Hi Bill, I agree the dates on the stone and the dates on her death cert. don't match. Do you know which one is correct? Lanny Crawley

RE: Walton Titus

I was happy to do it for you. Desert Memorial Park is a very nice cemetery here in the Palm Springs area. Walton Titus, being quite accomplished himself, is certainly in good company here surrounded by the final resting spots of Frank Sinatra, Sonny Bono, William Powell, Busby Berkeley, Betty Hutton and many more.

I have been visiting, documenting and photographing cemeteries since the 1980's and i have never seen a cemetery as well laid out and well marked as Desert Memorial Park. Once you are given a location section and grave #, you can and will find the plot you are looking for in 5 minutes. Every section is at the most 4 or 5 rows and there are many number markers in the ground in each section so you know exactly which row to go to quickly. If you do ever make it to CA and to Desert Memorial Park, you will find Walton Titus in no time!

All the best to you. ~ Tom

RE: Walton Titus

Hi Bill,

I have added a couple of additional photos of Walton Titus' grave in its surroundings as you requested.

RE: Walton Titus

Hi Bill,

So sorry. I didn't see anything about photographing the surroundings. Not a problem. I will go back and take additional photos.

Thanks for emailing me.

I have a question about Elma Jones Craig. Are you a family member with personal knowledge of this name?

RE: Binnie
I'll talk to them about it this week. If they tell me that there are supposed to be markers other than the large upright, I will see what I can do about having them uncovered. I'll be getting back to you.

Robin left me a message and she is working on looking for her transcription of the cemetery in Iowa. The stone she may have seen had to have been a cenotaph, because Inglewood confirmed that Binnie is buried here in the same plot (Sequoia 405) as her husband.

Did you ever hear back from Inglewood as to the existence of flat markers that might be buried? I was going to ask but I forgot. So I wondered if you called them.

RE: Sewards @ Inglewood
Well, I only had to brush the dust off of Binnie's marker, nothing else was necessary. I think it only says "Seward" on the other side of the upright monument. I only photographed the front because as it is, I took two views of it, and thought it would just take up photo space if I put the view of the back. If you want one, I can put it on my list for next visit.

As far as there being markers that are covered up, I checked with a 6-inch trowel all around the upright and could not feel anything. If they have buried markers, they are more than 6 inches deep. If you want to call them to confirm the existence of markers, I won't be offended at all if you get back to me about it. If there are buried markers, I will need to place a work order to have them uncovered, and it would take a week or so to go back and get new photos.

So if you call them, please let me know what they say. Let them know that you have a photo of the upright, but are wondering about the individual markers. They will have to pull the cardex because the computerized record may only say "yes" to a marker, but that may be in reference to the upright, so please be specific and ask about flat, individual markers. Since Frederick was a Civil War soldier, he should have a military marker! I'm finding out that not all soldiers end up with one.

I will look forward to receiving more information from you.

Best regards,

PS - If we never hear back from Robin Cleland, I will just keep the memorial for Binnie as is.

Sewards @ Inglewood
Hello. I am about to fulfill your photo requests and just wanted you to know that there is only an upright monument for Frederick and Emma Seward, no individual headstones, so I am putting only a photo of the monument on their memorials.

Also, Binnie does have a marker and I believe she is buried here. The CA Death index shows that she died in Los Angeles County.

If there is a marker for her in New York, I believe that memorial should be designated as a cenotaph. However, her New York memorial does not have a photo of a headstone. I have put in a request to the manager of that memorial to send some kind of proof. If it turns out she is buried in New York, then the memorial I created can be designated as a cenotaph. There will be no need to delete it, unless there is no existing marker at the New York cemetery. If the person who created that memorial just assumed she was buried there, but had no proof, then that original memorial can be changed to reflect the location in Inglewood. We'll have to wait and hear back from that person.

Best regards,
