Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised and work in northern Virginia. I'm a 66 year old Federal Government employee with 42 years of service. Almost ten years after its inception, I found this site quite by accident when a co-worker asked me to help him at lunch time take a photograph of a headstone that was overgrown with bushes. After that, I was hooked fulfilling photo requests, primarily at nearby Arlington National Cemetery.

Then it occurred to me that this would be a great place (free (thus far)) to document my family tree for all to see, which would be based on the extensive genealogical research that my aunt has been doing for the past 15 to 20 years. This project of linking thousands of memorials is going to take a very long time (if it's at all possible) to complete due to several memorial creators, totally unrelated to my family, who will neither transfer ownership nor respond to SAC edits. That is not to say that all memorial creators are like that. Indeed, most are very gracious and totally responsive, and for that, I whole-heartedly thank them.

If I have a memorial for one of your relatives or even someone else whose memorial you're willing to maintain, I'll gladly transfer ownership upon request. Please make your transfer request via the edit tab on the memorial page, and then SAC. I don't understand the reasoning behind many members wanting to hold on to memorials of folks they have no relation to, genetic or otherwise, when there are people willing to maintain them. Findagrave's guidelines are just that, guidelines. The logic behind the beyond-the-two-generation and non-direct-line transfer request guideline from multiple members is specious at best; those requesters would be related and should be able to work out maintenance issues better than the unrelated memorial creator.

Regarding duplicate memorials, it's never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I that have made, please submit an SAC on the Edit tab of the memorial page and let me know, and provide the number of the original memorial. Thank you.

You have my permission to use any of my photos, as long as you include attribution. (Please don't ask, just use them.)

Re: Roma Buck
Hi David,

I took the photos for Roma & Thomas Buck. They are not in Lemoore Cemetery. They are in Grangeville Cemetery in Armona, which is in Lemoore Cemetery District. I notified the person that has the memorials so he can move them to the correct location.

RE: Fred Theodore McInturff
You are welcome. I was intrigued when I saw this request (McInturff) because I have been able to fulfill other requests for you of McInturffs in Virginia. (This one being in PA).

David, many thanks for transferring the memorials of Joseph Abney Woodson and his wife, Edna Bernd Woodson; who are buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Joseph had served as a 2nd Lieut. in the American Expeditionary Forces in France during World War I. He and his wife lived in Washington; where he worked in the U.S. Treasury Department.

Your incredible work here at Find-a-Grave is invaluable to individuals like me doing family research. ~ with appreciation, George Gaston
