Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping people by providing them photos of relatives and friends grave sites. Turning a wish into a fulfilled dream.

Almost all memorials I create are not family members, and I am willing to transfer them to other members.

Do not use the photos I take anywhere else, including within Find A Grave, without permission. I retain the copyright to all of my photos.

Major Accomplishment 2015: Fulfilled over 1,000 photo requests, most of which were at Forest Home Cemetery in Forest Park, Illinois, and cleared up 75% of the photo requests at the cemetery.

Major Accomplishment 2014: Fulfilled over 2,222 photo requests with number 2,000 occurring on October 28, 2014. Multiple cemeteries with large backlogs of over 100 photo requests were cleaned up while completing this project.

Major Accomplishment 2013: Added photos for all 433 persons buried in the Chicago Typographical Union Section of Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove, Illinois along with most of the veterans sections, the old age home, Civil War wives, and a large group of graves at the southern end of the cemetery.

RE: Your note:
John & Mary Krewer at St. Vincent Cemetery
Hi! You posted a wonderful photo of John and Mary Krewer to the John Krewer memorial at the link below. Thank you for posting this photo of family members I never had the chance to meet. Are you related to them?

I was wondering if you could send me a high resolution copy of the photo if I sent you my e-mail address. I would like to have a copy for my Krewer family file.

If you need any photos of other graves at St. Vincent Cemetery please let me know. I would be happy to take photos for you.

Best wishes for a great day! Ace
I would be happy to send you, via email, a copy of the photo that you spoke of.
No I am not related. this is the family of my daughter-in-Law. Her name is Janice Krewer-Wise.
So please let me know your email and I will get it off to you as soon as I hear from you.

RE: Barnhart Cemetery near Streator, Illinois
Hi Ace
I believe I took that photo from the road and did not go into the cemetery. I can't tell if the cemetery is on private property or not so am not sure where you could park or how to walk to it.

RE: Sarah Muscarello
Thanks so much for sending the obit for this cousin. I was having a heck of a time finding the death record! And thanks too for fixing the spelling of her daughter's last name. I did the same thing and transposed a couple of letters.
I have almost all of her kids in place...thank you!

Schaaf, Conrad & Mary Alice

May I have your permission to use the photo of Conrad & Mary Alice Schaaf's marker for my Ancestry Tree? They were my Great-Grandparents on my mother's side of the family.

Thank you so much for posting these pictures, I don't make it to Illinois much, and have never seen their grave before. I appreciate the time and effort it took to get the pictures.

RE: Warren Crandall, 38799746, at Crandall Cemetery
Hi, again. I forgot to say that I found Warren living with the Erastus Rice family in Warren County, Illinois, in 1850. I'm not sure if they are his relatives, but his obit mentions a recording he made in 1903 or so, about his life, in which he states that he went back to Illinois after buying land in Leroy, KS, and brought back the Rice family to Kansas. Could Sarah M Rice be his sister?

RE: Warren Crandall, 38799746, at Crandall Cemetery
Hi, Ace. I did a little more digging today, because I knew next to nothing about Warren. He was the husband of one of my cousins, Isabella Jones, and I think that's why I sort of "inherited" the memorials for the family. I found an obituary transcribed on the "Crandall Family Tree" on It is quite informative. If you can't access it, send me your email address, and I will forward it to you. The same tree gives his parents' names as Joseph Crandall, Sr (d abt 1835) and Deborah Willcox (no dates).
Regards, Diane
