Hi, my names EmLynn. I'm a retired Army medic that took up photography as a hobby about 8 years ago.
One of my favorite subjects to shoot are graveyards and cemeteries. I find them beautiful and peaceful. No one should fade from memory just because their headstone does.
If I've added someone that is not my relative I'll happily update or transfer the memorial over to you. I do this to honor the deceased and their families. If there are any misprints or incomplete information, send me a message using the edit button on their memorial and I'll update it.
Feel free to use my photos for genealogy research. There's no need to ask permission.
I borrowed this quote from a F.A.G'er in North Carolina. It really puts things in perspective.
"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended." --Mady Castro
Gravestones fade and disappear. A photograph can last forever.
Thank you Thank you very much for the two gravestone photos you just took at the Camp Nelson National Cemetery.
H. G. Watson from Michigan is not the person who I thought was buried in that particular grave but that's an advantage of having the photo, is that it clarifies that question. I thought it would turn out to be Garrett Watson of the USCT, who died at Camp Nelson.
