Bio and Links
Bio Photo In my youth, I lived in a small town in northern Indiana. One of the places we played was in the local cemetery. I become fascinated with the headstones and wondered what the people under the stone were like.
As a retired phone man, I put that fascination and my love of photography to work.
I'm not into the numbers game. I take time and try to find some facts on the person I'm writing about. Feel free to use my photos and my writings if it helps you find your past, as long as its not for profit. If I can help you in any way, drop me a line. Additions and corrections are welcome.
I'm sorry, I don't work well with rude or pushy people. If you don't receive an answer to your request right away, think about it, and try again.

Gate Shot
Mike, the photos you posted of the flowering tree need to be deleted and re posted as "OTHER". Their posted as grave. All of the memorial pages show up as having grave photos. Thanks

Goepfrich transfer
Mike, would you please transfer ownership of Mary T. Goepfrich #83166118? Her husband is Raymond A. Goepfrich #51364683. The Goepfrich married into my Hungarian family line and I have been researching them for many years and have most of their families linked. Thank you very much, Nadine

Alan Chapel 83773762
Hello, approx a week ago I fulfilled a photo request for Alan Chapel at Germania Cemetery in Sanilac County MI. I wanted to point out that the DOB on the memorial and headstone differ. The memorial reads Oct 3, which is the wedding date. The headstone reads June 7th. Thank you.

Hi Mike,
I went back out to Emerald Hills Cemetery and I happened to see 2 more Kring graves. I did not know if they were of interest to you, but I went ahead and took photos of them in case you need them. The names were:

World War II
July 19, 1925 - Feb 13 1962

Stephen D
June 9, 1958
Sept 19, 2011
Together Forever
Jacquelynn A
Feb 22, 1954

If you want the photos, I can email them to you.
