Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an avid photographer/archivest, having taken the majority of both my and my husband's family's graves. We take (outdoor) cemetery photos from March/April to November or December/snowfall within an hour or so in all directions of N'east Wisconsin, incl: Outagamie; Winnebago (our county); Calumet; Manitowoc; Sheboygan to the East; and in the West: Waushara, and some of Portage, if we're in that area. Mausoleum photos, of course, can be taken all year.

NOTE to those requesting grave photos in Wisconsin: We won't see any ground-level graves until at least April, given the weather this Winter. Continuous snowfalls; dreadful, bone-numbing windchills; etc. Thanks for understanding!


Here's a poem that touches my heart. It is the reason we are in this service; for both the living and those who have gone on before us.


Today we walked where others walked On a lonely, windswept hill; Today we talked where other cried For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched By graves of tiny babies; Snatched from the arms of loving kin, In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay In the last sleep of their time; Lying under the trees and clouds - Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot; Who lies beneath this hollowed ground? Was it a babe, child, young or old? No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay. We had been here once before On a day we'd all like to forget, But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin The graves of ancestors past; To be preserved for generations hence, A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend, For stones sometimes crumble to dust And generations of folks yet to come Will be grateful for your trust.
When corresponding, please indicate the name of the person/people whose grave photo I took. Thanks! :)

Thank you for taking and posting the gravestone photos for this couple. It is interesting that he has two stones, one being military.

I would like to ask for your permission to use these photos (and others you may have taken of gravestones of my ancestors) in my family tree on Because the photographer has a copyright for each photo, I always ask before using a photo on another web site. I will, of course, put your name as the photographer and the web sites of the memorials as the sources.

Thank you for considering my request,

RE: Anderson Jeffers
Thanks Linda & William,
Yes it does help to get them straightened out a bit. So many Jeffers with the same names! :)

Do you have an site?

Also, do you have any info on Lucy A -dtr to Anderson & Martha?

If I can get all the children accounted for, maybe I can figure this out by process of elimination.

RE: Edward Novak
Oh yes, sorry. And it's a good shot too! But if you didn;t know, you can add photos you took to memorials someone else created, and your name will be credited below the photo.
