Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the archivist in my family and have enjoyed researching my family genealogy off and on for the past several years. My favorite hobbies are scrapbooking, photography and walking through old cemeteries. I love the history one finds there. I am currently making heritage albums for my siblings and children. During my research I came across a photo of my great grandmother's grave marker. She lives across the country from me and I would never have seen it had it not been for a volunteer who photographed it. I want to give that gift back and am honored to volunteer for

In the spirit of giving, any and all photos I post are free to the public and can be considered part of the public domain.

Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet, each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our Blood contracts and beats a pulse,
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left,
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot
and come to visit you.

Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, it is a photo of the area, only. Her grave is unmarked. I found the location by using the number plugs in the ground. I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome. I am always disappointed when there is no marker.

Greetings - I noticed that you have a photo request for Harlan. I went to the cemetery and took a photo, but by the time I got home to upload it, one has already been added. So - if the one here isn't what you want, please let me know and I will send you the one I took.

Just trying to keep the photo request page clean!!

Have a great day.

RE: Floyd Bye
Regarding the unmarked grave, I understand your disappointment.

This cemetery has well over a thousand unmarked graves. After finishing up with the photographing of the markers and monuments here, I have been trying to document the unmarked graves with the substantial help of the folks in the cemetery office. Sometimes I find the marker completely buried, but not as often as I'd like. I did check Floyd's success.

I have posted a clearer photo of George J. Bye which appears to be darker.
If you have any questions please contact me via my email address.
I will be more than happy to send this photo directly to you for better clarity.

RE: Sarah Conner Jones
Just read your message. Have been discouraged in my search so have been lax on the search. My email address is old & have not set up a new one yet. So if you are a cousin we'd like to be in touch! Just let us know by leaving us a message here if you would like our address.
