|Emily Taylor||RE: Hattie Fleming photo|
I just did the ones that were requested, plus a couple of personal interest to me. My cousin, her husband and I spent the whole day out there clearing the cemetery which was severely overgrown and becoming a pine forest. If there are more you want put in a request and I can get them next time I'm in the area, though I usually only get up there once a year. My people are the Dicksons and Seales, who are yours?

Is there not a gravestone for her? Is the death certificate all you have? I have that and could have added it. Since it states she's buried at Elmwood I thought there would be a grave. I just now posted that request and you immediately put the death certificate up. Did you look for a grave?

No. I've only chalked them. While many people would slap me for doing so - I can't see how one chalking will permanently damage a 100 year old stone, when the chalk allows the opportunity for the writing to be revealed for a documentation photograph. I may be the only person who looks at it and records it, so pfffft on them. It's not like someone is out there every day working on a stone, left out in the elements and making it wear away too fast.
As long as it isn't permanent, I think you have to do what you have to do to read a marker - it's only going to be harder to read as the years pass. I don't see any difference between chalking and taking a rubbing.
I've never heard of the Barbasol/Squeegee method before, but that comes too close to a cleaning of a marker for me to be comfortable with. I'm all for dry stuff.

|Lori Humble||Evelyn Frazier / Woodlawn Cemetery, Tampa, FL|
Wanted to let you know that this is an unmarked grave. According to cemetery records the following are buried in this plot:
Southern Garden, Lot 846,
Space 2: Evelyn Frazier
Space 5: Melvin Ray Frazier
Space 6: Stovall W. Frazier
All are unmarked but I will put a picture on each memorial of the area. Let me know if I can help you further. Have a good day!
