|Bio and Links|
I am researching several family trees and often help friends with genealogy. On one side of the family I am looking for the Lucks, Stegers, Poores and Frehafers. On the other side I am looking for the Plummers, Greeleys, Jones and Calverts. I have been known to take side trips through family trees just to see where they lead.|
If I put up a photo, I expect it to be treated with the appropriate sense one would use with any precious memory.
I am not acquisitive of my family's memorial pages. If they are being cared for, I am satisfied.

|Bill Bloom||RE: Poor Family in Chester Rural Cemetery|
You're welcome, Webspinner. Glad to be able to help. In Chester Rural, the Single Graves section is one of the oldest areas. These graves were often the most affordable. We speculate that the families of those in the unmarked graves couldn't afford to buy a monument or marker, or they didn't have family in the area. It's a sad fact of life. I feel it is important to take the photos of the area of the grave and provide the GPS coordinates so at least the family can see the actual location if they decide to visit to pay their respects. Take good care.

|GVMP Vols||RE: Elizabeth Kelty|
Probably is, based on the notation from his death certificate and her limited CDI entry, but nothing in the available cemetery records confirms it 100%.
|TimeTraveler||RE: # 134341835|
You are very welcome! I am not familiar with the cemetery layout so haven't found the others yet that you are looking for in section 2. The Hobbs I found seemed to appear right in front of me .... I find it funny when that happens, almost as if they want to be found.
Thanks for the info! It's so frustrating! I understand the concept of wanting to have correct information, but when I have entered over 10,000 memorials and get about 100 edits a month I just didn't have time to research every edit that was submitted to me. UGH! Sorry...just venting!! LOL! Anyway, thanks again for the info and good luck on your search :)

Hi!, thanks so much for the edit you suggested on Mary Blizzard. I've recently had a bad experience with undocumented edits. I approved edits just because someone suggested them and they turned out to be wrong:( Someone contacted Find A Grave complaining and Find A Grave advised me to have people post documentation to the memorial they are suggesting changes to (i.e. marriage certificate, death cert, birth cert, census info etc). I feel like such a witch declining people edits because I know that not all the information on the edits submitted is incorrect. So I've come to a sort of happy medium... I post a note on the memorial with the suggested changes until it can be documented. That way the info is not lost and someone else researching the same family can see it. Thanks for understanding.

You're very welcome! I wish we could clear the stone off a little better, but we try to tear up as little sod around the old city-issue stones as possible so as to remain on the cemetery's "good side."

|svh77||RE: William Landers|
Sorry for the delay responding. I returned from a trip just as this message arrived, and promptly got involved with a family emergency. The dust has settled, so I finally had a chance to check this out.....
According to his death certificate, William Landers had been in California for a little less than 21 years. Since his wife died in 1898, and he died in 1923, I think that would indicate that she is buried wherever they were living before he came to California.
Here's a link to his d/c at FamilySearch (you may need to copy and paste it):
Hope this helps......
