RE: re: Virginia Crosby
I found a susan crosbie and a virginia (something else). I can check the dates. I walked it twice, but I could have still missed it. You could try calling the cemetery and asking them if they could take a photo for your family tree and email it to you. donna

re: Virginia Crosby
Could she be buried with a first husband under another headstone name?

Also I saw the name Crosbie.

I have walked that section twice, but don't see her myself..but I didn't have a map either..

There is now a different photo for Kathryn Conner gravestone. She is buried with parents. Took 3 visits to find this cause I was looking for a "Conner" headstone and it was NOT. :) It was with the stone marked MERRIN and BOWMAN

RE: Bowers in Inglewood
Yes, I will transfer. Although I prefer the transfer guidelines (because of problems I've had in the past) when I've fulfilled a photo request, I usually handle it differently. I used to get requests from people who just wanted all memorials with the same surname, etc. and I just had to draw the line somewhere! One person (white) was requesting someone I knew to be black and when I confronted her about it, she admitted she just wanted to keep all the names "together".

One thing I've learned when I am told that a grave is unmarked: look for a stone anyway. At least 4 times I have gone out to a site, expecting no headstone and found one was actually there. Twice at Roosevelt Memorial Park and twice at Inglewood. Sometimes people purchase the stone from a vendor that is not affiliated with the cemetery. Many years ago, an outside contractor may have been the one doing the stone setting. More recently, however, cemeteries (at least around here) insist on doing it themselves and charging a 'setting fee'. So, some of the older ones may have been listed in the record as not having a headstone.

Also, in my opinion, what you can do if told there is no stone is to go ahead and create a memorial and put in the 'note' section that there is no stone. I think most of us feel it is appropriate to get a photo of the area, so that you still get to see where the person is buried. Just my thoughts on this, of course!

I am glad my work was helpful to you. If I can be of further assistance, just let me know.

Best regards,
Bonnie

Bowers in Inglewood
Hello! There is one more Bowers in Crescent Plot, lot 179: Claude M. Bowers. I created a memorial for him. I included an area photo for all of them, explaining where they are all buried.

I hope this helps in your research.

Best regards,
Bonnie
