Grave stone, Springfield Cemetery
I just tried to request a photo of the gravestone of Orianna P Leathe Buckland in Springfield Cemetery and received a message that the memorial could only have one photo. You took the photo of the entrance gate of the cemetery. If you go again would it be possible for you to take a photo of the gravestone and send it to me for my records? I have just learned that Orianna Leathe was my great-aunt, sister of my grandfather who was the natural father of my grandfather who was adopted as a infant.
Thank you for anything you are able to do.
I will also be writing to the person who owns the memorial record.

Emily I. Ritter
Hello, Helen & Joe --

Thank you for adding the records of the Ritter family. I believe the one for Emily I. Ritter is incorrect, as shows an original death record of 1904 rather than 1934.

Hello Helen,
Would you mind if I used your photo of Springfield Cemetery (Massachusetts) on my family tree, with attribution to you? Thank you very much for your consideration. Gwen

I noticed your photo of the mass grave enclosure. I couldn't find this marker and the nice lady at the Springfield Cemetery pointed me to where the mass grave is, but there were no stones or enclosure there. I'm wondering where you found it because I'm thinking she showed us the wrong spot. Thanks in advance.

Since I wrote you the first time, someone has deleted your entry. Do a search for the name that you entered. If you see it, see if it is in the right place. If you do not see it, then add it again and put them in the correct FNC in Bushnell...LMK if you need further...
