Bio and Links
Bio Photo First of all, an explanation of my user name in FindaGrave. I have documented nearly every grave in my county and one day a police officer asked me why he keeps seeing me among the graves in our biggest graveyard. I explained to him what I was doing and he joked that he thought I was a "graverobber". That is how I got my user name.

I've been doing genealogy work for my Harrison, Stubblefield, Ford, Ames, Hill and Record lines (my grandparents) for over 30 years. I discovered Find a Grave during the fall of 2010 and it validated so much of my data, while also pointing out a number of errors if I used the dates on the tombstones.

I appreciate the fact that I'd only have access to this information if others contribute to Find A Grave. This led me to start photographing my local cemeteries and those in other cities (including many foreign cities) when I travel for my job.

Thank you to everyone for your contributions and I hope you find mine useful as well!

Morgan Co. Photo
I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our "Old Soldiers" that had ties to Vermont. George Blake is one such patriot. May I use the photo you contributed to his F.A.G memorial, to post on the Vermont site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)

You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

RE: Robert Burton
Thank you GraveRobber, I deeply appreciate your understanding, and willingness to delete the duplicate. I too have made several in my short time on Find A Grave. Also, thanks for the image, that's a tremendous addition.
Keep up your good work; it's important.
Respectfully, This Old Scarecrow

Lucian Edgar Fowler
Lucian Fowler is buried in the Jasper Cemetery. This memorial was submitted from official Jasper Cemetery records. I have located his headstone and submitted to the memorial. tThe double headstone with his wife in the other cemetery did not have any dates as she died in 1945 and he in 1971, and was buried in the Jasper Cemetery.

Emily Alice Thompson Maiden name Tederick
Dear Grave Robber I see that you have a ton of memorials on Find a Grave and was wondering if you have ever come across a head stone for Emily Alice Thompson. She was born 1864, Nov.28 and died 1899 Oct.9. My cousin Dana Work Kingsboro already has a memorial for her but we don't have a picture of her headstone. We have a huge FB page of some of our relatives of the Samuel F. (Sonnie) Thompson family and a lot of info on there. We just want a picture of her headstone to make it complete. If you could find one it would be very appreciated. We believe she is in the Bethel Cemetery.

Thank You

Lower Yellow Creek Cemetery
I know exactly what you mean Mr Robber! When I try to find relatives, I so want to tell someone to remove theirs but, sometimes you just get the wrong person to say it to, even if you are tactful! I've been out of town, thus the reason for such a delayed response. LOL, I thought there was an Upper and Lower Yellow Creek... I hope you had a great Father's Day, if you are indeed a father. My sisters and I lost ours in 2007.

Blessings!
Keep up the great work!

Josephene W Grant/ Lower Yellow Creek Cemetery
Mr Robber sir,

I have deleted the Memorial I created for Josephene W Grant at your request as a duplicated Memorial. I also thank you for bringing it to my attention... please let me know if there are others. I believe this one (and perhaps others for Yellow Creek) happened because of the duplicated Cemetery.... I thought there were two separate cemeteries. When it did not show up at Lower Yellow Creek, well, a girl can make an honest mistake, right?? LOL! Really, I Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I do not want to create more confusion for those of us searching for family.

Thanks also for paying it forward when you volunteer!! God Bless,
Claire Zahn

Sgt. Lester F. Hughes
Lester Hughes (his mother was Ida Henry Hughes, whose family was one of the pioneer families of Davis, WV) was born and raised in WV, but was drafted into the military during World War I from PA. He was killed 10/31/1918 in France at the Battle of the Argonne Forest and buried there. Years later at the invitation of the U.S. Govt., his mother made the "Mothers' and Widows' Pilgrimage" to France at the expense of the government to visit the grave where her son was buried, and family records state that when she returned, she was more at peace than she had ever been before her journey. I saw that you have a virtual cemetery for World War I veterans, and thought you might want to add Lester Hughes to your virtual cemetery. His Memorial # is 55959973.
Thanks - Gail Henry.
