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.)

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.

Beardsley/Beardslee Family Genealogy
RE: Beardsley's in Oxford, NY
Hi Kurt,

I submitted an edit for Anna Maria (Catlin) Beardsley, Memorial# 150429865, and included a link to the Beardsley genealogy published by Nellie (Beardsley) Holt. Her genealogy is considered the about best resource for the Beardsley family, though there are a few errors that have been identified.

The link will take you straight to the relevant page for Anna Maria and her family. There are some other entries for the Oxford, NY, Beardsley family as well, and I've submitted a number of other edits to link as many Find A Grave memorials as I have been able to make sense of.

As a Beardsley I'd like to thank you for the work you have been doing in the cemeteries, especially for my surname graves, but for all of the others regardless of family names as well! What you do is important work!

I just became aware of the story of little Meritt's window this past summer. I'm planning to visit this cemetery once the weather warms up again to see his grave and the work you have been doing.
