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 Byron Cemetery since it is less than 3 miles away.
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.

Emily Willis
Mr. Seibert,

I hope that all is well with you. Our family is planning a 100th birthday celebration for my grandmother in November. She has informed the family that her first grade teacher in East St. Louis, IL was Emily Willis. I am putting together a program of my grandmothers youth and I wanted to include information regarding Emily Willis.

Through research on Ancestry I believe I have located her through the 1900 and 1930 Census (even though her DOB's are remarkably different on both).I eventually located her tombsone on Find a Grave (as her mother and sisters names are inscribed on the very same headstone as hers).

With that said, I see that you have a year of Death as 1934 (although the tombstone does not list that). I waqs wondering where you received that information from? The reason I ask is because I am seeking her exact year of death for my research. Any assistance that you can provide would be extemely helpful, thank you.

Thank you for work you have done creating the memorials for my great great grandparents. To add a little more information to the story, Prior to the end of slavery their names were Herman and Sallie. They had two older children, Richard and Lizzie.

Osborn photos
Just wanted to say thank you for photographing the Osborn stones in North Cemetery in Cedarville this year. The last time I looked, there weren't any. My late husband was directly descended from them through Mariah N.and A. W. Osborn and their daughter Maria who married a Gowdy.

RE: Dehaven Memorials in Fairfield Cemetery
I would be happy to! I am currently working on the DeHaven/Cress family genealogy, thanks for asking!

Would you accept transfer of the DeHaven memorials that I've posted in Fairfield Cemetery?.

I wanted to publicly thank you for sending the wonderful photos that you took to our email. That was above and beyond the call of duty, and we appreciate it.

Thank you for the excellent photos you added to the McClellan's memorials. My back knows how difficult taking all those photos can be, and I appreciate your work very much!
