Thanks for your help, Judy!
I did the edit button for a couple of edits on my grandparent's memorials - but when it came to Harold's, I was just stumped.
I'm not sure what all the symbols on his headstone are, but that one diamond-shaped one with the green, on the upper right of his side of the headstone, is the patch for the 4th Infantry Division (I know this because it was also my unit when I was in the Army). You can see an oval-shaped heart in the middle of the symbols used to have his photo in it, but it was vandalized about a decade ago. The symbol on the bottom left is the Army's Combat Infantryman Badge. The one over that looks like a plow handle?? But he grew up in town, so I can't imagine that it's a farm thing. The one I really cannot identify is the bottom right - it looks to me like someone wearing a tank top, eating movie theater candy - and I know it's not!

I can't edit John's listing to remove his wife. The originator has to click on the relationships page for him and delete the spouse entry.
I think everything else looks good.

Judy, sorry it has take me so long in getting back to you. I have been under the weather just now getting back into things. I wanted to link Helen to her son Thomas W. Day 86810484 which you declined. I was wondering why. Since I have done research and talked with Thomas son and he has confirmed that helen is Thomas dad.

Amen Sister! This is my Mantra, too! :)
I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.
It's funny, recently I requested a transfer and on the manager's profile bio it simply said, "PAY IT FORWARD".
Then, she proceeded to NOT transfer to me, never replied to my request, deleted my message on her board (so she obviously read it), and then transferred it to some stranger with no ties to the person, and that new manager refuses to relinquish the memorial.
Unfortunately, my relationship is not by blood, so I cannot appeal to Find A Grave administrators.
So sad that people deny transfers when the person asking is able to adequately explain/define the relationship and upload photos that only someone close would have, and add family links and personal bios.
So sad. So much for "Pay it forward". Ha.

They certainly are greener than my dead yard. I don't know what they are doing, but at another nearby cemetery, the flat marker was obscured by a thick layer of packed dirt. I had to stand on the marker and grind my heel into the dirt for some time to get it so I could brush it away. (I don't like to be disrespectful in this way but it seemed impossible to brush or wash the dirt away so the stone could be read.) I would not have said that marker had been moistened in quite some time to have the dirt so completely dry -- like cement -- all the way through, but the grass around it was green...

Hi Judy, Next time you're out at Lower Lake Cemetery, would you mind taking a newer photo of my Grandfather's headstone? The one I have on his memorial is from Grandma Fern's funeral, and I'd love one that has Grandpa George's death date inscribed on the stone. Many thanks! :)

Thank you for the additional picture of my father's headstone, and the transcription. I was wondering if Lower Lake Cemetery suffered any damage from the recent fires. Your picture shows me my father and grandparents' graves are undamaged. I truly appreciate that. Thank you!

I do not have any first hand information where my 3rd great grandmother is buried. Perhaps this below will help From the Kentucky standard in 1900.
The Kentucky Standard Dec 15 1900 Vol 1 Number 1 - Page 3
Notable Burying Ground
There are a number of noteworthy old family burying grounds in the country surrounding Bardstown. One of the most interesting of these is located on the old Bryan Neal farm, near the tollgate on the Gilky Run pike. Within its precinct slumber some of the first pioneers of Nelson county, notably Bryan Neal and his wife, who came to Kentucky while it was still a part of Virginia. The graves of this couple are not marked by any stone, and the dates of their deaths cannot be ascertained but it is known they were very aged when they died. Others who are buried there and are directly connected with the Neal family are; Susan Heavenhill, born in 1783; died 1871, Elizabeth Price, born 1793; died 1865, Sarah Patterson, born 1786; died 1847. James Coleman, born 1805; died 1845. With the exception of the latter the above named were the children of Bryan Neal, Mr. Coleman, being his grandson. Besides these Wm. Heavenhill is buried there, together with his two children, Mrs. Anne Prunty and Miss Jane Heavenhill. These two ladies were far advanced in years, Miss Heavenhill being 81 years old.

My sister and I did not know there was a headstone for ďNana,Ē as we called her. Our mom told us that she was cremated and her ashes were spread on the lake. Iím sure thatís true, too. Maybe our Uncle Dick made the stone happen and we just never heard about it.
We spent a great deal of time in Clearlake Park and Lower Lake when we were kids. Itís wonderful to know that such great people still live there!
Thank you so much for uploading all those photos.

I know it's a long shot, but any chance you're related or know anything more about the Mary M Fisher you created a memorial for (#82787143)? It looks like someone else gave you some obituary info to add and you said some was cemetery info. It looks like you gave the contributor's Find a Grave id #, but I can't figure out a way to search for just a contributor (as opposed to a memorial). Maybe you know how to do that? Thank you very much for creating the memorial! I've had very little to go on, but I think this is my GGG grandmother!
