Bio and Links
While searching for my own ancestor's graves, I enjoy taking pictures of nearby graves and try to focus on obscure or easily missed markers and getting them uploaded so they won't be lost to time. Being a military family, we particularly like to record military markers.

We also try to fulfill some of the many photo requests at the big urban cemeteries near our home. However, we will no longer contact cemeteries to get burial location information - we have endured enough sales pitches! Accurate section and grave location information in large cemeteries really increases the odds of the grave being found and it always helps to know if there really is a marker on the grave.

Marker photography has been a learning process and hopefully my photos have improved, however, it can be a challenge at times due to environmental conditions (sun, shadows, glare, etc.) and cemetery maintenance standards (weeds, leaves, debris). While we try to get good pictures, we are not in the business of cleaning or weeding markers. It does appear that there is a job opportunity there for someone.

It is not about numbers of entries owned for us, so if we recorded a memorial of a member of your family, we will usually have no problem with transferring maintenance to a closer family member. Or if you need a picture removed to add a better one, just let us know.

Remembering those who have passed on is an honor and hopefully along the way we have helped someone find the final resting place of a lost loved one.

Hi.

Was curious - I found a Frank Grigaliunas buried in Masontown Cemetery, Masontown, Preston, WV with the same birth year and death year but with a Jessie Lee Yoho. Is this the same man?

Thanks,
Corine

I'm sorry I just realized that I have not responded to you. After looking at the headstone and seeing his wife's maiden name, I can say "Yes" That Earle William Shaffer and William "Bill" Shaffer is the same person. His wife Anna was my mother's best friend.

Thanks,
Martha

You have accidentally posted a tombstone photo for Pepper on the memorial page for Thomas. Can you remove it please? You did post it on the proper memorial too. Don't know what happened but here's the link:
