I try to use the best possible photo on memorials because I know how important it is to be able to read all the text on the marker.
Find A Grave allows 5 free spaces for photos on each memorial page, so I try not to upload more than 2-3 cemetery photos. If you need more room for photos, please contact me and ask me to remove a photo so you have more room.
My Photos: If anyone would like to use any of my grave marker photos, please contact me for permission.
Transfering Memorials: For those that are not of my family, please contact me, and include your member name & number, the name on the memorial and memorial number.
Please Note: The last residence on the Social Security Death Index is not always where the person died, but where the last benefit check was sent.

Thank you for your quick replay Jan. I will correct the photo for Nancy V Hudson Ferris.
All the best,
|MarshaHale||William H Ferris & Nancy V Hudson Ferris|
I would like permission to use the photos of the gravesites of my great great grandfather William H Ferris & his wife Nancy V. Hudson. This would be for my family site at Ancestry.com. You would be given full credit for the photos. Thank you for all of your work preserving the memory of our ancestors.

Thank you for the note I have added to the memorial her burial location and have linked to a memorial in Oregon (Find A Grave Memorial# 171079077). She does have a stone that is "unfinished" in Elmwood and I do try and make a point to look up unfinished stones that are older than 100 years to establish the date of death. The historian at Elmwood is always very helpful and can be contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
is you specific question about what is in the cemetery.
Thank you for straightening this out.
Nathlie M Hobbs, 155791835
I'm doing a photo project at Lincoln Memorial Park mausoleum, in Portland, Oregon. I found a crypt with the following:
Nathlie M. Hobbs
After finding the memorial you created for Nathlie, in Elwood Cemetery, I called the cemetery office, here in Portland, and asked them to verify that Nathlie was actually at Lincoln. Their reply was that Nathlie Hobbs was in their mausoleum, in the Dahlia Corridor, crypt #286. They do not show her remains were sent to Tennessee, and that her daughter, Thelma, was the purchaser.
The marker photo you have on the memorial page doesn't seem to have a year of death. I believe Nathlie's name was added to the marker at the time her husband died, in 1942, but that she moved to Oregon to be near her daughter. The Oregonian newspaper said she was the mother of Thelma Hobbs, and that her interment was to be at Lincoln Memorial mausoleum.
I believe the family didn't want to stand the expense of sending Nathlie's remains back to Tennessee, so they placed her in Lincoln Memorial.
Would you please contact the office at the Elmwood Cemetery and verify if Nathlie's remains were actually placed in their cemetery or not? Please let me know what you find out.

They are fine thanks for adding them. He was a distant cousin, his mother was a Norvell.

I love them, thanks. Could you send me a full size photo of the marker without cropping? email@example.com
|Bryan Anderson||RE: Albert Scharf, 112385139|
No problem. If it's used in the future, I'll let you know when and where.
|Bryan Anderson||Albert Scharf|
I am researching my grandfather's WWI army unit history, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. As you can see from Albert Scharf's gravestone, he too was a member of this unit. My grandfather, Gunder Anderson, was severely wounded on 9/14/1918 and Albert Scharf died of Accident or Other Causes according to The History of the 89th Division.
I'm not sure where I'm headed with my project, but I want to think I'll eventually publish something. Would it be permissible to use your photograph of Albert Scharf's gravestone in future publications?

Sorry for the edit I submitted; which was declined with good reason here is the correct information:
Enlisted in the World War II Army 14 Mar 1942 in Presedio of Montery, California. He lived in Clackamas Co., Oregon at that time and was single without dependents.
Funeral of Lester Rivers.
The body of Lester Rivers who died at Fort Stevens, Wash., was shipped to his home at Eagle Creek, and the funeral took place there on Sunday. He was the son o f Mr. and Mrs. James Rivers of Eagle Creek and twenty-five years old at the time of his death which resulted from the Spanish influenza. The services were held in the Eagle Creek Church, a minister from Gresham conducting them. The church was banked with floral offerings and the casket draped with a large flag. The internment was in Forester cemetry where the mortal remains of this soldier will rest until the sounding of the reveille on the day of the 'Great Awakening'. He leaves a widow and baby, besides a father, mother and a brother. The bereaved relatives have the sympathy of his country. Undertaker L. A. Chapman had charge of all arrangements which he carried out in his usual sympathetic and efficient manner.
