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. My ultimate goal is to get enough information on the memorial so that a family member will be able to find it and take it into their care.

If I have added 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. I have noticed that many times the coordinates will be off by as much as 50 feet. 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.

Sharon Lowery
Utah Ridge Cemetery
You don't know how long I have waited for someone else to know of this Cemetery. My husband's Great Aunt is buried there. Her sister told us just before she died. I don't know if you will be able to find it or not. Her name was Wiletta (Etta) Lowry and she died around 1910. We were told she had married a man who's last name was Hiatt, or some varying spelling of it. Could you also check to see if there are any Lowry's there? I would greatly appreciate it. We have been looking for her for a long time. She was born Aug.1879

Thank you

Thank you for locating my grandfather's grave. As I live so so far away, I cannot visit so it was wonderful to be able to see the pictures. Thank you for the work you put into this.

Thank you for photographing and posting her tombstone. It is sad to see how badly weathered it has become but it is comforting to know she had a marker.

Lamott Cemetery
Thank you, thank you!

Really??? You found the area where the plots are? Everyone has told me this cemetery has "disappeared." Did you happen to take any photos of the area? His descendants still have family reunions in the area the family relocated to after his passing. The family cemetery there (Blanchard Township, Putnam County) recently was and is being restored.

RE: Christian Dutton
Hi Jim, I'm so impressed with the diligence and concern of you and the other Find a Grave researchers I've corresponded with. It's too bad that the fragile grave markers at this cemetery are probably deteriorating further from neglect. I wonder if it would help for me, as a (probable) relative of Isaac Dutton, to write to the landowner and request information. I suppose it's a major undertaking to repair even a small cemetery, but if no relatives ask him about the graves, he may think no one cares.

Isaac Dutton 1836-1840
I live in California, so I really appreciate the detailed description of this cemetery. I had Dutton ancestors in Fairfield County in 1820-1840, and I think Isaac and Christian must be related to them, and might help me fill in some gaps -- but it sounds as though Isaac's stone wouldn't be legible even if you were able to find it. I appreciate the time you've spent on this.

Christian Dutton
Thank you for the photo. I was hoping to find an inscription with the names or initials of the parents (possibly William or Baker Dutton), but it doesn't appear to be legible. I'm glad there's a tombstone, though - an earlier report indicated that there wasn't one. Thanks again.

Shaw & Pappas Families
I have made the transfers you requested for the Shaw & Pappas families. Thank you for the nice note you sent us. If you haven't been there before, the Kasler's Kitchen in Trimble makes a great club sandwich.
