Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Carytown section of Richmond, Virginia, USA, one time capital of the Confederate States of America. I grave the area of New Jersey to Georgia, mainly looking for family burials.

My main interest in Find-A-Grave is that I want all of my kin represented, monument photography and portraits where available, and properly linked to their own. A large part of the graves I've posted are my own kin. And sure, sometimes in these cemeteries I'll see neglected or damaged or sinking markers, so I tidy them up, take a picture and post it, feeling like I might be their last best chance to be remembered to some future researcher. We all have the same goal, we're working for posterity, and I think this data base has become a number one-stop for researchers, and all because we collectively archive.

I'm a U.S. Navy veteran, Vietnam era, duty aboard the USS Canopus AS-34. I raised a family, but lost my wife. I made a career in newspaper production, am now retired, and enjoy volunteer gravestone photography. The best way I've found to get a readable gravestone photo is to redirect sunlight.

Anyone who wants to use my photos may do so, without restrictions. It's all for posterity. They have been posted here for you to use. If you want a transfer, simply ask for it.

Hello Rich, Happy New year to you, and you are well. Have you by any chance taken any pitures at Arlington, I am looking for a photo of the Civil War Monument to the 2,111 unknowns from the battle of Bull Run. Ted

Jones Memorials
Thank you for Felix Henly Jones, Ethel Colvard Jones and Samuel Thomas Jones III memorials. My daughter-in-law was overwhelmed to locate her father and grandparents. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

Moss gravesite photos
Happy to help. You providing the specific section of the gravesites did the trick. So many requets don't have that info provided and that's why there's such a lengthy backlog. Only family members are given that info, so volunteers can't do much without it in a cemetery with over 120,000 graves. Thanks to you, the Moss graves were easy to find.

Thanks for the catch on the county. That is what comes from late night genealogy! I have been in contact with Archie Colburn and he tells me you put up a lot of good pictures. Thanks for that. Ada Brown Gill was my g-grandmother.
