Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping people by providing them photos of relatives and friends grave sites. Turning a wish into a fulfilled dream.

Almost all memorials I create are not family members, and I am willing to transfer them to other members.

Do not use the photos I take anywhere else, including within Find A Grave, without permission. I retain the copyright to all of my photos.

"We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives." JFK

Major Accomplishment 2015: Fulfilled over 1,000 photo requests, most of which were at Forest Home Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois, and cleared up 75% of the photo requests at the cemetery.

Major Accomplishment 2014: Fulfilled over 2,222 photo requests with number 2,000 occurring on October 28, 2014. Multiple cemeteries with large backlogs of over 100 photo requests were cleaned up while completing this project.

Major Accomplishment 2013: Added photos for all 433 persons buried in the Chicago Typographical Union Section of Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove, Illinois along with most of the veterans sections, the old age home, Civil War wives, and a large group of graves at the southern end of the cemetery.

RE: Sarah Muscarello
Thanks so much for sending the obit for this cousin. I was having a heck of a time finding the death record! And thanks too for fixing the spelling of her daughter's last name. I did the same thing and transposed a couple of letters.
I have almost all of her kids in place...thank you!

Schaaf, Conrad & Mary Alice
Ace,

May I have your permission to use the photo of Conrad & Mary Alice Schaaf's marker for my Ancestry Tree? They were my Great-Grandparents on my mother's side of the family.

Thank you so much for posting these pictures, I don't make it to Illinois much, and have never seen their grave before. I appreciate the time and effort it took to get the pictures.

RE: Warren Crandall, 38799746, at Crandall Cemetery
Hi, again. I forgot to say that I found Warren living with the Erastus Rice family in Warren County, Illinois, in 1850. I'm not sure if they are his relatives, but his obit mentions a recording he made in 1903 or so, about his life, in which he states that he went back to Illinois after buying land in Leroy, KS, and brought back the Rice family to Kansas. Could Sarah M Rice be his sister?

RE: Warren Crandall, 38799746, at Crandall Cemetery
Hi, Ace. I did a little more digging today, because I knew next to nothing about Warren. He was the husband of one of my cousins, Isabella Jones, and I think that's why I sort of "inherited" the memorials for the family. I found an obituary transcribed on the "Crandall Family Tree" on ancestry.com. It is quite informative. If you can't access it, send me your email address, and I will forward it to you. The same tree gives his parents' names as Joseph Crandall, Sr (d abt 1835) and Deborah Willcox (no dates).
Regards, Diane
