I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

RE: Abingdon
Thanks so much for the transfers. I really appreciate it. Do you mind transferring Charles M. Vertrees, as well? That will give me all seven Vertrees family members who are listed at Abingdon. I called the cemetery and someone there took and sent me a picture of my great great grandfather's headstone. It's an awesome addition. Again, thanks so much for your time and for all you've done with Find A Grave. It's a wonderful service to all family members. One day, I hope to visit Abingdon Cemetery . . . and your hometown. THANK YOU!

How do I get a headstone photo?

I am looking for the obituary and headstone for #8031667. She is the 1st wife of my grandfather Henry S. Brown.

RE: Re Malcolm Story
You are welcome... it's always great to fill in "the dash", i.e. the time between birth and death. Thank you for posting.
