Your welcome! You might consider requesting a new one at a later date, so that her inscription will be complete.

you are so welcome. Let me know if you want them transferred to your name. They are in a beautiful area. I visit there often. My grandparents are buried there and a few of my aunts. I have photographed entire sections and my dream is to get them all photographed, especially outlets 1-4 which are the original cemetery. It is so sad then they get beyond recognition. There are many sources that you can use to help, like the WPA grave website that went through Iowa Cemeteries in the 1930s and documented every grave. that helps.

I had a request from a woman the other day who wanted a number of her relatives recorded at Oakland. Turns out they had bought a 20 x 20 lot but NO STONES were ever put up. How sad is that!? I sent her a photograph of the bare lot where they are buried and she was very happy with that just to see where they are.

My ancestors came from England, settled in VA and then spread out to OK, KY, TN, MO, TX and IA. My dad and I have taken a 2 week trip weekly and photographed all of their graves. Some of them were in the middle of cow pastures or hidden in groves of trees. The best surprise was finding the very first Jett, James Jett buried in the Jett Cemetery in Mendota, Virginia. There were many Jetts buried there, and we found some old timers who had stories about them. I guess some of them had quite a few stills in operation!

Another ancestor founded the tiny town of Dickens, TX and was the first sheriff there. The jail is still operating and is the oldest operating jail in TX. Inside they had a square metal plate in the floor that they used to use to hang prisoners. It is of course not used today but not much else has changed about the jail, an old stone building in the middle of this tiny town

sorry to run on so much. I love learning about my ancestors and documenting graves. It is a wonderful way to honor those who have passed.

Thank you very much for the photos of my relatives in the Perry/Cumberland area. I
was able to enhance the photos and obtain
the tombstone information.

A Find A Grave memorial is only complete
(in my opinion) when there is a photo.

Thank you once again for volunteering your
time and talent!!

You are very welcome, Ritchie. The National cemeteries are very humbling to visit.
