Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy family history and when I discovered Find a Grave I was quite thrilled. Unfortunately none of my relatives were posted.

My mission was to get my relatives posted and while I was at it I posted the people around my relatives. I keep expanding the circle hoping the effort will help someone.

If you see your relative I would be happy to transfer management to you(except for my immediate family). Please don't assume that they are my family if they are linked to spouses or children. If I am sure they are related I link them.

I am not fussy about copyrights to my pictures posted on find a grave. Please feel free to copy and use them as you see fit. Not only is this site for the memory of loved ones, but it is also used to help others find their ancestors. Please feel free to post picture, death certificates, military records or any information you can provide. We are all in this together.

Last but not least, I believe in "Pay it Forward". If you found a relative through Find A Grave, go to your local cemetery and photograph a few headstones and post them on Find A Grave. You never know who you will help in their search for family.

Firemen's Memorial
Cannot thank you enough for all of the work you have done for the memorials of the seven men lost in the Atlantic Refining Co fire of 1924. Robert Smith is a distant relative, and I was combing through the Pittsburgh Post this morning. I can see a lot of time was put into these memorials, and I'm extremely appreciative.
I'll be attempting to connect him to his wife and children throughout the week. If you have any questions or there are any issues, please let me know.

Thank you again.

Barbara Pearson Ackerman
Thanks so very much for the picture of the area where she is buried. Is this the same area as where Mary Agnes Ackerman is buried who died as a young 3 year old or not close at all. It seems like they are not close at all. Mary Agnes was my dad's sister where Barbara Pearson Ackerman was his grandmother. His father was Daniel Oscar and he and his wife Mary Agnes Regan Ackerman are buried in St Louis Cemetery Louisville OH about 8 miles east of Canton where they had been living. My parents are buried in St Mary's Cemetery Massillon OH where a lot of my mother's family are buried. It was our home parish where I grew up and where all of us were married. Thanks again. Penny

Thanks again for you help!

Catholic Cemetery Association
Is there a website with the Catholic Cemetery Associations phone number? Do they just handle Saint Mary's or the entire diocese? I'd still be interested in seeing the illegible stones, would you send them if available to my email?

Thank you,

RE: James Denning Eastley
Hi Janet,

Thanks ever so much for the sleuthing you do. I don't know if James Denning Eastley has a headstone. I also noticed that his wife is also listed at the same plot. I was at this cemetery in 2007 with my sister and photographed the headstones in the Eastley family plot that we noticed and I didn't see one for James and his wife. There were a few very old unreadable headstones and I wish I had brought butcher paper and black chalk to trace them. I don't get back to Pittsburgh very often.

Again, thanks for your work in documenting headstones in cemeteries.

Hope you have a happy and healthy new year.

James Denning Eastley
HI Zim,

Could you please photograph the plot of James Denning Eastley(1836-1907). It is in St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Pittsburgh, Pa. Section D Lot 166d. I don't know if there is a headstone or not. He was my maternal great grandfather.

Thank you very much for photographing sites for those of us who are out of town.

picture of headstone

Thanks for finding and posting the small headstone for Mary Agnes Ackerman my dad's baby sister who died at age 3 in 1902. It is kind of a sad little headstone, but I am very happy to be able to see it.

Re: Carol Anne Kiley
Thank you for her death certificate, it allowed me to link her to her parents, who are very distant cousins. Sad case.
