Thanks for the plot info and good luck in future photo taking. If you get a chance to try the flour concept, I would be pleased to hear of your experience.

thank you so much for the photos, it means a lot to us even if they are difficult to read. I had another findagraver show me how she covers hard to read stones with flour and it is amazing how the letters and numbers stand out. She did one for a grandfathers grave in Iowa and it is amazing the difference...you can see one example here
hope this might help...anyway thanks for all you do for the FG community for it is people like you that help us connect to our missing family members.

You may already know about this trick. This usually works when stones have lichen and moss growth or mold. I use an ammonia/water solution and a nylon scrubbing brush. Start from the bottom upward. Then wash off with pure water. I have been able to bring out a few stones to where they are readable. If the stones were limestone or sandstone, there isn't a whole lot that can be done.

|psb||Memorial of Jacob Leightner (Lightner)|
Hi Eddie - I've added the death certificate to his 1912 memorial so that you can verify that the actual death date was May 16, 1912, not May 5. Once corrected, please let me know and I will remove the death certificate as I don't want to upset any descendants of his. Also not the spelling of his surname. It differs throughout the years. He was born a Leitner, then changed it to Lightner. In old script, many times the Lightner looks like Leightner because the capital "L" has an extravagant flourish to it, making it look like an "e" following it.

Thank you so much for your message. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. All that time for not much but one but, still, I really appreciate your efforts. I have been without computer access for a month now. Had to get a new one! Sorry for the delay in answering.

That's great that you saw that. I will go check that out. I don't think she is in my line but it was still a great find. Thank you for that. I always try to get the other ones in the family since I'm there anyways. I learned to do that because sometimes people come back ad then ask for the other spouse's picture. Oh, darn, I was just there kind of thing. Thanks so much again.

Thank you for transferring the Max Forward memorial to me. I do know a cousin on that direct branch of my Murphy family, so when I can I'll see what she can tell me to improve the information on those memorials. You did an excellent job of photographing the memorials.

Mr. and Mrs. Grasse are buried in the Lutheran Cemetery. Several other Grasse relatives are in Wildwood Cemetery. I got my info many years ago from a member of the Grasse family.

|Teri McAlpin||RE: Montague/McCormack - St. Josephs's|
I visited St. Joseph's cemetery in 2005 and took photos and documented some inscriptions. I think there was also a book in the Daughter of the American Revolution library in DC. Are you a Montague?

|LDR||RE: Clara Kellogg|
Thanks for your message; good point about the name search. Here's a tip: When searching, click the box marked "Do partial name search on surname". It took me awhile to find this option and I've found it helpful in situations such as this. -- Linda

|charlott jones||Anna Brooke # 83217860|
Though the tombstone states she was born in 1856, that date has to be incorrect, due to the fact that her parents John Mercer Brooke and Catherine Corbin Pendleton were not married until 14 March 1871. It was during the Civil War that she married Alexander Swift "Sandie" Pendleton of Gen. Stonewall Jacksons' aide. He was killed and it wasn't until 1871 that she married Brooke.
