Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a house call veterinarian and I take care of small animals all over Los Angeles County. I provide preventive healthcare, routine medicine and when the time comes, gentle and compassionate home euthanasia.

In my spare time, I like to hike and I like to research my family tree. I've done a lot of legwork on,, and many others. Along the way, I've discovered how important obituaries and grave markers are. They contain a lot of valuable and interesting information, but they also give us an opportunity to pause, remember and reflect.

I decided to become a volunteer photographer at to help other folks in their quests for keepsakes and their desire for knowledge. Los Angeles has some pretty expansive cemeteries and I am happy to explore them for others that can't make the trip.

Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills is my main stomping ground, because it's close to home and the plot locations are almost always provided. If not, they are very easy to find online. If you have an interest in a grave somewhere else in Los Angeles, I'd be more than happy to photograph it, if you can provide a plot location.

RE: McCormack, Tait, Duke, Clark
No, not for the individuals you were looking for.
You can see that there have not been any burials there for over 70 years. There were only 4 actual headstones, and many (maybe twenty) simple crosses with no information.

RE: Houlihan Marker
I actually had the opposite side photos on my camera disc but missed them when I was photo-shopping the photos.

Sorry I missed them but they are posted now.

RE: Photo of Ann Russell..or Audrey Dosch
Thanks... never heard that... but still would be nice to have a photo of her posted. I have posted several in the past that I didn't own the rights to for sure. I just couldn't find one of Ann Russell.
