Bio and Links
Bio Photo HI, I have been researching my Genealogy since July of 2000. I really enjoy visting Cemeteries and takeing pictures. Headstones are so awesome, they come in all different shape, sizes, Colors, and the engravings express how someone was feeling at the time this person died. I believe you can some what see what kind of a person was by their headstone. And sometime a headstone is all that is left on this earth. I lived in Wyoming, Michigan

Ellis' in Franklin Co., NY
Hi, I've been trying to fulfill some of your photo requests here in the northern part of Franklin Co, NY, specifically the Malone area. When doing Henry Ellis' grave in the Morningside Cemetery, I also took photos of the Ellis graves right next to Henry's. I don't know if they are any of your Ellis ancestors but I thought they may be as they were side by side in the cemetery. You can view them by visiting the Morningside site on Find A Grave, and just type in Ellis.

I also did the ones at Maplewood Cemetery in Malone and I looked up Selim on our historical newspapers and found a short obituary as well as another article chronicling his demise. Another one told of Henry losing a leg in the Civil War and of another brother (James, maybe?) being killed in the Civil War. Didn't know if you had those articles?

I probably won't do any more photos until warmer Spring camera doesn't like the cold. If we get a nice sunny day before alot of snow arrives, I might be able to do some.

Take care, LLaPage

Junod White Pigeon Cemetery
I have a picture of a Baby headstone on the Junod family plot with no dates. The White Pigeon Township Cemetery Record lists no dates either nor a name just as a baby. I there is also an Orpha (Sixbey) Junod buried in the same addition. I figured you could use the whole family headstone picture of the headstone from Elva if you wanted to include it on everyone's individual page. I just took pictures close up trying to get the information. If you are unable to read the information in the picture, I suggest you go to the White Pigeon Township Cemetery Website:

Pics fpr Gibson Twp
I do pictures for FindAGrave and you have requested one or more pictures in a Bay County cemetery. Unfortunately the cemetery where the tombstone is located is not indexed in a public forum. If you could contact the cemetery and get your loved one's location—section and row or plot—I will attempt to fulfill your request. You can locate an address, email or phone number by googling the cemetery's name or by checking the Bay GenWeb site at
As you can appreciate I'm not able to walk the whole cemetery for you.
