Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War, a second generation hillbilly and recently commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel. Being a career NCO (former USAF Technical Sergeant), I occasionally struggle with this. However, the stripes usually win.

My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I'm also very active at photographing Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate, Campbell County, Kentucky.

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative or close friend to someone (simply because the guidelines say that "you don't have to") - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.

Wikipedias definition of "guidelines":

A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are not binding and are not enforced..

Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use.
I always put some kind of note in the photo caption regarding the photo I took, usually the date and place taken. If there was no marker, I will take a photo of the lot (or lot marker, if available) and note it in the caption.

The tombstone at Vine Street Hill Cemetery, In Cinn.,OH indicates he was a Mason. The emblem engraved on his tombstone DOES NOT appear the be a square and Compasses of a Free Mason. I believe it is an emblem for a trade organization possibly the
Order of United American Mechanics

Transfer Request
Hey there Rob, thanks for having information available! Would you be willing to transfer Ivy Searles #47017362 and Vernon Searles 136445796? They are my great grandfather and great grandmother.

RE: MSgt Dianna Fast
Hi Rob:
Ohio,right (Wright Patterson)? I was stationed at Loring A.F.B in northern Maine from 85-94(also my home state/born and raised there) when they shut us down and am now in South Dakota...

Would you like for me to transfer Dianna to your care ? I didn't know her personally but create memorials as my way of thanking our Veterans and their families 😊

~ Beth~

P.S. You might want to pull your photo request for her stone as it probably won't be there for at least 30 days from the day of her service at BHNC.I laid my parents to rest at BHNC on 8 September and was told that it would be about 30 days before their stone was placed.So I'm probably looking at next week maybe before I can get a picture of their stone and add it to their memorial....

Re: Corporal Frank Gilb
I noticed that you just added a birth year of 1841 for him. May I ask where you found that info? We've been trying to pin down an accurate year for him, but it seems to be all over the place. Any additional info you have would be appreciated.

Hi Rob
Thanks for getting back to me. I am trying so hard to find a photo of Elsie to show my daughter.
If you come across one, please let me know.
