Harriet S Wemple Wood Photo Move Needed


I was just advised of a duplicate memorial I created in Ballston Spa cemetery in 2011.
Would you be kind enough to download and move your headstone photo to the memorial to be kept?

Please move photo from 71114981 to 71107052

Thomas: Thanks for updating their memorials. I also just submitted other edit for Catherine. The death date is actually her birth date. Bill Preston

Would you have any way to verify Sarah's middle initial. Stones does not look like an "L" as indicated in the memorial. Thank you very much for your help. Jeff Deyo

Dowd in Saratoga, NY. 2nd thanks
Thanks once again for the nice photo of Nancy Dowd's marker. And I noticed that you did indeed post a close up of the inscription for Charles & Harriet Dowd, which is quite legible. Really appreciate you doing that as well. Diane

Thank you so much for the picture of my great Aunt Minnie's grave. I know my Scottish relatives will appreciate it also as I share with them.

Dowd photos in Saratoga, NY
Thomas, thank you so much for going to the cemetery and finding Charles & Harriet Dowd's marker. I appreciate the nice photos of their footstones and large monument, but I can't read the inscription on the larger monument due to the bright sunlight on it. When I enlarge it, it just becomes blurry. I would like to confirm that the dates on their memorials agree with the marker. Would it be possible for you to go back in the next few months and take a close up of the inscription on a gray day to add to their memorials? With appreciation, Diane

Thank you
Thank you for attempting a photo for Richard MAHER in Greenridge. I am sorry for leading you to a no-grave-marker situation. It has happened to me, too. I will remove the Photo Request for Richard MAHER and add "no grave marker" to his FindAGrave memorial. Thank you again.

Thurston in Greenridge
Could you post the first photo you took of Margaret Thurston's grave #120644518, which shows a small uninscribed stone next to her gravestone, to Ernest Whealey F-G 124790068 ? Margaret Thurston was his maternal grandmother; I think that little stone is likely the closest thing to a memorial ever left for Ernest, who according to local newspapers was buried in Greenridge.
