Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001.

Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest contributions are Arlington National Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis.

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to ancestry.com without giving me credit. Simply indicate " 2001-2016 John C Anderson on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.

This love of documenting cemeteries has led to the formation of Instone Data Solutions, a company used by government agencies and others to digitize their old cemetery paper records.

I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.

ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]

PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I'm receiving 75-100 a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.

Please be assured I do most updates, corrections and links (via SAC, email or message) within a day. Guidelines do suggest a member send no more than 20 per week to a single contributor but have no problem with receiving as many as needed to get the objective accomplished - which is getting memorials, and the cemeteries, as accurate and complete as humanly possible.

John - Thank you so much for your speedy processing of the edits I requested. I did mess up, not sure where I got Illinois so you will see I have requested another edit for Margaret. You are very much appreciated. People like you help make our heritage available to others. Thanks again! Cherry Lea

Donald Judd Sullivan II 5841896
Hello,

I was in Forest Home Cemetery in Montcalm Michigan today. I randomly photographed a few headstones. When adding them, I noticed you posted the wrong photo for Donald Judd Sullivan II 5841896. It was his fathers headstone. I posted my photos to both. I think your photo of the elder Sullivan is better than mine so hopefully you can move yours to his, and I will remove mine.

I m hoping you may be able to tell me all transcription on the headstone for Andrew Baker (d.Feb. 7, 1907. Find A Grave # 45865678) This could be extremely helpful in my genealogy IF I have the right Andrew Baker. Thank you for all you do.

William Clayton Webb
John,

I would like permission to post your photo of William Clayton Webb's memorial in Arlington Cemetery [49335262] on the memorial created for him by his parents in Seneca, SC (#49335262). That marker references his burial in Arlington Cemetery [OR you could post it] and his brother's death at sea. Thanks. Frank

Thank you John!
I appreciate your doing the edits as quickly as you have! I hadn't realized how many of my family members were interred in Arlington. What a humbling experience to be sure. Have a wonderful day and thank you again John. ~Berta Pep
