Hello again. George F. Gerber and Evelyn M. Stetson are my 2nd great grandparents. I have George's parents as John & Sabina (Stambaugh) Gerber. I am researching more on the Gerber side of my family and was delighted to find you have the photo's of the headstones. Do you have any further information on George F. Gerber? I have Evelyn Stetson family back to like the 1500's in England. Look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for helping me with my Uncle Henry Halbur. I recently spoke with my Aunt and she told me that two of their Children are in this same cemetery. Jane Marie Halbur Bouwma and Jack Henry Halbur. I am not able to find them on the list for this cemetery. Do you have any suggestions as to what I could do to find them in West Lawn Memorial Park. Jane was born: 18 September 1943 and died 26 January 1962,
Jack was born 9 January 1947 and died 11 December 1992. Any advice would be great.
A second attempt to photograph photo requests at Lakewood Memorial Park with complete Section and Lot information posted will be made in October. Please help your photo volunteers to help fulfill your request by obtaining the information requested below. Thank you!
A visit to Lakewood during this past weekend revealed that the care of the cemetery, other than mowing the lawn, is almost nonexistent. Approximately 3/4ths of the graves need trimming in order to read the name and/or date on the grave marker. Some graves are almost completely invisible until you walk right up to them. The only graves that looked tended to are those that were from recent burials or those that individual families were maintaining. I did not see one in-ground lot marker to help locate a cemetery lot.
If you hope that a photo volunteer will ever be able to fulfill your photo request(s) at Lakewood, please contact the cemetery to get the section and lot information for your photo request(s) and post the information to the online memorial. Walking the grounds to find someone is currently pointless with so many names covered up. Finally, in light of the current state of the cemetery, asking the office staff if there is a grave marker and asking them to e-mail you a map of where the grave is located would greatly help your photo volunteer.

Henry Halbur is my Uncle by marriage to my Aunt Johanna Christensen. If you can transfer him that would be great.
