Bio and Links
Bio Photo "It is said every person has three deaths.
The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.
The 2nd death is when the body is lowered into the grave,never again to be seen in the flesh.
The 3rd and final death comes much later,when all who knew that person have joined them in the afterlife,and the name, even existence of that person vanishes from knowledge."
For this reason I make myself available to do tombstone searches and take photos of same in my area. I have retired from active work and enjoy doing genealogy research on my family. I will attempt to locate and photograph any requests. I do not date nor watermark my photos. Permission is granted to use my photos for personal purposes only. Please contact me for other purposes.

I am going to add a pet peeve here. People who are only interested in numbers should at least wait a respectful time before posting a memorial to allow a family member to do just that. Posting a memorial a day prior to burial is very disrespectful of the family.

Think I have them all straightened out and you won't have to do anything with your pictures. Since I have maintenance of these people I just changed the dates and the linkage. The only thing left is the person who linked Bessie with her father needs to change that. Then they should all be matched to their tombstones. Thanks for getting all the tombstone pictures. I would never have caught the mistakes if you hadn't posted the one.

I have been working on this family and this tombstone you have posted is for this guy's son. I got the birth dates and death dates from his death certificate. So the tombstone with the dates of 1911 to 1934 has to be his son. If he were the son of Lewis & Emma, then his dad would have to have been 74 yrs old and that is highly unlikely. I think you need to remove this picture. I will put Lewis P. Gass with the dates of 1911 to 1934 on Find A Grave and link him to his father Lewis & mother Grace.

#45873048 Ethlyn Ethel Blankenship Nutter Conner Lynch
Hi Arrowkeeper!
I am doing more research on my 2nd great aunt Ethel who has been very hard to research. You provided a photo of her marker, however, after looking more and being puzzled, I have come to the conclusion that the marker is definitely Not hers. So, would you please remove the photo as I am unable to do so. I have already removed her date of death as it is unknown still.

Here's the Problem . . . .
1) Photo of Marker does not match her date of birth
2) Her Mother said her middle initial was L not M as on this stone
3) She remarried 2 times after his 1st husband, Harry E Nutter's death - last married name on stone should be Lynch
4) No sources stating date of death at this time
5) Obituary states age at death 81 but no month, year given. This should make approximate death year 1970.

My cousin and I are still searching for documents and where she is buried. If you should run across anything, I would love to have the help.

Thank You so much and have a lovely day!
