My photos aren't perfect and I didn't plan them to be, as I believe, in genealogy, it's more important to concentrate on what the stone has written on it, than about getting a pretty and perfectly centered photo. Most people aren't going to frame them for a wall, but will add them to a family tree program. I don't do my photos in this way to be disrespectful, just want people to be able to read what's on them, if at all possible.|
I'm a cancer survivor and have scoliosis in my back, so I can walk fast, but not stay bent over long enough without pain, to take a perfectly centered and pretty photo of gravestones.
Alot of researchers want a photo, imperfections and all, to prove that a family member is in a certain cemetery and my goal was to do that for them.
Above all, I think it's most important to get photos of tombstones, even if not perfect, as to preserve the stones for family to find online, in case they are damaged in some way later and not readable at all.

Hi: I am working on a summary of civil war soldiers from Fulton Co.,IL for free viewing at www.illinoisancestors.org/fulton and would like to use your grave photo for this project. I will give you photo credit. Please let me know if this is ok with you. Thank you. Janet Turnbull
Thanks so much!

Okay no problem-If I come across any more, I can copy from my computer, I will just make sure in the caption area I credit you and which memorial it came from; usually I come across spouses. Thanks for the note :)

Sure if you would like to transfer it.
|Dana Thompson||El Reno Cemetery--A. J. & Myrtle Thompson|
Thank you for your work at El Reno in Canadian County, OK. Septimus F. R. and Emaline Judah Thompson's son is buried here -- Andrew Jackson Thompson. A. J. was the wife of Myrtle Trimble Thompson.
Prior to Septimus' marriage to Emaline, he was married to Letitia Elizabeth Taylor Thompson, and they had nine children before she died in 1871 or 1872. My research has lead me to find almost all of their final resting places. [I am still looking for Septimus' first wife and their two oldest children -- Samuel (he moved around a lot) and Willis (he died at age 10 in Grayson County, TX).]
I have proposed edits that will link A. J. to his wife, father, mother, full siblings (sisters: Dallie, Francis, and Pearl), and his half siblings who I have been able to locate. I appreciate your assistance in getting this family linked together.
