RE: Covert markers
You're very welcome, Happy to help out. Older section of the cemetery and pretty quiet but for airplanes out of Long Beach airport. They even trimmed around the markers - something often needed as the rotation seems determined by a dart board.

Christoph Heindel
I am married to Ken Heindel, date of birth 1920, yes he is in good health. I drove Ken up to York two weeks ago and with your help and others I was able to find the little cemetery in the corn field. But what a time we had. I spoke to a distant relative that said the little school house had just recently been torn down. In fact, he said his great, great grandmother taught in that little school. I felt that I had reached the end of this family and what comfort. Someone is keeping the little cemetery up, is that you by chance. By Christoph's grave marker I saw a Revolutionary War service marker. Do you know anything about that. Ken's daughter still lives in York be we live in Florida.

Wld. love any other info you have.

RE: My interpretation on the 'chalked stone' photo
You are very welcomed!
I do not believe those other people were correct in their statements! The Rules clearly state 'recent photographs'.
Unless they are living in the past, the 1960s (when the photo was taken) is not recent!
I also do not believe it was necessary to post in such a nasty way to you!
Find A Grave is supposed to be 'helpful' not 'hurtful'!
Please keep the memory of your Moms work & your relatives alive through Find A Grave!
I thought it was rather nice to be able to read the stone! The stone carver worked hard. & long to complete that stone for your relative! It was nice we were able to see what was originally stated!
And yes, I understand that techniques have changed over the years... People were told it was ok to chalk, shaving cream, etc to better help read worn stones. Now, that's not advised as the chemicals can damage the stones.
You can't scold your Mother for what she did back in the 1960s, AND PEOPLE SHOULD NOT SCOLD YOU OR ANYONE ELSE NOW,!!!

My interpretation on the 'chalked stone' photo
First of all, thank you for posting your relatives Memorials to Find A Grave! I am ever so great full to people who have taken the time to post Memorials I will never get a chance to see in person!

I am leaving this message because I was shocked at how abruptly another member(s) has(have) replied to your generosity! I had to search the Find A Grave "Frequently Asked Questions" (and yes, I had to search very hard to find ANY reference to pictures of 'Chalked Stones'! )

This is the sentence I located... "Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive. Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones."

According to my interpretation of the statement about the "chalked stones", your photo is allowed to stay on Find A Grave! You have given your Mother credit as the original photographer of the black and white photo taken in the 1960s! This 'chalking' was done about 50 years ago! It is NOT a RECENT photo!

Once again, thank you for sharing and caring to add your relatives photos to Find A Grave!

Chalked Stones
You Maude's be surprises to know that your memorial for Elizabeth Billings Heald has been the subject of discussion on one of the Find A Grave Facebook pages. It is against FG policy to post photos of chalked stones. Although you indicate in your profile that the b&w photos were shot years ago before such techniques were recognized as being detrimental, you should remove the photos. Including the transcription in the memorial provides the information. Thank you!

RE: Nathaniel Adams inscription
You're very welcome! I've found several discrepancies between the Vital Records to the Year 1850 book, and the gravestones (including a wrong first name!). It may be that the actual Vital Records for the town have this information differently - or it could be mis-transcriptions. Oh well - we do the best we can with what we have, right? :-) I'm just pleased to be able to find as many legible gravestones as I have in Old Cemetery - there are a number of unmarked graves, and some fieldstone markers, too.

May I have permission to post the info and pics of Gregory and his family into my Family Tree Maker?

Thank you for your consideration of my request.

Thanks so much for your great photo of the cemetery plaque. I would like your permission to place it on the family tree. I know there are a lot already on ancestry but they do not give the name of the photographer. I always give credit to the photographer and to Find a Grave. Thanks.

RE: Charles Hobart Heald

Thank you so much for the reply and I have connected father and daughter. I like to be able to connect families.
This is the only photo of my Uncle and Aunt I find. I have many of my Uncle, but the only one of Charloise. They more or less stayed to them selves when it came to family. My Uncle Warren, Floyds youngest brother when to the ranch and saw him a few times, but I only remember seeing them once when I was very young. Kind of sad, and my husband and I were down in that area last year and we couldn't find were they are buried, I must check some newspapers and see if I can find some information on their obits.
My e-mail is:

Thank you again for your help.

Charles Hobart Heald

My uncle was married to Charles H. Heald's daughter. She was given the name at birth of Eloise Yvonne Blasingame Heald, but after her father's death her first name was changed to Charloise. I have just entered her on Find A Grave with a photo of her and my uncle taken probably in the 1930's or 40's.

Find A Grave Memorial# 90077999

Would like it if you could connect her to her parents. Thank you for your time, and I do have a copy of her birth certificate if you like.

Thank you so much for posting the Cheney resting places in Roxbury, MA.

I'm relatively new to this genealogy adventure and appreciate so much all the work others have done. As a result of others' work, I've uncovered 22 plus GGGrandparent couples who arrived between 1620 and 1640, including one Mayflower GGrandmother, Mary Chilton, just discovered this week. Somehow that information was never passed down.

I'm happy that you had family who preserved and passed down your history. Thank you again.

RE: Edward and Katherine Heald photo
I wish it could be clearer but it is quite dark with glaring window light right behind in a small area....PLUS, I'm not a professional by any means. I love the place their remains are....In this HUGE Mausoleum they have a separate small building with just cremated remains. I'm not sure why this small building and will some day remember to ask....but its SO peaceful and quiet with loads of artificial flowers for color.

If you have not, you should go to the web site for the Portland Memorial Mausoleum. Its amazing. Beautiful stained glass/marble/statues/water falls INSIDE etc. Its a huge place. A real treasure.
