Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in or near Lafayette, Indiana my whole life. I fell in love with old gravestones when I was in Boston visiting my son, where I photographed interesting stones in every cemetery along the Freedom Trail. Soon after doing so, I began volunteering for Find-A-Grave, taking grave pictures locally.

While taking pictures of gravestones, I often feel the presence of those whose grave sites I'm photographing.

I'm a mom, a gramma, a gardener, an avid reader, and a teacher at Purdue.

The caretaker at one cemetery I photographed gave me an excellent tip: pack dryer sheets when you go out picture-taking. When the bugs & gnats start pestering, rub the sheets on your skin!

Thank you!
Thank you for the gravestone photo of Wm. Lonberger. I was able to match him to my info and found his birth and death dates.

He died in 1869 and it is marvelous that you took the time and made the effort to ensure readable photos, as the military information was the crux of finding his information.

His parents George Washington Lonberger and KathaRina Spangler are my 3rd great grandparents. They homesteaded on Nittany Mountain in Pennsylvania.

Thank you again!

Thank you so very much for taking this photo. My apologies that it has taken so long for me to acknowledge the photo or your very kind message. My genealogy life goes in spurts as "normal" life dictates.

Gooden stones
Hi Linda,
Thank you so very much for the photos you took for us! In the back of one photo, there was another large reddish stone that said Gooden with a lady resting on the side of it. Did you by any chance take a photo of that one? Not sure who it would be much clearly must be a relative!

Thank you very much!
