Aurelia Billings
Ben,
Thank you for transferring Aurelia to me. I see her husband's stone is missing from beside her.
I noted you have asked for some changes in a couple of memorials. I couldn't see what you suggested so I thought I would let you you know what I have.

Thank you for the information. Now I have to determine if they are really really buried at that cemetery or really in Limington.

I've added your marker photo to his Coffelt Database record to document place of burial. Your photo will be uploaded tonight to http://www.CoffeltDatabase.org.
Thank you for helping us to remember him properly ...

Finding my Aunt Laura
THANK YOU, Ben for locating and photographing my Aunt's resting place. It was a welcome email after a week of Irma prep and waiting. She came in last night and we were blessed with only wind, rain and a huge drop in temperature. Thank you for your time and dedication. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Take care.

Thank you so much for the photo you uploaded of Mary Anderson's grave in Evergreen Cemetery.
I have been searching for the parents of Anton Anderson (buried at Forest City). Her name was Mary and his father is known only as "J". a sea captain from Sweden.
This one, unfortunately, is not "my" Mary. I appreciate all your efforts to bring these people out of the shadows.
