Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been a great resource for freely sharing information among researchers. I am rather concerned that will figure out a way to screw it all up like they have with RootsWeb. I would like to think that they learned their lesson from all the negative publicity they received in that earlier takeover, but they are so focused on the Almighty Dollar that it's hard to predict -- their corporate greed overwhelms both their common sense and common decency. If they begin to charge or otherwise restrict access (mandatory registration or tracking cookies) in order to view the photos and data that have been freely donated by millions of volunteers, I know that I will immediately delete any of the items that I still have control over.

You may freely use any of the grave photos which I have taken for any legal purpose. The other items (personal photos, obits and other documents) may have copyright restrictions of which I am unaware, so use your own best judgement on those.

Alford Cemetery
Wowza!!! You ID'd my "Unknown Unknown" and I am flabbergasted that you looked at my memorials in that cemetery, finding the broken stone photo and then researched it. My hat is off to you, sir!
I was passing through the area on that particular day and as I frequently do, I photo'd some of the stones then looked up what I could find online.
Fantastic that this individual now has a name and dates so relatives may find them.
Thank you very much!

re: Warner Completions
Your assistance has been truly appreciated. Thanks for those requests that you could and did fill. The other three have been removed..., for now.

re: Warner Requests
Bob - I am initiating requests for only a few of stones at this time. I haven't yet researched others. L.A. Warner is possibly nephew of Jazez & Elizabeth Warner, but am certain that he is not brother of my 3x Great-grandmother.

Thank you for all that you have done to help me.

RE: Isabel Monroe McMillan
You're welcome. I wish we could have had a better image of her stone.

Re Higgins inquiry
Sorry for delay in response. I'm doing some checking to see if I can locate where they are buried. Will get back to you.

RE: Wilson clan grave photos
I will make contact with the cemetery after the holiday next week. If they can determine the location I will take a photo of the surrounding area or the unreadable stone. I'll be I touch.

re: Elizabeth Gilpin Warner
Bob - A appreciate your offer to transfer this and other Warner memorials, but there is no need. You have done the base work and I have nothing to add. Just a "Thank You" for your endeavors. I had looked for her several years back.., and now my g-g-g-grandmother is accounted for.

RE: John Hall grave photo
Thanks, not a big problem, it is less than 10 miles from my house and my great-grandparents are also buried there.
Your message also will help me for any future photo taking, as I said, yours was my first adventure. I see you also added another request for the same cemetary the day after I was there. I will try to find that one for you too in the near future.

RE: John Hall grave photo
I am new at this, yours is the first pic that I have ever fulfilled.
John & his wife Mary's stones were very hard to read, hers was worse and leaning badly.

I will try to get over there again in the near future with my other camera. This one was taken with my phone. I didn't notice the size.

RE: Conover Grave photos
I always try to look for similar surnames near photo requests.
The website for Mt Olivet is not 100% complete. You could call the office or email them to verify if family is buried there......make sure you state that the DC states Mt. Olivet & ask them to double check the card file. We have many people buried there, but not in their database.
