Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.

I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.

So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

I saw on my father's memorial that you added a photo. Could you tell me where you got the picture?

Thank you for capturing the photo of my great Aunt Georgianna's grave at the Cortland Rural Cemetery. I never knew her, but she wasn't forgotten.

I noticed that you added a photo of Albert G Klotten to his memorial page. I was wondering where you found the photo? Are you related?

John f Myers family
I just added a daughter of his to CRC. Helen Myers Whedon #175454874. She is the twin sister of Helena Myers. Her obit says that she was buried at cemetery. Guessing on family lot.

Also - wondering if John's wife Maria Hunter Myers is buried at CRC. John's obit states that she died in 1867 and all children were born in city of Cortland and they were living there at time.

Find A Grave Memorial# 79784696
Thank you so much for the wonderful gift of time and effort you have given us by taking and sharing the grave photos. It has meant the world to me! I a asking about John Vosburgh's grave. He was married first to a Mary E. (no maiden name yet). She died shortly after the 1900 census. He remarried soon. I can't find her grave. I am wondering if there is an way to find out if se is buried somewhere in the Sand Hill cemetery. Can you me any ideas? He is remarried by the 1905 NY state census. Except for the Civil War and 1885 census he never leave the Cayuga area. I appreciate any help you can give me.
