Bio and Links
Bio Photo I want to say "hello" to everyone that takes the time to sit and do this for the one's that walked this earth with us and before us.. I think it is a wonderful way to spend my time to respect those in my family tree, and others. I can't think of a better tribute to a loved one..thank goodness for this site !

I wanted to touch on a subject I have been hearing volunteers complaining about lately; and I want to voice my opinion on this issue.. I am a Volunteer.. if I go out and take a gravestone photo for someone else and put it on this site; then I consider that picture to be a gift.. just like my time, gas, and energy to go do it is a gift. If the requester of the photo wants to add that picture on their family trees, that's ok with me; as far as I am concerned; that picture does not belong to me; it was a gift.. use it anyway you want to; I don't care; if you want to give or me credit; that's nice and respectful to do. The bottom line is that I consider this as my time of doing the Lord's work.. and I give it and the photo's freely.. Gail

John H Boyer 9923360
It seems strange that there are two John H Boyer born on the same day, Jul 28, 1824, in the same location, Herkimer Co., New York, and both are buried in Long Prairie, Todd Co., Minnesota. One died on Feb 1910 and is buried in Long Prairie Cemetery, and the other died on Mar 3, 1912 and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery. In the one case the informant was Nancy E Boyer, and in the other case the wife was Nancy E Boyer. Was this the same person, and was he initially buried in one cemetery, but later moved to the other cemetery, and the dates are not the dates of death but the dates of internment.

RE: Where is photo ?
I'm very sorry. I have a picture for the other Esther Davis listed. After I uploaded the picture and checked the dates I realized it was the other Esther. You may have to do another request. Sorry for the troubles. I will look again when I go back to this cemetery.

Gertrude "Gertie" Moon
Hi, I saw a message you wrote on Gertrude Moon's page, saying that she was your great grandmother's half sister. I'm distantly related to Gertrude's step mom, Clara Smith.
I've been trying to fill in more of the family tree on that side and was wondering if you'd like to talk and exchange information? I currently don't have a Maynetta A. Moon on our tree and I'm curious where she fits in.

Hemstreet in Riverside, Oneonta
Because you manage memorials for Nathan and Amy Hemstreet in Riverside Cemetery, we thought you might like to know that there is a new, better photo for Amy's marker (92333501), and we've added a memorial with a photo for Estella(?) Hemstreet Huether (163776288). If she is in your tree, we'd gladly make a transfer.

Michael Jeffrey Peterson, 146788
Thank you for leaving flowers on Michael Jeffrey Peterson, 146788 in West Point. I always feel happier when I see your smiling face. On the West Point inventory, I went from 749 and 71%, to 861 and 95% photographed. Well worth the effort.

Improved Photos
Look at my photos that I posted to memorial 147136 & 146788. You'll see the advantage of my recent photo run.

For Bailee McCullock 147136, I guess the original portrait photo had deteriorated. So they had the photo replaced with her Last photo. That makes me feel Sad & Happy at the same time.

For Michael Peterson 146788, that was just a classic "moment in time" in which I captured, and brought to Find A Grave.

It's too bad that I don't get paid for my work, My wife says I do--With Blessings!

RE: Robert Julius Diebold, 146846
I don't think that the photo was stolen, just getting replaced. Most of these stone companies have a guarantee with a replacement policy. I was just so proud that YOU took the initiative to shoot a portrait.

In my virtual cemeteries, I have a file called "photo inserts", and I have about 40 of these portrait shots. I am wrapping up a full inventory of Lindquist cemetery on Washington Blvd in Ogden. Then I'm going to do a re-inventory of West Point.
It's only 71% photographed.
Gotta do something to git away from my wife! LOL
C U in the Graveyard!
