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.

To whom it may concern,
I have recently added one of my school Phoos to the Memoral of Spencer Roberts Lowell memorial #136363197.
Please, arrange this Photo as last on the memorial page. Thank you.

RE: Cortland Rural - Gillen
I hate to pester you again, but do you have access to any other Gillen obituaries? Crosby, Henry B., Josephine, Orville, Milo? Or the other stone (C-218)? Thanks.

RE: Cortland Rural - Gillen
Thank you so much for that obit! I wondered if she might be Gene's first wife. I saw him listed as a widower in one census. I found her son in Binghamton just now and sent an edit to link. Found some of her brothers and will continue to look for the parents. Thanks again. Lillian's husband and other Gillens are buried in Cortland. I just visited both cemeteries a few days ago.

Cortland Rural - Gillen
Your photo for Lillian I. Gillen (? - 1919) shows the side of the Gillen monument with Milo E. Gillen. I didn't see any names engraved on that side, other than Milo's. Any idea who Lillian was? Where did you hear of her? Trying to sort out all my Gillen kin. Thanks!

Thank you!
Thanks very much for the obit for Laura Brong-- and the caution about the illegibility of the original text.

Thank you!!
I just wanted to thank you so much for your help with providing the headstone photographs for my great aunt and great uncle.

I wasn't expecting such a quick turnaround when I made the request, but am so grateful for volunteers like you that are able to help given my distance from Cortland.

With kindest regards,
Carrie Stark
