Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started into genealogy in 1990 and enjoy tracing my family's history, and learning about the history of the area's my ancestors lived in. I take pictures of many headstones when I go to a cemetery, so if you see a memorial page I have and you are related, don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. (If you would like for me to transfer a page to you, please let me know by using the "edit" button since that will provide both a link to the page and a link to your contributor page with the necessary ID# for the transfer).
I especially try to get photos of our veteran's headstones as I believe they have all earned, besides our gratitude and other things, the right to have a memorial page on this site.
Anyone wishing to use the photos, in their genealogy, that I have posted on this website are free to use them.
Anyone wishing to have memorials that I have added removed from find a grave need only send a request. I put the memorial pages here so that family members in search of ancestors can find them, not to offend anyone.

Names I am tracing: Boone, Musser, Baney, Boston, Kyttle (Kittle), Monroe, Swire, King to name the main ones.

Memorial Info
Hi Jay, after spending the last week scouring Buffalo Homicide reports, I couldn't find what I was looking for. In trying to not have it be a complete wasted effort, I looked up some of the people I could find so that others may be helped. You manage memorial # 153083386 and I did find quite a bit of info for this person. If you are interested I will transcribe it and send it via the edit tab. If not--no hard feelings. Figured I'd ask before typing it all out. Best regards :) RC

Pritchard/Harvey Graves
Thank you so much for your contributions to Find a Grave. I see that you have taken photos of the Pritchard/Harvey site in Area 9, but I do not see a headstone for two members and I'm wondering if they were there:
Margaret Harvey (widow of David Pritchard, wife of Robert Harvey) b 1871, d 1931

David Pritchard (site owner) b 1870, d 1893

Thanks again for all your hard work

Girven Family
thank you so much for adding my families tombstone to "find a grave" It means so much to me.
Can I ask why you chose the Girven family?

RE: Edwin and Alta Smith
So glad I could help. Funny thing is that I was at Floral Haven on Saturday shooting some photos in the Garden of St. Paul for some memorials that needed them. Edwin and Alta happened to be on one of the rows I was working on. So it was serendipity that I had the photos already on my computer ready to upload. :)

Hi, Jay,

Thanks, once again, for accepting the edits. I expect I'll have more info about them in the future. I started connecting some of the dots in their family from Greenwood in Wilson, but it's a really large, convoluted, family. Don't know who I'll get to, when.

Thanks, also, for all your work on find-a-grave.

Take care.

Re: Mary Jamison
Thanks for speedy transfer of Mary Jamison's memorial. That inadvertent duplicate has been deleted. The transfer, crediting you as original contributor, gives me some small opportunity to acknowledge your remarkable work at Forest Lawn.
