RE: 29547329 Brian P. Hatcher
I have transfered the memorial of Brian to your care. I had to trim around it to get the pic, wish I could have got a closer one for you. Best wishes. Rose

RE: 29547329 Brian P. Hatcher
Martha, sorry for the delay. In what cemetery is Brian buried. I need to know in order to transfer him to you. I would be more than happy to transfer this memorial to you. Rose

RE: 37387547 Sharon Hatcher
Hello Martha,
No, I'm sorry to say I don't know this family. Sometimes I take little bunny trails on people whose memorials I am trying to fill out more fully, and often end up at cemeteries in other states or areas. It is always so sad and touching to see memorials for the babies and young children like this. I always add flowers and a loving comment.

When I first began photographing gravestones with Findagrave, I started with a very small section at a local cemetery. I thought, "This is small; I can do this!" As I went down the row, I suddenly realized, "OH! These are all babies!" In the other half of the section were the homeless, indigent, paupers. I was surprised by joy welling up that I could honor these who got no honor in this life, that I had a chance to give them a little dignity as befitting ones made in the image of God. People won't generally be searching for these "little people", but they are still important. It still moves me. So I do what I can. Thanks for noticing and commenting. It means a lot.

RE: 37387547 Sharon Hatcher
Hi Martha, I went back thru the info I have used to find Sharon Hatcher's burial site. The request for her headstone was from a lady with the last name of Haynes and she stated that she was looking for Sharon because her Grandmother has lost a child by that name at birth. Is it possible that she is related to you? She is the one who gave the dates on this burial.
Sharon (1945) is buried in the infant section of this cemetery. I believe this cemetery has changed hands several times plus it went thru a fire at one time. You may contact their office and request that they check to see if the dates are correct. Please google Forest Funeral Home in Olympia, Wa. and they may have the info for you. I do hope this helps you Martha. Gail

Thank you for taking the time to thank me. I enjoy doing this for others, and their thanks make it more special.

Constance Hatcher
Hi Martha, I have taken a photo of Constance Hatcher's stone and also those of Edward and Vera Bakke. You asked in your photo request for Constance whether I can determine what her maiden name might have been.

It appears that the Bakkes and The Corneliusons were buried in the same lot as Constance Hatcher. I am a genealogist but for my own family only, so of course I cannot say for sure what her maiden name might have been. It is my guess that she and Vera Bakke were sisters and they were daughters of the Corneliusons. Their stones are similar to one another and Vera and Constance were of the right ages to be sisters.

RE: Bakke Surname
God Morning,

The Bakke's I have put up on Find A Grave for the most part are the family of my husband's ex wife's mother. She and I became quite close and I was trying to help her find a lost brother. She is now deceased and her daughter has no interest so I have left it as it is.

Sorry, I know this is no help.

yes, thank you, except for the 12 inches of fresh snow that has covered all the cemetery

Martha: I took a photo of Floribelle Schmitz' grave marker today for you. There were several others in the Schmitz plot. Namely, John C; Dennis; Susan; Anna; and Mary A. I also took those shots. If you want to create memorials for them, let me know and I can add the photos.
