Mine was created in 2001...I'm surprised it didn't come up when you did yours in 2013!

Here is the obit if you care to add it to his page...

DECKER JOHN F. passed away May 29, 2001 in Oakland CA at the age of 79.

Graduated from Hayward High School 1940.

Much beloved husband of Shirley Decker for 58 years.

Father of sons Gary, Bruce, Dennis and daughter Nancy.

He will be greatly missed by his loving family and many wonderful friends.

RE: 80384017 Samuel Black
No, Wm Henry Black is NOT son of this Samuel. Are you certain he's from THIS Black family. There is another Black family in Adams County that echoes a lot of the same names. If you'd like to share what you have on him, I'll try and help.

RE: The Taylor's
The three Taylor headstones were below the surface an inch or two so most Find A Grave volunteers did not find them. I'm not sure how old your requests were but I am glad I could help you out.

RE: Florine Smith
I have two Florine Smith memorials. Could you please suggest the edits by using the edit button on the memorial? This is the most efficient way of getting changes made and of making sure the correct memorial is updated.

thank you

Hi Hemi:
I really don't know any more about Central Cemetery in San Francisco. After a lot of searching for her burial location I found a funeral home record that recorded her being buried in Central Cemetery along with the burial plot.
I haven't tried to find the history (relocation?) of the cemetery.

Me again . . .

Sorry, I forgot to tell you that I looked for an obit for Nancy and did not find one.

Hi . . .

Yes, Laus Creek Cemetery is on the Iowa Tribal Reservation. If you know the last name I am sure that you could contact the tribal office and get the family information. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

RE: John and Nancy Hoagland
A friend and I both took a day to photo all of the stones there. We will try to see if we have one in our computers that we missed. Otherwise, I am afraid that it is one that might have been in pieces and we could not see whose stone it was. There were a couple of those.

RE: Nancy Craig Photo
You are very welcome. So glad we could help. Since the stone has an exact date of death I will try to find the obit for you and post it in the "caption" section under the photo. Don't know if it will be this week, but will look for it as soon as I can.

Ann Souther # 87624170
I won't be taking the photo so in order to get the picture of her husband's stone, which may be located next to hers, you may want to make this request with the photo request of Ann Souther. The volunteer who picks up your request may be able to help.

Thank you

RE: Photo Sophie Roemer
Hi .... Yes, when requests don't show the burial site, I go to; if the date is after 2001, then I ask the helpful H.C. office staff. Having that data base available is very handy!

RE: Mathilda and Charles Black
I'm happy to be of help! Thanks for your note of appreciation.

If you do go to visit them, there is a typo in their plot information; they are actually located in:

East Side Gardens
Lakeside Columbarium
Section O
(not section Q ... there is no section Q)
Niche 28
Tier 2
(the second row from the bottom).

The Lakeside Columbarium is the big building to the right you see as you turn into the Eastside Gardens; it's usually open until 4:30pm each day. Once inside, go up a couple of steps and the Sections are marked on the floor.
