Bio and Links
Research includes some Central NJ, but primarily Ohio counties. Most of my and my wife's family are from Scioto County Ohio, just over the border in KY, Toledo, Defiance, Napoleon, and other areas of Ohio. These are the cemeteries I visit most often. I am currently working on a project to photograph all of Greenlawn Cemetery in Portsmouth Ohio. We have completed (as of 7/1/14) photographing the entire cemetery (minus the mausoleum which is never open wehn we are there). We hope to have the photos all named and posted by the end of April 2015.

We also photographed all of the visible stones in Frienship Cemetery in Nile Ohio. We will post those as well.

Also am photographing Glenwood Cemetery in Napoleon Ohio. Have the far right section from the road completed. Much remaining.

I am glad to transfer ownership of any of the memorials I photograph outside of my direct family. This is often easier than asking me to do many updates. Since I am photographing entire cemeteries I do not have time to update all the information findagrave allows for at this time. In order to submit such a large body of photos, I only input the death date to the upload spreadsheet to keep records straight. Good luck in your search, and hopefully I have posted something you find useful.

Monk Family in Greenlawn Cemetery
I have sent you a number of corrections for the Monk family in Greenlawn Cemetery, but I see that you might prefer to transfer? With the new edit feature, is this still the case?

Hi, would it be OK with you if I use two Bryson family headstone photos in my tree? Thanks!

Dennis Callomege gravestone

Thank you for photographing Dennis Callomege's gravestone.

I'm writing about African-American soldiers from Clark County, Kentucky (where he was born). May I have permission to use your photo? Of course, I will credit you, please let me know how you'd like the credit to read.

Luverna Francis Jordan Morris
There is a photo request for Luverna mem#86192868 at Greenlawn Cemetery in Louisa, Lawrence Co., KY.

I saw that you made the memorial for Luverna on Mar 3, 2012. Where did you get your info that she is buried in Greenlawn?? Reason for asking, we took photo requests in Oct and couldn't find Luverna in either cemetery.

My husband and I just finished photography the entire Greenlawn, both West & East and still cannot locate a marker or headstone for her.

113015591 "Jessie Finch"
My name is Sarah Kilgalen. I am the Grand daughter of Earl and Inez McQuain. My Mother was their first born daughter. If this person ("Jessie A. Finch") is next to My grandparents grave plot, then her name is Essie Finch. I have put in a name change for "Aunt" Essie. She was my grandmother's closest friend, and lived with the McQuains and their children in Portsmouth, Ohio., until her death. Thank you for your assistance with this memorial. It means a great deal to myself and my family.
Sincerely, Sarah Whipple Kilgalen
