Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've walked many graveyards, seeing stones in bad shape, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. This site is a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica by photograph for the future.

If related and can enhance memorial by adding additional information, please request transfer, stating your relationship. No transfers for collection of a particular family name. If you request transfer, be sure you are committed to a lifetime of maintaining the memorial. Sadly, a few of my older transfers are maintained by contributors who no longer respond.

When sending information to add, include verifiable source. Edits will be verified before being accepted. With quick edits, this is still important so unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source. Online trees, such as ancestry's, and family reports/books are not valid sources unless sources are noted.

I no longer add dates of birth calculated from age at death unless a photo of the stone is legible. (I got caught on a couple bad transcriptions which threw off the calculated birthdate).

Links will not be made to memorial in unknown cemeteries.

If you have taken better gravestone photos that what I've posted, please post yours and send a message.

I may try to contact contributors if I question an edit. For those who hide themselves completely by not showing email or allowing comments, my only choice is to decline and hope they resubmit with additional information.

Let me know if you have any questions on my listings - I love a good genealogy search and will try to help if possible!

Happy graving to all!

RE: Mary Young 98799201
Hello Family Tree Climber,

The information for Mary Catherine Baker Young comes from my cousin, Polly Raiser Kee (1933-2009) research on her family tree and from Gone Home from the Holt County, Missouri Historical Society.

Her date of birth is from me which is reverse math to determine her date of birth from her date of death of November 28, 1853 using "age 49 years, 3 months, 13 days" which is clearly legible from the photo posted by another member on your memorial.

Ancestry also has eight different family trees with the same information that I have and my tree is not online. I calculated this date years ago on a trip to Holt County, Missouri.

The information that I submitted is the information that I have in my family tree and Polly did research for her family tree for over 35 years prior to her death in 2009.

I hope this meets your need.

Death location for George Gill was taken from the Family History site on their SSDI entry. He and his wife Helen were both buried in Cumberland County. Any other question I will try to answer.

Can I have permission to use your cenotaph marker image of this veteran for our web site Chester county Hall of Heroes:

He is actually buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

Same person, two different approaches for references, two different photos of the gravestone by two different people. I just left an edit for Jan to attach her Adeline to her parents.
