|Bio and Links|
I've been drawn to cemeteries for as long as I can remember, having often played among the old tombstones at Oxbow Lakeside Cemetery while growing up in White Lake, Michigan.|
If you would like to leave a flower for my Dad, I'd really appreciate it. Please & thank you! :) December 10, 2013 will be his 29th Angel Day. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him, he was a wonderful person and parent.
My family genealogy names include Burks, Kerr, Ellison, Fitzgerald, Glazier, Vidlicka and Tiscavitch.
It's taken me a while but I have added a page for my sweet Jackpot, who is one in a long line of beloved furbabies who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 1988, I've explored celebrity graves as a hobby and along the way have been just as moved by the neighboring "civilian" headstones that surround and outnumber them. I have been a member of The Hollywood Underground since March 1998.
I run the GrandViewMemorialPark.info website in order to keep the public informed about the ongoing closure/lawsuit story happening there in Glendale, Calif. The cemetery is expected to re-open in late 2013.
Special thanks goes out to fellow graver Linda Mustion, who has worked tirelessly to record over 6,000 memorials to the Grand View FindAGrave page one by one. I'm also a member of the Grand View Volunteers group which added over 30,000 memorials to Grand View's page in 2010. We continue to fulfill requests and manage/transfer memorials to families seeking information on loved ones there.
Adventures in Grave Hunting is my cemetery-related blog. I haven't updated it in a while but the archives of old stories go back several years. I plan to resume updating it when Grand View gets back on its feet and I complete the book about its history. I have a huge backlog of interesting stories just waiting to be told when I have more free time.
My first contribution to Find A Grave was in August 2000, in honor of my grave hunting buddy Denis Svoboda.
I collect vintage photographs of people posing in cemeteries and wonder about the stories behind them. I like to match them to Find A Grave memorials, virtually reuniting loved ones whose pictures somehow ended up for sale here and there. See a sample here.

Many thanks. You are one of few who follow up on these things. If this is going to be a useful tool at all, it should be as complete and correct as possible.
Thanks again for all that you do.

I should have waited to post. I see now that not only is Adolphus at Grand View, but also Samuel and Eliza Ann, his parents. I'm checking out the Grand View website and "like"ing the facebook page. Hopefully I can get out there one Sunday afternoon, although it's a long bus ride.
