Thanks for getting his gravestone photo. Was his wife (Mary C Howe Poole) buried next to him? I requested her photo also. The Cook Co. Death Index says she was buried at Graceland.

I got your correction for Louise Beck. Are you related? If so, I can make transfers.

The Howes in Graceland
I just tried to send an email to and got a delivery error message.

Thank you for making the memorials for Samuel and his wife Sarah, adding the photos, and transferring the memorials to me. I am having lots of fun sorting through all the Howes in this plot.

You took a lot of photos of Howe gravestones and inscriptions and put most of them on existing memorial. Here is a list of the inscriptions on the big monument.
West Side--Samuel & Sarah Cook Howe
South Side--Isaac Howe, Mary Jones Howe, & George Howe (their son who died at age 23 and apparently never married)
North Side--Isaac Nevin Howe (who died at age 16 and never married)

What was carved on the east side of the big monument?

Another question for you. Time Traveler made a memorial (#132331855) for Infant Howe, son of Samuel. Did you see such a marker? I'd like to link that memorial to Samuel, but I want to be certain that the child was buried in the Howe plot.

Thanks again,

Hello, I tried to remove the request as I contacted the cemetery and found out that there is no headstone for Frances Christine Swanson or
Roy Otto Swanson. Thank you for your help but would you please remove as Find A Grave will not let me remove the request. I do not know why as I made the request.
Thank you for offering to take the pictures for me.

Thanks for going the extra mile and doing that detective work to find the headstone for Amelia! The picture looks great!

I have created a memorial for Carl if you want to attach his photo there, instead of on Amelia's memorial. Find A Grave Memorial# 135935164.

I appreciate all you've done! Thanks again!
