Smith headstone photos
I took the photos for James and Caroline Smith at Fairmont-Willow Hills cemetery. Next to them was a Martha Smith. I took her photo and if you create a memorial page I will post the photo for you.

Cedar Hill Cemetery
Hi! I noticed you have outstanding photo requests for Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suitland Maryland. I am preparing for a trip there Sept 8th and I'm planning on trying to fulfill as many of these as I can. Since this cemetery is so large (about 80,000 graves) it would help to have the section and plots of the burials. I have spoken to a lady at the cemetery named Carmelita Walker. She said she can't give the locations of these sites to me since they are not related to me but she said if you could give her a call at 301-568-5400 and tell her that you are a relative (or think you may be!) she can give it to you. She said there is no charge for her to look up this information. Once we have this information it will be sooo much easier to find the grave and photograph it. If you are no longer interested in fulfilling the request for whatever reason, just let me know too so I can cross it off my list. Thanks!

Clarence Eugene Book
Hi B. J. Parsons,

Sorry for the late reply on your requests. Due to lack of time and so many requests it is hard to complete them all in a timely basis.

You sent me the below information to add to Clarence Eugene Book. I do not manage this memorial. You manage the memorial. If you want me to add it I will be happy to. Just transfer his memorial to me and I will. I manage the rest of his families memorials.

Boy killed on U. S. S. Michigan One of Four Brothers in Service

One of the four sons which Mrs. Ella Book, a widow of 409 Galapago Street, gave to her country's army and Name when war broke out is coming home. Mrs.. Book received word from the Navy Department yesterday that the body of Clarence Eurgene Book, her second son, was being shipped to her. Young Book was one of the seamen killed aboad the U. S. S. Michigan.

He was 21 years old. Three brothers, Arthur J., Harold Fl, and Elmer J. are serving their country in the Army and Navy. Another brother, David, is of draft age. He will return from Kansas City to attend his brother's funeral.
The dead boy worked for the Otis Elevator Company before he enlisted in the Navy.

Young Book's body is expected to reach Denver Monday. The funeral will probably be held Wednesday afternoon from Olinger's Mortuary. Burial will be in Crown Hill Cemetery.

The life of self-sacrifice led by Mrs. Book that her sons might serve in America's fighting forces is appreciated by her neighbors. That her dead sailor son may be carried to his last resting place beside his father in Crown Hill Cemetery by men of the service in which he gave his life the neighbors have asked the Naval Authorities to request all sailors on leave in Denver to attend the funeral. The neighbors intend to turn out in large numbers to honor young Book and they think it only fit that he be given a Naval Funeral.

RE: William S. Kaiser
I've transfered the Kaisers, but I couldn't find Johanna Siecke. Is she the same as Johanna Hodel?

Would you be willing to transfer management of these memorials to me? They were part of my Mother's family.

Mary Perkins gooden
I spent over an hour looking for her this morning and even went to the funeral home near there to see if they could be of any help. All they can tell me is that she is buried there,they couldn't tell me where or if there is a marker. Do you know whom she may be buried with? I will try again
