|DJ Mercier||RE: Polvard|
Thanks for responding. The cemetery is Peebles Cemetery in Providence, Polk County & the last name is spelled Polvadore. In your photo, the name on the husband's side of the headstone is W D Jack Polvadore. The photo needed is for his wife's side of the headstone. Her name is Cora (Channel) Polvadore. Hope this helps you.

The above memorial is for Cora (Channel) Polvadore. At one time, Cora had duplicate memorials. When Find A Grave combined the two, her headstone photo was lost. The headstone photo on her husband W Donald "Jack" Polvadore's memorial 53770467 was taken by you. In the photo, it appears to be a dual headstone. Am hoping you took a photo of Cora's side at the same time & might still have the photo. If so, would appreciate your adding the photo to her memorial. Otherwise, I will send through a photo request. Thanks for your help with this matter.

I was wondering by chance are you related to Jasper or his wife. Jasper would be my husbands great grandpa. I am trying to work on my husbands Genealogy. I was hoping might be some kind of connection.
Thanks Priscilla Chorman McCormick

|Robert Brotherhood||RE: Loniel Carr|
Well, the interesting thing is that via Ancestry.com memorials without a (sur-)name on Findagrave can be accessed (a name MUST be entered on Findagrave!) and so they can be researched e.g. either via Soc. Sec. Death Index (or censusses, etc.) on Familysearch.org (free!), or name(s) read from the gravestone photo, which - to my surprise - could not be read by the contributor.
If I can read it from a photo, then why could people not read the name from the gravestone, which should always be better quality than a photo?
To be positive and to answer that question: Often gravestones are photographed in bulk, then read and entered to Findagrave at home. If it is difficult to read: skip (i.e. name=Unknown), and continue with the next one, as there are a few hundred waiting.....
Also: name Unknown... Well, it is just under the grass near the edge of the gravestone... why not cut the grass away? Too much trouble.
And: gravestone unreadable... Well, photographers should always have a mirror or light source with them to shine light at an OBLIQUE angle over the letters, which will then be clear to read!
So, many more can still be identified.
Have a nice day.

|Priscilla||How I found Dorothy Pauline|
I do searches for entries here that have no last names on the memorials and sometimes I can find records that show what their first name and last names are. I was doing a search for first names beginning with Dor, and Dorothy Pauline came up.
I find it a challenge to fill in missing last names.
Added by Priscilla on Aug 01, 2014 5:46 PM
I did a search for a Dorothy in the Social Security Death Index, using her date of birth and death.
