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).

RE: Hennessey Cemetery
I don't know about the cemetery office, but there is a list and maps at the Hennessey library.

I'm afraid that there is no stone, as I have walked and photographed the whole cemetery. Of course, I could have missed a few...

Thank you so much for the photo of the headstone of the husband of my 3G grandmother! My daughter and I searched for a long time when we were there about 7 years ago and never did find it.

Thank you very much for adding the additional information to her memorial. It was also kind of you to post my name and contributor number but that is not necessary. This is a collaborative site where we all work together! ;)

Thanks again.
