Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfer policy: I am currently willing to transfer 100% of my memorials (as long as they don't have a family connection to me), no questions asked. For all of Florida cemeteries, I save all of my original photos and I can probably work out where in the cemetery the photo came from. If that could be of use, don't hesitate to ask.

Royal Palm Memorial Gardens in Punta Gorda, Florida: I am able to walk Royal Palm taking photos every two-to-three weekends. I have finished walking the entire cemetery and entered every memorial, and only need to upload all the photos.

Charlotte Memorial Gardens in Punta Gorda, Florida: same comments as for Royal Palm above except I have only begun walking and photographing. My wild guess is that there are probably 4,000 memorials, so only a small fraction are currently online here.

Oakside Cemetery in Zephyrhills, Florida: I am able to walk Oakside every two-to-three weekends. Most of the cemetery appears to be in the system but it was very low on photos. In uploading photos, I am finding where many corrections are needed. Thank you to those who are promptly and patiently making those corrections.

St. Mary's Cemetery in Schenectady, New York: I used to walk this cemetery 10+ years ago and probably never will again due to geography. I cannot recall how much of the cemetery I logged - maybe 50%? Sorry for no photos and sorry I won't be able to provide much more info than what is here.

I looked for this memorial at Saratoga National Memorial cemetery today (22 July 2017) and could not find it under any of a variety of spellings. If you have other information, I can try again next time I am up this way.

RE: Mary Jane Knight Folsom
Hi Colby-

Thank you for contacting me. According to my research: Mary Jane Fobes passed away in Minot, Maine on January 25, 1892 according to Also on, their marriage license lists her last name as Knight as does the death records of Dennet A. (misspelled as Bennett); Philander; and Edwin. And to your third question regarding her parents, I'm not sure why those were listed as her parents since I do not have them in my tree, or on her Memorial. I typically list the parents in my writing. Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention. I have removed them for when/if I locate proof of who her parents are.

Best Regards-

Richard Robideau @ Gerald Solomon Saratoga Nat'l Cemetery
Hello: No record of interment is found. If you click on the cemetery you will find the web site for Nationwide Gravesite Locator (for the military cemeteries) there are no Robideau's listed for the Gerald Solomon Cemetery. I noted in his obituary that a service would be at a later date. You may want to consider deleting this memorial until such time as there is an actual interment. If I inquire at the office, they will use this same Gravesite Locator, have done this before. Take care. Bill Preston in Saratoga County.

Thanks for setting up the memorial. To me she is a second cousin. My sources include her obituary from the Englewood FL Sun newspaper and the obituary for her father in Charlotte NC. My efforts are to get her father and his siblings tracked down. They were very close to my own father (who lived next door for a time to Catherine's father and grandfather in Charlotte NC). If you want to transfer her and her husband Arthur, that is fine.

Hi Colby,
Thanks so much for taking this picture of my Aunt's grave. I've never been able to go pay my respects, there. She's very loved.

In kind regards,

Lisa Walsh

RE: Juzefa Protnicki
This was just a simple observation of facts. There were two (2) Find A Grave sites that were linked to this individual and one had information the other did not and they could have been merged into one useful, aggregate page. Now, aside from the link I have provided in the 'Sources' column to the one Find A Grave information, there is no useful link from the 'normal' Find A Grave link under her 'Hints.' This isn't about ownership or who got their info. up first. This isn't a pissing contest.
It was, and still is a simple request to create a union of the parts to make a more useful whole - nothing more.
