Tom Evans Cemetary
Hello. I am LouRitta Evan's Great-grand-daughter. She died not long after my grandfather was born and he, the following year married Eliza Jane Hurst and took her to Olkahoma, then on to Colorado where I was born. I've been living in TN for 13 years and just this last month located LouRitta's grave (because grandpa Elmer (Monroe) had always called her 'Rittie'). It was only because of your photographs that we were able to connect her burial site to our family records due to the known death year and your photos on findagrave.
Thank you!
Just becoming a member today, how would I go about updating information on her site (I have her descendants (with access to photos of their gravestones in Colorado) and her ancestry on her mother's side back to the Revelolutionary War)?

Dalton birth order
Hey R.D.,
Martha Jane was the oldest. Her year of birth is listed as 1837, 1838, and 1836 on the 1850, 1860 and 1880 censuses. I favor 1836 as the correct year.
The next child was Louisa, born about 1838.
Then comes Perry who was born in Oct. 1839.
Then Elizabeth 1841.
Nathan P 1842
Barbary Mahulda 1845
Christopher Colby 1849
Harriet A 1850
Sarah J 1852
Mahala J 1854
Rose L 1856
James 1859.

Nathan P Dalton memorial number 99765933
Hey R.D.,
I thought I would explain why I submitted the name change request on this Dalton, as nearly everybody researching him has his name as Nathan Perry Dalton.
He was the son of Colby and Elizabeth (McGinnis) Dalton. He had an older brother named Perry, who was born Oct. 1839, date of death unknown.
Just about everybody who possibly could, including me for a while, has conflated Nathan P Dalton with his brother Perry.
They are clearly two different people as both of them are listed in their parents' household on the 1850 and 1860 censuses. There is no primary record that I have found that lists Nathan P's middle name as Perry. Somewhere back along the line, somebody assumed that it was Perry, and it has been copied over and over again by other people since then.
Perry was alive at least until 1910, as I have found him on the 1880, 1900, and 1910 censuses. I have yet to find a date of death for him.
If you have questions or comments, don't hesitate to ask.

There is another memorial for this person in a different cemetery that was made 2012. He is listed as being in Silver Brook Cemetery and there is also a headstone picture for him there as well. It appears to be the same headstone. Im not sure which maybe correct but wanted to make you aware.

RE: Calvary Cemetery, Los Angeles
You're welcome R.D!
I was just reading some of the notes between you and James(Romper90069). I'm glad the photos are taken care of. I did submit an edit to have the birth year corrected for PFC Robert Olvera. If the person managing this memorial doesn't correct the error, it should automatically correct after twenty one days!

Yes, they did have wonderful life, and very much in Love. He never let what happened to him sour his outlook. I have many cousins, but he was my favorite. Yes, he certainly was a Hero.

RE: Memorial 65744793
I just got their burial locations and we will get this done. Thank you for doing this and allowing us to hone these heros!! James

RE: Memorial 65744793
Sir, The dates on this memorial make the person 13 yers of age. I did write to Linda whom I have worked with along with another person who does most of the requests at Calvary and between us, we will get this corrected. If needed we will contact you to move the funeral photos to a correct memorial. We want to get this right in his honor and the fellow hero buried next to him. James

The photos and edits you sent on this memorial can't be the correct person. This kid was 13 when he died. Doubt he was killed in Korea....James

you posted a picture of him on his memorial #159407374 are you related to him? I am seeing if I can find a family member to see if they would fill out the paperwork for a marker of his service so his grave will be marked
