Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a gravestone conservator, owning a small business that deals will the restoration and cleaning of historic gravestones and take great pride in fixing every single stone we take on. I am also a local history maniac, who has a hobby (some may call it an obsession) of finding and visiting old cemeteries, especially small, rural plots. If I have a memorial of someone that is in your family or very close to you, I would be more than happy to transfer it to you. Also, if you have any extra information for any memorial I have, please feel free to send me an email. I will update the memorial very quickly. (I secretly love getting added information or corrections to the memorials I upload.)

RE:Infant death in St Peters Churchyard, Bainbridge.

Hi Kurt,
This was my grandmother's sister and we had a stone put on it in 1987. According to your Find A Grave post, it sounds like there was a problem? I live out of state, so I haven't been back to check it! Is it possible for you to take a look if you are ever in that graveyard? The site it in the back right kind of in the center. I remember a BIG tree on the plot and the caretaker's hut being close. Thank you in advance for taking time to read this! Kathy

Hi Kurt. This one looks a dup of Melissa Gifford 133095986, both having the same death date. My guess is that "Willis" is a mis-transcription of "Melissa". Thanks.

GPS coordinates for two cemeteries
Hi Kurt. I found a couple interesting cemeteries that you transcribed, and now I'm trying to figure out where they are.

FYI, you can add GPS coordinates to Find A Grave by replying to the thread "Official: Cemetery Fix/Updates/Corrections".

You could either upload them yourself or send them to me and I'll upload them. I'm just hoping you can tell me where they are. Many thanks for all your work.

RE: Ella Higley
I very much appreciate the update on Ella (Watson) Higley's unmarked grave...Did you happen to get the grave location? Who you know any information on the death of her husband George? I believe he was born in May 1857? Did George married before, to a wife that had children. what was the names of any children George had? Thanks

?headstone is missing

I have been looking for my grandfather whom I think was
buried with my grandmother her name was Blanche
Mae Armstrong 1882-1958 his name was Charles
Armstrong 1873 I have no date of death or any idea
where to look I could use any suggestion to find them both
together of separate.
If you could be of any help it will be appreciated.
It can not be suggested by me on Find A Grave.
I am new to this and find out they take anything
anyone puts in the computer as fact. I will have to go
back and take most of it out. I thought save means
save to file to I could go back and review things.
My mothers maiden name was Dorita Armstrong 1906-1955
Thank You:
