Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have enjoyed wandering through cemetery and graveyards all of my life. Now I can't resist clicking through findagrave whenever I can. In 1977, when I began compiling my family history in earnest, I felt drawn to the gravesite of each relative I studied, so during the 1980s, my husband David and I often spent our vacations traveling from one cemetery to another mainly in the Midwest and Northwest. In the 1990s, I organized volunteers from the Fairfax County Genealogical Society to survey over 350 cemeteries and burial sites in the county and oversaw the publication of Fairfax County, Virginia Gravestones, volumes I-VI.

Now that I have discovered findagrave, I am delighted to have a place where I can share hundreds of photographs we have taken of gravestones and memorials all over the country. My thanks to all the contributors who have built this site and to all those who have helped me since I have become a member.

RE: James Nutt
That's fine Judi. I appreciate the help. I did withdraw my request but if we can have the inscription written on the site I am happy with that.

Hello Judi,

If these Hodgeson's are your people, I would be glad to transfer them so you can do your updates in real time.

Let me know!

I don't know if you are a relative of his but...did you know that his grave is mentioned in a book about the 1925 tornado?

RE: John H. Johnston 117781601

I realized that I never responded to you last year when you asked if I wanted John H. Johnston transferred to me. We were literally in the middle of moving and your reply to me was lost in the shuffle. I am not sure why John H. Johnston shows up as 117781601- in what I sent and your response. Probably my typo because he is 117281601!.

Yes, I would like his memorial transferred if possible, and his wife also. I do not have any info about the other Johnstons in that cemetery, and will see if I can find out if they are connected with my husband's line. The names are not familiar - maybe some long lost cousins?

Sorry for the long delay in answering you!

Hello Judi
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you for the transfer of Catherine (Piper) Tate 76356114 to our care.
Thank you for taking the time to make her memorial and for taking the photos of her cemetery stone.
The effect of the black and white photo of their cemetery stone was wonderful.
Find A Grave is great site but only because of people like you.
Thank you.

Thank you from WA state

It makes me sad when a wonderful volunteer goes out on a photo request and there is no headstone--I hope you know how much I appreciate your looking. Being so far away of course, I have no way of knowing in advance. Your time is valuable and I appreciate your letting me know none of the 3 had headstones.
