Hello - Thank you for responding. I can forward you documents for review. I don't see your email address.

Joseph and Columbia Montgomery children
Good Day
I notice that you have six of their 8 children listed. You have not included Agnes Montgomery McCall Gravell who is buried at Oakland. Agnes' 1935 obituary states that her sister Addie Montgomery was "called to Cleveland by the death of her sister." Agnes is also included with the Montgomery family in the 1860 Census. Is there a reason that she is not included with the list of siblings?
Thank you very much

Old and New Overlook
Hi again Paul,

I have just finished an FYI list of who I have buried in the New Overlook. Would you care to have a copy of it? If so is there an email I can send it to?

RE: success
Well, by my calculations (from my photos) there are approx 79 names on stones in the new cemetery with about 68 actual burials. That would mean that there are about 100 memorials that are in new that are actually in old. As to the number of members I do not know how many different ones there are, short of clicking on each one.

Guess I just need to construct a form edit of sorts that explains the two different but same named cemeteries.

Well, I have finally finished moving "my" memorials over to Old Overlook.
What that leaves now is to send edits for the rest. Don't know how well that will go. Any suggestions for a winning message that they can't say "no" to?

edit declines
hope the decline edits came through correctly. Wasn't sure which reason to select, figure it wouldn't matter too much as I deleted the memorial.

RE: Overlook old/new cemetery
Well, I think you are absolutely correct. They should be two separate pages. That being said, I am going to delete my copies of the memorials that you already have in "Old". I am also going to, over the next few days or so (when my internet allows) transfer my memorials from "new" to your "old" page. Not sure how one does it but maybe adding something to the "info" of Overlook Cem. explaining the side by side cemeteries would help.

Keep your fingers crossed that this goes smoothly!!

RE: Overlook old/new cemetery
Hi Paul,

I know what you mean. It does certainly appears to be two separate cemeteries.
When I decided to photograph Overlook I realized the Find A Grave page was a bit confusing. It wasn't until I got there that I realized the number of stones did not match the number of names on the memorial page, and that just down the road was the rest of it.
It appeared that whoever started the page decided to combine them as one. When I added names I just figured I would follow suit. (I was not aware until recently that you had started your page for the Old cemetery). Not quite sure what to do here. Do you know any of the history of these two cemeteries? Does the town consider it one or two?

Overlook old/new cemetery
Hi Paul,

We seem to have some duplication of some memorials. It also seems that you had started a page for "Old Overlook Cemetery" that only has your memorials in it. Those memorials are also in the Overlook Cemetery.
I do have one solution that may work for this situation. If you would be willing to change the burial location of your memorials in Old Overlook to the Overlook cemetery page I would be happy to delete all of the duplicates that we have. I am not family to any of these people, merely the photographer of the cemetery.

Let me know if this works for you.
