Bio and Links
Bio Photo Annoying....the paper raiders that post absolutely NOTHING in the bio of their memorials, yet have a whole book about themselves on their own profile page. Yes, please, tell me how it is not about the numbers. I expect empty memorials from cemetery lists, however, when you have access to the info and choose not to post anything to save time, who are you really helping?

That's my rant for the day.

AND then there are some, that just don't get it.

Thank you so much for taking these pictures of my Grandmother's grave. We are in Texas so getting to Sterling to do that is nearly impossible! We used to go there at Thanksgiving when my Aunt and Uncle lived on Ave G. and hosted the family get-together many years gone by.
I'm also glad to see that Lundstrom's did find it and put on the Spring basket we ordered a few months ago!

Thank you again for taking your time and making the effort to do this. It is very appreciated!

RE: David Pittman
Uh-oh -- my mistake! There is another David Pittman of similar vintage buried in this cemetery, and he was a member of the 92nd Illinois Infantry. Good thing you nudged me to research a bit further.

RE: Hampton Cemetery in Rock Island
Lou, if you are anywhere near there, I got rid of the requests that were not in section G, the section across the street. We found quite a few down there, and I did not feel right removing those. I don't know if it will be a waste of time or not, but you may find a few. There are still like 65 requests left. We walked every stone, but were pretty tired by the time we hit that G section, and could easily have missed some. However, out of the 861 requests there, we found about 80, so it's not going to that fruitful. That section however was by far the best..

RE: Hampton Cemetery in Rock Island
We walked the whole place, it appears that they photographed the place, and had like 800 memorials they did not have photos for, so they requested them. After photographing all of the stones. I think we have all of the actual missing photos for them, maybe 60, the rest are either not there, buried or sunken, or have no stone..
