|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family history since 1973. Find A Grave is a great resource. Surnames important to me: Harp, Hoagey, Swavely, Krause, Sheafer, Kline, Keeney, Irvin. Most of our family was in Pennsylvania.|
Oakland Cemetery has over 15,000 known interments. The Bureau County Genealogical Society has maps and caretaker records for this cemetery. The BCGS has very good information on all the cemeteries in the county.
I enjoy the search and challenge of finding the graves. Photo requests get my highest priority. When I go out to fulfill a photo request, I photograph all the markers in the family plot. The rules I follow; "Photograph the grave/gravesite "in-situ", or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's "good deed" just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos...but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site. -AJ" Mar. 10, 2013
When time permits, if a memorial does not exist I create one. I also search for some records to tie the people together and add a bio. I have a backlog of photos to create memorials. Each trip involves multiple cememteries and normally 300 to 500 photos.
If you would like to use my photos, please ask. I have recently experienced some issues with my photos being used inappropriately. I want to share, but I want to know who, what, where, how? the photos will be used. Transfers and edits, please use the EDIT tab.

Thanks for the great photos for the two George photos. What a unique stone.
Thank you for fullfilling my photo requests! May I use the photos in my family tree on ancestry.com? Do you want me to list and ask you every time or is my initial photo request sufficient? I will credit you and list the findagrave memorial.

Thank you so much for your quick response to my request and for your dedication to findagrave project
One more request, do you know who the stone next to them is, and are there stones for; Kenneth D Purdy, Harold Purdy Mary Purdy & Ricky Dean Purdy in the same cem
Thanks again and have a great day
|Lori King||RE: Carl Hamilton|
Please delete the photo of the stone that just says "Carl" from Carl R.H. Hamilton #106861202 and add it to the memorial for his son Carl #110624773.
May I copy your photos of gravestones to my family tree on ancestry.com for the following people:
Carl R.H. Hamilton, #106861202
Caroline Hamilton, #106861328
Mabel Hamilton, #106861395
Also in #106861202 (Carl R.H. Hamilton), is that stone that just says "Carl" next to the big stone with Carl R.H. Hamilton on it? If so, it is for Carl R.H.'s son Carl, who died when he was about 4. Carl, the son, was my grandmother's brother and we put flowers on his grave.
Thanks for noticing the error.
