RE: John G. Henderson Tombstone
Did you also notice that I put on other Pattons? I didn't know if you would want them but I entered them since I was there and had the camera. If you want any of them transferred to you, I can do that.

P.S. Venn
When I put in Edwin Venn in the "Begin a New Search" form it comes up okay in the search results listings.

Venn - Kelly Memorials
I didn't add either of the memorials but I did email them to you, so you should be able to print them from your email.

Edwin C. Venn memorial
You added a wonderful memorial for my great-uncle Edwin C. Venn (Spanish-American War)in San Francisco National Cemetery. For some reason, when I put in his name on Find A Grave, it says there are no results. I then have to just put in VENN and the list comes up. Could you please add that same memorial for another great-uncle (his brother-in-law)Patrick Thomas Kelly, buried in Vancouver Barracks Post Cemetery, Vancouver, Washington. I would like to get a print of that memorial but it comes up as a GIF file and it won't convert to a jpg.

George's memorial
Oh.. I forgot...

I'm not sure how familiar you are with F.A.G., but you can keep George's memorial up. Just edit the cemetery info to say "cremated, ashes given to family member"

Also, try researching the burial location of his wife. She may have kept his ashes with her and when she passed away had him interred with her.

Just a thought.

George Thomas
Unfortunately, it appears your ancestor was cremated and his remains given to a family member. Lincoln Memorial had records of having offered his mortuary & funeral services, but he was cremated, (which is done off property... probably the Crematorium Portland, mentioned in the obit on his memorial page), then his remains where given to a family member.

They did tell me he died of Nephritis (kidney disease).

I would suggest forking out the 20 or so dollars for a death certificate. If his cremains were interred in a different mausoleum, it should be recorded on that document. Otherwise, he may have been scattered. People think scattering is so romantic, but it is sad for lost family members looking for their ancestors. My Grandma & Granpa Brown were scattered and I hate that they have no grave.

Let me know if I can help you further.
