You found Great-Great-Great Aunt Marion, too!
I have created a memorial page for my Aunt Marion. Could I ask a favor? Could you put two photos on her site?
1. your photo of her obelisk with mother and father on either side.
2. a crop of that photo so I can see the markings clearly. Your photo is so good I viewed it at 400% magnification, and no pixels! I can't quite make out the inscription past her name though, and 400% is the biggest I can make it.

Thanks again for what you have done for our family history.

Thank you so very much!
You found my great-great-grandpa, Thomas. Others have been out there and reported "no marker". How they missed it, I have no idea. But I have a photo there for great-great-grandma Ann. Go figure.
Anyway, thank you for a beautiful effort. I just love the overall scene photos. I think I even see little Abbey Jane's marker. (She died at age 5 when she pulled a pan of hot shellac down on herself.) Hers is the little repaired marker behind the others. From the two scene photos, I almost feel like I'm looking at them with my own eyes.
I really appreciate your time, effort and thoughtfulness. And I'll keep it in mind as I photograph here in Florida for others far away.
