Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in genealogy goes back to the days where information had to be gleaned from dusty books found in the corners of libraries. The Internet has greatly expanded my searching capabilities.

The family names that I am primarily interested in are Sanders, Kirkpatrick, Hunt, Froman, Gist, Taylor, Combs, McPherson, Adams & Haddock.

Feel free to use headstone or personal pictures that I've posted on memorials -- no royalties required. If you have any additional information that you would like added to memorials I manage, let me know. You will be cited as the source.

I'm not interested in "collecting memorials." I take pictures and create memorials to make sure that everyone in my corner of the world is remembered in some small way. I'm happy to transfer memorials to relatives/friends who want to manage them, so please ask if I've created a memorial for someone you'd like to take care of. Your relationship to them isn't an important factor to me.


Greenwood Cemetery (Renton) in progress. I took a sample batch of a thousand or so photos and discovered many, many undocumented memorials so I'm attacking it systematically. If I've created a memorial, I have the photo. If you need it sooner rather than later, just send me an edit and I will attach it immediately. Thanks for your patience.


Completed Cemetery Projects:
-- Cedar Lawns (Redmond)
-- Kirkland Cemetery (Many unmarked graves in this cemetery. Many stones very deteriorated.)
-- Redmond Community Cemetery
-- Sunset Hills (Bellevue)
-- Hillside (Issaquah)
-- Upper Hillside (Issaquah)

Note re Kirkland Cemetery: This is a heavily treed cemetery and many of the stones are covered in moss. If there is a particular stone that you would like re-photographed, feel free to let me know and I will see what I can do to clean up the stone.

Although I have marked a cemetery as done, new graves have most likely been added and I may have missed a few, despite my best efforts to be organized. If you need a photo, just ask and I'll do my best.

Mary, thanks for checking the cemetery for me. The Clawson family is buried there, I think that they haven't interred her as of now.

You are right, they are the parents of the Richard that you photographed for me. I'm not a close relative, though, so if you want to keep the parents it's OK with me. I'm just very pleased that you found them.

Mary, I like your idea of putting the originator of edits on your memorials. Eliminates future issues. I will remember that. Thanks, Frances Cope

Hi Mary,
Wanted to thank you for recording my parents (Marylyn and Audrey Jones) in Find a Grave. I wrote their obituaries and am an avid genealogist myself.
