RE: The Chatels
Hi. :)

I apologize from the depths for this delay. :( I am having a devil of a time with this site since those video ads started. Add in some crazy time consuming real life issues and ... well ... I am so VERY sorry. I simply cannot get anything done; I took me forever just to post this short note. :( But that's my problem and I humbly apologize that it inconvenienced you. I hope you understand.

I hope your Thanksgiving was simply wonderful. :)

I've added the Chatels' photos from Holy Sepulchre.

I had been wondering about Mrs. Genevieve (Mr. Fred's wife) - there's a space next to him and Holy Sepulchre had no record of her other than that plot was reserved for her. I'm so very happy you've been able to find them all! :) How wonderful.

I just noticed a Mary Chatel @ Holy Sepulchre who died in 1964 - I realize "Mary" is a very common name but the Chatel Family was very fond of that name. Do you suppose she's related?

I'll have to call the office and get the location so we can clean the stone up a bit more - JUST in case she might be family. :)

You've been, oh, so VERY patient and kind and I graciously thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. :)

Thank You.

RE: Arthur Chatel and Others
Hi. :)

Absolutely NOT a problem. :) God tends to laugh a LOT over me. :D

I've only just logged into the site, today; I've been having a terrible time w/ this site since they added those video ads. It really cuts into my page loading time.

I already have the photos, so it's not a problem w/ weather cutting into the grave cleaning process. Whenever you have a spare bit of time.

But thank you VERY much for the update. VERY kind. :)

Later. :)

Hi. :)

It was a privilege to help honor the memories of Dr. and Mrs. Chatel at Holy Sepulchre in Southfield, Michigan.

The following Chatel family members were nearby:

George Chatel
S2 US Navy
World War II
April 19, 1927 - January 23, 1981

George A. Chatel
1892 -1964

Bernadette Chatel
1898 - 2000

Joseph Chatel
1865 - 1933

Mary Louise Chatel
1869 - 1957

If you make their memorials, I'd be more than happy to add their photos.

Please, let me know how you like to proceed. :)

Your Welcome, and yes you may use the photo for your family tree. I really do love that poem I found, it gives special meaning to my ancestors I visit whom I never got to meet.

RE: Frank Joseph Anderson
You're welcome. There is now a photo of the marker on the memorial if you're interested in seeing it.

What a present, it's like Christmas in June!! Thank you so much to you and Islington for the tsf. and on behalf of our family, past, present & future, we thank you for all your hard work and effort put into recording these graves. Much appreciated. Marianne

That's the crazy part of this memorial, the name under the picture is yours not Islington. So the memorial was placed by you and photo looks like it was posted by you. Or have I got my wires crossed as I can tell from your profile you note Islington takes the photos. Marianne

RE: Sheehan family - Mount Hope Cemetery, Toronto
Thanks Barb, I saw your info. about your friend taking the pictures but then your name appeared with the photo so thought there may have been a chance. Since they are not a relation would you mind tsf. the memorial to me on my Findagrave acct. #47659026, as I do have quite a bit more for bio etc. Or is there another way to request a tsf. Marianne

Sheehan family - Mount Hope Cemetery, Toronto
Hi Barbara: I know this is a long shot, but you have posted a picture of James Sheehan & his wife Hannah Keenan and their various children, born in this cemetery, and I would very much like to know if you are related. I have been searching for their daughter Kathleen Sheehan who married my 1st cousin Samuel Alex. Baker and wonder if you know anything more about the Sheehan family. Thank you. Marianne

RE: Marjorie
Hope you get it all sorted out! It's getting me confused! As for finding out who made burial arrangements, I would recommend contacting the respective mortuary/cemetery offices. Since I'm not a relative, I'm not sure if they would release that info to me. Even if they would, it's above my pay grade as a photo volunteer! :)

RE: James Hamlet
I was at Green Acres again and decided to go back to look around in the area where James is to see if I could find the other names you mentioned previously. What I found was just one row away from his grave. Take a look at two new memorials that I created and see what you think.
162807288 and 162807292

RE: James Hamlet
You are very welcome and may use the photo any way you wish. The marker appears to be bronze and what you see in the center is the bottom side of a bronze vase which can be pulled out and flipped over. The base of it is then attached to the marker. It's amazing that his is still intact after all these years because these bronze vases often get stolen. It was a nice warm day but soon temperatures will get into the triple digits! I may not be doing a lot of photos until fall comes around again.

RE: James Hamlet
Good news! There is a marker for James! When I returned today, a very nice man named David checked the records and told me that the location info given to me previously was incorrect and that I would never have found him where I was looking. He actually took me over to the grave site on a golf cart so that I could photograph the marker. Very much appreciated due to the 90 degree temp today!

Many thanks for the transfer of his memorial to me to manage and all the work you did arranging the transfer for me.

RE: James Hamlet
He is definitely buried at Green Acres because they require that photo volunteers request info in advance and pick up section maps at the office. If he wasn't buried there they wouldn't have provided any info. I need to a. verify I was in the correct area, b. get some names from other graves to use as a reference point. I got there just before closing time so by the time I got around to his section there was no one in the office to ask. If it's unmarked I can get a photo of the unmarked grave and some of the surrounding area and adjacent graves. I have taken many photos of unmarked graves at other cemeteries and it always makes me feel a little sad and disappointed when I encounter them. Although, I do try to take a little extra effort to pay tribute to them as well.
