Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking pictures since I was a child. I started out using my Mom's old box camera. I used her old Brownie camera for awhile too. In 1990, I bought a Pentax K 1000 then when my grandson graduated high school, I bought a digital camera. I still have the Pentax & get it out once in awhile to take pictures. It's a good camera & I can do a few things with it that I haven't mastered with the digital.

I love taking pictures (got that from my Dad). In recent years, my hands are not as steady so I don't take as many pictures as I used to. I tell people that's why I take photos of headstones - they don't move around, you don't have to pose them, etc. LOL! Flowers are a good subject too!

Anyway, retirement & taking pictures are a good match! I also do genealogy, paint-by-numbers, volunteer at my church - I keep busy which is good. Have a good one!

IRISH EYES ARE SMILING
JOHN C. WHIPPLE JR
My friend is the one that gave me the dates and in the book there is a mention of another John Whipple. I looked through my cemetery book and found the one dated as he gave to me.

The book shows there was 2 John C. Wipple. A family member told me that info. It does get confusing. I will try to straighten it out. The picture I sent is of the entries in cemetery book.

Thank you so much for the wonderful picture of Fannie's head stone. This is one more piece to the family puzzle.
