|Bio and Links|
I've been researching my ancestors for more than 15 years and have made remarkable progress partly due to sites like Find A Grave and the people that so generously offer their time to help complete strangers. From my own experience I know it can sometimes take a lot of time to find the stones, especially the old ones and taking a good picture can be quite a challenge. So for those that dedicate their time to taking photos I greatly appreciate their effort. I enjoy hearing back from the people requesting photos. It makes it seem all the more worthwhile when I know I have helped them with a little piece of their puzzle.|
Most of the memorials I have created are not my ancestors so I'm more than happy to transfer memorial ownership if you have a connection. I try to add as much information as I can regarding their dates and places of birth and death but I do make mistakes. I'll gladly make corrections or add additional information so long as you have documentation to verify your request.
Anyone may use my photos for their own personal family genealogy. I would also be happy to email high resolution photos if they are your descendants. Photo credit would be appreciated.
I would also like to thank my wife for the many hours she has spent helping me find gravestones and doing research.
Our descendants include some of the following:
Andrews, Coleman, Dickerman, DeFlorio, Buchanan, O'Neil, Dodge, Medland, Herwig, Ringquist, Weckesser, Boyce, Adams, Minor (Miner) and Farr.

|Kevin Thomas West||RE: William Patterson|
I've added Experience (who I thought was at another cemetery), William R. Patterson, and then I have a question about Henry A. Patterson. There are two Henry A. Patterson's. One died as a one year old, and then they had another Henry A. who died in 1906 as a seventy something year old. I've added both and will delete the incorrect one when you post photos. I've put in photo requests to make it easier. Well, I think it's easier. :-)
|Kevin Thomas West||RE: William Patterson|
that's very kind of you bill. i shoot as well, so i understand.
i like to make them beautiful. anyway, lemme look to see if they need memorials. the patterson's are my family, so i should probably be the one to do it. :-)
|Kevin Thomas West||William Patterson|
wow wow wow. thank you for that beautiful photo of the Patterson's spire. I'll pay it forward.

This may have been our last chance to have this headstone cleaned up enough to read. You did a super job, thank you so much. As for the other memorial for Zenas Morey, the contributor "Geoffrey Williams". had passed away. So I am glad you made a note with his headstone.
Thank you again for doing for me.
|Lynn Gates||RE: Photo for Tabitha Carpenter|
Yes, I just saw you also did a pboto of his as well. Thank you so, so much. He was my 4th Grandfather. Thank you for letting me know about the condition. Ive been restoring or replacing immediate family's headstones as I'm finding these issues. I even drove to Iowa this summer to over see one restoration and found 2 more there also in need. Again, I truly appreciate you taking the time to do that for me. Means a great deal 💙
|Bill Barnsley||RE: James Kibbee|
I saw the photo for Chloe's memorial. That is very helpful as well. My line goes through his first wife, Sarah Hudson. It may be that she is also in that same cemetery, but I don't know if she has a marked grave, or for sure if she is really even there. Regardless, the photo is a HUGE help. Thank you for that.

Thank you SO very much for taking the time to go locate and photograph her headstone! I am truly so grateful ❤
|Bill Barnsley||James Kibbee|
Thank you so much for this photo of his monument. It really helps with my personal family research. James was one of my distant grandfathers.
|Melinda Morey Gregory||Zenus Morey|
Thank you so much for the headstone photo for Zenus Morey. Your time and efforts are much appreciated. Thanks again! Sincerely, Melinda
