Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Jersey City, NJ and lived there for the first seventeen years of my life. The only grave I ever visited was my grandfather; he died in 1960. I didn't know that, within view of his grave, just accross the street, was the unmarked grave of my older brother. The Viet Nam War, and my part as a medic from age 17, put me in contact with many more graves and the people who would visit them.
I am now a retired Police Officer living in Fairborn, Ohio. I have been an Evidence Tech (now called CSI), Forensic Photographer and Death Investigator during my career and I suppose I'm still doing those things now - as a hobby.
Darlene and I had to put Cherry Grove Cemetery in Xenia, OH on 'standby' and are working in Rockafield Cemetery on the campus of Wright State University. This old pioneer cemetery has been expanded to include donors to their Anatomical Gift Program and the records that I've been given go back to 1970. It will be a busy winter for us but we are not even half-way done with photographing the memorial bricks that line the walkway through the cemetery.
We are still working on finding the graves of soldiers in the USCT and the 54th and 55th Massachusetts Infantry who are buried in Greene Co., OH but this is mostly book-work now.
Any 'grave photographs' I have taken are public domain; copy them and use them as you please.
*TRANSFERS: Most of the memorials that I have posted are not related to me, they are projects that I have taken-on. I believe that ANY relative should be able to take over management of these graves. Just ask me.

RE: Charles Edward Seibert
I've found quite a few graves where they went by their middle names or even just an initial first name and a middle name. I post 'em as I see 'em and if a family member finds them and takes over management, they can post however they feel comfortable. I'm just out here to help people find family. Happy Hunting!

Thank you
Thank you for all that you do and have done. I have made quite a few additions for bio's and links on memorials which you have created, and are my family. Would you please "accept" under the "Edit" tab so I can see what else needs to be done under my family. Thank you.

flora O'Brien Byron Cemetery
Flora was my grandmother. She was married to Clifford E O'Brien. They had 6 children - Marjorie Josephine (Dickson), James (Jim), Charles, Mary Ellen (Peters), John, and Eleanora. She died in 1948 from burns suffered in a kerosene fire. Her 4 oldest children were put into foster care with Miss Pearl Dickson and her nephew, Raymond during the depression as my grandparents were so poor. My aunt ended up marrying the nephew. Mary Ellen was my mother. I don't know if you could add this to Flora's record or not, but I was so glad to see her grave listed. My uncle Charles and his wife, Kay purchased grandma's gravestone in the 80's. Thank you!
