Bio and Links
Bio Photo My primary interest is genealogy, so I photograph surrounding family members' graves when possible, even when those folks were not included in the request. Please feel free to use my photos in your family trees.

I am a retired English teacher in Austin, Texas. I am a third generation Texan if you count being born here, but there are five generations of my family buried here.

Please contact me if you have questions about any of the photos I've posted. For any of the memorials I've created, I'll be happy to transfer them if they are not related to me. Even if it is my relative, if you are a direct descendant and I am not, I will make the transfer.

Your photos
Your photos are well done. I especially admire the long shot of a grave memorial and the small white lettering identifying the specific grave that you add to your individual marker photo!!

Thank you, Shirley Smith, for taking a picture of the grave site of Grace Ione Pressley Jaquet. While I never met her or her family, she is the daughter of my Dad's first cousin, Lillian Fitzgerald Pressley, the Texas connection of our Fitzgeralds from Ireland.

I appreciate your time and effort and want you to know how much your kindness has reinforced my love of family history and Find a Grave.

You are welcome! His picture you posted is great! Several generations of my family on both mom and dad's side are buried in Greenwood in Minong, so when I'm "up north" I try to fill in the holes there as much as possible. There are many more stones then are reflected in the Find-a-Grave memorial list. Thank you for your work taking pictures as well. I've never seen anyone with so many volunteer photo requests filled. God Bless you. Melissa

RE: Judy Sumner
Thanks for the photo! That is an awesome idea to take the photo that way when there is no marker. What program did you use to do that? There were already photos for Clayton and Annie on here. They are related, but thanks for the extra effort!
