Memorials #63139394 and #63139408

At some point, you'd posted a picture of a marker on memorial #63139394 for Ernest Schultz. But his wife's memorial, #63139408 is lacking that picture. Could you load up the picture to Minnie Blubaum Schultz' memorial? I've already requested that her memorial be linked to her husband's. I saw that you are interested and are family to the Shultzes and Blubaums. I was researching Ernest and Minnie Schult's daughter Virginia Shultz Davis. She had married my great-uncle Charles L Davis. Both are buried in Arlington and I wanted to connect her to her family. Thanks and Merry Christmas.

Arthur Tillman Bruce
the picture of Arthur Bruce looks like my father-n-law Edgar Eddie Jones(buried at Antioch cemetery-Haskell co, OK). I know they are cousins. I don't think I have a picture I could locate of my father-n-law. He didn't like to take pictures. Maybe I can find one???maybe??
You have a great day

RE: Jasper Newton Headstone @ Panter Cemetery
You are very welcome. I enjoy visiting the cemeteries and helping genealogists get the pictures they need for their family trees and to help with proof of burial. Thanks for sharing the info on Jasper Newton and family.
