Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began my work with Find A Grave, as I imagine most others do, by adding the missing graves of my family. This soon grew into the desire to give back to others by taking any volunteer photos that I could in the cemeteries that I was already visiting.

Now I have several projects in the works in my limited free time. The biggest being the photographing and documentation of the local cemeteries in my immediate area. I have to say that which started out as a way to give back has turned out to be very rewarding. It makes me smile when I get simple thank-yous for the photos I submit.

When I was able to locate (through the guidance of many others) the first two graves that had eluded me. It was a very happy day indeed.

I mostly work around the Ohio counties of Gallia, Jackson and Vinton. If by chance I create a duplicate memorial please let me know. It is purely an accident in most cases. If not I will be happy to explain to you my reasons. Any transfers of family members will gladly be made, provided I am not related to them myself.

Feel free to use my photos but if you share them online please give me credit for taking the photo.

If I leave a penny on a veteran's grave it is because I visited them in person not just clicked on their memorial.

Thanks so much for going to the cemetery again to get pictures of my grandpa's military marker, and right before Memorial Day! The cemetery looks beautiful and green. Thanks if you were the one who put the American flag there.

Hi Bob, I know you've worked very hard on the Mt Zion Cemetery. I just added 2 more people to the other Zion Cemetery. They are surname Trimmer. Not sure if I put them in the right place or not. Can you help me out???

Joyce McClaskey in Hamden Cemetery
Good evening!

Thank you for adding her to the Hamden Cemetery database. Joyce is my mother, and due to my illness and wheelchair use, I have not been able to visit her grave, or do any more photography for FindAGrave.. Thank you for the add, including the obituary I wrote for the local paper, I now feel like I can visit her whenever I want.
