Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001.

Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest contributions are Arlington National Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis.

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to without giving me credit. Simply indicate " 2001-2015 John C Anderson on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.

This love of documenting cemeteries has led to the formation of Instone Data Solutions, a company used by government agencies and others to digitize their old cemetery paper records.

I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.

ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]

PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I'm receiving 75-100 a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.

Please be assured I do most updates, corrections and links (via SAC, email or message) within a day. Guidelines do suggest a member send no more than 20 per week to a single contributor but have no problem with receiving as many as needed to get the objective accomplished - which is getting memorials, and the cemeteries, as accurate and complete as humanly possible.

Jimmie Artis, do you know anything about him. If he is a black man he is probably the spouse of Catherine Moody who is buried at Edgar Cemetery in Paris, Ill.

I have read your bio here at findagrave, and understand that you would like to be notified, and also see there is credit you would like to have included in the posting. Thanks so much for the help and permission as I move forward.

Can you provide an actual picture of James Richard Loggin's gravesite? I'd appreciate it as he is my maternal 2nd cousin. I appreciate your cataloging of the gravesites already listed. Thanks!

Interesting! I just wrote to another member to request taking over my Aunt Lydia Edgar Karger's grave. Now I see you have 'adopted' Col. Karger's.
Lydia was my dad's sister. I went to Arlington in July specifically to take a photo of her marker. Now the interesting part!! They are buried together under the same marker. His name is on the front; hers is on the back. I have pictures of both sides and would like to take over them and post.
Write if you would like.
