Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Novialyn Alford and her husband Robert in Glen Haven Memorial Gardens (Memorial# 21927185).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Ohio Obituaries, where Novialyn's obituary is included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, I
will add this to the photo caption:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Rick Boswell

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,

Rick, please hold up on Julia Watson transfer as we are trying to make sure she is the Julia Watson we are looking for. I am sorry to be a bother but we want to make sure before documenting
her. We have recently found another Julia Watson... so we are making sure.
Thanks again...

Hello Rick,

I am a 2nd cousin of Julia May Watson and I would like to link her with her parents on Find A Grave.

Would you mind transferring her memorial to me.

I appreciate all your hard work. This is a blessing that we found her.
