Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001.

Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest contributions are Arlington National Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis.

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to without giving me credit. Simply indicate " 2001-2014 John C Anderson on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.

This love of documenting cemeteries has led to the formation of Instone Data Solutions, a company used by government agencies and others to digitize their old cemetery paper records.

I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.

ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]

PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I'm receiving 75-100 a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.

Please be assured I do most updates, corrections and links (via SAC, email or message) within a day. Guidelines do suggest a member send no more than 20 per week to a single contributor but have no problem with receiving as many as needed to get the objective accomplished - which is getting memorials, and the cemeteries, as accurate and complete as humanly possible.

John Wallace Stonehouse
Hello John,

I see that you have many entries on Find A Grave but I was wondering if by chance you are related to this John Wallace Stonehouse #46023829, that you have listed.

I believe there is another sibling, a sister, who is not listed on Find A Grave.

Thank you,
Judy Newman

Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for posting my uncle's final resting place in Arlington Cemetery. It means so much to my father to be able to visit whenever he'd like.

Thank you for action on Clarence Mariet Taylor memorial
John, Thank you for re-arranging the photos on Cdr Clarence Mariet Taylor's memorial, as I requested.

RE: Lucinda Grigsby Photo
I most likely did that because the stone is upside down and I wanted it to be readable. I'll leave that photo, but when the snow melts I'll go take another photo that is more realistic :-) Will that work for you?

Sousal link for Clarence Mariet Taylor memorial
The memorial # for Mary Agnes (mcGeady) Taylor is 143243830.

The one you did for Clarence is memorial #49322973.

Until you wrote back that anyone can add a memorial, i didn't seem to have a sense of how to do it. But then I saw in my profile that i had done three in the past. (!) And then saw the Contributor Tools link. Thank you for the encouragement! And for adding the memorial for Clarence.
