Bio Photo I am a new member of Find a Grave, but as the weather improves here, I plan to get more involved with adding photos and some obits for my area, but predominately Bonaparte Cemetery. I will be happy to try and fill requests for other Van Buren county tombstone photo.

Jean, Thank you again from both my father and I for taking the time to respond to our emails regarding the location of my father's grandparents grave. Since he had never seen the headstone, it meant the world to him. My grandmother bought that headstone with her life savings. It was wonderful to meet you in your shop and be able to express our gratitude personally. You have inspired me to become a findagrave volunteer. Thank you so much for maintaining this memorial for us.

Thank you for the photo. Also, thank you for letting me know of my mistake in putting the Cummings burial location in this cemetery. I have removed them and will research where I went wrong, and possibly where they could be!
