To all I have helped with photo requests: You're welcome! :)
When viewing memorials, always be sure to CHECK FOR CAPTIONS on attached news articles, photos, etc., by clicking on the picture. The captions are then below the photos. In my memorials, there's usually pertinent info there.

|Richard Reynolds||Mathias memorials|
Thinkin' about Lincoln. Yes I realized I put duplicate memorials in the cemetery. I did so, as to add the needed information I obtained. I tried contacting the orginal memorial makers of the memorials through the edit location and did not receive any word back. Since these memorials are of my wife's relatives I added the information of seperate memorials.
|OPPSheryl||RE: Obit on wrong memorial|
Thanks for the correction. I deleted the obit...now hunting for the other Mary Carey.

Oh, what a special surprise this is -- thank you so very much! Your research re: Bridget Walsh Webber, specifically her death certificate with her place of birth in Ireland, is my family's link to Ireland. My late mother always told us County Clare versus County Mayo. I have been working ever so hard on my Irish ancestors the last 4+ years. I uncovered Bridget as a heretofore "unknown" sister of my great-grandmother, which lead me to your Find A Grave memorial and ... the "rest is history" as they say! I cannot tell you how much this means to me and my family. Your generosity in transferring Bridget and her daughter to me means so much. I will take special care of Bridget and Grace. Thank you, again. -- Susan Hopkins
|Susan Hopkins||RE: Bridget Webber's photo|
Deleted per your request. Appreciate the transfer more than you know -- thank you.
|Susan Hopkins||RE: Bridget Webber's photo|
Hello, Would you like me to transfer your memorial back to you? Happy to do that if I can. I can and will delete the headstone photo from the memorial I created as I will be visiting the cemetery in May and will be photographing family headstones, etc. while in Fort Wayne for a few days. Apologies for offending you.
|Susan Hopkins||Re: Bridget C. Webber, M. Grace Webber, & Milton Webber memorials|
Would you consider transferring management of the above-mentioned memorials to my care? Bridget C. Webber is my great-grandmother's (Margaret Walsh Baylis) sister; M. Grace Webber was her niece; Milton Webber was Bridget's husband and Grace's father. Thank you for your consideration.
|Jan Bond||Elzie Kifer 1896-1965|
After seeing your entry for him, I did some searching on ancestry.com. Believe it or not, there were TWO Elzie Kifers! One was born in 1894 and appears to be the one that married Dora Price in Marion County, Indiana. I noticed this with the help of military records - WWI enlistments.

|Squeak||RE: Calvin Thomas memorial|
Here it is:
You can see that Calvin was widowed at the time of death in 1923 (and was 82 years old), and that he was born in Tennessee in 1837 or 1838. There is a ton of really cool stuff in this book.
When I originally set out to photograph this cemetery, it was because it was elusive. The fact that I was actually able to find it AND get in, I was totally excited. But when I walked in, the first two things the ran through my mind was "photograph ALL stones, no matter how many or how long it takes today", and "There are well-known and/or famous people here and people that went through a lot of trials and tribulations. Many people have been "lost" to time and are wanting to be found". Sooooo, I photographed all 900+ stones in one afternoon.
I have had quite a few people contact me about people here, either that they were family that never knew what happened to the them and have been searching for them for years (and here they are at this cemetery), or someone is famous and they didn't know what happened to them after 1870 or whatever. Most people in the cemetery are only known by a first initial, middle initial, and last name, and many of those they don't even know the gender! That made me really sad, so I wanted to post EVERYONE since everyone used to be someone at one time or another.
I am glad I could help you and you will have fun reading some parts of that great book. Let me know if I can help you more in any way. I may be contacting the IOOF in the next couple of weeks because I would love to talk to them about this cemetery and the things that have come up because of it.
