I added Sammie's memorial after meeting her grandson's, Aaron Sutterby, mom, Dee Miller. Dee told me about Sammie and how she had given up her spot in the family plot for Aaron, who was tragically murdered at a young age. I met Dee there at the cemetery as she was cleaning and caring for Aaron's gravesite.
I can only guess now that Dee told me Sammie was there, otherwise I wouldn't have created a memorial for her.
I'm sure if you Google her name you can find out the funeral home and verify.

I must of been having a senior moment when I listed the wrong parents for him. I did some research for you and found his parents. I added them to his memorial. My materal grandmother is from Grapeland so found it interesting to do some linking of the Brewton family for you. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Janet

You are very welcome. Glad i could be of assistance. I also added photos to the memorial pages for Patricia Dorian, Arthur C. Delsman and Virginia Freeman. The whole family is buried in lot 0105 in the Sleepy Hollows section of Washelli Cemetery. Glad I was able to confirm burial locations for Rufus and Eva Freeman for you. Have a great weekend!

Just wanted to let you know that I located all the headstones that you requested photos for at Evergreen-Washelli in Seattle. All are buried together in the Sleepy Hollows section on the Washelli grounds including Rufus and Eva Freeman. Unfortunately the lawn sprinklers were on in that particular section of the cemetery, so I was unable to take the photos when I was there today. I have a day trip planned for tomorrow out of the area, so I will be going back on Friday to get your photos. Hopefully they should all be uploaded by early evening at the latest.

My name is Alan Rencher. I am a descendant of Abraham Rencher. I noticed that you added a photograph of him. Do you remember where you got it? I have a painting of him and it is definitely the same guy. I would be very interested in finding the source of the photo you uploaded. thanks for your help!

|ann||Johanna & Johan Heyssel - wrong cemetery|
Johanna Christina Schirmer Heysel, record 96435164 and her husband Johann Gottfried Heysel, record 96435141, are actually buried in St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in California, MO (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2151156&CScn=St.+Paul's+Lutheran+Cemetery&CScntry=4&CSst=26&CScnty=1464&)
Johanna and Johan were my 3G grandparents. I'd appreciate if you would attribute them to the right cemetery, and if you're not connected to them personally, I'd love to take over the maintenance. (I've taken photos of their tombstone - now to find them!)
(Their name was actually spelled with one s. Their son, my great grandfather added an additional s.)
Thanks! Ann Blystone
Johanna's obit was printed in the California Democrat on Aug. 4, 1892.

|Barbara Munson||Eaves photo request|
I see you have photo requests at Garden of Memories in Metairie. The cemetery's fairly large and there are currently 63 requests for photos. If you can call the cemetery and find out which sections your people are in, I'll be happy to try to locate the graves and take photos for you. The phone number of the cemetery office is 504- 833-3786.

Took some effort to get the photos legible. This time I went with the right tools. Scrubbed down some headstones. There they were :)

|Diona Dickerson||RE: Thomas McCall|
You are welcome. This is a hobby I truly enjoy. I will continue to look for the marker, after the first time the grass is cut may be a good time to go back and check. In that particular section of the cemetery, the markers are very spread out which leads me to believe there are many missing. The census online was done in 2001, I may be missing it so I won't give up until I'm certain.

|Shirley Utley Cressler||McLeroy|
I will add a memo to my memorial to look at your memorial too. Many of the people who grew up around Jim will not know to look under the name of Lanny. Get this, Jim's father was the minister at the Southern Baptist Church in the town where I grew up. His father married my husband and I. I don't remember how many years the family lived in our town but do know that when they left they moved over the state line, just 35 miles away, into a town in Utah.
You mentioned birth certificates and marriage certificates - are you a subscriber on one of the sites or have you found one that I don't know about. I'd be interested in knowing.

|Shirley Utley Cressler||McLeroy Memorial|
Thank you for your note regarding memorial 52581009 and 79802359. My memorial has the obit and does not mention the name of Lanny. Also, the obit I have does not mention what cemetery he was buried in - I'm puzzled so will leave my memorial as is for now.
Thanks for your work,

|Doc Ster||RE: Joseph and Susan Shores|
You are quite welcome. To the left of C.R. Shore's gravestone (as you are facing the grave), there are two small, brown markers (similar in nature to Susie Shore's marker) for a Charles Shore and Willie Shore (no dates or other information). If you think that you know who they are and would like to create a memorial page for them, I have photos of their markers that I can upload as well.

I saw your post in the forums and read the bio, which I really liked, so I just clicked "sponsor". I truly hope you don't mind. If you like, we can ask A.J. or Counted to return to me grave bucks if you want to sponsor it, that's fine with me. I just felt your loss and wanted to help in some way.
