Hi Charles,

Thank you for posting the image for Sarah Watkins. I've done a lot of these "no headstone" images and know how much work they take. I'm grateful for the effort.

RE: Westminster
Hi Charles: Nice you have a "in" with the ladies at Westminster.

I don't have a subscription to Billiongraves, but am able to find things anyway. There have been quite a few memorials entered in Westminster, so it may be helpful in finding some that you are looking for. Unfortunately, I entered whole lawns when I was working there, so you will have to walk the lawns if I entered a location. I think I entered locations at that cemetery, because that was before the crazy guy came on the scene. Westminster was the first place I worked. There will be a few areas that I did later, that I didn't enter a location. Just message me on those and I'll see if I can help you out. Chris
