Bio and Links
I sometimes walk a cemetery and photograph all of the legible graves. Once I've posted the graves, however, I don't feel the need to retain them, so I often transfer them to someone who seems like they are active in the area and might have a better shot at connecting the memorials to their relatives.

If you are related to any of the memorials that I have, please let me know so that I can transfer them to you. I will transfer to anyone who is more closely related than I am.

Please Please Please!
Will you ... or someone who lives near Thetford Center Cemetery, Thetford Center, Orange County
Vermont, USA - please please please take a couple of headstone photos for me of Joseph Putnam (died 1857)& wife Irena Wright Holdridge Putnam who should be next to him. Joseph fought in the War of 1812 and is also the son of Revolutionary War Patriot Reuben (& Hulda Cummings) Putnam. Mother Hulda Putnam also died in Thetford in 1816 and hoping she is there also. Reuben moved on to New York. The Thetford Historical Society says Joseph is buried there. I have had a photo request in for 2 years and no help yet :( Joseph is my 4th great-grandfather <3 - Thank you in advance - Kathryn Pitcher

Solomon Cummings' pictures
That is one of the greatest close-up of a headstone I have ever seen. Solomon is my 4th Great Grandfather, and you have my great thanks.

Go to her memorial page and click on the name Myra in the virtual flowers. That is where the info. came from. Perhaps she can help you. If not get back with me and I will see what I can find out for you from some of my connections.

RE: Photo request in Greenoaks in Baton Rouge, LA
I just called Greenoaks to get the plot locations for the open requests there. They want to charge $95.00 per hour to get those locations. This is a huge cemetery with well over 10,000 graves. Consequently, the photos are easier to get with a location. If this is your relative and you could call them a ask for just 1 location, they may not charge you. If you get a location, I will be happy to take and load the photo(s). Thank you.
