RE: Morningstar!
Glad to be of help!

Yes, the mausoleums are often very special places, very intimate, so I try to include a 'bigger picture' when I fulfill requests there.

For now I will de-link them as husband and wife, and await your update.

Thanks, Mark

RE: Morningstar Family
Glad to assist Margaret - and let me know what you resolve on Richard & Helen's status, and I'll edit as needed. I do see a 1930 US Census where Richard and Helen are listed as siblings (children of Percy & Edith), but the age for that Helen is off by 5 years so not certain whether he married someone with the same given name as a sibling.

All my best, Mark

Various Ludwig Tomer family memorials
Hi Margaret - now that you are retired, do you want me to transfer your Ludwig Tomer family memorials to you (or anyone else in the family)? I don't mind keeping them for as long as you want, but if you are doing more work, you may want them back. Just let me know. As I run into them, I can transfer them or you can send the request through the edit system (easiest way to do it for me). J.

Examine your picture for chair on far right. Does it have lion heads on both arm handles? It is similar to a picture with my ggm Kate Cunningham, chair handles have lions heads and claws on the bottom of chair feet. We are trying to locate that picture.

Recently you requested a transfer of unknown memorial from Mount Saint Marys, Kansas City, no answer back.
I am researching Cunningham, O'Donnell, McNellis, etc. from Kansas City to Chicago. Keep in touch, as we may crossover on Saint James Cem. there back to Pennsylvania.

Hi Margaret, I came across one of Joseph's and Judith's daughters, Marie. I created a memorial and transferred her memorial over to you since you manage her parents' memorials. I also sent you Joseph's obituary that I found in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

RE: Joseph Knepfler #115021170
I did not even think about it being an "O". So that makes sense. As to the number of requests, it definitely varies. When I started working on the cemetery, there were around 900 requests. I've added around 6,000 memorials and around 13,000 photos, but I have barely scratched the surface. I usually work as a lawn mower. I mow the rows, and requests get fulfilled as I finish a section.

Here is a another map of the cemetery that shows where I have worked and photographed. So far, I have been the only to upload to for this cemetery, except for maybe a couple of photos:

If your section is O4, then it looks like I was on the opposite end of the cemetery from where you want the photo.

Anyway, good luck finding someone to help!

Hi Margaret,

Yes, unfortunately I am not in Chicago for a while. I also do not have anyone who does this type of work in Chicago as a resource for you. While I understand your niece's reservations about going into the area, I can assure you the cemetery is quite safe. I have visited many times, and in fact live only a mile or so away as the crow flies in Hyde Park. Now, I wouldn't recommend your niece walk down the street, but the cemetery is entirely walled off and has security, which she could have accompany her to the site if she feels unsafe. Now, this may in no way convince her, but the cemetery is safe.

As to your location on the memorial, you list him as in Sec. 04. Looking at the map, and from what I remember of the cemetery grounds, each section has a letter and a number, as in A1 or F4. Here is a link to a map I use:

You might need to see if you can double-check his burial location so that someone who is doing the searching can find it easily enough. This is a massive cemetery.

Sorry I cannot help more, but if you have no luck, let me know in 2017!

I am pretty sure, but working on proof. Harriet is my husband's '1st cousin once removed' according to my genealogical program - love that it figures it out.

Hi Margaret,

I was unable to find markers for Myrtle and Sherman Netherton. I photographed all that I could find and will be adding them over the next couple of days.

I appreciate your work; and, generous spirit. *Thank-you" for the transfer.
I sincerely thank you for the transfer of the memorial for James B. Daubenbiss. Such a sad story.
I have updated the memorial with my (ongoing) research, to include newspaper articles that reported upon the sailing accident & the subsequent drownings. I found an additional article this afternoon.
I appreciate your dedication and Find-A-Grave work; and, your "generous spirit" in the transfer of this memorial. Peace & Blessings (CPM).

Thank you again

Thank you Margaret for the transfer. Do I dare ask for the transfer of Caroline Griswold 28008030 and William Griswold 28008018? They were John Griswold's parents. Thank you for considering to do so. I can add some info for them. If you don't wish to do so I will send info for you to add anyway.
