Iry and Cinthelia Taylor's memorials
Thank you so much for taking the time to take and place the photo's for Iry and Cinthelia Taylor's memorial. I know from experience that sometimes it takes a great deal of hunting to find a persons gravestone. Thanks again. Susan

RE: Clacks
Recently there was a cleanup effort made in the older part of this cemetery. When I arrived there this afternoon, the work had been done (tall grass and weeds cut, brush cleared, etc.). This portion of the cemetery is now visually wide open. It is easier to see and get to the various graves. The newer portion of the cemetery has lawns, etc. that are easier to take care of. No, I was not part of the cleanup efforts. Thanks.

Leora Rountree

Thank you for the grave marker photos and the photo of Leora and Charles.

This makes Find a Grave a superior website for people to view the markers and photos of family members.

I have one of Leora with her brother and another with my mother and aunts that I would like to put on. Rearrange the photos in whatever order you see fit.

Thank you so much for the photos of their headstones. I really appreciate it.

Your most welcome Kurt. Yes, it was a lovely day there today and it's a good time of year to get the nice green color in the photograph. I expected to stay 5 minutes and ended up talking to people there and stayed 90 minutes.

FYI, I also talked to the cemetery supervisor about the location, and verified no marker thru the Mendocino County historical society - triple-checked.
