I am in the process of shooting the entire cemetery. Many sections of this cemetery were filled with Civil War veterans. As the cemetery started to run out of room for more burials (apparently in the 1920s and 1930s) they started burying people between the existing Civil War burials and numbered those plots 1499-A (for example) or, in some cases where the Civil War burials were farther apart, the new plots were numbered -A, -B and -C. There appears to be no relationship between the soldiers in 1499 and 1499-A. There are several thousand -A burials in this cemetery and that is the reason I suggested deleting the extra tombstone photo since there is no relationship between the two except their burial location.
Please check the following memorial. You are the wrong tombstone photo posted

Laurie, thanks so much for taking and posting the photo of Samuel Smith's gravestone, and for doing such a good job so promptly. I'm very grateful, and I think it adds a lot to the memorial.

Thanks for the suggestion. I went to Greenlawn and found that the other Laurie has claimed the responsibility. I found the same problem that others had found. There are people buried there without markers. Also, the records in the office are questionable. They provide a diagram of the cemetery that is unreadable. This is a city responsibility, and not a private cemetery, someone is not doing their job.
|Hal Carter||RE: Eason photo|
OK! I had already sent the photo to the requester; but, I'll fulfill the request for administrative reasons.
Do you live in Hampton also?
|Hal Carter||RE: Find a Grave Photos|
Hi Laurie, I think I got two Laurie's mixed up. There is a Laurie Mercer that was also taking pictures in this area. Anyway, I'm new to this hobby and didn't know the procedure. What I did after receving a request was to go to the cemetery and take the picture then go back to the computer to send it. I found that each time I tried to click on "fulfill" I couldn't send the photo, so I sent it to the requester via E-mail. I found out today that the reason I couldn't send was because someone named "Laurie" had CLAIMED the picture and that would stop others from sending. I assumed that that ment she committed to take and send the picture. It doesn't matter to me as long as the requester got the picture. I sent the requester for Eason a picture this morning so you won't have to do that one unless you want to.

You are fast on taking pictures. I get the request for photos also. I went out this morning to take pictures for Neal, Boutwell, Eason and Bell and found when I was ready to send them that you had already sent some pictures. Boy, you are good. I'm just going to let you do your thing. You obviously have a knack for this thing. No need for both of us doing it in this area. If at anytime you need help, just let me know.

Thank you so much Laurie for the photo for Richard. He was one of 123 men from my sister unit in Vietnam that was killed in action. Soon I will have all of them back together again where they belong and then my work will be done.
The grave marker for the Tranters is new. I have learned today that it is not yet installed. I appreciate you claiming the request. I will resubmit it in a few weeks after I have heard the installation is complete.

Thank you so much for taking the grave site photo. The FMA alumni association really appreciates it.
