Elma Craig on memorial 82761906
I have a question about Elma Jones Craig. Are you a family member with personal knowledge of this name?

RE: Binnie
I'll talk to them about it this week. If they tell me that there are supposed to be markers other than the large upright, I will see what I can do about having them uncovered. I'll be getting back to you.

Robin left me a message and she is working on looking for her transcription of the cemetery in Iowa. The stone she may have seen had to have been a cenotaph, because Inglewood confirmed that Binnie is buried here in the same plot (Sequoia 405) as her husband.

Did you ever hear back from Inglewood as to the existence of flat markers that might be buried? I was going to ask but I forgot. So I wondered if you called them.

RE: Sewards @ Inglewood
Well, I only had to brush the dust off of Binnie's marker, nothing else was necessary. I think it only says "Seward" on the other side of the upright monument. I only photographed the front because as it is, I took two views of it, and thought it would just take up photo space if I put the view of the back. If you want one, I can put it on my list for next visit.

As far as there being markers that are covered up, I checked with a 6-inch trowel all around the upright and could not feel anything. If they have buried markers, they are more than 6 inches deep. If you want to call them to confirm the existence of markers, I won't be offended at all if you get back to me about it. If there are buried markers, I will need to place a work order to have them uncovered, and it would take a week or so to go back and get new photos.

So if you call them, please let me know what they say. Let them know that you have a photo of the upright, but are wondering about the individual markers. They will have to pull the cardex because the computerized record may only say "yes" to a marker, but that may be in reference to the upright, so please be specific and ask about flat, individual markers. Since Frederick was a Civil War soldier, he should have a military marker! I'm finding out that not all soldiers end up with one.

I will look forward to receiving more information from you.

Best regards,

PS - If we never hear back from Robin Cleland, I will just keep the memorial for Binnie as is.

Sewards @ Inglewood
Hello. I am about to fulfill your photo requests and just wanted you to know that there is only an upright monument for Frederick and Emma Seward, no individual headstones, so I am putting only a photo of the monument on their memorials.

Also, Binnie does have a marker and I believe she is buried here. The CA Death index shows that she died in Los Angeles County.

If there is a marker for her in New York, I believe that memorial should be designated as a cenotaph. However, her New York memorial does not have a photo of a headstone. I have put in a request to the manager of that memorial to send some kind of proof. If it turns out she is buried in New York, then the memorial I created can be designated as a cenotaph. There will be no need to delete it, unless there is no existing marker at the New York cemetery. If the person who created that memorial just assumed she was buried there, but had no proof, then that original memorial can be changed to reflect the location in Inglewood. We'll have to wait and hear back from that person.

Best regards,

I found two of the three Skau headstones that you requested. The third does not have a headstone so I took a photograph of the area. There is space around the Skau family where George may be without headstone. I found two other Skau headstones nearby and will transfer management of those two to you shortly.

RE: Walne
Thanks Bill

I know Bernard. He had my father in high school. I knew his father when I was security at El Cerrito Plaza security and he was on Albany PD. He is probably coming up to visit family and friends. He is a funeral director somewhere down in southern CA.

Best wishes.

I do not know of any better information then from the cemetery itself who provided this to me. When at Sunset View next week I will confirm.

RE: Bessie Bellewood
Glad to be of assistance!

I'll try to get across to Wiltshire sometime, to take a picture of Francis Kent's grave, which is not attenuated in the way you so dislike. However, this may not be possible for some time.

RE: Gallatin Co cemeteries
Thanks for the info. I was so happy to find the Hoggins-Knox- Cemetery. I didn't know it was referred to as the Drury Chapel Cemetery, but that makes sense. I'd like to get some kind of sign put up there to identify it.

Gallatin Co cemeteries
Hey Bill ! Just got back from visiting cemeteries in the Ghent area. I finally found the Hoggins-Knox cemetery! My question is, do you know who is in charge of it? Who maintains it and the Montgomery Cemetery?

I would love to have signs put up for those two cemeteries that properly identify them. I'd be willing to pay for them. Even to contribute to the maintenance of them.

Find-A-Grave has the Hoggins-Knox cemetery listed as Drury Chapel Cemetery. The KHS shows it as Hoggins-Knox.

Hope you are well. Thanks for all the wonderful help you've given me.

Thomas Furnish
Thank you for all the time you spent trying to locate the graves of my great-grandmother and her second husband Thomas Furnish. I'm not sure why his name was written as Thomas Church Furnish. I am not aware of either of them being buried in a church cemetery then moved to this cemetery. I think the graves you found in the cemetery database are probably theirs. My Dad had been told they were buried there but he could never find their graves.

RE: Farquhar
You sre very welcome. You are right it does change. Down at the lower left corner shows the date of the imaging. I believe there is a way to bring up past imaging. Yesterday, there were no leaves on the trees, so depending when the next fly by is, you may see the rock again.

RE: Farquhar
I gave upon using Google Earth to get the lat/lon. When I zoomed in as close as I could the screen was a dark blur. I did the easy way and stood over Stanley's marker and took the reading from my phone.

It was: 37.90581 N -122.28743 W

You did very good with Ernest's. My reading for his grave were: 37.90480 -122.28902.

RE: Walne - Farquhar
Photos are now posted. The cemetery confirms that Florence is with her father, but not on the marker. 33 is a lot # and not a row.

Samuel is with his third wife, Hazel. Nothing gets the blood running like climbing a wet hillside with camera and tools. The picture just doesn't do justice to the steepness.

Florence and Samuel were married in Berkeley on December 10, 1944. Alameda County's record is Book 271-Page 69 in case you wanted to order copy of certificate for $16.00.

RE: Walne - Farquhar
No problem. I'll verify everthing on Saturday.

In case you didn't know, Florence was Samuel's second wife. His first wife was Helen M. Leete. They were married in SF on July 2, 1922. Florence and Samuel married in December, 1944. I'll do some more checking to get the exact date.

RE: Walne
I'll check around and ask Ivy at the office what they do with things like that. If the grounds keepers thought that it was just "junk", they probably threw it away. I'm going to have to re-check the location of his grave. Palm 3 section isn't big enough for 33 rows. It will be on Saturday as I work and can't get there before the cemetery closes. If you use google earth, you can see Palm section three. It is right behind the office, on top of a small hill with a road around it.

RE: Wallers
Interesting and sad article about the grandson. You might want to ask Chris Mills about different ways to query the Forest Lawn Glendale database. He really is a genius.

RE: Wallers
I called the cemetery office to inquire about Mona Taylor. The Col of Nativity is very close to Col of Inspiration. There are three people in Mona's niche: Her husband Edward L and Eliot Edward Newlin (# 85477637)
Mona's arrangement were made by her daughter. Unfortunately there is no record of who made Eliot's arrangements.
I asked if there was a Florence Newlin in their luck.

RE: Elliot Craig
I called the cemetery office and asked who made the arrangements for James Waller in 1943 but it was not noted. The office did look at the two other Florence Craigs buried in Glendale but neither fit. One had the middle name Louise and died before the Judge and the other had a maiden name of Carpenter. It could be Florence remarried and moved out of state.
The Judge is interred in the Columbarium of Inspiration in the Great Mausoleum. Basically there is no view - it is wall to wall, ceiling to floor niches. There are a couple of "area" photos for the Columbarium of the Dawn which is in the same area as Columbarium of Inspiration. Look at Ruth Kelly memorial# 55479723. The interior is cathedral-like - all marble with long arched windows. I hope this is helpful.
Do you want me to transfer Hallie Epperson Waller to you?
