Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Richmond, Virginia area and have been taking gravestone photos for over 3 years after I discovered what a great tool a digital camera is for that kind of work. I am trying to photograph as many of the cemetries as I can in the area. I also take my camera whenever I travel and and usually end up with photos from some distant cemeteries.

I am the volunteer coordinator for the clean up of East End Cemetery in Richmond. Please contact me if you are interested in helping with the clean up effort.

The vast majority of the gravestone pictures that I've entered are of people I don't know. I've entered them to help others. If you'd like me to fix, add to, and/or delete any of your family members please email me and I'll make the change as quickly as possible. If you would like a copy of the original picture, let me know and I will be glad to email it to you.

If you would like me to transfer an entry to you, please let me know. I will be glad to do that.

Please request transfers and updates/corrections through the Suggest a Correction function so that I make sure I update the correct entry.

Note that much of the CSA related info for burials at Hollywood Cemetery was provided by Scott Hutchinson.

Thank you John for accepting those edits for Lena (and so quickly too). And thanks for creating and maintaining her memorial to begin with, so I could find and connect her with family.

Cynthia Rayburn
Peters -Elizabeth & Lou Fannie
Hello My name is Cindy Rayburn and I am looking into the Peters gravestone in Section Q at Woodland Cemetery in Richmond. Lou Fannie Peters raised and took care of my mother in law many years ago. The dates of birth and death of each of the two sisters on this stone do not match up with what my mother in law knows about these two sisters. Where are the original burial records for Woodland and how can I verify the information on the headstone? I have obtained each of their Death Certificates but this information is also in error. I hope that you can help us. WE are in Richmond this week looking for answers to these questions.
Thank you for your help and for taking on this incredible task. It is greatly appreciated.
With warmest regards and gratitude,
Cindy Rayburn
