Andy Wright of Tallahassee (who took the two photos on the right side of this page) said:
 
"I took these photos of Alto when I was taking a long trip from my home in Tallahassee to my hometown of Orlando, and I wrote down many Findagrave photo requests in the counties in between.  I'm afraid these are probably the only photos I've ever taken in your tri-county area... I can tell you that the map for the Alto cemetery is very accurate.  I didn't know what to expect, but I drove about 4 miles back on the wildlife preserve and came to a FWC station, I think, where hunters have to check in.  I told him I was looking for the graves, and the person at the station gave me a little map.  If it had been one day later, it would have been a hunting season, and I wouldn't be able to go!  It was probably about 7 miles further on dirt trails, and I even lost a hubcap, but it was worth it!  It's so shady back there and it was close to dusk, that without cleaning tools that was the best I could get."
