|Bio and Links|
I'm an amateur singer & guitarist. When taking pictures at cemeteries & adding interments to this site, I started with my own family (charity begins at home, as they say). Then I did the same for friends & for people whose deaths made headlines in my local newspaper. Now I take grave pics & add pages for people whether or not I ever knew them or heard of them. Besides gravestones themselves, my major sources of info have been the BYU-Idaho burial index & the Utah burial index.|
If you have photographed a headstone for 2 people (usually a husband & wife) & posted it to a page for one of them, & want to copy it to a page for the other person, please be careful not to right-click the small grave pic on the main memorial page for the 1st person; otherwise the small pic, not the big one, will be the one that you'll save to your hard drive & that will end up on the page for the 2nd person.
I have done little gravestone photography since the summer of 2007, but once in a blue moon I do resume this hobby for a short while. In any case, I appreciate the feedback I have received from family & friends of those for whom I've added pages &/or grave pics.

Due to a couple of errors on the headstone you photographed, the family organization felt it best to replace the headstone and correct the errors. The new headstone was installed in Sept. 2017 and the photo is now on her site--however, the old one is still there also and is confusing for those who don't know the difference. Would you consider removing the photo you put on the site? Her name is incorrect and her birth date is incorrect on the headstone. I've been trying to get FindAGrave to correct the name and the birth date but they won't do it because of the photo of the original--and incorrect--headstone. We would greatly appreciate it if you would delete the photo you submitted. Thank you so much!!

Would you consider deleting one of the three photos of my great-great grandmother's headstone, so that I can add a photo of her? She already has the maximum--five photos on her site, so I am unable to add her picture.

We have made the changes you requested. Would you like her back?
|Nancy Berntson||RE: Elden Charles Bird|
Thank you so much for your help
|Nancy Berntson||Elden Charles Bird|
Collins - You have Elden as a child of Charles Edward and Ida Theola Coles Bird, I do not have him as their child can you tell me where you got that information? I have them as only having 5 children: Ruth, Reed, Duane, Roger and J. Boyd. Thank you - Nancy

My apologies, this information was submitted as an edit for another user and I believe the year of death was entered as the spouse link. I declined thinking that the edit was made to add him as the spouse. It has been fixed.
|BJ Maguire||RE: Mary Brady (1879-1920)|
Yes, Her name was Mary Price.S She married Bernard Brady. They were my Grandmother's parents. I added her Maiden name. Hopefully that will clear up any confusion for people searching. My Brady's were Irish that moved to Scotland before coming to America. They were Coal miners in Scotland, Pennsylvania USA then Mineral Miners and farmers in Kansas. My Grandmother moved to Washington DC where she met my Grandfather. My father and I both born in Washington DC.
|BJ Maguire||RE: Mary Brady (1879-1920)|
Sorry, I have not been on in some time. Mary Brady was my Grandmother, Mary Price was her Mother. Do you have the grave #. I will look at it.
There is a story on her page and at the end it says "The life sketch is dated February 13, 1932". Do you know anything about this life sketch, such as, who wrote it and where it came from?
