You are welcome for the photo. It was a beautiful day to be out. Just a tad windy but not bad.

Claude and Mildred Thorn memorial changes
It is very easy to change the cemetery on a memorial for which you are the manager. Sign in, go the memorial page and click on the "Edit" link after the word "Burial" -- then select the correct cemetery by entering the state and county, and typing in the first few letters in the cemetery name. Just select the correct cemetery from the list presented, it will replace whatever was there before.

It is also very easy to edit the bio on a memorial page. While signed in, go to the memorial page and click on the "Edit bio" link just above the phrase "Family links". Type whatever you want, then be sure to save your changes by clicking "Save changes" at the bottom of the page.

Lastly, to add in the correct plot information, while signed in, go to the memorial page and click on the "Add plot" link just after the cemetery name. Type in the coordinates.

Best of luck!

RE: Lulu M Vincent/Kessler/Peterson.
Hi. I know little more about Lulu Vincent as she is only my second cousin, twice remove. I have to go back to her great grandfather Theopolis Vincent to have a common direct line. Theo's first name appears with various spellings. I think that he died in Haver, Missouri, but don't have proof. He appears to have had a struggle raising a large number of children, having two wives who died quite young. Most of my "branch" research has come from records on Ancestry.

We went ahead and transfered him to you, so you can add an obituary if you like.We know how it feels to find someone, we've been looking for.We're glad he has his family again. We're greatful for Find a Grave and all the people, that make it work.

Hi Jake & Nelly,
We're so glad we could take a picture for you both. I'm sorry to say but those flowers were from us. We put them down so you'd know where he was in the picture. If you notice in the picture from far away, not many in that section have flowers. We're definitely hoping you find out more.

Have a blessed day.

Photos to memorials
Hi Jake. Thanks for all the photos you've uploaded to Find A Grave. Just wanted you to know that it would really help if you'd spend an extra couple seconds on each photo to select the right correct "type": Grave, Person, Family, Other. There's a pulldown menu when you "Add a Photo", and you should select a type for each photo. When you do this, the correct icons appear in all the lists. It's really nice.

However, if you don't, it looks like every photo is a grave, which is the default. It's quite confusing when it seems like we have a grave photo, but really have a scan of an obit or a picture of the person. Do you suppose you could take some time to go through the photos you've uploaded and label them correctly? Hopefully it will only take a few minutes. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks and smiles.

RE: Aunt Alta Thorn
Hi Jacob,
You are very welcome. I only wish the letterning used by the stone mason would have been more bold and it would have been more visible in the small photo on the memorial page.
