Bio and Links
Bio Photo MY PHOTOS:

If you would like to use my grave images for any non-commercial purpose, I release them to you under a creative commons non-commercial license. No further permission is required or requested. If you'd like to leave me a public "thank you," I assure you that will put a smile on my face.


Most of my photos taken in 2013 or later have GPS coordinates embedded. If you want to find the coordinates of a grave, and the memorial does not display coordinates, you can check if the image has GPS metadata. How to do this:

1) Click on the small image so you get the big image page.

2) Right-click on the image in the big image page and choose "Copy image URL"

3) Go to Jeffrey's EXIF viewer utility.

4) Paste the URL (it should end in .jpg) into the "Image URL" field on Jeffrey's site and press the button "View Image at URL". It should give you a lot of data like this example.

5) Scroll down to where it says GPS Latitude and GPS Longitude. If the image has GPS coordinates, you will see them there.


My primary interests have been the historic cemeteries of Rehoboth, Swansea, and Providence, with excursions to Fall River and Somserset, and as far away as Maine and New York.

Of course, sometimes I make mistakes. Send me a correction by using the little "edit" button in the memorial. If your edits require more than a click, I may transfer the memorial to you.


I am interested in photography, genealogy, and history, not in maintaining databases. Therefore, I have a very liberal transfer policy. I'm glad to transfer any memorial to anyone who is sincerely interested in taking good care of it. I don't care if you are a relative or not. The only exceptions might be my own family members.

Prest family
Hey Ken, thank you for the update on Herr Prest. I have a question...When you photographed the headstones Of the Prests I wonder if you found any other Prests in the area? I am looking for my great grandfather John Prest 1877-1939 & wife Ellen Herriman Prest 1873-1947. His father Samuel Prest plus a few more relatives are there. My Aunt seems to think John was interred at Village Cemetery.

Hi there. First, thank you so much for all you do for Find A Grave. Your pictures are always perfect and I love that you go back and post historical information ... which brings me to my question. I'm trying to go back and verify and cite information you've posted on some memorials - for instance, William Blanding V (89362972). I'm assuming the image with his bio you posted is from a book, do you offhand remember which book it was? I know it's a long shot because you maintain so many memorials. Again, thanks for all you do.

RE: Susannah Church Borden at Oak Grove Cemetery, Fall River, MA
Thanks kickstand, If you ever go back to that cemetery could you take down what it says or try a different angle, though I don't think angles will help, it the gravestone itself that is so difficult to read.

Susannah Church Borden at Oak Grove Cemetery, Fall River, MA
Hi Kickstand,

First, thank you for sharing this photo of the gravestone for Susannah Church Borden at Oak Grove Cemetery, Fall River, MA, and for taking the photos.

Could you please add a transcription of what this particular stone says? It is so hard to read.

I believe it might say something like Susannah Borden wife of Joseph Borden, but I can't read it. However I need the exact wording as a proof of a family connection.
