RE: Dunham Riggs & wife
Lori, Can I send you these photos? I have taken them out of their frames and just can't bring myself to throw them away! If you want them, send me your address (privately) and I'll drop them in the mail.

Dunham Riggs & wife
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?

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....

Re: Sarah Bradford # 29804386
Hi Lori,
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.

Honoring Their Lives
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

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...

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.

Citizen's Cemetery, Tucson
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.

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?

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. . .

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.

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?

Thanks for the confirmation Lori. That is sad there is no marker, however, at least we know which cemetery. Your efforts are truly appreciated!

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 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

Added by DiAnn on Jul 30, 2011 7:14 PM

Miss Lori, I believe you put the wrong photo for John Henry, you put his parents Will and Mary's photo instead. You may have downloaded the wrong one. I'm in Alabama so I don't know if he is buried beside them or not. But I appreciate your efforts in that Arizona heat. Thanks. Curt

Added by Curt on Jul 30, 2011 5:24 PM

Dear Miss Lori, Thank you so much. I live in Alabama and am trying to get all of my Granny's family together and you've helped me tremendously! Thanks once again. May God bless you and yours. Curt

RE: RE:Info
Thank you for the compliments - genealogical research is my passion and Find A Grave is such a useful tool that I try to 'give back' by filling in the blanks and/or taking photos. I've not been asked to take volunteer photos for Tucson as yet - probably because I live about 35 miles out of town. I've heard the horror stories and recommend that Find A Grave put a note with the cemetery description that clearly states that the burial location (Block-Lot-Plot) MUST be included in the photo request and give the telephone number of the cemetery. I did go to Holy Cross for some research I was doing and they don't have the records for the old burials! So I walked the south sections for over two hours and finally found who I was looking for. When I'm on a research trip and plan to visit a particular cemetery, I check out Find A Grave and see if there are any photo requests but it's becoming more rare these days as more photo inventories are being done.
Well, thanks again for the compliments - let me know if you nedd help with your family research and I'll see what I can do.

RE: leaving obituary notice on graves:
You've been quite busy this afternoon - thanks for getting the updates/corrections going. I just took a look at the SAC's I'd sent you back in January and see where I DID transcribe several obits for posting. But in any case, there is information and/or confirmation source material for your records in the event someone asks you for it. I actually keep a binder with death certs, obits and other source materials pertaining to Evergreen Cemetery residents, just in case - :).
Thanks again.
