Findagrave made a change that had a negative effect on some of my photos. If you find a blurry photo please email me and I will replace it ASAP.

|Kay Clerc||RE: John Ripple Sutherland|
Thank you Michelle!
Wow- I'm gonna have to look at the exact angle and condition of the flags in my photos.
Of all the family graves which have eluded me in the past, this one had a unique story...
My memory may be a little fuzzy in some of the detail (tho I have it all in notes). I had requested help with finding his burial (poss on Rootsweb?).
As it turned out, a group was planning to document part of the cemetery (for a tv show or some such thing), and a lady involved offered to check for his grave when they were there.
She reported back to me that as the group entered the cemetery and were headed in one direction, she had an odd feeling she couldn't shake toward the opposite direction. She asked her group to wait a few minutes...she walked straight up to the grave - with no prior knowledge as to where it might be, or even if a stone existed.
This must have felt as strange to her as it sounded to me because she continued to think about her experience. Later that week, she returned to put the flags at the grave and take photos. She laughingly told me she was adopting the grave because nothing like that had ever happened to her before.
Now, I discover that you also had been there at some point soon after, also taking photos.
For a lonely lost grave, with no family living in the area in decades - suddenly, here I was making an effort to find the grave, and then not just one, but two kind hearted visitors showed up - and cared enough to place a value on his grave.
It's kind of neat...

I wondered if you would be kind enough to transfer the grave of my gr-gr-uncle to me.
His brother, Tilson Sutherland, was my gr-gr-grandfather.
Also, I would have to check my archived email file to locate my resource...but did you take this tombstone photo [and place the flags]?
If so, you are the one who was so kind to photograph his grave for me several years ago.
I recognize the photo...

Michelle, thank you for the transfers.
I discovered that Andrew was born near Castlewarren, co. Kilkenny. Somewhere I have the spelling of the townland. I'm still trying to find out what his mother's maiden name was.

I am so sorry it took so long to make Your up dates, they got lost in my box, but they are done now. Thanks. Jarrott
Interesting note I worked with Her brother Everett for 25 years . I often wonder how he is, have not seen him in years.
|Regena Moser||Leo A. Hanna|
Could you take a pic of the headstone for Leo A. Hanna? I would appreciate it. Looking for my grand mother Leo Hanna. Thank you.
|Nancy (Hitchcock) Clewell||Walley family|
Thank you for transferring the Walley family into our care. You are appreciated!
Michelle, could you transfer the Bridget,24251696 Bernard 24251696, and Daniel Hart 24251697, Margret Lucas 24251737, Johanna Gallivan 24251638 and Daniel Gallivan 21884479 - I believe Johanna is the daughter of Bridget and Bernard Hart. Their graves are just next to Johanna and Daniel. I believe Daniel passed away shortly after he and Johanna married. Bernard and Bridget then moved to Champaign County (from New Jersey) with their younger son(Daniel) and can be found all living together in the 1880 US Census there in Champagin County. I don't believe the parents listed on Johanna's page are correct. If you'd like to correspond regarding these graves my email is firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers! Lynette
|Lynette Irvin||Ivesdale Cemetery|
Hi Michelle, I have some questions regarding the records for my ancestors at the Ivesdale Cemetery - Bernard, Bridget, Daniel Hart. I'm new to this site and not sure how the records are gathered. I was there recently and took photos...can you tell me how to get the records for the cemetery? Thanks, Lynette
|Tom Oatney||Flemm-Bowes Transfer|
Thanks for the transfer of Mary Louisa Flemm Bowes (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=21334279). I have updated with more info, including an obit and picture.
I also have an obit for her husband, Lawrence Bowes (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=21334276). I can send it to you or I am willing to manage that memorial also, if you do not have any family connections.
