RE: jennie l wilson
You do not have to do that, I was just adding family info to it so in the event someone was looking it would help out

RE: 131542791
Hey Jill,
:) You are absolutely not sounding "mean". Yes, I've done the same thing before, even with photos. I have several cemeteries like that... I know them so well that they are catalogued in my mind. I've memorized the rows and plots and family relations...... which was why I wanted to know. That way there would be no question. I absolutely NEVER mind deleting anything I've done in error. My biggest thing is that I keep records on absolutely everything. I'd rather have the information in an edit, because it's easier to file and retrieve. If I don't have some filed record (because I'm old and forgetful) I'm liable to run across it again, wonder why I didn't make a memorial and create it yet again!!
Thank you so much for your reply. Your request to delete will be taken care of today.
Many thanks for pointing out the error.

Hey Jill,
I ran across this obit while posting some for my relatives. Below, in it's entirity is the article from Your Houston News, Nov. 2011


Services for Roy Clayton Modesett, 89, were held on Thursday, December
5, 2002, at Pace-Stancil/Probst Chapel, with the Interment followed at
Ryan Cemetery in Cleveland.

Modesett was born February 13, 1913, and died on December 3, 2002.

Survivors include wife, Ellen Modesett; Step Son, Winston Gardner and
wife Brenda; Six Grandchildren and Eleven Great-Grandchildren."

I do NOT dispute that the obit could quite possibly be in error, but would you confirm that you know the location to be in another cemetery by your own viewing? I myself have posted graves in the wrong cemetery when I was photographing 200 -300 in a day :).
Please confirm and submit by edit and I will delete it immediately. If I do it without an edit, I lose the information trail. I'm sure you understand.
Thank you so very much,

Hello again Jill,

Thank you! As soon as I find David King I will send the connection. I appreciate you changing her last name to reflect her parents. Been searching for her for quite some time and you found her!

Thanks again,
Rob Blew (YankeeGraver)

RE: 7184925
Hi Jill, I had put a note on my request and was hoping someone would take a better photo of it. When I take photo's for others, I try and cut away the grass and sweep the dirt off of it. I certainly don't want to offend the person who took the original photo, but would love to have a better copy. Thanks, Mary

Re Memorial 17346796
Thank you for removing the note photo from Cora Channel Polvadore's memorial. Believe Cora is buried next to her husband Willie Donald "Jack" Polvadore memorial 53770467. His headstone photo was taken by someone else. It appears to be a dual stone so that person may have the photo for Cora as well. Will ask them. I appreciate all your help with this. Thanks again.

Memorial 17346796
Cora Channel Polvadore had a duplicate memorial 53770453 which has been removed. Her existing memorial 17346796 has been updated with Cora's correct cemetery info of Peebles Cemetery. The note photo on her remaining memorial was added by you. Am hoping you took a photo of Cora's headstone as well. If so, would very much appreciate your adding it to this remaining memorial & removing your note photo. Thanks in advance for all your help.
