Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thought for the day: If you're waiting for your chance to win the lottery, take a look at some of these headstones where the person lived a few decades, a few years, a few months or even just a few hours and then you'll realize you're already the big winner.

I've been doing general genealogy for a little over a year now (as of August '09). I get pictures of headstones here and there hoping it will help somebody somewhere and I consider it an honor to post cemetery information of the men and women that served this great land called the United States of America.

I've taken cemetery pictures in 30 states, Washington, DC and Canada and my favorite state for pics is definitely (southern) Louisiana.

Some of the surnames in my tree include Thompson, Liles, Southards, Chester, Stacks, Causey, Shipp and McDaniel.

The (famous) ancestor that I am most proud of is King Robert (the Bruce) I of Scotland.

UPDATE: April/2012 (I almost made it three years without putting some sort of gripe in my bio) - If you're going to ask for a transfer, please don't use some cheap excuse like, "I would like to link them to my family" or "I would like to make updates". Any knucklehead can do those things. Just ask for the transfer and I'll probably do it. I generally don't even care about the transfer guidelines. Honesty is more important. Just say (something along the lines of), "They are directly or indirectly related to me and I would like to have them."

Gripe #2 (July 2012) - Please don't post death certificates where you are supposed to put pictures of the person and headstone. Send a SAC with the birth and/or death information and parents if available. About the only thing left is what they died of and do we really need to know that?!?!

Sarah Wells Ellis
I can not find a source of the maiden name Wells for Sarah. Several years ago my husband and I spent a week researching Ellises in Wright and Texas counties. I have to think I picked it up there somewhere along the way. Likely from an obituary, I copied many while there but I don't know which one. Sorry I am not good help to you in your search. Do you know who the father of her husband William Ellis is? All I have on Sarah is that she died before her son James Luther Ellis in 1982.

I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Wayne A. Alford in Gracelawn Memorial Park (Memorial# 16586795).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Delaware Obituaries, where his 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:

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Hi Cam
I have been telling friends about the serendipitous find of your posting of my parents grave. A couple can help me with the "lines" or at least help me put them to good use. If it's not too much trouble I would so appreciate it if you might be able to transfer them to me. Happy New Year and ever thanks again.

Thanks for your message
Thank you again! I appreciate knowing the actual location of my parent's grave. Although I do appreciate your kind offer to transfer the profiles, I don't know what they are and since I suspect they might have something to do with genealogical research it might be best if they are left with you for others who might be tracing members of these two families. How fun to have the King of Scotland as your ancestor!
We spent a wonderful summer in Scotland years ago
when my husband was in training, on monies left to me in trust until I turned 21. My father was aware of his death, he died of leukemia. My mother was another matter, she went into the hospital suddenly
(I was with a babysitter) and died on an iron lung of polio soon after. She had done a will and so I was raised (and later adopted) by my father's eldest sister and her husband a law school dean and later Judge and moved to Chicago. My interesting aside is that my father Peter worked for William Casey the former head of the CIA and so Casey was my godfather (and a good one at that) Keep up the great work!

Pete and Louise Collins
Thanks ever so much for this picture of my parents grave. I was just amazed to go on line and find it.
They died before I turned three (my father when I was 3 months and my mother Louise a month before I turned three) and although I was adopted by family (my father's eldest sister) everyone is now gone that could tell me where this grave is. I did see it
when I was about thirty or forty, with an uncle and my Mom (my aunt!) but of course I couldn't really remember where it was in washingtib DC I have been very blessed in my life, and yet..losing my parents before I was three has always made me a little different and more attuned to the phenomenal blessings we all experience just being parents didn't see me marry, have children, have gorgeous grandchildren, thank you thank you thank you Cam for doing this..someone in this wonderful group of people will surely be grateful that you have found where my parents rest together...they beget much love and much joy!Q
