Bio and Links
Bio Photo As my wife and I travel we try to fulfill requests where ever we are. We enjoy walks through different cemeteries. We find there is a lot of history, culture, and art to be seen in them as well as some very interesting inscriptions.
The discrepancy between our added and managed memorials result from taken over some memorials from a fallen graver.

If we have management of your relatives site and you would like to have it transferred to you please let us know and we will transfer it to you. Please also include your relationship to the person you are requesting transferred.
Also note that if your request is abrupt, demanding or in any way construed to be unpleasant, you will not hear from us.. We have grown very tired of this type of request.
The exception of course to a transfer is that if it is our direct relative we would be inclined to keep it ourselves.

As far as the pictures and information we enter on Find A Grave, feel free to use it for any Non Commercial purpose. We have no desire to try to control its usage or be credited for it. If it is for a commercial purpose, please contact us first.
I photo document large areas and do not strive for quality when I am just gathering pictures to make memorials from... I do post some of these photos, but will willingly remove them for a better photo if you have one...

PLEASE use the Edit tab located at the top right for corrections, additional information or to request transfers.

Hey, nice job.

Thanks for the Ewing memorial photos for Ardes & Alice.
Just love it when we get photos added to the Find A Grave memorials.
And thanks for adding them to Find A Grave for us too.

Hi there,

I found a memorial of an ancestor, but was wondering if when you transcribed them into findagrave, you got the dates from the actual stone as there is no picture - or if you were getting your info from a list from the cemetery office or something. You may not remember because it was in 2013, but I figured I'd ask. In case by chance you remember that cemetery.

unclaimed ones
Hi there,
I had to unclaim some that were going to run out. Things just haven't been the best here with only 1 vehicle right now.

So, the locations for Gillihan, Dowick, and Johnson are:

Jesse Gillihan MAPLE Lot 78 / Spc 6

John & Laura Dowick OLIVE Lot 79/Spc 1 & 2

Cynthia Johnson CEDAR ADD. Row 2 / Spc 28

Good Luck!

Thanks for the photos of Leona's burial location and for the note that she doesn't have a marker. Leona was my Aunt and I appreciate the photos.

McCrae, Richard Duncan headstone photo
JD, thanks so much for getting this headstone photo, it lists both Richard and Charlotte so It's doubly valuable to me. As far as posting it for commercial use, I'd like to use it on my family tree on but I wanted to clear it with you first. Obviously I wouldn't make money posting it there but it adds value for that site's owners, so if you consider that a commercial use please let me know and I won't use it there.

If you give your approval I will gladly credit you as photographer and donor. Either way I sure appreciate having it on Findagrave.
