RE: Burns
I talked to Diane and she had a binder comparing records with a physical survey of the cemetery that shows she is there but it's unknown where.

So at least there's an answer for her gr-gr-grandson; just no headstone to photograph.

Thanks again for your help.

RE: Burns
Haha! I knew what you meant by nothing among the acorns.

Thanks for checking. She does have a memorial page in the Vacaville cemetery and it has a scanned copy of the obituary that I think you're referencing.

I could just go over and wander the old section to see if I can find her. At least it narrows it down to a smaller area.

I won't get over there for a few days so let me know if you uncover anything else.

Thanks again,

Delilah Cummins Burns
You mentioned in an earlier message that you have a bunch of photos 'squirreled away' for winter. Have you, by any chance, run across Delilah at the Vacaville Cemetery?

There was a photo request for her, the obituary on her page says she was buried in the Vacaville cemetery, but she is not in their database. I know from my own personal experience that obituaries aren't always accurate (a great uncle's said he was buried in Eureka, CA, but he's actually in Cokeville, Wyoming).

Anyway, I thought it might not hurt to check with you. Her great grandson created her memorial and requested the photo.

RE: Joseph Thompson
That would be amazing since all I know is that his father's name was Richard. From what I was told growing up dad's parents were killed in an accident when he was about 3 years old. He was taken in by a friend of the family whose name was Blanche Jacobs. She lived at 222 N Addison St, Richmond VA.

RE: You are welcome
My father was SSgt Joseph B Thompson 5/7/19 - 6/7/66. No other family members as he was an orphan from North Carolina.

Thank you
I want to thank you for the photo of my dad's gravestone. I am in Florida and unable to visit California very often so this photo is comforting to me. It is very kind of you to do this service for families of the deceased.

Arthur Greenman
Thanks for the plot info. for Arthur. I was over there to fulfill a photo request in Block 20 and his headstone caught my eye as I turned to walk back to my car. I decided to take a picture and when I got home, discovered he need a memorial page.

Thanks for the photo! I am having fits with the Long's - I know they were Vacaville pioneers but I can't get them all straight. Thanks for helping, LG
