Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Dave Backus, I created and co-own the Backus Family History web site. I live in Elmira Heights, New York. I am originally from the Oswego County, New York area.
You have my permission to use any GRAVESTONE PICTURES taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I AM GIVEN CREDIT. For commercial use, please contact me. ANY OTHER PHOTOS MAY NOT be used without WRITTEN permission on ANY SITE!
I have been doing genealogy since 2003. I enjoy walking thru the cemeteries and taking photos of the real old stones, wanting to preserve them, because someday they will be gone or unreadable.

My Main Line of Research:

My wife's side:

Plus many more branches. Most are from Vermont, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Pennsylvania, but family is scattered thru out the United States, Canada and England.

While many of my memorials ARE related to me, there are quite a few that are not. I have no problem transferring the non related memorials to family, it doesn't have to be by the FAG guide lines. All you have to do is ask! If you do not get the transfer it means that that person is related to me.

Also I know most of the time I do not get to thank everyone for the photos and memorials, and the corrections. So a BIG THANK YOU!

RE: Re: Edwin and Harriet Finch
My pleasure--it was a beautiful day for a walk. Just added a close-up of their marker. Also--Rev Elijah and Phebe Woolsey share the Finch headstone. I don't know if they're related, but I added memorials for them and will be happy to transfer them to you if you'd like me to.

Backus family at Woodlawn Cemetery in Toledo
I photographed a number of headstones for the Backus family today at Woodlawn Cemetery in Toledo, Ohio. I created a record and added the photo for Thomas and Tempera who had headstones next to their son Abner and Abner's wife Elizabeth. I then found that there are records for Thomas, Tempera and Elizabeth at different cemeteries. I am not related but wanted to let you know what I found.

RE: Adelia F Sherman
I had sent an edit for the dates to be corrected, as i had also found them to be incorrect.

RE: Re: Shute Family
Wonderful! I will do that. The ones I made were kind of grainy. I appreciate this very much.

I see you did, I'll email and see if I can't get them merged in the correct cemetery.
