RE: Rena/Irene Blackwell and Blanche Carleton
I think with genealogy that I am rarely convinced of anything. This is what I could find.
1870 Census Irena Blackwell
1880 Census Irena Blackwell
1920 Census Irene
1930 Census Irene

Rena Blackwell on Nina Ardell Pruitt's marriage record to Floyd Chowning

Simon Carlton and Rena Blackwell were married Wednesday night. - Bedford Lawrence Mail, Friday, October 26, 1888

Maybe her birth name was actually Irena? It may be best to list all possibilities and let people decide for themselves. What do you think?

Oneita (Jewell) Speer

Why are the stones that read 'Dad' and 'Mom' upside down from the headstone?

Anna Becker Speer
Can't remember if I may have contacted you before. Thought you might like to link Anna to her parent's and two siblings. My mother was raised by Anna's parent's, and I knew her mother very well. Her mother's memorial is 55351069, and the father's is 55350808.
Best regards.....Hal

Dorothy Campbell married a widower named Harold Brandebury in 1942. He had a son Donald by first wife, Maurine Briggs, who died in 1941. Donald is buried in Santa Fe National, but the rest of the Brandeburys are also in Sunset...Block 6.

I cannot determine if Harold & Dorothy had any children of their own as none of the obituaries are online.

RE: Aylett and Catharine Houston
You're so welcome. I'm happy to do it. The cemetery is a few miles from my parents home, so I'm sort of familiar with it. :)

I claimed this memorial for a photo and then noticed you had claimed Leonard at the same site.
I will unclaim mine so you can do them both while you are there.
