Bio and Links
I have always been interested in genealogy and there are always those of us who find it fulfilling to visit friends and family burial sites, from time to time. This is an excellent way of doing it without the travel. And if you do travel,you can find them easier when you have some information like you find here.

Anyone wishing to have a memorial transferred to them, need only state your relationship and fill out the edit with a request.Make sure to submit all corrections using the Edit tab. If you are a family member, I will typically transfer the memorial to you. You know more about the individual then I do. I just ask that if someone who is even closer to that individual reaches out to you, pay it forward and transfer the memorial to them! I welcome any new information that helps make my entries easier to follow, more informative, or to correct some error that I may have made.

PHOTOS: I try to take a photo worthy of the folks that were buried there. I know that sometimes the conditions do not afford that so if someone has a clearer, better photo, please feel free to add it. Notify me if you want mine removed and I will be happy to do so.

And, by all means, you may use any of my gravestone photos as I have purposely taken them for YOU.

I am especially interested in knowing/contacting anyone with knowledge of the family of Campbell. That would include members of the Cornell family with roots in Wapakoneta, OH or Lima, OH area.

Thank you.

RE: Harrold Bach, grave photo
Finally had a chance to go back to the cemetery. Weather was cooperative and I had some time to go.
Sorry no Celia is listed as being buried at Floral Gardens. I looked at site where Harold is buried and then went inside and looked in the book. She is not in either place.

Maybe get a copy of her obit if there is one or maybe it might say on death certificate.

Transfer: Nellie Wilcoxen 183923890
Hi -

I created this memorial based on burial records for City Cemetery in South Bend, IN.

I've since discovered that another memorial exists, but you have it under the wrong cemetery. Nellie is buried in South Bend City Cemetery, not Mishawaka City Cemetery. I am transferring to you... you can keep one, delete the other however you want... just so she is listed under the correct place of burial.

Schatzberg grave requests
I need the specific location of the grave requests. It's a 93 acre cemetery!

Duplicate = Laura Meyer
I will remove my memorial, but remember, per find-a-grave, the only REQUIREMENT for creating a listing is having a burial location entered within 30 days. If that does not happen, the member is required to delete the memorial. To move a listing later to the correct cemetery makes it the duplicate and if done repeatedly causes the member to risk having their account revoked.

The find-a-grave site is for recording final disposition data, not for documenting deaths.

Please be careful. Looking at your listings you have a large number of burial unknowns. They are subject to deletion in the new site recode, and excessive violation of the rule requiring disposition data to be entered has caused many people to have their accounts removed.

Lee R Wyatt Sr.
There was an older Lee R. Wyatt that died in Gd. Traverse also, but that was 1953.

I appreciate your concern, but I feel it is misplaced. I pay for the right to use these newspaper obits. Find A Grave knows they are there. Just wanted to let you know so you did not transcribe any more obits needlessly.

RE: Daniel Price 70273696
I just took care of the photo request. At this time I'm leaving both photos up as that the newest is a screen shot instead of the actual photo. I will however delete the 2nd photo after the member making the request is notified that it's been fulfilled. Thanks for bringing this to my attention ~Shelly

Dorothy Cornell - Mount Olivet Cemetery
She buried in an "as you need a grave". No family around her.

Only about 25% of the graves have a tombstone. Nice to find one.

RE: Charles Reed 20571737
You're welcome.
I cant be 100% positive but I would say that he is buried there. I have seen other markers like his that have been moved by the mower and end up being broken or covered over somewhere else.
