Bio and Links
Bio Photo My primary interest is genealogy, so I photograph surrounding family members' graves when possible, even when those folks were not included in the request. Please feel free to use my photos in your family trees.

I am a retired English teacher in Austin, Texas. I am a third generation Texan if you count being born here, but there are five generations of my family buried here.

Please contact me if you have questions about any of the photos I've posted. For any of the memorials I've created, I'll be happy to transfer them if they are not related to me. Even if it is my relative, if you are a direct descendant and I am not, I will make the transfer.

Robert Edward Caffrey
Hi! Thanks for catching my error on getting a photo of Robert's gravestone. I created a site for him and his wife Donna Elizabeth Wall without realizing that someone had already created a site for them.

Photo for Rosa Duran #39737650
Thank you for taking the time and effort to locate and photograph the marker for Rosa. Surprised to se how primitive it was. Thank you again. JR.
