Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy locating "lost" cemeteries and doing complete surveys of them and other local cemeteries. I add as many photos as I possibly can as time permits or whenever I see a photo request. But first I add the person's name and dates so you know where your ancestor is buried. I tend to get involved in the people buried in the cemeteries and try to use my genealogy skills of over 30 years to link those buried to their loved ones. This is done to make it easier for researchers to locate family members.


I am happy to transfer your family and friends to you, as long as they aren't mine too. DO give me a REASON to transfer to you though! I AM A CARETAKER WHO IS ONLY WAITING FOR A FAMILY MEMBER TO CLAIM THEIR LOVED ONE. These graves belong to those who loved them, even if they never met in life.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to. Please do not move your Burial Unknown or a person from an incorrect cemetery into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my "duplicate". It is not fair that I spend my time, my gas, my $, hunt down owners of the properties, bee stings, ticks, poison ivy, and even risk to my life (bull in the pasture, scary men, and electrified fence-no snakes so far) to photo gravestones only later to find that an armchair F-A-Ger has placed a name in either an incorrect cemetery or has a burial unknown, finds I have actually found-the-grave, moves theirs to the correct cemetery and then expects me to delete my entry. I WILL TRANSFER my submissions after the incorrect entry is deleted. This way we both get credit and the person who makes the incorrect entry still has a memorial they maintain. I feel this is more than fair. This is in accordance with FAG rules! I refer you to Find A Grave rules: "In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location". Thanks for listening to my venting!

Happy hunting!

Hawley in Sunset Memorial Park
I am helping the granddaughter of John and Macie Hawley (his is #86664679). I see that you added an area picture of where he is buried, but his granddaughter is fairly certain that they have a stone. Have you looked and not found one? Or shall I request one on her behalf? Thanks much.

re: RE: Brammer Cemetery
Ok, I checked my pictures and the Brammer list and there are no Foleys. BUT, I have 26 UNKNOWNS, such as broken headstones, unreadable headstones and fieldstones.
I have a contact number for the caretaker of that cemetery if you'd like for me to contact him?

re: RE: Brammer Cemetery
That's correct. I photographed every headstone ad when I got home I checked the pictures against the memorials. If a memorial had to be created, then I created one. The only pics I had left were unreadable, broken or just field stones. I can check the list I have and see if there are any Foley's.

RE: Brammer Cemetery
Yes, I was just there in July and photographed the entire cemetery.

If you stay on Rt. 19 to Flat Top and over the turnpike bridge (named for my cousin and brother), turn right onto Egeria Rd. just past the bridge. Follow it about a mile and it will be on the right side. From Odd the only way I would know would be to follow the road that goes up along side the post office. At both forks in the road, stay to the left and it will come back to Rt. 19. In this case it will be on your left after you pass that big white church on the right (don't know the name). I don't know of any shortcuts from Odd.
Hope it helps!
