Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is David and I live in Steilacoom, Washington (Near Tacoma). I retired in February 2009 and took up geaneology a few months later.

Our grand children live in Hanibal, Missouri. We visit there once or twice a year and I take photos in the cemeteries in that area.

When I visit a cemetery to fullfil requests, I often take pictures of other markers and add them to Find-A-Grave. If you would like me to transfer any of these to your management, please feel free to ask. I will be glad to if they are not part of our family.

The Find a Grave guidelines for Transfer Requests is as follows:

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Please note that it is considered bad form to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. I have had it done to me.

Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

Use of Photos I have Taken: By this notice, you have my express written consent to use photos which I have taken for any non-comercial personal use that you see fit. You may post them to your personal family trees on any web-site. It would be nice if you would give me credit for the photo and say 'Used by Permission'. You may use them in any book you personaly are writing, but you must include source citation and 'Used by Permission". You may NOT post them to any other cemetery web-site. If you would like them added to such a web-site simply ask and I will probably do it for you.

RE: Clarine Conboy Photo
Thanks for any help you can give. I hope to get out there this fall and take some pictures too. I too can't handle the high heat and humidity.

RE: Headstone for Octave B Vallette

Thanks so much David for letting me know I missed Octave in posting photos to their memorials. On Henry he is not listed on the tomb and does not show a plot so I went ahead and posted a wide shot of the tomb and sent to Graves the memorial manager the plot info so she can update the memorial.

Thanks again,

Headstone for Octave B Vallette
Memorial# 90037863 for Octave B Vallette you have photo of his marker on this wife's memorial 90037849 Maud F (Stackhouse) Vallette.

Harriet Arthel Morgan
The next time your out at Montpelier Cemetery, Idaho would you check for a burial for Harriet Arthel Morgan, Feb 15, 1927 she died with the name Arthel, not sure of burial name. She was married to a man named Stephens. Not sure why the death name was Morgan. her parents William E. Morgan died 1948 and mother Marrian died 1932. Let me know if they are there then I can add them to cemetery. If you would take the pictures then e-mail me.
