Elizabeth Wildrick Memorial
Thank you so much for your effort in finding and photographing this grave site for my family. Perhaps because of the back round markers I might be able to find it myself some day.
Thanks again,

Stewart McIntosh
Hi Joan,

Mystery solved! ... and thank you for finding Stewart McIntosh.

The burial site is impressive looking with all the mausoleums in the background.

Because of your photos I was able to find Stewart in the Census records from 1880 - 1900; his wife's name being the key. All bits and pieces of information often adds up to a good find ... thanks!

Best wishes,

C. H. McIntosh
Hi Joan,

Thank you (again!) for your kindness in locating and photographing the grave of C. H. McIntosh.

Your photo proves an error on the part of the memorial. This man is Sgt. C.H. McIntosh of the 10th New Jersey Infantry and not Corporal George H, McIntosh of the 81st Pennsylvania.

I have already contacted findagrave about the error.

Many thanks and best wishes,

RE: Thomas Collins pic
Okay thanks! I really appreciate your help for the 2 pics of Everett Flakes and Thomas Collins. I heard a flood ruined the cemetery in the 1970s so I wasn't sure if my requests would make it through. God Bless you!

Sincerely, Kim Roper

By the way, their cottage was on the same property where the Glen Summit Springs bottling plant is. I have no idea if their old Victorian Cottage is till there or not. Thanks again.

Patteson Memorial
I would love the other photographs you might have. Helen Harriet Patterson married Benjamin Franklin Myers. Benjamin died about 2 years after Joseph E. Patterson. Bruce [d. 1881] was Joseph's son who died early in life. Eva Mary Patterson Cabel was his other daughter. Helen Patterson Cabel and Joseph Patterson Cabel were grandchildren. Her husband was the individual who ended up as the President of Armor Packing. A very accomplished family. Thanks again, and sorry my message got sent under my wife'e email.

Joseph E. and Julia Patterson Memorial
Thank you so much for the very quick response to my request. I am preparing a genealogy manuscript on the descendant of James Patterson, my 7th great grandfather, who was a Scottish war prisoner from the Battle of Worcester, England, 1651 and sent to the Boston colony in 1652 as an indentured servant. I ran across Joseph E. Patterson, also a descendant of Jame Patterson while researching, and was surprised not to find more about where they were buried. Joseph E. and his wife had an interesting life and their daughters were equally successful. One was married to a man who eventually became the President of Armor Meat Packing. I really appreciate your assistance and excellent photographs.
