Charles Charbonneau
Hi Randy, Thanks for the note about possible duplicates. I entered Charles Charbonneau 2x because there are 2 entries in Mt. Olivet with different plot info. It could be a clerical error, but it might also be 2 different Charles. It is possible that Charles, who died May 7, 1900, was originally buried in Mt. Elliott and moved a few weeks later. Or I might have the wrong Charles totally.
There is also a 3rd Charles Charbonneau listed for Mt. Olivet:
Charbonneau, Charles
Date of Interment: 05/07/1889
Cemetery: Mt. Olivet Cemetery
Location: Section 1, Tier 11, Space 317

I didn't make a memorial for him because I couldn't find any clues about him, as he isn't interred in a plot with other family members. I assume you're the person who requested a photo for Charles S. I've requested a photo for the other Charles, also. Please let me know what you find out.
In a few more days I will have no internet for a week, but rest assured that if you try to contact me and you don't hear back, I'm not ignoring you and will reply as soon as I return.

John and Marian Severance, Walled Lake Cemetery
Thanks very much for posting the photo of John and Marian Severance. Their son Melvin married a cousin of mine. I have now linked him to his parents. And thank you for the invaluable work that you're doing. I find that there is nothing sadder than to see "abandoned photos" in antique shops-nice to see efforts to make use of them.

Ezra Bush in Plainfield
I took a picture of Ezra T. Bush's headstone in Plainfield cemetery and posted it, but since there was a few other documents posted it doesn't show up on the first memorial page, I was wondering if you could adjust the order of the images so that its on this main memorial page.
I visited Plainfield cemetery and took photos of 59 headstones that weren't on this site. I increased the percentage of photos of headstones in the cemetery from 72% to 85%. I also found the stones of a few veterans that you had created memorials for - one I recall was W.W. Wood. I plan on going back later this year to get more photos. Thanks for everything. Adam
