Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have walked many cemeteries in my area, large and small, and have taken thousands of photos that I am diligently working to get added to the site. It is a work in progress and one day I just might get them all posted! :)

I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send your info to me and I will update. I transfer all memorials within the four-generation rule. I do not link to "burial unknown" listings.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) without my permission.

Thank you for your addition. Norman was my GG Grandfather. His obit also states he was run over by a street car while visiting Chicago. Are you related?

RE: Thank you
I only have today's backlog. We were in Winchester which is kind of far away, but last time I missed someone's great Grandmom and wanted to go back and find her (we did!!) on way home saw the Auburn request and that's "our" cemetery so we pulled in, luckily on the correct road! I know for sure there are a lot more then 2900 graves there, just no time to check. Connie
