Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a fairly recent enthusiast of cemetery photography. I suspect becoming a site contributor and photo volunteer was inevitable.

I live in the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee. My involvement in the Society for Creative Anachronism (the "SCA") means that I travel to other states - notably Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

When possible, I now "fit in" cemetery photography sessions while away from home.

Most of the memorials I have made are for people I am not related to. They've come about from picture-taking adventures and subsequently learning that no memorial existed. When appropriate, I add photographs to existing memorials.

A good number of the memorials I manage but did not make are my family. Some were created before I came along and were kindly transferred to me by other contributors who are not related to them. Others originated from the U.S. Veterans Affairs Office and were transferred to me by Find A Grave Administration.

A couple of memorials I now manage are of non-relatives for whom I suggested rather extensive editing based on information I had gathered ... and the non-relative originator chose to transfer management to me.

If you find that one of your relatives has a memorial made by me, I'll be happy to transfer management - WITHIN the 4-generation direct relationship guidelines as given in the Find A Grave FAQ. --->> Please do specify your exact relationship in the SAC! <<---

FAQ #162 states that the 4-generation direct relationships are as follow: "This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."

Kindly DO NOT copy my photographs for use on other websites. Yes, I ***REALLY*** DO mean: DON'T post photographs that I have taken to or to any other site.

Copyright for images posted to Find A Grave remains with the photographer, who in this case reserves the right to not permit further sharing on the Internet.

Just wanted you to know that the "Public Mausoleum" is not as public as the name sounds. Wanted you to know that however, Riverside has an excellent Genealogy site. It includes a photo of the crypt and her obituary. the link is

Hope that helps some

Pet Haven Cemetery in Georgia
I just have a question that no one seems to be able to answer. I put about 80 pet names on find a grave in Hanover, PA. Another member said I should add Cat or Dog for their last name. I don't really like that idea. I see you have "unknown" for the last name which seems to be the better thing to do. Is there a guideline on this?? I've seen no last names on a lot of memorials but then you can't look them up because you need a last name to look someone up. Sorry for the long question!! Thank you for your help!! Have a great day! Laura

The Brackett line
Tangent, your great grandfather Daniel B. Brackett's father, William M. Brackett, was a brother to my great grandmother, Asinath Josephine "Jo" Brackett Westmoreland(Mem. # 8442478). Amazing what one finds when researching their family lines!

RE: Wilbur Glenn Marchman. ID# 121818767
No he isn't a relative. You may not even believe me if I told you. Short version is my girl friend and I live in Georgia not far from where he is buried. 5 years ago I took her to the cemetery in Cobb county and...well to put it bluntly, we didn't go home alone. I mean no disrespect to him or to this page or anyone on here but I have been trying for the last 5 years to get some info on him that would help us to understand some things. One being why is he buried alone so far off from anyone else. His grave sits on that little hill with no one else around him. A lonely sad sight when you visit. We just both feel a connection to him (and before this I would have laughed if someone told me these things that I am saying now) and we visit him often.

Glad to hear that you found the pictures of your gg grandparents, that I had posted. They are also the gg grandparents of my wife. The pictures came from my wife's mother, William and Mary's great granddaughter.

Hi Tangent. My name is James Tatum and I was hoping someone might be able to tell me something about Wilbur Glenn Marchman. You have the only info on him and I was wondering if you could help me. Thanks.
