|Bio and Links|
I live in the Carytown section of Richmond, Virginia, USA, one time capital of the Confederate States of America. I grave the area of New Jersey to Georgia, mainly looking for family burials.|
My main interest in Find-A-Grave is that I want all of my kin represented, monument photography and portraits where available, and properly linked to their own. A large part of the graves I've posted are my own kin. And sure, sometimes in these cemeteries I'll see neglected or damaged or sinking markers, so I tidy them up, take a picture and post it, feeling like I might be their last best chance to be remembered to some future researcher. We all have the same goal, we're working for posterity, and I think this data base has become a number one-stop for researchers, and all because we collectively archive.
I'm a U.S. Navy veteran, Vietnam era, duty aboard the USS Canopus AS-34. I raised a family, but lost my wife. I made a career in newspaper production, am now retired, and enjoy volunteer gravestone photography.
Anyone who wants to use my photos may do so, without restrictions. It's all for posterity. They have been posted here for you to use. If you want a transfer, simply ask for it.

|Kathy Funk||South Park Cemetery - THANKS!|
Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate cemetery for South Park Cemetery. I have moved my father-in-law's burial to the correct cemetery. I get so confused about the counties in that part of the Houston area. Thanks again!
Thank you for Felix Henly Jones, Ethel Colvard Jones and Samuel Thomas Jones III memorials. My daughter-in-law was overwhelmed to locate her father and grandparents. Your kindness is truly appreciated.
Rich, Thank you very kindly, Very nice job. Good to hear from you,Ted
|Roibeard53||RE: Fairmount Cemetery ~ Hermes|
You're welcome for the photos. There is no marker or inscription on either front or back of that monument. If the son was buried with his father it is not marked. Would you like me to remove the photo or put an explanation in the caption box?
John and Lucy's marker was under about six inches of leaves in a sea of leaves. I found it by counting rows and graves from Elizabeth Heimal's grave, then started sweeping leaves around. Elizabeth's was completely grown over with roots and grass. The Hermes stone was clean just covered in leaves which were dry fortunately.
I knew that Mary was Lish and not List. I had emails with her when they were cleaning up the place. It was ironic when I went to go into the cemetery the day I was there and was told the cemetery was "closed" because of the grass cutting. I looked around and saw more missing fence than existing fence and wondered how it could be closed. Still I had no desire to go wandering around in it by that time.
I hope to be at Fairmount again soon.

Happy to help. You providing the specific section of the gravesites did the trick. So many requets don't have that info provided and that's why there's such a lengthy backlog. Only family members are given that info, so volunteers can't do much without it in a cemetery with over 120,000 graves. Thanks to you, the Moss graves were easy to find.

Thanks for the catch on the county. That is what comes from late night genealogy! I have been in contact with Archie Colburn and he tells me you put up a lot of good pictures. Thanks for that. Ada Brown Gill was my g-grandmother.

Thank you so much for spotting my duplicate in the incorrect cemetery. I appreciate your attention to detail.
