I tried to send you the newspaper clippings on Cheryl's death, but the email address bounced back as invalid.

I added them to the entry. If they are unwelcomed there, reply with Cheryl's Find A Grave ID number and I'll remove it.

I'm not family, just happened on the articles while looking for some one else around that death date.

Bomanville Cemetery
Thank you for the photo of the Bomanville Cemetery in Ontario. If you are ever in that neck of the woods again and run across my 3 great-grandparents: "Martha (Toogood) Morris (1809-1885)" or her husband Levi Morris (1903-1886) I would dearly love a photo of their tombstones so I can finish out their memorials. Thanks again!

I was thrilled to find your photos. My husband & children are descended from Louise Ebling Bartholomy, one of John & Fredericka's 10 children. I have a photo of her, data from census records and Buffalo Directories but have had great difficulty locating graves. Thank you.

Louisa Couldock and children
Oh, may have just made me the happiest person in the world! Thank you so much for the photos of the markers for Louisa Couldock and her children! Her daughter Eliza is buried here in Salt Lake and I just happened to come across her headstone one day and decided to research a bit and see what I came up with. It took me nearly a year and a half before I could track some of her family down...Louisa was the most difficult for me. Thank you so much!!!

Clara Gese grave marker
Dear Mr. Tapson - thank you so very much for photographing my great grandaunt's grave marker at Woodlawn Cemetery in Buffalo. Not only was it wonderful for me to see it, but it provided bits of information about her parents that I had either not been certain of OR didn't know before now. No wonder my constant searches on Julius Gese have reaped no results in census and other records, for example. Evidently he had two names preceding Julius that I never knew about. This will help very much in my continuing genealogy adventures to find out more about my paternal ancestors. Thank you very much for the time and effort you used to gain photos for me. It is greatly appreciated by all my family members. Sincerely, B. Gese

Thank you so much for going to take the photo of great uncle Charles's grave. Do you know if anyone was buried next to him like a wife? To this date I do not know if he was ever married. Thank you again!

Lilly Seil Photo
Hi Mr Tapson,

I would like to thank you for taking the photo of Lilly Seil's grave me. It is so much appreciated. Did you happen to notice who was buried beside her at all? The cemetery would not give me any other information. If I can return the favor somehow, please let me know. Job well done.

Thanks again

James DAVIS marker photo
Thank you so much for the photo you took. I am a little confused though, because my records indicate he was born in 1846 and died in 1917 and that he was married to a Cecelia STEPHENS in 1874, and an Agnes JORDAN in 1886. I am wondering if this is the same James DAVIS. Thank you for your efforts. I will have to research this more.
