I started using Find A Grave primarily to add my own relatives as I found out where they were buried. (Specifically the Mathias and Elisbeth (Hasling) Gilsdorf line and the Benjamin Franklin and Ruth Eline (Pond)Sprenkle line.). Then I decided to take a couple of volunteer photos, well that first time was a bust. (I claimed 13 "photo assignments" that were in a cemetery I was heading out to that day. Of those 13, I was able to get ONE, all the rest were either unmarked graves, graves the cemetery couldn't confirm were there, or they were broken). BUT as I was looking for those 13 I snapped some random shots -just in case they weren't on here- and added them when I got home. My reasoning is this, I knew the name of my Great Great Grandfather's brother (Casper Gilsdorf) and by chance ran across his memorial on here (ShirleyM was sweet enough to transfer it to me-Thank You again ShirleyM!), hopefully by me taking pictures of headstones (Some "assignments", some totally at random), someone else can run across a Find A Grave page for their ancestor. That having been said, if I have posted a memorial for your ancestor and any information is incorrect, PLEASE contact me and I will fix it. Also if for example I have added your Great Uncle Fred, and you know his wife Sheila is buried right next to him, but I missed her, let me know, and next time I am around that cemetery, I will be sure to make a stop and take a picture of her headstone to add here. If you would like your ancestor transfered to you, just ask and I will be happy to do it. *****With one exception: I won't transfer my family members that I have added, I would like to keep those. If you do find out that we share an ancestor, let me know, I would be delighted to learn of another relative.
photo of grave Rick the grave that is diplayed in the forground is Robert Johnston and the grave in the background is suppose to be the Hassetts, the former owners of the castle.My family members are buried in a crypt on the property. The chapel is just about gone but the wall to the crypt is still in tack.The church in the yard where the graves you show my grandparents finished building for the people that worked on his estate.His services was conducted by Rev. Phillip Skelton twice a month at the castle, also a good friend of the family. Sincerely Jerry M Caldwell

Relative of Huguette Clark Hello Rickie. I have just added the memorial for Timothy Clark, memorial #102825650. I would like to link him to Huguette any way I can if possible. Would you happen to have any suggestions?
Here's the story on him: http://openchannel.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/12/30/16238005-potential-heir-to-300-million-clark-copper-fortune-found-dead-homeless?lite
