|Bio and Links|
Taphophilia (a passion and enjoyment of cemeteries) has been my main hobby since the late 1970's when I was a junior in high school. I discovered that cemeteries in and around Los Angeles were the best places to hide from truant officers. It was in these adopted sanctuaries that I began to appreciate my surroundings: the grounds, the headstones, the architecture, the artwork and most importantly, the residents.|
In October of 2010, I founded The Traveling Taphophiles, a group that sets out once a month to visit cemeteries. Our travels have taken us as far as New Orleans. I'm fortunate to have met others that share my hobby and to have forged some great friendships.

I much appreciate your effort to locate and photograph these markers. I regret I didn't know the graves were unmarked when I made the request.
Keep up the great work you're doing. Your photography is excellent.

Thank you very much for taking the photo of Adamson Warren Littlefield's headstone. He is my 2x great uncle. I am researching his grandfather, Hooper Warren, who wrote anti-slavery newspapers in Illinois before the Civil War.
