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 not referring to any type of chemical or abrasive. I have never, and would never, use such a thing. I am simply 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.

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, PLEASE 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: RE Catherine Moyer May
I'm trying to find a burial for Ann Rebecca May Delawder. Apparently she died suddenly and left a family of children. They were being raised by family and 3 of them show up as WARDS in a home in McClean County, Illinois in 1900. I'm in touch with the descendant and I have good solid informtion but I'm just looking for proof. Ann Rebecca was married to Henry Delawder and I have a marriage record from 1879, but I'm having trouble finding any information after that. I found a record of her death in Dec 1899, but that is all. She had a daughter named Mary E. Delawder that is buried in Hudson Cemetery, McLean County, Illinois. If I find any more information I'll contact you again. Thanks again, Gary Delawder

You need to report this member. Almost every memorial he has put on is a duplicate and 90 percent of photos he/she has put on are either copied from other Find A Grave members or off of Ancestry. You can report him to: info@findagrave.com.
Make sure to tell them to read the message he left you.
Hope this helps you.

RE: Julia Funkhouser (Cutshall)
You better learn what "Ancestry.com" & "Find-A-Grave.com" is all about. It is about sharing pictures and information. I don't need your permission, you put it up there for all to see, It is now public domain. You delete yours. Maybe you need to find another place to Cry like a little baby.

Julia Funkhouser (Cutshall)
Julia Funkhouser was married to Jacob Gutshall 1832-1891. Some of there children change there last name of "Gutshall" to "Cutshall". The headstone Name is a little hard to see. So if it reads "Cutshall" It should have been "Gutshall".
