Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised and work in northern Virginia. I'm a 65 year old Federal Government employee with 42 years of service. Almost ten years after its inception, I found this site quite by accident when a co-worker asked me to help him at lunch time take a photograph of a headstone that was overgrown with bushes. After that, I was hooked fulfilling photo requests, primarily at nearby Arlington National Cemetery.

Then it occurred to me that this would be a great place (free (thus far)) to document my family tree for all to see, which would be based on the extensive genealogical research that my aunt has been doing for the past 15 to 20 years. This project of linking thousands of memorials is going to take a very long time (if it's at all possible) to complete due to several memorial creators, totally unrelated to my family, who will neither transfer ownership nor respond to SAC edits. That is not to say that all memorial creators are like that. Indeed, most are very gracious and totally responsive, and for that, I whole-heartedly thank them.

If I have a memorial for one of your relatives, I'll gladly transfer ownership upon request. If you make your transfer request via SAC edit and after two days I haven't made the transfer, please email me directly or leave a public message here on this page.

You have my permission to use any of my photos, as long as you include attribution. (You don't need to ask.)

William S. Baker Cemetery
Hi David,
This cemetery is in danger and may already be lost. The old fence has been down for years and there has been livestock in the area for quite sometime as well. It is highly probable that the cinder blocks and the field rocks are dislodged by now. Someone should have placed some markers there. Sorry to tell you the bad news.

Re: Thank you for the photo
Dear Mr. McInturff,
I want to thank you for taking the time to go to Arlington National Cemetery to take a photo of my Great Uncle's grave. That was very kind of you. It is very nice to see his grave because I have never been able to go see it. Those are wonderful photos that you took and it means a lot to have them. Thank you again.

RE: Uncooperative members....
Oh my. That is simply terrible. No other way to say it. Just terrible. I don't get it. What pleasure could they possibly get from behaving like that? I do not get it. I hope they sleep well. Makes me mad. But you are right... once the memorials are transferred to Find A Grave you will never get them unless you are a close, direct relative. How sad. Very, very sad.

David Stoddard Dooman (memorial 115965107).
HI David,

I just wanted to publically thank you for the lovely photos you took of David Stoddard Dooman's grave site (memorial 115965107).

Your photos are so clear and crisp, well focused, and high resolution. I appreciate your attention to detail.

That one photo with the snow looks so chilly and cold, but the Christmas wreath looks like it is snuggled up next to him keeping him warm and safe. That is so nice.

Thank you again!


(I sent you a separate email directly to your email address)
