Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an attorney and court commissioner in Dodge County, Wisconsin. My lovely wife Julie and our kids Philip and Grace (and dog Howie) enjoy exploring cemeteries with me.

Like most of my fellow gravers, I do this to preserve the history of those who came before us and the often beautiful works of art that mark their final resting places - and to make the information more accessible to those who might be searching for it.

My information comes from a variety of sources, including older cemetery transcriptions done by others. Feel free to contact me with corrections, additional information, transfer requests, questions, etc. I'll be happy to help if I can.

Thank you so much for taking pictures of my ancestors graves. I'm still in the verification process but I'm pretty sure its them. Without your help I wouldn't have been able to see the headstones. Thank you again.

RE: Thamesview Lodge Cemetery
Hi Steve,

I have done some research on the Thamesview Lodge Cemetery (formerly Potters Field)in Chatham, Ontario and have discovered that The Refuge House (Institution)of Dover Township was adjacent to this burial ground. It housed mostly the elderly poor from the area who didn't have anyone to care for them and no way of supporting themselves. Some were taken directly from the local hospital and placed there to die. They were all buried in the above mentioned cemetery. I have cross-referenced names with death records on (which indicate residency of the deceased to be the Refuge House). If they died there - then they are buried in Potter's Field. Many appear to be from other provinces or countries and may not have had family here to care for them. Some are just really old citizens who may have outlived their families. I'm just letting you know where I am getting my references from for the edits.

Thank you so much for providing such a good photo of Larry Hartmann's war memorial headstone. As you can see from his bio, he was a casualty of the battle at Gettysburg, PA during the civil war. Thank you so much.

Thanks for your efforts to find Albert back in March. I sent a message to add to his memorial that the grave is unmarked. Thanks,
