I have been walking cemeteries for years and they always invoked many thoughts about the persons there. These are not just memorials with the letters and dates slowly fading but represent a person. Each one, whether living 1 day or 100 years has affected the lives of other people and changed them in some way. Ever watched a parent and child or a group of people - as time progresses they begin to act like each other. So in that way the people these memorials represent live on.
I have completed taking photos of all stones in Machpelah (LeRoy, NY) and Mount Pleasant (Fowlerville, NY) I am just about done adding all the names to the cemeteries and will be posting pictures during 2016 as time permits. If you need a pic sooner just request a photo and I will find it. Be patient it is a long project. I have moved to Arcade NY and am currently working thru Arcade Rural Cemetery.
Please let me know if I can correct anything. If for some reason something I have posted is bothersome to you do not hesitate to contact me and we can work it out.
My goal is to completely photograph all stones in the surrounding cemeteries. Then add them as needed to the memorials here at Find A Grave. I have completed a few so far and working on a couple others. I do not create memorials or post pictures if a person could be living unless requested.
