Bio and Links
Bio Photo The memorials I have created are my attempt to get the information on Find-a-Grave with the hope that others will contribute to its accuracy. All information I have posted on the memorials has been gathered from the headstone, other contributors, books or websites I have found noting such.

If I have added and still manage a memorial for one of your family members just let me know and I will transfer it to you. Of the memorials I manage, there are only a few that I have created for my ancestors. I would love to have the opportunity to reunite the memorial with a family member.

Many times I take several pictures of a grave site or monument to show close-up or expanded views with the hope that the viewer can see the general site or inscription. If you don't want a photograph shown that I've posted to the memorial, please let me know and I will delete it.

While I'm at the cemeteries taking pictures, I try to also update the GPS coordinates of the grave site (if I have cell phone service). I have noticed that many times the coordinates will be off by as much as 50 feet or more. So, please use this tool as a 'general reference'. The coordinates will get you close but it may not be the exact location.

Feel free to use any of the photos I have taken for your use - you have my permission. There is no need to give credit to me if you choose to use the photos.

Civil War Vets
I now have you in the back of my mind - so any civil war vet I see I photograph - there were some at Riverview not listed or not listed as such. Check for new memorials there.

RE: Samuel Foote Photo
Good to know. I typically attempt to do complete cemeteries or sections thereof. Groveland recently came into view and I saw how badly it needed work, it's out of my way, but sort of on my way to work, I'll try to stop in over the next month or so. I just finished Walnut Grove in Danvers a few months ago - quite a few civil war vets there, mainly from the 2nd Mass Heavy Artillery and one other unit which escapes me at present. It is striking that the Civil war was the last war where we raised units from localities.

RE: Samuel Foote Photo
More of a happy accident really, there was acceptable light on the Foote plot and while I was waiting for the sun to move for the plots I was interested in... I see you have quite a few requests in that cemetery - Civi war vets? What are you up to and how can I help?

I updated the photo on this memorial, didn't know if you wanted to remove yours or not. Have a great day.

The only marker is the one posted on his memorial, no Civil War marker or indication there was one.

Re: Ellis Jones #130868855
Hello Jim,

May I copy a photo you input on Ellis Jones's Find A Grave memorial? His wife Beulah Ann Brooks Kettell Jones is my Great Grandmother. I knew she was buried at Carbon Hill but didn't have a pic for her.

Thank you for your time,
Joy Kettell Clarridge

RE: Peter Sams
You are welcome. Today was pretty cloudy & I didn't have my full 'kit' with me. When I'm in the area with a sunny day & my stuff, I will replace the current pic with a better one.
