Bio and Links
Bio Photo Life-long, third-generation Washingtonian.

I generally take and post 3 photos of a headstone or plaque, but sometimes another if there is something that may be of interest nearby. Don't hesitate to ask that I delete a photo that I've posted, if there are too many. Also, please let me know if you want/need the original photo files (full resolution) sent to you, as well as posted (resized) here.

More than happy for you to let me know if you ever want new photos taken and posted (such as during different times of the year), or want different views than what I've taken.

Please notify me prior to copying my photos to any other site. It's usually fine with me, but I like to know where they will appear, as these photos are copyrighted.

Thank you!

RE: Kealey
Sorry I see no reason to take it down. Only those of you at Arlington seem bothered by this. It is rediculous.

Thanks so much for the great photos of Ed and Don's stones. They served in Vietnam with my husband, and he's grateful for your kindness.

Father McGlynn
I found the proof, the other memorial is a cenotaph.

With more than three million interments, Calvary is the largest cemetery in the United States. As one might expect, it's home to many of Catholic New York's leading historical figures. Father Edward McGlynn, a famed pastor and social activist in late 19th-century New York, is buried there. He was originally supposed to be buried in the Bronx's Woodlawn Cemetery, and a statue of him was erected there, but at the last minute, the Archdiocese of New York intervened, insisting that a Catholic priest must be buried in a Catholic cemetery. (His statue's still in the Bronx, though.) In addition, there are countless graves for the thousands of priests and nuns who built up the Church in New York City and beyond.

LINUS PORTER BURROWS
We discussed this years ago and I agreed to transfer one of his two memorials to you back then. There have been numerous requests for transference of his memorials and if I am to transfer the second one it would be to a descendant of his first and only legitimate marriage.

Find-A-Grave isn't about building a family tree or a numbers game about how many memorials you can accumulate, it is about documenting graves. If you want to build a family tree go onto Ancestry.com. Nothing has stopped you from linking your line to this memorial and there is no reason to transfer the memorial at this time. As it stands now it is complete with links to both wives, his parents, his siblings and ALL his children whose graves have been documented on Find-A-Grave.

RE: Vitty
I you just don't seem to understand, if they knew he was there, then there would not be over 2,000 buried there. that are unknown. they don't know who is buried there, the fact of the matter is he was removed from the battlefield, this where the remains was placed. You contact who ever you like.

If you will give me his burial location I will gladly remove it. Until then it will remain. You will have to provide proof that he is not one of the unknowns.
