Bio Photo FindaGrave Notes:

Find A Grave is now owned by and it is now considered a genealogy source.

On June 21, 2014, FindaGrave experienced a series of data corruption problems that included 1) many memorials in the system now have incorrect photos attached, 2) there are many links that lead to incorrect memorials, and 3) many memorials are now managed by people other than the original contributor who created them.

If you find memorial errors or photos added to the wrong memorials, please help solve these problems by sending edits.


I support the cemeteries in Longmont, Colorado, and have done family history research (both ancestors and descendants) on one of the founders of Longmont, Jarvis Marvin Fox, as well as my own family of Sutherland, Davidson, Corbett, and Fox. My research also takes me into that of my in-laws families including Drummond, McNulty, Tipping, Kehoe, and others. I take grave photos as a hobby.

Regarding gravestone photos, please remember that some of the older gravestones have mineral deposits or vegetation on them, and Find-a-grave volunteers are generally not in a position to clean the stones before photographing them. Cemeteries usually claim responsibility for ground maintenance, but consider gravestones to be family property, and therefore do not maintain the stones.

Older stones with mineral deposits, wear evidence, or grass or lichen growth will sometimes result in photographs in which details of the gravestones are difficult to read. If you have some specific instructions for me regarding your family's gravestone, pass the instructions along when you request the photo. I usually try to clean up minor contamination on a gravestone before taking a photograph.

If you have corrections for a memorial that I have authored, or you wish to be assigned as maintenance for the memorial, simply go to the memorial, click on the edit tab, then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" and ask for a transfer or enter information for a correction.

This process makes transfers and updates much easier to implement, and provides an audit history of changes. If you want a transfer, please tell me your relationship (if any) with the person whose maintenance you would like transferred. It is always helpful if you include your FAG member number.

For the record, I consider the FAG guidelines as reasonable, but not mandatory.

For copyright purposes, I grant free non-commercial use of photos I take for Find-a-Grave subscribers.

RE: Lillis M Fisher
Is there something you were hoping to find out from it or just wanted to see the marker? I can see if I can find an obituary from our local paper if you are looking for more personal information?

Hello John,

You have posted a grave marker photo to memorial # 75598954 for Vera Pulec.

Would it be possible to post that same photo to my earlier memorial # 23866705? the 75.... is a duplicate to mine.

Thanks, Alan

I went to Edgell Grove cemetery and found the gravestone for the Twombly's you requested pictures . I send you an email to the email listed on Find A Grave. I found some more names for you to make memorials.

RE: Re: Leon, Lydia Davis
Actually, I shot those back on January 10, 2009. You inspired me to upload them.
I wasn't sure that the GPS receiver was respectful, but these were the only pictures I had. I remember having to get the snow brush from my car to clear these off. Because the marker is flush to the ground it took some investigation to find it under the snow.
Luckily it's nice and sunny here today.

RE: Re: Oliver Freeman
Hi John,

I have added 5 freeman burials in this cemetery. Three of them are Oliverís daughters.

RE: Re: Oliver Freeman
No problem John. I must confess though that I did not know you had a request in for Oliver. I have been adding names & photos for this cemetery and was surprised when the request fulfilled popped up. I do not recall any other Freeman burials but if I do, I will record them.
