Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've had a serious interest in recording our past and present for many years. I'm an avid researcher doing our genealogical history, and find searching cemeteries fascinating.

A headstone may be the last tangible remains of a loved one, proof that that person actually existed. I feel we're preserving these grave stones the best we can. By taking pictures and transcribing these headstones, we stop the progress of time, weather, and, most unfortunately, vandalism that sometimes makes a headstone illegible or missing.

So as you pass your way through a cemetery, consider an old Mexican saying about three

"First, there is the moment in which the body stops functioning. Second, there is the
time that the remains are consigned to the grave. Third, there is that moment, sometime
in the future, in which the person's name is spoken for the last time.......Then the
person is really gone."

As you read through the names on the grave stones, whisper their names aloud, so they will
not be forgotten and will live on forever.

For downloadable photos I try to post my cemetery photos on Picasa. You can search them at:

Lately I have found a focus on our Veterans. When I see that a Veteran has passed, I try to establish a Memorial for him or her. If you are a family member of one of these veterans, please request a transfer if you wish.

Thank you.

I appreciate your kindness, and I'm sure the whole family will, too.

Leo Edward Miller
Leo Miller is my grandfather. Although you have the details of his family and dates correct, he is NOT buried in Lenox Rural Cemetery in Canastota, NY. His wife, my grandmother, Mabel Miller, is buried there. However, Leo is buried at St. Agatha's Cemetery in Canastota. Please remove this misinformation from the Find A Grave site, as it may cause confusion and waste time to someone who is searching in earnest for his grave site.

Where did you obtain information that he is buried here? I would like to correct that source of information. Genealogy is a hobby of mine and when sources are incorrect, or when people assume certain information and give it to the public as fact, it can really throw someone off and be detrimental to true genealogical research.

Thank you,

RE: Memorial# 28785105
I agree with you that it is nice to have photos with the memorials and I always try to add a bit more info if possible based upon the inscription on the markers.
Yes, there was an opening in the fence that allowed me access to get the photos. I was in and out pretty fast with a lot of quick snaps due to being under attack from a bountiful mosquito population.
It was my pleasure to add photos to the memorials you created. I will upload the baby marker for 'Little Emery'

I have a photo of a marker from the Karker Cemetery that simply says 'BABY' and it seems to be the only one relevant to 'Little Emery'. Could it be his marker? I'll post it at your discretion.
