Memorial Park in Memphis

You have a request at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

Skinner/Portland Evergreen Cemetery
Hi Art,
I have added a headstone photo for Grace Skinner. If you would please put in photo requests for each of the other Skinner family members that you want, I will be happy to add them for you. There are about 26 others just in the plot where Grace is.
Have a Great Weekend
Sincerely, Ron Kinney

RE: Thanks
No problem. I like going in there...every once in a while. I am really into history, and Never in my life have I seen a place quite like Happy Hollow. Timothy Skinner's epitaph "blessed are the dead who die in the lord" was actually the lest creepy one that was legible. Some of them are pretty wild (the place is actually supposed to be haunted too...maybe the creepy ones are the reason).

Avery Skinner
Upon checking further there are already two memorial for Avery Skinner in the Mapleview Cemetery. One memorial has several photos. There are also several other Skinner's that have duplicate memorials. I hope that this helps.

You might want to read this page about Timothy Skinner : When the snow clears in this area I'll go to the Maple view Cemetery and take a photo of Avery's gravestone. Betty Jane

Skinners in Lord's Cemetery, Westmoreland, NH
I fulfilled you request for Timothty Skinner. I see in your notes you'd like any other Skinners at Lord's. I found only one other and that is Timothy's wife, Ruth, who died July 2, 1849 at age 78. If you create a memorial for her, request a photo and I'll get the message.
