RE: Photo
Sorry, I think you did ask that question.
I forgot to answer it. You may use the photo any way you would like.

Harvey Telford Memorial Photo
Virginia:

Thanks much for taking and posting the photo of Harvey Telford, much appreciated.

I notice you also posted a photo of his parents' shared marker on his memorial: Josiah Telford 1821-1884 and Nancy Telford 1821-1882 ; also in Gilead Cemetery.

If it is not too much bother, could you post that photo on their Findagrave memorials: #'s 85286407 and 85287128?

Best, Barry

Joseph Hanlein at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi! I need the burial Section and Lot Numbers in order to take a photograph for you. This cemetery's staff does not help photo volunteers, and the burial location is not available anywhere else.

Phone: 708-366-1900
E-mail: deborah.bluck@foresthomecemetery.net

Also, the burial plot you provided (Grave #326) is incomplete, and consequently prevents your photo request from being fulfilled.

Last year I fulfilled over 450 photo requests at this cemetery after the burial location was provided.

Thank you!

Ace

P.S. I tried to look up his burial location at the local library, but I could not find his name in the list of burials for this cemetery.

Good afternoon Sir/Ma'am. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials, and the information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request. Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck! Ace

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year I successfully completed 200 photo missions at just Forest Home that had the grave location information provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year I have victoriously concluded 900 photo missions with 150 triumphs already in 2014.

Reminder for Joseph Hanlein
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the complete grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! The plot location for the grave in the memorial for him is incomplete (no section #).

Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Valentine Crue, Crown Hill Cemetery, Madison, NE
It appears that this may be an unmarked grave.

I was able to determine that Valentine died on 7/5/1906 at the age of 77y7m30d.

FYI,

Doug
