RE: Ossie and Joe Lamb
I appreciate your calling the office for the location. It is almost impossible to fill a photo request without that help from the requestor.

RE: Sarah Gibson
Hi Phil -

Success! As I suspected, the person who transcribed the cemetery records transposed the two Sarahs. The photo of the marker for your Sarah is now in place and I have sent a correction to findagrave for her plot number. Apparently it will take a couple of days for that edit to occur. The correct location is Ocean View-Addition C-Grave 097. The cemetery and marker are lovely and I hope one day youll be able to visit. Best wishes, Kathy

RE: Sarah Gibson
Hi - I'm glad you wrote. I went to the plot indicated on the findagrave entry and photographed the marker at that location for Sarah Gibson. I then claimed the request and fulfilled it with the picture I had taken. But when I double-checked it on the memorial page, I noticed the dates of birth and death were wrong. Yikes! It turns out there are two Sarah Gibsons at the cemetery and the wrong Sarah was at the plot number listed. So I removed the photo and attached it to the proper individual. I'm headed back to the cemetery this afternoon to see if your Sarah is at the plot listed for the other Sarah. If she's there, I should have the correct photo posted later today. If she's not, I'll have to go to the local genealogy society to see what they have in their records. The cemetery office does not deal with findagrave volunteers. Keep your fingers crossed.

If interested, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohcdrt/clecems then click on index, then WestPark, click on block DOS thru FK, scroll down until you find Fischers then remember their #, click on the name, then scroll page to their #/name to locate plot and info. Remember in the www site use the ~ not a -. You can check the full index for Fischers in other Cleveland city owned cems. Peace, Dan

RE: Melvin Pitman
Thank you for checking the master list. For evidence I was going off of the Tennessee Deaths and Burials Index 1877-1955. Perhaps like you mentioned it could be in reference to the train stop the body came off at. I also looked at the DC and it says Science Hill. I'm not from the area so I appreciate your knowledge of the local burial situation.

RE: Orval Thomas Lee
Thank you for your service and all you do for find a grave :) This was my grandfather's brother, I never got to meet him, they were orphans growing up. I unfortunately couldn't find him until I saw he had passed. Seeing the great photo is really nice! Take care!
