RE: Mary Ann Salter's Grave
I have MaryAnn's information as I do genealogy as well my concern was not being able to locate her at all in the cemetery. I understand it is an unmarked grave but cant even locate the numbers on the rows. I am assuming she is one of the unmarked graves in the far back of the cemetery.
Just want to note that her name is MaryAnn only one name with no middle name at all.
Thank you
Theresa Aguiar Court, MaryAnn's great grand daughter

RE: Year of birth?
Hi Von,
You have done a tremendous amount of work!! I have no tie to the burial, I just noticed the difference when I photographed the stones. I also see that I have a lot of stones that are not on FindaGrave……so maybe when I have the time, I can go though and add some of my pictures to Findagrave that I did for Billion Graves. A friend of mine wanted to do the cemetery for Billion Graves as it gives the GPS location and so I offered to help her. Wow, it was so full of weeds when we were there, the first week of May. My friend wrote to the parish and they said they would get to the weeds…I hope they do, it was such a shame.

Thanks for your quick reply!! Susan

Year of birth?
Hello….I was just wondering what you thought about the date of birth on this grave… certainly looks like 1878, but wonder if the marker might be wrong as I think much of this cemetery was done from a database of dates?? I submitted a change of date…but am not really sure which is right?

I recently worked in this cemetery for Billion Graves and looked at your work because I wondered about her name…then noticed the year difference.

I am confused. Where did you find the info on your Donald? The Donald I wrote up passed on 8/4/13. See his info in his memorial.

Mason Family in Iowa
I have left you suggestions on Wm and Aletha Mason and their children and her parents. In spite of the fact the Freets may be "certifiable"
Leafy is a nickname. My mother insisted her aunt's name was Leafy Fern!! It is Aletha Fern Freet and she married William Asher Mason. They had a son and a daughter. I hope this will clarify this family. I have also added photos of the gravestones. If you could please "tie" them all together, it would be nice.
