Do not put genealogical info into flowers. The admins will remove them. Submit info to the respective memorial managers

I have transferred her memorial to you; you may want to update her information directly as the new manager, and leave a simpler replacement flower.
Regards, John

RE: Pike city Cemetery
You're welcome! It's a very old cemetery, I enjoy searching all the old markers for the right one :)

Friars in Upper Yorktown
Hi Ann,

No, I didn't canvas the entire cemetery. Sometimes I just run across a cemetery and take a few pictures since I'm never sure if it has already been done.

With the help of my husband we've done 2 or 3 entire small cemeteries. We've also taken quite a few random photos in large cemeteries.

I started doing this as a "pay it forward" in memory of a very dear soul in Illinois that took pictures of my family's burial sites for me out of the kindness of her heart.

I live on the gulf coast of Texas near Corpus Christi. We used to drive up to Austin on a regular basis to visit our daughter and this is how we ran across the Upper Yorktown Cemetery. If there is anything that I could help you with in the same area, let me know.

Hi Ann,

There really is nothing you have to do. I will go ahead and make the changes that you requested. I will change the memorials to you. That way if any other relatives are researching these family of yours through Find A Grave they can contact you to compare research. It is a great tool for working on your family tree.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Mary Beth

I have 3 memorials for Friar in the Upper Yorktown Cemetery in Yorktown, Tx. I would be glad to transfer these memorials to your care. I am not related and would be glad that they are with family.
