RE: Sopers - Graceland
Just looked at the photo - don't know who the James and Mary are . . . his son James is buried in NY, at least I thought that was him . . . so I wish I could read the dates. Let me know in a couple of weeks when you get the photos. I'll ad two memorials for a James and Mary Soper, I can always change them or delete if needed. I'm puzzled, but things may be clear when I can read the stones. Could be a brother to Albert, I think I remember one.

RE: Sopers - Graceland
That sounds great. I added at least two photo requests I think for the Sopers, I'll look at the photo and see what I can determine from my research. George is a distant cousin and I know a lot about his line, but not so much on the Sopers. Thanks for your help. I didn't request a transfer, but was really happy when that came through.

RE: George Merrill - Graceland
OK, so I went back to my database and found that I got his birth date, 12/22/1835, Rome, Oneida County, NY, from his passport application on I just sent a SAC to the memorial manager and also a note about where I got the information. Hopefully that is enough to have it updated with the full correct date. Thanks for your help!

RE: Mary Merrill and Sarah White Photos
Thank you. Having issues with computer but would like photos of the Sopers in Sec. M. Will go check them out and post requests if I can. Did you notify manager about birth date for George?

Mary Merrill and Sarah White Photos
Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of Mary and her daughter Sarah's tombstones. I am hoping that you were able to take photos of their spouses, George and Frederick. I can post photo requests if you would like. I found out after posting Mary's request that George was also buried there but didn't have any requests available until now. If you took photos of other Merrills and Sopers while there, just let me know and I'll post the requests.
