Bio Photo Copyright 2016 by Audrey Staples - all rights reserved.

The tombstone photographs that I have taken are approved for personal use; any other reason requires prior permission.

My artwork is protected from all copying or replication except for the fair use doctrine.

The vintage photographs that I have added to memorials came from family photo albums.

Please visit my daughter's memorial and leave some virtual flowers (if you wish):

For corrections and additional information to a memorial that I maintain - use the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question; it is very easy to fix dates, places, names, links, and add bios with the new "Edit" tab.

If you are sending information from newspaper obituaries:
"Find A Grave does not discourage the legitimate indexing of the deceased through obituaries or other 3rd party accounts. Newspapers represent a very good source of information as a public record. What we ask is that those who index and memorialize the deceased from newspapers and other 3rd party accounts do so with full respect of copyright, refrain from adding information about living people, and respond generously to the family of the deceased."

Thank you to all the volunteers here on FindAGrave!

Thomas McDermott Clinton IA
Hello Audrey,

I have a couple of questions for you about the McDermotts as well as some information that you may be interested in.

I saw that for Thomas McDermott 1846-1891 in Clinton County IA there are some additional family names, Charles McDermott, Kate Higgins (with a question mark) as well as his spouse.

My mother discovered a family tree chart in her father's papers after he died that lists this family starting with Charles and Kate, and 6 children. It was sent by a Mrs. Mel Foley in Mason City, Iowa. I put this chart in the photo gallery on ancestry.

It looks like my mom's great grandmother, Ann (McDermott) McGinty was a daughter of Charles and Kate.

I'm going to Ireland in about a week and planning on doing some research while I'm there. I see that they came from Castlebar County Mayo. Is that on the gravestone? I can't find anything on ancestry or All I have is this piece of paper which your information validates.

Thanks for whatever information you can give me.

FAG Photo Roberts/Garvin
Hi Audrey, I am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our Civil War veterans who had any ties to Vermont. Abel Roberts and Ebenezer Garvin are two such soldiers. I am asking you if I may use your photo's you posted on their Find A Grave memorial page, to add to the Vermont Civil War site? (" You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration on this.

Very hard to say just how tall she is in the picture. If he is tall as well she could be standing about 6'5".
