RE: Marriage date
Annette, you indicated that I posted something on a grave of the possibility of a marriage in Indiana in 1723? What grave are you referring to? It didn't show me that on the message.

RE: Catherine Auld Claar
Annette -

I'm not related to the Auld Family. Catherine was the mother of Emma F. (Lidey) Nutter. Emma and husband, Charles Polk Nutter, lived in the town I grew up in and their daughters were involved in Delta, CO businesses and its people. Their daughter, Stella M. Nutter, married Millard Fairlamb and I'm a 6th cousin, twice removed to Millard. His son, Samuel Larkin Fairlamb, sold property to my father and the family lived next door. We didn't know about the relationship until I started researching my family tree.

I have done research on these families - are you related?

Small World - but I would hate to have to paint it!

RE: Cleaning headstones
The list I have is a copy from the National Park Service and Department of Veterans Office Cleaning Headstones. They use D/2 Biological Solution NON-TOXIC & NO SCRUBBING. You spray it on and the green algae and leaches go away. They use this on the headstones in National Cemeteries. Great stuff I use it. The ingredients in ammonia is not good for headstones. This is what you don't want to see in a bottle of ammonia.** Bleach or bleach‐like products
Household bleach or other oxidizing cleaners, such as Daybreak cleaner or HTH Shock N
Swim pool treatment may chemically react with the stone surface and leave soluble
salts in the pores of the stone which will lead to decay. Check the label of the cleaner or
the Materials Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for active cleaning ingredients. If the products
contain sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), sodium perborate, sodium percarbonate, sodium
persulfate, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, calcium hypochlorite or urea peroxide, do not
use them for cleaning the headstone. For example, Daybreak cleaner contains 14%
sodium hypochlorite and is not recommended.

RE: James M Hoon
He assumed he was buried there sense in 1866 they removed all union soldiers from the battlefields around Cold Harbor. There are over 889 unknown soldiers buried there. You have to talk to Dennis to transfer him to you. They either did not mark his grave or the marker was lost. 99% of them were wooden boards. There were two battles in and around Cold Harbor and Gaines Mill, 1862 & 1864. The two battlefields touch each other. I live 3 miles from Cold Harbor. The picture is an index card not his military records. Sorry I couldn't help I tried.

Tombstone tip
Thanks, Annette. I had not tried that tip to bring out the writing on older headstones. It is ironic that while the metal (white zinc) markers from the 1870s-80s were considered "lesser" monuments, they are the ones that have endured in good condition for more than a century. The stone monuments were thought to be the best available, and cost much more, but many of them are now lost to history.

RE: Simon Parshall
Hi Annette,

I am always happy to help another Findagrave member. Both of the headstones you needed were nearly unreadable. I tried to get in close and increase the picture contrast so that you could get some of the information written on them. In a few years the inscriptions might be completely faded away.

Harry Allen photo request
I went to El Reno Cemetery to fulfill your photo request, and I found a Harry Dale Allen, who died in 2003. If this is your person, please let me know and I will upload the photos I took. Not sure if this is the right person as there are no dates as to when he died on his memorial.

Let me know if this is the right one,
