Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Atlanta metro area and became a photo volunteer in December 2012. I am already hooked! I truly enjoy helping others find their loved ones' graves. In the process, I learn about some fascinating people!

As a result, I have launched a blog, Adventures in Cemetery Hopping, to document my work. I post a new entry every Friday morning. The link is posted below.

You are welcome to use any photo I have posted and if you could give me credit, I would appreciate it.

Also, let me know if you would like me to transfer a memorial to you if you are a relative or close friend.

RE: Leroy Beach
Could you make out what the engraving says at the bottom of Lee Beach's marker? I read it as "COOK COAST ....." I can't quite read the last word. Thanks

Thank you for taking the time to photograph the headstone of John C. Odom, my 2G-grandfather. It helps to tell the family story.

Peace be with you.

RE: Charleston cemeteries
The Unitarian Church is a can't miss. The design of the cemetery was led by the minister Samuel Gilman's wife Caroline Howard Gilman in the 1840's, or thereabouts. The cemetery is left to a natural condition with very little, if any weed pulling. Many wild flowers. I was just there last week and it was beautiful. You can enter the cemetery on King St, just North of Queen. Caroline Gilman's father was Samuel Howard one of the original Indian's of the Boston Tea Party.

Have fun when you come.

RE: Charleston cemeteries
Hi Swan girl, good to hear from you and thanks for the kudos. I've been in Coming Street cemetery only on two occasions. It's not open to the public and is usually padlocked. I was fortunate to find the gates open on those two occasions. I did try to go to the office to get in, but it never worked out. Hope you have better luck. I took photo's of everything that I could read. You might have to bring something to clean the headstone so you can read them. I usually use water and a sponge. That way no further damage is done to the slab or memorial. Other than that all the cemeteries in downtown have been worked for find a grave, but a stray stone overlooked isn't unusual. Perhaps you can also take better photo's and post them. Many of mine need to be replaced as some aren't as good as I'd like. Nice of you to write and take the time to help. Good luck. Don't forget to take the time to go to Magnolia cemetery. It's a worthwhile trip and it's just outside of downtown.
