RE: George Harvey # 46974524
You wrote:(By the way, you have two entries for George and your entry for Elizabeth is a duplicate).

Two different markers for a George in East Lawn, with slightly different birth dates and different inscriptions! Likely the same person, but if it is he sure turns up in a lot of places! Best I can do is document any marker for which there is actual, physical evidence. The other strange thing is the death dates on the markers are (Sorry -- I don't have it in front of me) about three years before the date of death in the Newspaper article. I tried to find the original of the story this afternoon, to see if it was mis-dated in the transcription, but no luck. But if the East Lake George(s) are different people, then at least one of the Elizabeths likely is, too.

I have a memorial for Elizabeth, and a M. Elizabeth. I have not found a marker for Maria Elizabeth, although there might be one. Elizabeth is on the stone with "one" of the Georges. M. Elizabeth is on her own marker. Dates are slightly different. One and the same? Who knows.

Where's the duplicate for my Elizabeth memorial? (There's no other Elizabeth in East Lawn -- and I've seen and transcribed the stone for the memorial I've created. Is the duplicate somewhere else?)

So for the moment I'm just going Old School Find A Grave -- documenting grave markers. I'm happy to cross reference the markers as facts become available (my fantasy explanation is that squabbling adult children, each with an imprecise grasp of their parents' birth and death dates, erected competing grave markers.)

Do let me know what you discover!

Thank you for transferring this and other memorials. I didn't ask, but I am pleased to be able to care for them. I'm on the board at the cemetery and three of us are working on a history of the families buried at Calvary Cemetery. The good news is that there will always be someone who will take care of the Memorial for years to come!

Who would I contact to find out which family members are buried in a particular area? There appears to be about 8 different family members in this one area, but one four year old doesn't appear on your list. Thanks for all you do.
