Bio

I currently live in South Carolina but I mainly focus on cemeteries in Wayne County, NY where I was born and raised but also have interests in other areas where my ancestors are from. I gather all of my information from public records and try hard to omit living relations from obituaries written in this century. If you have a reason something should be removed due to error or a personal matter please don't hesitate to contact me via email and I'll try to rectify it at my earliest convenience. If you would like your relative transferred, don't hesitate to request it.

I realize sometimes my photos are not the best, but I try to leave the gravesite as undisturbed as possible unless it is of my family. Going forward I am trying to always leave GPS coordinates unless without cell reception.

This is a hobby I have been interested in spending some of my free time on for the past few years in relation to my interests in genealogy and history. This was brought on my great-grandmother telling me about her ancestors. As a young girl I took it upon myself to find the stories of mine and how they made it here, and now my search is to help uncover the stories of how others made it here and how they prospered and how they failed once arriving.

I have always gravitated towards the history and lives of the common versus the celebrity. I'd rather find and document the life of Mrs. Jones who founded whatever aid society for a sleepy little town or someone who died young for whatever reason after running off to Long Beach on their grand adventure. I want to help record the stories and lives of those who helped build this country quietly and methodically. Not the George Washington's or Andrew Carnegie's.

I want to remember their birth dates and anniversaries and the people they helped along the way, I want to connect a face with the name and stone when I can. Give me your urban poor, your hard working farmers and the enterprising businessmen and their families along with anybody in-between. Let's remember together those of one of America's first boomtowns and the surrounding area and how we as immigrants and their descendants changed the landscape unequivocally.
