Available for you here in Santa Cruz County, California! (I'm in Watsonville, CA area on Wednesdays.) Giving back to other FindAGrave folks for likewise being provided for by others around the USA... Your cross-country trip is my 2-minute drive! Ready to help, back up, or add to other contributors in our team effort searches! Also, all my pics are public domain to be used by anybody freely, permission given, as I am not egocentric or after $$ or personal credit. |
I try to go the extra mile when fulfilling a Find A Grave request: I look (and inquire the cemetery office) for nearby same-names that may be previously overlooked or unknown relatives... I clean and trim the grass and earth around outdoor markers... I know that these photos are of your relatives, friends and loved ones: They deserve a quality portrait for all to see!
In the captions of my uploaded pics I will include the cemetery office's plot coordinates, if the memorial doesn't have them.
IN MY OPINION:
The primary intention of gravestones is to mark the location and provide information of the interred. But they do not last forever. When a gravestone no longer fulfills it's purpose, it should be replaced, especially before the info on the gravestone is lost. That being done, placing the old gravestone inside an onsite cemetery museum out of the elements seems the ideal thing to do!
UPDATE! FIND A GRAVE RAISED THEIR MANDATED PIC SIZE TO 8.0MB MAXIMUM!
(PLEASE: I REQUEST THAT MY PIC REQUESTS BE AT LEAST 2.0MB. ALSO, THAT THEY BE FREE OF OBJECTS OR VEGETATION BLOCKING THE MARKER'S INFO OR TEXT! THANK YOU!)
I'm willing, upon request, to retake my earlier pics that were taken when the mandatory resolution/size was much smaller.
If they want, if a requestor provides me their email address, I will send the pics FULL size to you, for you to have a more detailed portrait.
I use my Ancestry.com account's search engine to find facts that requestors may want to add to their Find A Grave memorials.
I've been told that I've successfully helped several requestors make important discoveries for their genealogical research.
(By the way: I have found that the best way to handle an antagonistic, obnoxious, lying and paranoid person is NOT to respond to their taunts. They are uncaring, lonely and bored wretches, entertained by the trouble they cause. Remember, nobody is evil or crazy in their own mind: they just make up (and believe) excuses for their behavior. It's AMAZING how many evil and crazy creeps there are in Find A Grave. Truly benevolent folks like us must stay strong!)
Again, as always, I'm willing and glad to help, as others have helped me in my own family tree research.

Thank you so much for their tombstone photos :)

Thank you so much for again taking pictures for me. Thanks!!!! You added the picture of the front of the grave. Would you put that picture on Memorial# 125928005 for John Doyle and Find A Grave Memorial# 125928075 Mary Doyle? You said that Mary Ellen's was on the right side of the headstone, was there anything on the back or on the left side? The Doyles have been so hard to research because it seems that they all have the name of Mary or John. I had gotten the death records for these John and Mary Doyle from the Church, but was not sure until I saw the picture that they were her parents. You have solved a huge mystery. THANKS AGAIN!!

|Barbara HARMS Craig||Craig & etc at Pajaro|
THANKS for claiming this family at Pajaro.
Thought I would tell you I added another sibling
Violet Irene CRAIG Ogden and her husband:
I am out of "requests"
Also, Iven Stevens wife Annie CRAIG Stevens is in Pajaro - I am trying to get that contributor to add the cemetery.
This family seems to be in the Garden of Memory and the Garden of Roses.
THANKS SO MUCH, I have looked for this family for so many years. I made a call Friday to Pajaro and found most of them. Barbara

Thanks so much for searching.

I did send e-mail a few days ago. Hopefully, you've had a chance to review the links found therein. Good news is I found all the "missing link" Bissell's; the generation preceeding Dr. Elias and following the Captain. The plot is very large and contains about a dozen burials. Once I add them, they will connect the ones in Forest Lawn to the ones in Lancaster Rural Cemetery. I'll send along the memorial number via "edit" so you can connect the Doctor to his father when I'm done.
