Bio

I've worked on photographing all the stones in various cemeteries near where I live and where I spend the summer, but I also love to stop and take pictures when I travel, which usually doesn't give me time to inventory the whole cemetery. I like to imagine the lives that went with the names on the stones. Even the simplest headstones tell interesting stories. I try to take the best pictures I can and then crop and edit them to show the engravings best. If I think my picture adds any detail, I will add it even if other pictures exist. I hope other contributors will later add better pictures than some of mine as well. Some days the lighting is good and some days it isn't. Anyone who wants to use pictures I have taken for personal use is granted permission, including use on Ancestry or similar sites. By far, the most memorials I have created are in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Pauls Valley, which had many undocumented stones . I think I have at least 1500 memorials there and many many more photographs.The cemeteries I have fully photographed are as follows:Oklahoma--Payne county: Mount Vernon (Nov 2015-Dec 2017), Paradise (May 2019), Elm Grove (Nov 2017), Oak Grove (Jan 2018), Sunset Memorial Gardens (Nov 2017-July 2018), Clarkson (August through September 2019)Oklahoma--Blaine County: Cherryvale Cemetery (June through September 2019)Oklahoma--Garvin County: Mount Olivet Cemetery (October 2016--April 2019) . Oklahoma--Oklahoma County: Valley Cemetery (August 31, 2019), New Hope Church Cemetery (August 31, 2019)Missouri: Boon Cemetery (Newton County) in October 2018, Burchard Cemetery (Pulaski County) in February 2018 New Mexico: Campo Santo of Ghost Ranch (Rio Arriba County) in June 2018.I'm currently working on Fairlawn Cemetery in Payne County, Oklahoma; Whitebead Cemetery in Garvin County, Oklahoma; Del Norte Cemetery in Rio Grande County, Colorado; South Saint Mary's Cemetery in Huerfano County, Colorado; and Grenville Cemetery in Union County, New Mexico. I've just started working on Sunnylane Cemetery in Oklahoma City (completed section 18, working on section 10), and on Summit View Cemetery in Guthrie, OK.
