|Bio and Links|
In the 60's I started recording old cemetery inscriptions in my area (Adirondack foothills, Saratoga County, NY). I recorded several hundred (no photos) from small abandoned cemeteries before life got in the way. |
In 2001 I started to revisit some of the cemeteries I had copied in the 60's and was upset to see that many of the stones are now unreadable or gone! It has become my passion to record and photograph as many of the "out of use" cemeteries as I can. It has been quite a challenge to find them, and unfortunatly some will never be found.
I wish to give credit where it is due. Most of the cemeteries I physically visit and record. Where info is missing I rely on C. Durkee's 1878 Cemetery Report and addendums. I also use Saratoga County Genweb site as reference for stones erected after the Durkee report. They are doing a great job to preserve the cemeteries of Saratoga County, NY.

Gary, Thank You So Very Much for All the photos of my Great Grandparent's and Great Aunt's & Uncle's headstones you were able to capture out at Corinth Rural Cemetery. I was starting to think nobody ever went out there! I really do appreciate it, the memorials just don't seem complete without the headstone photos, I was excited to see that they all were there (the stones) Thanks Again, and if you ever need anything in Northern California, just let me know!

I really appreciate your adding the information I sent you on Erwin & Etna King, and Lucinda Manning. And that you referenced me using my Find A Grave number. Maybe someone will contact me someday. Many thanks, Mary Casey

I wanted to thank you for finding the grave of Caroline Amanda (Stiles) Howland, she was a sister to my great-great grandmother and finding this picture helps confirm a little bit more of my family history. Have a great day.

Thank you so, so much for the photo of the gravestone of my great grandfather. I don't think I'll ever be able to go to that cemetery myself, so this photo means a lot.
