Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for several years and have taken several pictures of my family and relatives grave stones. I am a retired pastor and my wife and I do a lot of traveling. I have many hobbies but photography probably tops the list even though some pictures don't come out the way I want. When I take a picture I try to make it as readable as I can and try to post all that is on the stone. I'm not just trying to post to get a large number but to help others with genealogy as I have been helped.
I have found a lot of newspaper articles and the funeral brochures that my parents had of people that I didn't know but I have posted several. I would be glad to help in any way that I can. I will transfer your relatives or close friends if they are not my relatives.
You may use any pictures that I have posted for genealogy purposes only.

I believe that this grave is for Willie Craddick, born 14 Nov 1869, died 31 Dec 1869. In 1860, the parents were 16 and 13 years old. I know the head stone is very worn but I chalked it and the name was a bit clearer. Oh, this is a relative of mine.

Are you close to Pana, IL? I'm looking for a pic of William Gudehus' stone. I suspect that his 2nd wife might have been buried with/near him.

I have done a pic request.

Thanks you for taking the picture of my 3x g-grandfather in Zion Cemetery. I knew he died in that area, but I never knew which cemetery. I noticed his wife Nancy Chambers is not listed. Do you believe she may be in that cemetery and not photographed? If you would be so gracious as to transfer him to me , I would very much appreciate it. If not I could give you some of his family to link to him. Thanks again, Mark Miller

Rev. Howard A. Goss

I am doing research on the Goss family and I am specifically looking for the location of the cemetery that Rev. Howard A. Goss is buried in Toronto. I noticed a picture of his headstone and wondered if you might know the name of the cemetery.

Thank you,
