RE: William Cullen
Sure! I stumbled across a trick for shooting those "tarnished" markers - use the flash and take photos from several angles. One of them usually turns out pretty good and then I can photo shop it to bring out the names even more clearly. Those markers really test my patience though, even for Wm Cullen I had to take about 15 photos. Jim

duh! Ethel May Halls
I forgot the last part. Jim S seems to gladly transfer memorials so you could ask him for a transfer and then do your own merging. Jim

Ethel May Halls
Hi Tony - I claimed your photo request for Ethel and started to work on her photos and found that a memorial existed before yours - #6464552 - that Jim Seidelman created. That one has a crypt photo. I'm going to post a long shot to it. Also I'm posting a close up and long shot to Frank Layton Halls memorial - he's next to Ethel (husband?).

RE: Sparling Family at Hwd Forever
Hey, Tony!

No, not relatives, just fulfilling a photo request, but wanted to offer additional pics if helpful.

Honestly, the Find A Grave community has been so helpful to me in my family history quest, I'll do just about anything to give back - seemingly just like you!

Happy to meet you.

Sparling Family at Hwd Forever
Hi there,

I just added photos of the Sparling family plot at Hollywood Forever, along with photos of their individual headstones.

Further, there was a request for a photo of "Maria Margaret" Sparling (1885-1917); I found a picture of a "Margaret M." Sparling with dates of 1886-1917, I'm guessing this is the correct person.

Finally, I have pictures of two other Sparlings buried near the family plot:

Raymond W. Sparling (1887-1956) and
Margaret Sparling Kingman (1909-1980) with her husband, Kenneth Kingman.

Please let me know if you would like these other photos as well.

Frank Curry
You do get around! I searched and searched for Mr Curry today but all I found was a suspiciously empty spot where his marker should be. We both know what that means - either no marker or a sunken marker. I'm going to post a photo of the general area with an arrow to show the approximate spot. Hope this finds you well! Jim

Added by Jim Davis on Jul 12, 2016 5:34 PM

Hey Tony, Long time since we connected and trust this finds you well and still graving.

I went to Rosedale for the first time today. Go figure the first 10 photos I took were already done by some guy TLS. He gets all over the place.....LOL

Just wanted to take a moment to send my best regards...James

Thank You !
Thank you for transferring infant Terry Twombley's memorial page to me. I truly appreciate that you were able to add a photo of the headstone as it helps validate the info I learned from my mom before she died last year.

Take care !

Carolina Louisa White 1883-1961
I was in hopes that you would turn over the memorial for Carolina Louisa White to me, as she is my Great Grand Aunt…..

I have been researching our family line since 1997 and would love to manage her account… We have a collection of her newspaper articles, postcards, letters, magazines, and records….

And myself and a cousin of mine are planning a trip to Italy to visit her final resting place.

So I really hope you will allow me to manage her memorial, as we are her family….

RE: Claudies Dowell
I assume you the person who took the photograph of the headstone. I appreciated seeing it. Are you related to Claudies or a kind volunteer? I recently found out I am related to the baby and was very thankful someone cared to sponsor the grave. I will be happy to accept the transfer if you still want to.

RE: Hollywood Forever
I've been reviewing old copies of Holly Leaves. Their obits are usually more informative than say the LA Times. Glad to pass them along. Thanks for all you do for the Hollywood graving community.
