Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is one of my passions. I have been helped by countless volunteers and am always looking for ways to repay that generosity. Findagrave (F.A.G.) is a perfect outlet for that. Thank you, to all my fellow F.A.G. contributors, for making this site what it is :)

This is my volunteer profile. The overwhelming majority of the memorials that I manage through the profile you are reading right now, are not my family. If you are related to anyone amongst my managed memorials, and wish to manage the memorial yourself, please send me a SAC request (last option listed) and I will most likely transfer. For my family, I have created a seperate profile (Bartran-Lee Family, #48769236) for the sole purpose of managing the memorials of my direct ancestors.

I live within walking distance from Bellerive Cemetery (fka Hiram Cemetery), and walking up and down the rows is where most of my memorials and photographs come from. Most of the grave markers in Bellerive are flat, so it's great exercise to search for someone's marker, which allows my genealogy obsession to have multiple benefits. I do avoid contact with the cemetery office as I know other F.A.G. volunteers have been charged $10 per look-up when asking for a burial location. I also try my best to respect the privacy of others I encounter there.

I want every memorial I have added to contain the most complete and accurate information available. I also strive to protect the privacy of the living. If there is not a death date apparent on a grave marker, and the individual would be younger than 110 years, I will NOT add a memorial for that person, unless I am able to locate an obituary or other documented proof that the person is deceased. Bellerive Cemetery does have a number of pre-need markers placed. If a marker contains at least one person's information with a death date, I will add a memorial for only the deceased. I will not edit the photograph to remove any living person's information.

Have fun, and be safe out there!

RE: Charles Horel
Hi Claire, I didn't mean to imply that you had a problem. I only worded it that way to direct you to Charles Horel's search. I very much appreciate all Find A Grave volunteers (myself included) and thank you in advance for a photo. Thanks much, Doug

Hello Claire,
I received your "problem" report back on my photo request for Charles E. Horel. He is in the Mausoleum, Level 3, Grave 305. Thanks very much, Doug Stiverson

burial could be in an unmarked grave in Lowell Cemetery in Lowell, have been doing research on this for awhile burials that long ago are hard but, not impossible to find

RE: Calverts in Bellerive Cemetery
Thank you Claire! Yes - I definitely would like Helen's memorial transferred. I will check to see what other family members are buried there and let you know. Thanks again!

RE: David Rood
I do not have any information on where his burial plot is. My guess would be where the most recent burials have taken place as I do not believe he had the plot for a very long time, a couple of years at the longest and maybe as little as six months. I appreciate your effort in taking the photo as he was a longtime friend of mine.
