Bio and Links
Bio Photo Dec. 11, 2014 - The virtual cemeteries on my list that start with an asterick are one memorial in each of the international cemeteries I have worked on. I use this to easily find each cemetery.

Interesting projects I have been working on. (Newest work at top of list):

Murulla Railway Disaster A midnight train collision in the Upper Hunter Valley on Sept. 13, 1926 near Murrurundi, New South Wales. The different cemeteries are interlinked.

Victims of the Sunshine Station Railway Disaster Forty-four people died when one train ran into another in a crowded train station in suburban Melbourne in 1908. Newspaper articles and photos of those killed. Hyperlinks at the bottom of each page will carry you to the different cemeteries involved.

Coranderrk Aboriginal Cemetery, Healesville, Victoria, Australia. Amazing 150 year old photos of the residents of this Aboriginal Station, who believed that Queen Victoria had given the reserve to them in perpetuity.

Dom St. Petri, Bremen, Germany with photos from Sept. 2014.

Goodwood Motor Circuit Cemetery, Chichester, England with photos.

Chichester Cathedral, West Sussex, England with photos.

National Cathedral of Denmark, Copenhagen. With translations.

Sankt Petri Kirke, Copenhagen.

Oude Kerk, Amsterdam is a 14th century church that became an indoor cemetery. Each stone in the floor covers between 2 and 7 graves. I have found a lot of genealogical information and I have photographed both the stone and the area of the church the stone is in; you get a sense of the size of this place. BACK OFF, girls! The silver fox in a number of the pictures is MINE!

China Ashes is my list of people who died in China and the disposition of their ashes was lost. It is especially interesting considering how many of these individuals I could find photos for.

Royal Naval Cemetery - Liu-kung-tao

Holy Trinity Cathedral and the story of the ashes there (or are they?)

Taiyuan Massacre Graves

The Rebellion Cemetery of 1900

Yangpu Public Park

Heping Park

Weihsien Civilian Assembly Center

Coming soon: Photographed Bremen and Copenhagen graves!

-Recently I have been including a list of my sources to be placed under the ADD NOTE tab. PLEASE do not post my name and number; my ego just doesn't need that and your bio will just look sloppy. My greatest reward is a beautifully formatted memorial. THANKS, YALL!

Edward Gattey
Captain Edward Gattey RFA who died on 20 June 1924 at Wei-Hai-Wei, China while the Captain of RFA Francol was born on 12 March 1878 at Clapham, Surrey. He died from cerebal malaria - confirmed with the British Merchant Navy's Births, Marriages and Deaths Register held at the National Archives at Kew

Please note the spelling of his surname - I have confirmed this spelling with his 2nd Mates Ticket held at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwhich and with his Death record in BMD Register at the National Archives at Kew

A record of the Willess family written by Martha Mihallie Bundrant Willess shows she wrote her name "Mihallie" and not "Mahalia" as most spell it.

Lottie Victoria Wild (nee Brown)
The Death Notice is incorrect and she was born Lottie Victoria and used that name throughout her life.

Alvarez Davis Jr.
His wifes name was Letha May Standlee, not Francis Harrison. The only Harrison, in that family is his oldest son by Letha, Hearell Watson Davis, wife Loretta's mother Francis Harrison.
