Bio and Links
Bio Photo My favorite part of Find A Grave is fulfilling photo request. I have been roaming cemeteries for approx. 40 years. I like Find A Grave so that I might help someone else discover their ancestors. I also work for our local genealogy society to photo as many headstones as possible. We have over 1200 cemeteries in our county on farms, in cities, in backyards, in the woods, across creeks. My tools include a machete, chainsaw, whisk broom, white foam board to better direct bright sunlight. Sometimes a string trimmer, shovel, always boots when not in some manicured public cemetery. I work part time for a funeral home, spent 15 years in EMS/Rescue, and in Vietnam back in the day. Seen my share of the death & dying.

Ross, thanks so much for fulfilling my photo request for the Williamson photos. I really appreciate it! Thanks also for your work on Find A Grave and the huge number of fulfillments you have done.

I have several other request in the area if you check my page. Wish I could help with locations in Maplewood, but unsure.

Thanks again!

Thank you for finding that she is not buried at Evergreen Cemetery. The other memorial for her says Willow Dale, and this helps me know which one is where she is buried. I appreciate your work.
