Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing some geneological research which led to my discovery of 'Find A Grave'. Part of my research included finding the graves of my ancestors and keeping a photographic record of what I find. While I was walking the cemeteries I started seeing familiar names of family and old friends so I photograph them and put them on the website. Sometimes I just shoot a photo of anything that catches my interest such as some of the older neglected markers that I find. I also have been registering the gravesites of Civil War veterans with the "Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War" graves registration database. Since 2012, I have begun photographing all of the cemeteries around Leipsic, Ohio. ...And I also discovered that cemeteries are a nice peaceful place to take an easily distracted german shepherd dog for an evening walk.

Transfers

Please use the edit tab on the memorial to request a transfer. Send your Find A Grave membership number and your relationship to the deceased. It is my policy to transfer memorials to family as long as I am not related to the deceased.
-------------------------------------------------
Additions and corrections

I try to get the information in the memorials as accurate as possible but sometimes the only information I have is incomplete or incorrect. I prefer to work from photos that I shoot when visiting a cemetery in person, and for the majority of the memorials that I have entered into Find a Grave, a headstone photo is the only documentation I have.
Please use the edit tab on the memorial to make additions and corrections. Since Find a Grave now links to other websites used for genealogical research, please try to be as accurate as possible to keep this site a useful resource. Unless you have firsthand knowledge of the deceased, please research, document and verify information when making edits. If something does not look right to me I will recheck and verify the information and you should do the same.

Photos

You may use my Find a Grave photos on ancestry.com or other websites and projects involving genealogy. And as always, please give credit where credit is due.

If you will look more closely at the tombstone for James R. Lafferty you will see that it says he died in 1894, not 1884. His probate record also says 1894. (He was my third GGF)

Thanks for the edit to Julia Catherine Lindle.
The Tingle family is difficult to follow in places, and it helps to have details on the Memorials.

McMichael, Nancy date of death
The date of death for Nancy J McMichael is incorrect. My nancy was married to Samuel Altman. she died Dec 11, 1914. Her headstone does not state the exact date of death. I would love to know where the other date came from....just trying to verify information.

Thank you
