|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family history since 1973. Find A Grave is a great resource. Surnames important to me: Harp, Hoagey, Swavely, Krause, Sheafer, Kline, Keeney, Irvin. Most of our family was in Pennsylvania.|
Oakland Cemetery has over 15,000 known interments. The Bureau County Genealogical Society has maps and caretaker records for this cemetery. The BCGS has very good information on all the cemeteries in the county.
I enjoy the search and challenge of finding the graves. Photo requests get my highest priority. When I go out to fulfill a photo request, I photograph all the markers in the family plot. The rules I follow; "Photograph the grave/gravesite "in-situ", or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's "good deed" just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos...but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site. -AJ" Mar. 10, 2013
When time permits, if a memorial does not exist I create one. I also search for some records to tie the people together and add a bio. I have a backlog of photos to create memorials. Each trip involves multiple cememteries and normally 300 to 500 photos.
If you would like to use my photos, please ask. I have recently experienced some issues with my photos being used inappropriately. I want to share, but I want to know who, what, where, how? the photos will be used. Transfers and edits, please use the EDIT tab.

|Barbara Stein||RE: Corrine Lonergan|
Thank you for clarifying the burial site. All it says in the obituary and on the funeral home site is "Burial will be at St. Mary Cemetery in Ohio". I wish funeral homes would complete the obituary with the town and state. This particular obituary implied burial would be in the state of Ohio. I am hoping that there will not be another site for her in Ohio. Thanks.

We are still on the trail of the entire Brigham family and would appreciate any further clues to firstname.lastname@example.org... hope this much helps someone else.
|Robert Drexler||Law Family Grave Stones|
Your family line up is correct :-). Thank you for all your hard work. You have made a lot of Henry Family Researchers very happy. You have helped break down a major brick wall for us.
|Robert Drexler||William and Polly (Henry) Law|
Thank You Very Much :-)
|Robert Drexler||William and Polly (Henry) Law|
You are the Man! Thank you for going out of your way in solving this problem for my family.
I am trying to determine who Polly's parents are. One record has them as John Lyman and Amy (French) Henry of Killingly Connecticut. The more research that I do, I find the records are showing that her parents should be Francis and Charity (Unknown) Henry. They are also from Killingly Connecticut. It's beginning to look like John would be Polly's older brother.
Your new information has now given me a solid point of reference that I can work backwards from Illinois to Connecticut.
My fingers are crossed there are grave stones a Hopeland Cemetery.
|Robert Drexler||Francis and Madeline (Law) Nordstrom|
From the Drexler Family of Pasadena, Maryland thank you for adding Francis and Madeline (Law) Nordstrom grave stone to Find A Grave. My wife is related to the Law Family.
After reading your Find A Grave Bio, I got the feeling you may be able to assist me in locating Madeline great grandparents William Aldrich and Polly (Henry) Law.
William passed away on 1 sept 1860 and Polly passed away on 5 Dec 1900. Both died in Illinois. Polly (Henry) Law is my wife's 2nd great grandmother.
Please let me know if you have any additional information on the Law family or know where I need to look for there final resting place.
Again thanks for adding the grave stone photo.

Is it ok if I use the photo you took of their grave marker on their ancestry.com timelines to document their burials?
