Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was bitten by the genealogy bug about 8 years ago, walking through and searching cemeteries became part of it. I find cemeteries a most peaceful and calming place. I spend most of my free time photographing and transcribing my local cemeteries.
I also clean headstones, my passion is edging and cleaning Military Footstones in Honor of my father, my hero and my best friend. He passed away in 2006 and I miss him dearly.
I have added 1000's of names and photos to the North Elba Cemetery and St Agnes Cemetery in Lake Placid NY. I will be happy to transfer management to anyone related to the beloved who wants it.

Thanks so much for taking the photo of Private Dudley. He was killed in action during the breakout from Anzio on the push to Rome. It's especially meaningful to see his gravestone on Memorial Day. Thanks again! James Osborne

Thank you for cleaning the tombstone and adding the new picture of the Chauncey Benedict, Ruth Benedict and Donald Benedict. It looks very nice
Sometime when you are visiting the cemetery again would it be possible for you to clean and take another picture of the tombstone for Dorothy Benedict Swazey? I know I am a pain in the neck for you but appreciate all your efforts.

RE: Robert Benedict
Thank you. Did you happen to notice that I sent you a message back in February about Donald Benedict ?? He is the older brother of Robert Benedict. I know you have been hammered this winter with snow.
I am a volunteer here in Oregon and have not been able to do Find a Grave lookups for several months due falling the 4th of October and broke my leg. They would not allow me to put any weight on it until the day before Christmas. Doing good now. Have a great week.

Thank you so much for the picture of William Jewtraw's grave! There were two in my family and I was wondering, were there any dates or nearby relatives? It seemed strange to have no dates on the grave!

Thank you,

Emily Rollins
