Bio and Links
Bio Photo Arizona Irish Lady (ok, German, too) who retired from the Phoenix Police Department as Homicide liaison with the FBI. Moved into the mountains to get out of the heat and got bored quickly. Planted a garden, got some chickens; so while the plants grow and the chickens lay, will delve deeply into genealogy.

I got into genealogy when spinster great-great aunts (Bayless/Brady/McNeal) died and left tons of information that had been sitting in boxes. Bibles, pictures, books published by the family. WOW! I've since gone crazy with finding out all I can. (Our email name comes from the radio code which police/fire in Phoenix use for an insane person) If you knew our family, you'd understand that it fits perfectly.

Have gotten back to 800 AD on my Barnhart/Brady side (Ballagh-Barnhart-Bayless-Brady-Broyles-Erickson-Fly-Fullen-G'Fellers-Hopwood-Lawson-McNeal/McNeil-Million-Orr-Pendleton-Schulte-Seaton-Stokes-Summerford-Watts-Wilhoit) and am starting on my husband's family (Clark-Higgins-Hopwood-Klopfenstein-Lawrence-Lee-Stauffer-Sutter-Sutor) now.

Now, I'm into finding where everyone is buried and getting photos of the gravestones.

(I've only taken pictures of cemeteries in the Arizona areas and all of those photos are free for the taking. A credit would be nice, but not mandatory)

[Please understand that there is, undoubtedly, incorrect info on some memorials; possibly provided by family, those who've contacted me, countless other people; and was not put on them to upset others, nor to invade privacy. If you can correct them, please contact me]

I am a volunteer like you. The owner of this cemetery promises to call the police on any Find A Grave volunteer.
You can always request again, but I promise you that the photo(s) you seek can be easily and quickly and reliably procured another way.
There has been great success with the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society. They completed exhaustive photographing of headstones at San Luis Cemetery in the past 5 years, and they will share them with you.
You can email a request for a photo of the headstone(s) you are looking for, by doing the following, and they will respond promptly:
Address your email to
Put in the subject line
San Luis Cemetery Headstone photo

Give them the name and birth and death dates, or as much as you know.
Ask them to send a picture of the headstone, and tell them how you are related or what your interest is in this person.
They will appreciate that. This information may only be used in genealogical research.
They will email you within a day or two with an attached photo(s), if it exists.
I will ask that your request be removed (so others arenít discouraged), now that you have a very reliable and quick way to achieve your goal. If there is any problem, please let me know.
As a reference here is the website for the index for all the burials and headstones at San Luis Cemetery through 2010.
Best wishes.

Thank you for letting me know I hadn't quite finished this memorial. I have fixed it. Yes, she is buried next to her husband. By the way, he always went by his middle name, Kenneth. I also requested a photo of her headstone. I think I didn't do that at first because it can take months for it to be made and put in place sometimes.

Jeannette was my great aunt.

Jacob Barnhart photo request
I was unable to locate a marker for Jabez Barnhart in Section 58 space 477. There a very few markers in this section. I located a marker for Harry Martin, who according to cemetery records is located in space 473. There were no other markers around this area. If you are researching, the Spring Grove Website ( has an interment record for Jabez. You could also try the Cincinnati Birth and Death Reocrds 1865-1912 at:

I'm sorry I can't help you, I just photographed the cemetery in Frederic - don't know most of the memorials I've created.

RE: Grove Hill Mem Park - Hulda Schaal
I found Martha (Nelson) George as a child with her family in the 1880 Tennessee census which includes both parents, W.T. (b.1847) and Rebecca (b.1856) Nelson as well as two of W.T.'s brothers and their mother. They all were born in Tennessee with the exception of the mother (also named Martha Nelson)who was born 1818 in Kentucky (W.T.'s father also listed born in Kentucky.)
So,I'm thinking there may not be a connection to Hulda's father who was born in Sweden.
But it does seem a bit of a strange coincidence that Hulda is buried near some other Nelsons though. But it is possible it is only coincidence.
