Bio and Links
Bio Photo First of all, an explanation of my user name in FindaGrave. I have documented nearly every grave in my county and one day a police officer asked me why he keeps seeing me among the graves in our biggest graveyard. I explained to him what I was doing and he joked that he thought I was a "graverobber". That is how I got my user name.

I've been doing genealogy work for my Harrison, Stubblefield, Ford, Ames, Hill and Record lines (my grandparents) for over 30 years. I discovered Find a Grave during the fall of 2010 and it validated so much of my data, while also pointing out a number of errors if I used the dates on the tombstones.

I appreciate the fact that I'd only have access to this information if others contribute to Find A Grave. This led me to start photographing my local cemeteries and those in other cities (including many foreign cities) when I travel for my job.

Thank you to everyone for your contributions and I hope you find mine useful as well!

No one seemed to know where my great Aunt Ethia Bristow was buried. Thru Ancestry, I found a link to your photo. Thanks for all that you do

I added the parents of Wilma Dale Van Voorhis McNurlen to Horne cemetery with pictures of stones if you would care to link her to her parents William Van Voorhis and Mary Stathers Van Voorhis to her. Regards, Janis

Gilmer L Humphreys
Hi G.R., you left a suggestion that Gilmer's middle name is LeRoy. Can you tell me your source for that information? I've found a number of documents on him and never more than a middle initial. Thank you, Charlie

RE: Robert Fearno
Robert Milton Fearno is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Palmyra, IL, according to the IL Deaths and Stillbirths index. However his wife is buried in Asbury Cemetery, in nearby Barr, IL. The index for Oak Hill Cemetery located in the Hayner genealogy library division in neighboring Madison County states that he's buried in Oak Hill. I'm going to personally confirm this by driving to the cemeteries sometime in the near future. If I'd have to bet, I'd say he's buried in Oak Hill. I mistakenly posted his wife's tombstone on his memorial. I'll remove it. I'll let you know what I find. Thanks!

May I use your photo of this memorial in Houston National Cemetery? Larry is my first cousin.

Thanks so much!

RE: Robert Fearno
Looks like the other person deleted the duplicate memorial. I'll keep you updated, but it looks like you don't need to do anything. Thanks!

RE: Sunset Hill, Rockport, Spencer Co, Indiana

You had informed me that I'd duplicated these two people and for that I thank you! Not sure why I didn't see the others. Funny, too, because Karlene is related to me, so I don't mind deleting my entries; BUT, mine seem to have more info on them than hers, esp. Powell, so I've emailed her to scavange all the info she needs to add to her names and then I'll delete mine. I've already put my photos onto her entries.

She's supposed to let me know when she's thru with them. I'm not really sure she's still doing this, so if you don't see it done later on, let me know. I think I still have her personal email. Anyway, she lives here in my town, so I think I could locate her if need be.
Thanks again!

RE: Hovermales in Berkeley Springs
Hi Darryl, Wouldn't that be something.... if we were related. If your part of the Hovermale Family, my connection to them would be my Aunt Lizzie who was married to Kansas. You've been a great "find a grave" friend.... and now possibly a relative. Looking forward to what you find.
