|Bio and Links|
After taking a cemetery tour in 2008, I decided to photograph and transcribe the graves of the Civil War soldiers buried at Pittsford Cemetery. That little project snowballed into an obsession to find any information I could about these hometown heroes.|
Since that first tour, I have given many cemetery tours of my own, and I continue to be amazed at the interesting people who lived in my own town and who now permanently reside in the Pittsford Cemetery and the Pioneer Burying Ground.
The majority of the graves I list on Find A Grave are people who reside in my neighborhood cemeteries. I have seen the graves and, in many cases, personally tend to them on a regular basis.
Find A Grave has been very helpful in my personal genealogy searches, as well as to my Civil War soldiers project. I look forward to assisting others with their searches as a contributor.
My blog, Illuminated History (www.IlluminatedHistory.com), details my Civil War soldiers project.

|Janet Dill||Dill family at Pittsford Cemetery|
I saw that you had photographed some gravestones for a Dill family in Pittsford Cemetery. It was a George, wife Elsie and baby daughter Esther. I was told that there was also a John Dill and Henrietta Dill (his daughter in law). Do you know if they are in this cemetery?

I may have a lot more information to share on this family. It is nice to see this site getting updated.

Thanks for the tip. Delbert was his brother's son. A transfer would be great. I am not sure if George has a tombstone. Any help would be great.

Do you stay as the creator?
|Katrina Garling||Evelyn Grace Garling|
I was curious if you receive notification for any changes made to the memorials if you are the original creator.
|John Kleinmann||Lucille Smallidge|
Parents have been added per your suggestion. Thanks!
|Melanie Pike||Leighton Thomas and family|
Vicki, thank you so much for taking these photos! And for making the changes I suggested and for indicating that there is no headstone for Jr. I really appreciate it! One day soon I will have to show these pages to my mother-in-law, who is a first cousin of Leighton Sr. :)

|John Kleinmann||RE: Althea Gerlach|
Thanks for finding those extra plots and making memorials for Lucille and her husbands. Do you mind transferring them to me? I had run into the 20 per week request limit, so just didn't have a chance to ask for those yet. I appreciate you taking the extra step! As for their sister Christine, she was married to Oscar Priest and buried at Oakwood in Penfield.
