Memorial 149056867 Telford
You posted a tombstone photo to Memorial 149056867, which is the wrong tombstone for that memorial. No Telford is listed on the stone you posted. Please move this photo to the correct memorials.

If you live close and are willing to return to the cemetery, perhaps you can help me get a close up or an "eyeball view" of the correct Telford stone.

This "need first name" Telford is on the same stone as Charles Telford, a photo of which can be seen on Memorial 87479048.

Unfortunately, due to moss and distance, the given name cannot be read from the photo and only some of the date is decipherable. I feel that if someone took the time to view it up close, in person - the names and dates could be read.

Thank you in advance. Dawna

Photo request
Thank you, Dorothy, for taking photos of my grandparents gravesite. We live out of state and my mother, who has dementia, wanted to see what the headstone looked like today. It's very appreciated.

Thanks Dorothy for the quick response to my request for Gordon Smith. I wanted the wife too and you got her!! That was my request. Ron West had wrong location in so I couldn't be sure-but you snapped it. Wonderful. Her parents are in a fabulous resting place if you care to check it out.

Yes, I use the SBGS website when I want to find something out. Very helpful. I just can't figure out why some cemeteries will not allow photos or giving out locations except to relatives when there are so many places that have a locator online. ??????
