Bio Photo Learn something each day, and teach something each day ...



For me, photographing cemeteries has evolved from an interest in genealogy, nature, and a quest for understanding life. I enjoy following the paths of my ancestors, searching for their final resting places. I also enjoy fulfilling photo requests. Finding graves brings a rush that makes the search worthwhile. Photo volunteer work is just a small way of contributing and giving something back to others. Cemeteries are by nature peaceful places, and I enjoy the peace I find while searching. Yet, my favorite cemeteries are those that are filled with activity, either relatives visiting their loved ones, joggers, or people walking their dogs.

Currently Pekin IL is home base (but I love to travel).

RE: Norman E Treest
I do have a photo of the old memorial page. But, I did not download it. I have requested memorials that have been taken down by the original owner to be reconstructed. If you ask findagrave to help, the old # was 18363552, and Robert was the owner. Not sure of the reason why but I have had to do alot of redos on his work. Let me know if you need me to copy and send the photo.

Thanks,Sue

Norman E Treest
I have a special request. in 2012 I copied a memorial that you had taken a photo of the stone. That memorial has been taken down, and another added. The new memorial #is 137901492. If you keep the photos, could you please repost the grave photo for Norman, who was killed in Vietnam. This would mean so much to me. Thank you for ALL of you fine contributions to this site.

Best Regards,
Sue Rice

William L. Johnson
Hi Greg, My family have looked for generations for William Johnson, my grandfather. He deserted my Grandmother when my mother was about 1 year old and was never seen or heard from again. My mother looked for him all of her life until her death, but could never find him. My son and I took up the research in the past few years and have traced a William Johnson, that may be him to East Peoria, Tazewell County Illinois where he may have died. We do not know if this is our Grandfather. William Johnson's (our Grandfather) father was Marcus Johnson who lived and died in Arkansas, and mother was Susan Clifton. This William Johnson in Miller Cemetery at Spring Valley may be him since the dates fit. Do you know how we can find more information about this person? Thank you for any help you may be able to give. Marie

Dorothy May Arrowood
Hi Greg. I received the following email message. Dorothy's I.D. # is 95477175 in Fondulac Cemetery:

"The photo of this stone does not match the entry for Dorothy May Arrowood -- think it got attached to the wrong entry. Thank you for correcting."

Thanks,
Jeanette

Florida Ellis #82791962
Hi Greg,
Thanks for all your work! Between us we do have a duplicate site for Florida Ellis. I created her site almost a year earlier than you because I was listing my Ellis relatives in this cemetery. If you would add your very nice photo to my site and eliminate your duplicate site we could solve the issue for Find A Grave. Oldest site is the original. I know that it is easy to do duplicates when you work with as many entries as you have very nicely done. I do appreciate all your hard work. I only work with a smaller group of relatives.

Hi - I saw your request to obtain info about the text on this gravestone. I understand from your caption, you have a higher resolution photo. I can take a look at the higher resolution photo to see if I can come up with the text - by doing some photo enhancing and working with the image. I've had some success and would hope to be able to offer you some information from the gravestone image. My email address is posted on my profile page. Would be glad to help out a fellow volunteer . . . . you have added so much to this site and along the way have provided so much valuable information to people now and for many future generations to treasure!!!!!
