Bio and Links
Bio Photo Update John sadly passed away on Oct. 10, 2015 very suddenly at home. He was my best friend and my partner in all things. We traveled many, many miles to out of the way cemeteries, old cemeteries, and town cemeteries to photograph tombstones. John did all the work of cleaning, digging out (sometimes) and just making the stone more readable so I could take a picture.

I will miss him so very, very much.

A Thank you...
Thank you for adding Larkin A. Crutcher's death cert info to his memorial page. He was a hard one to work on and find any connection to parents and spouse as he was only married to Mary Esta Wingate for about 2 years and I still have not found their marriage record, so the death cert did confirm the spouse connection. Thank you again. --Candis, an Armstrong/Stump family researcher which Mary Esta Wingate is a descendant of--

Hello. My name is Katy and I am Candy's niece. I have taken over her job on Find A Grave. Her husband had a stroke a few years ago and Candy spends her time with him and his rehabilitation. I will share the picture with Mrs. Bateman. Thank you .

Thank you so much Diane. When there is no photo of the person you know this is the next best thing. Your work is invaluable.

Diane, I am so sorry you have lost your cemetery travelling companion and friend in general. There is nothing like someone to go about and do these very important works with you. My condolences to you.

In your work you have photographed the stone for a relative who is rather far out on the limbs of my tree, and I have no photo other than the stone. I would like to use your picture in a family history book I am attempting to compile, along with putting it on Ancestry. The information to find the stone I refer to is above.

Thanks for your help.
