|Bio and Links|
Long-time instructor of writing and women's studies at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH. I am an addictive reader, am interested in geneaology, folk music and sacred harp, and am an Anglican, guitar player, singer, guardian of two rescue dogs and mother of a beautiful adult son.|
I enjoy walking in cemeteries and have made it a personal project to photograph and record the headstones of military personnel in addition to requests in local cemeteries, in honor of their service and the service of my father, stepfather, and uncles in World War II and Korea, friends from Viet Nam, and students from the Gulf Wars and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. If any of these service persons or others I have added are family members and/or you wish to manage their memorials, just let me know. I am happy to transfer.
Anyone who wants to use my photos in their family tree, on Findagrave, or any other site may do so without my permission.
I am primarily a volunteer photographer and often am unrelated to the people whose memorials I make, so I am happy to transfer. I am doing this work to honor what would otherwise be lost lives, to make visible what has been forgotten.
I would very much appreciate tributes of love to the memorial of a baby whose heartbreaking obituary I found in a newspaper from 1926, and another from a death record:
Baby John Doe: 136921616
and to a young girl who had a hard life and a brief stay in this world: Rene Holley 145768090
Heartfelt thanks to all those who have already added notes--you mean more than I can say

Dr. Cynthia Mahaffey:
Thank you for taking the photo of my Aunt and telling me that you placed it on Find A Grave.
You have blessed me and so many others by your gift to us.
Thank you Pat
Thank you again, Cynthia, for your transfers. I'm sure they're glad to be one big family.

Yes, Cynthia, I would like those you have transferred to me.

|Jim Glidewell||RE: Walter Ellis|
There was no site number listed for for Walter Ellis and we need that to find him. I looked it up on the National Grave Search and then updated his information.
If you follow the link for Dayton National Cemetery and then to their web page there is a link called "Nationwide Grave Locator" and you can search any memorial in the country.
|Lacey Marshall||RE: DeTray photos|
You are so very welcome! :)
|A Horan||Catherine & John Kelly at ANC|
Last May, you requested a photo of the stone for Catherine Kelly at Arlington National. Her stone is now in place -- I have posted a couple of photos on her and her husband's new stone. I've also requested that the photos of their old stone be removed.
Thank you for your patience!
