Cole Canfield
I'm Sorry! I should have checked the Find A Grave records first.
I see that Cole is the only Canfield left to photo. There is no record in Forest Lawn Cemetery for Cole Canfield, but his obituary in Saginaw's geneology site shows him buried in Forest Lawn.
I'll keep an eye out for him while I'm taking photos!

Canfields in Forest Lawn Cemetery
I noticed that you have a note on Cole Canfield's photo request asking for photos of any/all Canfields in Forest Lawn Cemetery. You also asked if you should enter each request individually. The answer is yes. Forest Lawn Cemetery has over 42,000 people buried there and covers over 40 acres so the plots are spread out over a large area.
I tend to try to take all of the requests from one section to photo for one day because it takes me approximately an hour to find, clean, and photo the headstone/plot in question. (I also take photos of any other people in the same plot at the same time because I've found that most of them are usually related to the person in the request) so...that hour is spent on just one photo request. Now add several other requests in the same section and there is my time allotment for the day.
I think that most people do that with Forest Lawn for that reason. I don't mean to 'lecture', just trying to help.
Best wishes!

Canfield photos
I went to Forest Lawn Cemetery in Saginaw, MI and took photos of Matilda Canfield.. There is also a separate Canfield plot, where I photographed Allie, Irene, Delia and Channey. There is some errors in the information, dates etc.. so I sent a message to the person that set up the memorials.
I saw you have a request for a Cole Canfield. The obit index says he was buried at Forest Lawn, but there is no record of him in the online cemetery records.

Eliza Canfield
You placed a request for photograph of Eliza Canfield back in December 2010, the memorial was recently photographed, thoughts I'd pass this information on to you.

Life is good,

Ferdinand Canfield
I went to Evergreen Cemetery today. I got what I thought was the right grave location Section E, Lot 25. When I went to Section E, I found a grave for Ferdinand Campfield, not Canfield. I thought this was the right person, but now I don't think so.
I will return to Evergreen within the next week and find the right grave.
Have a good day.

Fannie Canfield
I have loaded the photo for Fannie. The marker is very faint and is much easier to read in person

Sec. B lot 23
Space 1
Space 2 John Pierce d.1881
Space 3 Margaret Pierce d.1864
Space 4 Flora Pierce d.1855 no marker
Space 5 George Canfield inter.1912 no marker
Space 6 Anna Caufield inter.1907 no marker
Space 7 Frank Canfield
Space 8 Olement Canfield no marker

There were 3 additional markers but all were unreadable.

RE: Dear Paul,
Dear MJ,

You are very welcome. No snow when I photographed the stones
but we got a snowstorm that left 5 inches Saturday morning. It
was not a Canfield that we know in common. I believe an historian
you contacted told me about Mary Grace

Merry Christmas, Paul

RE: Tombstone pictures
I am sorry to say that I did not, as far as I can recall. Sometimes
the email fails to come to me, something I found out only a short
while ago. I had this problem with another email I used but did not
think it ever happened with Yahoo email. Now I find that some of
it is going to SPAM and so I never empty spam without checking it

RE: Tombstone Pictures in Woodlawn
Dear MJ,

Thank you so much for telling me this. It is most encouraging. I
was happy to find such stones. Someone you contacted, cannot
recall whom, told me you were related to Mary Grace. I was a big
fan of hers

Not a problem at all. As soon as I get time I'll try to take care of the one at Minden as well.

Looking Glass
Hi, I wanted to let you know I will try to fill your request in the Spring if not sooner depending on the weather. I live about 30 miles from the cemetery but feel terrible because I was just at the cemetery today looking for and ancestor. I wished I had checked the photo request. Also I am curious because a male relative buried in Meadowbrook was married to a Canfield.

RE: George Perry TS Picture
I also put on a Mary Frances Perry which was right next to those two stones. Probably related also. Jean

I am not a relative but I have coffee everyday with a couple of his [i think] great grandchildren and did some restoring on that picture which I think was a tintype and possibly the only picture of him,He died pretty young.

Canfields CarsonCity
Hello there! I know I mentioned this before but I dont remember if I followed up(heehee) Did you want me to post or send you photos of the Canfields around Clare and Vera? Or did I already send them? I have a Lester, Ida, Anna, May, (maybe Anna May), Claude, Grace, and George. I had all these when I took the photo the first time for you, however I couldnt locate them in my files so when I was there the other day I stopped by and paid my respects and retook the photos.

Margaret Canfield
I had a photo request for Margaret Canfield, in the Prairie City, IL cemetery. James and George are both there. Please place a request for each of them if you would like their memorial photographed. Thanks cj

Margaret Canfield
While in the cemetery, I also took photos of George and James' monuments, wondered if you would like to request them too. Also wondered if the Canfield's were related to the Ramer family as they are buried, if I remember correctly, in the same lot.
