|Bio and Links|
I am cemetery historian and history buff who was a docent at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta for many years. I love photography in general, but mostly cemetery photography and symbolism. I am also the family genealogist and am currently trying to add memorials to my family, as well as helping friends do the same.|
This all started when my grandfather, William Walner, would take me to Forest Lawn Cemetery in Norfolk, Virginia, while he tended my Nana's grave. My PopPop was terribly overprotective, especially of his only grandchild and the only place I could wander freely was the cemetery. It became a form of therapy to walk in a quiet place, read stones, look at photos, admire flowers and learn about history. I think of cemeteries as outdoor museums. To this day, I have no problem pulling off the road to look at an interesting cemetery, no matter where we are traveling.
I am working slowly on adding as many Jewish graves as I can from Greenwood Cemetery in Atlanta, as well as family graves in Norfolk, Virginia, Baltimore, Maryland and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. However, I am in no way limited in my cemetery interests- have camera, will travel!
I am proud to be associated with Find-A-Grave. It gives me great peace and joy to know that we are helping people be remembered and bringing connections and history alive for so many others. I know that my own family has entered into lots of wonderful conversations because of Find-A-Grave. We swap stories, look at photographs, and foster a real sense of closeness. Bless Find-A-Grave for making that possible!
**Am so proud of my kidlet! Welcome Noah Abramson,http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47835124 photographer supreme! He is out there at Greenwood using his photography as his Bar Mitzvah project. . Way to go, sweetie!!!
IF YOU HAVE CHANGES/ADDITIONS to any of the memorials I have posted, please contact me via my email. I don't always see what is posted below and I don't wish to frustrate anyone, myself included. Thanks! I regret that I can not currently be a photo volunteer, but hope to be able to in the near future.

The honour is mine. I am sorry for your loss and know it is early days yet in the journey of grief. I hope knowing others are thinking of you, your family and praying for your sister-in-law that you may find some comfort in your sorrow. God Bless.

The Jewish question is something that has always been a mystery to us. There are four Love's buried outside of the Jewish section but not far away. My grandfather looked Jewish but his mother Louisa Davis Smith Love who is buried beside her son never let anyone know about her husband Eugene Emil Love.
My grandmother, Mary Lee Vest Love, never knew anything about the Love family. My great grandfather Eugene Emil Love died under mysterious circumstances. We were told he was killed in a hunting accident but no details were told. His only surviving child, Robert Foote Love committed suicide. Would he be allowed in the Jewish section because of that? My grandmother was left with no money to buy a plot for her mother-in-law, Louisa Davis Smith Love, so she was buried in what would have been my grandmother's plot. I have no idea about the other two Loves buried in the same area.
As a child we made regular visits to put flowers on the graves of my grandfather and great grandmother. My sister and I, children at the time, would go into the Jewish section which was really near the plots of the family. The Jewish section was beautiful and many had pictures covered in curved glass of the person buried there. If I can find out when Eugene Emil Love died I may be able to continue the family tree. I just can't find a thing in any records.
The only boy of Robert Foote Love was named for his father and he also committed suicide and killed his wife. I don't know where he is buried.
Thanks you for getting in touch with me.

Not sure of what tombstones you refer to? I have a few left as you first walk in to right? Hope to get them next trip. Some tombstones were to hard to read. If anyting was readable I posted that.
Are you an Abramson? We have that name in our tree. Anna Lax 1868 married Wm Lewinson Anna father was Barney Lax/Lox & mother Zolte Abramson. Any connection? You did see Sam & Hattie right? Karyn

Anna Blumberg was my husband's grandmother. Esther was my husband Sam Kofsky's mother; Leon his uncle. The photo of Leon and Esther was taken at Omni Hotel in Norfolk at Thanksgiving one year.
|Erice Wilcox||RE: Cincinnati Ohio Photos|
At 77 years of age, I'm not sure when I would be in that area.
|Chris Nelson||RE: Photo Ceramics in Hong Kong|
Yes, plenty in Hong Kong. Some in Macao, Malaysia, Thailand and other places. I've also found numerous ones in Colma (San Francisco), Oakland, etc. They seem to have been popular in the mid 20th century.
|Austin Ross||RE: Your memorials|
Thank you so much. I was fortunate to know most of the people I have memorials for. At least I have many photos of them if not personal memories. They were and are a mixed lot of southern crazy. I remember family reunions with all of them and being in awe of the off the beam southern sweetness they all had. Im 30 most of them were around until I was about 18 or 19. They were officially old as dirt by then. It's through them that my love of history and vintage started. I'm very lucky to have many of their things in my home. To qoute Julia Sugerbaker from "Desiging Women", " in the south we don't ask if you have crazy people in your family, we ask which side".
Thank you again,

Hello, I just photographed John Lookatch (requested at Mt. Zion Cemetery in Wisconsin). Thought you may be interested in the following website:
There are more Lookatch's listed in their Obituary index, under Historical Records.
