Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in "paying it forward" started after I found a record of one of my ancestors on Find a Grave. This led me on an entirely new branch of genealogical discovery. I soon became a volunteer photo taker and then branched out to photographing entire cemeteries.

I think it is important to document history and it is unfortunate that many stones are so worn away that they can't be read, or there is other damage to the stone that makes the documentation of that person's history incomplete.

Find a Grave is an astounding phenomenon! Feel free to use photos I have taken. Please ask if you would like a memorial transferred to you for management or tell me if there is additional info I can add to the memorial. My goal is to improve accuracy and to give someone else that needed leg up in their genealogical research.

Jane Schook Rogers Grave
You posted a photo of the Jane Schook Rogers tombstone in St. Mary of the Lake Cemetery, Baileys Harbor, WI. I was unable to find this tombstone when I searched the cemetery. Can you give me some idea of where it is located in relation to the main entrance? Thank you!

RE: Amanda Alcott
Hi. I wonder if I could ask one more favor of you...I see that you added Amanda's husband's gravestone photo. Thanks. From your photo it looks like it's one stone but with sides. But I can't figure out what Robert's side says. By going back and checking a distant cousin's genealogy I found out that he was buried next to Amanda and more about how he got to the US. So I know he was born near Stoke-on-Trent UK and died in Galien, Michigan. But I'm really curious if there's an epitaph on the stone.

Schram
Do you know whose headstone your photos for Schram # 124317736 and # 49996947 are affixed to? They look like they are both on headstones shared with someone else. I strongly suspect they are the brothers of another man in the same cemetery. Thanks for posting the images.

RE: Amanda Alcott
Thanks but I don't think I've done enough research yet. I know that she had 6 children plus the one on the tombstone. I've tracked her and her husband through the census but that's about it. Though I did also find the marriage in Illinois records. Her maiden name was Hill and she moved with her family and husband to Juneau County very early, they are on the list of early settlers. With the six children and all her Hill siblings, it would seem that she has hundreds of relatives in the area. Hopefully one of them will search through local records and find more info. I have lots of info about her daughter Alpharetta (aka Etta) who moved to Long Island and had 6 children (who survived childhood) herself. Etta was my great grandmother. Amanda's husband is one of my other research projects, it seems he came to the US from England alone at age 1 and became a farm hand to the Hill family. Some day I'm going to find out why!
