Bio and Links
Bio Photo For as long as I can remember my family has routinely visited our local cemetery. Young and old attend to the graves of our ancestors and reflect on those various individuals that have touched our lives. It seems to be a way for the adults to keep those departed individuals fresh in their memories and serves as an opportunity to pass on family history to younger family members. In our case, the cemetery is a very park like setting, located on a lake shore, and is a very pleasant place to visit.

Over the years I have found that cemeteries are an excellent place to take break as I travel. It's a chance to get out of the vehicle for a while, take a walk in a quiet setting, and to learn a little about the local area. Now, as I make these stops, I try to take random photos of headstones that provide a cross-section of those who are laid to rest there.

It is my hope that the photos and information posted to Find-A-Grave will be of interest to individuals who are working to document local or family histories. Please feel free to contact me if you spot any errors in my postings or if you have photos or information you would like me to add

Phoebe Turley Peterson
Mr Irish would you please remove the St Johns Catholic Cemetery photo from Phoebe Turley Peterson's site. She is buried in the St Johns City Cemetery in St Johns, Arizona Section #31 Block #8 Plot #2 next to her husband Bringham Young Peterson Jr. Thank You, Don

You don't know me but I live in Eau Claire and am very involved with Find A Grave. I noticed that you've posted pictures in Abbotsford Cemetery so I'm guessing you live around Clark County.
I am considering a major Find A Grave photo project in Clark County next April/May. It would involve 4 cemeteries and potentially 15,000 pix. I am trying to see if there are some interested Find A Grave photo volunteers in the area from Menomonie to the west, Phillips to the north, Augusta to the south, and Wausau to the east. If I have some luck contacting Find A Grave folks, Iíll probably frame the entire project in the next couple weeks. Might this interest you?

Thanks, Bill Hart

Eliza Izard Pinckney
Just a quick question. How did you know that Eliza Izard Pinckney (#13694396) was the daughter of Ralph Izard (#6915033) and Alice DeLancey Izard (#42626758)? I'm doing some genealogical research and would just like to know if you came across any strong evidence to support this claim. Thank you for any information you can provide.

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Thomas H Lutsey memorials
Please be advised you created two memorials for the same person (#17884063 and #17884066), Thomas Henry Lutsey, in Rest Haven Cemetery, Shawano Co., MI. One has him connected to his parents, the other to his wife and children, so if you delete the one without the gravestone photo (#1774063) you will want to recreate the links to his parents found on that memorial.
