(2) Clarence E Woodworth-memorial #78185198
(3) Ralph E Woodworth-memorial #78185261
(4) Elisha E Woodworth-memorial #78185151
(5) Amanda M Ladd - memorial #78185175

Photo requests...
Hello, Carol,
I have claimed two of your photo requests;however, the burial sites are in a columbarium. I have contacted via email the church where the remains are entombed in order to determine if I will be able to be near or inside the columbarium. My intentions are, at the very least, to take pictures for you as close as possible to the actual places where your relatives are entombed; for example, photos of the church, the entrance to the site of the columbarium, and the exterior of the structure,etc. I will keep you informed.

May I use the photo of his headstone on my Ancestry.com tree?

Thank you, Karen

I guess without the plot location the cemetery is being unreasonable. When a person dies he becomes public property. By taking photos and sharing them we are NOT in violation of the Privacy Act. It must depend on who you are talking to and how lazy they are. I appreciate your trying. I will leave the request and maybe somewhere down the line we will get that photo.

My reply to your note -
I physically went to this cemetery and was denied access to the location of the grave requested. I was asked to produce a VALID/VERIFIABLE AUTHORIZATION from a family member. This request by the office at Lawncroft was made specifically when I mentioned Find A Grave....I was told further told that their office was following the requirements of the "Privacy Act". This was a VERY strange request. I went to two other cemeteries the very same day and had no issue. Please advise how I can overcome this problem. Thank You ~Carol~ I can be reached directly at grandmaquilter6@aol.com
===============================================

Someone is just being lazy. Once a person dies they become public property and not the property of the cemetery. What they told you is incorrect.

I would go back and speak to someone else. Don't mention Find A Grave and if asked, be a cousin. We are related in someone or another anyway.

Esther Beach
Esther Beach, interred in Unity Cemetery in Trumbull, CT, was eight years old when she died in 1745, not 6 months. It states that on her tombstone. I put up a correct entry for her, but if you'd prefer, you can correct your entry and let me know, and I'll delete mine. Thanks.

Hi Carol,
You attached the wrong photo to the David Booth who died April 24, 1842. I added one, but if yours is better please add it and I will delete mine.

Booths
Thank you for all the pictures you have taken for me of the Booth's in Unity Cemetery. I think you are also the one that told me about the book, They Face the Rising Sun ? It was a great help also. There are about five Booths in the book that I have not been able to place in my tree yet, but maybe it is just a matter of time.
You have been most helpful. I hope one day to get to Connecticut and see Unity for myself but I'm afraid that is a long ways down the line.

Thank you so much for obtaining this photo for me. It helps me sort out a few items in my tree.

I wish I could come visit that old cemetery the stones look so interesting.

Thanks again!!!

Thank You!
Carol,

Just wanted to thank you so much for taking a picture of Stephen Osborn's headstone. There's a lot of my family history in Fairfield. I look forward to visiting one of these days.

Best,
Carrie

Thank for for the photo of David Booths headstone. I appreciate your time and effort.
It has left me with yet another mystery to solve. I have his birth date as 8/26/1761 but his stone says he died at 91 yrs old in 1842.

Thank you for the photo of the stone. I would love to have a copy of the page in "They face the rising sun" if you can scan it. I'm going to see if our library has the book so I can have a look at it.

RE: BIG HUG & a THANK YOU!
Hi Carol,

It was my pleasure. I know how much I enjoy getting the email that my request has been fulfilled, so I try to help others get it, too.

The flowers were there, and I would guess they were placed fairly recently. Maybe Mothers Day?

If you'd like the larger originals, email me at eobfindagrave@gmail.com.

Thanks,
Eileen

I am so sorry that the folks at the cemetery think they are protecting something. They are actually hiding behind the Privacy Act. Once a person is dead he becomes public property. If I can get an answer to this question I will advise you. That cemetery is very wrong.

Thanks for trying though I do appreciate your help.
