Bio and Links
Bio Photo "It is said every person has three deaths.
The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.
The 2nd death is when the body is lowered into the grave,never again to be seen in the flesh.
The 3rd and final death comes much later,when all who knew that person have joined them in the afterlife,and the name, even existence of that person vanishes from knowledge."
For this reason I make myself available to do tombstone searches and take photos of same in my area. I have retired from active work and enjoy doing genealogy research on my family. I will attempt to locate and photograph any requests. I do not date nor watermark my photos. Permission is granted to use my photos for personal purposes only. Please contact me for other purposes.

Old Proverb
I am going to add a pet peeve here. People who are only interested in numbers should at least wait a respectful time before posting a memorial to allow a family member to do just that. Posting a memorial a day prior to burial is very disrespectful of the family.

thank you
Thank you so much for the photo you submitted for William Jackson Stanford! In his early days he and his wife were signing documents with this spelling of their surname: "Staniford". I have seen it several times, in their own penmanship. Genealogists, now you know he was the one who changed our family name's spelling to a more simplified form in his latter years. But look for them under "Staniford" in early census records. William's wife was Emma Daisy McClara.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts in the Stanford family!!

Thank you so much for fulfilling the photo request. I personally had taken a photo of my Great-Grandfather's stone while visiting Indy many years ago but lost the photo due to a computer crash.

I really appreciate volunteers such as yourself, know you are valued.

Thank you again.

If you go to the memorial and click on the cemetery the website will come up. Click on see all obits and put Sofie Hartman into the search boxes and she will come up. She is most definitely in that cemetery and listed on their website as being there. Maybe they never entered her into the office computer? Weird. Don't fret over it.
