RE: word family-help
Valerie, 3 years ago several of us from the Anderson County Historical Commission photographed every marked grave we found in Memorial Cemetery. I believe all those photos have been posted to Find A Grave but I will check to be sure. There are many headstones that are no longer legible and probably a number of graves with no marker at all. If I find any additional photos I will post them. Good luck in your family search.

RE: GRANDMOTHER
There are approximately 8 Anna Louise Gardner's who died in California. Do you have a year she died in?

RE: GRANDMOTHER
Hi Valerie: I would need a little more information. Did she die in California? Do you know what county she died in? I take it she is not on Findagrave. So the only way you might find her is to know where she died and when and then purchase a death certificate. Cemeteries in California are not very friendly as to people calling for information if you aren't related. Plus our cemeteries have 80,000 or more burials in each. It's a daunting task. Chris
