I'd love to help you in any way. My email address is I am available most any time. I'd really enjoy having someone that wanted to be there rather than feeling they had to go with me.

Strange!! All three photos are right side up for me. Mine and yours. Guess I'm wondering if any of my other photos are upside down. Would you mind checking Agee for me ?? Just leave the one you posted for Lawrence and fix the one for Mattie too! I'll delete mine for them. Thanks for offering but I don't need or care about credit for taking the photo. It's more important that the photo is correct for that memorial. If you find any more upside down of mine let me know. (Geez I'm now wondering if the photos Ive been. seeing are only upside or sideways to me). Let me know after you've fixed Mattie's and I'll delete mine. Thanks for letting me know. There are a lot of findagrave members, like you who know what this project is all about. I'm glad to have rubbed emails with you.

I'd enjoy helping you with photographing any cemeteries you work on. Sometimes, I don't like going by myself, but would love going with someone to help search or photograph to help you.

Lawrence Wilkinson
I reposted the photo for Lawrence. Can you check and see if one of the two are correct. I don't know what else to do. All three of my computers show it in the correct upright position.

Wilkinson photos Lawrenceand Mattie

I just checked those photos and they are not uopside down. They are correct. I do not or will not knowingly post photos that are sideways or only half of the headstone: I think it is disrespectful. I have noticed lots of people are posting photos that are sideways. They should be posted upright or I would rather not have one posted at all. Also it annoys me that many will not add the obituary any more. I am very disillusioned with Find A Grave anymore. Some think it is a game of numbers who can list the most or beat others. I can't even get a memorial listed anymore because someone beat me lusting it.

Multiple plots
I have seen this before. My cousin bought a plot at Baker Cemetery in Bollinger County. After moving to St. Louis, she sold her plot at Baker. It was listed in a cemetery book, so to avoid confusion, I made a memorial for her at Baker and added that the plot had been sold.

The last name is Caulk, not Cork. I will leave the memorials I created for her and her husband, unless someone demands they be removed.

RE: Arthur and Irma Vogel
That is awesome what you are doing! Thank you!

I have the original marriage certificate for Arthur and Irma Vogel.....I bought an old record player from an auction in Cape back in the late 80's or early 90's. That certificate was in the phonograph. The way I understand, they had no children.

Arthur and Irma Vogel

I am Bernard Laiben from Festus, MO....a recently retired band director.

I noticed the flowers you posted on Irma Vogel's "Find A Grave" page. Did you know her, or know any of her family? I have something of the Vogel's that family may want!

Thanks for your attention to detail, Ruth. I appreciate your note on Mathilda Meyers' page. I do not have any relatives in that cemetary. I just enjoy adding to the information on Find a Grave. -Amy

Thank you so much for catching that. I evidently missed the original site while looking. I have deleted mine.

RE: Amanda J Penney wrong cemetery
Thank you for removing the picture. I did notify her about changing the cemetery to Davis Cemetery. Still waiting on that which I know might take a bit of time for her to get to. The tombstones in that cemetery where in pretty good condition. Just lots of poison ivy.

Amanda J Penney wrong cemetery
Regarding Amanda J Penney #119936154, can you please remove your picture. She is not buried at the place you input picture of a general shot, she is actually buried at Davis Cemetery in Gordonville. Thank you.

Death certificate:

Death certificate looks like it says Fairmount, but it's hard to read. It could be something similar to that.

RE: Louise Frey Blank
Sorry this took so long, I just saw your message. Louisa was my great-grandmother and William Blank was her second husband. Her first husband was my family line so my info on it is a lot better but as far as I know she only had 3 children with William. Arnold was not one of them. Thanks for all your work, people like you have been a tremendous help to those of us searching our ancestors!

the one Hillcrest has died in 1948 and I put in for a photo of his niche.

Yours is different

RE: August Von Cloedt
Let me check with the caretaker on this one. He may have purchased a niche there only and had a card in the file for that. Maybe just cremated there only. I have notebooks of all of the cards written down.

I have researched Edward Bynum #114276497.
His death certificate has wrong race and last name is spelled wrong. His father Albert John Bynum is buried in same cemetery, #114276692. His mother married again. She is Anna A. A. Bush-Bynum-McGee. She married James Henry McGee. Both buried in Detroit, Michigan. Her #15335147.
Thanks for all the work you are doing.

Change made; go ahead and delete.

RE: Arthur Barrett Thomson
Good Morning Ruth,

I will change the cemetery on mine and you can delete the second....if that works for you.

Thanks for getting in touch.
