Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've walked many graveyards, seeing stones in bad shape, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. This site is a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica by photograph for the future.

If related and can enhance memorial by adding additional information, please request transfer, stating your relationship. No transfers for collection of a particular family name. If you request transfer, be sure you are committed to a lifetime of maintaining the memorial. Sadly, a few of my older transfers are maintained by contributors who no longer respond.

When sending information to add, include verifiable source. Edits will be verified before being accepted. With quick edits, this is still important so unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source. Online trees, such as ancestry's, and family reports/books are not valid sources unless sources are noted.

I no longer add dates of birth calculated from age at death unless a photo of the stone is legible. (I got caught on a couple bad transcriptions which threw off the calculated birthdate).

Links will not be made to memorial in unknown cemeteries.

If you have taken better gravestone photos that what I've posted, please post yours and send a message.

I may try to contact contributors if I question an edit. For those who hide themselves completely by not showing email or allowing comments, my only choice is to decline and hope they resubmit with additional information.

Let me know if you have any questions on my listings - I love a good genealogy search and will try to help if possible!

Happy graving to all!

RE: Frank Houck edit
Good afternoon! I believe I'm going to "back off" on this one. The place of birth "Boiling Springs" came from the U.S., World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 which was prepared under Frank's direction - and misspelled it as Borling Springs! But further research reveals a Florida passenger manifest from 1927 which shows a birthplace of Carlisle, PA. Since both towns are in Cumberland County, I think we are safe in just leaving it at that. And as for "Colorado Springs" as the place of death, I was just going by the "bio" on that same image from above saying he lived there until his death. I realize that's not "proof" so it's OK by me to just leave that blank on his page. Thanks for getting back to me about this. Tom

Please remove the death certs you added to these memorials. I know the rules are not specific, however photo will remove them when asked. I have requested on my profile that they not be added to memorials we manage. Thank you much.

When you put in edit for last name did you also add Jacob for his middle name?

Thanks

RE: George & Catharine Smeich
Not sure what type of documentation you are looking for as these are my husbands 3rd great grand parents. I would request that they be transferred to my maintenance. If you would do any investigation you will see their daughter Sarah E. Smiegh is married to Joseph N. Coup. We have visited their graves and they are my husbands 2nd great grandparents. John Calvin Coup is his great grandfather and Josephine Coup is his grandmother. The documentation that I have is handwritten trees that have been passed down.

You can change/transfer or leave as it but your memorial is wrong. I have also requested a photo be taken.

I have been doing Find A Grave for a long time and you are the first person that has not made requested changes without an issue

I would think that the Death cert. would be for this child but there is know way to know which is incorrect the stone or the certificate. I have seen it both ways for people.
