Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave says: ...the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.


I've been doing genealogy since the fall of 2006. I can't recall exactly how or when I discovered Find A Grave, but it has been an amazing resource that I come back to time and time again. I try to contribute here in my own small way by adding memorials for people I discover during the course of my research and by submitting edit requests to add maiden names, parents and spouse links to existing memorials. My goal is to honor my ancestors and relatives by subscribing to Find A Grave's mission as outlined above.

In keeping with this mission, I will usually have no problem with transferring management of any of the memorials that I currently manage. To request a transfer, please put in a request using the edit tab in the upper right of the memorial, and then use the "Suggest any other correction or addition" link to let me know your Find A Grave contributor number and your relationship to the person whose memorial you are requesting transfer of.

I believe in sharing the information I've gathered (other than Social Security numbers and information on living people), as I've learned quite a bit from others sharing with me. You can usually find additional information about the people I've added, along with my source for that information, by visiting my website. Alternately, feel free to post a message here, or send an email using the link at the bottom of all the pages at my website.


Note: Feel free to make use of any of my photos (unless it's a photo that I've posted by permission of someone else as noted in the photo caption), although I would greatly appreciate a credit being given of "Photo by Dan Stone (". Thank you.

John Stone 2nd great grandfather
I just started researching my ancestry and I was wondering if you knew the race of John Stone. I've been told that I have native american ancestors on my grandfathers side but I don't know how far back. If you can help out I'd appreciate it. If not no big deal. thanks for providing what you have!

RE: Photo request
Thank you. The stone was definitely a challenge but that is half the fun, searching for the elusive ones.

Photo request

You have a photo request at Most Holy Trinity Cemetery in Huron County, MI. for Philp Schmitt 1845-1905. I located the stone last month. It is very weathered and did not photograph will. I returned today, with my supplies. I tried a couple different techniques. I first foiled the stone which I thought worked great, I also tried chalking (which did not turned out the best). I washed the stone off after I photographed it. I will include the foiled photo since I think it is the easiest to read.

Melbourne cemetery
Made a second trip in with a friend and found one more headstone new to us. Have you had a chance to look at the photos on F-a-G? We plan on going in to clean up some when the weather is not monsooning!

RE: Melbourne cemetery
Hi Dan!
Finally, we found the Melbourne cemetery. A friend of mine went up and took photos. We are going again in a couple of weeks, and I want to get some backup information and then try to get the cemetery cleaned and somewhat restored. I am so excited! You can email me if you want to chat more about this cemetery....

RE: Murphy, Nancy
Could you please make memorial suggestions, links, dates, etc. from the memorial page? It is so much easier for me, otherwise I have to look them up and with the number of grave memorials I manage it is almost impossible to find them with just their names.
Thanks so much!
