Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have prepared a memorial for your immediate family member and you would like it transferred to you, please use the Suggest a Correction link located by clicking the Edit tab in the upper right hand corner of each memorial. In your message, please state your relationship to the deceased. I will consider distant family members, friends and totally unrelated people if you have something to contribute which I have not done already.

Also, if you find any errors I have made, please use the Suggest a Correction link. I appreciate people helping me fix my errors. Also please send any additional information you have (including Family Links) and I will add it to the memorial. Find A Grave gives 30 days to make changes, but I try to get it done quicker than that. If you don't hear back from me within 3 weeks, please feel free to ask again.

Thanks to all who flower any of the memorials which I created, but especially my parents.

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's graves at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to without giving me credit. Simply indicate 2006-2014 J.Sullivan on Find A Grave. I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. If you want to use them for commercial purposes or to create your own web site, that is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. Please note that other members may have different opinions on this and you should honor their wishes. It is illegal to copy a photo without the photographer's consent.

On these memorials you will find links to the contributor pages for Find A Grave members who have passed on.

Important admin notices posted in the forums:

Per Mark, the admin:

1. Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. You should however make every effort to locate the final disposition and update it as soon as possible.

2. See part 1. Not everyone in my direct family has been located and thus none of them are linked. I make notes in bios of those who have known locations. Such as "Son of X and Y" or "Also father of X". What I do is look for new listings and ask for updates when a generous member has finally found a missing relative.

3. No duplicates are allowed. Period.

This is Find A Grave and long-term unknown dispositions solely for the purpose of creating family links is outside the main intent of the website.

Per AJ, the admin:

Photograph the grave/gravesite "in-situ", or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's "good deed" just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos...but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site.

Note for self, this is a link I might need to know how to make one day:

John Crabtree York (Find A Grave Memorial# 5705816)
Hello! Very sorry you have gotten all the requests for this person. He lived in Morgan County. I added images of census records to the memorial to document his not living in Hendricks County. I hope that helps cut down on the needless requests. Thanks, Richard

Elvira Shoemaker King
Thank you so much for taking the time and getting and posting the picture of my second great grandmothers headstone. I was surprised it has her maiden name only on the headstone so wasn't sure about some other information that had her death listed as Shoemaker as well. So happy to have that. Jenny, grateful grandaughter.

Ella W. Cox Alderson
Please accept a change for Ella Winona Cox Alderson. Her death certificate states that she died in Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana. I had mistakenly thought she had died in Oregon. Sorry for the error. Ella was a sister to my paternal grandmother.

RE: Thompson Cemetery, Bee Lick, KY
I photographed all of the readable stones. Bee Lick, Kentucky is at the junction of three counties: Lincoln, Pulaski, Rockcastle.
The Thompson Cemetery which I photographed is actually in Pulaski County. I would have thought that Pulaski Historical Society would have it listed.
It is listed in the Rockcastle County, Kentucky Cemetery book, because it is so close to the county lines.

I have an appointment this morning. You may email me at What was his wife's full name? I will try to help you later.

Kindest Regards,
Valerie J. Thompson

Frank and Louise Donovan - Holy Cross - Butte, MT
Just to let you know Frank (d.1948)and Louise (d.1974)Donovan are buried side by side and his headstone is a military marker for service in WWI. Their children, Robert and Mary Louise are next to them as well. Someone else has claimed your request for their Frank and Louise headstones but if they fail to post them, I have photos for you. (I am happy to email the photos to you as well) Pat
