RE: Lyle and Mary Howard
Hi Ruth,
I am so glad that you messaged me... I informed the creator of their memroials, D.C., that they were in the incorrected indicated Cemetery on their Memorials and did inform him of the correct Cemetery

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church Cemetery (New)
Also known as: New Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church Cemetery

Highway 35
Church Point
Acadia Parish
Louisiana USA
Postal Code: 70525

I keep checking to make certain that it is corrected.
Sincere thanks
Kathy S Savoie

Albert Howard

I have been to Mt. Olivet twice to search the T Section for Albert's headstone. Unfortunately, I have not been able to discover a stone for him. In the 203 Plot he should be the second to the last upright stone. There was no stone located in the space where he should be found . . . in fact, there was 3 empty spaces in the plot. If you would like to verify with the cemetery office, they will release the information to family members only. The office is open Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00. You need the full name, death date and the location for them to look up if there was a headstone placed on the grave.

Mount Olivet Cemetery
1342 East 5th South
Salt Lake City, Utah 84102-3225

I wish I could have been of more assistance.

Minerva Moore
Hello & Happy Mother's Day Miss Ruth,
Don't know if you use the "Edit" tab on your profile page, but if you can link Minerva Johnston Moore to her husband by copy/pasting his entry # 90061816 into her spouse family link, it would be appreciative. Also on the note on her entry, Minerva married Alexander in 1870, not '75, for there is an 1870 Federal Census with the two living together under surname Moore plus there first born, Robert E. Lee Moore, was born December of 1870.
Thanks for your time. -Marc G.

RE: Emma Pettenger
Hi Ruth,

I didn't see a stone for Lucy; I walked around the entire cemetery. There were a few stones that were in bad shape (unreadable).

Oh, great, then I'll keep Emma attached to Ebenezer's memorial. I see she died at only 22.

RE: Ebeneizer McDowell Pettenger
Hi Ruth. It's my pleasure. I didn't see a stone for Lucy, however, you may notice that I linked another woman's stone *Emma J. Pettenger (1845 - 1868)* with Ebenezer because her stone actually says she was his wife. Whether she was his first wife is something I am not sure about. You may know more than me. Perhaps she was his only wife and Lucy is incorrect. Hope this helps.
