Bio and Links
Bio Photo Walking a cemetery is like walking into a museum; each marker is a work of art that I love to capture. In addition to photographing markers for others, I search out those of young children who would otherwise be invisible because they don't have direct descendents to search for them.

I would be happy to transfer anyone, other than family, to you. Just contact me. And you are very welcome to use my photos in your family tree without asking, but my curiosity would like to know which ones are being used.

A special thank you to Tom C for helping with information on Oakwood Cemetery residents. We have entered every name from the cemetery records up through December 2013 into findagrave to hopefully help you in your search. Thanks Tom!

RE: Lyman Smith
Thanks for the link. We can do this any way you wish. I will delete that photo and you can either add the new one or send it to me and I will add it. Either way works for me. You did me a great favor by doing this. I take many photos and often get saddened by the way some of the graves look due to neglect. I was hoping someday someone would see something bad enough to help get it taken care of. I do some myself but many times they are so bad it cant be done easily. This case wasn't so bad but I am glad the picture will show new flowers!!!

Thank you so much for linking her to her parents. She is of a very old pioneer family who settled my childhood home of Clintonville, near Marcellus. My home was built on land formerly owned by her family.

Many thanks for the photo you took of the grave site, and the speed of your response. A pity there was no marker, but I really appreciate seeing where he was interred.

RE: Oakwood
Diane: Now that you mention it, I do not get any requests for Oakwood. The only city requests I receive are for Onondaga Valley and Walnut Grove on the hill. Most of the other ones come from Madison or Cortland county. Which makes no sense, as I live in the 13078 zip code. Go figure! Incidentally, if you run across any 19th cen gravestones signed by the manufacturer (usually on the base, lower right) let me know. I'm particularly interested in Robert Spaulding, Isaac and Sydney Stanton, and Joseph Watson. Thanks.

Thank you so much for adding this information. I knew that my gr. grandparents, J.D. and Susie had a child who died in infancy, but could never find a name or date. This fills in a gap in my family tree.
Thank you again,
Gail Palmer

Thank you
Thank you for the picture of the eons blossom marker. He is my fifth-greatgrandfather. I was hoping to get some more info from the marker but it seems very weathered. Thanks for the great picture though, it means a lot.
