In 1974 as a family, we started doing research on "Daddy's" side (all Cowles in USA are related - easy). Yes, I'm a Yankee, and all my family is up North, and I'm here in southwest Virginia. So, I'm trying to help the folks who aren't here, or who can't go to where their love ones are buried. I'VE MOVED BACK TO INDIANA AND AM LIVING IN STARKE COUNTY INDIANA (as of January 2013).
If anyone wants a memorial transferred to them, please let me know. You don't have to "prove it" like I see some people want you to do. Just let me know, and it'll be in your care!
I just saw a "blanket" permission by another graver to use his photos. Good idea...you may use any I took if you'll give the credit line "provided by" as I do. Please double check before entering the name of the provider. Thanks.
NOTE- WHEN A FEMALE IS BURIED UNDER A SURNAME OTHER THAN WHAT SHE WAS BORN WITH....I use "Unknown" as a maiden name until someone provides a correct maiden name. It shows that the last name on the memorial is NOT HER BIRTH NAME, BUT A MARRIED NAME AND NOTHING MORE.
I HAVE REMOVED MY E-ADDRESS FROM THIS SITE BECAUSE I'VE BEEN HACKED - SORRY! But I'm still active, alive and well. Please just post a message, and I will get it done.
John Oliver at Mount Hazel Cemetery(Detroit) Can you contact the City of Detroit to get a grave location? I haven't been able to find a stone for him yet. The last number I knew for the responsible department was 313-224-1103. If they can give you a location, it may narrow down my search area...
Margaret Rayner 1884-1957 I don't know where Margaret is buried. We couldn't find a headstone for Margaret in the Baljennie cemetery, so either she is unmarked or buried elsewhere. Maybe in another local cemetery or perhaps in Port Alberni, B.C. where her daughter went? My largest source of knowledge for the Lachman family is from Baljennie Reaches Far (a local history available on Our Roots Nos Racines website) p.37 article entitled "Abe and Margaret Lachman submitted by Lucille Surry." An obituary would likely give the place of burial; the likeliest newspaper would be the North Battleford News Optimist.
SSgt Clarence L Cooper Hi! Thank you so much for the transfer! Was going to tell you if the info did not post alright to let me know. I'm so glad you found and located his memorial stone there. Thanks again and God bless! :-) -J
It turns out that Enoch Massecar is not on lot 268 as listed in the book. He is beside his daughter Edith, who is beside her mother on AD II-23. I posted his stone photo to his memorial and photos of the stone of Edith to hers as well as the perspective photos
