Tombstone tourist, taphophile, cemetery enthusiast, graver. I got into this hobby by way of paranormal investigating, then by photographing cemetery and funerary architecture and monuments. I enjoy learning of and photographing historic cemeteries and artistic memorials.
Being former Navy myself I consider it an honor in discovering grave sites of Congressional Medal of Honor recipients and military veterans. And enjoy searching for the occasional celebrities, too.
My favorite cemeteries (so far) are; Inglewood Park Cemetery, Inglewood, Ca., Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Hollywood, Ca., Los Angeles National Cemetery in Westwood, Ca. and Mountain View Cemetery in Alta Dena, Ca.
If there is a memorial of a family member or friend that ive added that you would like transferred please let me know. Also, if you have information you'd like to add to one of my memorials, again, please let me know.
I want to say THANK YOU to my graver friends Kimberly, Jayne, Lisa, Mark, Steve & Louis for all your advice and help. And a BIG THANK YOU to my graver partner, Darla, for all the miles, bad jokes and greasy food. Too much fun!
RE: Re: Frank Rutledge Terry, Thank you for the transfer of Frank Rutledge. I searched for him for many years before I found your memorial for him on find a grave. His wife died in Dallas, Texas, in 1921 and I assumed that he passed away there also. I'll check out Frank's son tomorrow and let you know what I find. Again, thank you.
RE: Memorial 3741854 I am sorry I did not mean it that way. It does not show his grave. That is what this site is about. Findagrave. In my opinion only. I also respect and appreciate all you do. I just was sharing a thought. I have taken and posted photos over the years that people brought to my attention and have either removed them or kept them. Please, please do not think for a moment that I was in any way demeaning you or your work. I just think that is not a photo that belongs here. I have no intentions of even looking to see what you do. Your work is awesome and I respect you. James
