For me, photographing cemeteries has evolved from an interest in genealogy, nature, and a quest for understanding life. I enjoy following the paths of my ancestors, searching for their final resting places. I also enjoy fulfilling photo requests. Finding graves brings a rush that makes the search worthwhile. Photo volunteer work is just a small way of contributing and giving something back to others. Cemeteries are by nature peaceful places, and I enjoy the peace I find while searching. Yet, my favorite cemeteries are those that are filled with activity, either relatives visiting their loved ones, joggers, or people walking their dogs.
Currently Pekin IL is home base (but I love to travel).

Greg, I'm looking for this man's wife. They had a daughter and she married a Stoehr and moved to Nebraska. Pretty sure this is her father as he was a Civil war vet and carpenter by trade. Is there any chance the wife and mother aren't not posted in this cemetery but the memorial there? Believe it's a Mary but not to be confused with another family there from Pekin. Can you help if poss.

Hi Greg, I suggested an edit for Mr. Dorrycott based on his wife's obituary which stated his DOD. I just added her to the cemetery.

Hi there - appreciate all your work - sure helps me since I live in Washington state.
Sarah Erwin Borden is not a Borden - she is the older sister of Wm Borden's wife. Sarah was a widow and came to the US in 1842. She lived with the Borden family from then until she died. I'm doing this for a friend - think she would be a ggg aunt. thanks again for all your work. regards marge

Greg - My mistake. The photo of the repaired monument is on his wife's memorial. Take a look at Marietta.
|John Arsenault||Henry Fisher|
Hi Greg - Thank you for accepting the links to Henry's parents. Did you happen to take a look at the memorial for his brother Nelson Fisher? You took a photo of his damaged gravestone for me a few years ago. Since then it's been repaired. I'm not sure how it happened but I'm glad it did.
Love your bio. Full of compassion and empathy. Thank you for all your contributions.
