Feel free to use my images for any personal use, be it here or to download and save for yourself, your blog or website, or to share with family, friends, the world, etc. If you would like a full-size native file of any of my images, send me a message so we can exchange email addresses and I'll send it to you (most of my images are large enough to wallpaper just about any monitor, no matter how big it is). If, for some reason, you would like to use one of my images for professional use (for financial gain) shoot me a message and I'm sure we can work something out.|
I have always been drawn to cemeteries and the silent stories they tell, but only recently have taken up photographing them. I've been an avid photographer my whole life, but never knew about findagrave until just the other day. Now that I have an outlet for such images, I will pursue it further.
The cemeteries and graveyards I enjoy the most are small, old, and as far from any municipality as possible. I especially love finding myself alone amongst tombstones in rural areas, where the stories are of pioneers and early farmers who led such difficult and challenging lives.

|Ubbenkotte||RE: Frederick Veldhuis|
I think he is the only Veldhuis on the cemetery. He didn't have children of his own. He married in Portland an widow with children and after her death a divorced woman with children. I'm very interested in him, because we share our first name. His original name is Bernardus Franciscus Veldhuis and he was called Frederik (in the USA Frederick). My grandfather Albertus Franciscus Bartelink was also called Frederik and I'm named after my grandfather. Baptismname Franciscus but named Freddy. We are all named after Frederi(c)ks grandfather Franciscus Veldhuis. It's to long ago, but maybe he was called Frederik too :-).
You're right Veld is Field and huis is house. The name Bartelink derives from a farm in Hertme, municipality of Borne near my hometown Hengelo in the Netherlands. The old -ink is typically for this region in the East of the Netherlands near the german border. It means son/daughter of or part of the family of Barteld.
Hallo PDX Loki,
Thank you very much for making a photo of Frederick Veldhuis'tombstone in Portland. As you maybe now, he was the cousin of my grandfather Frederik Bartelink. I hope an american relative visits this site too and has a picture of Frederick Veldhuis.
Regards, Freddy Walhof, Hengelo (Netherlands)
