Mary Allen in King Cemetery
Hi, I'm trying to find this grave to photograph but having problems. The bio states Mary married Obediah Allen in 1966 BUT he died in 1903. Is it possible this is just a typo or is there a different Mary Allen? I'm not finding a Mary McWilliams Delong Allen in the King Cemetery OR even buried in Madison county. Please advise. Thanks, Carolyn

I wanted to thank you for granting me permission to use your photos in my family tree. I haven't been on here a lot this summer, thus, I am slow to reply but thank you very much for your work and generosity! Eva

RE: Charles Porter
Thanks, I have photographed everything on the east side of Vaughn cemetery. I have not updated Find-A-Grave yet. Everything old on the east end is family in some fashion. Many markers are in poor shape, there are a few stacks of old broken markers piled up in places, and there are some graves with no markers. Find-A-Grave originally showed 92 burials including both sides, the west side is much newer. I took about 130 photo on the east side alone. I will be updating as time permits, then move on to the Ekis cemetery where Force's and other Smiths are buried. There is also a Smith cemetery in SW corner of Mahoning Co,

Beverly Graves request
If you can provide me with the section and plot number Crown Hill Trumbull County OH I'll try to get your photo. The cemetery wants me to pay $5.00 per name for that info.

Harry MacWilliams at Oakridge - Glen Oak Cemetery
Good morning Agent. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Oakridge - Glen Oak Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot Numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Mission Coordinates: Oakridge-Glen Oak Cemetery: 708-344-5600

Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request(s) will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck Agent!

Mission Commander

Mission Background: Oakridge - Glen Oak Cemetery is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials. Burial plot information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Oakridge - Glen Oak disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request.

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year your Mission Commander successfully completed almost 100 photo missions at Oakridge - Glen Oak Cemetery that had the grave location provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year he successfully concluded over 1,500 photo missions with over 700 successful missions already in 2014.

Mission Failure: Impossible

Eva .
Hello, I am writing to ask permission to use photos of the headstones you took of my family and ancestors for my own tree and genealogy? Please consider my request and let me know. If you ask me to give you the credit, I will gladly do so. Some Find A Grave volunteers want that and some do not. I only know these photos wouldn't be available without the Find A Grave volunteers and appreciate the work put into this. Eva

His wife, Charlotte Coats Gray is buried in Lookeba. It is entirely possible that Onis is buried there too. If you are in that area, maybe you could call them and ask.

RE: Thomas Roseberry Headstone
There is no formal office for the cemetery. The information on Forest Hill is managed by the Glen Ellyn Historical Society. When I've contacted them in the past I've written to Forest Hill Cemetery, 111 Sunset Avenue in Glen Ellyn, Illinois 60137. You should also check online to see if there is a phone number. I haven't done it in some time but I think the information is managed by a gentleman who uses his home phone for information on the cemetery.

I think it would be a good idea to contact them and then let me know what you find out. They might even be able to tell you if there is a headstone.

Thanks...I'll wait until I hear from you.

Thomas Roseberry Headstone
Before I respond to your request for a picture of Thomas Roseberry's headstone I thought I'd ask if you know whether or not there is a stone. I was there today and search the area but did not find one. I'm happy to go back again if you know for sure there is a stone. If not, I'll respond to the request saying I couldn't find one.

I found a large stone that said "Vance"
There were 2 names on it:
Leonard M. 1902 - 1951 and Mary Veva Peters no (dates)
Is this your request for Veva Peters?

RE: Vance
I found that one as I was driving out of the cemetery. I had already searched that section. I don't know why I missed it the first time.

The one remaining mystery is Howard Vance's headstone. Do you know if he is buried in a separate place? Could his marker be the missing section on the left of the Vance headstone?

I'll keep looking.

Robert T. Hall and his Parents
Re: Find A Grave Memorials 122730145, 122729274, and 122729543

Many thanks for posting the photo of the grave marker of Thomas Edgar Hall and Josephine McMains Hall, which contains the memorial inscription for their son Robert T. Hall.

I see that you posted the same photo on the memorial site for Robert T. Hall at Cambridge American Cemetery (#56290372). To avoid confusion, it would be best to add a caption which identifies this photo as the memorial marker for Robert T. Hall at Waynetown Masonic Cemetery in Waynetown, Montgomery County, Indiana.

Thanks again,
