Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Richmond, Virginia area and have been taking gravestone photos for over 3 years after I discovered what a great tool a digital camera is for that kind of work. I am trying to photograph as many of the cemetries as I can in the area. I also take my camera whenever I travel and and usually end up with photos from some distant cemeteries.

I am the volunteer coordinator for the clean up of East End Cemetery in Richmond. Please contact me if you are interested in helping with the clean up effort.

The vast majority of the gravestone pictures that I've entered are of people I don't know. I've entered them to help others. If you'd like me to fix, add to, and/or delete any of your family members please email me and I'll make the change as quickly as possible. If you would like a copy of the original picture, let me know and I will be glad to email it to you.

If you would like me to transfer an entry to you, please let me know. I will be glad to do that.

Please request transfers and updates/corrections through the Suggest a Correction function so that I make sure I update the correct entry.

Note that much of the CSA related info for burials at Hollywood Cemetery was provided by Scott Hutchinson.

Hi,
Katie Emig Harbold is my great aunt. My mom always told me that her middle name is Baer. Where did you get the name Bertha?

Thanks!
Sandy

Freeman graves in East Galesburg, Illinois
Hi John. Back in 2011 you added a photo to my memorials for Thomas & Bridget Freeman. Thank you so much for doing so. I see that you live a long way from Knox CO, IL. I was born there and have lived within 50 miles all my life. I have visited the cemetery many times and have regular photos from way back before we all went digital. This week I finally took the time to walk the entire cemetery and get a picture of every grave.

Frank Jones
Thank you for checking on the Frank Jones grave. We're having a very difficult time locating him. For now, I have a memorial for him in Paulding county Ohio. The family was in , Dinwiddie county, VA in 1900 and by 1910 Celista, spelled incorrectly in the 1900 Federal census, was a widow living with her older son in Paulding county Ohio again. She had two daughters that remained in VA. My thinking is that Frank may have died down there and that it's the reason Celista came back here. The daughters that stayed in Virginia are Ada Mae Jones Spiers and Sarah Jane Jones Reeves. They are both buried in Blandford Cemetery. I believe Frank died around 1908, (I just have a feeling it was in VA), with info in Celista's obituary in 1918 which states Frank died "about 10 years ago". It also stated that one of the daughters lived in Disputanta, VA. Again, thanks for you efforts.

I am so very grateful that you found my grandfather's gravesite and provided a photograph. The work you are doing to restore these cemeteries is so appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Permission to use your Photo
You added a photo to Linden Street Cemetery in Allentown, PA. It is of a large plaque for the soldiers of the American Revolution and War of 1812. May I use this photo and/or edit out their portion to add to their individual memorials? I will show you are the originator of the memorial. Thank you!!

RE: Samuel LANDIS #23196718
Yes, my apologies. A different Mary Wenger is Samuel's mother, but her gravestone memorial is not listed on Find-A-Grave. Please add his father, John L. LANDES #26454390. Also, please add Samuel's birth date of Nov. 6, 1835. Thank you for being so diligent.

Samuel LANDIS #23196718
You declined my suggested edit that Samuel's father is John L. LANDES #26454390. Samuel is listed in the 1850 Census living with his parents at the age of 15 (born abt 1835). His gravestone shows he died 05 Jul 1904 and that he was 68 years old, 7 mos. & 29 dys. 1904 - 68 = 1836-7 mos = abt Nov. 6, 1835. He never married, but he lived with three of his unmarried sisters, Anna, Elizabeth and Mary (twin) Landis, as shown in the 1870 and 1880 census records. His twin, Mary #23196690, has the same birth date of Nov. 6, 1835. All 3 siblings are buried near Samuel in Pike Mennonite Church cemetery. I can forward all 3 census records to you. I would appreciate your connecting Samuel to his father, John L. LANDES #26454390. Thank you.

Caroline Harris DeJarnette "Carrie" Staples Daniel
Thank you for changing the name on this entry. Just so you´ĺl know, in all records that I´ve seen for her, she just shows up as Caroline HARRIS Staples. But I see that DeJarnette is on her tombstone.

I think it´s possible that someone had mixed her up with her mother as far as the name goes----but I have no proof, so I also included the DeJarnette.

Thought you might be interested, but there´s no need for you to change anything else.

Regards
