RE: Sophronia Goodell-Comstock @ White Lake Cemetery
HUGS to your Mom - Lisa. What a lovely way to spend time together for fresh air & a little exercise & outing for your Mom - so glad she enjoys exploring cemetery history too.

Thank you so much Lisa for locating her burial location next to her husband - I love your thoughtful tradition of the "flowers" to mark the grave. I'm not related but I wanted to fill in some blanks of this interesting family for others as I become attached to so many & their history. I read your profile and thank you for your out-standing work & hobby to record history - Blessings to You & Your Mom - that is not an easy task & very rewarding to her.

Hello Lisa-

Thank you for the correct cemetery for Mr. D'Angelo. That's the first time I've had to move a memorial to a different cemetery! I added his memorial from an obituary and it had the wrong cemetery. While I was moving his memorial I looked him up on Ancestry and added what I found.

Keep up the good work.

Gail

I contacted the township clerk's office as usual to try and get the lot and grave numbers for this one as they keep the records for the cemetery. Anyway, they don't have a record of this one. Obviously it's there, you took the picture. I sent them a copy, hope you don't mind. But I was wondering if you have any idea where you were in the cemetery when you took this picture? Any information can help... landmarks... names from nearby grave markers... Then they can send the sextant out to take note of it so they have some sort of official record.

RE: Photos Coming Soon
Thanks. So do you. Unfortunately health issues are keeping me from actually going to the cemetery of late. Hoping to get it straightened out soon so I can get back to work, so to speak.

RE: Photos Coming Soon
I put up those placeholder photos because I have had a problem with another contributor posting incorrect photos on my memorials and even though I can prove they are incorrect, she says I'm wrong and refuses to take them down. Find A Grave did nothing to help when I asked, either before or after the handover to Ancestry.com. So I took matters into my own hands and have started placing those photos to lock down my memorials. I'm more than willing to open up slots if anyone asks, just not for her. She also had a habit of filling up slots with duplicate photos because she decides hers are better. So if she wants to pay for more space to put her photos up, she can. But she can't have my 5 free slots. I've had to delete and remake at least a hundred memorials because of her and I'm not even done going through everything from that cemetery.

Hey Lisa,

Thank you for the wonderful obit on this man. I also wanted to acknowledge and thank you for all the work you have done at and for Grandview. I have been there twice in the late 60's with an elderly neighbor to visit her mother. I was in my teens. That is what got me interested in wandering cemeteries and reading the sentiments people place on headstones. I see you name, often, at many of the cemeteries I photograph and see how dedicated you are. Respectfully, James Mason
PS: I think we met once at Forest Lawn with Jayne?

Hi Lisa. Nice job with Jack Stephan's memorial. I was at IPC yesterday and got a current photo of his name plate with death date on it, but I can't add it because the 5 photo limit is met. Would you want to remove the one that doesn't have the final date on it so I can add it?

I saw some Burks above the Stephan family. Relatives of yours???

Gosh, I didn't know I could get message on Find A Grave, so I just noticed your message.

Thank you so much for letting me know the Cemetery is now open. I called them and told them how happy I was to learn that they finally were able to open again.

Again, thank you

Abigail Cross and McDill Cross are my great grand parents. I would love to have a picture of their head stones. If that could be done I would appreciate it very much.

A new photo is up.
The stone has aged poorly and is almost completely indecipherable after the cross and his first name.

RE: Robert V Faris
That's great that you found him & uploaded it. Sad that it was at a flea market, isn't it ? I wonder if that's his widow and sons. Too bad it's been up for 2 years and still no family have shown up.
You should add the caption of where you found it.

Da nada. I don't know why, but some people seem to think that duplicates of memorials are a hanging offense. Go figure.

Betty Allaire
Actor Harry Glazier
Greetings Lisa,

I was looking at the Chronicling America, Historic American Newspaper on line. I read an article in the Los Angeles Herald dated December 19,1908.

FUNERAL OF ACTOR TO BE HELD AT GLENDALE.
Body of actor Harry Glazier Interred in Forest Lawn Cemetery Sunday services at 10:30 o'clock

There is more in the article.
I thought that since you made some memorial for the Glazier family you might like to check it out.

Betty,

Lisa,

I know I haven't checked in in awhile but as you can imagine I have still been trying to fight the good fight where this grave is concerned. Today I emailed and it's gong to the manager of the cemetery.

If you speak to Robert's sister's please tell them I have not given up!

Best regards,
Gina
