Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have enjoyed wandering through cemetery and graveyards all of my life. Now I can't resist clicking through findagrave whenever I can. In 1977, when I began compiling my family history in earnest, I felt drawn to the gravesite of each relative I studied, so during the 1980s, my husband David and I often spent our vacations traveling from one cemetery to another mainly in the Midwest and Northwest. In the 1990s, I organized volunteers from the Fairfax County Genealogical Society to survey over 350 cemeteries and burial sites in the county and oversaw the publication of Fairfax County, Virginia Gravestones, volumes I-VI.

Now that I have discovered findagrave, I am delighted to have a place where I can share hundreds of photographs we have taken of gravestones and memorials all over the country. My thanks to all the contributors who have built this site and to all those who have helped me since I have become a member.

Thank you
I want to thank you for the work you have done. I have located my grandmother's grave and headstone picture in Alexandria, VA thanks to you.

William E. Clarkson #147928106
I have found a small obituary for Mr. Clarkson in the Evening Star (Washington, D.C.) of 11/15/1916. It gives his wife and daughters names. I thought you might like to see it.

I like reading old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and then trying to fine the people mentioned in the old articles. I believe I have fount Mr. Greenaway. It would appear he was a clerk for the City of Alexandria.

Thought you might find this interesting.
