Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been walking cemeteries for years and they always invoked many thoughts about the persons there. These are not just memorials with the letters and dates slowly fading but represent a person. Each one, whether living 1 day or 100 years has affected the lives of other people and changed them in some way. Ever watched a parent and child or a group of people - as time progresses they begin to act like each other. So in that way the people these memorials represent live on.

Please let me know if I can correct anything. If for some reason something I have posted is bothersome to you do not hesitate to contact me and we can work it out.

My goal is to completely photograph all stones in the surrounding cemeteries. Then add them as needed to the memorials here at Find A Grave. I have completed a few so far and working on a couple others. I do not create memorials or post pictures if a person could be living unless requested.
God Bless the USA

The Northrup grave enclosure
Thank you so much for checking out this site, and bringing your camera. There was a child Francis/Frances, but not being sure, I am not making a memorial, and this will leave Celia in limbo for awhile also. A good thing about findagrave seems to be the photographic record that it encourages. Stone wears away or breaks.
I would like to add a note that the third fallen grave marker was for Francis.

I found the beautiful pictures you took of the Thomas Northrup gravestone. Because of these pictures, I added his military service. (Thomas is the father of my great-grandmother's stepmother.)

Thanks so much,

Thank you so much for your help in photographing this headstone. I have an additional question I hope you can answer. Someone had posted something about their being the words "Son (or "Beloved Son") of Daniel and Rhoda Rundell". I don't see that on the headstone. Did you notice anything like that? I was hoping to trace his line back another generation when I asked for the photo.

Thank you again,
