Bio and Links
Bio Photo For the past few years I have been traveling a lot for work. I have always been interested in genealogy and whenever I drive past a cemetery I wonder if I'm related to anyone buried there. Of course the answer is going to be no for most of them. I think about how many people are there and maybe nobody alive remembers them or knows that they are there. Sometimes I have thought I should go in and find out who's there, especially at small, out of the way ones that are no longer maintained.

Now I have joined Find A Grave and maybe one of these days I will go wild on one of those. For now I am just taking a few requested photos here and there at local cemeteries.

RE: Crystal Lake Cemetery--Fish Family
I know in some cemeteries you can stack coffins in one plot...but I'm not sure if that would work with the first burial being so far in advance of the next. I have seen where a relative's cremains may be interred on top of a regular burial. Not sure how I would find out as Avery's son passed away in February. Again, thank you!

Crystal Lake Cemetery--Fish Family
Hello. Thank you so much for the photos of the Fish family! Would you mind if I used the marker photos in my online tree, as well? I will, of course, credit them to you. Again, thanks!

Charles Koelmel
Hi Tom,

The grave marker for Charles Koelmel has his middle initial as T. Can you correct that for me? Thanks!

YFS, Barbara
