Bio and Links
Being a photo volunteer is great - I love helping people and helping them find the info they are looking for or, better yet, something they didn't expect to find!

Most of my memorials are not related. Please check the my virtual cemetery - those memorials are directly related (although some not "close"). Any memorial NOT in my virtual cemetery will gladly be transferred to a family member - I'm glad they've been "found"!

Any of my photos can be used in your family tree program as long as it is NOT used for profit. You are hereby granted permission to copy them without requesting any further permission from me. HOWEVER, please check the captions of the photos!!! A very special group of volunteers photographed all of Andrew County (PACT) - they have very generously allowed the use of their photographs on FAG. If the caption portion of the picture attributes it to PACT then please make sure you do the same if you copy it. (or visit their website to get a better copy!)

Also, as a reminder, photos are copyrighted by the person who took them. Please remember that just because I will freely share my photos does not mean that all contributors to FAG feel the same. Most will give permission but you must ASK first. Please do not equate my "blanket" permission as permission from all FAG contributors.

I do keep most of my photos, so if you would like me to e-mail them to you rather than lifting them off this site, I'd be happy to do so - just send me a link to the proper memorial or use the Suggest A Correction feature.

If you are going to use my photo, please be sure to CREDIT it to FINDAGRAVE.COM and please do not attempt to pass it off as your own work.

RE: DeeRexBuntin
I have a partial obituary but is cut off at where it starts to give me the burial location. He died October 31, 2001 at Heartland Medical Center in St Joseph, MO. He could very well not have a headstone as yet. I have found my cousin, his wife and my uncle at Union Star Cemetery. I just have not ask my cousin if she had a marker for her husband Dee as yet but I did ask her where Dee was buried and she told me the Oak Grove Cemetery just south of Union Star. Sorry I can't be of more help but all your efforts are appreciated by me. These web sites really help.

I am told by my 94 YO cousin her husband named subject line is buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery. I am really surprised there is not a photo added already. Since I have not found it already I am thinking there may not be a headstone? That would really surprise me. Oh this cemetery is a few miles south and east of Union Star MO on NW Gospel Rd just east of NW State HWY F. Should be easy to find My Uncle Connie Pettyjohn lived in that area a I visited there as a child. I lived in St Joseph,MO then but live in West Texas today. Would be ever grateful to get a photo of the headstone of my cousins husband.

RE: Find a Grave photos
My book on the Eighth Indiana has been published in a four volume series entitled, Above Us or Around Us. Volume I: The Story of the Bloody Eighth tells the history of both the three-month and three-year Eighth Indiana Infantry regiments from April 1861 to August 1865. Readers will learn how they chose their motto "Above Us or Around Us," how they earned their nickname "The Bloody Eighth," and what occurred during each battle. They will also learn about the soldiers' family ties, claims to fame, and tragic endings. This volume includes poems about the Battle of Cedar Creek and poems written by James Whitcomb Riley, whose father, uncle, and favorite teacher served in this regiment, and includes regimental correspondence. Volume II: The Men of the Bloody Eighth A-K and Volume III: The Men of the Bloody Eighth L-Z continue the story of the Eighth Indiana Infantry through the biographies of the soldiers and contrabands who served in this regiment. Readers will learn about the regiment's Medal of Honor recipient, the soldier who made and sold the first ice cream cone in the world, James Whitcomb Riley's teacher and relatives of James Whitcomb Riley and Carrie Nation, the soldier who held ten patents for his inventions, and the soldier related to Presidents William Henry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison. Two soldiers in this volume named the town of Windfall, Indiana. One soldier and his brother built the first threshing machine in Indiana. Several soldiers experienced close encounters with death or PTSD, which led to suicide. Some became murder victims or committed murder. These biographies will leave a lasting impression on readers as they learn more about the men of the Bloody Eighth. Volume IV: The Story and the Men of the Bloody Eighth in the News includes the newspaper articles that provide reports during the war and about brigade reunions after the war. The articles also help readers learn about tragedies, special events, and the deaths of the soldiers in this regiment. Readers can also follow a Tennessee murder trial. The men of the "Bloody Eighth" lived up to their motto "Above Us or Around Us" and are men to be remembered for years to come. This series is now available on

I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give me your first and last name for the captions?

Sanganett's in Odd Fellows - St. Joe
Hi Kelly,

Was just looking at my Sanganett family that is buried in Odd Fellow Cemetery. Thank you for posting the photos. Just wanted to see if you can link them together. Rose and Robert Paul are the parents of R Paul - the military headstone. R Paul is the husband of Eva Mae and they are the parents of Byron Paul.

Thanks again.

Buried in Turner Cem. you took a couple of pics of her headstone the dates are readable can almost read the inscription this is a child. Is there any way you could look at it and perhaps see what it says? Would appreciate it. The memorial manager never puts any info on them.

Thanks Kelly

Martha Siekman Ebels (9711251)
Kelly, the marriage record you asked about can be found on Family Search by searching Johannes Ebels in Michigan. There are two results with images, one listing the spouse as Martha Tallman and one as Martha Tillman. Same record, but note that the Tallman image is much darker and easier to read. (Thank you for that, as I had saved the faint Tillman image!) If for any reason you can't find them, send me your email address in a "Suggest correction or addition" edit and I'll send you the good image. - Doug
