Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hometown of Hammond, Indiana, near Chicago. I now live in Boise, Idaho. Since July, 2015 I've worked for Cloverdale Funeral home in Boise, ID. Prior, I've been a paramedic since 1978, as an EMS provider, manager, educator, and in communications. I've been photographing cemeteries and grave sites for over 15 years. I have developed a presentation on the art and symbolism of gravestones and cemeteries which I give through the city's Community Education system and at genealogy/ family history conferences, and to various historical groups. I also give historical tours of cemeteries in Boise.

PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" TOOL THROUGH FINDAGRAVE FOR ANY CORRECTIONS OR ADDITIONS. Requests to add obituaries to entries will have them edited to meet F.A.G. guidelines, mentioning no living relatives. If possible, please provide evidence of your edits. I've been burned a few times with inaccurate information.

I'm always available to photograph graves in the Boise/Ada County, Idaho and surrounding areas. My ISP doesn't send me photo requests for some reason, but feel free to e-mail me directly if you have any requests. Before you send me corrections to entries, please make sure it's my entry and not just my photo on the entry.

Thanks! I can make it any size you like. How many lines would you be willing to add? Or what information would you like? Thanks for making the links to his parents.

Martha McDonald
Do you know any more about Martha. I am looking for a Martha, b 14 Feb 1883 on Washington Island, Door, WI. According to the death date, if this is she, she would have been 6 months old.

Hi David,
Would it be possible to transfer management of these memorials to me? They are my fourth great grandparents. I have possession of an extensive Hayhurst genealogy and I would like to connect as many Hayhursts on find a grave as I can. Being the manager of these profiles would make it easier. Thank you for the consideration.

RE: question
Oh, thanks. I figured I had done something wrong. Did not want to have your photo where you did not want it to be. I do have some row pictures and other relatives to add there.

Hi David,
On Memorial # 152476756 there is a generic picture of Evergreen Cemetery with the caption - do not show cemetery photos on this memorial. Is this in regard to the generic photo? I did the stone image for my grandparents and uploaded them to the site. I did not attach the other picture. New person here - trying to understand the everything. I am taking pictures and gathering my family's memorials together.
Thank you,

Hi David,

Received your notes. First of all I did not create the memorial. There is a name listed under mine. I had a bunch of garbage memorials transferred to me. A lot of them were for living people which I have had deleted. I have not deleted everything yet. It is an on going project. I can't control what other people do but these will be cleaned up as I work through them. Since I did not create them they have to be sent to Find a Grave to delete which takes additional time.

Have a nice day,

Clarence O. Hipp Sr. memorial
Mr. Habben,

Would you consider letting me manage my grandfather's memorial, number 12690764. His name was Clarence O. Hipp, Sr. and is buried at Hessville Cemetery.
