Brian thanks for checking for my Holcomb family. Not surprised the stones appear to have all disappeared but I appreciate knowing that, too...

Thank you so much for posting the photo of Naomi's headstone. I noticed you also posted her headstone to Alfred's memorial. I am assuming you just uploaded the wrong photo... thanks for double-checking!
I appreciate your time and effort!

John T Hyde
Hello Brian,

Thanks so much for your effort, and for letting me know that John Hyde's stone is in poor shape.

I've just realized, however, that the memorial for which I requested a photo is a duplicate of another memorial created many years earlier, and that the earlier memorial does have a photo of the stone. Not a good photo, but a photo nonetheless.

I'm sorry for sending you on a wild goose chase. I must have searched for "John T Hyde" and when the right name appeared, I clicked on his memorial and never realized that there was another memorial for him in the cemetery.

So no photo is needed, although if you've got a better photo for Phebe Hyde, you might want to upload it to the original memorial for her. (As you'll see she also has two.)

And, FYI, the way to photograph a stone like this, which is almost illegible, is to go to the cemetery at a time when the face of the stone is in shade. Take along one of those inexpensive mirrors from Target or Wallmart (the kind you stick on the back of a door). And take a friend, who can position himself or herself off to the side of the stone in a patch of sunlight. You'd be amazed at how the inscription will pop when the friend sends a beam of sunlight skimming along the face of the stone.

You might not believe it but this very old stone (# 95008086) was deep in shade under a tree and was absolutely illegible. The mirror trick revealed the inscription and the epitaph.

Take care and again, thanks so much for taking the time to help me.

Brian, Thank you for the photo of my in-laws gravestone. Haven't been back to Wellsville since we cleaned out the old house and forgot to check to see if the gravestone had been updated before we left. Appreciate your efforts!

Thank you so much for taking time to photograph this for me. Would you be kind enough to also post it to her husband's memorial Everett J Aiken ( 83365411)?
I do not get up that way very often and do so appreciate the help.

Thank you for looking. I did not post that information, so am not sure who she is, or what the source of that information was. I appreciate the time you took to take the photographs. Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much for taking and posting the pictures of Fred and Clara Hardy and Raymond and Minnie Wilson. They are my great great Uncles and Aunts who my grandmother talked so much about. I wish she was still with us so she could see the pictures too. I can't tell you how thankful I am for you. Vicky

Dear Brian, Despite not being able to fulfill some of my requests, I so appreciate your willingness to take the time to search. I know the elements have taken a toll on many tombstones. Your help with all of my requests is truly amazing.
