Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please note I have photographed many cemeteries en mass. This involved many, many hours and thousands of memorials. I tried to clean the headstones to at least be readable, but with all the mud, rain, leaves, encountered with on ground level headstones, I did not clean each memorial completely off as I would when fulfilling an actual photo request. Also late nights trying to get a section finished up as the sun set led to a few memorials where the shots are pretty dark and as a result, lots of photos aren't the greatest quality. So, whole point being -- I won't be offended if people want to request "prettier" pictures of their loved ones headstones!

Feel free to use my photos for any genealogical purposes. :)

I just want to say thank for the transfer. As mentioned previously, this was a memorial I had been seeking for awhile.

RE: Burials for William and Josephine Tompkins and Mattie Cole
Jessica, I wish I had been able to get more, but sometimes we have to accept what is. I am in the process of working on William and Josephine's burial sites now. Should get them on there tonight or tomorrow.
You are most welcome and if there is anything else you are wondering about, please let me know. I still have many photos and documents on the Tompkins that I am weeding through and need to get into my tree.
Please don't worry about uploading photos from my tree to wherever you want to put them. I am always most willing to share anything I have on my tree.
Also, my tree is now private and if you wish to be invited, please let me know. I made it private because it is progressing along really fast and there are comments I have added that I just thought making it private would be the best thing. But you are most welcome to view and download anything on my tree that you wish, just let me know and I will send you an invitation. Sincerely, Mary

Burials for William and Josephine Tompkins and Mattie Cole
I visited the Vevay Cemetery and talked to the brothers at the Haskell and Morrison funeral home. William and Josephine Tompkins are buried in the IOOF Section 9, Lot 184. They had small metal markers and they have been destroyed over time.
Mattie and Milton R Cole are buried in Section 5, Lot 386 in the back next to the fence. Their markers have been destroyed over time also.
I have maps that I have marked the areas and I have photos of the areas where they are, but no markers are there.
I also have written this information and signed it. Please let me know if you want the information sent to you, posted on findagrave or if you want the information. I will be putting it in my tree on each person involved.

Thank you also, very much, for the transfer of Ida's husband, James Downey. I have updated their pages and will continue to do so as I find new information. Thanks.

Thank you
Thank you so much for the transfer of Ida Downey.

I have updated her memorial. I will continue to add to it. This is much easier for me, than to try to do this through another person. Again I am very grateful. Thank you so much.
