RE: Alberta Sarver 1935-2015
Your welcome for the memorial to Alberta. Yes she was quite a person, I talked to her quite often. She was a 2nd cousin of mine. We often exchanged information on genealogy. I just talked to her at the Lavy Reunion in July and she looked tired.

Nathrop Cemetery Requests
Hi again Bruce,
I just read about the Nathrop Cemetery and actually it is on private property according to the info I read. If I find different, I'll certainly try to research the people you're looking for.

Nathrop Cemetery Requests
Hi Bruce,
I got your requests for several of the graves at the Nathrop Cemetery. I'll try to get those if I get up that way. It's about 50 miles from here. First I'll need to find the cemetery! They just list gps coordinates here.

RE: Andrew Taylor Stephenson Jr.
Thank you for that information. I found the obituary you spoke of and posted it into his memorial. Thanks for your input and help.

Doc Baker's grave.......the site itself is easily seen and marked with a little "fence", but no stone yet...9-3-15,
I'll keep watching

RE: Laura Perea [1914-1995] and Wendell Somers Perea [1891-1938]
Many thanks, Bruce.

No info on the disposition of Laura's ashes; looks like a dead end.

In respect of Wendell, institutions are extremely careful about patient records, so no reply there.

The focus of my research is Susan Gates Perea --many mysteries there.

Again, thanks for all the work you do.

Laura D. Perea
Dear Bruce,

First, thanks for all your work on the Jose Ynez Perea family. It contains several mysteries for me. For Laura (as with her uncle Wendell Somers Perea), who was around to see that she was cremated, since she outlived all her family?

As for Wendell, how sure are we that he is in fact buried with his mother in Pendleton County KY? He seems to have been institutionalized all those years. Who saw to his burial?

Any light you can shed would be much appreciated.
