Hi, my husband (Steve Patterson) and I are interested in our genealogy histories and enjoy the "detective process" of finding our ancestors. After unexpectedly finding images of my great-grandparents' tombstones on the web, I was thrilled - I'd never seen their tombstones before. This helped us to realize that documenting cemeteries on the web is a wonderful way to help other genealogists find their relatives. We enjoy this tremendously and have started planning our vacations around which cemeteries we want to visit. |
I am leaning on the tombstone of Alpheus Osborn, my great-great-great grandfather who lived in Fairfax, Iowa.

Thanks so much for posting in printable size. Not too often do I see this! Thanks thanks!
|Anne Winters||Dana cemetery sign|
Thank you for clearing that up!

I'm puzzled by the photo of the Dana cemetery sign. It appears to be the entrance to a cornfield. Were The headstones moved to a different area?

I have left some edits for you to review for Vera Keene. Thanks.

|George Del Monte||About Eliza Cecilia ?? McCoy #26577381|
Cathy, I'm not sure why I'm paying so much attention to Eliza, but, nevertheless, I've stuck my nose into this: Since her Gravestone shows her name to be Eliza A. McCoy, yet her Find A Grave name is Eliza J. McCoy, could it be that the "J" is the first letter of her maiden name? I'm sure this is just a coincidence, but, since I dislike empty spaces, I habitually use JaneDoe for a female's last name as a placeholder in the absence of the real Maiden name (and similarly JohnDoe for a man's missing last name).

|Linda (Duncan) & Travis||RE: Jocie D. Byard|
Thank you so very much. My sister is good friends with Jocie. I was shocked when I went to see if anyone had done her husbands page and seen her.
Thank you again.

|Bryan Anderson||RE: Abraham J. Endsley|
It's my policy to properly cite where I got the photographs.
With warm regards,
I do like the transfer. Thanks so much!
|Bryan Anderson||Abraham J. Endsley|
I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to documentation, Abraham J. Endsley was a member of this unit. This is confirmed by his gravestone.
I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but I want to eventually publish something. So, with your permission, I would like to use your photograph of the grave of Abraham J. Endsley (Find A Grave Memorial# 33500828). Please let me know if this would be acceptable.
Thank you, I appreciate your time.
With warm regards,
