Yes, Boxwood's records are On-line somewhere; or at least they were when I compiled my spreadsheet to submit. I would think just Googling the cemetery name should lead you to them. That was one of the lists that had a wealth of information about many folks. I'll be glad to transfer them to you if you want.

You can hit the 'edit' tab on any memorial and request changes. Findagrave notifies the owner of the memorial to make the final decision.

I have linked Katie per your request

She was in the cemetery list. I have no further info, nor do I know whether or not there's a marker. You can enter a Photo Request--and you should be able to get a Death Certificate, too.

RE: Memorial 47491621
I did some research on this family just now, you descend from some fine military families. In particular the Phillippis. Mary Jones father, George, who was blind since the age of 42, remembers seeing George Washington at the age of 2 when Gen Washington visited Reading. Your George was named after the General/President. Gen Washington asked George's mother if her husband Abraham Phillippi was still living, he was, and Washington was escorted to see him. They served together at Valley Forge.
I have the full newspaper story if you care to see it and also George Phillippi's obituary. He is buried at Charles Evans and I have a photo of he and Mary's tombstone in his memorial.
Need an email to send.
Best regards,
Neil Scheidt

Go to my memorial and click on "duplicate memorial" in the spousal link. That memorial was created after my own but has more details.

If he has a stone, it's not with the others. Next to Anna is Hampton A. and Mary E.

RE: Wm. Scott Jr. mem 70628047
I suspect you don't know about a problem that Green-Wood iss having with the VA with regaard to military markers. In 2012, the VA started enforcing a regulation that limited those who could apply for a marker, on behalf of a long dead veteran lying in an unmarked grave, to a direct descendant. This probably has something to do with the persistent absence of a marker on the grave of william Scott.

Hi Irence
If you are going to George Washington Memorial Cemetery for photos please claim them on findagrave. I went today for Ida Coolong.
Thanks Lucille Bertram

Added by Lucille Bertram on Aug 21, 2014 10:00 AM

yes, indeed I have at least one picture of Lester and Ida. I will have to scan it and add it to their Memorials. Do you have any pictures?

I wondered about Idas' maiden name and will have to verify that information.

RE: photo for Lester Coolong
IF you delete your duplicate Memorial for Lester J. Coolong and his 1st wife Ida I can transfer my Memorials to you and have added more information from the Cemetery they provided to me. Let me know when you delete them and I will transfer them to you :) so that it keeps the family fully intact together.

2 siblings who crossed over and married each other and why the confusion of Paul Edward Coolongs wife of his 1st family. I have that Record of Marriage to Vivian Marion Johnson in 1934.

RE: memorial 110644213
Hello Irene. Part of the research we did was to put head stones on most of the unmarked graves. I personally do not know right now if he has one or is getting one. If the family put a stone of a none military type we did not double mark those graves. Some of those also have Grand Army of the Republic marks on them to show Civil War service. Try this address it to Jeff Richman. He is the head historian of Greenwood. If anybody can help you he sure can. He runs the tours through Greenwood. If you find out if he has a stone. I would be happy to photograph it and send you a copy. Let me know if this helps you.....Elsie....

RE: memorial 110644213
Hello Irene. I deleted my bio. I am one of the historians at greenwood and I add all civil war records. When a family member asks to change or remove it I do. Yours is better with picture and all. FYI: I used his military and burial records for the information used in my bio. What I wrote was the record we had at Greenwood. We are not related other then find-a-grave friend. Thank you for pointing this out and if I can be for any help to you please ask....Elsie.....

I am sorry about that first message. I did not find the actual grave but the picture I put on the memorial page is the general area.
Sorry for the confusion, but this cemetery is the worst and I have looked into each and every photo request and I am done with it. I don't think I am ever going back.

RE: 79620174
I created the entries for most of the cemetery from a survey done of headstones in the early 2000s. You should put in a photo request. I know there is a lady that goes there regularly who should be able to help you.
