Bio Photo FindaGrave Notes:

Find A Grave is now owned by and it is now considered a genealogy source.

If you find memorial errors or photos added to the wrong memorials, please help solve these problems by sending edits.


I have done family history research (both ancestors and descendants) on my own family of Sutherland, Davidson, Corbett, and Fox. My research also takes me into that of my in-laws families including Drummond, McNulty, Tipping, Kehoe, and others. I take grave photos as a hobby.

Regarding gravestone photos, please remember that some of the older gravestones have mineral deposits or vegetation on them, and Find-a-grave volunteers are generally not in a position to clean the stones before photographing them. Cemeteries usually claim responsibility for ground maintenance, but consider gravestones to be family property, and therefore do not maintain the stones.

Older stones with mineral deposits, wear evidence, or grass or lichen growth will sometimes result in photographs in which details of the gravestones are difficult to read. If you have some specific instructions for me regarding your family's gravestone, pass the instructions along when you request the photo. I usually try to clean up minor contamination on a gravestone before taking a photograph.

If you have corrections for a memorial that I have authored, or you wish to be assigned as maintenance for the memorial, simply go to the memorial, click on the edit tab, then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" and ask for a transfer or enter information for a correction.

This process makes transfers and updates much easier to implement, and provides an audit history of changes. If you want a transfer, please tell me your relationship (if any) with the person whose maintenance you would like transferred. It is always helpful if you include your FAG member number.

For the record, I consider the FAG guidelines as reasonable, but not mandatory.

For copyright purposes, I grant free non-commercial use of photos I take for Find-a-Grave subscribers.

RE: James Charles McRae LAWSON
Hello John,

Yes our information matches with one exception, the birth of Robert LAWSON.
Scotland's People verifies these people and the birth/baptism dates.
Do you have any verifying information on your Robert Lawson born Mar. 19, 1798, Scotland please ?

There are two brothers:
JOHN Lawson b.1785 in Dryfesdale Dumfriesshire not far from Dalton Dumfriesshire
ROBERT Lawson b.1788 in Dryfesdale Dumfrieshire.

Parents AGNES Bell b.1758 Dalton and JAMES Lawson b.1754 Dalton Dumfriesshire marr. 04/11/1779 Dalton

These two brothers left Scotland, ROBERT migrated to Canada,(your family) ROBERT and his wife, JANE Underwood had a son in 1820 and called him
JAMES CHARLES McRAE Lawson. This is your family line, lots of people leave the name McRae out of Charles's name,it's important to keep
the correct line and connect it.
Charles McRae name could possibly be a grandparent? JAMES is a Lawson family name.

My line > JOHN Lawson b.1785 married a MARY Tinian 1809 in Graitney, Dumfriesshire and they had a son in 1814 and named him, JAMES CHARLES McRAE Lawson.
JAMES married a MARGARET Bell.JAMES died in Victoria, Australia in 1856 by drowning. (I haven't sighted the death cert yet to verify if this correct.)
So the question is the date of your ROBERT's birth. Could well be a transcript error but Scotland's People have ROBERT b.1788.
Also I have also seen the microfiche from UTAH at the LDS library and the birth for Robert is definitely 1788.
I hope this helps.
Regards, Sandra.

I took a picture of Cynthia Pompeo's grave but I took it with my cell phone and it is uploading to the F.A.G. on a rotated to the left. I will try to correct this soon.

Thank you very much for taking the photo of this headstone. It is very much appreciated.
I tried to get the date of birth and death corrected but it said that since you submitted the photo I couldn't correct.
If you can correct it, would you please do so.
The date for both is 31 May 1947.
Thanks. Jean Cooper

Thank you for searching for Mary E. Lampshire. The information and photo you pointed out on the website helped me to verify her as the person I believed it to be. Thank you very much for your help.
