Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 (, details my Civil War soldiers project.

RE: Merle Dundon
ARE YOU related, I wish I could find his children, he had all the OLD OLD pics of our family. Years ago we used to correspond, and now he is gone while I had put my genealogy away to care for my mom. I know he had a treasure of old family pictures and keepsakes.

You are welcome about the articles, he was an amazing man. he helped me so much with old genealogy info. I sure wish I hadn't take time away and kept in touch with him....I enjoy adding the old clippings I find in my grandma's old keepsakes to Find A Grave. Always a surprise when you find a memorial with treasured info :)

Thanks for clarifying. Normally I try to clean stones up but had little time. Will certainly let you know if I have a chance to do so.

Thanks Vicki for taking pictures of my aunts and uncles plus my infant cousin. They had the same exact shape stone. Were they near each other? If you have the plot letter/number, could you let me have them? You are getting to know most of my paternal NY family.

Thanks again for all your help and time.
