Bio Photo "Because someone may be looking for you~"

Hello, my name is Karen and I am a cemetery stalking, tombstone touring, taphophile, as well as a genealogist and memorial art photographer.

I reside in the beautiful mountains of Middleburgh, NY. I am the owner of Things Remembered Genealogy Research Services and Crushing Violets Photography.

My current research projects and of familial interest to me are the sir names: Bodmer, Lomma, Mather, Fletcher, Newman, Bowles & Moore. I am always looking for new information and I am willing to share the information that I have.

As a history hunter and genealogist I have a strong passion for preserving and sharing cemetery information.

Cemeteries are peaceful, interesting and often lovely places that hold a definitive connection to the past. Older headstones are remarkable… whether the ornate and immense of the rich, or small and simple of the poor… each one has a story if you know how to read it.

Find a Grave is a wonderful resource for folks who are doing historical research, and geneaology. If I can help others find people they are looking for while I photograph for art, history and preservation purposes I'm happy to do so.

I often take quick snapshots of stones and markers as I travel the cemeteries and check later for requests & memorials that need a photo. For accuracy, I rarely create memorials unless I have benifit of a photo. I also try and research and post factual(obituary) information if possible. Dates, maiden names, etc., if posted in the memorial but are not on the headstone were researched from obituaries or gensites.

Feel free to contact me w/any questions, comments or corrections. But please note due to my schedule I am slow to read & respond to email!

Thank you so much for the photograph. I really, really appreciate the courtesy. I am trying to connect the Brazie family members; I am finding multiple spellings of the name.

I think he is a Brazie that married a Van Buren, but the family spelled the names differently. Thank you so much for your are an angel. Lisa, Missouri

Thanks for the photo of Lydia Denison
Your photo confirmed my hunch that she was born 1834, not 1884. I just requested an update. Thanks.

RE: grace & Jay beilby

Sorry for the long delay, I have been on the road and I work from a library.
Yes, it is Beilby, I have also seen other spellings such as Bielby and Bilby the later being the spelling that some of the family changed there names to in the late 1800 and early 1900. Some of those have now changed there names spelling back to Beilby.

Are you connected to Jay and Grace?

I would like to know if you find a head stone, I beleave that I was at that cemetery some year back and did not find one.

Erastus & Ruth Stebbins
I was not sure where in Masonville they were buried. I will move my memorials into burial unknown until I see the memorials in pioneer cemetery have been updated and linked. It is important that this is done as I have profiles (with photographs) created for their son and both parents back here in Massachusetts. Thanks! James

Griggs Gravemarkers
Karen. Thank you so much for photographing the headstones of John and Margaret and Gideon and Christina Griggs at Old Stone Fort Cemetery. I live in Wisconsin, and hope to get there in person sometime, but meanwhile I am so grateful for your willingness to take the photos. I am sure there will be others who will be as grateful as I am for the ability to see the headstones. I so appreciate your willingness to give up some of your valuable time to help me. Thanks again.

Henry Martin Tenney
I am trying to find some info on Henry Martin Tenney who is buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Arcata. I am under the impression he may have been married to a May Burton and I noticed that you have had some exchanges with someone who is related to this man, I am trying to find a way to reach them so I can confirm this. The Henry Tenney I am looking for was living in Portland Oregon for a time but probably would have met May Burton here in Humboldt Co. Please help, thanks so much. Donna/Eureka California
