Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the family genealogist. Names I am researching:
Van Meter from NJ>OH>MO
Binkley from IN>IL>NE>CO
Adams from MA>IL>CO
Stauch from Prussia>IA>CA & WA
Scott from England>CA & WA

When I transcribe the headstones for Find A Grave, occasionally they are hard to read or I simply make a mistake. Please let me know if I have made an error & I will correct it!

Also, if you would like the memorial transferred to you, I'd be happy to do that also. Many of the memorials were taken on vacation and they are not related to my family at all, so I'd love for you to maintain them & add personal information, including obits, photos and bios!

Hi Karen - Could you please research the location of the marker you photographed and originally posted and add the grave location information? It's not listed on the Forest Lawn website, and would be very helpful when it's time to put flags on the veterans markers. Usually, you can find the marker info on the little ceramic circle somewhere on the row. If you tell me which section, I can refer you to a map of the cemetery.

I see you placed a duplicate memorial for Clay Griffin. He was already listed at the time you placed your memorial. I found the picture of his memorial on Can you please remove your duplicate memorial #37598837. Also if you wand I can remove the picture you took and you can add it back. I thank you very much in advance.

Hi Karen,
Requesting permission to use James' cemetery marker in our personal tree. He is Bruce's cousin and the photo will make a great addition to our tree.
