Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm just a guy who became interested in tracking down my family tree, which led me to Find a Grave.
So now I'm trying to help out filling a few photo gaps in nearby cemeteries.
I try to do more than just take photos. I try to reconstruct the families that I find, especially the women, who many times have no other identity than "Mother", or end up kicked to the curb over divorces and such.

RE: Peters
Thanks for letting me know about this. I don't know what happened back there but it's unfortunate. There might still be descendants of this family that might know something and maybe someday something else will turn up. I'm glad you created a page for her.

I appreciate you getting the photo of Josephine Peters and for her husband Lewis. I saw the creation of the memorial for Hannah Lydia, the first marriage of Lewis. Is she buried that grave plot also? I didn't see a marker for her. I'm afraid I don't know anything about her.

Hector VanTyle Comfort Hamlin
That reminded me that I had wondered before what would happen if the name did take up the whole line, so I added VanTyle Comfort after Hamlin. That fit, so I added it again, and found out that it starts a second line.

marker with first names only
That's a tough one. The only thing I can think of is that maybe the cemetery's records will show who those people's parents were. I came across something similar in our local cemetery, where the markers on three or four side-by-side graves had only initials. Luckily the City's website has a great map and database for the cemetery, and I was able to figure out who they were for sure. If I remember right, though, doing a search on Find A Grave's using just the initials found some of them, since whatever list was used to enter most of the cemetery on Find A Grave had the plot info. Good luck!
