There are quit a few duplicates in this cemetery. Maybe you and Howard McGlothlin. can get together and combine all the information. It looks like on some of them you have more information and then some he has more information.

Florence Upper Lakeview cemetery

I am writing to ask about Florence Upper #5231749 in Lakeview cemetery in Seattle. I have photos to add to her page but I will need at least two of the present cemetery photos removed. I am not sure if these photos show Florence's position as I have found it. But I would be grateful to add my recent photos.

Thank you for all the wonderful pictures you have added to the Findagrave site. I remember noticing many of your pictures when I first started!

RE: Amanda Wamsley
Thanks loads, One should do it! Had to take a few minutes to reboot - gen. program was stuck for some reason but that fixed it. Guess I never stuck Hayden Wamsley in there and don't know where Howard is buried but died this county too - they were Albert and Amanda's sons. Sandra

RE: Amanda Wamsley
Think they are yours except maybe the Washelli Cem. sign photo - that's the one that could go but maybe can't do it. There are two showing the layout of the stones with a building in the background. Maybe one of those could go? Thanks so much! Sandra

Hi Nils, have a new contact and we were able to connect Amanda Wamsley buried Evergreen Washelli with her husband Albert. I'd like to add a snapshot of her with my husband's parents, but the photos are full up! I don't know how to delete one of them, can you, or can you tell me how?
Hope you're doing well - we haven't talked in ages! Sandra in CO

RE: John Senn
found him on the "random grave walk" and found it very curious that a Ukrainian immigrant's grave marker has a German inscription.

You have posted a picture of this cemetery and I have a number of graves to find. Do you have any idea where in/around New England it is?
Thanks, CS

I asked a favor from you once before. I was wondering if you could do me another favor on find a grave. I am not good at writing a biagraphy, so could you write one of your great biographies for a baseball star. Do whatever you can to get him in Find a Grave Famous. Keep up the wonderful work. Grave Tag'r.

I already turned over ownership of his memorial.
