Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Bill Ridge and I am researching the various lines of my family history (Ridge, Biles, Forepaugh, and Lownie with associated families). I am not on Find A Grave to see how many memorials I can generate. Rather, I would like to pay tribute to some of those who came before me.

I enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers requested through Findagrave. On occasion, I may also photograph markers near the ones that are requested and I may create a memorial for that grave if one does not already exist.

You have my permission to use my FAG photographs in order to document your own family history.

Please ask for a transfer (or provide data through the Edit screen) if I "own" a memorial that pertains to a relative of yours. I have created those memorials so that interested parties may find information about members of their family.

Hello. I think we may be distant cousins. Would like more information on Thomas Naylor. His other son Charles Wesley was my GX3.

Hi William -

I just wanted to thank you for the photos of the Fell;s in the Plumstead Friends Meeting Cemetery. I used the in my Family Tree and gave you the credit for taking them.

All the best,


PS: I did own an O'Day 25, TR that I would have loved to sail up your way. Too old now, I guess and living in Texas, there was no way of doing it.

I added photos for Anna and Howard LaRue. The memorial says Annetta, but the details and the spouses details matched, so I was pretty certain I got the right folks. (I added the photo to the husband as well, even though there was no photo request).

Their father William Frederick Ludwig is a Civil War hero. Wm. was wounded at Bull Run & Gettysburg. Survived, married & had 11 children. I & my husband are both Navy Veterans are very much intersted in him & linking him to all his children. Their are 5 of Joseph's siblings we are still looking for. Thank you for your time.

Thank you for processing the updates for the many memorials you added to the Little Zion cemetery. I recently had access to some of their church records so I was able to update the memorials with more information. Having that information on the memorial will help others to be able to easily find in person if they choose. Thanks again.
