Did you know ancestry purchased FAG in 2013?
I am a pluviophile, taphophile, genealogist, and good "cemeterian"!
I have completed surveying and photographed 3 small cemeteries (Spanaway Cemetery, Spanaway Lutheran Cemetery & Rainier Cemetery), and Fir Lane and do some background work. I also take pics on vacations now because it's addicting. Of course I have entered as many family as I can:)
I never say I'm perfect, so just drop a kind note if there needs to be corrections made or a picture retaken:)

Would there happen to be a map of the plots?
|Mr. Jean Coston||Betty Thompson|
It's a very good photo.
Why doesn't it show she died in 2014?
|Mr. Jean Coston||Betty E. Thiel|
I see in her list of siblings that
Betty E. Thiel Thompson is the same as
" " " Krones
|Mr. Jean Coston||Betty E. (Thiel) Krones or Tompson|
Excuse me for my errors.
I see by the tombstone, her last name is Thompson.
The obit in the T. N. T. dated Sunday, March 30, 2014 page B5, her last name was Krones.
Do have any info about her husband Lyle Krones?
I have made a memorial for her as Betty E. (Thiel)
Krones and linked her father and mother and her three
brother Arthur, Elmer and Edward to her father and
mother to her by way of parents.
If the cemetery has no record of Betty's husband Lyle
Krones, please let me know.
|William Pawling||Spanaway Cemetery|
I contacted you early in November regarding my Grandfather's cousin, George T Jewitt, who is buried in the Lutheran section of the Spanaway Cemetery. I appreciate the information that you sent at that time. I am wondering if you have mad a map of the cemetery that shows the locations of graves. If so, I would appreciate information showing the location of George T Jewitt's grave.
