Photo of Webb, Strain, and Hatcher family
Hi, I'm a grandson of Geraldine Hatcher, pictured as a baby in your photo at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=24461436&PIpi=82128954 (William Strain memorial). Is there any chance I could get a higher-resolution image of that photo for our family tree?

Hello, I see you have documented quite a bit of Whittington info on Findagrave.com. I'm wondering if you are related to them and if so, could we discuss. Thanks, Sue Whittington

We have been to the described spot two times since my last note. It has to be in woods behind someone's house out of view.

Perhaps my contact was sending me on a wild goose chase, :-)

This is so frustrating! Edward's home (now gone) was located just past the Hope Chapel Cemetery, high on a hill overlooking Central Ave/Mayo Road. The cemetery was behind the house.

It is raining today (and the snow is almost melted) I will check with another local guy
who I have worked with before. He is most helpful.

Just wanted to keep you posted.

I have just added a MIHP black and white OLD photo of the cemetery to the cemetery description page. It takes a couple of days to be approved so might not be visible. If you wish, I can send you a copy in an email.

We will see what we can locate the first day it is not windy or raining. My husband is used to clearing brush, but unless we can get access, that will have to wait. I am looking for a sign that is supposed to be visible and an ADDRESS, then we can take it from there.

You kind words and help are appreciated.

Sorry for the delay. I honestly do not know what to tell you today. I can go up and down every street in the immediate area and ask the people.
This has worked for 2 old cemeteries that I located. Weather permitting. That is the best that I am able to do.

I understand your feelings, believe me. I have several families that have no known stones that I only want a "curb shot" of to put on the cemetery page....yet no one knows where they are located due to development.

Thanks for your continued patience.

Wishing you the best in 2015.

Hi Linda,
What a surprise and so nice to hear from you. I see your initials pop up occasionally so know you are still digging deeper into relatives. I hope you have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year as well. j

Thank you for contacting me. Yikes, it HAS been 2 years. I know nothing more than I knew before, unfortunately. Do you know of any family member that could at least give us some info? I would love to get those photos. Once photos are posted, you will most definitely hear from me.

Have a wonderful Christmas.
