|Vickie Potter-Boechler||RE: Potter children|
Thanks for doing that. I noticed you had done it on John N Potter and thought that was a good idea for George and Hannah.
Did you ever find out about the Pindar name?
|MFC||RE: Gwen Cotner picture|
It is getting better here. The light was not the best because the grave site was in the shadow of the church building. The grave, by the way, is located in the first row of the east border right across from the church.

You are very welcome, Winter is not ideal to photograph a cemetery! I photographed it a month ago and am just getting to the monuments, I started with the oldest section.
|Steve Burton||RE: problem in San Luis Obispo|
Certainly. I want people to get what they want and need.

I found a couple articles about William Dewitt from 1895. One says he has typhoid fever and the other one says he died and leaves 12 kids and a wife. Not real detailed but it works.

I am a Find A Grave volunteer like you are. I am doing this to save you time and disappointment.
Sadly, there is absolutely NO cooperation from the San Luis Cemetery with Find A Grave volunteers. I was threatened with the police by the owner of the SL Cemetery, just talking to him over the phone. No volunteers have claimed a request in over 18 months. However, there has been great success with the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society. You can request a photo of the grave stone(s) for whom you are looking by doing the following; and they will respond promptly:
Address your email to
Put in the subject line
San Luis Cemetery Headstone photo
Give them the name and birth and death dates, or as much as you know. Ask them to send a picture of the headstone, and tell them how you are related or what your interest is in this person. They will appreciate that. This information may only be used in genealogical research. They will respond to you within a day or two.
I have checked the data base for you and found that those you are seeking DO have headstones.
They will send you the photo as an attachment to email. They took photos of the thousands of headstones they indexed in 2009 and 2010. They photographed virtually all headstones that could be deciphered. Everyone, who was buried there before 2009-2010, and who has a headstone, has a picture of their headstone in the database of the Genealogical Society. The society will respond to individuals, but prefers not to send pictures in bulk to Find A Grave volunteers. They also have not made an agreement to download their data to the Find A Grave servers.
I will ask that the request be removed, now that you have a very reliable and quick way to achieve your goal. If there is any problem, please let me know.
As a reference here is the website for the index. I have checked the index myself and found that a headstone exists for this person.

|Ron Kinney||RE: Thanks for the photo|
You're welcome Don, glad to help.
|Robert Kuhmann||DeWitt / Witt|
You are now the "custodian" of ALL: DeWitt & Witt memorials that I've created in recent years...
Which DNA service did you use for the project?
