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!

RE: Ellen McCann Grave
OK thank you.

I guess someone was just being hopeful that Ellen was their relative. Ellen was the daughter of Lawrence and Mary Hurley of Jackson County Iowa. Her husband was Patrick McCann. He died in 1906.

I have the death certificate from Minnesota for Ellen showing each of the above facts.

Thank you for all of the work that you do on this project, particularly in and around the Dubuque area.

Ellen McCann Grave
Hi Cheryl. On the grave site page for Ellen in Iowa you show the middle name of Johnston. Do you know how you found that? I am not disputing- I just can't find it.

I just wanted to thank you for your efforts. Finding the photo of my 2nd Great Grandmother's gravestone was a very pleasant surprise. Additionally, it assisted greatly in my attempts to work on my family's genealogy. Thanks again!

RE: Christine Warnke
Did you ever contact Find A Grave admin and have them correct the memorials? That way there wouldn't be duplicates

Would you kindly remove your stone photo, I had already added it to the site prior to yours.

Hi Cheryl,

Would you be willing to transfer Henry Meyers #86431292 and Sarah (Knepper) Meyers #86442354? They are my 3x great grandparents.

Thank you,

RE: Josiah Galbraith reunion info.
I know what you mean. I was glad to know though that the reunion took place. I noticed also that I hadn't linked the memorial for one of Josiah & Mary Ann Galbraith's daughters to their memorials, so I took care of that. I have memorials for all of their adult children linked now. There were a number of children who died before adulthood, but I don't know where they were buried and am not sure of the names I have for those children. Thanks! Sharon

Would you share your vital records data that confirm the parents of Jane Hinde who married a Greenley? We believe she is my grandfather's mother.
Thanks-- ken quass

When I look through the Phoenix Groups transcription of the Infants Section of Mt Calvary, I don't see this name. Do you remember where you might have seen this marker, From the picture it looks like it's laying on the ground.I am interested in it because my wife's G Grandfather had 2 brothers who we have who disappeared from all records in the late 1800's and I am wondering if this might be a tie to one of them. I will walk this section when I have time. Thanks George
