Find A Grave Memorial# 155866990 Richard K. Pool

I was about to create a new record for him but saw that you had one created already. I am actually documenting the whole family. Would you mind transferring his memorial to me? It would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Hap,
I wanted to let you know that I ran to cemetery today and took these pictures, I am sorry I did not see they were "claimed" and I added photos and just now checked to see if the requests showed finished and saw you had claimed them.

You also reported the same problems with his wife Elizabeth Jobes. Could you do the same for her information? It's possible that they were Quakers who believed that monuments were pompous and proud. Thanks for your effort and time.

RE: Gravestone Photo for 4 MacAulay Relatives at Once
You are most welcome. It was a pleasure walking the Huge grounds of Mount Hope. Ian deserves the most credit, since he has been requesting any versions of MacAulay and all I can find during my travels.
All part of the Celebrate Volunteerism!!!
