RE: Granzow, Brock Cemetery...
It is so odd, because I have looked on other devices and they weren't upside down there. I did delete them so as not to cause confusion. I don't have the column on my iphone that indicates if they are "claimed" but I did see column on teh Ipad. So, now I know to check that in the future. Still puzzled over the orientation of the pictures, what device (if you don't mind) are you using? Thanks, just trying to help others...

RE: Granzow, Brock Cemetery...
Sorry, I was at the cemetery and saw the request and the gravesites, so I added them. I don't see where they are upside down. They are right side up at the website on my Ipad and iphone. If you prefer, I remove my pictures, I will, no problem. Thanks!

RE: Sophia & John Kelly
Yes. John Monroe was Sophia Kelly's first husband. John E Kelly was her second. John E (Edward) Kelly and Sophia were my great grandparents. Sophia's name at birth was Albertina Sophia Schneider. She was born in Morsbach, Germany, 5 Oct 1867 and came to America at the age of 14. John Edward Kelly was born in Mahonoy Plane on 24 January 1869. John Monroe was also cousin of John E Kelly.
