Escur Rogers photo
Thank you so much for the photo of Escur Rogers' marker. His son, Escur Jr. died in 1918 in Hutchinson from scarlet fever 2 months before his 2nd birthday. (I had stumbled upon his obituary while looking for something else). I'm happy he's now connected to his parents!

Thanks for your time and efforts!

Could I copy and paste the marker on 90778785 to his wife's page at 90778808? Thank you again for taking the picture

Thank you!
Greatly appreciated that you shared the picture of Hilma Almgren! Her maiden name was Johnson and her entire family is buried in Sunset Cemetery.

RE: Spilman plot
Interesting!! I can see how some smaller markers or broken stones can get buried.

When people are surprised there are 13K burials in Sunset, I usually remind them of the unmarked and the many markers with numerous names.

Do I have your permission to cut and paste the photo of the Spilman plot onto the other Spilman memorials I manage?

Spilman plot
Thank you for photographing the location, even though no marker is visible. I'm surprised at the number of unmarked graves at Sunset. I wonder if that's usual for cemeteries this size...

RE: Thanks again!
Sure thing. The last list was pretty long, but I can sure be more specific. I have been going through your volunteer photo list and checking "my" memorials for any information I needed to change. I noticed there were several with no marker and you photographed the locations, which I REALLY appreciate! And thanks for the tip!
