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.

Jacob Butts Find A Grave Memorial# 38276522
just a small correction -- according to his death notice in the Ithaca Daily News 17 Dec 1903, p 5 last column, Jacob died 13 Dec 1903, not 1913

Robert Edward Space
According to the Obit you furnished (to my delight) he is buried in Willow Glen. Do you know what lot number? I think he is related to the other Space's in Lot 12-24 but can't be certain without knowing if he is in the same lot.
What you have contributed to Find A Grave is outstanding - i am very impressed. Thank you for your labor.

Hi Karen,

I see you found the marker for Fred J. Haskell!! I looked for that several times and couldn't find it! I never could get to the office when they were open to see if they had the correct lot number. I don't think the published lot number is correct; the map doesn't go that high numerically in that section.
Any chance you have the correct lot number?

Charles and Edson Finch
Hi kswh,

Thanks for the photos and information on Edson and Charles. Am I correct in assuming that you created their memorials from a cemetery index?

Kind regards,
