RE: Photo of William Barbour
It almost didn't happen. The cemetery office had no record for a William Barbour. I went home and looked at the memorial page and saw the obit as well as the link to Ella. I went back and they found that Ella was buried in A-51. I looked at the map and saw that it showed Wm. H. Barber. Looking at that plot record, it was listed under Wm. Barber and showed ten burials.

Did you look at the caption for the photo of the plot? Do you know all of those buried there?

I have suggested edits for the various family relationships. Do you know how Addison T. Hall and Adelbert L. Hayton, Sr. are related to others in the plot?

RE: Ralph Hatch
You're welcome, and thank you for paying me such a nice compliment. I guess we never know what impact our actions can have on others. Makes you always want to do your best. I am glad you are also volunteering. It is so worthwhile.

If I can be of any further service, just let me know.

Best regards,

RE: Ralph Hatch
Hi again! I've added the photos and I can't believe what I found when I got there yesterday. The stone was about 8 inches under the surface. They uncovered it, but it needs to be brought back up to the surface. I'm not sure when that will be accomplished, but I am sure they are not going to leave it like it is. It would be dangerous for the mowers and other equipment and is also a trip hazard for people. I am hoping there are not others in the El Reposo Plot like this. They tried so hard to make the area beautiful, especially in light of the fact that they were building a huge new mausoleum complex close to this plot, and they wanted the area around the new complex to look good. As long as there are folks like you who are looking for relatives, and people like me are trying to find them, perhaps any or all buried headstones can be found. One can only hope.

Hello! I have claimed your photo request but unfortunately could not find the headstone. I thought that was strange, since the El Reposo Plot was renovated last year, and the entire area was re-seeded with grass. Now, the place has wonderful thick, green grass and looks fantastic. When I couldn't find the stone, I called on the staff to help. Apparently, the marker had sunk below the surface some time ago, and it was not discovered during renovation. The new grass has grown completely over it. I put in a work order for them to dig it out. It should be done in a week or so. For now, I am going to add a photo of the area so that you can see what it looks like. Otherwise, my photo 'claim' would have expired before they could get the stone uncovered and then someone else would have had to go out and get the photo. Please be patient while we get this taken care of. I will let you know when a new photo showing the stone has been added.

Best regards,
