Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.

Quotes worth remembering:

"Live your life so that your memories make you smile." rej

"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown

"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

Wrong headstone picture
picture of headstone placed with write-up of
Walter and Meble Ruth Costner Ware is for Walter's
brother Buford and sister-in-law Stella...It should
be put with their pages.....These gentlemen are
cousins and neighbors of mine....or at least Buford
still is. Elizabeth Camp Anthony

R Franklin Quantrill
There are two Caroline Quantrills in the same cemetery with him. Unfortunately the one that is his mother was connected to him as his wife. Wonder if you can help fix this. Thanks.

Wrights and Quinns
Good morning,
First of all thank you for your work creating these memorials.
I was working on my grandmother's (Gladys Virginia Wright Hood) family and ran across the memorial of her brother Cecil Manton Wright. I noticed that you did not have his wife listed so I checked the cemetery for her and you did have a memorial for her also. She was Eugenia Quinn Wright, but we called her Aunt Jackie. I also saw that there were many other Quinns buried at the same cemetery and wanted to know if you had any information on who her parents might be.
I visited that cemetery in Dallas back in the early 70s with her and my father to view Uncle Cecil's grave.
Thanks again for your work,

Brian Hood

DC Congressional Cemetery Lewis Gerard C.W. Soldier
May I use the grave marker photo that you contributed to the Find A Grave memorial for Lewis Gerard, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? (
Lewis was a Native son of Vermont, and his first enlistment and service was with the 12th Vt. Inf, and later with the 1st D.C. Inf, and the 51st N.Y.

You will receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.
