I've rescued a couple of pics of Dunham Riggs and his wife and am trying to find a family member that would like to have them. Can you help?

Hi Lori-- I just received a scam message under your Yahoo email account name. Looks like someone has hijacked your Yahoo address book. The person sending the message who claims to be you says she is stranded overseas and needs money. All your contacts will probably get this message. Thought you'd want to know.

|Robert Blackburn||Floyd & Leona Benton (Evergreen Memorial Park)|
Hi Lori, thanks for creating memorials for my grand uncle Floyd Benton and his wife Leona. They were from Michigan also and moved West while I was still young. They had no children so sadly they missed the joy you and I find in our grandchildren. I added a couple of photos of Floyd and will search for one of Leona. Kind regards....

|J O Pierce||Re: Sarah Bradford # 29804386|
I see you have created a memorial for my great grandmother Sarah Bradford #29804386 and great aunt Narcissa Hartman # 29804397. Would it be possible to have you transfer me the sites as I have more information to add to their sites and links to family.
I really appreciate your creating and taking the photo of their gravestone. Thanks so much for your endeavors and time.

No, I didn't know your aunt. If you would like me to transfer her memorial to you I would be happy to do that...let me know. Leslie

Hi Lori, I see that you photographed the headstone for Myrtle Jones Stevens in Ingham,Michigan. Do you mind linking her with her parents here at Find.a.Grave: Minerva Druck Jones #66661328 and Jonathan J. Jones #81056258? I have been working on this family tree as my Great-Grandmother, Elizabeth Isabel Crawford married Myrtle's brother, Dallis. Are you also a descendant of this family? Thanks, Helen of Tennessee
Added by Helen on Aug 04, 2013 10:41 PM
I found my aunt and her husband in your cemetery listings. Are they part of your family? If so, guess we are related. If not, would you be willing to transfer them to me?
The records are: South Lawn Cemetery, Tucson
Lena Hill #32814942
Louis D. Hill, Sr #32814905
My name is Pat Hembling and member # 48107992.
I'm new at this and not sure how it all works...

|Linda ||RE: Citizens Cemetery|
Nobody seems to know where it once was or when it was used, all agree it is definitely defunct!
I called Evergreen because the receptionist is extremely knowledgeable as well as very interested in history and where the bodies are buried! She had never heard of it. Alas!
Thanks for responding; I appreciate it.

Do you know where Citizen's Cemetery is in Tucson? Somebody has requested a photo from this cemetery and for the life of me I can't find it.
I do know it is defunct, but it doesn't show up on any AZ cemetery project list, AZ historic cemeteries, etc. I can find Citizen Cemetery in Prescott, Flagstaff, Maricopa County, etc., but not Tucson.
Now my curiosity is really up! Let me know. Hope you are keeping cool and the rain has found your neighborhood.

|Linda ||RE: All Faiths Memorial Park|
At the risk of beating a dead horse to death, I took another look at the All Faiths Memorial page and one of the pictures shows a sign with All Faiths Memorial Park and underneath it Desert Vista Cemetery, Shaarei Shalom Cemetery and Our Lady of Something Cemetery and arrows pointing the direction to each cemetery. "Cemetery" is used w/each name.
I don't know what to do now. I'm still leaning towards posting under All Faiths since that is what is used in the obituaries and if a relative has an obit, that is what they will search on. That said, a relative will probably conduct a search based on the relatives name and not the cemetery.
Alas! What is a contributor suppose to do!? What are your thoughts?
Added by Linda on Mar 13, 2012 4:41 PM
|Linda ||RE: All Faiths Memorial Park|
I agree w/you that cemeteries have various sections and those sections should not be treated as individual cemeteries. What, if anything, should be done w/the memorial pages that have been created in Desert Vista and Shaarei Shalom instead of All Faiths?
I think you have a fabulous idea re: contacting some of the top contributors and see what they have to say.
I'll keep you posted. Stay tuned. . .

|Linda ||All Faiths Memorial Park|
Here is my dilemma. I noticed that you created / posted memorials at All Faiths Memorial Park which, as you know, is comprised of several sections -- Catholic, Jewish, Veterans, Non-Catholic, etc with each section having a different name, e.g., Shaarei Shalom, Garden of St. Joseph, Desert Vista, Garden of Angels, etc. Some volunteers are creating separate cemetery pages for each section of All Faiths.
I don't think each section of All Faiths is a different cemetery and do think that all memorials should be located within All Faiths as obituaries list burial as being in All Faiths and not Desert Vista (or Shaarei Shalom, etc.). I want to create memorial pages and post in the right cemetery. Should I continue to create/post in All Faiths which might create duplicates for postings in Shaarei Shalom, Desert Vista?
What do you think?

You have a dupllicate for Earl so you might want to delete one.

Quick note to let you know, I just posted a pic of Anton's marker. You created such a nice memorial page, I thought I'd let you know.

Those dreaded bugs at Findagrave jumped up and bit you... It added two photos for:
Cyrus R. Stevens 5200600.
Can You please delete on of them.
I just hate it when that happens.

Hi Lori, I tried your way of taking photo's and guess what? I got clearer details, my list for do overs is much shorter, and posting is quicker and thats all good. Thanks for the tip. Almost Oct., going to cool down and thats good too. Marty B.

|Linda ||East Lawn Cemetery|
WOW! Thanks for the heads up. In fact, I just got home from 4.5 hours of walking the cemetery looking for the Find a Grave photo requests.
I was there earlier this week and decided to give in and ask at the office for the locaton. People were extremely pleasant. Today, one of the landscapers came to me and said he noticed I had been there quite awhile & could he help me find a marker. I told him I didn't have a location & he encouraged me to ask at the office which I finally did. The lady that did the look ups for me earlier also did the look ups today and I could tell she was less than pleased. I did have a cover story ready just in case which I didn't need -- this time. I think knowing what I know and with our warning, I'll lay off for several months unless I can talk my husband into going & asking!
Even tho I keep my camera in my pocket, I appreciate your warning because that would have caught me completely off guard. Why are they so strict or mean?
Added by Linda on Sep 22, 2011 4:39 PM
Thanks for the confirmation Lori. That is sad there is no marker, however, at least we know which cemetery. Your efforts are truly appreciated!

|Candie Rogers||Jennie & Logan Forth|
Thank you so much for getting those pictures of the headstones of Aunt Jennie and Uncle Logan Forth. I was able to add the day of death to Uncle Logan's memorial and had to correct the day of birth for Aunt Jennie's memorial. I'm going to check further on Aunt Jennie's day of birth because my grandfather's (her father) memorandum book had that she was born on the 6th. Thanks again for taking the time to do find the graves and take a picture. Candie Rogers.

I got a note from findagrave.com you were unable to find a marker for Harry at the South Lawn, thank you for trying to fulfill the photo request.
His obituary states burial "Tucson Memorial Park, South Lawn". There are no other possible cemeteries with this name, am I correct?
Thanks for your help! DiAnn
