RE: Donald and Maxine Koehler
You are very welcome. I try to take some photos somewhere in Dearborn county each time I visit, and I guess you were lucky that I was trying for nice, flat sections at Riverview to photograph because some of Riverview you have to be part mountain goat, and I have a bum knee.

Sorry, I now see there are 2 Lucretia, and I added photos to the wrong one. Let me know, before I remove them

Lucretia Bush, Busti Cemetey
Hurrah. I finally found her. I had to chalk it to be doubly sure. You can see a before and after picture. There's a bunch of people listed with her, she's the next to the last. If these people aren't already listed, if you'd like to list them then I will add the photo. OK?

RE: Stiles Cemetery
Hi Helen,

I was so busy describing our adventure in the Stiles cemetery that I forgot to say you're welcome to use the photos on your family tree.

RE: Stiles Cemetery
Hi Helen,

Fay and I spent several hours at the Stiles cemetery yesterday, which as you may know is in a grove of trees and gets virtually no light. It was a pretty cloudy day and so the lighting was quite a problem. We spent a lot of time swatting mosquitoes as we waited for the clouds to pass and for the sun to move gradually so that it would filter down through spots in the heavy canopy of leaves. Then, when a shaft of sunlight appeared, Fay would use the mirror to shoot light onto the stones; and this worked quite well, even for stones that were in the deepest recesses of the grove.

Unfortunately, however, the stones that were most important to us - Gould Stiles, Delight Broughton, Anna Garfield and Alice (Stiles) Pember - were the most difficult to shoot, because, although they were in open areas in the grove, nevertheless the available light could not reach them and illuminate their inscriptions. So, finally Fay left the grove and went into the adjacent farm field to get direct sunlight that she could send up the hill to the grove. But even so the photos are barely respectable.

This is the sort of situation that must be photographed in the fall and winter when the trees are bare. Then there would be sufficient light to use the mirror effectively. But I'm in VT only during the summer, so we've got to work with the conditions that present themselves to us.

In any case, I much prefer small family cemeteries, like the Stiles burying ground, to large, relatively impersonal cemeteries. Not sure why, but I had plenty of energy yesterday, afternoon, despite the difficulties, that wasn't available to me in the morning in the Hillside Cemetery in Castleton. Go figure!

Again, thanks so much for your message.

Mt Pleasant Cemetery, Seattle
Hi, Helen. I see you have a couple of photo requests for this cemetery. I would be happy to take photos if you have the location of the graves within the cemetery. It is quite large and they apparently charge to look up the locations beyond the first request. Let me know. Sharon in Seattle
