* Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery
* Home of Peace Cemetery
* Hoy Sun Memorial Cemetery
* Italian Cemetery
* Japanese Cemetery
* Olivet Memorial Park

I just approved your edits for this woman in the Mt. Erie "Old Yohe" Cemetery, Mt. Erie, IL. However, I see that there is 20 years difference in the age of her and husband Francis Andrews you linked. Are you sure about this?

RE: Pollie A Wilson
Heard that last about the time I left the Army in Petaluma (Two-Rock-Ranch Station). Lots of good memories of Cable Cars and the countryside of Marin. Can't say I want to see Cotati again, though. cb

RE: Pollie A Wilson
Just to see if you are paying attention. I'm a Giants fan from the McCovey, Marichal, Willie Mays era. That dates me. Still have the KSFO station ID music in my head. Then I moved to Paradise and have given up freezing summers - orange bridges whose towers vanish into the foggy heavens, and freeways that end . . . . . .

RE: Pollie A Wilson
Nope, not at the moment. You're welcome. Pollie is alone but for the grave next to her, which is unmarked - but you knew that. Keep hunting. Dodgers rule!

I created a memorial for SP Moses at the Congressional Cemetery. Thanks for the information!

RE: Thank You
you are very welcome. I felt the same way when i first put in a request on find a grave, now i am hooked. Its just people like you and me that take time to run over to our local cemetery and take a photo. I never receive any notices for a request to be done so i look up my local cemeteries and if there are request i go over about once a week.
Glad i could be of service.
