Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've walked many graveyards, seeing stones in bad shape, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. This site is a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica by photograph for the future.

If related and can enhance memorial by adding additional information, please request transfer, stating your relationship. No transfers for collection of a particular family name. If you request transfer, be sure you are committed to a lifetime of maintaining the memorial. Sadly, a few of my older transfers are maintained by contributors who no longer respond.

When sending information to add, include verifiable source. Edits will be verified before being accepted. With quick edits, this is still important so unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source. Online trees, such as ancestry's, and family reports/books are not valid sources unless sources are noted.

I no longer add dates of birth calculated from age at death unless a photo of the stone is legible. (I got caught on a couple bad transcriptions which threw off the calculated birthdate).

Links will not be made to memorial in unknown cemeteries.

If you have taken better gravestone photos that what I've posted, please post yours and send a message.

I may try to contact contributors if I question an edit. For those who hide themselves completely by not showing email or allowing comments, my only choice is to decline and hope they resubmit with additional information.

Let me know if you have any questions on my listings - I love a good genealogy search and will try to help if possible!

Happy graving to all!

You are correct - Rootweb.com does not annotate the source of information. The only info that I could find was who submitted the info to Rootsweb.com which was John (H553JohnT@aol.com) with a heading that read "Just my Mom's relatives and their spouses." This is all the info I have - sorry!

Henry and Nancy Keefer
Thank you for adding the newspaper photo to the memorials of Henry and Nancy Keefer. I had come across the article, but had not taken the time to add it to the memorials.

James A Bair
Just to let you know, there are 2 James A Bairs.

Mine was in the wrong cemetery. Then I moved it, and I found out there was an earlier entry. I am going to delete mine, so I tried to connect you to the earlier entry, but you denied it.

Please check the situation out.

Zoe
