Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years.
In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them.
If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.

Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.

RE: Edwin C. Griewahn #141340570
Thanks for double checking. I put in the wrong birth date for Mary, she was born in 1874. Thanks so much for catching that! So yes, Edwin really is her son. :-)

RE: Prichard Cemetery
I looked through the help section and didn't find anything. Very true, sometimes the person who creates the cemetery is the one who post's the photo of the cemetery, but not always. They could also include a link at bottom of page for corrections on cemeteries. Thanks again!

Prichard Cemetery
Not sure if you added this cemetery, or if you can even edit it...Prichard is an incorporated city in Mobile county, Alabama. It's not in the city of Mobile. It's in Prichard, Mobile, Alabama. Just saw this on a memorial and knew it was a city of it's own. Thanks

Harriett Steele
I'm looking for a Hattie or Harriet Steele she is a cousin but her maiden name was Fortenberry.
I saw where you have a Harriet Steele but it had a
C.initial i was just wondering if this could be who i'm looking for or if the C was a maiden name.
I don't know who she is married to and i'm trying
to connect her to her parent.

thank you.
