Bio and Links
Bio Photo Been doing genealogy since 2000. Been photographing tombstones since 2002.

If you take a picture of a marker you should check the plot for other members of that family. Normally all members of a plot are family members even it they may have different surnames

To me the plot is more important then the one grave. If you find more family in the plot and want credit for them tell me and I will add the memorials and request pictures.

If I take a marker I will always check the area for more members of the family or take the others in the plot.

If you want a high-resolution image I keep the photo about a month or so. Or if local I can get them again.

Please note: Only speaking for myself and the photos that I take. Findagrave does have rules you should be aware of regarding copy or using photographs posted. Copywrite laws, etc. Please do not take this as permission for all photos at findagrave.

I am giving my permission for you to use my photos in any way you see fit for your family. To me they are just a rock with letters on them.

Request for Family Links / Transfers

I have been getting a number of weird requests in the last few months.

1. I double check all requests.
My checks many times add family links to the memorials.

2. If you tell me they are your relatives. I must assume they are my relatives too. I have the better claim. Tell me how your related!

On they have "U.S., Burial Registers, Military Posts and National Cemeteries, 1862-1960", don't trust the index, LOOK at the IMAGE!

RE: James Scott -- Wood National
By the way, I noticed the photo you added to his wife Stellas memorial page. Thank you for that as well.

RE: James Scott -- Wood National
I can't thank you enough! It's quite emotional. I was with my father (James' brother) when James called and told him he had cancer. He never told us how bad it was, only to say he willed his body to science. At that time we believe James' wife Stella was in a nursing home. We were devastated to hear a few months later that he died. Stella died a few months later. They lived in CA and we live in NY. All these years since he died in 1998, I've lived with great sadness in my heart knowing he died alone, wishing we could have been there, and not knowing what became of him.
I've been working on my family tree in Ancestry and found his Find a Grave memorial just a couple of months ago. Wasn't sure if it was him because the picture of the stone had a total different name on it. I did some more searching and with the Soc. Sec. indexes and the Veterans Gravesites index, I knew for sure. Now, with the picture of his grave stone you took for me, after 17 years we finally have closure!!
With LOTS of hugs and kisses, I thank you!

RE: Jonathan Scott Haessly
Phillip, I discovered at one time I got a copy of that area. A few names have M by the names. I must have tried but gave up but that was a couple of years ago. One of those things I put aside and hadn't gotten back to until now. Anyways, if you email me I could send it to you.

Hey Phillip,

I know you know these areas so well so I wanted to ask you about an infants grave. I just added a page for this baby born Nov 8, 1934 and died Jan 3,1935.
I didn't make a photo request yet, but he is buried at Holy Cross, Block 17, Section A, Row 9, Grave 128.

I believe that there is no marker. Is this an area that you can pinpoint enough to get a wide shot? I know some areas are just so barren. Let me know if you think you can get a photo. I can add a request if need be. His memorial number is #148361930.

RE: Hold on to this conflict for me.
Hold on to this conflict for me.
Some one is sending corrections to John R. Ethridge Find A Grave Memorial# 61748421 which conflicts with what you have sent me.

Joel Etheridge
(1832 - 1862)
Find A Grave Memorial# 58094527

Emily Bowen Etheridge
(1834 - 1853)
Find A Grave Memorial# 144690246

I have the death certificate of John Richard Etheridge. He was the son of Joel Etheridge and Emily Rice. He was born Dec. 6th 1861 and died Feb. 19, 1934.

Emily Rice was the daughter of Benjamin and Anna Rice

I did not see any thing that needed correcting. I was trying to be helpful by sending you more information you might be able to use. Bobby

RE: Ternes
Some of the raised letters in Paulina's name at this point in time are hard to read, but are easily distinguishable by touch.
