Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Ashtabula, Ohio and one of my favorite pastimes is exploring and taking pictures at local cemeteries, which I feel are the most peaceful and beautiful places in existence--I have hundreds of cemetery pictures on my Facebook page, including those of individuals of historic significance to the area. I enjoy taking pictures in general, but cemeteries are my favorite subject matter.

I also have a strong interest in Genealogy and have ties to Davidson, Cook, Crofoot, Mikkonen, & McKay, among others. My personal research started in a cemetery and I found the process to be very enjoyable and fulfilling, so find this site to be a wonderful way of sharing that experience with others and helping them with that process. As of a few days into my membership, I found information about and pictures of family members I previously did not have and even "met" a couple distant relatives who were the originators of that information and pictures on those family members' memorial pages.

Since joining this site, I've been taking the time to take pictures at local cemeteries and focusing on smaller graves that I think may not be on here and then adding them when needed or appropriate. I've also been trying to fulfill photo requests in my ventures, being sure to bring a list with me and taking pictures of the graves on the list that I happen to stumble upon while wandering.

Consider this as permission to use any of the pictures I post at your will--though I would like credit if possible and when appropriate. Also, I will freely and gladly transfer management of any memorials that someone else would like to manage for those individuals I have no personal attachment to (which is the case for most of those I've added).

Happy searching!

Scott W Eastlick photo
Thanks so much for posting the photo! It appears Scott's first wife was Ada, then some time later he married Marie. Do you know Marie's last name? Are you a relative?
Thanks again,
Leslie Lewis

Dear Ann-
Thank you so much for sending me photos of my maternal Great Grandparents @ Chestnut Cemetary in Ashtabula. My Mom never got to met them beccause they died around the time of her birth, I printed off photos and gave them to my Mom and she really appreciated it. Hopefully this summer I can take her there in person to see her Grand parents. Again, thank you for caring and may God bless you and your family.
Respectfully,
Janie M

Thank you so very much Ann for the photo of Uncle Will's headstone! My Mother is 80 years old and she was hoping to see a picture of her Uncle's monument. Your time and thoughtfulness have made both of us very happy! God Bless you Ann!
Thank you
