Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Tech Lab teacher in middle school.
I enjoy genealogy and creating photo album pages of grandkids. I especially enjoy taking pictures of headstones. Cemeteries are lovely, peaceful and quiet.

PLEASE use the edit button to request transfers and make changes/additions to memorials.
Thank you.

Also, since I take a large number of cemstone photos, it is time prohibitive to clean them, especially the older ones, before taking a pic. I will be glad to retake any photos upon request.

AND, I would really appreciate any email communication to include the memorial numbers of the person(s) to whom you are referring. It is so time consuming (and open to error) to find names using the search tool.

Thx for contributing this memorial Mae. I added photo of Dad's headstone and a photo of him from 1956. Wonder if we should delete the other grave marker photos now? Also, could we edit to add middle name of "joseph" instead of just the "j".

RE: Smiths at Pleasant Hill Cemetery
Mae, I think you are right on the Pleasant Hill cemetery. I will check with my Mom to verify but I have some others there and I think it should of been Pleasant Hill and not cottage hill....Thanks for noticing that. I remember their graves were by a tree when I went there and Cottage Hill only has one.

RE: Smiths at Pleasant Hill Cemetery
Thank you Mae the memorial # for Mary is 130167235 and the memorial for "marion" is actually Mahlon and I am already the custodian of his memorial site. The one you have Marion #130167209 Sorry for the confusion but I didn't pay close enough attention when I looked at the one you have. My Great Grandfather Mahlon's memorial number is #127228002 if you would like to verify. Thank you so much and sorry for the confusion as the grave markers are in terrible shape and I hope to get them better ones.

Bert? I have no idea who Bert was. No one has ever said she lost a child is possible and maybe that is why the sit the headstone before they died.

Smith's at Pleasant Hill cemetary
Hello Mae

First thank you for your memorial of my Great Grandparents Marion and Mary Smith. I was wondering if you would be interested in transferring management of their wall to myself? I am trying to pool family together to get them a new Headstone as I was sad when I visited their sight and saw the condition of their stones. The are my Grandmothers Grandparents on my Mom's side and I have a lot of information I could add. Anyway, thank you for your time

RE: Tillie Meinhardt 38426718

Thank you for your message. No problem. Hopefully I haven't totally overloaded you with edit approvals. I've been "back filling" information from my tree into Find A Grave to give a more complete picture of my relatives long past. If a last name is Brabb-Hooper-Meinhardt-Miller-Morgan-Peterson and lived in the Alta Vista-Council Grove-Dunlap area, then I'm probably related. Have a nice week!

Best regards,

Thank you so much for your incredible work at Find a Grave. I wanted to ask permission to copy this photo of little John M Back stone. Probably the only proof of his existance is this beautiful stone. I'd like to post it on my tree in Ancestry but only with your permission. Thankyou so much, Jennifer

Thank you Mae for trying to find my cousin's grave. I am just wondering, when you took the photo for his wife, Frances Elizabeth Drake Bottiger, if Harry wasn't buried with her? You listed names with her burial. Was that "Harry" a Bottiger?

I also notice on his profile for here, they have his birth as follows:

Aug. 12, 1875
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA

I myself have as follows:

BIRTH 12 AUGUST 1878 Upper Paxton, Dauphin, Pennsylvania, USA

Thank you for fulfilling my other requests.

Sincere thanks,
