Bio and Links
Some of the cemetery pictures I have taken are of higher quality than others, so I wouldn't be at all offended by polite suggestions to remove a photo, if better ones have been obtained. A reminder that if my thumbnail on a memorial seems distant, or grainy, one can click for a larger detailed image. I do not keep originals after uploading successfully. FYI - most photos were taken relatively close to the upload date.

I'm generally willing to transfer memorials, other than my own family (unless you have a closer relationship). Please let me know your relationship to an individual, no matter how distant, or other circumstances triggering the request. IMPORTANT: requests made other than as Suggest a Correction using the "other" (last) dropdown box with a message such as "please transfer (my dad's best friend with no family of his own, etc.)" will be ignored - separate request required for each person!

Please do not request that I add (paste) extensive obituaries or other similar material. If you feel there's a specific reason why the person should have special note, please explain why I should make an exception - thanks.

Also, I am generally unwilling to link to Burial Unknown memorials.

Hi John,

I did take photos of the markers, I plan on adding them after I get all the names uploaded. Taking me a little longer than I had planned!

Emeline G Sayer
Thanks a lot for the quick response. Might be the most interesting gravemarker I have seen with Emeline, her mother Eunice, her 2nd husband Albert and her son Harry by her 3rd husband.

Can I "borrow" the photo with attribution for my family history project? Appreciate it.

RE: Vera Sooy SAC
No relation. However, I do know Ron Sooy who farms outside of Cheney. His mother Amy Jo was married to Fred Sooy. Amy was the mayor of Cheney for awhile back in the very early 1990's. I like to find families that date back into the 1800's and look up their information in ancestry, then link them or add whatever I find out about them.

Do you live in Eastern Washington?

Hi, John-
Hate to ask knowing you don't save photos, but can you provide the full inscription on Emeline's gravemarker (112263588). I would appreciate it very much as I am trying to connect the dots among several family members.

Thanks for all your work for Find A Grave!
