|Bio and Links|
As my Findagrave Profile name suggests, I am one of the many people to be diagnosed with Autism (Aspergers, to be specific). As one diagnosed with this syndrome, one of my characteristics is that I focus my attention around specific subjects. Most people with Autism or Aspergers may focus thier attention on dogs or subway routes. During my early high school years, I was fixated with graves after I stumbled across Findagrave. I would usually travel to cemeteries within my neck of the woods (Pennsylvania's Main Line), or whenever I was on vacation. Eventually, I felt that my fixation with cemeteries became morbid, so I slowly shifted my attention onto another subject: the US Presidents. To this day, I can still recite (1) the names of the Presidents of the United States in chronological order from George Washington to Barrack Obama, (2) the years they served in office, and (3) thier Vice Presidents. I also have an odd interest in visting State Capitol Buildings. Every once in a while, however, I would enjoy roaming around a cemetery (mainly if a President was buried in the cemetery). In October 2008, I decided to create my own Findagrave account, so here I am =)|
DISCLAIMER: As of January 1, 2013, I'm taking a year off (& possibly a little longer) to spend some time away from FAG so I can focus more on my own personal life. I'll be back sometime in (or after) 2014, but right now I just need to focus on my own personal life -- meaning, until then, I do not wish to get any personal e-mails asking to fulfill FAG requests.

Everything's cool. In my mind, whether or not to ask West Laurel Hill about the engraving on the JAMES grave marker is an issue to deal with after I have completed other issues first. I was searching for Josephine (Cree) JAMES to hopefully find more clues about her sister Elizabeth and their parents William & Jane CREE. I have not found where William & Jane are buried yet; I have found where Elizabeth is buried. Likely, William & Jane were buried in one of those smaller, inner-city cemeteries that had to be relocated. West Laurel Hill Cemetery's online database does account for a William and Jane CREERY buried there, but if I remember correctly, I did research CREERY and found that a CREERY family did also live in Philadelphia at the same time as the CREE family. Thank you again. And I like your Virtual Cemetery about the Assassins. Interesting stuff. Cannot believe John Wilkes BOOTH's final resting place is so respectable. And the one guy buried in that prison cemetery where his grave marker is a license plate shocked me. I never would have imagined that a license plate could be used as a grave marker.

Thank you for braving the snow to photograph the JAMES grave marker. It's, like, 50% beautiful, 50% "Is it really just one marker that only says JAMES?? -- just seems too simple after learning how complicated the many CREE sisters lives were (multiple marriages, being young widows, and many children dying so young)." Thank you again.
