Good afternoon Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request. Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at just Forest Home that had the grave location information provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have victoriously concluded 900 photo missions with 150 triumphs already in 2014.

Reminder for Marion Hewitt
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Hello, T.L.P.,
In an effort to winnow down the number of Find-a-Grave photo requests in my area, I am asking for your help.
Forest Home cemetery limits the amount of information it will dole out to one person--and they've pretty much let me know I've reached my lifetime limit. If you can contact their office for the plot location of the photos you're requesting, it will speed along the process of your getting photographs.
Here is the contact info:
Phone: (708) 366-1900; fax: (708) 366-1921
One last thing: PLEASE ask if there is a headstone.
--Debbie B.

I searched the Cerulean Cemetery and could not locate this stone. I researched further and discovered in the transcripts compiled for Trigg County KY, that they have it listed for the Kenady Cemetery, a few miles away just outside Wallonia. This is a small family-type cemetery in a field. I could see the cemetery from the road but I couldn't find a way to get to it without crossing private property. I was only visiting the area and won't be able to go by again anytime soon, but I thought you might want to know about the Cemetery listing.

If you would add the tomb stone to Rosanna Cox Jones who was added to the find a grave 6-15-2002. #6514126 It already has her parents and husband and it would then remove the double entry for Rosanna Cox Jones that you added 5-29-2008 #27180859. These are relatives of mine and don't feel that we need to have her in the data base twice. Thanks so much for all your work! I also have spent time working with find a grave and understand how double happen. Thanks for your help. Clarice

RE: Pleasant Hill Cemetery Requests
Dear TLP:

I would be most happy to send you the pictures of the other Bobbitts Headstones that I have taken. The problem is that I do not know how to get them on the website except to make memorials for each of them. I could send them directly to you if I have your email address. Just email me at my email address listed on my contributor page. If you want the memorials made, I can do that also. I need to tell you that I will be out of town from June 17 - June 23, so if you can get back to me asap, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Helen

Pleasant Hill Cemetery Requests
Dear TLP:

I took pictures today of the four headstones you requested and have posted them online on their memorial pages. I do have otherheadstone photos
for several Bobbittsthat I took, since I was in the cemetery. My list, besides the four you requested, includes Ralph and Mary Bobbitt, Jimmy Lee Bobbitt, Leroy and Nellie Bobbitt and Myrtle Bobbitt, wife of Arthur Bobbitt. If you would like any of these, I would be happy to send them to you.

Thanks, Helen Robbins, Guymon, OK
