Baby of Charles S. Castle
Thank you for posting the headstone photos of Charles Sumner Castle (112993767) and family in the Forest Home Cemetery. I copied your photo of the Castle grouping to "Baby." If you would like to post your original photo, I will delete my "stolen" photo. Charles is my husband's second great uncle. Maureen

RE: RE #93010985 Maria Baumann Boesch, et al
Dear Dave,
Thank you for your response. Actually, I believe my input was the part of the inscription that was not yet on the page: "Here rest in God." And, yes, like a lot of genealogy freaks, I also transcribe the inscriptions exactly as the type is on the stones. But I don't expend time just changing upper and lower case to all caps if there is no additional data that I can offer at the time. So, in actuality, the input WAS accepted.
So, I have been inputting the epitaphs, quotes or blessings from the stones as I go because I think that it is of interest what each person choose for their inscription. And, Find A Grave has that category to be filled in should the info be available.

I very much like Oscar Wilde's: Pardon me for not getting up.

I have just received other declines of the same nature; the inscriptions are right there to be seen in the photos, obviously accurate, yet the managers do not flesh out their memorials. I throw up my hands!
Again, your communication is very much appreciated.
All the best,
