Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a gravestone conservator, owning a small business that deals will the restoration and cleaning of historic gravestones and take great pride in fixing every single stone we take on. I am also a local history maniac, who has a hobby (some may call it an obsession) of finding and visiting old cemeteries, especially small, rural plots. If I have a memorial of someone that is in your family or very close to you, I would be more than happy to transfer it to you. Also, if you have any extra information for any memorial I have, please feel free to send me an email. I will update the memorial very quickly. (I secretly love getting added information or corrections to the memorials I upload.)

Ebenezer Green photo

Thanks for the gravestone photos. I was pretty sure I'd get a quick response for a veteran, especially a Revolutionary War veteran! He was the brother of a direct ancestor of mine. Again, thanks!

John McHarg Coffin
There's no wife listed for him - is there any chance is wife was Lavenia SHEARS Coffin (1799-1847)?
She's buried at Acra Cemetery; he's not listed there...but he was still alive in 1871 in Victory, Cayuga, NY - P.O. Bethal Corners, NY.

I'm having a really hard time tracking down these relatives! They're my g'grandparents.

Unreadble Headstone of Relatives

I am trying to get an idea of the inscriptions of George E. and Nellie (Whitaker) Newton's Headstones-they are Buried at St. Peter's Graveyard in the city of Bainbridge in Chenango County in the State of New York.

Is there someone who might be able to help me-even if I could just get the inscription on the Headstone/s-it would really help me.

If you could please send me an e-mail at this address ( and let me know-I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

Betty (South) Young

RE: William Wheat
This could be one I found duplicated in another cemetery? Not sure now. Look for name and dates in another cemetery? I have found a few where duplicates are in different cemeteries; don't remember on this one. Thanks for the help.

Lois Wells-Lewis memorial #127819528
Greetings Kurt,
My name is David G Smith, Find A Grave member #48362372.

I think that it is wonderful that you have "the passion" to fix, clean and restore memorials for people. It is a lost art for sure and not commonly found.

Would you please be so kind as to transfer the Lois Wells-Lewis memorial #127819528 to me as she is the wife of my 5th great grandfather on my mother's side, Beriah Lewis. I would like to add her family to the memorial for clarification because there is confusion with a Lois Maxson-Wells memorial#102200910. (The real memorial for her is #54568523.)

Thank you.
