Bio and Links
I first started working on my family's history about 16 years ago. I soon found out that you can't know about your family unless you know the history of the areas they lived in. I have spent hours in cemeteries (including on my honeymoon). I have pictures of the plots I have posted. I don't post unless I have actually seen the plot. If you are interested in any of the families let me know and I can send you the links to the pictures. They are on several different sites.

As for photo permission. As long as I am given credit for the photograph I allow use outside of find-a-grave.

I have NO IDEA how that other bio was added to one of my memorials!! IF I had added it, I could take off the "bio by" when I took off the bio she added, but it would NOT come off, which leads me to HOW DID SHE ADD IT? Does she have "ins" with a f-a-g official? NO CLUE, but I added what you left on the flower as I know who else is in that cem and his sister in law is there.

Thomas Wynne Arch St. Request
Hi Rachel,

Thank you for trying to photograph my ancestor Dr. Thomas Wynne's grave at the Arch Street Friends Meeting House Cemetery. From my research, it appears that it may have been part of the Quaker Friends custom to minimize burial markers; yet multiple sources cite this cemetery as the site of his burial, and most likely his wife Elizabeth. Do you happen to know whether there was any sort of plaque or group marker present that may have commemorated Dr. Wynne? He was an important figure in the early PA Quaker movement and a close friend of Philadelphia founder William Penn. I appreciate anything you could add. Thanks so much.
