Bio and Links
Bio Photo Any memorial page I have created I have a picture of the headstone.

If you want a photo officially request one, don't bury your request in a spouse or another family members photo request.

Too many volunteers are now asking for other volunteers to do their research, please try and do your own on your time.

I take responsibility ONLY for the information obtained from the headstone unless otherwise specified by me. There are very few exceptions.

Due to the changes and procedures for adding addition information it is very time consuming to include the source. Find A Grave DOES NOT provide a way to show where the information comes from.

In light of these changes and the automated edit system, which makes it almost impossible to deny acceptance of changes and addition, I have been transferring all memorial pages to those wishing to make edits. This too has become too time consuming.

Therefore, in order to include the changes whether the information is CORRECT OR NOT I feel I am being forced to accept all edits. I hate this part because I have had quite a few people send edits only to resend two or three times in order to make corrections.

If you find errors send corrections but do not, I repeat DO NOT ask me about the information posted or hold me responsible for the additions. This goes against all genealogical best practices, but the only other solution would be to take down all the memorials and pictures I have posted.

If you find an error,double listing or double picture please let me know so I can correct the problem.

I have in the past used a picture of the cemetery gate/sign with "Office couldn't locate a burial for this person" imprinted on it. If you get this posting and do find a picture of you persons tombstone, let me know and I will remove it.

Thanks again for all your work and for transferring my great-grandfather's memorial tome. It is much appreciated.

thanks- no marker I see- which means probably no marker for his wife if she is buried there with him. Think I'll write to the cemetery to at see if she is there.

Thank you so much for the photo. I always appreciate the time taken from Find A Grave members to help others they don't even know. It means so much to be able to connect this way. Regards, Jody

RE: Shooting an unmarked grave
The burial is for Ida Preston Smith's husband, George F. Smith. Ida is another child of Nehemial and Leah. George's number is 126072002 and he's in Lake View also.

RE: Charles H. Preston
Thanks for finding Charles. I looked in Ancestry to find out something about the other couples and found the Booths. Couldn't find the McIntyres, there were too many and none in Seattle at least in 1900. No connection with John Booth but Mary Hill
Booth was born in New Brunswick (Maine, New Brunswick) The Preston Family were in Washington County Maine from 1780 or earlier until the present. This is right on the border with New Brunswick. Quite a few from that area went to Washington State right after the CW. Charles H. Preston and his brothers all came as young men with their father Nehemiah after their mother, Leah Whitney Preston died in 1875 in Maine. So I don't think they were related but may have known each other.

RE: Louis Bosqui 5236321
Thank you for clearing that up. I didn't realize that there wasn't a headstone. I have been searching for a death certificate and haven't been able to find one - yet. Was the information about him found in cemetery records? I will continue researching him.

Thank you again for getting the photo so promptly.

Photo request
I requested a photo of the tombstone of Louis Bosqui. You sent the photo that has been posted on Find-a-Grave for quite a while - a picture of the cemetery. If you are able to get a photo of the actual inscription, I would be very appreciative.

Shooting unmarked graves
I just received a photo request fulfillment with a technique used that I will use in the future. The gentleman I asked for was in the cemetery inventory but didn't have a tombstone. I gave the number of the man's wife but in this case it was not as much help as you would think. She was buried in the family plot with her parents and siblings. Evidently there wasn't room for him because he was on the outskirts of the big cemetery. Anyway the photographer used a flag stuck in the ground to mark where the burial was then took a couple of long panned shots of the area. I don't know if you find this as interesting as I do but I thought I'd throw it out there.
