RE: What a Gal
You're too funny ~ I'll be at this for a while yet as you've entered a bunch of great memorials with photos. They just need some research to find dates etc. but I'm going as fast as I can - LOL

As for the other 'contributors'... I follow-up pretty well and contact FindAGrave Admin when my edits are not being attended to.

Just so you know - many of the burials at Custer are from other Forts that, when they were abandoned, the Army moved the remains, eventually winding up at Custer. So many descendants are not aware of this fact but it can be shown thru research - it just takes some work.

Again, thanks for all the work you're doing ~

I just re-read my message... actually there are eight sections (not 6) but I think you get what I meant. All you need to do is put the section letter, a space and then marker number in the 'Plot/GPS' section.

I must tell you ~ I was so upset with the snowstorm as that was the main purpose of our trip to Montana. My husband's 2Xgreat grandfather who died at Ft. Abercrombie in 1863 eventually ended up buried there after TWO dis-interments then re-interments. And, like you, I was stunned with the lack of information that is NOT included on these memorials. I believe that most of those I entered are as complete as they are going to get without information from a direct family member.

Anyway - please check your 'Edit' tab and email as I've been sending you lots of updates that need to be done.

Custer National Cemetery Memorials
Thanks so much for taking the photos and entering memorials for those interred at Custer National Cemetery in Montana. While on our way to the cemetery last May 7th, we were stopped in Hardin by a severe snow storm. Not being very brave, we turned around and headed back to Butte as quickly as we could.

Anyway, I want to let you know that you will be receiving many Edit/SAC and additional information addition requests from me regarding burials there. I have access to the U.S. National Cemetery Interment Control Forms, 1928-1962 as well as the interment record books for several of the Forts that removed their burials and re-interred them in Custer National which are just two of my sources.

I also wanted to let you know that the 'Headstone' numbers you are entering are actually plot identifiers. There are six sections in this cemetery that are lettered A thru H. Then each plot is numbered with the number being engraved/etched on most of the markers. Example: A 435 is Charles Fertile while C 435 is Raymond Breats. Therefore, the number alone is not sufficient to locate each burial.

Again, I want to thank you for all the work you're doing on this cemetery and look forward to helping you complete your memorials. Please send me a message if you have any questions regarding the information I am sending you.

Oakwood Cemetery Richmond, Va.
Hi Chuck thanks you for getting the pictures of the headstones and dates for me. Oakwood is a city own cemetery. City of Richmond has more problems than taking care of any of it's cemeteries. There are only six people there to cut all that grass and they also have to do all the funerals. They get behind very quickly. They need over 12 people to do the job but the city is slow to hire. They use inmates to weed around the headstones. There are over 75,000 people buried in Oakwood. If you have the maps of the cemetery I'm the person who made them. If you go inside the office they will give you maps of the cemetery if they aren't to busy.

Hello! It is nice to hear from you :-) I am Roxanna, daughter of Valerie Costello. My Grandpa is John Martin Costello, son of Lillian and Patrick Jay. I fixed the requested information, as it was my error. I do have the original Obit for Patrick Jay if you would like me to email or postal mail you a copy. As for Lillian I only had that one picture which belonged to my late Grandpa John. I would love to keep in contact with you if that is okay. I am sure my mother Valerie would as well. You can email me or find me on Facebook. :-) I hope to hear from you soon.
