Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in southwest Michigan and have been an avid genealogist for over a decade. I thought it would be nice to pay forward what others have helped me with through the years so I started fulfilling photo requests as of April 2010.

I carry a trowel and a small whisk broom with me so before I take photos, I always attend to the headstone first and clean it up as best as I can.

I edit the photos down, but if you wish to have the unedited original copies in a large format, leave me a note or send me an email.

If I fulfilled a photo request for you, there is no need to ask me permission to use the photos for your personal use. No commercial use of my photos will be tolerated. This is out of respect for the deceased and their living relatives. Thank you for your understanding.

I occasionally add memorials for others I don't know (usually veterans). If you want a transfer or a relationship link, please leave a note.

Hi David,
Just wanted to thank you for transferring care of Richards Memorial to me. Work on researching all the men lost on the USS Pillsbury, and linking them to their families and Commanding Officer, Harold Clay Pound Memorial# 56757279, is ongoing.
All the best, Cindy

RE: Memorial# 97917567
Hi David. Added the links as requested. Read your profile, and I too add more info on veterans memorials than any others. My Dad served 30 years, and I grew up on military bases around the world...

If you are interested in adding more to the memorials, please let me know. Happy to transfer as long as you are willing and able to maintain long term, and, if someone is a closer relation, you'll transfer on. OR, if you'd rather I keep them, I'll maintain. Also, if you have more info on details of birth locations, bio, etc, I'd like to add.

RE: Isaac Parker - Memorial# 45620733
You have been wonderful, I now believe there is no relation possible. And.....I just posted a map of the cemetery where Isaac Parker is buried.

I did find one William E. Allen, 1807-1877, in the same section and too far from Lydia, but not in any adjoining lots.

Are you familiar with Cave Hill's database? Go to You will have to register, that is free. If you have questions let me know.

Lydia Gibbs
I found her buried with other family and I am assuming that Eliza is her daughter, but I have been wrong before.

Please note the difference in her birth year, and stones have been know to be wrong also.

If you want to make memorials for the others and send the numbers to me I will enter pics for them also.
