Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

I've been working on genealogy for about 10 years now. I stumbled upon this site and so impressed with the idea that I decided to volunteer and add graves as I ran across them. It saddens me to see the state of some of the graveyards I've visited, but I feel like I'm helping save part of history by photographing the stones that are still there. If I can be of any help just let me know.

"Genealogy is the art of collecting tidbits of the lives of those who came before us. And a genealogist sorts, organizes and nurtures this info for the purpose of paying it forward to a future generation's hands. The bucket is in our hands now, for a moment it's "ours", but the rest of the brigade is waiting for that pail of water to be passed to the next soul." Gerblady

if you would like a transfer of a memorial, please use the "edit" button on the memorial and state your relationship. I will gladly transfer memorials within 4 direct generations. Others I will be happy to consider. :-)

Edith Lake
You photo request for Edith is fulfilled, but there are no other markers in the immediate area with the Lake surname.

RE: Issac Harris at Bayside
How did you find out about Issac Harris in Bayside?
The records for bayside are a mess with many parts missing. I was surprised to see that you even had a gate number for him.
Did the book mention an age or date of death for him?
There are 2 Triangle Fire victims in Mokom Shalom and Acacia Cemeteries which boarder Bayside. There is also a Titanic Victim and a General Slocum victim (possibly 2)

RE: Florence Lake Owens
That's sad...but at least you found them both!

Unfortunately, this is the reason I'm in Florida:

IMO, no one in their right mind would come here in summer unless they had to -- LOL!

RE: Florence Lake Owens
Unfortunately, my feeble brain doesn't remember, LOL!

However, I found this death certificate at FamilySearch that looks to be the right one:,285475601

I'm out of town (Florida) at the moment, but Woodlawn Cemetery is very good about giving information to folks if they have a name and dod. You might give them a call about Edith Lake and get a plot location from them.

Wonder if she was divorced from Arthur, since his obit didn't mention being survived by a wife?

Hope this helps!

RE: Issac Harris at Bayside
There is nothing at all wrong with your listing. I just thought you might have been a relative that the family didnt know about. I list people on Find A Grave also, mainly people who I did repair work on their stones or mausoleums.

Issac Harris is mentioned in a book?

RE: Issac Harris at Bayside
I am curious, ho did you come up with his name?
Added by ntatap on Jul 09, 2014 4:37 PM
RE: Issac Harris at Bayside
I volunteer at the cemetery he is buried in and I know members of his family.
