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.

Luigi Marchese
Thank you very much for searching the Rose Hill Cemetery in Thomas, WV, for a possible grave marker for Luigi Marchese. I will delete my photo request now that I know Luigi didn't have a marker. He was a retired coal miner with health problems, and he was probably too poor to be putting money aside for a grave marker.

RE: Walter Wellman
Sorry - Harrison Hazelett and Margaret Elizabeth Lockhart are Myrtle Hazelett Wellman's parents. I must have thought I was on her memorial.

My apologies and thanks for asking!

Happy Holidays!

RE: Geraldine Lee Coleman Pierce
Thank you! I have contacted the person and asked them to copy the info. Once done, I will delete the duplicate.

Rose Hill - A lot of my family is buried there. We have made several trips there over the years. It breaks my heart that some of the markers are in deplorable condition.

Thanks again!

Geraldine Lee Coleman Pierce
Hello. You had left me a message that my memorial appears to be a duplicate. I have looked through Find A Grave for another Geraldine Pierce with same dates and do not see any other but mine. If this is a duplicate can you please tell me the ID of the other one so I can make sure all information matches before I delete?

Stacie Lane
Major Harvey Lane (1926 - 2007)

Find A Grave contributor Candie Freeman has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Major Lane.

Their suggestion:
Stacey is not this person's spouse, rather she is his mother. His father is Roy L. Lane who died in 1959 and also buried in Spring Hill. Can you fix the links and add Stacey as Roy's wife and both to this person as his parents?
