Bio and Links
Bio Photo Findagrave has a wonderful feature that allows memorial holders to update many requests at a time, but only if done via the Edit tab --- so please try that before leaving information on the profile page! This feature is a true blessing.


Please keep your requests via the "other" information option to a minimum, as the workload has become unsustainable.

Over zealous senders may find theirs deleted. Hope they switch to messages via flowers. Thank you.

Obits under copyright should be summarized and will not be posted, so please do not send them. In most cases, there is a 72-year or longer time period.

If you wish to download one of my tombstone pictures, you may do so for personal usage and should give proper credit. Under no circumstances should they be added to other sites (such as Ancestry) as if they are your own.

Photographs of individuals require PERMISSION, and if lifted from here without appropriate permission or credit are subject to licensing fees.

Please follow Findagrave guidelines to be within a few generations and a direct descendant. For older ones, please communicate the reason.

As the number of memorials I manage increases, I sometimes elect to transfer without being asked. If you received a transfer and do not wish to manage it, please transfer back.

RE: Philadelphia
I grew up in Phila suburbs and my mother's family was from Phila. I am aware of the Mt Vernon situation. Sad. I agree with you about the need for laws to guarantee access to graves for family, at a minimum.

RE: Thank you for famous bio
I was blown away by her book. When she wrote it people thought of the Everglades as a wasteland. Plus I admire her longevity as a force for change. I have been to the Everglades once, briefly, as a day trip when in Ft. Lauderdale. Would like to go again someday.

Thank you for famous bio
Thank you for your bio of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas. Find A Grave doesn't have nearly enough Famous women recognized. She certainly qualifies.

RE: Cresson Memorials
I am not a relative, but thanks for the thought. What I am doing is photographing this cemetery section by section, answering photo queries in the meantime. I just happened to hit the Cresson section.

I will keep the transferred records until someone else asks me for them. Your mother did exemplary work. Thank you (and her posthumously) for all your hard work.

RE: Mary Starbuck
HI Mary,

Yes we are distant cousins, I am also a descendent of Tristram Coffin and Dionis Stevens. My line migrated to Rowan - Guilford county North Carolina in the mid 1700's along with several other Nantucket families.

Thank You So Much.
