Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised and work in northern Virginia. I'm a 66 year old Federal Government employee with 42 years of service. Almost ten years after its inception, I found this site quite by accident when a co-worker asked me to help him at lunch time take a photograph of a headstone that was overgrown with bushes. After that, I was hooked fulfilling photo requests, primarily at nearby Arlington National Cemetery.

Then it occurred to me that this would be a great place (free (thus far)) to document my family tree for all to see, which would be based on the extensive genealogical research that my aunt has been doing for the past 15 to 20 years. This project of linking thousands of memorials is going to take a very long time (if it's at all possible) to complete due to several memorial creators, totally unrelated to my family, who will neither transfer ownership nor respond to SAC edits. That is not to say that all memorial creators are like that. Indeed, most are very gracious and totally responsive, and for that, I whole-heartedly thank them.

If I have a memorial for one of your relatives or even someone else whose memorial you're willing to maintain, I'll gladly transfer ownership upon request. Please make your transfer request via the edit tab on the memorial page, and then SAC. I don't understand the reasoning behind many members wanting to hold on to memorials of folks they have no relation to, genetic or otherwise, when there are people willing to maintain them. Findagrave's guidelines are just that, guidelines. The logic behind the beyond-the-two-generation and non-direct-line transfer request guideline from multiple members is specious at best; those requesters would be related and should be able to work out maintenance issues better than the unrelated memorial creator.

Regarding duplicate memorials, it's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I that have made, please submit an SAC on the Edit tab of the memorial page and let me know, and provide the number of the original memorial. Thank you.

You have my permission to use any of my photos, as long as you include attribution. (Please don't ask, just use them.)

RE: Two more McInturffs in Riverview Cemetery
We will try another day on Mary M McInturff's photo. Everything shows up fine until it downloads and that's when it flips on its side. Might just try taking it again because the other photos never have that problem, as you can see.

Hi David, I wanted to let you know that I was not successful in locating a marker for the above person. I will be removing the photo request for her so that other volunteers don't attempt to look for her.
If I can do anything else for you regarding her or another family member, let me know please. Sue

Thank you so much for checking on his site. I had no idea that he wasn't entombed until several months after his death.
Thanks for offering to do the follow up.

RE: Mary C. Lewis Triplett marker photo . . .

Thank you for the very nice photo of Mary's Arlington marker. Seeing in with the cemetery background looks great.

I will be requesting a photo of my friend Bobbie E. Mozelle's Arlington marker (Find A Grave Memorial# 115245305). Could you please claim it and take a shot similar to Mary's?

Bobbie was murdered in 1991 by Turkish terrorists, after serving honorably in USAF for 20 years. I still miss him.

Thanks, again!

Mary C. Lewis Triplett marker photo . . .

I found Mary's marker photos on the ANC Explorer website. Just wanted to let you know, since you claimed my photo request before I got a chance to delete it. Please let me know if you still want to take some pics. Then I will delete the ANC photos I downloaded tonight.

I am somewhat confused, though, as to how Mary C. Lewis Triplett (1751-1832), wife of a revolutionary war patriot, came to be buried in Arlington since the cemetery was founded during the Civil War (1861-1865). Are there private graves their other than the Custis family?
