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 " 2001-2016 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.

Thank you!
John, many thanks for the recent transfer of #49350341. I'm very appreciative of being able to now add information to this Memorial and now maintain for my husband's uncle.

Elizabeth A. Hornaday Grave, # 45973607
Hi John,

A while ago, you transferred the maintenance of this grave to me - and I see that someone has edited the information; unfortunately, because of these edits, I no longer believe this is the grave of my great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Walker Sparks Bender Hornaday. It appears that this grave belongs to an Elizabeth Long Hornaday. My great-great grandmother would have been born in Putnam County, Indiana in the mid-1820's, and this grave now reads that this person was born in 1854. At any rate, I do not feel this is my grave to manage - and I would like to pass this back to you in the hopes that one of this person's descendants will find this information and take the management.

Thank you, and feel free to email me through Find A Grave if you have any questions. // Debbie Prideaux

Hi, me again.

Can you also transfer # 49309393. Martha is my maternal great grandmother and spouse of Edward.

Thanks again.
Added by MMcNeil on Sep 18, 2016 3:47 PM

Can you please transfer memorial # 49309384 to me, please? I can only find the edit link on his page, not the transfer link. Edward Christian Schindler is my maternal great grandfather. There is missing information and photos I'd like to add and share with family who can not make it to ANC.

Thank you!
