Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in Eugene, Oregon since I was a child (originally from Superior, Montana).
Currently retired/disabled and photographing gravestones for a hobby and exercise.

Any and all photos that I have posted are for whoever wants them. Please feel free to use them and/or post them however you want. No reference or credit needs to be given me.

Note to other photographers:
Many (if not most) people would love to see their ancestor's gravestones in full and in their setting. When shooting a stone, please take it from a distance enough to capture the stone accordingly. If it's one of those old, tall stones, take two shots; one as described and one close-up of the name and dates.
I have had to add shots to hundreds of memorials that already had shots because the existing one was just a close-up of the name and dates.

Thank you so much for the gravestone photos for Sarah Hoffman Bundy. I very much appreciate having a photo of the whole stone as well as a close up of the inscription.

The memorial I made for her is not a duplicate, because the other one was established even before she died. It didn't show up on a search as there was no date of death on the one entered before she died. "Memorials" for living people are totally cringe-worthy and I feel sorry for family members who see them later. Find-A-Grave must agree as they ban those memorials. That being said, and since you added a marker photo to the bad one, I'll delete my correct one. Your hard work is appreciated! Thanks -Jan

The information you have entered on my grandfathers grave is incorrect. He was not marred to Wilma Berwanger his son Marvin Joseph Sires was. Could you please correct this. It will not let me edit it out.

Mollee M. Baxter Stafford #121292232
I have a small puzzle and am hoping you can help me. I visited the Stafford Cemetery near Mohawk today and took pictures of all the headstones. Among them was one for Mollee. Next to her is her husband , along with many Staffords. I started to load the photo I took to her memorial page, then realized the memorial is for Marcola Cemetery. Is this a clerical error, or do you think there are stones at both cemeteries? I will wait to load my photo or create a memorial at Stafford cemetery until I hear back from you. I hope you can shed some light on this! Thanks for all your hard work.

Thank you for the photo of Sylvester Lewis' marker (#45200604). Would it be OK with you if I post your photos, with credit, to my family tree?
Thank you,

I saw your picture of the headstone of Dr and Mrs Hicks.

He was a professor of mine in college. Can you tell me where they are buried? I wanted to let the caretaker of their profiles aware as they still have "unknown burial"

Thanks for all you do.
