I thanked you for finding out the information Eleanor's husband, Calvin Leslie Lynham's grave being unmarked, but I failed to thank you for the fabulous photo of Eleanor's tombstone. Thank you!

|Krista AQ Thompson||Suggested corrections|
Hi, Dayle! You sent me some suggested corrections, and I've lost them. Not the correction for Grace Amanda Burton (I got that one, thank you!), but I was sure there were others, and now they're missing from my mailbox. Am I remembering wrong? If so, ignore me, I'm having a hard life. If I'm right, please resend if you can. I'd appreciate it. Also, if it's possible to include a citation for newspaper clippings, I'd be very grateful, saves me having to look them up.
Thank you so much for all you do!

I am researching my Eppley family and have recently requested the death certificate for Minnie M. Eppley Kittron, buried at Congressional Cemetery with her Eppley family. Her date of death was 21 May 1891 or 1892. No death certificate was found at the D.C. Dept of Health for Ms. Kittron. I have a copy of her death notice, however now I am unsure if she died in D.C., in MD or another state. I am hoping you have additional information in her family file that may assist me in locating her death certificate.
You may contact me using firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your help.

Many thanks for recently adding excellent grave marker photos to my memorial pages for Marian A. "Mattie" Skidmore and Emma Skidmore Gross, and for correcting the latter’s plot location. All very much appreciated!

Thanks for attempting to get a picture of the headstone of Sidney Long. I appreciate your effort.
|Krista AQ Thompson||Thomas and Mary Kelly at Congressional|
Hi, Dayle! You mention their child--are you referring to the unnamed Kelly, same "moved from Methodist" date, at Range 17, Site 52c? If so, I don't believe they have a Find a Grave memorial. If they do, I'm missing it. Let me know if there is one or if I should create one.

|Krista AQ Thompson||Rev. John Elliott # 122128773|
Hi! Congressional Records have this gentleman as "Elliott" not "Elliot." Please see following, from Congressional's site:
Rev. John W. Elliott
Date of Death: 3/12/1868
Also, if you look closely at the stone, you will see the two bolt holes and faint outline of the missing second "t" from the raised lettering atop the stone.
Thank you for having an eye out, hope this clears it up!

Thank you so much for the photo of Mr Henshaw's marker. I didn't realize that one had been added until today. THANKS!!!!
