Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been tramping cemeteries for decades looking for evidence of lost relatives, so I know if you live far away it would be so much easier if someone close by would be willing to do it for you. Since most of my relatives are from Winona county, Minnesota and I am in Indiana, this is a great idea.
I have no problem with transferring management of memorials, just let me know.
First I find the readings online to photograph the stones in the same order to match up the illegible and missing ones, photographing a number at each row. Then I photograph whole cemeteries or sections, up to 1,000 in one day and enter row/section numbers as I upload them. I carry my bucket of tools: brush, pruning snips, spray bottle, stuff to clean and clear around stones. I will try to upload my backlog of some 3,000 photos this winter. If you run across a duplicate memorial, let me know so I can delete it. If you request a photo from an identified section that I have pictures for, I will find and post it.
I have not found any online references to the MASSIVE Oakhill Cemetery in Plymouth, Indiana.
SO I have created and uploaded several spreadsheets from photographs and continue to add more. I'm guessing there are over 10,000 additional graves that are digitally undocumented. There are a few more daring gravers taking on this challenge. There may be some duplicates that slipped by and some that need editing. Dont hesitate to submit changes through the edit tab with corresponding memorial numbers. The numbers in the notes of the memorials are the photo numbers for that memorial. If I haven't gotten to your photo, submit a photo request with the section and photo number. I try to keep up with requests.

I have a virtual cemetery of the Gold Stars of Marshall County, Indiana. They are the WWI soldiers who died during their service. Check it out.

Re: Leiters Ford IOOF Cemetery
Instead of me trying to tell you my (or anyone else’s) graves that are unphotographed, here is an easier way. Go to the cemetery - Leiters Ford IOOF Cemetery. Click on “View All Interments”. At the very top, there is a white box that shows the word – “All Names”. Click on it to create a drop box. At the bottom of the drop box, there is – “Names with no grave photo”. Click on this box. This will bring up all names that are posted that do not have photos of the graves. In this instance, there are 1,628 names of people memorialized from this cemetery. Of those names, there are 281 that do not have a photo of the headstone.

I hope this helps, and makes things easier for you. If you have any questions, let me know, I will be happy to help.

RE: Amos Safford 60988494
Sure - added second photo that more clearly shows death date of Amos, Dec 11, 1870

Submitted an edit for the memorial dates when I uploaded the photo.
