|Bio and Links|
I'm a collector of many hobbies including hiking, genealogy, geocaching, knitting, babywearing, home production of everyday items, gardening, and outdoor survival. Due to my tendency to shift hobby focus often, I may take long breaks from graving, but I always respond to messages. Do you think we might have a cousin in common? Let me know!|
The surnames I am most interested in are: Acker, Bird, Bradley, Brenner, Burnett, Campbell, Carter, Casstevens, Crisp, Crowder, Fix, Geibel, Gray, Hellinger, Henry, Hess, Humble, Ingerton, Jewett, Jones, Kempf, Kley, Kremer, Loerwald, Massey, Matthews, Moran, Myers, Oaks, Oberhaussen, Otto, Paetzold, Passmore, Pick, Reagor, Reidel, Sargent, Schlosser, Schmitz, Scott, Steinmetz, Tanklersley, Tidwell, Troxel, Walter, Walterscheid, Wheatley, Wiggins, and Zehl.
I live far from any of the places where my family was buried, so I generally am not related to any of the memorials that I have created (the exception is Holy Family Cemetery in Nazareth, TX). Since these are not my own family, I cannot answer any genealogical questions, especially for cemeteries in Iowa and Colorado. I have transferred all memorials I created that are not family to Find a Grave for management. If you want any of these memorials transferred to you, then I suggest contacting Find a Grave.
A note about my photos:
While I respect the decision by others to copyright their volunteer photos and restrict the distribution of their work, I do not copyright my pictures. Any photos that I submit of headstones are free for anyone to use. You may upload them to any webpage you wish, paid or otherwise. You may also publish them freely on your webpages and family history books. You may credit me if you wish (send me a message for my real name), but it is unnecessary.
My primary reason for this is that I am mainly taking pictures of headstones of people who are not in my family. I do this as a gift to those who cannot travel to visit these headstones in person.
Second, I am not a professional photographer; I am not even a good photographer. Despite the shortcomings of my work, I am submitting these photos online because I feel that a bad photo is better than no photo at all. Also many of the headstones are getting so weathered that I very well may be the last person to be able to read the text. On that subject, I will not be offended if you wish to replace any of my photos with a better one.
PLEASE don't use shaving cream on markers! Here is why: http://ncptt.nps.gov/blog/shaving-creamgenealogists-friend-or-cemetery-conservators-foe/

Thank you! Yes, these are family members. I don't even remember what I posted now about Amelia...:D.
|Sheryl Stookey||Elizabeth J. Bailey Booze # 76117164|
I am so grateful that there is this picture now. I recently visited the cemetery. I had been there several times before long before they did updates to the city and cemetery and long before camera phones or the thought of even posting pictures. I had wondered since the graves were so close to the sidewalk & corner if they still were there. I think the tree it was near is gone. I searched and they must of moved the stones. I found a few of her children's but I couldn't find hers or her eldest son's. They were not where they used to be. That sort of angers me to think that they can do that..just move the gravestones (and probably not the actual remains) elsewhere. I am glad that they at least were able to put the stones that had been on the ground broken back up but wonder what happened to the others.

Since you or I edited this to include the link to her parents...can you remove your note about not having that information?
|Sue||RE: Paetzold and Adam photos|
Sorry I changed it
I also added Dolors information to Cemetery
Would you like me to transfer these to you?
I am new at this so will have to figure out how to do it

|Donald Ward||RE: Robert McCauley headstone photo request|
Do you by any chance know the burial location? Moore will no longer give that information to anybody besides family. Moore is much too big a place to just walk around looking for a headstone. If you can tell me the location I would be more than happy to go photograph the headstone.

|LeeAnn Waltz||RE: Baby Agnes|
You're welcome. I'm so glad I could help Baby Agnes.
|LeeAnn Waltz||RE: Photo|
You're very welcome and thank you for the compliment. I added a photo for a baby Agnes McCauley, who is buried next to Robert and Margaret. LeeAnn
|Mary(Coggin)Russell||RE: Transfer of Elizabeth Walterscheid|
You are very welcome. I am very flexible and want everyone to have their family
|Donald Ward||RE: HIPPA?|
Unfortunately, it seems that cemetery associations have the power to even prevent taking photos of headstones unless you are family or have the written permission of the family. I have run across a few in the Metroplex that have made that a requirement. Unfortunate, but true.

|HiD||William Moore 85472321|
Hello, I'm sorry to say but it seems William's marker is unmarked. He shares a niche with Melba Moore in which I've added the photo to both Melba and William's memorial.
I've requested an edit stating William's marker stating his marker is unmarked on his memorial.
