Potter at Riverside Cemetery Hi Geraldine, I was just looking at your photo of 3 markers on Clara Belle (Shannon) Potter's memorial page. Hers is on the right and husband Richard's is in the middle. I'm pretty sure that the one on the left is his 2nd wife Mary Madeline's - maiden name unknown. She died in July 1912, age 41 and the dates appear to be 1869-1912. If you could check and take a photo the next time you go to Riverside I would greatly appreciate it. My grandmother Katie (Shepherd) Dreher was Richard's 3rd wife. She's buried at Shepherd Cemetery in Vigo Co. with my grandfather. Thanks in advance, Nancy Brant

120105256 - Natale Arrola Geraldine, I believe this MAY be the grave of Natale Airola, who died 26 Mar 1927... HE was an Italian immigrant. Looking to see if you can really tell the death year on your photo. I can not. Or if you know where I can find a death notice/obit/mention? Thanks! Caroline
Thank You Miss Barnett, I have looked through many graves today doing research and I noticed not many people leave flowers and then I came to my Moms. A tear came to my eyes when I seen that someone I've never met left her a flower. Thank you for such a pretty gift.........Alice Lone
RE: Rev War Virtual Cem. What a thoughtful message. Please forgive my tardy reply. My sister has taken a new job and has not been able to Christmas shop for her grandkids, so I have had all the fun! (I don't have kids / grandkids.) The best part: I can send everything straight to her house, so it doesn't come to mine. A couple of years ago, I brought home presents I had bought for my grandnieces and grandnephews - croquet set, classic car set, etc. Wayne took one look at those things and told me they were not leaving our house. So I had to go out and buy another croquet set and then matchbox cars since the classic car set was one of a kind. You know, we have had more fun with the croquet set Wayne made me keep - we have lots of company and they always ask if they can play croquet. Of course, we don't use the regulation course - Wayne takes delight in making it more like an obstacle course, sending people into the woods and creek, so it's very challenging.
Transfer of Adam Dinsmore memorial I thank you so very much for the transfer of this memorial to my care. Adam Dinsmore was my 3g-grandfather. Also a huge thank you for creating this memorial. It is researchers such as you that those of us that cannot get to areas where our ancestors lived enable links to be made. Your efforts and time in this matter are so much appreciated.
