Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.

I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.

So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

Eliza traver 62836121

could her year of death be 1867 (not 1857)?
Father not married during civil war. It would also fit with other siblings better.

Beebe and Seamans photos
Thank you for the grave photos of my Beebe cousins and Seamans cousins. Looks like you had a good day to walk the cemetery. I appreciate you! I'm researching deceased cousins at Cortland Cemetery now and writing biographies for the memorials I manage. I've sent you some new information via edit tab on my cousins' memorials that you manage. I may be asking for more photos in the next few days...I like to ask only for those that have plot information. Thanks again. Your dedication to photographing graves is to be admired.
