Bio and Links
Any pictures of graves I take can be used on any site if you need them, you won't have to ask me. If it is a portrait of someone I have uploaded, please do ask if you can use it. A lot of the portraits I have uploaded have come from my family's collection of photos.

Note: There aren't a whole lot of cemeteries close by me so therefore, I don't have a lot of grave photos unless I went to the cemetery.

Hi Laura,

I'm not sure if you were the one that had previously requested a photo of his marker. I checked today and the marker is down. I have added the photo to his page. Since you are the owner of the memorial, I thought I'd leave you this message.

Take Care,

Looking for the grave of my Aunt, Alice N Jonard maiden name Dillon Mem# 178306225 Husband Lawrence Jonard # 178306650

Was told they are in a Cemetery in Mount Pleasant, I can not find a cemetery listed there. His father # 167408002 is in Upland Heights Cemetery that you have worked. Have any ideas?

Juzefa Murawski (Szychulda)

You made a suggestion on my great-mothers memorial: "Her name is listed as Josephine in both the cemetery records and in her obituary."

While that is correct, Josephine is not her given name, rather, it is the Americanized version. Many other records show Juzefa as her first name. Here is an example:

Name Juzefa Szychulda Murawska
Gender Female
Birth Place Russ. Poland
Spouse Jan Murawski
Child Czestawa Murawski
FHL Film Number 1852607
Household Members
Name Age
Czestawa Murawski
Juzefa Szychulda Murawska
Jan Murawski

Thank you for the suggestion, I truly appreciate it. I may edit the profile to show Josephine as nickname. Have a great day!

RE: Margaret Heiskel
It has been years since I took that photo but I believe it is located close to the middle of sec. 10. Good luck.

Hi Laura,
The cemetery office is closed on Saturdays and Sundays or used to be. As to your other question the Augusta Co. Historical Society decided to do a complete listing of the cemetery and that was about 2 years ago. I'm sure that they must have it all completed by this time. My understanding was that they were doing a total listing including wording, etc., for every stone. If you can't go there over this weekend I would still contact Suzanne next week.
Best of luck to you.

Photo request for Albert Salvatora

The date of death you have listed for Albert Salvatora photo request is 1926. The only Albert Salvatora included in the records for Queen of Heaven died on 2/29/1976. Could this be the Albert Salvatora you are requesting? Queen of Heaven did not open until 1955.

Please advise,

I don't live in Staunton and don't drive very much anymore so if you can get there that would be the best option. Below is the link to the cemetery map. Margaret is in sec. 10 BUT I would suggest you call the cemetery office and talk to Suzanne, very nice and helpful. She can look it up for you and even take you right to the grave. Just be there before the cemetery office closes for the day. It used to close at 2 p.m. but that was years ago so be sure to ask when they close. That white marble is almost impossible to read regardless of the photo.

First, thank you for your diligence in your volunteer effort on findagrave.

I would like to have my parents' graves transferred to me. They are Edward and Anna Gawell buried in Holy Cross Cemetery. Thank you!

Thank you so much, Laura, for taking the photo of Grace Uhl's headstone. I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to write and thank you. Please know that your time and effort is greatly appreciated.
