14 Apr 2017 - Worked on repairing gravestones.

Millie Brown Fackler's old stone has been detached from the concrete!! I fretted over this for months. How to get the concrete off? Finally, I discarded everyone's suggestions and went with my gut feeling. I used a hammer and nothing else. A few taps and the concrete just fell off--a little at a time. With each tap, the concrete shed itself from the limestone marker. Yay! I immediately washed the sections and then put the three pieces together with masonry adhesive. I am now waiting for it to dry.

Did more repair on three White Cemetery gravestones. I worked on Martha Fulcher Calvert, Elizabeth Fulcher and Sarah E. Sanders. These three are almost ready to take back to the cemetery

RE: Photo requests
You are so very welcome. Without people like you doing this for people like me who can't always visit these cemeteries, we could not keep our family lineage going. I for one am extremely thankful. Thank you for what you are doing. 😊
