Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy history, photography and genealogy; so exploring the cemetery and taking photos of tombstones pair the three interests very well.

I have been using Find a Grave for five years, and it has helped with my family research immensely. I praise the creators!!!

I am a photo volunteer and I find it quite fascinating. I usually find a lot more than what I go to find, and I so enjoy the excitement of how other's respond to what you find out about their family.

I typically take photos during late spring and the summer months when the weather conditions are good. My cemetery of choice is Oak Woods Cemetery in Chicago. It is an old beautiful cemetery with about 183 acres of grassy land, ponds, large trees and winding roads. I know the layout of the cemetery very well and have good luck finding the locations of graves. The staff are extremely helpful too.

If you know the Section and Lot of the grave you want photographed, I will respond to your request quicker. Although I will do a look-up, but you must have the date or at least the year of death.

Charlie Henderson
I walked the whole cemetery of Madisonville Cemetery and did not find a "Charlie". I left this note on the problem part of the request....let me know if you need me to further research this. I will do my best to help...

Me and my daughter walked the whole cemetery and found many "Henderson" gravesites. We did not find a Charlie, but found a "Virgil" in which the dates are really close to the information you have in your request. If you send me your email, I will send the picture we took of "Virgil Henderson's" headstone; Born October 29, 1895 and Died April 15, 1962. Thought maybe Virgil may have been a birth name and Charlie a middle name or nickname. Please let me know if this information helped? Thank you. I will be glad to research it more for you with the sexton of the church.

Some time ago I transferred the memorial for the above individual to you. I am currently helping someone with research and he is looking for Leroy E. Griffin who is buried in the same plot. Can you tell me if they are related?

Hamden Plains Cemetery.

Do you known if all the burials are listed? I'm looking for a son of Charles and Oliva MacKimm's, Alexander and wife Rose.
Thank you

Hello, I am a relative of James Morrison and I was wondering if it's okay for me to use the grave stone photos you posted for him on my personal family tree?
Thank you!

Your welcome, glad to help out anytime, I've found and added some more McDaniel family members from the same cemetery by the way.

Wheeler family at Willow Cemetery
I am getting ready to visit the Oregon, Ohio cemeteries (weather permitting) soon.

I can not find your John Wheeler in the online database.

You may want to check the online database also.

If you call the cemetery and get the location of the grave I will get the photo for you. If they give you a location by map number, ask them to tell you which actual section it is in.
