Bio and Links
Bio Photo When you send me enhancements/corrections and you do not provide the source, I will do a search to verify your information. If I cannot find a source, I will then do the correction, but will mention your name as the provider of that information.

Feel free to use my photos for your genealogy research, but please mention that you got the photo from findagrave.
Also, thank you to everyone who follows through and makes the enhancements that I send.

I use a mirror to reflect the sunlight off of the stones lettering. I have a cheap $10.00 mirror that is about 4 feet high. I can hold the mirror in one hand, and take the photo with the other hand.

A complete and searchable listing of the Hale collection is now available on To find it, click on "search" at the top of the screen. Bring down the drop down list, and click on "card catalog". Then, in the search box, type in "Hale". Then click on it, and you can do a name search. Be advised that not all names come up.

My family names are: Kerber, Kerper, Hartsock, Gray, Houck, Carper, Harpster, Gault, all in PA. My extended family names are Miller, Hager, Stamschror, all in Minnesota.

Joseph Lawrence cenotaph (84414430)
Hi. Thanks for all you contribute to findagrave. As your memorial notes, Joseph is buried in Milford Cemetery (see memorial 154780010). You can request that the memorial be marked accordingly as a cenotaph by sending an email to “Please mark memorial 84414430 for Joseph J Lawrence as a cenotaph.” They simply add an indication below the plot info. (see memorial 153471906 as an example of how it appears). Thanks very much for considering my suggestion and for all your work on findagrave with our common cousins in Connecticut. Greenie.

From the findagrave frequently asked questions:

“What is a cenotaph? How do I have a memorial designated as a cenotaph?

A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose remains are buried elsewhere. It can also be the initial marker for a person who has since been interred elsewhere.
To add a cenotaph, create a memorial just like any other. Then email with a link to the memorial and a message to mark it as a cenotaph.”

Thank you very much for the photo of her gravestone. I am very thankful that you took a photo of the whole plot as I was looking for the grave of her daughter, Jennie L. Wheelock and her husband J. Henry Wheelock who I believe is the J.W. stone next to Jennie's. I will do a little more research, but I appreciate you taking the time to do this.

RE: Tuckers in Essex CT
My apology for not replying to your query about Essex Tucker/Tooker date sources. I have been slow learning to check my Find-A-Grave messages.
Please send the names you are interested in.

RE: John & Annie Robinson family
You are wonderful! Thank you so much! I guess if you are able to see a name you will add a new photo for little William Robinson. I really appreciate your conscientious effort to take legible photos. You do a beautiful job!

Maher Photo's
Thanks so much for the photo's of Andrew Maher and his family. He came to America 1846 on a ship with my 5th great grandma Ellen and her future husband at the time. Can't figure out how he is related (maybe uncle) but now with that picture you took it has the town where he was from, which I didn't know.
Thanks again!

RE: Lakeview Cemetery, East Hampton, CT
Thanks, Irma. Looking at the tombstone online, I was unable to read the number. Now I'll have an approximate birth year for Deborah Dunham.
