Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired U.S. Naval Aviator, and L.D.S. Church member, I'm originally from the Richmond, Virginia area, and now live in Central New York State, near Skaneateles. My interests include genealogy and family history, photography, and the outdoors.

Family names of interest include Powers, Amos, Collins, Vernon, Nuckols, Slayden, Cobler (& var. Cobbler, Kobler, Keppler), and Atkins (& var. Adkins), among others.

If you see a memorial I have created, and you are a descendant, or a relative, who wishes to assume custody and management of the memorial, please let me know. It would be helpful if you could explain how you are related (OK, so I'm nosy).

If you see a mistake that should be corrected, or you wish to add additional information to a memorial I have created, again, please get in touch with me (NOTE: If your article, or addition, has errors in it, please proof-read it, and correct them, before sending to me.
I prefer to NOT post information from electronically-scanned and digitized transcriptions of "old" documents that still contain illegible passages).

I approve the use of photos I have taken for personal, non-commercial use in family genealogy records. I do NOT approve commercial use of my photos by anyone. This includes for-profit (subscription) genealogy record libraries.

You can send me an e-mail through Find-A-Grave by clicking on the "edit" tab at the upper right-hand corner of the memorial's page, or contact me at Mike13152 (at) yahoo dot com, or leave a Public Message.

RE: Hennings photos
I also found a grave marker for William Hennings.
If you want to request his marker I can post if for you.

Thank you for this photograph. It is a joy to find a marker like this one which has the entire family linked including dates through the tombstone inscription.

Hatch Tombstone Photographs
Thank you for photographing the Hatch memorial stone. It is a beautiful photograph. Were there individual stones with dates inscribed or just the one large stone. (George 131298457 and Nellie 131297675)

Hi Mike - thanks so much for furnishing me with the photos of my 2nd great grandmother and father's head stones.

I am not sure of the process and how you enhanced the writing, but it sure made it easy to read.

As I uncover others in this cemetery that may be related, I may put in another request. :) Hope that is okay!

I appreciate your time and willingness to photograph for others.

Thank you for photographing his tombstone. I know the older cemeteries are probably more work for maintenance but one will have to admit the tombstones are certainly more interesting than the modern ones. That is one awesome tombstone.
