I absolutely love this site! I enjoy exploring and finding the different cemeteries and sometimes it can be a real challenge! I live in west-central Louisiana near the oldest city in Louisiana (Natchitoches) and the Texas border. When I go grave hunting I always try to take the best photo I can because I know that is what I would want. I don't mind taking a little extra time cleaning up the area if necessary. Most of the cemeteries around me seem to be very well maintained. I give permission for all those that I take photos for to use my photos in other areas and if you would like the higher resolution photos, just email me and ask. I would be more than happy to send them to you! My own genealogy lines are these names - Houghton, Wobig, Hovland, Zemke, Skindingsrud, Fuglien, Scheuneman which are based in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota. My husband's line consists of these names - Johnson, Hollis, Collins, Neal, Nugent, Stegall, Williams, Bennett, Baldridge, Cox, Evans, Buckelew or maybe Buckliew which seem to be based in Louisiana, Arkansas, Virginia and North Carolina. If you have information on any of these lines, please contact me at email@example.com because I would love to talk with you!
You added a photo to her memorial indicating just the foundation for the tombstone remained.
I added her husband to her memorial...he died over 30 years before her. Her grave was by his father. But without the death certificate with location of burial, I did not know whether to list him in the same cemetery. But I think he is buried there as per this:

15 19 Bertha Bell Herridge Apr 6 1892 Jun 6 1960 b/w Calvin M.
Note: Unknown between Calvin ahd his wife Bertha.
Any further info would be very much appreciated. Calvin Monroe Herridge is the son of my great grandfather's brother, Calvin Watson Herridge. They had a younger brother, James Monroe Herridge who died in the Civil War so expect that is where Calvin Monroe Herridge got his name.

Photos Debby, I have added more of your photos to my family tree on Ancestry giving you credit. But I am so impressed with the clarity of the photos. What camera do you use? It's almost like you can touch the stone on some of them. Pat
