Bio and Links
Bio Photo FOLKS:
****If my name is below the photo on a memorial page, please click on the photo to enlarge it and access an explanatory caption, which in most cases includes a transcription of every legible word on the lot, whether legible in the photo or not. I also include as complete a burial list as I can for as many lots as I can. If you have an issue with the photo for any reason, contact me before issuing a duplicate photo request, which will most likely send another graver on a wild goose chase for an impossible photo.
****In many cases, just because you have received an automatically generated email telling you a photo has been uploaded--don't assume that's the whole story. I nearly always put in edits to update or add information not already part of the memorial page. It could take weeks for those edits to be approved by the page creator--unless it's me--(they usually, but not always, are). So check back from time to time.
****It's a good idea to identify pages by their memorial numbers rather than by name, as names are duplicative and can change as the result of research. Green-Wood's online burial search--the source of most Green-Wood memorial pages, is generally dependable, but nevertheless loaded with small but misleading errors that are inadvertently copied into Find-a-Grave by the page creators.

Bob, you are my hero! Thank you so much for photographing what I requested--and so quickly--thank you, thank you, thank you.

I do look forward to seeing the other sides with the Smiths and Thompsons, as you seem to imply in your transcription memo?

Thank you a million times,

Patti Gillespie

Thank you Bob for sending the gravestone photo along. It was interesting to discover that both Carl Ferdinand and Ferdinand Jr appear to be buried in the same grave site. Unfortunately, they died within 2 yrs of each other, but I can't tell who died first!
