photos for the Presseys
I am a F-A-G volunteer like you are. I am doing this to save you time and disappointment. I would want to be treated this same way.
Sadly, there is absolutely NO cooperation from the San Luis Cemetery with Find A Grave volunteers. I was threatened with the police by the owner of the San Luis Cemetery, just talking to him over the phone.
However, there has been great success with the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society. They completed exhaustive photographing of gravestones at San Luis Cemetery.
You can email a request for a photo of the grave stone(s) you are looking by doing the following; and they will respond promptly:
Address your email to
Put in the subject line
San Luis Cemetery Headstone photo
Give them the name and birth and death dates, or as much as you know.
Ask them to send a picture of the headstone, and tell them how you are related or what your interest is in this person.
They will appreciate that. This information may only be used in genealogical research.
They will email you within a day or two with an attached photo(s), if it exists.
I will ask that your request be removed (so others arenít discouraged), now that you have a very reliable and quick way to achieve your goal. If there is any problem, please let me know.
As a reference here is the website for the index for all the burials at San Luis Cemetery through 2010.
Best wishes.

Ernest Spaulding
Thanks for the parent info. Ernest was married to my first cousin, but I don't think I had ever heard his parents names. Have added the links and will add to my genealogy database. Cindy

RE: Albert Charles Waltenspiel
I need the memorial Id - also it would be time saving if you would use the edit at top of memorial and then use the "Suggest". This is a much better way of requesting a transfer. Please include your ID. Thank you.

James H Spaulding @ Forest Park
I see you added a picture request for James H Spaulding @ Forest Park Cemetery in Houston. If you would call the cemetery at 713-928-5141 and get a "SECTION" and "LOT" I will try to get the picture you want. This is a very large (225+) acre cemetery and without a location would be very hard to find.

Thank you,
Cecil Vaden Jr

RE: Virginia Waltenspiel
Hi, Shawn --

Yes, I have a photo of Virginia's grave. It is in the plot at Cypress Lawn where Wilhemia's should be.

The stone reads:

1843 Edward 1926
1868 Virginia C. 1943

There is a memorial page on Findagrave for a Virginia Lequesne, but I was not possible that was the correct interpretation of the stone, so I did not post the photo.

I did not see another Waltenspiel marker in the area but I can go back and look, ask at the office next time.

Photo Request - Wilhemia Waltenspiel
Hi --

Could she possibly have gone by "Virginia" and was born in 1868?
