THANK you so very much for the photographs of the Breckenridge family. Your time is most appreciated. I don't know when I would get down that way so thank you again!

Thanks for letting me know about the date error on Homer's memorial. Is this your family? Would you like to manage his memorial?

The Dilley Memorial
Dear Dean...If it would be amenable to you I'd love to take over the Memorial for Myrle Dilley and his wife Celia Z. Trepanier. They are my Maternal Grandparents.

Also, My Great Grandfather is buried in this cemetery as well...Logan Dilley. If you manage that one I'd love to take over that too. Please let me know when you are able. Thank You for all the work you do in this cemetery!!!

RE: Wright family
Hi Dean,

It took me a few days to check all my Wright family info, but it appears that none of the four Wrights are connected with my family line, at least not that I am aware of at this point. If I do find a connection with any of them, I will certainly let you know! Sorry I couldn't be of any help.

Best regards,

Wrights, Asplands, Kelleys, Armstrongs & more!
Hi Dean,

I know we have messaged on several occasions and you have always kindly made transfers to me when I have made requests for family members! I've thanked you before, but after searching through family memorials this morning I realized that you really deserve a huge THANK YOU for the amazing job you have done at the Rockton Cemetery! It's not just the wonderful photographs of the graves there but the obvious countless hours of work you have done in researching, adding obituaries and linking family members. With nearly all of my paternal family buried there at Rockton Cemetery, I see your name constantly on family memorials.
I just wanted to say that it's volunteers like you that make this website the best of it's kind and thank you for all your work!

Best regards,

Rebecca Wright #47388083
