Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in genealogy for as long as I can remember. I was blessed to have grown up near my grandmother, who happened to remember a lot of family names and stories. :) I credit my passion (or obsession to some...ha ha) as coming from her. I also happen to have a fondness for old cemeteries.

I have no problem transferring memorials to people who ask. I like to document whole cemeteries, giving me a lot of memorials that I have no relation to. So feel free to ask! :) On a side note, please do not email me asking for detailed info about cemeteries (like who is buried there, etc.). I do not have any specific information on a cemetery, other than what you see on this website. I find some on a map, and some are stumbled upon by just driving down the road.

I also do not mind if someone would like to copy my gravestone pictures for their family trees. It would be nice to receive a credit mention where ever you might post the pictures...but at the same time, it won't hurt my feelings if I don't. The pictures I take are for the "greater good" and I take them, hoping that someone out there will find them...maybe they might even help someone piece together part of their family tree that's been a mystery! :)

My family names: Carlisle, Rosan, Lively, Burton, Mathis, Ussery, Miles, Hicks, Lavender, Gustin, Trill, Offerman, Ritter, Wabbena, Sternberg, Tekstra, Doescher, Atkins/Adkins, Paton/Payton, Robinson, Bonham, Cleavenger, Barnett, Crawford, Fuller, Russell, Halfacre (just to name a few!)

Frank & Sarah E. Clark
Hi! I would like to point out an error in the info on Frank & Sarah E. Clark. You have Frank's date of death as 1893 & it is actually 1899. Thank you for your contribution & posting pics!! I really appreciate it!
Thanks you!

East Cemetery Tolland CT
I went to this cemetery last year and looked for your photo request for Hannah Bradley d 1826. I have the Hale Listings for this cemetery from know where she is to her husband Jabez. Unfortunately her gravestone is on the ground and upside down. I went back this year hoping that it had been righted..but often cemetery repairs are low on the list of where towns spend their money.
So I will fulfill your photo request and hope that they repair the stone in the future.
Good luck with your genealogy,

John G Carlisle. Are you by any chance related to him? I am working on a friend's (Jim Carlisle) family tree and find that John G. Carlisle is the 2nd great grand uncle of his. So whenever I run across someone who has so much information posted on a site I always wonder if they may be related to my Jim Carlisle in some way.

RE: Rox Hampton
Hello, am just now seeing your note about Rox....I would love to have you transfer him to me if that is something you still want to do. I finally got up the courage to undertake my enormous family tree and cant think of a better place for it safety than Find A Grave. Claudia Kane Janousek

tombstone pictures.
Use any tombstone picture I have taken. I don't want any credit.
I just don't want my pictures of people used anywhere.
Thank you for your work with FindAGrave.

Amanda, You're welcome to use the photos any way you choose - no credit needed. I enjoyed finding the graves last week and am glad I could help.

Thank you so much Amanda I thought that Abraham came from Germany but it seems I need to go back further to see who did come from Germany. This has been the information I received from my mom that this Abraham came from Germany and died in Pope County it would seem that he was born in Pope County so thank you very much I could have spent many hours spinning my wheels on this one.
I would be grateful for anything you might have if you don't have anything that great you just gave me a very large amount of information,
