(John C. Carter)|
(Will be spending part of the summer in southwestern Maine).
Happy to photograph at any cemetery in the Tampa Bay, FL area! (or in the Lakes Region of SW Maine).
Born in Dover, DE, (to parents from NJ & WV), I lived in southern CA until age 12, & then in Raton, (a small town in N.E. New Mexico), which I consider my home town. I attended NM State Univ for 4 years (with a 1-yr exchange to Oregon State Univ), but did not complete a degree at that time, & later moved back to southern CA, settling in the Orange County area. After 10 yrs in the O.C., I moved to St. Petersburg, FL (Tampa Bay area) in 1990, & have been here ever since.
I have avidly worked on my family's genealogy since the age of 15 ... nearly 42 years ago!
I am a 27-yr member (and former chapter registrar) of the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) with 7 qualifying ancestors submitted (more to come!), a member of the SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War) with 10 qualifying ancestors or brothers of ancestors (more to come!), a member of the SVR (Sons of Veterans Reserve--affiliated with the SUVCW), a member of the S&DUSCT (Sons & Daughters of U.S. Colored Troops), a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indians of New Jersey, and an associate member of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.
(Click on my profile pic above to read the story of the Civil War ancestor with whose headstone I'm posing).
I'm very proud that every single branch of my ancestry has been in America since at least pre-Revolutionary times.
Having taken numerous college courses over the years, I finally bit the bullet & enrolled in a program in 2003 to complete my degree, & graduated from Eckerd College (a local, private, liberal arts college) in May 2005 with a B.A. in Creative Writing.
Besides genealogy & writing, my other interests include: clock collecting, books, movies, photography, geocaching, the Civil War, the space program, many types of music, & visiting cemeteries!
Thanks to the creators of this site for doing such a great job!

You're right. After I sent you the edit suggestion, I found more information that was confusing. If and when I find clarification that verifies, I'll contact you again.
Thank you very much for the photo of Reginald Mains at the Murch Cemetery.
|Tom Kruse||Thank you so much|
Thanks for the photo of another one of my cousins. Much appreciated. Keep up the great work.

We are related by marriage it appears. Florence Bowers (my 1st cousin 4x removed) was married to John Weslt "Fess" Carter. I saw you put up photographys on some of the memorials. Is it ok for me to download these and save to my family tree on Ancestry?
I have no photographs of any of my Bowers family members and would appreciate this greatly

Dear John, Thank-you very, very much for fulfilling my photo requests. I appreciate it immensely. I know the effort it takes to be a photo volunteer. Thank-you for everything you do for Find A Grave. You are why Find A Grave is so great! I read your Civil War story - loved it. You are awesome! Warmest regards, Joni
Thank you for taking the pics of Eppes, Mary, and Arthur Burnham's graves. Much appreciated. - Pam
