Bio and Links
Have been doing genealogy for many years, and photographing tombstones for at least 20. Now that photos are digital, it makes it all the easier to share them.

You are welcome to use my photos in your own genealogy, but please don't turn around and charge anyone for them. They're posted here because I want them free and readily available to all.

Many of the photos I have taken are for people not related to me in any way (other than merely "the family of mankind"). If someone is closely related to you and you would like to manage their memorial, don't hesitate to ask.

McCollum Corrections
I've made the corrections which you suggested, at least the corrections I have the ability to change. The last three corrections about adding Aura and Rebecca McCollum as the parents of three other children I cannot make myself as I do not manage the three children's memorials. But I did submit edits to the managers of those memorials for them to input.

Thanks for the information. And best wishes,
Jim Bellert

RE: Marion Morgan DeSpain Houghton
I found that one also and he seems a lot older than she. Maybe he isn't dead yet. Linda

RE: Marion Houghton
You have her memorial. I found her gravestone and put it on your memorial. I was telling you she had another name thrown in the mix. Go to her memorial and look at the headstone. Mendocino is such lovely country. I enjoyed my stay there and love to walk through graveyards and take photos. Linda

She is in Hillcrest Cemetery, Mendocino. I just sent you another name for her also. Hope it comes in the order which is on her headstone. I put her gravestone on Find A Grave. Linda

Hi Kay,
My great grandparents died Pittsburgh but I haven't been able to find their graves. I did however find two of their childrens in the Allegenhy cemetery.

Verch, Oscar #122539998
Verch, Albert #122539997

My great-grandfather: Verch, Oscar died 1899?
My great-grandmother: Verch, Catharina died 1903

His info said "South side cemetery

Also, my great great grandfather died there as well....don't know where he is buried.

Schweisguth, Michael 1900

Any ideas for me? Thank you, Karen King

RE: William J. Baird Jr./Child Baird
Ok...Per Sherry at the Cave Hill office the grave "William J. Baird Jr. 1901-1901" in "most likely" the son of the owner William J. Baird. She said that the notation on the Cave Hill web site listing is sometimes confusing. So since we can see the headstone and it correlates with the information below,I feel sure that this is the child that is referred to in the notation below. And he is indeed in Grave 5 and his father is in Grave 8.

Copied and pasted from their grave listing:( the date is the date of burial)
WILLIAM J. CHILD OF BAIRD 06/05/1901 SECTION P Lot: 677- Grave: 5

WILLIAM J. BAIRD 08/22/1923 Section P Lot: 677- Grave: 8

I will ask that the other entry be removed since we have been angsting over this. So happy to meet someone who is an ATD person!!

RE: William J. Baird Jr./Child Baird
Hi Kay,
Take a look at the memorial 112217693. This is the child of William James Baird the owner of this lot. I have been out there twice to make sure there wasn't another grave I missed since grave 3 in this lot is not occupied. I am assuming it was for a famous daughter who died in Rhode Island and is buried there with her last husband. So I thought I would make sure about this little one also. I will call Cave Hill tomorrow and ask for further verification and let you know.

I use the Cave Hill ledger, thank goodness they have it, only for verification. I would rather be in the cemeteries and go from there. This is a very large family and I have gotten caught up in them. I started with Emma Dierking, a relative of my husband 3 x removed.

Anyway, I will ask Cathea if she would mind removing her posting...we have been emailing about this crowd too. Let me know what you think...
