Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it! I don't keep the 60,000 plus photos that I've taken.

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

Wanda Rutkowski - photo

Thank you so much for this photo. Wanda passed in 2011, however I see that the stone has not been updated. Would you let me know what, if anything, I can do get this done? Thank you for all the time and effort you have given to this site. J

Thank you so much for the cemetery correction. As they are distant relatives I am glad to make the correction and find their actual resting place. RLE

RE: McKee
You're welcome Vernon. I've made a couple of additional edits to some of the other memorials I updated last night as well. I noticed that the period after the middle initial B for Viva Belle Wright Mastin/VanWormer was not originally deleted as I thought when I typed in the full name Belle. I have removed it. I was not allowed to add Bessie A. Lewis as the spouse of Harry G. Lewis until this morning. You may wonder about her married and maiden names being the same. I asked my mother-in-law (Bessie's niece) if Bessie and Harry were cousins, and she told me they were not. The fact they had the same last was a coincidence. At some time, I hope to confirm whether or not Harry's father, George, and Bessie's father, James, were related. I gathered some additional information that I will also try to add when I get the chance, such as section locations at the cemetery and some additional photos. Thanks again for the feedback and your quick action on approving the edits. I don't always get responses so rapidly.
