I am taking pictures of headstones mostly at Lakeland Memorial Gardens. Find A Grave has been so helpful in tracing my roots and I hope my pictures may help someone else. I have no problem with use of my pictures for your family trees.

To find out more information on your Polk County relatives, especially marriages, I would suggest the Polk County Historical & Genealogical Library at

Thanks for connecting Wesley to his parents. It is also very thoughtful of you to provide that link to the Polk County Historical & Genealogical Society.

You took a photo of the above headstone in early 2012 and posted it on his memorial and at the time his wife was still alive. She passed in late 2012. I would imagine her death year has since been added. I had requested a photo of her stone and got a message from a volunteer saying that the cemetery will not tell him/her where people are buried (unless she is family). I was hoping you might know where this stone is within the cemetery. I'd love for an updated photo to be taken and posted on both of their memorials.

Thank you.

Thank You!
I went to add photos of my parents graves and discovered you had already done it, so I added a photo instead. Thank you so much. I live quite a distance away and don't get there very often. I'll pay it forward by fulfilling open requests for graves that are a bit closer to home. If you would like to transfer the records for Carl W. Withey and Eleanor Milo Withey, I'd be happy to assume responsibility for them.
