Please read before sending corrections:

I'd very much prefer to transfer a memorial to someone who is researching the person listed than make corrections. Even if you are only distantly related or not related at all. If you know more, you are a better person to manage it than I am. (I do keep management of memorials for my own relatives rather than transfer those to well-meaning non-family members.)

Per Find a Grave guidelines, I do not add obituaries to biographies. Please send citation information (e.g., name of publication, publication date, page number, etc.) instead.

For memorials that I manage, I prefer to have searches for the information on the headstone be able to bring up the memorial. For instance, if the stone says Ethel Jones, I will keep the name listed as Ethel Jones. If Ethel's legal name was Gladys Ethel Jones, I will note that in the biography.

Please use the Suggest any other correction or addition link on the Edit tab of a memorial to request transfer of that memorial.


Feel free to use my photos under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. That means you can use them without asking me so long as you credit me, you don't sell them, and if you make something based off my photos, you must also let people use *that* on these terms. If you do not include attribution when you use or repost my photos, I will send a take-down notice. I don't ask for much. Please just include it so I don't have to be a bad guy.

All my photos are also available on Flickr in higher resolution, as Find a Grave limits photo sizes.

Jones-Lord Memorial
Dear Philip,
I hope it's ok, I added another photo to Clinton and Olive Jones, Evergreen Cemetery, Portland, ME. The existing one is in snow, and I happened to photograph it the other day in its full glory, which is fall in Evergreen Cemetery! Enjoy.

RE: Weiss
I'm in the same boat my gr. grandfather Kritz married a Weiss. Have it recorded he died in my home town, can't even find a burial place. Frustrating, when we have my husband's traced back to 1300's.

RE: Leonard and Mary Parker
The name Patrick Parker died July 2, 1878 50 years is clearly engraved on yet another side of the stone.

As a matter of interest my great grandmother was a Weiss. The little bit of checking I did, no connection.

John Benda
My husband and I are involved with the Bijou Hills Union Cemetery, located in southern Brule Co. I am often on FindAGrave and in checking out the Bendon (Holy Trinity)site, I noticed your request for a photo of John (J. L.) Benda's headstone. We went for a drive this afternoon and stopped to see if we could get a photo for you. Hope you are able to make out the dates and lettering...
