Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a former Marine and have been told a couple of times over the last 30 years that I'd be in a wheel chair within a year or two, due to various injuries I've encountered while enjoying the adventure of life. So far the Doctors have been wrong - I need a cane and am pretty slow, but I get there.

I've been taking volunteer pictures for Find A Grave since June or July 2011 and decided that while searching for requested markers, I'm going to take pictures of the older Military markers and the markers which are barely readable, requested or not. During bad weather or days my legs don't work, I'll go to those photos and do my best to interpret them and add text to the pictures to identify who they are and which cemetery they're in. And then add them to Find A Grave if there's a memorial out there with no photo.

Before joining the Marine Corps in 1970, I was a grave digger at Union Cemetery (640 acres) in Columbus Ohio. There was a crew of thirty full time, including six guys my age (17), all of us in need of discipline. We had more fun in a cemetery than you're supposed to have, doing things you're not supposed to do in cemeteries.

Now I enjoy peacefully looking for requested markers.

Thomas Robertson
He is connected to his wife. His wife was listed in her obit as Mrs. Thomas Robertson. After rereading his obit I saw where her first name was Amanda. I made the change for better clarity.

Orley Blakeman's photo
Hi. I was looking up my relative Orley Blakeman, 1885-1958. I found his memorial 26008192 and saw your photo of his tombstone. But the photo you added is for his son, Orley, so it's on the wrong memorial. Thanks. Martha

Fidelia Fletcher
Hi Kevin,
You have posted the wrong tombstone on the Fidelia Fletcher memorial. Could you remove it. The name on the tombstone isn't connected to any member in her family.

RE: Erwin Gruel

If you look closely, you'll find an ElWin and an ElVin. There are pix for both of them and the obit belongs to ElVin.

Great great grandparents
Good evening Kevin. I see that you have taken photos at Niantic Long Point cemetery before. I am emailing you to ask if you would be ever so kind to take 2 photos for me. I am in northern California..and with as much as I would love to be able to do it myself.. I cannot. My great great grandparents are buried there. Their names are David and Harriet Whyte. I put out a request on find a grave about 4 years ago with no luck... Please let me know if this is something you could possibly do. Thank you for your time. Mistie Clark.

You are very welcome. :)

I love helping others whenever I get the opportunity to do so. If there is anything else I can get for you, please let me know.

Please removed the picture on the above grave. It is for Doris McKown and should be Louise McKown. Do you by any change have a picture of Louise's stone? If I took it, I deleted it. Kay
