Sent you an emai
Hi, I sent you an email about your wonderful Burkhart and Rathsack contributions. In case you changed your email address, I wanted to exchange info.

My great grandparents were Carl and Louise Burkhart. My grandfather was Charles Burkhart, their son, and my dad is C.L. Burkhart, Jr, who is 90 and still alive.

I hadn't seen photos of Fred or Irwin for years! Thank you so much for these great memories.

Your wonderful memorials
I just saw some of your wonderful memorials for Forest Home cemetery.
The Biographies you have taken the time to write are very appreciated by fmily I'll bet. Even if they never see them, many of us here on Find A Grave appreciate reading them and honoring those souls. NICE WORK !

I am on a FindaGrave Facebook page and a volunter wrote that Forest Home had over 400 requests so she despaired in ever seeing a relatives grave.
I sent her a link to your profile...

RE: Tombstone Photo Jerusha Reed
You are very welcome! Of course, you know I am going only on the fact that the stone beside the broken stone says Jeremiah Reed on it. I am only taking for granted the broken stone is Jerusha's. I looked around to see if the top part of the stone was laying anywhere but could not find it. There also were other Reeds in the same row.

RE: Please remove your photographs (Another one)
This is indeed strange. There must have been something wrong with all Forest Home Cemetery Memorials yesterday morning for when I looked, everyone of my memorials had no tombstone photographs, people photographs or cemetery photographs. I had looked at them in late July or early August and they were fine, the only new thing was your name and photo listing suddenly showing up where the photographs were. It was about 1 hour after I sent my message, that I realized it had to be a cemetery photograph rather than something that you added recently and went back to look at the Forest Home Cemetery home page and all cemetery photographs were missing/hidden. I looked at other memorials that either I had added for other cemeteries or were tracking in virtual cemeteries, and they were all fine, only Forest Home Cemetery appeared to be affected. Today, all of the pictures have suddenly returned and all of my memorials there are fine. My apologies for thinking that you had done something to hide/delete the pictures! Please delete my previous messages to you.

I established a new FindAGrave Memorial today, 8/30/2012 at Forest Home Cemetery, and immediately after completing it, was surprised to see that cemetery photographs were surpressed with your photograph blocking any other photograph! Do you have something that automatically adds this photograph to every FindAGrave Memorial at Forest Home? Please remove your photograph immediately.

Lookin for someone to take photo
Hi Denise,

I am looking for someone who can take a photo of Edmund and Charlotte Lengefeld's grave site. I contacted the Cemetery and got the Site Numbers and verified that there was a headstone there. Would you know of anyone in the area that could do this?

Here is the information on them:

Forest Home Cemetery
Forest Park
Cook County
Illinois, USA

Edmund Lengefeld
Section: BL, Grave Site: 580

Charlotte Warstad Lengefeld
Plot: Section: BL, Grave Site: 581

KINDest regards
Nancy Hickman (way down south in Texas)

RE: Charles Miller 1847-1922
Hi Denise, I also found Carrie Miller, Charles' second wife and photographer her marker too. She doesn't have a memorial page, would you like me to email the photo to you?

Colbert/Iliff/Reed line
Hello Denise,

I noticed you were contributing many things regarding the Colbert line & wondered if perhaps you are related to them? I'm related to the family line via Salome Reed. So I've been working on the whole family & tracing it from Salome Reed and her husband Thomas Iliff down through the family. Would love to connect, if you are interested.

Whited Croco connection
Hello Denise,

I hadn't found proof that it was her parents. I am assuming you do. I haven't had a chance to go and look for the cemetery or make it back to the Historical Society to do research. I have sent you an email. Thank you for your input.

Millers @ Ashland Cemetery/NE
I saw the photos you had posted of John N & Mary M. Miller (41947378)- i've photographed/posted their headstones - in case you've never been to the cemetery in Ashland.

Enjoy! Great Photos of them.

I noticed that you posted a photo of Thomas Iliff in Mount Olivet Cemetery, in Salt Lake City. Are you a relative of his? If you are, I would be happy to transfer ownership of the memorial to you.

Thank YOU
Denise, thank you so much for making my day and informing me that you had old pictures of my great grandparents and two of their siblings. I have been praying for someone out there who would have a picture of him. We have some "old" family pictures with no names. Hopefully, now we can help narrow down the list.
Thanks again, I'm looking forward to receiving anything you have.
Love this F.A.G.

Eleven Woodford
Hi Denise,
I just became acquainted with "Find a Grave" and was so happy to run across a picture of Eleven Woodford and his obit. Eleven was my grandfather's half brother. There was a huge age difference as my grandfather Grover C. Woodford was born in 1890. They had same father, Aranda Moses, but different mothers. My grandfather's mother was Elizabeth McWilliams, Odel, Ogle, Woodford, Haines.
I would love to have a copy of your picture and obit of Eleven if at all possible.
Thank you so much,
