Bio and Links
Bio Photo After my wife passed away I got interested in cemeteries. I have visited many different ones. I have photographed many markers and memorials with special attention to the older ones and the ones that seemed interesting visually. Many of these photos can be seen on Flickr. Most of the cemeteries I have visited have been near Chicago and Milwaukee, but also some in Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, Florida, and Maryland. Most of them have not as yet been added to Findagrave. If you see any that you'd like to have added, let me know.

Thank you so much for posting this on Benjamen Jewett. We didn't know where he was buried.
There is only a photo of the Cemetery and no photo of his headstone. Does this mean there is no headstone?
Thank you for any information you can give me.

RE: Error Corrected
Not a problem. Thanks for deleting. I do understand about the confusion. It took me to have both maps to figure out where it started and the other one ended.

Clara and Charles Ingalls
You have the memorials for Clara and Charles Ingalls listed in the wrong cemetery. They are in the Oakwood Cemetery in Waukegan and there are already memorials and photos for them there. Thanks.

Horatio Buell - St. Mary's
Horatio Buell and his family is actually buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Waukegan and not in St. Mary's in Waukegan. They share the same land but they are two different cemteries. I have posted the photo on your memorial but you may want to change the location of the buried to the correct cemetery.

I tried emailing you directly but your listed email address seems to be broken.

Thanks for contributing photos to Find A Grave. You don't have any copyright instructions in your profile there, so I am wondering if it is ok for me to copy your photos to my family tree? I use for the online version, and it is set to keep the information private for site non-members.
