Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a photographer and I like taking pictures of interesting headstones, and headstones with interesting names or inscriptions.

I'm generally a polite, genial sort. If you ask me to transfer management of one of your relatives' memorials, I probably will -- just state your relationship, and be polite and patient. If it's one of my relatives, I probably won't, unless you're more closely related.

I believe that Find a Grave is a great collective resource for genealogists and gravers alike. As a general rule, I don't get hung up on who owns what, and I'll never be overly proprietary about memorials; if you want to add something pertinent to one of mine, please feel free. (One caveat: my photographs are all copyrighted to me. If I see them being used elsewhere, I will not be polite or genial about it. In advance, thanks for respecting that.)

RE: Photography sessions
No worries. There were 5 of us and we got one whole section done and partial of another. Great weather too. Next time

Photo shoot
On September 26 we are getting together for a photo shoot to get as much of a cemetery photographed. We start at 9 am and usually don't go more than a couple hours.
This time it will be at Mount Lebanon on St.Charles Rock Road, near Lindbergh.
Please join us if you can

Jacob Meyer memorial
Thank you so much for photographing the monument for Jacob Meyer (Myer)! He was my great great grandfather. It is so nice to have this connection to him.
Thanks and warm regards, Alice Gansfield, Boulder, Colorado

RE: Calvary?
Only Sharon and I did show and walked 5R and 5S. We have rescheduled it for the 18th of May now. Same time, same place. Section 5 is wayyyyyyy in the back

April 27th at Calvary
Our annual spring gathering of gravers this year is at Calvary. Working on the hard part of the requests. Section 5 and 16. It requires a lot of walking and good eyes. We start at 9 am and will be way in the back of the cemetery. The more legs and eyes, the more we get done. It usually does not last more than a couple hours.
Would love your help if you can.

RE: Hopkins' family, Sunset Memorial, Affton, Mo
I'm guessing they are Joseph Hopkins parents. They are not Anna's parents. I really don't have information on Joseph Hopkins' relatives.

Anna Coffelt Hopkins
Thank you very much for taking a photo of Anna Hopkins gravestone! I really appreciate it. Since her husband is also listed on the gravestone, I have created a memorial for him as well. I was wondering if you could upload your photos again to his memorial this time.

His memorial is: Joseph Hopkins - #106466084.

Thank you.

RE: Lawson Monroe Bess
I am thinking that his stone should be in the front section North end. I am trying to remember which end of the cemetery I pulled in from. Sorry it took so long to reply. I got buried in e-mails, I am just got to the ones from 4-2-12 so I am only running 2 months behind now. Happy Hunting!!
