Bio and Links
I'm a middle school English teacher that spends "spare" time conducting genealogical research. I have spent lots of time in the Forest Hill and Laurel Hill cemeteries, but recently focused most of my efforts at St. Bernard's and St. Joseph's.

Please feel free to use photos that I take for whatever purpose you choose. However, any and all photos must include proper source information in the citation. This allows other researchers to maintain the integrity of the research process.

I often have additional and/or higher quality images, and sometimes additional information, for many of the memorials. Please contact me if interested.

Please note that although I strive to take the best possible quality photos, I occasionally upload pictures that I plan to replace in the future.

I generally create memorials with the same spelling used on the marker, when one exists. Additional information, such as names of parents, also utilize information/spelling as seen on the primary sources.

Several gravestones at Laurel Hill no longer stand where they were first erected. Several factors, including erosion and vandalism, have led to these stones being placed in seemingly random locations. I try to document both where these stones are now, and where they should be.

RE: J. Crowley (114788716)
Ahh, I see what happened. Please keep this memorial you created, just need to change the death year to 1929. Don't find a child Crowley who died, but the Jeremiah Crowley who died in Ireland was prob. Hannah's(1837-1901) husband. Also, Jeremiah Bernard Crowley III is the memorial I created, would you be so kind to also put the picture of the Crowley headstone on his memorial also (138 847 117), as he is the Jeremiah that died in 1940. I know it is so confusing, the only way I would have ever known that is by find the obituaries. thanks so Much! C
