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.

Ellen (Harding) Denning: 109778628
I believe Ellen is Ellen Marilla Harding who married William James Denning. Ellen was born 11 Oct 1883 (aka. Nellie Harden) she died in Delaware Hospital, Wilmington on 19 September 1945. I think her husband was William James Denning born 22 June 1874 died 29 April 1953 at State Hospital Farnhust, New Castle County, Delaware. A William James Denning with a date of death of 1 May 1953 is buried in an adjoining lot and may be her husband.

Thank you,

Jackie Harrington

Atonina Bara Rec
Eric, I saw your information that Antonina Bara had children before she married Wojciech Rec. I am taking for granted you got this information at Cathedral Cemetery? Can you share it?

Kathryn McGinley Harney
Error on Find A Grave # 110433123.
Kathryn Harney's spouse was Daniel J. Harney (1879-1942). His Find A Grave # is 110433118

I think when you added the Spouse number on Kathryn's grave, you must have transposed the numbers. It is showing her married to a woman named Harris in error.

Thank you for taking the time to correct this mistake.
