Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking pictures of cemeteries for 30+ years. I love the history and beauty of old cemeteries. It bothers me to see old cemeteries forgotten about and not being taken care of. Any stones I find that I can prop up and clean off, I will do. By "clean off," I am referring to taking a soft cloth or a stick or my hands to brush off mud, grass, mold if possible, and yes, even cow poop occasionally, in order to make the stone legible in the picture.

I get a lot of photo requests that I can't fulfill - I wish I had more time - but I prefer to do western Rockingham County, Virginia/Mathias, West Virginia. I can go as far north as Broadway/Timberville or south to Dayton/Bridgewater. I prefer not to do eastern Rockingham or Augusta County. I have gotten several requests for Pendleton County, West Virginia, which is about 40+ miles from me. I don't know if I can ever get out that way. I can also get a few in the Reston/Herndon area, since I grew up there and am there on the weekends.

Please use the edit link on the upper right corner of a memorial if you would like me to make additions, corrections, or add links, and I will do so. I will be happy to make reasonable transfers. I hope people do the same for me! I have noticed some people are very good about making corrections or adding information right away, and others seem not to do it all.

Any pictures I take of cemeteries and stones, you are welcome to use for personal use. This does not mean you can create a duplicate memorial and copy my pictures onto it, which is against FAG rules. ANY FAMILY PICTURES OF GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS, DO NOT USE. THESE ARE MY PERSONAL PICTURES AND I OWN THE ORIGINALS.

Helpful tip if anyone needs lots of pics from around here - I know there is a limit of 20 requests per week, so if you need more than that, please put the extra names in the Note section of your request for each cemetery - this will really help the photo volunteers and decrease the amount of repeat trips out to the same cemetery.

RE: Simon Peter Rexrode
Yes, that fits perfectly now. Thank you.
If you want to link him to his parents they are #10451362 and #10451574. The family moved from VA to Indiana and then on west. They are scattered from Ind. to Kansas and Texas.

Simon Peter Rexrode
Find A Grave#92595164

Are you sure you have read Simon's stone correctly? According to the information I have, he was the son of Henry and Mary (Burkholder) Rexrode, born in 1851 and died in 1852. Henry and Mary were married in 1846 and their first child was born in 1847. Things don't match. Or is this someone else?

Just noticed the headstone photos you posted Jun 2015 of Joseph and Mary Cromer. Great photos by the way. Curious if you figured out why Swank could not locate in 1967. Were they covered up?
