|Carol & David||RE: Urbanus Albert|
You are very welcome. I found it very interesting that Urbanus Albert's father was a member of the 153rd. Mt husband and I both had a relative in the 153rd and I have a virtual cemetery for the 153rd. I also have a new book by Jeffrey D. Stocker on the 153rd, titled "We Fought Desperate".
|Rhonda Brooks Daugherty||Sarah Lemasters|
Thank you so much for the photo of Sarah Lemaster's headstone. I really appreciate your time and effort.
|flashbeagle||RE: Mary Conkle|
I got a call back from the caretaker. He couldn't find record of the interment. He gave the birth date of 1/27/1869. He said he'll keep an eye out for the stone, but he is not hopeful to find it. *Super* nice guy.
|Cheryle Latour||Ida Mae (Michael) Prater...Whetsel|
Ida's mother was Mary Lucinda Miller. John Andrew and Mary Lucinda were married 18 November 1883, two years after the death of his first wife, Mariah Shortridge. Mariah died 7 March 1881. She is buried in the Yeoman Cementary in Carroll County, Indiana, not Beech Grove. If Mariah is her mother, Ida would have to be at least 7 years older than the date on her marker. John Andrew and Mariah were married 10 August 1878 in Carroll County, Indiana. To my knowledge they only had one child, Veronica, nickname "Verna". If you have any more records on Mariah I would appreciate it if you would share them with me. - Cheryle

Hello! I noticed on the memorial that you had referenced cemetery records in regards to his name. I was wondering if there were any other notations in the cemetery records. I'm looking for a James H. Shaw, husband of Elizabeth A. Laws Shaw. They lived in Anderson township, Marion County, IN in the 1880 census. Elizabeth is widowed on the 1900 census.
I appreciate any direction you can give me in regards to the cemetery records.

I'm sorry Rick but I had taken the photo of this memorial in 2012...I still added it as it's rare that we get requests fulfilled at AMP anymore :( They make it unpleasant most of the time when I go in to ask for info and they realize it's for Find A Grave. I will remove my photo if someone (or myself) gets a current one with the death date but until then I'll leave it unless you let me know you would rather I didnt':) I'm adding a new photo request just in case someone might get a current photo. I have about ten more cds with photo from 2011-2013 at AMP to add pics but haven't gotten to them until now unfortunately.

|Janet S. Alvis||Thompson Memorial|
Thank you, Rick, as always, very appreciated ;) All family connected on this one ~ Sarah/Susan... if you have a closer, clearer photo of (sadly, only) her marker, would be greatly appreciated!

|Mrs Donna Schauss||Almina France Pic Request|
This photo request is no longer visible but I plan to look for the stone. I was at Wesley Chapel today and filled one request. But will need more time to go thru the cem and hopefully not so hot out. I "cem hop" so I get breaks in between. I've been to this cem in past and had written down the names - at least maj of. May have missed some, saving for another day. Espec since I don't have France as a surname on my list of names row by row. I also have a list of names that don't have pics on mem pgs. So this will be my "next project" - to work at this cem to find Almira French and others that need pics. I need to remind myself as I look that she's an infant so there may be a very sm stone. dg
