|I enjoy photographing cemeteries and posting the information here on Find-A-Grave for all my fellow genelogists to use. I know how difficult it is to find burial sites of elusive relatives.|
As for transfers of these memorials, I am glad to do it, provided your request falls within the Find-A-Grave transfer guidelines. I find that sticking to the guidelines keeps everyone happy and polite.
Regardless, I am always happy to add links, family information, or obituaries to any of these memorials. Just use the EDIT tab and ask away. I often add links myself based on information in an obituary or on a gravestone.

First time in 43 years of employment I've missed work because of the weather, even having lived in Colorado for nine years. I was the only two wheel drive vehicle that attempted climbing the hill to our houses last night, but I was TOO scared to try going down this morning with all the drop offs. That gives me three days to try and put a dent in all of my old emails, yea !!

Thank you very much for adding the information and family links to Ellen's memorial. I truly appreciate you doing this and also thanks for the quick response. That was amazing!!!
BTW, I didn't mention her husband's full name, but if you would like to add it, it's Claude Haines Hall.

Thank you so much for creating and updating his memorial. I'm glad we could work together to make his memorial more complete. I also want to tell you what a difference your volunteer work here on findagrave.com makes. I appreciate all the time you take to follow up on requests such as mine.

The cemetery isn't particularly difficult to find, but you can't really see it from the road unless you know just where to look.
First pass through I didn't see it. I doubled back when I was certain I had gone too far, and stopped by a large house on the other side of the street from the cemetery.
A very nice woman that answered the door pointed me in the right direction. She actually had a cemetery on HER property too (what are the odds? I think it was the Green family, only about 5 legible stones and in terrible condition) She said to go up the road a bit, and look for a the house that looks like it was put together from 2 different houses. She said is owned by a Mexican family.
She's actually not far off in her description of the house. I stopped by on 2 different days and rang the doorbell, never got an answer. On the 2nd day I didn't want to leave empty-handed.
The Durham County auditor's site shows the cemetery is not on the house's property anyway, so I probably made it harder than I had to and went around the long way through wild blackberries and other assorted brambles instead of cutting through their property. I did up cutting through their property on the way out. It was hot that day. :)
The cemetery is a VERY mixed bag; some stones are in close to pristine condition, others are illegible. Some are professionally done, some are written in cement. It was not overgrown at all, and someone is taking very good care of it. There is a wooden bench with a hand-carved "LADD" in it, with some flower pots, some statues.
I photographed every stone that I saw, and put it on Find-a-Grave, but I am sure there are a lot of unmarked here.
I am happy to send you the higher resolution photos I took.

OK, I may make a trip out the tomorrow if I can sneak away. Thanks!

Hello! Do you happen to have a higher resolution photo of the one you took for memorial 18591434, Mary H. Dollar? (Rose of Sharon Baptist)
I am very interested in this headstone; my primary interest is finding out, if possible, who made it.
I have seen many other examples of this person's work all around Durham cemeteries, but this one looks like it might be a very early example of the general template he used.
Here are just a few other examples of the same person's work:
