Are you related to the North's in Whitley Co., In? In particular Phil L North. I married into the family in 1977.

Oh John -- the Judge Arnold pics are wonderful. (Even the location is beautiful!) If his health had been better he would have been appointed to the Supreme Court, I am certain. I remember the first time I ever met elevator at Fed Bldg. - ages and ages ago. He had an amazing brown, leather briefcase - looked like odd suitcase or perhaps a remarkable Dr. Bag. He deserves to be remembered with quality images and you have provided them with such class...THANK YOU over and over...
What a good soul you are indeed!

Thank you
thank you so much for taking the time to photo Thomas C Pratt's stone. I have so many questions unanswered for this guy, I will figure it out though. Much appreciated and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Thank you so much, John. I've systematically traced Betty's family (the Woolsey's) and having her final resting place finishes this particular line. I really appreciate the photo!

Thank you
John I want to thank you for taking the time to find the graves and take a photo. I have never been able to find the graves of John Carmack section A and his wife Ruth; or Samuel Carmack section C-and his wife Dora. I walked back and forth over that cemetery on two different occasions in the sections they were supposed to be located, this was shortly after the cemetery had been vandalized last year and the stones were still knocked over. Where did you locate those graves? Thank you so much, your work means so much and has been so helpful.

Thank-you so much John. It's volunteers like you that make our work so much easier. And more worthwhile. Yes, I'm pretty proud of Grandpap Craig. I've been working on all of my ancestors for the past 30+ years. But I kind of focused in on W.T. when I saw he was a Civil War vet and no one else had worked on his history. I've made great strides in putting his family back together again---thanks to the internet and Some believe they charge too much for their fees (and sometimes I'm one of them). But there are definately times when it's worth every penny. Without them, I couldn't have traced W.T. and his life so well. Now I just wish I could find some of his living descendants from his sons... My hope is that they will eventually find Findagrave and his memorial page. Keep up the great work you do... You are very much appreciated. Brenda

Hi John. I would like to post your photo to William's profile on my family tree and I wanted to check with you first and ask for your permission to do so. I will add your name, date, and a referral to the memorial page at I wanted to ask before doing so. Is it okay? You took such a great photo and I'd love to add it to his page.

APPRECIATION for Goss Picture
Dear John North -

Your helpful photography not only adds an image (helping tell the biography here) but also adds the details a friend might not remember (first wife's name - accurate dtes, spelling corrections, locations, wedding dates, etc...) Thank you for all your assistance - not only for helping me with my takss but for all the others.
Thanks you very kindly.

Dear Mr. North --

Your camera-work adds so much to my friend's FIND A GRAVE listing. I did not kow her true name was 'Willie' as she had always been called 'Willa' by her friends. It was only through your photograph that an accurate recording of this information could be gathered. Thank you for your help. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

John --

I write with gratitude for your taking the time to photograph the tomb marker for our community's former Mayor. Mr. Thompson was a wonderful man. I am positive he would be very touched that someone had taken the time to do alllllllll of this for him.
Thank you very much - it is a fine, clear image and a wonderful addition to his FIND A GRAVE site.
Thank you.

Hi John,

I can't figure it, I have about twenty requests for transfer in to Find A Grave,some of them, the same type "uploaded by VA" and they have been in for months and ignored. I put this one in two days ago, and they transfered it.

Hi John, yep he was a Private in the 4th Missouri Volunteer Militia Cavalry Co. B and died of either measles or Pneumonia in 1864.

Thanks for the extra effort,

Hi John, things move fast, a closer relative confirmed Jacob's burial place, so the one you visited is him. I am trying to get control to add his b & d dates, Regiment & Company etc.

Thank you very very much,

I have a couple of pictures already as Jpegs. I do not know how to put them on the individual grave-pages. If I sent them to you with the addresses, could you help me put them on the person's page? (My computer skills are very limited - duh - but I can still find my way home by dropping bread crumbs!)

John - I never met Mr. O. however he took a pic of a sign in our frontyard when our (only) child was born. This was Jan"84 - and he himself was gone by the end of the year. So I feel 'a bit of a link'. I knew one of the groundskeepers at Calvary and he told me about the cigar and film showing up at the gravemarker - which I found charming. I have tried to write mini-biographies or an appro. poem with each entry I've undertaken - family & friends. (I'm stunned at members who have entered my family's gravesites and will NOT give them to me - Strangers with weird attitudes!)Thank you for helping me to help with these tributes.

Thanks again
Hi John, thanks for going out and getting these three latest photos. I was hoping, that there would be more on Jacob Sanders' stone, as I have a Cousin who died during the Civil War at DuVall's Bluff, AR on Mar 7th 1864. This is possibly his Union Army grave, but guess I will never know for sure.

The other two female Fortson's, are wives of Cousins. As for all the other Fortson's, you took photos of, I can not say for sure they are relatives, but am planning to contact the living Fortson's and see what becomes of that.
