Thank You for taking the time to photograph and post the photo of Dr. Frank A. Jordan. I noticed that his mother-in-law is also on the marker. Would you mind posting the photo to her memorial also. I will post a photo request for you.

Esther M. Smith
Esther is buried in Cedarville Cemetery, Illinois
She was born in 1899 and died 13 Mar 1967.
Would it be possible for you to photograph her headstone?
She did a great deal of genealogy work back when you had to write letters! I don't want her left out at this point. THANK YOU.

Isabel Odgers Brown
Isabel Edwina Odgers Brown was my great grandmother. She died when my grandmother, Molly, was just 2 years old.

Prior to finding the information on Find A grave, all we knew was that Isabel was buried in a country church yard near Shullsburg, WI.

Thanks to Find A Grave, I have found the exact location of her grave and her parents, John Thomas Dunston and Mary (Roberts) Odgers as well as several of her brothers and sisters.

I want to express my deep and heartfelt gratitude for your time and effort of obtain these photos. Having these photos means a great deal to me.

Again, thank you very much.

Thank you very much for the headstone photos of the memorials for Bernard and Margaret McGinnis. I appreciated the detailed, close up photos, as the stones have really begun to deteriorate. Thank you!

Sanford M. Vorse
Hi. I received a message from Find a Grave that you had responded to my request, but I was not able to see a photograph of Sanford Vorse's grave on the site. I did see a photo of the Cemetery sign, and if that is what you posted, I appreciate it. Thanks for your help.

Julianna Willson
Thank you very much for the transfer of Juliana Willson. She is, related to the Bigelow/ Converse family through Marriage. My mother is a Converse. What a shame the markers are so worn. I do believe all of the Willsons in this particular cemetery are related. I am still trying to figure it out and find them all. It is so difficult when the markers cannot be read and other markers are gone. There are so many Willson/ Wilsons. Not all listed here.

Thank you also for help in finding them! If people were not volunteering, Creating Memorials and getting the names and photos on them, we would not find our distant families.

God Bless!

I'm so happy you uncovered the stone for these little babies. There was confusion from the obits as to which died on which date. This has helped clarify. I had them correct to start with, then switched them based on a suggestion and an obit. This has confirmed by original memorials were correct. So now they are back where they belong. Thank you very much for the photos and your help.

Hi to the VanFleets,

Thank you so much for all the photos! I just recently found my relative Arthur V. Carlson, so am very happy to have a photo of his marker and all the others that you took. I live out in California and have requested other photos before in Illinois and Wisconsin, but your response was so quick with the photos that I was amazed. Thank you so much!!

Dear VanFleets,
To say "thank you" seems so small for the service you have provided me. I truly appreciate you getting this photo for me. This is my great great grandfather's brother. Until Ancestry starting putting census records and indexes on the Internet, I had no clue where to begin looking. It was like he fell off the face of the earth. I was truly excited when I discovered his family in Lee County. I have long wanted this photo, so once again I thank you.

Thank you ever so much! I have been looking for information on my maternal great grandparents and you just helped a great deal. My E. N. Hubbard was Edward Newton Hubbard, and I hope that this is one and the same. I will look for further resources to connect this and validate. I am in my 70's living in a suburb just outside of Sacramento, California.

I want to thank you for the photos of my great great grandparents headstones, and that of my great grandfather's sister who died as an infant.

Since I reside far from Illinois now this means more to me than you can imagine. I'm filling in the missing pieces of my family history and all I had was the old photograph of Henry. He has always been a bit of a mystery...

Thank you again,

Richard York
