RE: Bennett
Good news, of a sort. I really wanted to find the exact location, and one of the employees sent me a diagram that shows the nearest marked graves to Melvin Bennett. I shouldn't have any problem finding it now. I will probably have it done by Sunday afternoon.

I realize it won't be the same as seeing a headstone, but at least it will show the place where he is buried.

Thank you for your kind words. It helps keep me going!

Best regards,

I can't believe this . . .
Both of your photo requests that I claimed in Inglewood (Sarah Sullivan and Harold Vrooman) turned out to be unmarked. That makes 3 in a row for you, and I am very disappointed. Particularly for Sarah Sullivan, as most of the graves in the plot where she is buried are marked (Acacia Slope) but whenever I go out to the location where Harold Vrooman is buried (K Plot) it seems that about half of them are unmarked.

So I will be fulfilling your requests with photos of the area, with flowers showing the exact spot.

The other request I tried to find last week (Melvin Bennett) I still have not been able to determine the exact spot. There are so many unmarked graves in the area where he is buried, and no visible navigational number plugs, that it has proved to be quite a challenge.

I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome. I am always disappointed when there isn't a marker.

Best regards,

Do you intend to have James Peder Christensen as a spouse of Clara? If so, do you have documentation as to why? Please advise.

I've sent you an edit to include the exact location which is D Plot, lot 2143. I am going to try to find the exact location of his grave, even if it is unmarked. It is a pretty area, with a long hedge to the west and a gentle slope going toward the east. The problem is, there are very few navigational number plugs showing in the ground for me to get every close to the spot. I've been told there must be a lot of unmarked graves in this area, which makes it more difficult, because if I knew where the nearest MARKED grave was, I could come pretty close to finding the location.

I'm going to try one more time to find it! Maybe on Saturday afternoon.

Check with the office today and they are saying that they have no record of this person. If you are sure that she is there let me know and will check with them again.

I have sent you an email with more info than you need, probably. What you have looks good. :-)

Sure. It will take me a little while to dig what I have out, but I'll check your add ons.

Hi. I did a little research on Albert. It was one of my relatives that everyone thought was related to him, but I was never able to connected him. If you would like the information I have I'd gladly send it to you so you could add it to his memorial. Let me know. Thanks!
