Bio and Links
While searching for my own ancestor's graves, I enjoy taking pictures of nearby graves and try to focus on obscure or easily missed markers and getting them uploaded so they won't be lost to time. Being a military family, we particularly like to record military markers.

We also try to fulfill some of the many photo requests at the big urban cemeteries near our home. However, we will no longer contact cemeteries to get burial location information - we have endured enough sales pitches! Accurate section and grave location information in large cemeteries really increases the odds of the grave being found and it always helps to know if there really is a marker on the grave.

Marker photography has been a learning process and hopefully my photos have improved, however, it can be a challenge at times due to environmental conditions (sun, shadows, glare, etc.) and cemetery maintenance standards (weeds, leaves, debris). While we try to get good pictures, we are not in the business of cleaning or weeding markers. It does appear that there is a job opportunity there for someone.

It is not about numbers of entries owned for us, so if we recorded a memorial of a member of your family, we will usually have no problem with transferring maintenance to a closer family member. Or if you need a picture removed to add a better one, just let us know.

Remembering those who have passed on is an honor and hopefully along the way we have helped someone find the final resting place of a lost loved one.

According to his death record you have the wrong mother attached to him. See his death record here.

Her name was Ardelia Roach. She was the daughter of Mandeville Roach and Rhoda H Shannon.

Find A Grave Memorial# 61994772 for Bessie Mae Wilson Jeffers
You have several headstones at Spring Hill Cemetery, Cabell County, West Virginia for my cousins.
Find A Grave Memorial# 61994772 is for Bessie Mae Wilson Jeffers my 4th cousin.
Would it be ok to use your photos on my Ancestry.com family tree? I will include (Find A Grave photo & permission by S. F. Evans) for each photo I use.
Thanks

Re: Baby Baugh
Re Baby Baugh #147768919

I cant tell you what happened to this memorial. The name was changed, the Baby is listed as a father to 2 sons that were born back in 1878 (baby 1947). There is a flower that has been left on 2013, I didnt do the memorial until 2015. There is a photo of 2 headstones named Otto, really weird. I went thru all the edits I had approved and did not find any for for Baby Baugh.

I have changed the name back to the original memorial, deleted the obit, deleted the Otto parents, asked the person who made the 2 memorials for the sons to please delete, and also asked the person who put the pics to please delete them.

This is very confusing - seems like it was merged with the wrong one or something.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
