Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lately I've been a little obsessed with adding names to the Washburn Street Cemetery in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I've found several ancestors buried there and then I read about the cemetery, I just couldn't help but want to add to it.
(I'm adding this info based on both Death Certificates and obituaries.)

PS - I sort of hate the fact that Davis and Davies are so interchangeable! It's annoying.

I lost my beautiful Boo, my heart is broken.

My sweet Beef has joined him.

I live in Colorado and I'm very interested in family history. The whole reason I joined here was to find my ancestors. I love going to cemeteries and taking pictures. Many of my contributions are based off the photographs I take at these cemeteries.

Sometimes I have trouble reading the dates in the pictures - if you can help me you can click the Edit tab at the top and send me a message. I want to get it right! I like linking family members and adding any info you may have for me. :D

I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to family members!

The one nearest and dearest to my heart, my daddy, was the reason I joined. You can always stop by and leave flowers. <3

I helped Beth in Colorado to add all the folks in Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City. It took months, wasn't easy, but it was worth it!

My main interest names are:

A note about my photos - any headstone photos that I took, you have my permission to use on Ancestry or even your own family history pages, all I ask is that you note that I(Courtney Birkes) took the photo. Thank you :)

Hi Courtney!

Can you add the birth year for Lilly A. Foster (Lakeside Cemetery in Colorado)? It's on her headstone as 1873, Her Find A Grave Memorial# is 114389645. She is related to me on my father's side. I am also going to put in a request to link her to both her mother and her father.

Thank you so much!

Hi Courtney
The cemetery is located in a place called Charles near South Molton. If I remember its quite narrow roads leading up to it. If you google Charles South Molton church you should be able to find it ok. Anymore Help needed give me a shout :)

Hi Courtney

Thanks for your edits. At the moment I am unable to accept them as there seems to be a glitch on here whereas the accept edits button has disappeared. Will accept when glitch has gone. Thanks :)

RE: John Q McGaffin Canon City Co memorial
Thank you for checking. I will be passing through Canon City in about a month, so I will try to stop then to check with the History Center, if they are open when I am there. If I don't get a chance to stop, I appreciate the email address. Thanks again.

RE: John Q McGaffin Canon City Co memorial
Thank you very much. Does the register show any other information about him? Sometimes they show cause of death, next of kin, etc. Any additional information you could give me would help to solve the mystery. Thank you for all you do in creating the memorials and photographing the stones. It is a great help to those of us who cannot get to the cemeteries to do it ourselves.

John Q McGaffin Canon City Co memorial
Hello Courtney--I recently found the memorial you created for John Q McGaffin in Greenwood cemetery, Canon City, Co. I am curious if you have any source information for the date of death, as the stone only shows 1930. The birth and death dates on the stone fit very nicely to an ancestor of mine, but I would like to know a little more about the memorial. Thank you for your help.

I have gone back to that cemetery many times but unable to find it again. I will continue to look and go through my old pictures. I know I took a picture of it.

Dear Courtney:

Thank you so much for entering this family member into Find-A-Grave! I appreciate the memorial site you've created, and I would like to maintain it if possible. Would you please transfer management of Ann's site to me? As you can see, I've already sponsored her memorial, and I would love to go further.

Thank you for your consideration.

Kind regards,
