RE: MW Yowell
Hi Art,
I was going on the idea of "keep the first memorial created," but if you would like to keep this memorial active, let me know and I'll contact the owner of the other memorial instead.

Concerning the dates: as it turns out, there are obituaries published in 1893 that verify that Matthew died in that year -- so I was surprised to see that his tombstone appeared to say otherwise.

But looking closely, you can see that the final digit has an indent on its right side, which makes it more likely to be a "3" than a "9".

The top loop still makes it look very "9"-ish, but there's an indication that this is a glitch in the photo: the part that closes the loop and seems to make it a 9 instead of a 3 extends out farther than the digit itself, so it's very likely an artifact of some kind.

RE: Eunice Blackler
I see the two entries that you are referring to. I don't know anything about who created them or why. I don't know if there are two entries for one person, or two different people with similar names.

All I know is that I am looking for a Eunice (Hooper) Blackler at this time person, and when I looked for her, I found the memorial for her already created there, though I am surprised as I expected to find my person in New Bedford, MA.

I'm going to try to call the cemetery office, if I can find it, to see if I can get more info about her.

Thanks again for looking into this for me!

Eunice Blackler
Hi Art,

I assume that she is still buried in the cemetery, but simply has no stone. That's still possible, isn't it?

Thanks, Art!

Art, Thanks so much for beautiful photo on above site. Didn't realize when you photographed the Lowman sites that Mildred's mother was there also. Hope our snow is over for the year. Richard

Schottler Sites in Maplewood Memorial Lawn
Art, I noticed your note on contributor page of
Diana Hart (#47463985) who has Schottler sites. She seems to be inactive for long period of time--Do you have any other information? I am going to refer this to Administration. Richard. & Happy Holidays.

Hopper House
Photo of Davey Darrell Hopper
Thank you so much for the photo of the headstone of my brother, Davey Darrell Hopper. I was there last Friday and took pictures but when I got home to Arkansas (about 7 hours away) and uploaded my pictures they were gone! I don't know what I did to mess up my camera and pictures but I did a good job of it and I was SICK! I went ahead and added him to Find A Grave when I saw the photo request button. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this picture!

John & Alice Smalley
I created a memorial for John Smalley #116744303.
Wondered if it is possible for you to add the photo of the joint headstone to John's memorial that you added for his wife Alice Smalley #44721134.
