In response to your request for any information on the Elmer family, I am sorry I don't have any more. Obviously, while researching West Lowville Rural cem, I came across the name. Charlotte

RE: Thank you!
You are very welcome, Peg. If I find more information about Lt. Malcolm Hutchinson, I'll send it to you. It's too bad the two pages can't be merged with both photos and information. If Malcolm is a relative of yours perhaps the other contributor, who is inactive right now, would let you manage Lt. Hutchinson's memorial pages and they could be combined. Thank you for your dedicated work to Find A Grave.

Saving Cream, etc.
FindaGrave rules prohibit disturbing a stone in any way. Please do not recommend or use this technique.

Are there any suggestions in order to take a photo of a headstone that is hard to read?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone. We DO NOT recommend you do anything to the headstone to make it easier to read or easier to photograph. If it is a flat grave marker, you may be able to brush off loose dirt and debris. If the grave marker is in the shade or has little sun, it is possible to try different angles in relation to the sun or to use something simple, like a mirror or aluminum foil, to reflect sunlight onto a headstone face that is shaded and thus difficult to read in a photo. This does not in any way alter the stone itself, and one does not even need to touch the stone in order to reflect light. Harmless and effective solution for dark or shaded faces of grave markers, which improves the resulting photo.

RE: Thank you!
Wow, shaving cream and a squeegie? I've actually never done a "chalking." I have used epoxy and put some of my people back up on their stands. I'll have to keep that in mind. Sorry we couldn't find them; we felt let down. However I've never seen a cem with so many old intact graves that were illegible. Usually the vandals knock everything down!

RE: Thank you!
You are welcome. It was the strangest thing. I pulled in, parked and the very first marker I looked at was Charles Knight! And his neighboring stone of Charles Beaudoen had a request as well. I got lucky.

RE: Steven Longdo?
Peg, Thank you for the request and for the follow up e-mail. I have already fulfilled it with the two photos I had on my computer. Don't know why I didn't post them when I took them. I don't usually wait for a request. I don't believe there were any dates on this monument.

RE: Steven Longdo?
Peg, Just answered my own questions. I took those photos in June of 2012 and I actually do have a picture (two, in fact) of Stephen Longdo's grave though in was very light and didn't photograph real well (hence, one of the pictures in a closeup). Please do put in the request but send me the e-mail so I can claim it immediately before someone else does.

RE: Steven Longdo?
I will do my best. Please put in the request ASAP because I'll be heading to Florida in another month or so. When did I write the message you are referring to and at which cemetery (?Fairview in Gaylord or Mancelona?)? Please send me a separate e-mail to (put the words "Find A Grave" in the subject head) as well as placing the request through Find A Grave.

RE: Charles Ewing Elmer (1819-1889)
Hello Peg,

I posted the photo of Charles Ewing Elmer from a book that my older brother gave many years ago called "Cumberland County and South Jersey During The Civil War" (originally entitled "Historic Days in Cumberland County, New Jersey 1855-1865") by Isaac T. Nichols (1907). It has portraits from many Civil War veterans from Cumberland County and many prominent citizens during that era. Mr. Elmer was considered one of the many leaders of public opinion for that time in Cumberland County. According to the book he was a member of the Electoral College from N.J when it came time to elect Republican candidate Abraham Lincoln for U.S. President in 1860. He may also be distantly related to me from my mother's side through the many Elmer's from Cumberland County. Thanks for the message, best regards, Kurt

Find Grave Request
I found the Cardinal Family grave at Silver Lake Cemetery in Wolverine Mich. It did not have the 2 names you asked for BUT there are spaces around it where there could be missing markers. I find that there are many missing markers in this cemetery. I can submit the family stone if you think it is the same family. I'm sure they are located at this stone.
