That's great, Deborah! Thanks for all your effort in making sure Jesse is properly honored!

RE: Jesse Gordon
Thanks for deleting the original memorial! I agree - the information in yours is more accurate and is what should be on the memorial. However, instead of creating a duplicate memorial, the edits should have been sent using the "edit" tab. I think if the creator of the memorial is inactive, these automatically go to the Find A Grave administrators, and they will make the edits. Another alternative is to send the request directly to Now that we have 2 memorials for him in the right cemetery, I think the best option would to send an email to this address and ask them to merge the two. I don't want to lose any of the flowers or information on either memorial. I think it would be best if you did it, but I can do it if you want.

Just wanted to add some more "boots on the ground" info: he is buried in Lindsey-Stearns cemetery. If you want to confirm for yourself which one he is in (though Donna's photo was taken in Lindsey-Stearns) you need only click on the map tab on the main cemetery page for Lindsey-Stearns, and notice that Cave Creek is visible just to the east of the cemetery, as is indicated in the description you posted. That's a neat bit of info you found, you should be sure to send it to admins to add to the original memorial so that when you delete the duplicate it isn't lost. It is confusing that there are two cemeteries with Stearns in the name. There's actually even a third one, but hardly anyone calls it that anymore, thankfully!

I just uploaded a picture I took of Jesse's headstone in 2009. I took it at the Stearns-Lindsey (or Lindsey-Stearns) Cemetery in Pomona. I included all this information in the description of the picture. Let me know if this helps!

RE: Jesse Gordon
Yes, a Find A Grave friend of mine started separating the cemeteries. I'm not sure Jesse's headstone is still legible. I will check the photos I have from the two cemeteries and see if I have one.

RE: Mary Ann Hatfield Zang
Deborah, I generally make memorials with information from the inscriptions on the stone, and photographing them. I have some contributing friends who come along behind me and try their best to link them to their families. I'm having them see if they can find where the Hatfield came from. It could also come from an edit. I'll let you know as soon as I hear something.

Glad you found some concrete evidence. No biggie, he's your family anyway. Thanks for letting me know the outcome!

RE: Samuel Noah Sutton
Deborah, it was clearly a matter of trusting someone elses findings that apparently have wrong data. I, like you did not find a DC, but that is not always that unusual. In this case, something is clearly wrong and I will just take his Memorial out of the picture. Thank you. Pam

RE: Pansy Shafer Calvin
That is the only info I needed, thank you. I have posted a photo of her marker on her memorial. I have connected Jimmy Calvin to her.

I have a photo of a marker for a Pansy D Calvin and I would be happy to add it to your memorial if they are the same person. Do you know her spouse's name? That may help to clear this up. Thanks.

Have you seen these photos?

I see you did already suggest the edit for him. :) It's great now that they give you a date, when it will be processed. I hadn't seen that before.

RE: Vera (Polson) Brooks
Hi Deborah! Thank you for the message. I am not related to the POLSONs except by marriage. If I have any other pictures of the family, they are unidentified. I do have many that don't have names on them. If you send me your email address I will put in my computer with Vera, and let you know if I discover anything about Logan, John, or Reuben.
One tip... you may already be aware of it, but did you know that you can add parents to a memorial, even if you are not managing it? It is on the edit tab. It will need to be approved, but sometimes that happens pretty quickly.

RE: Felix Baker Cemetery
I just looked on Google maps and it is there. THe road is East of Long Branch Lake. Go up that road to Javelin Place. Javelin place runs right into the apartment or duplex. The gravel back lot runs against the cemetery site. On the sat. view of google maps it is covered with a canopy of trees!,+MO+63552/@39.7753711,-92.4997127,292m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x87dd4d25893d2c1f:0x863439db8c1f4fc6

RE: Felix Baker Cemetery
That cemetery has been forgotten and more or less abandoned. If you go up the road there by long branch lake there is a duplex or apartment on the west off a side road with an animal name. The parking lot for this apartment runs right up to the trees. If you walk into the trees there you will start seeing stones. They are buried and turned over. I would imagine that lots of them are missing. I guess people just stopped taking care of it years ago and this s what's left. One other warning about that one is watch out for the poison oak. I got into it there on one trip! Maybe some people can find out about returning it to some kind of decent condition(for whatever is left).

I hope this helps.

RE: June and Velma Bushnell
Happy to do it. While I was at it, I discovered that Velma had no memorial so created one. Also added photos to memorials for infant sister Ardela and parents Frank and Mary Lou. All five family members are in close proximity.
