All edits to memorials can be done through the EDIT on the memorial page. If I don't get to your edit in a weeks time, please leave a message in my message below. This will e-mail me so I can take a look. Thanks!

I currently live in Byron, Illinois, but grew up in Stillman Valley. I also retype out anyone's lists they have put together, and they do not have a desire to post it on Find a Grave.

If you find a Memorial I have created, and they're your family. Let me know! I am more than happy to transfer. The only exception to this is with Brooklyn cemetery. I am the Vice-President of this cemetery, and we are still researching people here and connecting them. If you want a high resolution picture, also let me know.

Photo Policy
I retain the rights to all photos I take, and no one may repost the photos without my permission. I give my permission to family members who would like to use the photograph in their family tree to do so. I simply ask that I am credited for taking the photo.

Transfer Policy
I will transfer immediate family members to those that ask. I will not transfer anyone from Brooklyn due to myself being on the board and we are using this to keep track of people and the info we find out on them as we restore it.

Charles Hauser at Flagg Center cemetery
I requseted the intial change. Charles and Hallie are my grandparents. Charles' middle name is Daniel. I know walking and recording a cemetery is a daunting task I assisted an Eagle Scout with one here in San Marcos, TX. Some stones are difficult to read. Please note that Hallie died in 1979 in CA but was brought home and buried there. Ralph Hauser who is located next to them is Charles' son from previous marriage. Charles was a widow. Little beknownst to many there are 2 infants buried there also with no headstone. Anna May Hauser was born and died in 1926 and Mary June Hauser born and died in 1930. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you
Theresa Ann Hauser Byfield

Hi Ben. Thank you for the transfer but it really wasn't necessary. I was wondering, is there anything one the stone that has Lake on it? I really need to know exactly. Thank you sir.

Mary Dewey - 31403505
I requested a photo of Mary's gravestone. This is the reply I received -

h your photo request for Mary Dewey.

The general problem they reported is:
I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave

They also reported, specifically:
We walked the entire cemetery and did not locate this grave. If you are able to call the cemetery and get the exact location, we can drive out to the cemetery again to take a picture for you.

Your photo request is still active and has not been removed. Hopefully, another contributor can fulfill your request. If you can fix the problems that were reported or have additional information that might help a volunteer photographer, please delete this request and create a new one, adding the additional information you have.

Link to your photo requests:

Link to memorial page for Mary Dewey:

Am just wondering where you got the information that she was buried in that cemetery. Her husband Lyman Dewey has a large stone - 31403503 in the cemetery.

Thanks for any help. Edna Dewey Fink
