RE: S Tatro
Hi, Unfortunate.
As far as I can read the last line on the tombstone under the word "Aged" would be
60 years AND
I guess the line that was cut contained the number of months and days.
Thanks anyway! Regards, Jackie

RE: Memorial #15543472
I will definitely check that out! We've been wondering if there are two people with same name! Heaven knows there seems to be no unique names when you get to searching!!! (Like 1st names ("Barber, or Ransom, Thankful")! Thanks Carol

RE: Memorial #15543472
Thanx Carol, hated to ask you, but read F-A-G guidelines about what to do....leading me to contact you. I am working on one, so will keep an eye out for it. The DOB, etc, matches headstone in Glendora. Thank you for all your work on the cemeteries, I am happy to see people have memorials!

Memorial #15543472
Carol, some info brought to my attention caused me to do some extensive searching this morning regarding your memorial and another. Essentially duplicates. Although your memorial entered first, the other is of the correct location, with extensive info (linked to relatives). I ended my "research" reading Find-A-Grave info on what to do. In summary, Administration would favor the memorial that is correct/complete. I don't see a way for us (memorial creator) to merge memorials, apparently Administration can? Or you could delete your memorial and let the other stand.

To this end, this is what I found in about 3 (partial) days of researching...Weesaw Township records (which I searched personally) list only one Elizabeth Morley (I was checking to see if there were two); in their records she is listed at Glendora Cemetery. I found her stone there. There is no indication she is in the New Troy Cemetery location. (They had no children they named "Elizabeth", a son married an "Elizabeth" & I confirmed she is buried in Galien). SO rather than asking you to correct cemetery location, I will take off that picture (which is in Glendora). The question is, what you found that led you to believe she was at New Troy, which leads to what info photo-requester might have had leading to request photo of New Troy. From my end, that is the only portion of the solution I feel I can take care of. I will leave the memorial issue to you. Here are the two Memorial numbers: #15543472 and #47966319. Take care.

forgot to say.....Thank you for correcting the memorial regarding the cemetery. I located her via Weesaw Twp record in Glendora Cemetery, but had to walk-through to find her marker. Linda

RE: Elizabeth Morley
Elizabeth is located in the Glendora Cemetery also in Weesaw Twp, Berrien County, MI. Please alter this in the memorial to reflect her location. I do not yet know the plot number, as I have not contacted the township office with the location where I found her. I will contact you if we can determine the correct plot. I have attached the headstone photo to the memorial.

The Sheldons in my line came from Wisconsin to Kansas. Close though. My Michigan folks are Rosseters
