Bio and Links
All headstones photographed and submitted by me have been posted to Find A Grave, Ancestry, and Arizona Gravestones. These photos are intended to preserve the headstone in digital image for genealogical research. As a volunteer, I did not request permission to photograph from the cemetery or family who purchased the headstones. My intent is to provide a photographic record to the community not about numbers and ownership. No copyright claim is attached to the images and permission is not required for their usage. As a courtesy to existing family members, I do not add links to the AZ birth/death records.
As a researcher, I am in awe of the dedicated volunteers who drive hundreds of miles, invest their time in walking cemeteries in all kinds of weather, and then invest their time in processing thousands of photos for upload to find a grave. Volunteers generously photograph both family and strangers in order to preserve all of our history. I am grateful to each and every volunteer who has allowed me the use of their credited photo. To usurp a volunteer's contribution based on "family" connections fails to recognize the generosity of time and labor that went before the creation of the memorial. I retain memorials that I am actively researching, but will process any updates provided.

I have made the transfer. No need to give me credit on the photos.

Re: Francisca Villareal #63102256
You sent a link for a spouse for her, Jesse Greer (1845-1903) #95769504. I'm wondering if you have a source for this since he is 40 years older than her & his obituary says he had a wife & 3 children. Francisca was only 18 yrs old when he died.

Her birth date shown on her AZ death certificate is 1885.

Just want to verify this before I add it.

Maria Juana Flores - mother of Cesario "Ricardo" Chavez
Thank you for your kind efforts in putting the family of Cesario "Ricardo" Chavez on findagrave. It is much appreciated. He is my husband's gr-grandfather.

I would very much appreciate knowing the source of his mother's name, Maria Juana Flores.

Thank you,
Kristine Williams Quintero

I transcribed the obituary. Thank you for sending it to me. I was unable to copy it cuz of the red mark. My dad was an engineer for the Southern Pacific Railroad for 42 years. We were not poor but we were not rich either. Obviously, she had all the money from her first husband. Lucky gal! I spend all our money on genealogy research. Our house needs serious work but I'm addicted to genealogy. Spend money on death certificates, marriage certificates, obituaries, historical societies, etc. I am not only doing my line but my cousin's as well.

Thomas Martin McCreary
I found added an obit for him, did more research and linked him to his adopted father and his mother. I declined your request but after doing more research, I did do it. I'm sorry I didn't do more complete research before declining him. I added that his birth father was Charles McCreary and that Julius is his adopted father.

Moreno, Guadalupe
I think your submission is a duplication. I got a clearer picture today and it is for a male. The memorial for Paz is next to him and I assume that might be his wife. The next row up is a memorial stone for a Jose Maria.
So even though our birth dates differ and you know that happens often; it seems to be for the same person.

My Moreno was for a male I think as inscription says from wife, son, etc.
Birthdates are a year off but that isn't a big deal.
So hard to say if it is a duplicate. Why not leave both for the time being. Next time I am out there I'll try to locate the grave and get a better picture.

I tried to delete one of the photos as you requested but it wont allow me to do so. I think only the person that submitted the photo can delete it from the memorial. Maybe I am just not going to the right place I am not sure. Sorry I wasn't able to delete one of them. Hope all is well with you. Take care.
