Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have entered a memorial for a relative of yours it is because when I was at the cemetery I look for other 'interesting' headstones and something must have drawn me to your relative. I will gladly transfer ownership to you if you e-mail me thru find-a-grave or at and give me your membership number.

I welcome corrections and updates...please use the EDIT tab on the memorial rather than contacting me directly.

You have my permission to use any of my FaG photos for your personal use. You will need to use the images on FaG because I do not keep the original .jpg images after I post...too many pix and not enough terabytes of storage!

I particularly enjoy visiting the remote rural cemeteries. I make every effort to find who is the steward of the cemetery and attempt to get a map of the sections and lot locations. (usually the county clerk at the courthouse has the steward information). Most of these stewards are old and all share a common frustration that nobody wants to take over the responsibility from them when they are gone. They are delighted to learn that FaG has taken the interest to list and photograph graves in their cemeteries.

Thank you!

Huh, I guess the person who added Susan McCay's entry deleted their account. Hm!

Which 2 McCay's are at Topeka Cemetery?
Hi, thank you for trying to find Susan McCay's headstone! I will notify the owner of the memorial that there is no record of her being buried there. In your message you said the sexton knows of 2 McCays buried in that cemetery, 1 of whom died as a baby. On Find A Grave, there are 2 McCays listed in Topeka Cemetery -- one is Susan, who died at 11 (although the only source I can find for that is the FG entry, so who knows...), and must be in a different cemetery, and the other is Florence Mae McCay, her sister, who died at age 4. I'm still missing a few McCay children in my family tree so I'd love to know if there are any more buried there! Thanks!

Mem. #69366983
Hi - I was doing some research and a came across Mem. #69366983 for PFC William Reed WILSON, Jr. I see that you have posted a photo of a serviceman with that memorial, and I suspect that either you either meant to post it with a different memorial or that there are two servicemen named William Reed WILSON who have been conflated. Elmwood is an African-American Cemetery, and a newspaper photo of PFC WILSON has recently been posted with the memorial. You may wish to revisit your posting. If you did mean to place that photo with the memorial for some reason, you may wish to add a caption explaining who it is. Thanks for your work on FindAGrave. - John
