I meant to send you an email regarding the Irwins but some things came up and I haven't had the time. The Irwins (at least my great great grandmother's generation) came from VT. Her siblings moved to various parts of New England including ME, NH and MA. Esther (Thomas' wife was born in MA). I will add his parents but it might take me a couple weeks.

RE: Watson
Thank you for the information. I added the grave in an attempt to obtain more information about Thomas or to see if there was a gravestone present for him. My interest in Thomas lies in the fact that his wife Esther Irwin is my great great grandmother's niece. I am trying to find out anything I can about her (Esther) and her daughter (also Esther), as well as her siblings Frank Edwin Irwin Jr. and Merrill Irwin (anything that can help me glean more about the Irwins).

I'll just note in the memorial that the grave is unmarked.

Can you add a memorial for each of Thomas' parents since you have the photo of their grave (or I can and request photos). Either/ or.

RE: Cooley
That would be great! I would like to know how many spaces are there in the plot that are filled and those buried there if possible. Thank you so much I appreciate your time and efforts.

RE: Cooley
Cora Elizabeth Cooley Ross was born on October 14, 1885 in Richmond, Virginia to Daniel and Leonora Frances Smoot Cooley Hazlett. Cora died Sept. 1, 1955. Leonora was also born in Richmond, Henrico County, Virginia on April 24, 1864 - Dec. 26, 1928. Daniel Cooley was born on June 20, 1840 - August 18, 1899. Daniel was born in Bingham, Somerset, Maine. I don't know where you came up with those dates??

RE: Cora Elizabeth Cooley Ross
I understand. Is there a specific section, lot and space number for her? So in other words she is in an unmarked grave?

I made a request for a photo of Cora E. Cooley Ross headstone. Her memorial# 109095359. Instead you added a photo of Daniel Cooley?? If you would explain why.

RE: Request to Post Photo
Thank you so very much! Hooray for Joy Allaun for thinking outside the box. My husband and I have adopted and loved many stray dogs over the years, and almost all lived to ripe old ages. Right now we have two who are over 15 years old. We have kept the cremains of the ones long gone (plus a parakeet) because we want our ashes buried with them in some way. I really like Ms. Allaun's idea of a private mausoleum, if I could find a cemetery that would allow it. Hopefully I'll have time to research what Oklahoma (my home) laws and local cemetery restrictions allow. Maybe I can find a pet cemetery that will allow inurnment of people.

My sons have kept the ashes of their pets (5 dogs and 2 cats so far) as well.

Sorry to ramble, but I got so excited when I saw what Joy Allaun had done!
