Hi, my name is Tiffany and I live in Virginia Beach, VA.|
I have been fascinated by old cemeteries my entire life and have dabbled in genealogy since early 2000. I love old grave markers because they have a story to tell; they have character. These markers should be treasured and celebrated, yet far too many have not faired well over the years.
I've been photographing grave markers for years and am now getting around to posting them all. I will post whatever photos I have, regardless if someone else has already posted photos or not. I hope this doesn't offend any other photo takers - I am doing this so the next time my hard drive crashes at least all my hard work is documented somewhere! I'm on my 4th or 5th computer if that is any indication...
I live in Virginia, but my favorite cemeteries lies in the heart of Louisville. I tend to take photos of markers around those which I am looking for myself. I am partial to older stones that will likely fade over time, long-forgotten or poorly managed lots, and those of military veterans. I am happy to hunt for photo requests, but many people in my locality are able to get to them more quickly than myself.
Anyway, much of my research success can be attributed to the kindness of others and the efforts of people like myself who take the time to make their own information available on the Internet. I hope my effort will somehow "return the favor."

I found this article about this fellows death. You may post if you wish.
Article appears in the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, Tuesday, 7 May 1889 reads...
THREE BAD BOYS SHOT
Louisville, Kentucky, May 7 - William Dietrich and Frank Burton, each seventeen years old, and Rudolph Gossman, aged nineteen years, went to the country near the blind asylum Sunday to spend the day in the woods. They took a keg of beer along, but late in the afternoon Burton announced that he would treat the others to wine and they went to Joseph Werner's saloon, but he had none of the kind they wanted and they began "guying" him. Werner became very angry and chased them out of the saloon with a whip. The boys began throwing stones in return. Christina Ebbinger was in the saloon and hearing the row dashed out to take Werner's part. The boys continued throwing and Ebbinger drew a revolver and began firing at them. Burton and Dietrich were shot through the bowels and Gossman in the neck.
Dietrich is dead and the others dying. Ebbinger was arrested. he is a young man and has no occupation but had been trying to get employment from Werner as bartender.
Thanks for posting the picture of Ernest Mollenauer. He was my uncle by marriage. I live on Smith Mtn. Lake in Va. This past week was the first time I was able to visit his grave while we were in Norfolk.

See you've been in Indiana too. Is it ok if I use Anton "Tony" Gorenc gravestone pic on my family tree? I'm sending to cousins in Slovenia to translate for us.
He was married to my Great Aunt (her 1st marriage) Frances Luzar Adams (in Slovenian Francka) I will send her Find A Grave memorial to you so you can connect their records.

Could you please check your pending edits? And you might try the new Photo upload feature for your photos so you don't duplicate. If you have taken a better picture of one that I have posted please let me know and I will delete mine,
Thanks for all your efforts to enrich this site,
