Bio and Links
I have spent many years researching different branches of my family. I think Find a Grave is a great resource and I like to help.

I visit the cemetery and take pictures for all the memorials that I create. I try to take good photos with a good camera -not a cell phone- but it is not always possible because of the conditions, etc., to get a great picture.

If you get a better picture than mine, don't hesitate to let me know and I will remove my picture. I prefer to have only the best photo of a tombstone on the site in order to allow space for family to add family photos if they wish.

If a memorial I have added is part of your family, I will be happy to transfer.

Gravestone Photo Permission
Thank you for photographing the gravestone of Tiffany Alford in Saint Marys Cemetery. I appreciate it.

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Texas Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, James [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Thank you for the photo of Samuel & Nancy Fitzgerald grave site on County Line Rd. These are my great great grandparents. I had the site restored in 2004 and was concerned about its condition. I am unable to travel that distance to see for my self.

Thank you again.

James: Since you posted the photo of Anton's grave marker, do you know the name of his wife that is on the other side? I realize she maybe still living, but I am interested in knowing who Anton married.
Thanks, Sam O.

Barnett Family
Hi James -

I think we are first cousins pretty much unknown to each other. My mother was Marie Barnett Gilchrist and we lived in Washington State. She died in 1972 at age 56 so we were pretty much on our own when it came to knowing much about our Barnett family.

Thank you for the photo you posted. If you want to contact me through email (I think you can see it on here), that would be wonderful.

Take care -
