You are welcome again! Sorry, had to make two trips, did one side of the cemetery one day and then went back. I'm old! :)

After a quick look in my records I don't have Marion in my ancestry.com tree. Can you tell me where she fits in? I recognized your last name right off and of course Robert was a great help to me when I first started my Amunrud research.

Done - thanks!!
The photos of William and Marie are now added to their memorials. I also took photos of the stones of Helen Pattison and Clifford F. Pattison which were next to the others. I assume they are related. If you will create memorials for them, I will be glad to add the photos. You probably want to edit William's memorial now that you have his dates of birth and death from his stone.
I have to add that usually people don't put their entire family tree on this site.

I just added both Marie and William to my photo "to-do" list. Will hopefully have them done by next week. Do you have a death year for William?

You're welcome, Kevin. Are you aware of Eileen Jones Peters? She's buried in the same lot, a big vase is between them Interesting - her marker was under mud from the recent flooding we had here, but his was barely touched. Weird. Take care, Amy

Of course I will be able to get them. Thanks!

Will look tonight or tomorrow.

The photos have been deleted as requested. Please keep this in mind for future requests. If you make a winter photo request you will most likely get a winter scene.
