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: 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

Hi there! Would you allow me to attach (with appropriate credit) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request!

Thanks for reposting your photo from the older Find A Grave entry to the newer one, I see you found the duplicate entry in the same cemetery. You also transferred to me, Elma Jane Slough Seeley's memorial to me. Thanks so much for doing that.

You posted a grave photo on memorial 6814230
The date of death wasn't completed, and I believe the memorial holder may no longer be active to make the edit corrections. In the meantime, another individual entered the same individual,with a bio, photos (entered as a grave rather than as a person) and there are family connections. Based on the newer entry, I would like to see your photo posted on the newer entry. If you would do that, it would be greatly appreciated.
