I've been a taphophile since I was a child growing up in SE Michigan. One year in summer school one of my favorite teachers of all time invited the class to come do work in local cemeteries with him... everyone looked disgusted, I was excited. That summer we did all of the preservation work needed at Mt. Avon & Mount Vernon Cemeteries. That teacher passed away just 3 years later and was buried at Mount Vernon Cemetery. I've done everything from excavating sunken headstones to cementing cracked stones to landscaping and full gravesite restorations. The help of other volunteers on Find A Grave has helped me in many ways and I'm here to try to give back. If there is anything I can do to help you please send me a message. I am researching Avedian, Abgarian, Arakelian, Coyle, Christenson, Johnson, Zaratzian & allied families.Current project is to add every missing interment for Wildwood Cemetery in Winchester, MA.
