Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 73 and I have been a find a grave volunteer for a short time. I went to the Pate cemetery where the judge that heard Abraham Lincoln first court case rests. I have pictures of two War of 1812 soldiers, at least one Revolutionary War veteran, and several Civil War soldiers. I even found the grave of Patrick Henry's granddaughter. It is an adventure in history that isn't in the history books. My wife Carol goes with me and finds many of the requested stones first. Thank you find a grave!

RE: working on project cems
Currently finishing pics at Ebenezer in Hatfield. And working on Maple Grove Boonville pic requests. There's 2 of us working on all of Spencer County. You can save yourself time by not searching for cem's since we have all the info. We already pd for copies of records from libraries & I can send to you thru email. But 1st you & I need to coordinate where we go. I can let you know which ones are still needed. My part of our project is to finish cem's in LUCE TWP. Whatever pics I take at these cem's are for findagrave if need & for the other member to put on Spencer County web site (genwebspencercountycemeteriesproject). Get in touch with me thru email (now have address showing on my acct) & I can tell you more details. I need to sign off now & will ck back 5/10/14. Thanks! PS: I need camera tips for my new camera that I'm still learning abt. The pics have a slight "blur" after posted but my old cam. didn't do that. Thanks again! Donna

RE: Richard Oskins
Thanks so much Wayne. You have definitely gone above and beyond the call of duty on this. When looking for graves, unfortunately, there are always some that will never be found. Thanks again.

RE: working on project cems
I was thinking the same thing. Was wanting to ask you to help me since you take good pics and they are of the whole stone like I do. Seems there are only a few of us doing that. We can communicate abt this thru my email posted on my acct. So let me know when you are able to get out to a cem. I've not been back out since we met. Waiting for above freezing temps so I can brush off grass clippings that are frozen to some stones. Thanks!

RE: birth
Wayne, yes I saw that but I'm unable to change is because I don't manage that Memorial.

Hi - We met at the cemetery today. Since i knew you took a pic, i was going to unclaim the pic request. But you posted the pic before i could change it. For future reference - please note that we aren't supposed to post pictures for pic requests that someone else has claimed. Also note that Lewis has 2 mem pgs and one pg already had a pic. Tho yours is a better one - you may want to post it to the 2007 mem pg also. I'm hoping that eventually I'll be able to send edit requests for all the mem pgs that a stone was not found - for cem's i've taken pics of every stone. This will prevent a lot of time and expense on gas. dg
