I enjoy helping people by providing them photos of relatives and friends grave sites. Turning a wish into a fulfilled dream.|
Almost all memorials I create are not family members, and I am willing to transfer them to other members.
Do not use the photos I take anywhere else, including within Find A Grave, without permission. I retain the copyright to all of my photos.

Major Accomplishment 2015: Fulfilled over 1,000 photo requests, most of which were at Forest Home Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois, and cleared up 75% of the photo requests at the cemetery.
Major Accomplishment 2014: Fulfilled over 2,222 photo requests with number 2,000 occurring on October 28, 2014. Multiple cemeteries with large backlogs of over 100 photo requests were cleaned up while completing this project.
Major Accomplishment 2013: Added photos for all 433 persons buried in the Chicago Typographical Union Section of Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove, Illinois along with most of the veterans sections, the old age home, Civil War wives, and a large group of graves at the southern end of the cemetery.

|longaberger||RE: Clarence Laun at Mount Hope Cemetery|
I will add them this weekend, sorry been busy and haven't been on here lately
|Have A Heart||RE: Harlan H. Hull|
Sorry. I most like want you to link him to his mother, Susannah L Cook, memorial # 69280475. There is a Jno Hull with memorial # 5193975, but the memorial states he was a solider of War of 1812. John went on to marry a Catherine J Clearwater on 3 Mar 1867 in Marion County, Iowa. Her parents were Levi Clearwater & Elizabeth Dunivan. I would assume that John is in an unmarked grave either in the cemetery with his first wife, Susannah or Catherine at Winterset City Cemetery (memorial #13087574)
|Donna Roginski||RE: Forest Home Cemetery photo|
That would be wonderful! How do you get access to their records? They wanted $25 per request and wouldn't tell me up front if there was even any information. They wouldn't let me look at the record, myself. With no headstone and no death certificate that I can find, all I have is the Chicago Trib death notice dated 9 Feb., 1946 that says she was formerly of 855 Grace St. I found the death certificates for the others buried with her - husband Joseph Prince, son Earl, sister Dell Staffen and sister Ada Baker. firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you so much for adding the cemetery sign photo to the memorials of Alice Baker Prince and her family (and a very beautiful photo it is, too). Since her son, Earl W Prince, is the only one in the family plot who has a tombstone, it is nice that they have the cemetery photo attached to their memorials. Thank you for all the work you do in FindAGrave.

She was the wife of my 2nd cousin 4x removed. May I use her gravestone photo in my Family Tree? I will gladly give you credit. Thank you very much, Terry

|K. Medved||RE: Nash Family Photos|
No you don't need to put in a photo request. I live really close to the cemetery and go by it at least one a day. I needed water to clean the head stone off and the water I had was frozen. I will probably get the picture today. I will also check to see if there are other Nash's in that section. I had remembered seeing a larger stone with Nash on it and so I thought that was where your Nash headstones were, but it wasn't. And I think those Nashes haven't passed yet. It's in that same section (13) but that is a very large section, and they are aways away from your Nash family. Kay
|Patrick||Floda May Ohl Raybuck|
A couple questions re: your Find A Grave Memorial# 136147845. Floda was my great grandmother's (Nora Pearl Ohl) sister.
1) How did you come to associate her grave site as being at Wildwood Cemetery? Are you familiar with Find A Grave Memorial# 120659501 that has her buried Emerickville Lutheran Cemetery?
2) How did you come across her marriage and family information? Are you a descendant?
I look forward to hearing from you!!

|Mary Allison Yonan||Samuel / Slewo Desho|
Thank you for adding the gravestone for Samuel / Slewo Desho which is located in Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove, IL. I know that this is December and is winter in the Chicago area. When the weather improves, I would be very grateful if you would check the Elmwood Cemetery records to see if Samuel's wife, Elizabeth / Elshwa Desho is also buried in the same cemetery. Thank you again.
Thank you so very much for the photos of Edith Josephine Purdy Jamieson's gravesite. Memorial# 46752737.
