Bio and Links
Bio Photo My primary interest is genealogy, so I photograph surrounding family members' graves when possible, even when those folks were not included in the request. Please feel free to use my photos in your family trees.

I am a retired English teacher in Austin, Texas. I am a third generation Texan if you count being born here, but there are five generations of my family buried here.

Please contact me if you have questions about any of the photos I've posted. For any of the memorials I've created, I'll be happy to transfer them if they are not related to me. Even if it is my relative, if you are a direct descendant and I am not, I will make the transfer.

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased loved ones is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us. Your time and effort are much appreciated; you're an asset to this web site!

Shirley, I thank you so much for discovering there were no markers for these people. One always wonders. I appreciate your work.

Raymer gravesite
Thank for for checking on the gravesite for Walter Raymer. I am sorry it isn't marked but not entirely surprised. At least I know. Thank you so much for your good work and efforts as a Find a Grave volunteer.
