RE: Emil Wick, father & son
Thank you very much for taking and posting the photo of the gravestone for father and son, Emil Wick.
Its strange that after more than a year, the son's date of death has still not been put on the stone.

Thanks for your hard work Jim. They are great. I made a note about Theodora Kolasinski. I made a memorial for her with her husband Ted but ran out of requests at the time. I'll request a picture when I can and you can fill it just by copying it from Ted's memorial. Thanks again, Frank

Daisy Hurley
Thank you ever so much for the fantastic photographs that you took of Daisy Hurley's gravesite. It is greatly appreciated by myself, along with other family members - as we are in California. I appreciate that you took the time to get such a beautiful photograph of the marker!

I am so very very apreciative - and I see that you claimed my other Hurley requests... CANT WAIT! :-)

Some of them have pictures, but they were just really bad, and hard to see. If possible could yo take and add a photo of the are in which the hurleys are all (like an area shott showing daisy and the hurley obelisk?) That would be super.... but just if possible!

Leona Wallner
When I looked at the Wallner headstone picture you just put on the memorial I saw the information for his wife Leona. I made a memorial for her and requested the picture. Why don't you add the picture you just took and add it to her memorial. Take credit for your volunteer efforts. Thanks again, Frank

Hi James,
We respectfully request permission to use the entrance sign photo in our online tree. The husband to Marie's cousin is interred there and the photo will make a great addition.

Thanks for your consideration.

Hi! Thanks so much for claiming the requests, there were a couple of requests that another voulenteer got, and I spoke with him, and as he had been to the cemetery, but not claimed them, I re-did it so he could upload images. If you are interested however, there are some he couldnt find that I know are burried there (may have no markers)......

Thanks so very very much
and sorry for the trouble!

Hoppe photos
Thank you for your efforts in getting the Hoppe photos. Yes Ferdinand's is fairly readable, but unfortunately Fredericka's is not. There's probably nothing to be done about that. Thank you for being a photo volunteer.

I see you've added photos to Stafeil family memorials in Oak Hill Cemetery, Watertown, WI. May I transfer those to you - and/or any others? Just let me know, as I've inherited many memorials from a now inactive contributor.

See these for starters:

Hi James. I just noticed this ancient message from you in my Find A Grave account. I sure hope that I responded. If not, I'm chagrined. Please let me know if there is anything else you would like me to do.

Jacob and Mathilda Schulte
Thanks so much for getting the photos for the Schulte family. I didn't know Victor was also buried there. I would appreciate it if you could upload the monument picture to Victor's memorial page. Some one else posted his memorial, so I put in a photo request.

You were kind enough to get a photograph of the marker for Jennie and Leo - they are on the same headstone. Would you also be able to post this photo to Leo's memorial page since it is only on his wife's Find a Grave memorial?

Jennie #125927145
Leo #125926707

Thank you very much!

Kamrath grave photos

Thank you so very much for the five Kamrath grave marker photos you took for me at Pilgrims Rest Cemetery. The markers gave me some exact dates of births for the family tree that I didn't know before.

Louise and Ole Severson
Thank you so much for the tombstone photo for Louise and Ole Severson. This has concluded a 10 year hunt for her. I knew who she married and where she was in 1945 (Milwaukee), but after that I had no clues. I finally made a connection with a family member that knew where she was buried. From there I was able to get her date of death and her obituary. Now I have her tombstone photo. THANK YOU so much.
