Hi John, FG member 47526185 added an obituary of Albert Turnham to his memorial and I thought you would want to read it. If you would like to manage Albert's memorial, please let me know.

RE: Re: Wilbur Schuster memorial

On both Wilbur and Elmer the info I added through the edit screens all came from the obituaries I found.

Cramer's in Lamine Cemetery?
Hi John, I sent a note to grandma Carol this morning as suggested by another contributor that I contact her... this is part of my original note:
"Memorials 37120839 for Russell Cramer & 37120829 for his wife Lynne are memorials in Bunceton Masonic Cemetery. Diana walked the cemetery and could not find headstones. She then found Russell's Obit that says he is buried in Lamine Cemetery (the obit appears on Russell's memorial page). "

This was part of her response:
"RE: Cramer's in Lamine Cemetery?
I've not been out to cemeteries as much as I'd like, lately, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get out again.
I do know that John Merrill, #47390844, did a lot of photo work at Lamine. I think he took photos of everything there, but you might want to ask him.
If it's any help, I've checked the historical society records for both cemeteries. They list Russell in Lamine: and Lynne in Masonic:"

SO I was wondering if you did indeed take a photo of Russell Cramer's headstone or possibly even the one for his wife Lynne (though no stone was found for her in Bunceton, it seems to be the conciseness that she really is buried in Bunceton and not Lamine).

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

Greetings! My Great-Great Grandmother is Mary E. Forman. I would LOVE to be able to manage her memorial, Find A Grave Memorial# 96270462. I would be ever so grateful if you would allow me to gather my ancestors together! I have lots of information to share about the children, grandchildren, greats, great-greats, and even two great-great-great grandchildren of Edward W. Forman and Mary E. Forman. Thank you for considering my request! Appreciatively, Carol Thomas

RE: Hi John Question
Thanks John!
They need to re-do registering the plots ugh

According to my cousin one lady did have the records and when she passed the guy cleaning out her house just tossed them into the fire not caring to turn them over to the church, library etc.

Hi John Question
On Concord Church Cemetery do they have plot numbers? I am working on a spreadsheet on the cemetery for a project.

My cousin said most the records were burned not sure how much information burial I suppose.
I just wondered if there were numbers to the plots is all :)

You can reach me at

Sappington Grove, Saline City
Recently I had success with a duplicate page merge. I would not have requested it had I not “owned” the older memorial page, transferred to me I suppose because the page maker did not want to deal with the duplicate issue. This was similar to your Sappington Grove duplicate in that it started with similarly named cemeteries in two locations and information on the duplicates was not identical. I requested a merge by sending information on both pages to and requesting the merge. The merge combined the information and gave credit to both original page makers. Currently Find A Grave lists a Saline City Cemetery, and I have been sending information to page makers most of whom have moved their pages to the right or better choice of cemetery. Only 3 are left. One, a Fizer, has a stone in Slater City Cemetery. Death certificates for the other two say burial at Saline City cemetery, but Ahrens is in St. Paul's and is a duplicate, and the Poindexter is most likely in Sappington Grove.
