Lydia! Sorry, Lydia Silfven.
I have another photo request for an Anna and got my wires crossed on that name.

Carl A. Silfven
Hello, dfilpus--

I just added a headstone photograph for Carl Silfven, and I'll be adding one for Anna in the next few days, as soon as I get it cropped.

Are you any relative of these two? My great-great-grandfather was a friend of Mr. Silfven through their temperance organization in Hancock and a customer of his photography studio.

RE: Silfven - Holy Cross
I couldn't find her tombstone this morning. I knew there was 2 Crypt 1, Tier A at Moss. I didn't know there are 3 Crypt 1, Tier A. I added she tombstone.

RE: Photo for Leo Wagoner
Thank you. I thought I would have to wait some time before sending a request for Grace's photo. Leo is my first cousin, and they were favorite relatives of mine.
