RE: Hello, aunt-in-law!
Hi, Taed.
I am on here for the first time in awhile. I appreciate your VERY kind offer, and would be grateful if you could go ahead and do as you sug-gested. I go in spurts with genealogy.
I visited some graves over the weekend which prompted me to look up some things in F-A-G.
Again, I thank you for linking me to your Ancestry page.
Tell Suz "Hey" for me & that I love her.
I hope to meet you someday.
Aunt B

I feel like an idiot because I thought I did all of block 26 today, but it seems a glance at the requests had me mistake the '39' part of Stephen's grave location for the '29' of the other Litwornia request and I assumed they were the same number, so I failed to get his. Will be sure to do it on my next trip!

I don't mind others adding my photos to different pages, but as it happens that was my next step after I finished today's round of uploads!

Thank you for your comment. Riley was a good friend of my great granddaughter. They knew each other at Southeast Polk High School.

RE: Memorial for Matthew Flores
Thank you for pointing that out. I didn't realize he had a cenotaph in Santa Clara, CA. I have added both pictures of him to that memorial. Were you the one who suggested the edit to his middle name and place of birth on the Massachusetts memorial? I was having a hard time finding that information until I saw the changes to it. I went and suggested those changes to the cenotaph memorial too.

I'm glad I could help.

RE: Thank you!
I just went back and read Mr. Carr's memorial: There is no headstone with his name, his grave is probably marked with a fieldstone. There are graves in the oldest section at the top of the hill that have fieldstones for markers.

I actually took some precautions for the walk yesterday. A week ago, I did a minor grave search and was attacked by chiggers at Bella Vista Memorial Gardens. Hardly even walked in the grass at all--but I sure paid the price! There are quite a few stones at Dughill that are nothing but nubs--their data and comfort are long gone. I have found second wives buried next to their first husbands before; there are a number of connected families over there. If there's any other name I could check for, do let me know. The weather is perfect for an extended search.

Beatrice Rumphrey
I went back to Oakwood and there is no marker for Beatrice. I double checked the Monroe County Cemeteries records and "ashes" and "shared plot" describes her location.
Sorry I don't have good news. I'll leave your request up until I hear from you.

RE: Rumphrey
You're welcome.
I see you have a request for Leonard's wife. I checked with Monroe County Cemeteries. They have her listed as sharing the same lot, meaning there may not be another gravestone.
I always look for spouses when I take pictures and didn't see one today, however all the gravestones in that area are flat and maybe I just missed it.Or it may be buried under grass, I'll check but don't hold your breath.

Great work Taed. I have added the link in the real memorial to allow people to follow it to the infamous memorial. I'm really interested in his first wife. I assume this isn't the same wife he died married to... Happy to hear this wasn't an internet hoax. Sounds like quite the character.

RE: Herman Harband
Both stones say he was born in 1918 and given how unique this name is, I'm inclined to believe its the same person. If you find where the "funny" stone is, I would love to know. I believe it exists or did exist, probably in the New York area, but have no idea where.

Added by Shmilybrandon on Aug 27, 2014 12:03 PM

RE: Herman Harband
Did you notice though the same Jewish symbol on both stones.. I really do think they are the same person. Just wish I knew where the "funny" stone was actually located.

Added by Shmilybrandon on Aug 27, 2014 11:06 AM

RE: Herman Harband
I don't know anything else about him. I saw this stone as well and that is what peaked my curiosity. I started digging trying to find out where *that* stone was and had no luck, but ended up finding a Herman Harband. Part of me thinks it's the same person who was disgruntled and had the stone made up and later in life found happiness and remarried. I just wish there was a source for where that stone is... I need to see an actual picture in a cemetery. The picture has been floating around for quite a long time.

Let me know if you need further information and I will be happy to assist.

Edward Whitehouse
I tried to fill your request for Edward Whitehouse in Mt Pleasant. I added a photo with this explanation, (click on the photo). I hope it makes sense.
No monument for Edward Whitehouse in July 2014. There are four single unmarked graves between these two existing head stones. Edward Whitehouse's burial is to the left of the head stone on the right. (Pett but is entered as Pitt in the cemetery burial registry. Burials from left to right are Harris (existing monument), Butler, Smith,Whitehouse, Brown, Pett (existing monument). Da-390 is along the west fence line of the cemetery.There are many unmarked burials in this section of the cemetery.
Not great but this is the best I could do.

RE: Thank you!
You're welcome although I don't know which photo you're talking about. When I go to the cemetery, I try to take as many photos as possible while I'm there & I go to at least 3 different cemeteries here in Ottumwa. Glad everything was there for you.

RE: Mottashed and Whitehouse Requests
Hi Taed,
Yes, I saw that you had included the section and plot numbers and they were a big help - I always try to satisfy the requests where people have put in the work of locating the plot information first. In Canada, there are some pretty crazy privacy laws that can make it hard for nonrelatives to get information such as burial location so your initial detective work was great! However, if you want photos of unmarked plots I'm going to need more information. In the past, I have fulfilled requests for photos of plots without stones and I am able to do this if there are cones in the ground indicating plot numbers. In this case, Mount Pleasant has next to no cones so I am unable to accurately locate an unmarked plot. One way that I could possibly locate an unmarked plot is if I know the names on the neighbouring headstones. Then I can look for those names and then take a photo of the empty space beside the marked plot. What would help me out is if you could confirm with the cemetery office that the plots are unmarked and then ask them for the names on the neighbouring marked plots. The plots in sections DA and W will be hard because there are not a lot of headstones but I will do my best. The number for the cemetery office is 519-434-6504.
Good luck with your research,
