RE: Harriet Bradbury Shaw
I am not sure how to remove it. I am sorry I placed the wrong picture. I will need to return to the cemetery and photograph the correct one. You being in control should be able to remove it or suggest a correction under other.

Deone-

You should request the transfer to you of the Memorial Pages of Herschel Lee Pearcy and Edna Mildred Miller Pearcy. Then you can link them up with your Dad Lee and other relatives.

RE: John W. Peer
Sorry. That should have been two births in Aug 1876; not the date.

RE: John W. Peer
I was researching at the DAR Library in DC yesterday and copied the following. Hope it helps to clear up the 2 Aug 1876 births for sons of Jesse Peer.
Newspaper Extracts from "The Hoosier State", Newport, Vermillion Co, IN. Jan. 6, 1876 to Dec. 27, 1877. Compiled by Carolyn Schwab.
p.76 Thurs., Aug. 17, 1876 Jesse Peer, of Dana, will soon be able to play a lone hand. Two little catnippers of the masculine gender put in an appearance at his home a few nights since.

p. 78 Thurs., Sept. 7, 1876 One of Jessie Peer's twin babies died last week.

How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone.

Gravestones should never be cleaned with anything but water and a soft brush. Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.

Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive. Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones.

Consult a professional before any attempt to clean a headstone is made.

How do I clean a bronze marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone.

The green is called verdigris and is the natural progression of bronze exposed to the elements, the verdigris will protect the bronze from further decay and SHOULD NOT be removed. Most if not all bronze when new will have a chemical patina applied to the bronze before installation that will over the years fail and expose the raw bronze to the weather that will then turn to the green that you see. The only way to slow verdigris bloom is to maintain the bronze every year from new. And the only correct treatment option with bronze that has verdigris is to apply a new patina to the bronze.

NOTE:Patinas come in many different colors, all bronze should be checked to insure that the green was not wanted.

This is not a do it yourself task and if done incorrectly it could damage or destroy the bronze object. And should only be done by those trained in the conservation of bronze.
