Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has become my newest addiction!

Taphophilia = an abnormal love for graves and cemeteries. The love of walking cemeteries and finding lost relatives and the gravesites of ancestors.


If you've never taken a few moments to spend time in the cemetery...You're really missing out. The peace and tranquility you find in them. Those that have gone before many times have left a final message on their tombstones. These messages are an inspiration and make me feel humbled and blessed! Go ahead...take the time...walk your local cemetery and read their messages and see how they reach out and touch you! You'll be glad you did! (quoted from another find-a-graver)


We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe.


"When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

on the memorial for Benjamin Edward Steward # 114197032 you have his parents listed as John Steward, Nancey Thompson. Can you tell me where you got this information from and do you have anymore on this family. I have his sister Jane's death certificate and it looks like it says Mary not Nancey. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,

RE: Beebe
Thank you for the obit - that was very thoughtful of you. FYI - I am descended from America through her daughter Ova Woodruff Remmele. Did Jeremiah and America live with Fred Beebe (your ancestor?)? My aunt Myrtle Remmele Sprague - America's granddaughter spoke often of Fred Beebe and made it sound as if they all lived together - or would it have been just nearby?

Thanks again!!

RE: Walter Lackey Memorial# 134386571
Usually in a case like this were the baby or child is in one cemetery but is remembered on their parents monument it is okay to post them at both.. Walter Jr. is buried in Ohio.. He is not buried with his parents and siblings...Another sibling was moved to California but the one guy I spoke to said leave it for now...Let me know and I'll go in and remove the picture.. They did this a lot back then especially around the Civil War

My great3grandmother was America Burchett Gilmore Woodruff Beebe - second wife to your ancestor Jeremiah Beebe. While she lived until 1922, my family has only one photo of her. I was wondering if you know of any other photos of her? James

Thanks for the heads up. I have contacted the person who first created to see if they want to copy the obituary. I have asked them to notify me so I can delete once done.

Kennedy Cemetery
Hi Anna, Sorry to say I have no idea where the Kennedy Cemetery is located in Monongalia County, WV. seems to be one near Wadestown and one listed near Burton, Burton is just outside of Wadestown, It looks as though there are several death records of burials listed as in the Kennedy Cemetery. I'll ask locals and see if anyone knows. Sylvia

Some hand was guiding you to enter this just 5 days ago and me to find it today. I have been spending a lot of hours trying to find Caleb Carver's parents. At least now you have located the burial site of his wife. Mary Flagg born 1783 and married 1803. Could your posted age at death of 53 be in error? They are my 4th great grandparents.
