Bio and Links
I've been involved in genealogy for many years.
My husband and I have spent much of our lives the business of cemetery memorials which we always thought of as helping preserve family histories.
We hope we can help others find their ancestors and this seems a great place to start.
If we have entered a name and photo that is your family, please let me know if you wish to have a transfer of ownership per the transfer guidelines.
To have an obit added to a grave, please follow the guidelines listed in Frequently Asked Questions - I will NOT make changes to a listing based on reading an obituary. Also please do not include names of current survivors in the obituary.
Corrections, additions, transfers, etc. please use the edit tab. (all other corrections or additions will be ignored)

Hello from Canada
Hi there. You added a photo for a relative: Joshua Bacon d. 1884 and is buried in May Day Cemetery in Riley County, Kansas. Can you offer any advice on how to obtain a death record for him? I do not see anything on Ancestry and I have zero experience with researching in Kansas or the US for that matter. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

That should be, "mine" instead of "mime". in response to comment regarding Vera Whittaker's memorial 83834201.

RE: photo size
I found 5 or 6 photos at Joy Creek that I had not trimmed as much as I usually do and deleted them since you have provided a sharper image. Are there more? I usually trim photos using Windows photo editing software. You apparently had better lighting conditions the day you were there as well.

Pre-needs are allowed for people born before 1931...but I will delete if he or a family member objects to him being on here. But then someone else will likely add him again...

Benjamin Franklin Werner
One of the reasons I ask is because I need more supporting evidence on this Benjamin. I have another Find A Grave Memorial# 31415404 that is also a Benjamin with matching dates and such, but buried in another location of Kansas. I just want to know if this is the same person or maybe they are two different Benjamin Franklin Werner's. Thanks for the help.

Thanks for your time and taking a picture of Benjamin's Headstone.
But I was kinda hoping to find more info that's on the headstone and can't read it from this angle. Would it be possible to ask you to take another photo of the head stone looking down at it when you get the time? Thank You So Much. I really appreciate it.

Thanks for checking the area for Robert's stone.
It's always sad but happens quite often that there's no stone or marker Do appreciate your efforts and the photo showing the gravesite area anyway.
