DO NOT REQUEST GRAVE PHOTO ...........
The general problem they reported is:
They also reported, specifically:
I walked the entire cemetery 02/06/2015. The original markers evidently had painted row/plot numbers only – no names, dates or engraved information. The painted information is completely gone. There are still remains of some wooden markers, which are also blank and nearly disintegrated.
The original markers appear to be concrete with a metal frame inside, and more than a few of these are broken or missing. There are a limited number of traditional stone markers and all of them have photos on Find-A-Grave, according to my cross-checks today. If the name you requested does not already have a photo, then an identifiable grave marker cannot be found in this cemetery.
For these reasons, your photo request cannot be filled.
I humbly ask that you do not make any further photo requests for this cemetery as I believe all of the graves that can be documented are done. Western State Hospital cannot release any information except to family members by written request due to legal/privacy concerns. The cemetery is now owned by a private company. The new owners did allow me to access the cemetery, but access is controlled. Thanks.
Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it. If you can fix the problems that were reported and believe a photo can be acquired, please feel free to make a new request.
