Hi. I will be happy to take the photo if you can get the exact location from the Church office. I have walked the St Thomas section looking for it but cannot find it. I think it must be a flat stone and they are hard to find. The office can give the row and number and that will help. Thank you.

Even a flat one would do it. It is very gratifying to learn that the time spent to learn the location of this gravesite was worth it.
When you do erect a gravestone, let me know, so that I can remove the current pictures of the site location. We can then take a picture of that gravestone and insert into the memorial.

If you look for Alton A. Anderson's upright gravestone,
Clifford Vetal is directly behind it, in an unmarked grave (except for the metal marker #158). We were fortunate that a cemetery worker had a map and location, and a spade to dig up the marker.
Hope this solves your problem. You will now be able to find this gravesite easily from the photos taken.

Also have taken photo of Mary Granger's stone which is a flat grey stone.
Also buried right beneath/next to, is another
Granger stone, which is a recent burial of a female. I did not transcribe her stone, but will get both pictures in a couple of weeks.
Both stones were missed by a fallen tree that had come down in the cemetery; they were dismantling the tree while we were there. There had been a couple of bad thunder and lightening
storms for the past couple of days. Some upright stones were off their pedestals.
Regards, Rita

We have located the gravesite. A nice cemetery worker dug down in a few spots and dug up #158.
There is no marker for Clifford, only the little round metal clip in the ground. He showed us
exactly what position the grave is in, and I outlined it with sticks on the ground. We took a few pictures of the site with another person's gravestone adjacent to it, so that it is findable now.

MaryEllen, two days ago I tried to find your
CLIFFORD VETAL in Section R of this cemetery.
I could not find any headstone. # 158 - could this be a little round circle of metal placed in the ground? If so, I did miss it. Your photo request is an old one. I am new on the block and thought I'd check on photos that were not done and follow up on their status. Did you still want a photo, if I can find the #158?
