Bio and Links
I'm a middle school English teacher that spends "spare" time conducting genealogical research. I have spent lots of time in the Forest Hill and Laurel Hill cemeteries, but recently focused most of my efforts at St. Bernard's and St. Joseph's.

Please feel free to use photos that I take for whatever purpose you choose. However, any and all photos must include proper source information in the citation. This allows other researchers to maintain the integrity of the research process.

I often have additional and/or higher quality images, and sometimes additional information, for many of the memorials. Please contact me if interested.

Please note that although I strive to take the best possible quality photos, I occasionally upload pictures that I plan to replace in the future.

I generally create memorials with the same spelling used on the marker, when one exists. Additional information, such as names of parents, also utilize information/spelling as seen on the primary sources.

Several gravestones at Laurel Hill no longer stand where they were first erected. Several factors, including erosion and vandalism, have led to these stones being placed in seemingly random locations. I try to document both where these stones are now, and where they should be.

Orilla Jaquith and Ai Foster
Hi Bill, just thought I'd share some information. I noticed on Orilla Jaquith's page (mem# 121767642) that you had written: "First married to _____ Foster." The name is Ai Foster and his memorial # is 135746656 if you'd like to link them. Ai Foster is my 3rd Great Grandfather. Hope you find this info useful. Thanks for all your hard work! Lindsay

Amy Lindquist Wallin
Thank you for the photo of Amy Wallin's grave. I was curious if you found any other Lindquist's buried near her. I'm looking for a variety of her family members but I don't know if they are buried in Forest Hill Cemetery or not.

RE: Pvt. Lester Morton (119680101)
I think you are correct that there is a duplicate but neither memorial is under my control.

Mary Lou (Chambers) (McComb) Jefts
Thank you so much for the information about Mary Lou being buried with her 2nd husband. I was never aware that she remarried after Chester McComb died! Your really helped with adding information to my family tree. Thanks to you I have made a photo request for her grave. How did you find her obituary?
Your time and effort is very much appreciated by our family.
