Sister Helen

So sorry for your loss! I hope that you have a lot of her genes - being 101 is quite an accomplishment.

Her memorial has been transferred to you.

First of all thank you for all you do for find-a-grave and for all of us that are unable to see our family's headstones in real life so I for one an so thankful there are people like you that give so much to others. THANK YOU SO MUCH...Next I would like to know if you would allow me to use your headstone photos on my ancestry family tree I would give you and find a grave credit for the use of it. I will wait for a reply. Just to let you know I would understand if your answer is no so by all means dont feel you have to do it. I thank you again and will be waiting for your reply. Jane Hall

Thanks for the Obit. I took the liberty of adding that plus a little additional research.

Wow, I didn't expect to see no grave marker. Thanks for going to the extra trouble of contacting the cemetery office to locate and record a marker-less gravesite. The detail on the photograph was an excellent way to handle it. You have given me a lot of food for thought and I'll have to get in contact with my father and find out if he knows the story of why his step mother never got a marker. You would think her sons would have done something.

Thank you for all your time and trouble photographing my relative's gravestone. I live too far away to be able to do it myself. I really appreciate it. Jean

Botho Wolff
I have added the parents to Botho - and YES, Otto and Anna Wolff appear to be the parents, based on the census. The Wilhelm family is part of my research of the Germans from Russia that were in the Tacoma area where I grew up. If you want it transferred to you, seeing as you do have family ties, all you need do is ask. Both pairs of my grandparents came from the same village of Kolb, Russia as the Wilhelms. I grew up in what was known as "Little Russia"!...Judi
