Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got interested in family tree research in 1997 at a Carty family reunion in Alberta, Canada. It was a smallish turnout, only about 400 people.. I have always had difficulty making sense of all the names and faces encountered at the reunions, who is whose child, etc. etc. On the way home from the reunion I decided to do something about it. I've been working on the tree ever since, and have found not only do I really enjoy putting pictures to faces and faces to pictures in my immediate family, I really enjoy exploring the ancestral tree too!

I live in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. Since I have found Find A Grave to be so incredibly useful in my own tree research I have created memorials for Grey Mountain Cemetery, Whitehorse, Yukon and Pioneer Cemetery, Whitehorse, Yukon as a way to contribute. Only Grey Mountain Cemetery is active, and I will happily take a picture for anyone for this cemetery in the future. I am very interested in transferring management to family members for memorials that are not my family as well.

Often when I take pictures of gravestones I will have to resize the file to meet the maximum allowed on Find A Grave. There are also times where I will take multiple photos, for context or whatever, but only post one. If a photo I've posted is of your relative and you want them please feel free to contact me by email and I'll give you original-size and any additional photos.

RE: Singleton Warfield Davis
Yes, you can use the photos I took for your family research. That's what they are there for.

RE: Jubal Goggin
Hi! I don't think I replied to your message the first of the year. Yes, you may copy my photo of the grave stone of Jubal Goggin. Thanks, Janet

Ward family. Are you a part of it? I'm looking for parents of Daniel D. Ward b. 1804 PEI.

Rod, I would like to thank you for following the Find A Grave rules, and US copyright laws in asking for my permission to use the photo that I have posted on Find A Grave.
I was actually somewhat surprised by your request because I have seen many of the photos that I have posted that have been used by other people on many other websites and you are the first person that has actually asked my permission to use my photos and I commend you for that!
You are more that welcome to use the photo of Rachael M. D. Huitt Edgar gravestone in any way that you see fit.
You also have my permission to use the photo of Rachael's husband, Harvey E. Edgar's gravestone if you would like!
I am glad to be of help in your genealogy research!

Hi Rod,

I just added new WALROTHs to the Newburgh Cemetery (same general region as Verona).

The name combination on the first caught my eye...

John McKnight Walroth 135651081
Warren Leslie Walroth 135651217

Cyril John Walroth 135650975

You're welcome, Rod. :)

Do feel free to use the photo as you see fit.

I've submitted a few other WALROTHs from the Verona Cemetery recently which may interest you.

RE: James Hosey Ketcherside
Yes you have my permission. I noticed what you had on your site about copyright so I added it to mine. I didn't realize you had to give permission. I hope that's alright
Oh, James is my 1st cousin 3 times removed. Susan Anna "Annie" Ketcherside was my great grandmother. I put pictures on here for everyone to use. Why keep it to yourself. I think the more people that have the information the better. That way it isn't lost in time.

RE: Curtis Hawley
I posted the photos for Curtis. I will try to do a rubbing next time I am out there and see if I can get anything to show up that way. The stone is so smooth that it might not show anything, but I will give it a shot.
