Bio Photo Please note, I am no longer able to keep up with updating these memorials. I am not related to most of the people I have listed so if you are a relative or can do a better job updating a listing, please let me know and I will transfer the listing to you

In the past I have visited many cemeteries, and... if I had my camera along, I usually snapped a photo or two. It is possible that you may find someone you know among my listings... an ancestor, an old friend, a character from your favorite book.

Yes, I'll be more than happy to accept the transfer of the Wilders in New York. The family will greatly appreciate knowing the family is linked together. Thank you for doing all you do for findagrave. People like you are the ones who make it work.

RE: Saint Joseph Cemetery
Thank You so Much. I had seen that cemetery on google maps but was under the impression the whole thing was "Ravine Cemetery"

Saint Joseph Cemetery
I don't know if I'm ignorant or just having a bad day, But I am trying to locate Saint Joseph Cemetery. I was hoping you might be able to help me with the location of the Saint Joseph Cemetery Picture that you have for Lucas Co. Ohio.

I live in florida and am traveling through the area in a couple of weeks and would love to stop in there and take some pictures. I have some ancestors buried there.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you for posting Urbin and Laura Green (3255627 and 32556455), they are remote ancestors. They are husband and wife, would you please link the two of them. According to family records I have they were married 27 Jan 1858. Thanks.

Soldier's Memorial
Hi! The photo you took of the Soldiers' Memorial in the Spring Valley Cemetery in MN is very poignant. May I use it on memorials of my Civil War ancestors who are buried in that cemetery?

Orin Dority
Dear HistoryMom, You posted a picture of Orin Dority's gravestone. He served in my great great grandfather's Civil War battery. Kathleen Jones of the Toledo Civil War Round Table took biographical data that I had collected on each soldier and added gravestone pictures to the text. She self-published that as a book. We are now making additions/corrections to that and would like to include your photo of Orin's grave. We would like permission to do that, but also was wondering if you had a higher resolution picture (dots per inch)as the one posted may be too low to use. Thanks, Ted
