Lancaster Cemetery- Edwin/Matilda Hubbard
Could you add the photo you too of Edwin Adam Hubard's marker to his wife Matilda's memorial. Her name appears on the marker and I have created a memorial for her and linked it to her husband.
Edwin is #143979947

RE: Lester Ashley
Thank you for the message. Lester is my uncle and the memorial was transferred to me. I didn't add the 2nd memorial of Lester. I Have been off find a grave for awhile due to 4 separate surgeries. Three of them being eye surgeries. I'll try to correct the problem.
Again thank you

I can not thank you enough for taking the time out of your life to give me such a wonderful gift. I am a person you don't even know and you have done such a wonderful thing. My grand mother passed when I was very young and I had already moved out of state when my grandfather passed. I appreciate this more then I can express and I am very thankful that there are people in the world such as yourself. Thank you again for your kindness.

Thanks very much, Dayle, for taking the picture of the grave of Nohemi Ingram. Wow, you were very quick, since I only barely posted the request yesterday. Your service is very much appreciated, and my best wishes to you.

Iva Pearl Snider Warren
Hello my own mother Yvonne Mary "Bonnie" Burnett (30 May 1934-1 Dec 1992) is buried in an "Aykroyd" plot in Sydenham Cemetery. Iva Pearl Snider is my 3rd cousin twice removed. Iva Pearl was the daughter of Effie Jane Burnett (24 Jun 1888- ) and Arnold Snider (Abt. 1881- ).

Iva Pearl's grandparents were John Alma Burnett (19 Sep 1853- ) & Nancy Ann Albertson (12 Nov 1870-5 Aug 1933). Her great-grandparents were John Nelson Burnett & Jane ?.

John Nelson Burnett (1798- ) & Thomas Wellington Burnett were brothers and sons of John Burnett (16 Feb 1763-1836) and Elizabeth Van Order (Oct 1765-Aug 1835).

Not sure why you list a "Warren" in your entry, I only have info recorded for William Leonard Smith (1902-1949) and record of another spouse here.

Thanks for your time,


PS Yes I am also related to Blues brother "Jake" Dan Aykroyd the actor and of course have relatives still living in Joliet Illinois!!!

On this California Grave, I was not aware that it was unmarked. Please accept my apology for sending you on an assignment that yielded negative results. I do appreciate your time and trouble, and I hope to get this corrected here in the near future.

Thank You again,
