I lost my husband in 2007 and I now live with my daughter.
I would like to help you with you headstone requests for ROSE HILL cemetery here in OKLAHOMA CITY but the cemetery not very helpful nor do they have good maintenance or grave markers to tell you where your at. I wrote them to get locations for members requests and this is what the letter said to me: I AM SORRY, BUT WE NO LONGER DO GRAVESITE LOCATION EXCEPT AT FAMILY MEMBERS REQUEST DIRECTLY TO US (UP TO 3 AT A TIME)
THE VOLUME OF REQUEST FOR FIND A GRAVE HAS JUST GOTTEN TO BE TOO GREAT AND WE DO NOT HAVE THE MANPOWER
TO DEVOTE TO THE VOLUME.
IF THE FAMILY MEMBER WILL CALL OR E-MAIL US WITH THE NAME OF THE DECEASED AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED WE WILL BE HAPPY TO HELP THEM.
HAVE A GREAT DAY

Frank Baptiste Aloha, I felt badly yesterday when I couldnʻt fulfill your photo request for Frankʻs final resting place, so I went back today when the office was open, got his plot information and got a photo of the temporary marker. I fulfill many requests there so I will keep an eye on it and will post a photo of his stone when it is placed. Usually takes a few months. By the way, you posted another page for him so now there are 2! I put the photo and will send the edit for his plot location to the first one.
RE: Gorman Baikie I am so happy and relieved that you liked my photos! In respect to others who tried, this was a difficult situation. The light really streams through the skylight, and I think I benefited by visiting in the mid-afternoon.
The vault is so high, today was the first time that I had wished that I had a selfie stick!
By the way, Chapel of the Chimes is a beautiful landmark in Oakland. If you aren't familiar with the structure, I encourage you to look it up. The architect was the incomparable Julia Morgan, a legendary figure here in the Bay Area, and best known for having designed Hearst Castle.
RE: George Huddy Wow, was I ever thrilled to get your news. Thank you so very much! I had talked with the cemetery at the time I made the request for a photo and they did not give me the information you did. He was quite a prominent person so it is strange no marker of any kind was ordered. I am so very glad to finally have learned about his burial. My uncle is a relative of his (my uncles great grandmother was Georges sister) so I will pass this information on to him. He might want to finally give Dr. George Huddy a marker. Apparently, he is buried with his father and cousin.
We still are trying to find where William Henry Harrison Huddy's wife and Georges mother is buried. She was an islander named Kahea. So our search will continue for her.
Again, we thank you for writing that letter and letting us know. It is certainly appreciated!
RE: Horatio Gorman Baikie 142756027 I'll be glad to go out and take a much closer look. The volunteer at the Chapel directed me to this previous spot because of the lighting I couldn't see the names clearly where it was noted to be. But knowing it should be books and not round urns will make a difference. I'll go look today. Thanks, Russell
RE: Mae Clemons Cotner I am sorry about the request. I was working just before bedtime and I just wasn't paying close attention. I was really excited to find F.A.G. info on her family. Thanks for your response. Ruby
