Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings!

A Find-a-Graver since the site's origins as the hit for notable graves--not genealogy--I do "Famous" bios, and photograph/write about old gravestones, cemeteries, and the people interred within for the general reader. Will cheerfully answer queries, make corrections, add data to the "Family Links" section, and include other relevant info ASAP. Please no requests to insert multiple hyperlinks in the narrative part of the bio or to transfer pre-1900 burials. Find-a-Grave members can always include any grave listed on the website in an ancestral or other type of grouping by using the "Virtual Cemetery" feature. If you wish to quote me or use my photos, please contact me; attribution for written pieces is "by Nikita Barlow, for Findagrave", and for photographs, "Photo by Nikita Barlow". Thanks for your cooperation, and happy graving!

RE: Martha & Aaron Blalock
You are very welcome! I understand about wanting information to be verified. I drive people nuts by demanding proof. I was looking at a family member of mine when I ran across Keith and Malinda's story. I was trying to determine which bunch of Coffeys Keith was related to and when I found out it was a direct family member of mine that shot out his eye. (supposedly) Anyway digging about I found his Mother and thought to ask for the edit. Thank you for your time!

RE: Crannells & carver William Grant
Thanks so very much!! I'll have to look up those texts. I also received a message from the Association for Gravestone Studies based out of Massachusetts who said they may be able to help with some more detailed information. If they provide anything extra I'll be sure to forward it to you.

Question about William Grant
Hi Nikita! I've been doing some research about Robert and Catherine Cranell's grave at Trinity Church (a longtime fascination as a lifelong New Yorker). You mention that it appears to be the work of William Grant, and I was wondering if you have any more information on him?

You can email me at

Thanks so much.
