Bio and Links
Bio Photo Live in Maryland; summer in the Adirondacks. Write historical articles for Weekly Adirondack in Old Forge and appear on , am interested in Adirondack and Fulton Chain historical figures, of whom many are in Oneida and Lewis Counties and other NY cemeteries, many now inactive, often in obscure locations.

I work from my cemetery photos, then linking the graves through trees, and newspaper sites such as and I often contact ancestry trees to let them know I've found their family members, especially if I've used their trees to confirm or help link family members on findagrave.

There is always a chance for errors and happy finger typos. So please do not hesitate to let me know if you find something needing correcting, have more family connections or question the links I've made, using the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

If you find I've added a photo where one was already present, I often take photos to get the whole stone and a closeup for clarity or to get the family group of stones. If I find a photo of part of a stone and I have the entire stone , if the back of stone is shown without the front, I will add my own to the benefit of the memorial and the deceased's family who may not be able to go to that location.

In like manner, if someone has a better, clearer photo than mine, please add it and don't hesitate to ask me to remove mine. Please contact me and I will be glad to do so for this any other reason.

I don't add to existing photos to replicate what is there or to add to my statistics. If you believe mine repeats what you've added without additional benefit, please ask me to remove mine and I will do so promptly.

Rather than add memorials from listings, I add memorials from walking the cemetery and taking photos.

Anything I add to findagrave is intended to be used by you.

My profile photo was taken at a mock cemetery at Sturbridge Village.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the transfers! Our cousin is "picking up her teeth, after shoving in her eyeballs". We had been at a brick wall for years. Thank you for your contributions to FindaGrave!

RE: marcel adelle simonet
I found the Simonet's and added them. I had to take them on an angle to get them to show up. Can you look at these memorials: Michael J Turck #73620893 and Michael Turck Jr #73620894 for me please? It looks like the pictures for Michael Jr are on Michael J's according to the dates. Something is not adding up for the dates of these 2 people. See what you think. Thanks and the snow was over knee deep in places but I was able to walk on top of it for the most part.

Re: Evelyn Datoush, FAG#73619774
Your suggestion:
"73619772 her husband Alfred" Alfred is her son and is not buried there. Her husband William died in 1956 and his body was taken to Hannibal for burial.

Re: Dudo
Your question:
"Their suggestion:
please confirm that the spouse remains when the edit adds the parents. I thought I'd experiment and cut and paste the same spouse number.

It seems to work.
