Hometown of Hammond, Indiana, near Chicago. I now live in Boise, Idaho. Since July, 2015 I've worked for Cloverdale Funeral home in Boise, ID. Prior, I've been a paramedic since 1978, as an EMS provider, manager, educator, and in communications. I've been photographing cemeteries and grave sites for over 15 years. I have developed a presentation on the art and symbolism of gravestones and cemeteries which I give through the city's Community Education system and at genealogy/ family history conferences, and to various historical groups. I also give historical tours of cemeteries in Boise.
PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" TOOL THROUGH FINDAGRAVE FOR ANY CORRECTIONS OR ADDITIONS. Requests to add obituaries to entries will have them edited to meet F.A.G. guidelines, mentioning no living relatives. If possible, please provide evidence of your edits. I've been burned a few times with inaccurate information.
I'm always available to photograph graves in the Boise/Ada County, Idaho and surrounding areas. My ISP doesn't send me photo requests for some reason, but feel free to e-mail me directly if you have any requests. Before you send me corrections to entries, please make sure it's my entry and not just my photo on the entry.

RE: Hello! There's not much you can do for me unless you can give me a new knee. Plain old arthritis has got the best of me and I'm seeing a surgeon in April to consider a knee replacement -- and I just had my 90th birthday!!!! I was wondering if you would like to take over the people I moved on Find A Grave from Boise' Old Burying ground to Morris Hill. I've had a very few inquires about them. I'm still working on a few projects I found a woman 0n Find A Grave who said she had finished her family trees. I didn't think that was possible. Wilda

Alonzo Cope David, Can you link Alonzo Cope (#7677670) to his parents Sam Calvin Cope (#155531080) and Lina Rachel Fox Cope (#155531362)? They are buried at Willow Oak in northern Upshur County, Texas. I will be adding other children of Sam Calvin and Lina in the next few days and would like to see those linked to Alonzo also.
I inherited Alonzo's sister's scrapbook and do have a picture from the Pine School in Camp County, Texas that includes Alonzo as a child along with his siblings. Pine is located a few miles north of the Willow Oak church and cemetery.
RE: Martha Vineyard Stark Applegate I'm sorry you will have to refresh my memory... If this is Elizabeth Applegate Stark in the Pike co Illinois cemetery...she is my fourth great grandmother, years ago I researched the Applegate Stark family and have established her family (father was Samuel Applegate - much confusion as to her mother's maiden name.) Samuel is the son of Hezekiah Applegate and wife Sarah "Sary" Brittain, my mother and several cousins, one is still living researched the Stark family to a large extent.
sorry for any confusion line is Morgan long md Martha Stark she was of John Pound Stark and Elizabeth Applegate
