Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in the mid-west all my life and have been an x-ray technologist for over 35 years. I found the Find A Grave website back in 2000 while helping my daughter research a school project. At the time, the more I explored Find A Grave the more disappointed I became that some of the famous individuals that were posted did not have a personal photograph in addition to their gravesite displayed. In the process of trying to locate photos for Find A Grave I have learned a lot about many of the individuals that it has been my pleasure to honor. History has always been a passion for me and Find A Grave has helped satisfy my curiosity tremendously.

Hello. After working on bio of this Professor there really is quite a bit more bio info particularly in her role in women's advocasy...I do not understand why it is not possible to reach the "manager" who's record . Do you have any idea how to contact whoever is currently responsible for this?
Also where is this photo sourced?
I appreciate any info you might have on this. THANKS SO MUCH.

I noticed that the photo of Richard Ryder that you uploaded is not correct. I uploaded the right pictures.

Good morning Ron,

May I suggest a correction for the cemetery Bovin was interned at? It is Troekurov cemetery. Not sure how to suggest the change through the Edit option.

Best regards,

photo in memoriam for Sawyer Sweeten
When the memoriam for Sawyer Sweeten first went up, the photo was with him with a silver colour jacket on. As I understand from other photos posted, that is Sawyer Sweeten

Today, the photo in his memoriam has been switched to who I understand to be his brother Sullivan (in a black jacket). I noticed other photos on the internet interchange them as well. Confusing...especially when they are identical twins.

Paul Pender d. 2003
Paul Pender is reported to be buried at St. Joseph Cemetery in West Roxbury. My parents and several aunts, uncles, and cousins are also buried there.

However the staff at this cemetery are not just hostile to volunteers but to anyone who asks for information. Recent encounters indicate they are passing out false information if they know you are volunteering for Find a Grave. There new policy is to charge $10 to give the location and another $10 for a map showing where the lots are because there are very few visible lot markers.

Anyone in the Boston area over 60 knows Paul Pender just by the name. The staff at St. Joseph's says they have no record of him. I checked with Mt. Benedict across the street and they were helpful in checking their records and some of the nearby cemeteries but without any luck. Unless you have a death notice or record, I will check out Paul's death record at the Mass. Vital Records office. That should at least tell who the funeral director was and if so, I will find out where he is buried. I know some cemeteries have private burials and even the staff does not the information. This is not the case with St. Joseph.

If you have concrete proof he was buried in St. Joseph, I would appreciate knowing the funeral director so I can request the location.
Thank you,

Thanks so much for posting some very cool pictures on some of the 'famous' memorials I have created. They really enhance the page.

Keep up the great work!

Re: Your photo of William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy
Hello Ron,

I was wondering where you found your photo for William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy. I am a discendant of his, and have never seen this particular print.

Thank You,

Dickey Chapelle
Hi Ron.
The photo you've posted of Dickey Chapelle was actually taken in 1959 in Milwaukee covering Marines on "Operation Inland Seas" celebrating the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
