Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Indianapolis, IN but was raised in southern Indiana. Cemeteries have been great tools in finding our ancestors. I love the Find A Grave site and have found many missing links here.

I try to take photos of older graves knowing that they are often destroyed by either the elements or sadly, vandalism. As I photograph graves, I always try to remember the life of the person buried there. If I have a memorial to your ancestor, please contact me for a transfer. I'll gladly do that even if they are a distant relative as I know how important each name is in our own family trees.

I live close to Crown Hill cemetery and can take grave photos when I am able to get the time to get out. You can reach me at:

Re: Corrections
I think I got them all. Let me know if I didn't. Boy, donfusing when they put names on gravestones in one cemetery but buried in another. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

You added a photo of the headstone for the above subject memorial. Can you add the same photo to the following memorial for the same person:
Created by: Debbie Howes
Record added: May 03, 2009
Find A Grave Memorial# 36664562

The headstone photo on 36664562 is not near as clear as the one you added to 89240969.

If you can do this, it would be greatly appreciated and afterwards I can ask for memorial #89240969 (added 28 Apr 2012) be taken down.

Tacy Phillips
I have transferred Tacy to you.
And by the way, it states right on the rejection why and what I would like to have.
Please check the message, if you do not see it there, please contact fIND a GRAVE because I fill out the comment each time I reject.
As for having an email to send to, in the past people have been very insulting and I no longer wish to deal with the like.
I have over 90,000 memorials to manage, I deal with a minimum 60 requests daily.
I am trying to keep the memorials as accurate as possible.

James William Elias Owens birth place
Thank you for sending the edits as to him, his birth place and his parents. As I was looking on the National Archives, I found the man I think was him, and married to Sarah, and farming in Iowa, but he was born in Illinois to a father born in Tennessee (1880 Census). Then there was another James Willis Owens of about the same birth year and age, also married to a Sarah, who is buried in another cemetery entirely (in North Carolina, not Iowa). I look forward to hearing from you, to be sure we have the right man.
