Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person.

My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!

Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.

I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.

May I have your permission to download the photos of the gravestone of Hiram Fugate & his wives (Memorial# 41607218)?
I would like to upload them into my Ancestry family tree.
Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you so much for the photo of Rachel and infant son BROWN! This is my father-in-law' mother. Vermillion County is filled with "family" so please let me know if you are back cemetery again.

Thank you
Lesa, Thank you for accepting and entering my edits. I love being able to tie individuals to their parents, their children, and their siblings. Even though hundreds of miles may separate their graves, they are together again via their memorial pages.
Thanks for all that you do. ~Jackson
