Bio and Links
Bio Photo The memorials I have created are my attempt to get the information on Find-a-Grave with the hope that others will contribute to their accuracy. All information I have posted on the memorials has been gathered from the headstone, other contributors, books or websites I have found noting such. While under my custody, each memorial is considered by me as a "work-in-progress" waiting to be claimed by a family member.

If I have added and still manage a memorial for one of your family members, just let me know and I will transfer it to you. Of the memorials I manage, there are only a few that I have created for my own ancestors. I would love to have the opportunity to reunite the memorial with a family member. After the transfer has been made to you and you find that you are unable to manage it for any reason, feel free to transfer it back to me and I will hold it until another family member comes along.

Many times I take several pictures of a grave site or monument to show close-up or expanded views with the hope that the viewer can see the general site, inscription or the entire monument. If you don't want a photograph shown that I've posted to the memorial, please let me know and I will delete it.

While I'm at the cemeteries taking pictures, I try to also update the GPS coordinates of the grave site (if I have cell phone service). I have noticed that many times the coordinates will be off by as much as 50 feet or more. So, please use this tool as a 'general reference'. The coordinates will get you close but it may not be the exact location.

Feel free to use any of the photos I have taken for your use - you have my permission. There is no need to give credit to me if you choose to use the photos.

RE: Baillie - Find A Grave Memorial# 48176647
Hi Jim,

Thank you for your message regarding Mary McMurdo Baillie and her husband William that you sent quite some time ago. I apologise for such a tardy response but I've only just read it. I really appreciate you taking the time to photograph the stone and give me this information. It's a shame Mary is not mentioned at all. I suspect Jessie is William and Mary's daughter but I need to do some more digging on that one.

Thanks again for your help.

Best wishes,

George W. Reed-Ridgewood-Wellston Ohio
Hello Jim.
I am a novice findagrave researcher. I have found a photo attributed to you in which I have an extreme interest. My great great grandfather is George W. (Washington, I believe) Reed (1843-1917) and your photo indicates he is in Ridgewood Cemetery in Wellston, Ohio.
I contacted a woman who is an administrator at Ridgewood. She did not have a record of my ancestors burial site even though your photo places him there, along with his G.A.R. marker.

I have found my great grandfather George Washington Reed's -1864-1896-burial site and stone marker in Ridgewood.
Can you help me locate the George W. Reed in your photo.
Thank you so much.

Never mind, Jim. I figured it out--they renamed the cemetery. Thanks anyway.

Dear Jim,

I am grateful for the photo of the gravestone for John Shepler, his wife, and his daughters. Thank you!

Please note that I have credited you for your kindness on each of the four memorials. Your generosity is impossible for me to repay.

I wish you well, --Bob

RE: Smith Gravestone in Pomeroy
Thank you! Mary was Thomas Smith's daughter. If you have a clear picture of her inscription I would appreciate it. Thomas's wife was Jane.

John Shepler duplicate
Dear Jim,

Thank you for your memorial for John Shepler,

However, it is a duplicate; please see

Would you consider posting your photo of the gravestone on 64035619 and deleting your memorial? If not, no problem.

Perhaps you would also consider posting your photo on the memorial of John's wife, Kitty,

Please know that I am grateful for your efforts. I'm glad to be able to see the headstone.

Yours, --Bob

I have had a family member ask me to create a memorial for Hannah J Thompson Wilson. You took a photo of her husband and her stone and posted it on his site #164691728. Could you please add that photo to her site as well #173865943. Thank you for your findagrave work.
