May I use your photo of the cemetery stone on my private family tree? My 4X great grandmother is buried there but another find a grave member recently tried to fulfill my photo request for her headstone but was unable to find a legible stone for her. Your photo would be all I have. I always give credit to the members who generously allow me to use their photos... thanks so much and have a nice weekend.
