Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I enjoy photographing tombstones for FindAGrave. I have even been known to dig stones out of the ground. :)

I do not consider my photographs "copyrighted". I post them for the sole purpose of helping other genealogists in their family research. However, if you post the photos on ancestry or another website, photo credit would be appreciated. :)

My goal is not to impress others by high numbers. I create many memorials just so they are documented, and try to add pertinent information to them. I'm more than willing to transfer these memorials to someone who can take better care of them, as long as they are not my relatives.

Surnames I am researching: Solomon-Haberman (Jennings Co. IN & Saline Co. MO); Stoneking-Livingston-Long (Greene Co. PA & Tyler Co. WV); Wagaman-Turner (Missouri, Kansas, Washington); Pannekoek/Cook-DeVoogd-Waterloo (Kent Co. MI); LePard-Densmore (Kent, Ionia & Barry Co., MI); Kirby-Payne (Howard Co. MO); Riggle-Guist-Ortz (PA & OH).

RE: DeGRAAF & Goudzwaard
THANKS, Kathy. You're GOOD ! I just 'twigged' to the fact this AM, that DeGRAAF was one of those ever changing Dutch surnames, ;-).

Hi Kathy,
Thanks for taking a look for me on Gustav Waller. His name might have just been put down as Gus Waller also. His Death Certificate states that he is there so I can not say that he is not. So even if he does't have a headstone it would be nice to know at least the plot, section and lot and grave number.
Take care and thanks for your help on this, greatly appreciated.

Dear Kathy,

THANKS, Kathy, for the clear, readable pics. Did you notice if there was a family surname monument also ? Bill

Thanks for the photo, too bad it's now a dupe! LOL! At least Sandy can use it. Either way, you deserve the thanks for the photo and the cascade of edits it started. Just cleaning up our little corner of the Find a Grave database!
