Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is my able assistant "Bart". He and I enjoy taking the photos, so don't hesitate to transfer them for your own use. I don't need credit for the photo. I am also happy to transfer maintenance on any of the memorials I have done.
I live in Michigan so I have a few months where I can't get out and get photos. I will get to the many requests as soon as the weather gets nice again.

It was nice meeting you out at Forest Hill Cemetery. Thank you for the work you do on Find-a-Grave. I have certainly found a lot of relatives from your work.

I began to chuckle as I noticed two different Find A Grave members posting to the same family name and wondered at the chance meeting...opening the public message page confirmed that you had indeed met. Now I have two partners racing through the stones.

Crittenden and Tinsler
Thanks Helen, one photo but two searches.....good job Sherlock...being the age of Crittenden, it could have been a small plot on a family farm.

RE: Orren R Tinsler
Helen -

Thanks so much for verifying that the graves are next to each other.

I have what I believe to be Orren's death certificate but it will take some explaining. I'll attach it along with an explanation and send it to your email since it appears that I cannot attach anything here.

Thanks, Bob

Orren R Tinsler
Helen -

Thanks so much for getting me the picture of my great grandfather's grave marker. The marker indicates he died in 1910; however, the family bible lists his death date as 4 Apr 1911. I have already found him in the 1910 census as well as a divorce record from his second wife dated 10 May 1910. Another mystery to solve?

His first wife Emily (or Emma) Tinsler is buried beside him or so I'm told and I was always under the impression that their names were on a single marker. But your picture proves otherwise. The cemetery plot number I have for her is 1+1D+033+003+02+0 and comparing this plot number to Orren's, it appears as though their plots are, in fact, not together.

If it would not be too much trouble, could you get me a picture of Emily's grave marker. And, if you are ever in need of a picture from Louisa County, Virginia, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks again, ever so much, Bob Meier.

Thank You for the headstone picture. I don't have a car so it makes it hard for me to get to the cemeteries in my area.
