Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking pictures of cemeteries for 30+ years. I love the history and beauty of old cemeteries. It bothers me to see old cemeteries forgotten about and not being taken care of. Any stones I find that I can prop up and clean off, I will do. By "clean off," I am not referring to any type of chemical or abrasive. I have never, and would never, use such a thing. I am simply referring to taking a soft cloth or a stick or my hands to brush off mud, grass, mold if possible, and yes, even cow poop occasionally, in order to make the stone legible in the picture.

I get a lot of photo requests that I can't fulfill - I wish I had more time - but I prefer to do western Rockingham County, VA/Mathias, West Virginia. I can go as far north as Broadway/Timberville or south to Dayton/Bridgewater. I prefer not to do eastern Rockingham or Augusta County. I have gotten several requests for Pendleton County, West Virginia, which is about 40+ miles from me. I don't know if I can ever get out that way.

Please use the edit link on the upper right corner of a memorial if you would like me to make additions, corrections, or add links, and I will do so. I will be happy to make reasonable transfers. I hope people do the same for me! I have noticed some people are very good about making corrections or adding information right away, and others seem not to do it all.

Any pictures I take of cemeteries and stones, you are welcome to use for personal use. This does not mean you can create a duplicate memorial and copy my pictures onto it, which is against FAG rules. ANY FAMILY PICTURES OF GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS, PLEASE DO NOT USE. THESE ARE MY PERSONAL PICTURES AND I OWN THE ORIGINALS.

Helpful tip if anyone needs lots of pics from around here - I know there is a limit of 20 requests per week, so if you need more than that, please put the extra names in the Note section of your request for each cemetery - this will really help the photo volunteers and decrease the amount of repeat trips out to the same cemetery.

I trust you weren't the one chalking stones and just happen to be the photographer of markers someone else had defaced.

RE: Julia Funkhouser (Cutshall)
You better learn what "Ancestry.com" & "Find-A-Grave.com" is all about. It is about sharing pictures and information. I don't need your permission, you put it up there for all to see, It is now public domain. You delete yours. Maybe you need to find another place to Cry like a little baby.

Julia Funkhouser (Cutshall)
Julia Funkhouser was married to Jacob Gutshall 1832-1891. Some of there children change there last name of "Gutshall" to "Cutshall". The headstone Name is a little hard to see. So if it reads "Cutshall" It should have been "Gutshall".

Moses Triplett-129514832
Moses Triplett Cemetery. Ferguson, NC You both gave courtesy to whom it was due. What I want to see done is for you as the creator of this grave to state the family picture belongs to Dorothy Winebarger Killiam. Where everyone will see it. The person who put it on did. But not everyone looks under the picture. But I would like for you to state this openly. It dose not matter who got the family picture there. Thanks
