We are retired and enjoying life in general. I volunteered to be part of FindAGrave as a direct result of the difficulty we had finding a family grave in our local cemetery. My hope is that anything I contribute will be helpful and in some way honor my family as well as others.|

|Lyn Jensen||RE: William Corr #90725934|
Thanks, and I'm glad to hear from a descendant of William Hugh Leslie Corr. (That means we both have Sarah Davis Crew Corr in our family tree.) From what you tell me, those unreadable stones you mention probably include Willam and Sarah Corr. So I guess you can say they've been "found" because they're there somewhere.
Unfortunately I can only think of two solutions, if the cemetery records shed no further light. One is (very expensive) dig up and ID the bodies (rule that out).
The only other thing I might suggest is "somebody" (yeah, that invisible elf "Somebody") give the gravestones a good pressure-washing and clear the ground around them, then take a rubbing (the crayon-and-paper trick) and maybe use a magnifying glass to see if any remaining inscription becomes more legible that way.
Have you done family research on Sarah Davis Crew Corr's ancestry? I have some bare-bones info on the previous two generations.

Thanks for your work on the Green Bay Cemetary. However, I'd like to ask a couple of favors, please. First, could you please post a photo for William Corr's grave?
Second, Mr. Corr was married to a woman named Sarah E. Corr. Before she was married to him, she was married to John W. Crew, also in Green Bay Cemetary. I also spot several of her children and other relatives in this cemetary. Her death cert. says she's buried here.
Unfortunately I can't find her record on this site. Might you be able to figure out where she's hiding?

glad to help!!! pls let me know if you need any genealogy help!!! :) k
This obit was probably taken from the Colville Examiner on chroniclingamerica.loc.gov. I have many of these posted on memorials. Anything from 1913 is no longer copyrighted. I do not have an Ancestry.com account and can not access what you have posted there. Usually I write in the photo caption the date of the newspaper etc but must have missed doing so with this one. It is also possible that it was sent to me by another contributor. I don't keep track of SAC sent but I don't ever recall having had someone send me an obit and ME adding it in the photos. That would not be a normal procedure for me. Sorry I don't have better records of where this came from but I would NOT have taken it off Ancestry.com.
