Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my names Michelle. I'm a retired Army medic that took up photography as a hobby about 5 years ago.

One of my favorite subjects to shoot are graveyards and cemeteries. I find them beautiful and peaceful. No one's memory should fade just because their headstone does.

I'm willing and happy to do photography in the Lexington, KY region. Don't fail to ask because you think it may be too far.

If I've added someone that is not my relative I'll happily update or transfer the memorial over to you. I do this to honor the deceased and their families. If there are any misprints or incomplete information, send me a message from their memorial and I'll update it.

Feel free to use my photos for your research, family trees and such. There's no need to ask permission.

I borrowed this quote from a F.A.G'er in North Carolina. It really puts things in perspective.

"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended." --Mady Castro

Gravestones fade and disappear. A photograph can last forever.

Everyone deserves a flower¸.•*` Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ

Thank you so much for trying!! I'm sorry you spent your time to help me out just to be told no:(
I can't figure our why anyone who has property that could be historical or meaningful to someone else would refuse to even allow you there! Thank you so much for your help!! ;)

Photos at Gaston Memorial Park

Just to let you know you will have to call the office to get location. There are over 25,000 Grave there and they will not give location to me. The number is 704 865 9521. Get the location and either add it to the request or send it to me and I will get them for you.

I forgot to mention that I am sorry you were sick this past year. I hope you are much better now and able to continue doing what you love to do.

RE: The Bournes
Yeah there is a big long (and unsourced) line for this family online but I have only been able to verify up to William Bourne; his will naming all of his children is in the Jessamine Co KY probate books. Never seen the evidence that he married a cousin either.

It looks like William's grave was damaged since that earlier pic? I don't see a death year on it anymore. There were no signs of pieces of it nearby?

Thanks again for your help. I considered doing this one myself but no one knew exactly where it was.

Hi EmLynn
Thank you so very much for retaking the photos of Catherine and William's gravestones. I know we corresponded some time back and I am so pleased to see the new pictures. Thank you for cleaning and raising up the stones. The lady that took the first pictures for me did me a huge favor as have you. Her father was terminally ill and she was just running out there to get the pictures before she had to leave town to take care of him. I love the ones you took. Would it be at all possible to get a copy of the pictures. I don't do well getting them off of the findagrave site. Thanks for the update on the dates. It is interesting that Catherine's name is spelled with an a instead of an e. i changed it but I am not sure of the correct spelling. All of the documents state that it is correct with an e but who knows. Once again thanks.Is the old house torn down now? I sure would like to know what Bourne family lived in it..

The Bournes
Thanks for getting a chance to take pictures of the Bourne graves I asked about awhile back.

I guess I might be interested in any further details you had on them, particularly what you believe their inscriptions are. Were there any others at the site?
