Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I enjoy photographing tombstones for FindAGrave. I have even been known to dig stones out of the ground. :)

I do not consider my photographs "copyrighted". I post them for the sole purpose of helping other genealogists in their family research. However, if you post the photos on ancestry or another website, photo credit would be appreciated. :)

My goal is not to impress others by high numbers. I create many memorials just so they are documented, and try to add pertinent information to them. I'm more than willing to transfer these memorials to someone who can take better care of them, as long as they are not my relatives.

Surnames I am researching: Solomon-Haberman (Jennings Co. IN & Saline Co. MO); Stoneking-Livingston-Long (Greene Co. PA & Tyler Co. WV); Wagaman-Turner (Missouri, Kansas, Washington); Pannekoek-DeVoogd-Waterloo (Kent Co. MI); LePard-Densmore (Kent, Ionia & Barry Co., MI); Kirby-Payne (Howard Co. MO); Riggle-Guist-Ortz (PA & OH).

Hi Kathy,
Thanks so much for the obit - that's really something, the sisters dying on the same day.
Have a Merry Christmas!

John Kuntz
Thank you for the photo of John Kuntz. Unfortunately the John Kuntz I am looking for was born in Nov of 1854 in Ohio. Thank you all the same.

Moses REYNOLDS / Greenwood Cemetery

Thank you very much for your extremely fast follow-up to my request for a picture of Moses REYNOLDS's grave site! I am also looking for his wife, Emeline (CALLEN) REYNOLDS, who I believe is buried in the same cemetery (unconfirmed), and has not been added to Find A Grave. Did you happen to notice whether she was buried next to him, or perhaps on the other side of the marker?


PS - not sure if they were your flowers in the photo, but if so, that was a very sweet gesture.

Widening the Bio Area
That really is funny, the two of us stumbling across this trick quite accidentally. I find it quite useful, especially if the bio is long. Fifty-two (52) equal signs, or less, seems to work best. Any number past that causes the memorial to display outside of the boundaries of the white background, and does not look good. Thank YOU for helping me discover this.
