RE: Webster
Melinda,
you are welcome! The SF Columbarium is an amazing place. Do take the time to see it if you go to San Francisco. The building's architecture is amazing and the niches are fascinating. I did this as part of Ancestry.com's Find-a-Grave day, Oct 18 which was a world wide event. It was fun to do it as a community. I've only done it solo before.

re:websters photo. requests
Hi, I happened to see your request and attached note.
Some facts. The Columbarium is NOT a cemetery. The Columbarium is an interesting and unique mausoleum. No headstones. I am a good photographer and find taking photos. there very, very difficult at best. It is not lit very well and the niches have such variety that one cannot categorize them. The top row is about 8'-10' off the floor. Nothing surprises me when looking for one.
Many are unmarked, just a name or only a blank concrete cover. Many are covered in glass; THAT makes them very difficult to photograph. So many are very old and the contents are falling apart and/or covered in dust.
It was abandoned for decades. The Neptune society has taken it over and have done a very nice job restoring it. It really is an attractive building. They are fairly helpful and courteous but I get the feeling that photography is not encouraged so I try to be inconspicuous. I live a mile away and MAY try photographing there again this summer. Cheers~rp

RE: Laura Bostwick
Glad to help. Laura's headstone photo is posted now. There was 8 photo requests for that cemetery. I found half in my very quick search. Wish I could have found more.

Laura Bostwick
I have good news. I found your photo request at Old Belding Cemetery in Ionia County Michigan for Laura Bostwick. You asked if there were other Bostwicks there. I did not see anymore....however it was sleeting with a strong wind (I was freezing so could have missed others). She was resting between a Jacob L Rose and a Samuel Rose. Hope that helps. I would love to search the cemetery again but I live a couple hours away. Maybe in the spring.

RE: Mother and son link
Hi Melinda,
You'll have to contact Mike H, who is the contributor of Max Cluff's memorial, in order to get him linked to his mother. All links have to be done through the child's page. Luckily, Mike is very good at taking care of requests. I have worked with him a lot in the past.

Thanks,
Logan

RE: Mc Andrew Photos
Given the marriage info I'd now say the Thomas born in 1829 is not Margaret's husband. As far as Find A Grave goes, there are already memorials for all the people on the obelisk and for Thomas. The one for Thomas has incorrect dates because the photographer didn't scrape off the heavy moss and so read the dates incorrectly. I posted my photo and sent the manager a correction notice. I checked for Thomas before I went out but because of the incorrect dates I didn't think he was there and I didn't have the names on the second face of the obelisk so I wasn't sure if your Thomas was listed there or not. The cemetery records don't have a Thomas born in the 1840s so I'd say he's somewhere else. I hope that helps.

BTW, I use sharpened popsicle sticks to remove moss as that does no harm to the stone. Its a technique I learned when we were inventorying the cemetery. Just so you know no Find A Grave rules were violated.
