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 their 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. While under my custody, each memorial is considered by me as a "work-in-progress" waiting to be claimed by a family member.

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 own ancestors. I would love to have the opportunity to reunite the memorial with a family member. After the transfer has been made to you and you find that you are unable to manage it for any reason, feel free to transfer it back to me and I will hold it until another family member comes along.

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, inscription or the entire monument. 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.

John Shepler duplicate
Dear Jim,

Thank you for your memorial for John Shepler,

However, it is a duplicate; please see

Would you consider posting your photo of the gravestone on 64035619 and deleting your memorial? If not, no problem.

Perhaps you would also consider posting your photo on the memorial of John's wife, Kitty,

Please know that I am grateful for your efforts. I'm glad to be able to see the headstone.

Yours, --Bob

Photo on 153344079
I just sent in a request for a photo for memorial 74514035. Then I went to her husband's page (153344079) and found one. Would you please post it on his wife's page as well? Thank you for your work for Find A Grave.

Sir, I am trying to find this cemetery, I know it is in Vinton Co. Ohio but that is all the info. I can get, I have been told it may be near to Zaleski Ohio which I could understand since some of the Ansel and Potter family are in the Oak Grove Cemetery there at Zaleski. David Ansel is my Great-great Grandfather on my paternal side. Thank you for any assistance you can give me

Hannah J Thompson Wilson
I have had a family member ask me to create a memorial for Hannah J Thompson Wilson. You took a photo of her husband and her stone and posted it on his site #164691728. Could you please add that photo to her site as well #173865943. Thank you for your findagrave work.

Rachel Sothard
Hello Jim,

Thank you for your efforts! I found the picture here that you took a Rachel Sothard's marker. That was a surprise to me on ohio at this time. Would you be able to tell if there were any other Sothard's there, and or if you took any other pictures to the markers to the left and or right? Just looking for any additional context.

All the best,

Ted Sothard

Jim, you added a photo of this cemetery to my 3x great-grandmother's grave, Matilda Jane Myers who is buried in Phillips Cemetery in Sugar Grove. I have seen her grave & she is in Philips. Could you tell me why, or is it an error? Thank you for any info you may have.

Selvidge Family
James C. Selvidge, wife Garnet Owen and son Thomas J. all died in Los Angeles, Calif, yet are buried in the Glen Haven Memorial Park in Winter Park, FL. Perhaps they are buried in the Glen Haven Memorial Park in Sylmar, LA Co, Calif.

Regards, MaryP
