My interest of documenting cemeteries began with a request to help on an Eagle Scout project in 2001. |
Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!
I've documented many Howard Co. Indiana and Montclam Co. Michigan cemeteries with thousands of tombstone photos. My largest contributions are Arlington National Cemetery and Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis.
I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to ancestry.com without giving me credit. Simply indicate "© 2001-2016 John C Anderson on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated.
This love of documenting cemeteries has led to the formation of Instone Data Solutions, a company used by government agencies and others to digitize their old cemetery paper records.
I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to other memorials.
ALL REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. [Most memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on the 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.]
PLEASE NOTE: I'm very grateful for corrections and additional information, but I'm receiving 75-100 a day and cannot reply to everyone. Please check back to ensure accuracy of memorial page updates.
Please be assured I do most updates, corrections and links (via SAC, email or message) within a day. Guidelines do suggest a member send no more than 20 per week to a single contributor but have no problem with receiving as many as needed to get the objective accomplished - which is getting memorials, and the cemeteries, as accurate and complete as humanly possible.

|Ron Cottingham||Betty E Cottingham parents|
Betty's parents were John and Gladys (McCartney) Bridgewater. Thanks again.
|Ron Cottingham||Betty E Cottingham 1923-2002|
John, your findagrave tally is impressive. Unfortuantely, with as many contributions as you have, there is bound to be an error. I found one with Betty E Cottingham 19 March 1923- 25 Dec 2002. You have her listed as daughter of Ward and Hazel Cottingham. She is actually wife of Ernest Earl Cottingham, son of Ward and Hazel. Betty is Betty Ellen Bridgewater, daughter of James R and Karen (Johnson) Bridgewater.
Keep up the good work that you do!
Thanks for updating her memorial. Noticed there is a period in her middle name-Lee. Your help is much appreciated!

|June Phillips||Eva R.|
Thank you for all the memorials that you have added and maintained. I recently edited a memorial for the wife of Brig.Gen Vincent E. Stack in Arlington National Cemetery and made a mistake in giving her the maiden name of Warton. I have researched this to death and still cannot find her maiden name so please remove it for me.
Brig. Gen. Vincent E. Stack #49321957
wife Eva R. #49321948
Please forgive my error.
|Chryse Wayman||Christine Ann Wayman and the Griffey Family|

|Jason Stark||RE: Charles Stark|
Thanks. Number is 46018647
|Jason Stark||From Charles to Willet|
My name is Jason Stark. I've been researching my genealogy and I have definitively traced my line back to Charles Stark, for whose grave you have created the record. Thanks. I wanted to ask a follow up question. In continuing my research, I have begun looking into Willet H. Stark, who is listed in your record as Charles' father. While I have located his name in military records from the time and gained some information on him, I was curious if you could tell me how you came across his name as far as the familial relationship, and if you could point me in that direction. Thanks very much.
|Pierre Goulon||Adrienne Villaret|
Thanks John for your work. I added a picture of Adrienne Villaret, who was my grandmother's sister
