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.

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.

Al, I would like to contact this person but their message has been turned off.
She has a family member I would like to see if she would transfer to me. Can you put her in touch with me?

RE: Basil W Cross

I located the expired listing and sent a message to the seller about the picture. He is going to put me in touch with the person who purchased it to see if s/he might be interested in selling it. Here is a link to the expired listing -you'll have to scroll down to see the actual listing.

RE: Basil W Cross

Thanks for your reply. Here is a link that will take you to all the info I have gathered so far.

The picture posted there was listed for sale on Ebay. IT was identified by the seller as John R Cross of 113th Ohio. Note there were two John R Cross from Ohio who both served in the Union Army during the Civil War. As I have Cross ancestry, I copied the image and have just now made any headway in researching him. Unfortunately, the listing has now ended and I didnt save it, but I did copy the picture. The listing might be found by searching Ebay for ended listings?

Please let me know how this man fits in with your Cross ancestry - if he does. Thanks so much.

Basil W Cross

I found your memorial for Basil W Cross b. 1812. Did Basil have a son John R Cross that was a Lieut in the 113th Ohio Infantry?

Hi Al, YOu have two photo's of the same headstone. You might consider removing one so family has space to add a picture of the person. Just a thought. Thank you for your kindness shown towards our families this year, Wendy
