You will get more volunteers to take the photos if you include the section and plot locations by calling the cemetery before making the request.
I am enjoying this hobby, but it can be very frustrating when you reach your "brick wall", as we all eventually do.

|VPaul||RE: Margaret Harrington|
Figured it out -- your talking about the Seminary woods in St. Francis, WI. As long as there is no snow it wouldn't be to hard to locate. I took Random pictures of the markers and added to Find A Grave if the picture was needed. So a walk through looking at the flat graves shouldn't be to hard to locate. The cemetery it self is located in the woods but does have paths going back in by the markers.

I'm not sure which Harrington you are referring to or what cemetery?

|Marie Ann Dubus Garrett||Sandham's and Benways|
Thank you so much for the pictures of the Sandham's memorials and letting me know about the Benway's. Beryl Benway is the daughter of Harry and Elma. Amd if I am correct, two of her children Eli and Kathy are buried near her.
I will contact the cemetery in the morning to confirm and get the address of the family in the cemetery. So, thank you for the heads up that they were nearby.
Elma's maiden name was Bashaw and then her daughter marries a Benway - close in phonics and easily mixed up. :)
I will leave you a message as soon as I get everyone straightened out. THANKS!
Thank you so much for taking the picture. I really appreciate the time, great picture. Thanks--Jan

Thanks for the better photo of J.B.'s wife's headstone. I take it that J.B. himself has no headstone - just buried next to his wife in an unmarked grave? I'll replace my photo of Irena's stone with yours, as yours is much more clear.
|Susan Montague Lundt||Thankyou!|
Thankyou for taking the time and effort to photograph the McHoes graves. I appreciate it.
|Great grand-daughter||RE: One of those mysteries...|
another one of those mysteries indeed!
I will certainly look at all my records to see if I can be of any help. What I can tell you is that Althea was married in 1918, she and her husband lived in Hempstead NY in 1920, they had a daughter named Althea Margaret who was born in 1919 and died in 1993. The Loper family was a large one. Althea had 8 siblings. One brother was Legrand Ellsworth Loper, b:1894 d:1957.He was among other things, a merchant marine and worked on board a variety of ships with his father Clarence who was a chief engineer. Legrand was an oiler. He was also a bit of a rogue...he was incarcerated several times. In 1930 he was an inmate at Suffolk County jail in Riverhead, NY (roll 1651 page 3a ED 100). In 1940 he was incarcerated in Sing Sing Prison in Ossining NY. Story is that he was an infamous "rum runner" and had a temper. I know he was married but there's no record of his wife. I am still investigating all of this. Please ask questions anytime and I will do my best to update you as I uncover things. Regards, Aine (Legrand and Althea's grand niece)
Thanks for locating Amelia's gravesite. How sad that she doesn't have a marker, but I'm grateful for your efforts and the photo you took.

|Mark Thompson||RE: Added marker|
Jack, I had not. I looked it up since you mentioned it. Is there an easy way to find out if nearby grave markers have been recorded?
|cathy w||Risser photos|
Thank you so much Jack for the photos of the Risser family. I sincerely appreciate the effort that you gave to this project. I am going to encourage Thorwald's grandchildren to purchase a proper stone for their grandfather. Until now they did not know where he was buried, you help was just what we needed.
