Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started this hobby of mine after discovering this great web site. Many of you have sent me wonderful notes after I have posted or created a memorial. If you are a family member of a memorial and I am not a family member of the individual I would be more than happy to transfer ownership to you.

Some of you have asked me questions about finding a grave. I have some personnel rules when taking photographs. They are as follows...

* If there is a hanging basket in front of the marker which prevents reading the marker I will not remove the basket nor photograph the marker.

* If there are plants and flowers covering the marker I will not disturb the plants or flowers nor photograph the marker.

* If the marker displays a surname but the first name is Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, etc... I will not photograph the marker. It must have an identifiable name.

* If there is not a death date on the marker I will not photograph the marker.

* I do not make the assumption that couples names on markers mean they were married. Must contain reference the couple was united in marriage.

* I will not add obituaries at your request. Most obituaries are copyright protected. Please read the Find-A-Grave rules.

I will make every effort to find the grave requested and will send you the photographs of any questionable markers.

RE: Welcome aboard
Thanks Randy, just trying to figure out how to add all of his children. I have contacted to person who put up his daughter Clara ie my Great Grandmother hopefully he will get back to me on it. It might take me a bit to figure out how to edit this, but thank you helping me on this memorial I would like to get the rest of the information on here. I want to thank you for time you spent doing this.

Claude R Soper #132061960
On his headstone with 1#wife Opal Clark there is no death date but what I found was another burial for him can you check this 64598537 Forest Hill Cemetery Jackson, Missouri.
I traced Claude with his 2#wife Estella Redfern living in Missouri several years. She must of returned to Illinois after his death sometime for she is buried here.
I wasn't sure how to handle this with 2 headstones for him. That explains why no death date on the headstone with Opal in Illinois. so what do you think? How do we proceed to connect them both?
