Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a direct descendant of the Copp, Brown, Peck, Ward, McIntyre, and Shaw families on my father's side. Roloff, Crescelius, Garbrecht, Pfersich, Zastrow, and Ziemer families from Prussia on my mother's side. I am making a special effort to photograph stones at Terre Haute Cemetery in Henderson County, IL. Many of the stones are faded and breaking off. I want to preserve them digitally before it's too late. My Peck & Shaw ancestors rest at this cemetery, so it is very important to me.

As with everyone else, if you find a relative's memorial that I have created, you can have it to manage. Just drop me a note via Find-a-Grave. I am creating memorials because I can get to these cemeteries to take the pictures. I appreciate the memorials people have made for my family members who are buried far away. Thank you, all!

Good evening. I see that you made a memorial for this little girl; I made her a memorial several years ago. Would you kindly delete yours?

She was my great grandfather's sister.

Thank you,

Pamela Downes West

Hello Shawdau,

Thank you for adding a grave marker photo to Marie. I appreciate you doing this and wanted to personally thank you since I did not send a photo request but you added it anyway. You went above and beyond the call!
