Photos for Find A Grave
We fulfill photo requests posted on Find A Grave in Gillette, Wyoming and as we travel. The photos here are the unedited versions.
The purpose of this page is to host the unedited versions of the photos on Find A Grave which has an 8 MiB file size limit. Many of the photos exceed that so I had to recompress them at a lower quality before uploading to that website.
Find A Grave has cemetery records, some genealogy, virtual memorials, and photos of graves and cemeteries. Family, friends, and genealogists use the site to see the markers of those they can't visit or to complete their research. They can request photos and that is where we come in.
We do our best to photograph the graves with the same quality as the other photo sections on this website. Due to the weather, shade, or unevenness of the marker on its base they may not be excellent, but the photos will be in focus, high resolution, centered, and readable. Reflective markers will be at an angle to prevent us from being in the photo.
If you need a photo of a cemetery or grave then use Find A Grave to make a request. If it's in the Gillette area or a place we travel to we will try to fulfill it.
We try not to trample all over the graves and don't touch or clean the markers and items left behind. Despite that it takes some walking, kneeling, squatting, and hovering to get the shot. The photos are for friends, family, and researchers so the person wont die the final death of being forgotten. If the dead or living are watching we hope you understand.
The full sized photos are licensed as WTFPL version 2.
The names and dates in the tables is what appears on the markers. The information on the markers may be wrong. The photo label is based on my intention. If I intended to capture the marker and blur the background it will be shown as marker even if it is an area shot. Area shots are when I stand further away to capture fences, statues, and possibly show nearby markers. Photos labeled back mean the back of the marker.
Campbell County, Wyoming
Mount Pisgah Cemetery
On a hill in the center of Gillette, Wyoming is Mount Pisgah. It is the biggest cemetery for Campbell County with thousands of people buried there. Graves date back to a little over 125 years ago.
We plan to finish photographing and eventually supplement all the other photos for this cemetery on Find A Grave. Aside from grave photos the place is peaceful and has several new gardens. The south end of the cemetery has a great view of Gillette south of the I-90 overpass over South Douglas Highway.

For around every 10 people in the cemetery there is 1 living in Recluse, Wyoming which has a population of 7. The photo of the gate is straight, but the cemetery is on a hill. If you noticed the stones are wet that is because it was raining that day. The weather doesn't care if you drove out of the way to see a cemetery.

Crook County, Wyoming
Beulah Cemetery was easy to find because it can be seen from Interstate 90. It is named after the city as many others are.
When driving through the town we saw a dead snake on the road and found a shed snake skin a couple feet long in the cemetery. I hope it they were harmless snakes that eat bugs and not rattlesnakes. Ant hills have mounds sometimes a foot high on the graves. There are holes and uneven ground everywhere. Most rural cemeteries are like this.

Moorcroft Cemetery named after Moorcroft, Wyoming has hundreds of graves that date back over 100 years ago. I forgot to take a picture of the gate and area, maybe next time. The cemetery records are held at the town hall which is combined with the police department.

Pine Haven Area Cemetery
Pine Haven Area Cemetery is in the small rural town of Pine Haven, Wyoming. The cemetery is down a dirt trail off to the side of the road. It is well maintained and has a fancy gate for such a small cemetery. The oldest marker here is dated 1988.

Sheridan County, Wyoming
Arvada Cemetery is right outside of Arvada, Wyoming which appeared to have many historical buildings, but had seen better days. The cemetery is on a road marked private, but an oldtimer told us we had the right to drive on it to reach the cemetery.
