Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist living in Houston, Texas who is merely enjoying the experience of doing a bit of family history research as an interesting hobby.

While doing this research in cemeteries, I sometimes come across tombstones that, for one reason or another seem unique or perhaps the name is recognizable. I take a picture while I am there.

While investigating my own family history via church records that are ONLY available locally (not online) I am sure to scan an image of the document of my interest. When time allows, I review the other names (not my family) listed on those scans and try to match them up with those memorialized on findagrave. Sometimes that innocent record is the needle in a haystack that some frustrated person, far away has been attempting to locate for decades.

For those who wish for me to take a picture in a local Houston cemetery, I don't mind obliging the favor and will do so for Glenwood Cemetery ONLY because it is reasonably close to my home and enroute to some routine destinations. Those not familiar with our city do not realize how incredibly spread out and HUGE Houston is. It can take up to two hours to drive from one end of the city to the other by freeway, so I am unable to oblige photo requests for other cemeteries here.

James Walsh in St Mary's Cemetery
His memorial's photo capacity is full. Would you mind to delete your photo so I can add an image of his distillery on Covington's waterfront? Thank you.

Episcopal Cemetery
Hi there,
I came across the memorials you are adding and it looks like a new cemetery as well. I am adding some also but there is already a cemetery created. It is Trinity Episcopal Cemetery. There are several duplicate added as well. If you look at Trinity there's a photo added for all the cemeteries in this area and it says Trinity Episcopal Cemetery.

Flood Relatives??
Hi - I was wondering if you are related to the Flood family? I saw a few memorials that you manage from the Kentucky area . . . I am related to the Floods from IL - originally from Ireland. Would like to share notes. Thanks. armstronghistory@yahoo.com

Your Unknown Burial Listings
Without meaning to sound like a nag, I believe your unknown burial listings are going to cause some major headaches down the road as those of us in Northern Kentucky [and there are several] are working on photographing and documenting these cemeteries. If we search for these individuals by county or state level they won't show up because they're unknown in location. A lot of duplicates will result I fear, causing more work than should be necessary. Please know I'm not trying to sound awful I'm just offering my two cents on the matter.

Lemuel Murlin photo on eBay
Hey, Keith, thanks for the "heads-up"! I had never seen that photo before. Ol' Lem' is definitely a "star" in our family but I guess I'm just too cheap to spend $25 for yet another image of his mug. But thanks anyway! Tom

Thanks for the heads-up on eBay photos. We do have the photos of my two gr-uncles in our family archives, but do not have the one of Elizabeth Price Neff. It's very kind of you to take the time and trouble to notify me. Thanks again.

RE: Memorial #116585201
It is wonderful that the locals are attempting to reconstruct records of the cemetery. But that has no real bearing as to what is appropriate for findagrave. Findagrave is a registration site for KNOWN burials. It is not a site for listing all people ever born just because they must be dead by now. Again I encourage you to read the rules of findagrave found in the FAQ section of the site.

Ann Tinley
Hi For her last name I would put Tinlry since that is what you know. And then you can request a photo of her using Tinley as her last name and then make any changes if necessary based on the picture. Personally, my practice has been to put her maiden/birth name in the last name field if thats all I know until someone else provides additional info. Currently it appears she has no last name. If I were a photo volunteer for that cemetery and I took a photo of her grave as Tinley I would look under the T's and assume she had no memorial and create one, making an inadvertent dupe JMHO

RE: Patrick J. Buckley
Thanks very much for the interesting, historical perspective. I visited the Cathedral and read about construction of the new building, but didn't realize it wasn't always a Cathedral.

Understand about the Irish going to St. Mary's--also St. Patrick's (sadly no longer there). Thought mine would attend the closest church once they had little children with short legs--true--St. Aloysius even tho it was a German congregation.

One of those sychronistic events: Patrick Buckley bought his Victorian busines building during the Civil War and owned it for most of the rest of the 19th century. In the early 20th century another Buckley family (no relation that we could discover) bought the same Victorian and lived there for years. Their ancestor came to the area when assigned to the Union fort.
