Bio and Links
Thanks to my mother and her fascination with genealogy, I grew up playing in cemeteries. We'd be taking a Sunday drive and she'd yell to my father "Oh, stop!" and there we'd be, hanging out among the tombstones again.

Now, as an adult, I spend a lot of time walking in cemeteries. I love to see how styles of grave markers have evolved over the years.

My sister is the one who does the genealogy research now and I try to keep track of the graves.

Nora is buried to the right of Catherine Birnley in an unmarked grave in the photo I posted.

I transferred his memorial over to you. He is your family, not mine

RE: Lora Ayer
Another Photoshop tip is to use the History brush (letter Y on the keyboard) and set it to either burn or dodge to bring out the lettering on those hard to read tombstones. I usually set it to about 23%.

Thank You
Thank you for posting the photos of Frederick and Anna Balsley's headstone. It is great to compare your pictures to my picture of the headstone taken 90 years ago!

Gladys was the wife of Charles Scheible, they had a dau. "Dontly" b.1926 &
son Charles K. b.1928. Apparently she married Fauls after 1963, you can link
her to Fauls anyhow., Andy

Franzen Photos
Hi Karen,
I added the photos you requested for the Franzen's even though the dates don't quite match what you had and Elizabeth didn't have a DOD.
Have a good day....

RE: Harlowe Near
No. I think Andrew Zachow fulfilled the request as well. Maybe he didn't officially claim it.
Either way, I am grateful to have both photos. :o)
Thanks again!

Thank you so much for the photo of Harlowe Near! I was hoping the stones weren't covered with snow yet. :o)
Thanks again!
