Bio and Links
Bio Photo We discovered Find a Grave while doing research on our family trees. From there has grown an interest in recording cemeteries for others to use. We are willing to transfer the memorials of people who are not related to us, to anyone who has a connection with the person, whether within guidelines or not. Don't hesitate to ask.

Feel free to use our photos, they are put here so people can use them. Proper credit is not only appreciated but the right thing to do.

Our family tree includes the following surnames, Read, Clark, Nelson, Fletcher, Forshee, Shirley, Diederich, and Bohl.

We live in Palm Beach county, Florida. Currently we are focused on Pinecrest cemetery in Lake Worth. If you would like a different photo on a memorial we created in Pinecrest, let us know. Less time is spent on photos taken while mowing the rows to document the cemetery, than is spent on photos to fulfill specific requests. We can go back and do a request quality photo for a memorial you are interested in if you would like.

"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness, the tender mercies of its people, their loyalty to high ideals, and their regard for the laws of the land."- Eighteenth-century British statesman William Gladstone

I believe you also have a picture of my Dad's grave too

Ah, I just read the note on your photo. Sorry I hadn't noticed it sooner! This information leaves this Carl in the running for "my" Carl.

Thank you very much for the photo and information!

I'm a bit confused by the photo of the headstone for Carl Beard that you posted. There are two headstones in the photo - one for a Caroline Funk and one for a William Rhine. I don't see anything for Carl. Is that the place he is suppose to be buried but he has no headstone?

RE: Picture of memorial
Dan & Karen,

Thank you for your help in getting me the picture of my grandmother's memorial marker and its location. I have put it on her profile page of WikiTree and now feel like it is complete. It was the search for where she was buried that began my journey into family research, which will continue, but having "closure" with her feels good.

Thank you,

Barb Butler
