Hi Dean,

Sorry it took so long for me to make this correction! I noticed when I was cleaning out my inbox that I hadn't done this yet. I've done it, and thanks for finding out more about Alfred.

My relative are buried at St. Marcus, but no idea where and no stones of course. I was so depressed when I went to that cemetery...

RE: William & Hattie Atchison - Mount Muncie
No, I'm not related, so a transfer will not be necessary, but thank you though! I'm just trying to photograph all the graves at Mt Muncie that have no photos but have the grave location and the Atchisons were on my list.

Hi Dean,
I have linked her to her parents and added full dates and places as well. I'll be happy to transfer the Dunwoodys if you'd like.
Thanks so much,

oops !
Wrong person. How disappointing. The name and date was so close. If you have an interest in Greenwood Cemetery, perhaps you'd like to add the recently found Schwimm grave stone to this cemetery. Hopefully, it will be returned soon. Thanks.

I noticed you have a memorial set up for this young man. I wasn't sure if you were aware his stone was found in someone's backyard. I found the article and photo here

Re: Charles Chapman
Thank you Dean for the edits, I just happen to find them tonight, I had no idea that there was such a thing. Charles was the father of my Uncle Gay who is married to my mothers sister Dale Leonard Chapman. I am actually on my way next week to see Charles grandchildren. May I ask how you are related? Hope to hear from you. Thank you again for your work and help.

RE: Floyd Seeley
I found that postcard in a Leavenworth antique store yesterday. It was addressed to Floyd (1425 Spruce), dated 1918 and signed "Papa." I am sending you an email as this will get pretty lengthy. Since you are related, I'd like to return the two postcards and other pictures to you. Check your email shortly.
Best wishes, Suzanne
