Bio Photo Learn something each day, and teach something each day ...

For me, photographing cemeteries has evolved from an interest in genealogy, nature, and a quest for understanding life. I enjoy following the paths of my ancestors, searching for their final resting places. I also enjoy fulfilling photo requests. Finding graves brings a rush that makes the search worthwhile. Photo volunteer work is just a small way of contributing and giving something back to others. Cemeteries are by nature peaceful places, and I enjoy the peace I find while searching. Yet, my favorite cemeteries are those that are filled with activity, either relatives visiting their loved ones, joggers, or people walking their dogs.

Currently Pekin IL is home base (but I love to travel).

Hi - I saw your request to obtain info about the text on this gravestone. I understand from your caption, you have a higher resolution photo. I can take a look at the higher resolution photo to see if I can come up with the text - by doing some photo enhancing and working with the image. I've had some success and would hope to be able to offer you some information from the gravestone image. My email address is posted on my profile page. Would be glad to help out a fellow volunteer . . . . you have added so much to this site and along the way have provided so much valuable information to people now and for many future generations to treasure!!!!!

Greg, I am sorry to be so slow in thanking you for trying to find a marker for my uncle, William Harris. Since then, I have had an opportunity to visit that cemetery and it appears that, indeed, there is no marker. Your responiveness is very much appreiated. John N Harris

Greg, I'm looking for this man's wife. They had a daughter and she married a Stoehr and moved to Nebraska. Pretty sure this is her father as he was a Civil war vet and carpenter by trade. Is there any chance the wife and mother aren't not posted in this cemetery but the memorial there? Believe it's a Mary but not to be confused with another family there from Pekin. Can you help if poss.

Thanks MJA

Hi Greg, I suggested an edit for Mr. Dorrycott based on his wife's obituary which stated his DOD. I just added her to the cemetery.
