Purifoy Cemetery
Hi John,

Claimed a request for a stone in Purifoy Cemetery on St Delight Church road out of Bridgeton.
I notice that you added most of the memorials and photos. Am I right in assuming that you probably photographed all the visible stones when you were there?
If not I will take a run out and see if I can find it.
The specific request is for William Hardy Whitford

Look forward to hearing from you again.

The photo posted by you for her (Queen Anne Cem., Fountain, Pitt Co. NC) is in error. She is my grandmother, the wife of Julius Patrick Killebrew. I don't know who this couple is, but they are certainly not my grandparents. Connie K. Fisher

Should have had my stopwatch running!
Wow, that was really quick! Thank you so much! I don't live there so when I missed a grave it would be another year before I could go back.

memento mori

Many thanks for the photos of Reginald Disosway's gravestone and of those of his wife and daughter. They look great and are much appreciated.

However, the one you added on William J. Disosway's memorial is actually for William H. Disosway (#14883686), which is a different person. Could you please, therefore, remove it from William J. Disosway's memorial and add it to the right one?

I am adding photo requests for several more Disosways in this cemetery. If by any chance you had the chance to add photos for them too, that would be great.

Thanks again,

John, thank you ever so much for the great photo of Nancy's headstone. I too, was a Hospital Corpsman in the US Navy. I retired as a Chief in 2004, in Washington, DC. You are really helping out everyone on FindAGrave with all the work you do. Again, thanks for the photo!

Thank you John for the pictures of these 2 persons. I have been waiting for them for a while. They are distantly related to me. Do I have your permission to use them in my family tree? You will get credit for them.

Thanks again.

Thank you for taking the pictures of the Hadder and Pate markers. The women are my aunts, and I have never seen any of the plots. Although I grew up in Craven County, I now live in Asheboro and am disabled. So I probably would have never gotten the photos without your help. Thank you again.

Jerry and Roger
Eileen Simpson Haddock,
Hey, so nice to have you helping out again, thanks so very much. I added a memorial for Johnnie based on your photo and linked to Eileen, when you get a chance if you can add to his memorial that would be appreciated. I have been so busy working Rogers side since I got a bit of a lull on My side. We recently were in Hawaii and I took over 1000 pics of graves at like 9 different cemeteries and just recently finished uploading the ones that didn't have a memorial already or a pic. That's hard work when you are trying to get that many folks uploaded as soon as possible. Anyway, thanks again for all your help, so appreciated.

Thank you!
Hi John!

Thank you so much for providing these pictures! I am working on my family tree and I like being able to attach a picture of the headstone if I can. Thank you for being a part of this project!

Thanks a Bunch!
