I love doing cemetery photography!!! The older the gravestone, the better.|
Some of the memorials that I've posted, I have no relation to. If you happen to know of any further information, regarding the people I have added, please let me know and I will post any necessary or relevant info; crediting you as the source.
I will gladly transfer ownership of memorials (unless they are my family).
Feel free to use any photos that I have posted or taken. They are my donation to the expansive world of genealogy and reference.
Here, we're "Keepers of the dead - helping to keep them alive."

Dear Lori, Thank you so much for posting a photo of my paternal great grandfather's grave site. We have been searching without success for quite awhile and were told that many of the graves in the area where he is buried were destroyed over the years by the floods in Johnstown, PA.
Our family told us recently that his second wife was buried next to him but a marker was never placed. (they also thought there was no marker on his grave.) Her name was Nora Burns Hickey. We are also searching for his first wife, Bridget McCue (mc Hugh) Hickey who we believe died in 1893. Do not know where she may be buried.
Thank you again for your work and any further help!

Yes, I will do that. I am on another computer and it is not working well.
Thanks for your help. You are always so great to work with.
This is the memorial for my grandmother Rachel Nitch Worthington. I have a lot of info on it and hopefully you can remove the one you did afterwards.
Thanks for your help.
Tbe above is for Annie C. Roidal Nitch which I created in May 2012. Her husband, which you can link to, was also created by me, plus some of her children. Since it precedes the one you did, can you delete your site. I have placed more information on mine. These are my great-grandparents and aunts and uncles.
Thank you for your help.

Thank you for you kind words and for all you do, as well. When I'm done with this project I'll send you a copy if you'd like- just let me know.
Also, could you possibly send me the link again to the Decker Cemetery video? Sorry- I thought it was in my e-mail and I can't find it.

When you bring up your profile page and see the edit tab in the upper right, I'm sure you'll see that there are a ton of suggestions that I made for you to accept, reject, etc.
I'm working on a new project to try and identify as many people buried there as possible. Just like the Decker Cemetery, I'm finding hundreds of people there with no stones. I've printed off hundreds of obits and downloaded a huge number of death certificates to help prove who is there. I'm also trying to cross-reference each name to make sure they weren't moved to another cemetery (many were moved to Grandview).
This project will no doubt take many months, but I think it's a worthy project. I appreciate all of the updates for this cemetery as I try to figure this all out and connect these people when possible.
|Brian J. Ensley||RE: McCabe|
Here we go again... I sent a suggestion for Mary again. I found her death certificate and posted it. This says Cassidy as her maiden name, so I'm going with that.
|Brian J. Ensley||RE: McCabe|
I appreciate your help! St. Columba's is notorious for unmarked graves. I'm sure you may have noticed when you were there that there are large areas with no stones but lots of depressions in the ground.
Over the years I've found entire families buried there, none of whom have headstones. Right now I'm working on the Fitzsimmons and Maher (again) families and very few have stones. I guess this is my way of not letting them be "forgotten."
|Jan A||RE: Nicholas Drenchko|
You're very welcome. I've had my problems with Indiana Co having cemeteries with same names..so I'm used to catching weird things. .... Jan
