Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Richmond, Virginia area and have been taking gravestone photos for over 3 years after I discovered what a great tool a digital camera is for that kind of work. I am trying to photograph as many of the cemetries as I can in the area. I also take my camera whenever I travel and and usually end up with photos from some distant cemeteries.

I am the volunteer coordinator for the clean up of East End Cemetery in Richmond. Please contact me if you are interested in helping with the clean up effort.

The vast majority of the gravestone pictures that I've entered are of people I don't know. I've entered them to help others. If you'd like me to fix, add to, and/or delete any of your family members please email me and I'll make the change as quickly as possible. If you would like a copy of the original picture, let me know and I will be glad to email it to you.

If you would like me to transfer an entry to you, please let me know. I will be glad to do that.

Please request transfers and updates/corrections through the Suggest a Correction function so that I make sure I update the correct entry.

Note that much of the CSA related info for burials at Hollywood Cemetery was provided by Scott Hutchinson.

East End Cemetery
Is this East End Cemetery in or near Church Hill, Richmond, VA? Am wondering if I have relatives buried there.
Also, have you done any work in Charles City County? I have been looking online for my grandmother's grandparents for years. They are:
Braxton Joshua Haynes, SR (ca.1825-4/20/1880)
Margaret A.F. Parsons Haynes (ca.1830-3/30/1866)
Thank you,

I was just fortunate enough to see the piece on the great work you are responsible for at East End Cemetery. Having the inclination to thank you, I came to your page. I see I am late. Your efforts are being recognized internationally.

Thank you John, for being an extraordinary grave finder. Without you so many would be lost. What you do is significantly important. The result brings honor to yourself, this website, and the region in which we live.

Thank you,

Thank you so much. I have never seen our family plot. This means a lot to my family. I will be up next Summer so I will get to see this in person. I honestly can't thank you enough.
