Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please use the edit tab to ask for updates. Please use the free-form entry ('Suggest any other change or correction') only if there is no category for your change.

For transfers, please use the edit tab, then 'Suggest any other change or correction'.

Transfer requests for 'all surnames in a cemetery' will not be processed. A separate transfer request must be submitted for each memorial.


I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures. In mid July 2010 I started a project to record as many memorials for the cemeteries in my county (Broome, NY) with pictures that I could. This project is done. I have moved on to cemeteries in Susquehanna PA and Tioga NY.

The following link will show all the cemeteries in the surrounding counties photographed (by me and others!) and added to Find A Grave:

Broome County NY Cemeteries
Tioga County NY Cemeteries
Susquehanna County PA Cemeteries

Cemeteries Statistics as of 08/03/2017:
County....................... # cems ..... # Mems ........... w/photo
Broome ........................ 154 ....... 190,040 ..... 179,989 (92.8%)
Susquehanna............... 201 ........ 62,939 ....... 48,855 (77.7%)
Chemung ....................... 130 ......... 130,116 ....... 81,635 (62.7%)
Tioga (NY).................... 104 ......... 67,279 ....... 57,898 (86.1%)


If I have added memorials for any of your relatives, please thank me by visiting a nearby cemetery and add the gravestones there for others to find their relatives.

You have my permission to use any picture taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I am given credit. For commercial use, please contact me.

If any of the memorials I have created need updates, please contact me using the edit tab. If any are a relative of yours and you want to manage them, let me know and I will transfer them. I am related to only a few of the memorials I created so putting them in a relative's care is a good thing. Please use the edit tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or update.

RE: Mary A Mack (60450538)
I guess you didn't receive the email I sent earlier explaining the reason for a change, so I'll resend the story--via email--because this is apparently public and I am asking that nothing I related in the email become part of her bio, except the change of name.

Raymond Stanley Doane-Forest Lawn Memorial cemetery
I am so grateful for all your time and effort in providing explanations and photographs for the Doane family headstones and plots.

Also thank you for attaching photos to their Find A Grave memorials.

Freeman E Smith gravestone photo

Thanks very much for your time and effort to photograph the gravestone of Freeman E Smith. Also, thanks for helping me solve the mystery about the misspelling of his first name and middle initial (Fennimore C Smith) in the cemetery records.

RE: Bridget F Fitzpatrick Cahill (145072790)
"other that the gravestone"-?! That is exactly why I submitted the Edit. The photo is challenging to read and I assumed a mistake had been made - it happens. If her birth year differs from the headstone info, I would suggest noting that in the bio.

Franklin Pierce, see below

Oops! I meant that Franklin & Alonzo are NOT listed.

Josiah/Harriet PIERCE, Hope Cem, NY

Paul, I'm wondering if the nice photo you posted to Josiah/Harriet's memorials #134276496, Tioga Co. NY,which shows two leaning stones against Josiah's.
At the very top of the front one the name looks like "Frank.." and they had a son, Franklin, and one Alonzo. If they're bur. there, they are listed. Thanks for any help. winnie
