RE: Photos...
Hi,
Here are the other Heffners I found in Gardens of Faith:
William R. 1915-1988 and M.Kathleen 1913-1999
William F. 1889-1969 and Barbara F. 1893-1987
George and Gwendolyn (already have memorial page and photos posted by someone else)
I have photos for the markers of all of these people. Let me know if you create new memorial pages for any of these people and I'll be glad to add my photos to your pages. I just finished going through the entire cemetery today and I think I recorded all of the Heifers I found.

Judy, I'm not quite sure what you're asking me. If you're just piecing things together I think I see where you're going but I know very little about the people in my memorials. When tracking people backwards in the past, you almost have to be a detective to solve the mystery. Like you're doing now, piecing tidbits of information together and trying to come out with an answer, it can be very tough and frustrating. I know, I've been down that very same road with my family. I have a brother buried out on the west coast but that's all I know. My niece believes she found his wife in a nursing home at 90 years old but she's trying to put some tidbits together herself. If you want me to make a correction to Michaels' memorial, try not to send to much information, at my age, it only confuses me, lol. Bob

RE: Granzow, Brock Cemetery...
It is so odd, because I have looked on other devices and they weren't upside down there. I did delete them so as not to cause confusion. I don't have the column on my iphone that indicates if they are "claimed" but I did see column on teh Ipad. So, now I know to check that in the future. Still puzzled over the orientation of the pictures, what device (if you don't mind) are you using? Thanks, just trying to help others...
