Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I currently manage a memorial that belongs in your family, please ask for a transfer. Please include the memorial number and your Find A Grave member number before you send a message. I will transfer memorials, however, if the memorial is a family member of mine, I will have to decline. If you have information to add to a memorial, please use the EDIT tab and do not send a personal message or post a personal message.

I typically manipulate the gravestone photos, that I take. I do this so that the inscription is the best it can be.

I also search various auction sites for identified period photographs and frequently, if a memorial and identity match, post them here. I also purchase many identified photographs and eventually attempt return them to their rightful owners (family). I have been given permission to post auction photographs from Ebay by a few sellers.

I am a firm believer that every person, notable or not, should be remembered. I also hope that by posting the auction photographs, a family member may be able to retrieve their ancestors image. If I actually own the individual photograph, please contact me if you are a family member.

Please note. If there is a photo attached to a memorial that I placed there, please read the photo description BEFORE contacting me for more information. If you open the photo completely, you will see in the description of everything that I know about the photograph and where I found it. I rarely manipulate any of the auction photographs. What you see is the same exact thing I found, but sometimes in order to see the face, an image needs to be lightened or darkened.

I don't upload photographs found to make people angry. If YOU have a problem with a photograph posted, and I do make mistakes, simply message me that you would like the photograph removed. I really don't wish to spend the time with your issues. See my profile comments by Brian McCullough , if you don't understand.

I also began a Pinterest board for photographs with identification, something as a thank you to the sellers who are in possession of these photographs. The auction links are intact and can be "jumped" to right from Pinterest. Have a look. The link is my "home page."

RE: John Henry Sayers
Have you checked with the sexton or clerk to see if there is a marker here for him ? I looked on ancestry at the copy of the death certificate and it does not show a burial location. Perhaps his actual burial is in Pentwater or Hart, Oceana County. I am photographing the whole cemetery for the local genealogy society, so when I get information from the township or city, I will get back with you.

Wyman Hoyt

Thank you so much for posting the picture of Wyman Hoyt - he is my great, great grandfather. I am not familiar how the Find A Grave site works and just what you mean by Transferring the site. I am willing to help in anyway I can.

Photograph of Henry Newell & Polly (Davis) Ellsworth
I want to thank you for posting those pictures on Find A Grave. The couple didn't have any children but Henry was my 3rd great uncle. He very much favors his father, Thomas Ellsworth, in appearance and I can also see a resemblance to his brother, Horace Parmalee Ellsworth. I really appreciate your sharing those photos.

RE: Rudolph Webb
Yes you did respond...he died long before his family did. It was certainly worth my time to check to see if he was there. Have a great day!

Thanks, Norman, for that idea. Is there anything you want me to add to his memorial now?
