Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love cemeteries! I walk my area cemeteries frequently.

Let me make this clear,
to Karen.....
ALL of my memorials are from my own family research, death certificates (vital records) or obituaries, but most are from actually WALKING & PHOTOGRAPHING many cemeteries.
Yes, I have WALKED & PHOTOGRAPHED nearly every cemetery in several counties. I have over 400,000 photos of tombstones! If my memorial is created at the same time you also obtained records, rest assured ... it was NOT from your research!
Stop with the false accusations & assumptions. Your work is not highly sought after, and it's definately something I could go get myself if I really wanted to. I can (and do!) my own research, I don't need to use or copy yours!
I have NEVER used your personal website or transcriptions for any of my memorials. Although I will verify my names/dates from other online sources to make sure the info is correct.
Also, REMEMBER other contributors send me edits DAILY to update memorials with correct names/dates, so some information is from them! Just because my information matches what you have, does NOT mean it came from your UStombstone Archives site, a site that I have never been to!

Please don't add "unknown burials" unless you are going to update the memorial to a proper cemetery within 30 days. I won't add parental or spousal links to "unknown burials".

If you see a name I have added, chances are I have a photo to go with the name. Use the "Request A Photo" link.

If you have corrections and/or additions, please let me know. I work very hard to make these Champaign County, OH memorials accurate.
However, please be SIGNED IN when you request a correction or have additions and LIST YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!!!!
If I have questions, I need to contact you....

If you are requesting a transfer of one of your direct grandparents, please be sure to include your ID# in your request!
If not your direct grandparent, I will gladly make your additions. Please try to follow the guidelines for requesting transfers, but other family will definitely be considered.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to.

Please don't purposely duplicate a memorial when you KNOW one exists but is listed as Unknown or in another cemetery. BE COURTEOUS and suggest to the contributor to edit their memorial to the correct cemetery.

Also, no need to send me info such as
"Mr & Mrs John Doe have another child, Jane Doe"
Or... "Mr Doe has a wife Jane who died XXX"
That's fine, but unless they have a memorial page, I cannot link them. Please create a page for additional spouses or children & link them, or send the contributor the link numbers. I can't link children unless I am their memorial creator.

These are the names I am currently searching. I won't transfer memorials related to anyone with the following surnames:

Jerry Wernell gravestone
Thanks very much for posting the photo of Jerry Wernell's gravestone. I appreciate it.

I'm writing about African-American men from Clark County, KY who were soldiers in the Civil War. May I have permission to use your photo? Of course, I will credit you if that's ok, and you could tell me if you'd like the credit to read any differently than Candy.

thanks again,

Lyndon Comstock

Joseph and Sarah Kerns
Thank you, Pam for fulfilling my photo requests for Sarah and Joseph Kerns. Some member of the Kern family had some wisdom about headstones. They put a number of family names on the same stone.

Eliza L. Garrett Jackson, Memorial # 63602276
Thank you for adding Eliza's memorial to Find-a-Grave. I have added a document to her memorial that proves her date of birth. I also have her obituary if that will help.
