Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for nearly twenty years and have a wealth of cemetery photos. I have loved walking through cemeteries and reading the tombstones, especially the very old ones. I thought it was time I shared my photos with others, and I hope that it helps someone find their ancestor! By adding tombstone photos and bios on Findagrave, I have found a great way to share twenty years of research on my Maryland Simpson family.

More recently, I have been challenged to get the very oldest tombstones in a cemetery photographed, while they are still readable, and add them to FAG. Two of my endeavors have included Greenmount Cemetery and Baltimore Cemetery, both in Baltimore City. It has been very rewarding to find those born in the 1700's, who helped shape the City of Baltimore, place them on FAG, and then to hear from one of their descendants who had been looking for them for years!

I am glad to make any corrections and/or additions, and also will transfer memorials of those that are no relation to me. If I have added any memorials of your family member and you do not wish it to be posted on this site, I will be glad to take it down. Also, please ask permission to use any family or tombstone photos, and after getting the permission, please give me credit for the photo. Thank you.

I do not want memorials which I have created to have 4-5 tombstone photos. If your photo is better, I'll take mine down; but, my heart is to create memorials that share photos of the person or their family, in addition to a tombstone photo. I prefer to add obituary information in the bio section, if you know the name of the newspaper and the date.

I don't know anything about her, I took photos of the entire cemetery and created memorials for the those who didn't already have one.

Thank you so much for the picture of Rena's headstone and to think it got here just in time for Memorial weekend.
I have a lot of Cress and Baker family in Virginia and Kentucky, but Im too far away to visit their graves. I appreciate the work you are doing, and I think Rena and other appreciate the fact that you are helping to keep their memory alive!
Have a blessed day.

RE: Emma Phipps
You're welcome. I come across it a lot when adding photos. Sometimes the names get misspelled or the dates wrong and then a duplication happens. Thanks for taking care of it!

RE: Richard H. Douglas photo at Green Mount
Hi Linda, thanks for taking yours down. I was lucky enough to have a great sun angle for my photo.
There was a photo request for someone else in that plot, which is why I took the photos. I added others in that plot also.

Richard H. Douglas photo at Green Mount
Hi Linda,
I just added a wide-angle and a close-up photo for Richard H. Douglas, Memorial# 79279665, that has a much better sun angle (more readable) than your photo, in case you want to delete yours. I also added others in that plot and linked them.
