Mary B. Lanier Gelbke
Dear Van, Thank you so much for taking photographs of my memorials in Metairie cemetery. I never received a notice that a picture was added. In the case of Mary B. Lanier Gelbke, you validated that Mary was indeed buried here (Section 74, Lot 15) although their are no names on the tomb (except Gelbke). Is their any way you could find out who else is buried in the same plot? I prefer to be contacted via email as opposed to public message as I may miss it. Sincerely, Linda Robin

Walter J. Stauffer

Thanks for making the memorial for Walter Stauffer #90890846. I was hoping to add a passport photo I found of him but the memorial has reached the maximum five photos allowed. Would you please be able to delete one of the gravestone photos so I can add a picture? I noticed the same grave photos are on his wife's memorial as well.

Thanks you so much for adding the two photos for the burial place of Julius Arnold Pohl. I appreciate your quick response and great photos.

I appreciate you posting a photo of the cemetery where Julius Pohl (Memorial # 169150883) is buried. By any chance do you have a photo of where he is actually buried that shows a marker for him? If so, I would appreciated you posting it as well.
Thanks for all the work you have done to make Find A Grave more complete.

All Saints Mausoleum
Hi Van, I guess it's back to the drawing board for me then. I really thought that this was the correct mausoleum. Thank you for taking the time to research this. I greatly appreciate it.

All Saints Mausoleum
Hi Van, I was worried about that. She has been a very elusive person. Last names that we have known her by are Pagola, Boudreau(x), Reyes, and Wulff. We're pretty sure she had been interred in a mausoleum though.

All Saints Mausoleum
Thank you for the reply, to the best of our knowledge, she passed away in Oct. to Nov. 1984 in Miami. But is buried there in New Orleans.
