Bio and Links
Bio Photo Like so many of you, I enjoy walking through cemeteries (graving) and looking at stones and the dates and names that are inscribed upon them. Weathered, unreadable, and untended stones are a bit sad whereas older, well-defined ones brighten my spirits when I think that those souls are perhaps...less-forgotten.

I love being a contributor to Find A Grave. I am far more likely to photograph a marker for another contributor if see that they have also visited a local cemetery (or multiple cemeteries) to fulfill photo requests.

Take Care!!!

Hey Ron,

Thanks for takling the time to upload Warner Aylesworth's pic for me.

As I live in Canada trips to the States are pretty infrequent and as such I appreciate your work.

Have a great summer.

Once again Ron - thanks for this

They are both related to Norbert Beckey who designed the bridge which spans the Mississippi.

The Norbert F. Beckey Bridge, or Beckey Bridge for short, carries Iowa Highway 92 and Illinois Route 92 across the Mississippi River between Muscatine, Iowa and Rock Island County, Illinois, United States. Completed in December 1972.

Would you happen to have taken a photo also of this gravestone. Another one of mine that did not show. I will be happy to remove this one of mine also.

Would you happen to have taken of photo of her grave when you last visited the cemetery. The one we took doesn't show well at all & if you have a grave photo I would happily remove mine.
