When I put in the name of the cemtery that was listed in his obit that name came up linked to this cemetery. No other page came up for it.

Thank you so very much for her transfer.

Somehow, I didn't get a notice that she had been transferred to me. I was working on the family and had decided to link her to her family in the Bios. of the ones I manage.

It was quite a pleasant surprise to find she was mine.

Thanks again for your kindness.

Photo of Elizabeth Kerley
On the memorial page of Elizabeth Kerley you added a photo. This is a duplicate memorial page. Would you please removed your photo and add it to the older memorial page? Then I will contact the person and have them delete their newer memorial page.

The older memorial page belongs to Ellen Kerley Manuel. I am doing her edits for her while she is ill.

Newer memorial page with your photo:

Older memorial page that needs your photo:
There is already a photo posted but yours is so much better.
Thank you very much!!
