RE: Vernet John Collins - Hook and Ladder
This is the only Hook and Ladder Cemetery in the area that I know of. New Orleans is just across the river, so it's a quick ferry ride there.

Alexander Collins
It looks like you are a recently new member. Have you read he FAQ's? It would be a good idea to read them as there are specific rules to follow.
I am guessing that you have not read them so you are unaware that it is not okay to create duplicate memorials such as you created for Alexander Collins.
The FAQs also discuss copyright of photos as in if you do not have copyright (you haven't taken the tombstone photo) you can't just copy photos that someone else took.
You created a duplicate memorial for Alexander Collins and copied my pictures from the Laura Lynes Collins memorial. I would appreciate your deleting my photos off the duplicate memorial and deleting the duplicate memorial as well.
The FAQs also discuss that instead of duplicating memorials you use the SAC and request a transfer of the memorial. It also outlines that within the 4 generation rule (children, siblings, parents, great grand parents) relatives make request the memorial be transferred. It looks like Laura Lynes Collins would be your great grandmother if you wish to request transfer of her memorial but Alexander Collins is not within the guidelines.

Collins in Calvary Cemetery
Hi Becky,

I saw your photo request where you mentioned you spoke to the cemetery to confirm the burials, did you get the plot location? Calvary Cemetery is difficult to find locations without some idea of at least the section. Thanks.
