Thanks for surveying and creating the memorials for Mt Pleasant Cemetery in Union Cty, OR.
The memorials YOU created have been a treasure chest in my search for family.
Please keep up the good work.

RE: Peter Wesley Shunk
The scenario you present is highly likely. It happened to another memorial page of mine where the father died in 2011, but had a daughter who died in 1966. Cemetery records indicated she was buried with her father, but there was a memorial page for her in another state, which was the place of her death. So, there were two memorial pages for her and the contributor who contacted me was not as nice as you and told me the cemetery records had to be wrong and I was spreading misinformation. A photo request provided the evidence that there was a stone for her next to that of her father.

Thanks for your message regarding his burial in Missouri in 1929. As you may already know it is not unusual to remove remains and reinter them at a different location at a later date. Per the National Cemetery Administration this individual is buried in the Post Cemetery at the United States Military Academy.

I found your memorial and am curious if you are related? I'm searching for my 3rd Great Grandfather, Shubal Starkweather who was born in 1779 in New London, CT according to his US Army enlistment info. I'm not finding much online and am curious if I can find a descendant. Thank you for your assistance!

Alice, are you able to call the cem. there (I see all the work you do!) Could would or can you call them for yourself to make sure she is not there? Also thinking only other way is to find the funeral home and contact for burial.....

Da....gee Alice, was in the back of my mind, kept thinking I knew who make the memorial... but did not recognize the owl nic. I kept thinking if you knew me would be a response :) so when you just said a friend told you and nothing more, I didn't think it was you.

Sorry, please ignore and delete my messages below, was good to hear from you, you are the only one that helped me, so double sorry, pls forgive my impatience.

Find A Grave Memorial# 106781837

This is my grandmother's sister and when I found her memorial (a long time ago) I requested a photo of her headstone. I live in Kansas City Mo. and will never be able to travel to see it.

I received this response in regard to the request.
The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person

They also reported, specifically:
The Grand Army of the Republic cemetery office, in Snohomish, WA, informed me
that there is no record available.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As
a result, we are removing it.

I read your profile Owlisnapp... how did you post a memorial for her here? And where is she, why is there no cem.record for her? How did you make a memorial for her? I have a copy of the Death Index and only says who her parents are etc. does not say where she is buried.

RE: lillian v. taylor
OK, thanks, I am just clutching at straws. He must have been locally famous to have had the airport named for him, even though it has not lasted, so I should try the papers and local government.

I am trying to locate Moulton B. Taylor, the aero engineer who invented the Aerocar. he has no memorial so I trying to find him through his wife, Lillian Vermeil Taylor. In 1955 they lived in Longview, Cowlitz County WA, where the Kelso-Longview Airport is named Molt Taylor field. Have you any helpful info regarding this Lillisn V Taylor?

Ron Woodward
Merritt Woodward's Information
I really appreciate all the work you are doing on Sunset Heights Cemetery, especially since my grandfather, my father and my mother are buried there. I would like to offer the following corrections to Merritt Ord Woodward's record:

His first wife was Elva Viola Mead. You have her listed as Alva Mead. She and Merritt had two children: Floyd Orval Woodward and Mildred Opal Woodward before she died on 28 May 1916, in Elm Creek, Nebraska. She is buried in Overton Cemetery, Nebraska.

His second wife was Vivian Lenore Carpenter. She and Merritt had 10 more children: Retha June Woodward, Verna Elizabeth Woodward, Lyle Orlando Woodward, Gerald Arthur Woodward, Vivian Lois Woodward, Ronald Edgar Woodward, Charles Ord Woodward, Edward Merritt Woodward, Richard Wayne Woodward, Kay Louise Woodward

Wilma Lois Woodward is my mother and is not one of Merritt's children. She was Wilma Lois Frederick and she is also buried there. You have done and excellent job on her gravesite. I wrote her obituary and really appreciate seeing it attached to her record.

You are welcome.
As you might know, certain sections of this cemetery are being renovated (even in this cold, foggy weather that we are experiencing.) When those sections are completed, and the weather warms up, I will be taking additional photos.

RE: Ruth (Whetstone) Hicks
I wish they were better. The four concrete slabs are a little below ground level and were completely covered with leaves. Not surprising that they are worn and broken like they are. I wonder if these were moved from the original burial place...

You created a duplicate record

78954442 autogravr record
117398181 yours

I'm letting your stand since it is by far the more complete.

In Spring Grove cemetery we have many duplicates created from the autogravr program. Any death or last interment on or prior to October 2011 has a very good chance of already being out there. If the dates are confusing use for the burial records which will help.

If you could, on your record , disable the URL so it reads interment I'd .

Thanks so much and blessings.
