.

Eric...Don was my boyfriend for several years before he died of leukemia. I would love to watch over his memorial and add to it, if you would consider transferring it to me.

I've been trying to get photo for this memorial and the data base has no photo at Cathedral. Also her spouse, Edward, is buried in a different cemetery with the same death date on his headstone and on his death certificate it says married, not widowed. I think the cemetery records are incorrect for Kate, who was born in Delaware Catherine C McMenamin according to her son's death record.

RE: Charlotte Drane 136843741
Weird! Her name doesn't appear there using that file path. I went to and typed burials in the search box. A page came up with a list. I chose About Catholic Cemeteries. On that page there is a menu on the right. I chose Burial Database Search. A box comes up asking for a name. I put in Drane and her name came up. Also James E and Nancy J.

Hi and thanks again for your help with my Dranes!

Regarding your message to me with link to familysearch:

"This permit indicates she was to be buried at Cathedral. She's not listed in the cemetery online database, but that's not uncommon, especially from that era."

On, the Archdiocese of Wilmington website, Charlotte IS listed in the same lot with James E Drane, her husband. Did you have other info that states she is NOT actually buried there? Just want to be sure I've got it straight!

Thanks! Barb

I would like permission to use your photo of the gravestone for this Tesh couple on my Ancestry Family Tree. I would of course credit you as the photographer. Thank you.

Good. I didn't intend to delete her spouse. FindAGrave edit gave me an error message that said there was a pending spousal edit. The only way I could submit her parents was to delete her spouse from my submittal.
