My family thinks I'm a little crazy with this hobby of photographing headstones in cemeteries. In fact, my youngest son said, "They should create cemeteries for living people!" THAT would be interesting! I really do this because I hope to connect people with their ancestors or create memorials online for family members who can't travel to the cemeteries.
You have my permission to use these photographs in your family research and/or online trees. You do not have to ask me first. I really do appreciate the thank you comments and I am glad to help however I can.
“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.” - David Eagleman
RE: Robert Fletcher So glad to have heard from you. I fully understand the problems associated with getting to some of the graveyards which are not still in a public setting. I was recently to one which was on the only drive from the main road but the drive was the "very" private property of a group which had posted signs. I had chosen a Sunday morning, so was in less risk of bringing concern. The graveyard was actually locked up, so entering would have been difficult at best. Thanks for all your work in helping others find their ancestors.....
Some changes Hello Donna, My name is MaryAnn and working on my tree I spend many hour. I have over 5400 names from my husbands side and mine. I so appreciate the work that you do and it has been a great help to me. I thought I'd let you know of a change to be made if you can do it. On Find A Grave #115616826 the name Anna Grega Kosinski dates listed May 26, 1907 and d.January 8, 1986. SSDI has 5/27/1907 and d. 2/14/1988. The headstone has 1907 - 1988. If you need it I added the information for her husband and his Find A Grave #158349967 the name is Andrew James Kosinski. Thank you for all your help and for all the effort you put into it. MaryAnn
Just wanted to point out a duplicate memorial you made, #105308394 - "J.S. Mauk". It's a duplicate of #92190042 for Emma Boyd Mauk (wife of J.S. Mauk). What's kind of funny is that you took the current header photo for Emma Boyd Mauk - which is the same stone in different light, making it easier to read. Ha! :) Thanks for your work in photographing the Mauk stones, it's muchly appreciated :)
