Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very familiar with Hendricks and Morgan counties of Indiana and the Quakers who settled there. When taking pictures I won't disturb a stone as they are so brittle and "granular" now as compared to when I started taking pictures of them 30+ years ago. To use brushes, chalk, soaps and chemicals would likely wipe out any text that had been carved in (especially the very old ones). Please be careful with these old stones - once damage has been done from cleaning, it's likely irrepairable. Please check findagrave discussion forums or your local department of natural resources for alternatives to bring out the text on these stones safely. Please be careful so the next person after you will be read this precious genealogical resource! Thank you.

Best Practice Recommendations for Cleaning Government-Issued Marble Headstones:

Please note that I have a lot going on right now and it may take a bit to get back with you, and I would be happy to update memorials with sourced documentation. Thank you in advance for your patience. I am not releasing memorials I manage f
or the Sugar Grove Friends Burying Ground as I am in process of editing all burials Thank you for your understanding.

PLEASE DO NOT use any of my photos prior to asking and receiving written permission. Should you wish to use my photos - please post a message below with the memorial name and number along with a description/source of what my photos will be used for, the description(s) of photos you wish to have permission to use along with your name, contributor ID number and an email address where you can be contacted back at. I will not consider any request that has less than the information as outlined above.

I would appreciate virtual flowers and notes left on my Revolutionary War ancestor's memorials - William Hoyt (memorial # 68922225) who was killed in battle at Fort Ticonderoga, and his son Benjamin (memorial # 120139805) who was in the same troop and witnessed his father being shot and killed.

Thank you.

Hi Pam.

I am a new contributor for and live just down the road from the Sugar Grove Cemetery. I was hoping we could meet and I might tag along on a one of your photo requests as an observer.
You can email me direct at

I look forward to hearing from you.

George Guion @ Mt Muncie

I only wanted to let you know that unfortunately George's grave is unmarked. I added a yellow star to the plot photo indicating where he is buried.

Best Regards

Eli Vestal
Hello. I just saw the request for a photo. I am on my way to Hesper right now to do a photo for someone else. I will look for Mr. Vestal's spot as well. I just spoke with the groundskeeper by phone and he said that will be one of the oldest graves in the cemetery. He told me generally where it may be, but also said many of them that old did not have markers, or they have deteriorated. He is going to look on a may for me and see if he can help if I am not able to find it. I will keep you posted. ~Phyllis

BTW, the death date on your memorial and the headstone application mentioned in the previous message is the same.

Marion Thomas Knight
Hi Pam. I wanted to ask your opinion about a memorial I have inherited for Thomas Marion Knight in Greenlawn Memorial Park in Groves, Texas (Port Arthur). The memorial was originally created from the photo taken of his headstone but the dates are not legible in the photo so the creator left that area blank. It's memorial #123028860. You have one for Marion Thomas Knight married to Mary Linda Watkins. I think they are the same so I wanted to ask your opinion about the headstone. I found on Ancestry an application for a WWI military headstone for Thomas Marion Knight and it was sent to Mary Linda Knight and placed in Greenlawn. You can see the photo of it on the memorial I have. I think it is the same person. I would like to move the photo to your site and delete my memorial. Please consider this and let me know what you think. I hope you can find the application on Ancestry. Look for Thomas Marion Knight instead of Marion Thomas Knight.

RE: Pratt Wilton Jessup
sounds good. There are allot of very old trees in those woods and one of the times I was there it was very creaky and a little spooky

RE: Pratt Wilton Jessup
I went back and searched for a route to get across the ravine but there was none to be found. Apparently no one has been using a designated path or perhaps no one has been back there at all. With all the rain there is absolutely no way to get back there without injuries. LOL

Hi.. I am the grandson of Harry's brother John Francis Trost. I have been looking for the resting place of Harry for a long time. Are you related to Harry or Doris? If not, I would be happy to manage both of their memorials.

I was wondering if you would possibly transfer my great grandfather's, father's page to me. I would appreciate it so very much.
His # is: 138845446, and my number is: 47216772.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort.
