Bio and Links
Bio Photo This has been my hobby for over seven years, started long before I discovered any websites for posting them.
I find myself concentrating on the older, broken, unreadable tombstones, the ones that, because of layers of mold, lichen and grime, are so obscure that people tend to walk right past them. I get more satisfaction uncovering a lost individual's stone than I do photographing huge monuments that will be around for a thousand years and those more modern ones of the men whose bones have partially disintegrated while still clothed in the everlasting polyester suits that they were buried in!

Josiah Galbraith reunion info.
Thank you for the additional information. I see that they messed up the name of my great grandfather Moses Robeson "Rob" Galbraith by listing him as "Roberson" Galbraith. I hate it when someone does that sort of thing, but since this appeared in 1892, it's a bit late for me to complain to the person who was responsible. Sharon

Nancy and Thomas Scudder
Thanks so much for photos of Nancy and Thomas Scudder, Iowa. I never expected to see this as I know the stones were buried in the ground. They are my ggg grandparents.

Catharine "Gill" Waldron
Dear Cheryl, My question is regarding Catharine Gill Waldron buried at St. Clements cementery, Bankston, Dubuque county, Iowa. I am wondering how you got the name "Gill" for Catharine Waldron. I'm assuming "Gill" meant as her maiden name. Do you have any records that show this? Others interested in Catharine Waldron have listed her maiden name as Hayes. There is a Bridget Hayes in the Dubuque area - but dates don't line up as a match. I hope you can help me out & your work on Find a Grave is highly appreciated! - Thank You, Maureen Thomson

James Maruna
Hi, my name is Janet Sanford and I see you have a memorial for James Maruna. I was wondering if you are related to him, as he is my GG Grandfather on my mom's side. Any info you could pass on to me would be greatly appreciated, as until now was not able to find out where he was buried. Thank you.

If you still believe it is correct to delete the mother as shown in your delete, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you and you may adjust it as you see fit. I do not know this family; thus, I have no vested interest and perhaps you have more or better information than I.

Reuben Williams
Dear Ms. Moonen: I was delighted to find Reuben Williams' gravestone in Linwood Cemetery, Dubuque. He was a member of the 147th Regiment NYSV and he apparently died in 1879 or early 1880. When you took the picture of his stone, did you by any chance see a stone for his wife, Mary L. Moffitt Williams? I know she was alive in 1893 but cannot trace her farther. She and Reuben had a son, Selden H., and a daughter, Julia. Any information you may be able to provide will be most gratefully received. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD
