I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

RE: Mary Ardery

I've walked section #48 many times over the last few years. It's about 8+ Acres of flat headstones on a slight hillside. Without a plot location it would impossible to find the marker you would be looking for by walking over all of the markers there. Please call the cemetery office 510.658.2588. They should be able to give you more information. Then you can re-post your request and I'll try and take it from there.

RE: William Wetmore
Thanks for the correction. This family is fairly distantly related, but yes I will take them over for you, until a closer relation can be found.

Wondering if you have any connection to who oversees this Mulberry Grove Cemetery in IL. My great grand uncle is buried there, and I will be passing a few miles from there on my way out of state. Would like to visit, but don't have a lot of time to search for the grave.

tangled roots
RE: Minnie
That would be fine to transfer the memorials to me. I am new at this, so let me know what I need to do.
I am descended from 3 lines from Jeffrey Ferris. I indeed have tangled roots.
