Bio and Links
I am doing my family genealogy, and I wanted a headstone picture of a past relative killed, by friendly fire, during the civil war.
My interest grew, and now I take pictures and create memorials myself.

I've now been a graver for more than five years, and I enjoy it as much now as I did when I started. I truly enjoy getting those photo's for other's who could not, because I now know first hand how it feels to finally have a much wanted photo of that loved one lost.

If you'd like a transfer of a memorial I've created, just ask. If it's my family, it may be difficult but not impossible.

I send a personal thankyou to all of my fellow gravers. Keep up the good work.

RE: John Fisher
John Fisher changed his name on Jan 27 1940 from Drzewiecki was filed in the County of Iosco in the State of Michigan in Probate Court. I also have his obituary from the Dec 10, 1997 Cass City Chronicle that says he was the son of Frank and Mary (Chesler) Drzewiecki.

HIs wife Myrtle Stella Cory died just 16 hours after him. I connect to the family through her, her maiden name is Brown.

Find A Grave Memorial# 112313056
Hi Al,
First I thank you for your volunteer time on this web site and helping us out here with our genealogy memorials!
Second I send my message to confirm it is ok to post your photos on my Ancestry.com family tree (and will give you credit for kindly creating the memorial and for the photo you have taken for Find A Grave Memorial# 112313056). This would be one of my 1 cousin's maternal grandparents on my family tree.
Thank You,
Darlene

RE: Cora Naylor
Will give it another shot, Al. There are three separate Park "H" sections, all behind the chapel. But the names of others buried around is a Real Plus. Hope they have markers as well. Thanx!

Hi Al,
I transferred both Jr. and Sr., as well as their wives. If that was too many, please feel free to transfer any of the back to me.

headstone photo
Hello Al!
I just created the memorial for John O'Henley's wife Catherine in St Columbkille Cemetery, Huron County. Just wanted to tell you that I used the headstone photo that you took for John's memorial. I gave you full credit for being the original photographer in the photo memo section. Please let me know if you would rather I remove the photo. I will gladly do so.
Thanks!
