He was in the cemetery list--I'll be glad to transfer him to you if you want, then if you find he is in the other cemetery you can "move" him more easily. Will be glad to transfer other family members, too.

RE: Anna Campbell Smith

Walked the Center Cemetery again with no success in finding any of your outstanding photo requests. I did take photo's of every Smith stone (8) and added the photo's to their existing memorials. Possibly these additional Smith's might be of interest.

RE: Anna Zamkowski Olszewski
I just checked and I don't see them. What I meant was add the photos of the Olszewski side to the older memorial created by Keith Sylwestrzuk for "Anna Zamkowski".

#16949754 and #112444932 are the same Anna. It looks like the photos you posted are 2 sides of the same marker, and her name appears twice, once with each husband. I suggest you post the photos you posted to #112444932 to #16949754 as well. I've submitted name and date and link Edits to the earlier marker. Let me know when you've re-posted the photos and I will then delete the second memorial.

Please add dates
Kimberly, thank you for all the photos and Edits you've been adding. When you add a photo that has dates that are missing from the memorial, please submit the dates as Edits. Most of the older Cathedral records that I used to create the memorials do not have date of birth. I've come across several photos you've added with the date of birth clearly shown, but the memorial does not have the date field filled in and you haven't submitted an Edit to add the date. If the memorial does have a date of birth but it differs from the that shown on the marker, I probably got the date from a death cert. or estimated it from census records. In that case I regard the marker date as more reliable. Unless I find a birth cert. or a census record that proves the marker date is wrong, I'd like to update the memorial date to reflect that shown on the marker.

RE: Anna Campbell Smith
If you have location information along with a map, that would be helpful. As I mentioned, there are a number of unreadable stones and a number that are obscured by overgrown bushes. I was able to find over 60% of the grave requests, but I would have expected to find more in a cemetery with relatively young stones. There is no cemetery office at the cemetery so was not able to check records for unmarked graves, burials under another name, etc.

Myargaretha Allison Kinney
Hi, In the above memorial the two stone readings look very different, William McClean is shown on one close up and William Kinney on the other? Is this correct? I am researching Allison surname.
Thanks Ellen

transfer request
Could you transfer the memorial pages of Andrew and Eliza Fulmele? (#129210012 and #129209985) They are my wife's ancestors and I'd like to add their children and other info to the page. Thank you for your time.

RE: Anna Campbell Smith
I forgot to add in my previous reply that I added photo's to existing memorials for D.W. Smith, Alice Smith, Sarah Smith, and William Brown. I notice that you had created memorials for some of these folks. Also, although I did not find either Elizabeth or George Shotten that you had requested, I did find Thomas C. Shotten for which I created a memorial with photo. No success with finding any of your many requests for this cemetery. Walked it twice. Many stones are not readable.

RE: Orlowski
Yes, add the photo of the mausoleum. The plot information from the cemetery database indicates she is there. This is the link to the database:

Remember to search for Orlowska with an "a", or search for Orlowsk to get both forms.

RE: Orlowski
I started off with the surmise that a woman with a surname that does not match the mausoleum likely has a maiden name that matches it. Searching on led me to records for Sophie Orlowski who married Gail Layton. That made even more sense when I saw from your photo that his name was on the same monument as her father. (In my family, Gail is a girl's name, so that took me by surprise. I didn't realize it could also be a boy's name.) Her mother is in the mausoleum. You probably didn't find her because she is listed in the cemetery database as Helena Orlowska, using the Polish feminine form of the last name. I changed it to match the mausoleum, since the rule for surnames is to match the marker. I'll use the feminine form in the Bio section, but I try to avoid putting it in the name fields, since it complicates searches. But sometimes the woman has her own marker, and it uses the feminine form.

RE: Charles and Edythe Anderson Memorial
Yes, it's great that most people are good and helpful. Yes. I would like to go ahead and take over the Anderson and Laughrey graves (if you have the Laughrey's there as well) and I beleive there may be a Heavner. I'll let you know if there are more family members there.

Thank you so much!

That's Frances's first husband Filippo Vavala. Her father's name was also Philip. She had a lot of Philips in her life.

Charles and Edythe Anderson Memorial
Are you related to my grandparents? Just wondering. Looking for cousins. I was just out to the Cochran Cemetery this summer. Many of my relatives are buried there, so I'm thankful to you for the Find a grave add!

I know what you mean about "policing' your work. Man, I was nice enough to go get some pics of a few graves at the local Veterans Hospital (random graves) that some woman wanted because the findagrave pics were xeroxed copies and illegible. So I took the pics and sent response, no thank you! So a added to Findagrave only there were now too many pics so I just did another grave and wrote it in there. I got all kinds of notes and flack from people! They wouldn't leave me alone. I finally wrote and told them "I'm done! You do what you want...this was just being nice for someone and no one appreciates what I did anyway!". Truly done with that! I've helped some others that actually appreciate my time and effort! Sheesh!

Mary Briggs
There actually were 2 Mary Briggs who died in 1934 and were burial in Cathedral. One was a McBride and the other was a McGonigal. Both are listed in the cemetery database and their death certs are on familysearch. I also thought they were dupes at first.

RE: Hicks in Chatham, Ontario
Hi Kim, I'm not sure how it works at the mausoleum, but I might have to get someone to unlock the building in order to get the photo. It isn't easily accessible. But...I will try. In the meantime, here is a link to a photo of their markers, which appears on another local photographer's website:

Just scroll down the page a bit and you will find them.

Hi Kimberly,
According to the Catholic Cemetery database, the dates on the memorial agree with theirs. I did not find her on the SSDI.
Have a great day,
