Re headstone and cemetery photos:

1.In some cases, clicking on the photo will provide a much better view of the inscription.

2.Some of my photos are not of the highest quality, especially the earlier uploads. If you have a better one, don't hesitate to add it--but please let me know.

3. Headstone and cemetery photos which I have posted here were all taken by me, except two which were given to me by a cousin and a friend, who have been acknowledged on the photos.


4. About copying headstone photos: Please read Find-a-grave Policy

My photos are here to honour the people named on the headstones, and to be shared,....but if copied to any other location PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE AND CREDIT THE SOURCE.

The above notes have been posted since 2011. The following was added April 2013:

Given the number of photos found on with no credit, it seems the above is not clear. Headstone and cemetery photos may be uploaded to other sites if they are properly source credited. The source of the photo is the find-a-grave website, and the photographer.

Margaret & John Starrett graves
I just wanted to thank you for having photos of the graves of my great grandparents archived on "Find a Grave". Because of the photos, I learned the dates of their deaths. They also served to show the change in the spelling of the last name (which was originally Starit in the local census and then eventually was changed to Starrett.)

A. Starrett

Luman Latham

I see from the Find a Grave web site that you have created a file on John Henry Latham from his gravestone in the Lyn Cemetery. John Henry is my GG Grandfather and I am trying to locate information on who Luman Latham's father and mother were....dates of birth, death, any other siblings and who his Grandfather & Grandmother were...dates of birth, marriage, death etc.

Any of this would be helpful...I have stuck on info on Luman for over a year.

Happy Thanksgiving

Ault and associated persons
Thank you, first for adding the Ault family and associated persons to Find A Grave, and secondly for transfering them to me....

As I verify information I will add to their memorials.........

Your work has been a help to me and hopefully to other researchers....

Joyce Renwick was born in 1937. She was a twin to James Stanley Renwick (My brother-in-law). Hope you can add this info. I will see if there are any photos of her from her surviving family members. Thanks

Lemuel Mallory Memorial
Hi Shirley,

Thanks for including all of the information about Lemuel and his family. I descend from James Weir and Salachy Mallory so I believe we are related in some way. I know nothing about James Weir before he appears on the 1850 Federal Census in Michigan. Do you know if they were married in Canada and then moved to Michigan? If you know anything about them, it would be helpful to me.

Thanks again,
Wallace Wier
