RE: Elvira Snow
FYI, I also located the photo of the headstone for Genelee Snow, corrected the spelling of her name and noted additional information in her memorial #47089596.
Can't seem to get the wrong memorial removed/merged (it has her name misspelled). Oh well.

I noticed that John did not have a memorial so I created one - http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=147163914 - would you mind attaching the picture you loaded to his wife's memorial to his? Or if you'd rather I could do it for you?

Ralph

her memorial is http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=101172860

RE: Mattie Tingley
Thank you , Ben! Just went and created a memorial for him. Learned that they named their next son Harold also, but haven't found where he is buried yet.

In hopes of making it easier for you - Forest City Cemetery, S Portland, he is # 147161539

Thanks again! Much appreciated. I have strong ties to the Portland area, but living in MN makes it a challenge. I have lots of relatives buried in Forest City [and finding more and more] including my father.

My mother and I went on a docent tour of Evergreen last summer and it was great. Are there any tours for Eastern?

Thank you
Thank you so much for taking the picture of the resting place of my great grandfather. Sad to know that there is no marker for him, but content to see where he is. It had been an unknown for many years for our family.

Take care!

Hi,

Thank you for your photo.

I am looking for Frank Merton Drinkwater b. 1866
His wife was Maria Lincoln Stackpole b. 1865

I believe they lived in Durham, Androscoggin County. Maine.

Thanks again,

Gerald
