|Bio and Links|
I am 70 years old and retired for 9+ years. I started working on photographing the grave markers of my family members, mostly in the Beechwoods Cemetery, Beechwoods, Pennsylvania. I live in Dayton Ohio, but have a camp just south of DuBois, PA. My niece Carol Laughlin and I have managed to photograph every grave marker in this cemetery as of the spring of 2008.|
Since then, I have moved on to do several other smaller cemeteries located closer to my cabin. They would be Wood, Greenville & Chestnut Grove Cemeteries. I have now completed all three of these as of October 2007. I have also finished another (June 2008) named St Bonaventure located near Irishtown, Clearfield Co., PA.
On a recent trip to Alaska, I took photos of the first cemetery that I saw, it was in Seward, Alaska. I now have those listed on Findagrave. I was not able to take all of them, but managed 32. Also in the winter of 2012, I photographed all of the markers in a cemetery in Rayville, Louisiana while there on a hunting trip.
October 2013 update: I have just finished taking photos at St Catherines Cemetery in DuBois, PA & the Medway Cemetery in Ohio, Between those two, I have taken nearly 7000 photos. I have acquired the records for St Catherines in DuBois and for the past month I have been adding memorials. There were 318 when I started, and the records indicate over 3100 burials. Medway contains over 4,000 burials.It will be a while before I get all the memorials uploaded, then I will start editing the photos. I should have them done by spring of 2014.
I have finished Dille Cemetery, Ohio: Mt Pleasant Cemetery, Penfield, PA (Added cemetery and 116 memorials): Soldier Hill & Holy Trinity, Sykesville, PA: Conway Cemetery(9 new memorials) and Bundy in Sabula, PA; (Added 49 new names and markers in Bundy): Sandy Valley, Reynoldsville, PA. About 1800 photos taken so it will be some time before they are ready to upload!
If you are interested in a CD of the photos I have taken at any of my chosen cemeteries, they are available at minimal cost. I have the originals from Beechwoods on 8 discs, and the cropped and sized images on 2 discs. For the other cemeteries, the photos are available on one CD. The cost would be $2.00 per CD plus postage. Feel free to contact me via this website. Ed

Thank you for letting me know that I had 1981 for Oliver's death date instead of 1918. I fixed him!

Do you perhaps have his surname spelled incorrectly, or is it abbreviated on the marker?
Thank you so much for finding that for me. I have made the correction. I must have been really tired that day! :)
My name is John Alburg,of Brockway and I am asking about memorial # 22113496 John G Alburg this is my grandfather and if you would like you can transfer it to me. And also I was wondering if you had a photo you could post for my dads memorial its # 13485131 John M Alburg. Thank You
