Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy taking photos for Find A Grave. My interest started while researching my own ancestors. As I took photos of their stones I also took photos of those around them, especially the older ones before they are no longer readable. I hope someone else's journey into their past is a little easier because of the photos I have taken. I enjoy it very much when someone has found a family member's entry in Find A Grave that I created.
I will gladly transfer memorials to direct family members upon request.
Please ask before using any photos I have taken for Find A Grave. Thank you!

I made a typo in my text and do not know how to correct it. It should be Catherine, not Cathering.

With your permission, I would like to use this picture in my tree on Ancestry. Two uncles and an aunt.

RE: Joseph King Abbott
You're a doll! Thanks for the help! I did find an obit for him in Pittsburgh (he had been a resident there before moving to Pasadena), but my subscription doesn't cover that paper. I could see however that he had two daughters, one named Jeanne. Couldn't find an obit for his wife.

Thanks again! Working from cemetery records from a distance puts me at a little bit of a disadvantage, but I try to take the time to look for a little background on the people I add, so that if someone is looking for a relative or doing research on someone they're not just a name and a date.

Appreciate the time!

Joseph King Abbott
Hi! I've come across a Joseph King Abbott who I believe may be the son of your Mr. Abbott. While I don't have his birth year, it would fit the time frame. He is buried in CA. I tried looking up family records but didn't find them. My Mr. King's memorial # is 180638123.

RE: Mary and John Hricik
I forgot to mention that I will check on the name Susana Hricik. I do not recall hearing that name but will ask my older cousin. If she says that's another relative, I will be back to search. Again thank you for all you do with the photography of people's relatives grave sites. I would have never found them if it was not for your work.

RE: Mary and John Hricik
Thank you,Lavendar for such a prompt response. I finally decided to wrack my memory, drive to the cemetery, and memories began coming back after 51 years. I found my grandparents grave stone with the one uncle's gravestone to their left. I kept thinking about things I had heard as a child and suddenly I began walking up the hill, across the cemetery road, and within five minutes I was standing over a tiny flat grave stone engraved with Julia Hricik, a cross, and 1929. Below the tiny grave stone was a round cement marker with 1056. I don't know what that marker and number indicate. I took many photos with various landmarks included, from the grave sites for future reference for my daughter and three grandchildren. Warmest Regards, Helen

Dear Lavendar,
I am trying to find the exact lot and plot in Economy Cemetery for my grandparents, an uncle, and a baby girl, Julia, born to my grandparents. I have contacted many people and places to no avail. In finding your photos for my grandparents and uncle gravesites I am hoping you may have the exact locations within the cemetery. I am traveling from North Carolina and have limited time to visit their graves. The cemetery is large and since their deaths were in 1966,1967,and 1992 my recall on the grave location is limited. Is there any way you can assist me? Your dedication to taking photographs of the gravesites is commendable and very helpful. Sincerest regards, Helen
