|Bio and Links|
I am retired from the Navy, and have retired IN 2001 after 35 years in Law Enforcement. A couple of my hobbies are the documentation and photographing of the tombstones of the Woodmen of the World and the associated fraternal associations, and the photography and documentation of the Civil War veterans headstones where ever I come across them. I had ancestors who fought on both sides of the Civil War. My great Grandfather (Fathers side) fought Confederate (Texas Cav) and his twin brother fought Union side (Colorado Cavalry). My great Great grandfather (Mothers side) fought For the Union from Ohio. I actually actively search for both of the above mentioned types of tombstones in cemeteries where ever I happen to be. My wife usually accompanies me and assists me greatly in these hobbies.|
If you have a better quality photo then the one I have posted I will not be offended if you post it.
I'll be more then glad to transfer any memorials, except for my family, to anyone who wishes them, just write and ask.

|Brad Whitney||RE: Henry Parscal|
You're very welcome Jim and thank you for the work you do, especially with the veterans. You've captured many of the civil war vets and it's not very often I find one that you've missed.
|Brad Whitney||RE: Henry Parscal|
Jim, I know you always check and believe this is a first as I don't ever recall running across one before. This is one of those unfortunate cases where the name was misspelled in the burial records and a memorial created with the misspelled name a year prior. I believe the guidelines indicate that the first memorial created is the original even if the memorial is created with a misspelled name.
I'd be happy to remove my photo if you'd like to use yours instead.
|Anne||William Wright photo|
In regards to your suggestion:
The Willard wright photo that is on this WILLIAM H. WRIGHT is not the correct photo and the dates on the stone do not match up with the dates on the entry. Can you please remove the photo from this entry.
Unfortunately I am unable to remove a photo that I didn't place onto the memorial. You would need to contact the person that submitted the photo and ask them to remove it. Their name should be listed directly below the photo.

Okay thanks anyway. I will be posting a more comprehensive list and photos from Sunnyside in the next few months, so let me know if you come up with anything or if I can help you find anyone in relation to Victor/Cripple Creek/Teller County.
Hello, I just found your message 2 years later! Are you related to Mr. Sebek? What is your connection? I'm doing a lot of research on the prior residents of Victor so would appreciate your input. Hope to hear from you soon.

I have sent through some edits for your memorial of Joseph Gray in Linn Grove Cemetery IN Greeley. There is no Joseph G Gray buried in Linn Grove. He is Joseph Gigray. The stone is damaged and the I in his last name is missing. I do have documentation of this and have checked with the cemetery..
|Diane Turrentine||Chas O & Lydia Austin|
Thank You so much for the pictures. It really means a lot to our family. This is the part of our Austin family that moved to Rifle, Colorado from Missouri in the late 1800's. It is great to have the pictures of their last resting place. Someday I hope to get to rifle and see all the family members there.
Again - Thanks so much

Yes, I would appreciate if you would transfer Linda Sprague's memorial to me. I will take good care of it.
|Linda K.||Fred Christian - Evergreen Cemetery, Co Spgs, Co|
Thank you for the picture of my Great Uncle's grave. I have only been to Evergreen Cemetery once and did not know where to find my family!
I appreciate your work very much!
I too am interested in the Civil War. My family fought Union!
