Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.

I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.

So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

re> Lindon & Sarah Clark
Are you related to these folks? I see you posted marriage license. I am looking for Lindon's sister Aida Clark Seeley Payne (1908-88)

RE: Lucy Dewey
Still waiting for a reply from woman at M.F. Society. Sent her another message. I would think they should accept it since you have seen it. I told her it is very old and messed up. Thank you, Connie

RE: Lucy Dewey
Hi, I'm sorry I don't know much about cameras. I will ask my contact at M.F. Society if I can just use you and your information as a reference for Lucy. I did click on the picture and Roswell was easier to read and I could read Lucy a little easier. Thank you again, Connie

RE: Harrington Family
Karen, thanks so much for writing back. The memorial numbers are as follows:

Amy Harrington: Memorial# 109657830

Lovina Jane: 109531445
George: 109531212
Mary: 109658301

If you ever come across brothers Charles W. or Milan Harrington, I'd love to know. I don't have a DOD for Charles, but Milan passed on October 15, 1864.

Thank you again!

Lucy Dewey
Hi, want to thank you very much for spending your precious time to get the photo of my ancestor Lucy Dewey Harding. This photo is much better than the previous one. I was just wondering if you had been able to read her inscription.I can make out her name and most of Roswells info. The problem is that there doesn't seem to be any record of her birth or death. That is the last information I need before I submit it to the Mayflower Society for approval.
The lady from the Mayflower society here in Florida had suggested I contact find a grave since neither one of us had been able to read the previous one. I realize it is very old and they are very weathered and damaged. Thank you again, Connie Brooks Heskett

Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph these for me. I appreciate it very much. It is so wonderful to have people who are willing to do what I will never have the opportunity to do. Thank you again.

Harrington Family
I just wanted to thank you for listing and photographing the memorials for the Harrington family in Harford Mills Cemetery. I've been looking for this family of ancestors for years with no luck. Stephen and Amy were my 2nd G-Grandparents. Mary was my great-grandmother's twin who died about age 5. If you could transfer management of the family to me, I'd be very grateful.

Kind regards,
Lauri Levy

Titchener/Williams Plot - Cortland Rural Cemetery
Thanks so very much for the many photographs taken of the monument and headstones in the Titchener/Williams plot in the Cortland Rural Cemetery. They included my mother, my grandparents, and my great grandparents (and other relatives). It's been many years since I've seen the plot. I'm very grateful!! :)
