RE: Maxine Precious Ballard Jenkins and husband
I was able to contact someone at the cemetery today and they verified that Maxine does not have a headstone.

RE: Maxine Precious Ballard Jenkins
I went out again today and went directly to the plot the office gave me. I could not find a tombstone. I also put a rod in the ground to see if it had sunk below the ground...there was nothing there. Sorry I could not fulfill your request. Also, Milton has no tombstone.

Allor
My pleasure! I do have a question though. Are these 'Allor's with no 'e', related to 'Allore's with an 'e'? They are right next to a friend. Thanks!

RE: Thank You Zelda
You're more than welcome; so glad I could be of some help.

I still haven't given up on your Fox family requests at Mt. Kelly; but I'm at the point where I think I have to call Sacred Heart. (Not having too much luck w/ Mr. Holton, either.)

However, here's another weird coincidence tied into the Fox/Jansson family: do you think Florence Fox and Florence Jansson are the same person? Their dates are the same and Mrs. Jansson is buried next to the Fox family.

Just curious what you think.


Thanks & Later.

RE: Carrie Fox Janssen
Hi.

I'm not sure how these things are resolved, but it seems like there needs to be a merge of the data; Patricia Ibbotson created the "Fox Jansson" memorial and SLW created the "Schloff" memorial.

Do you know either or both of these members?

Hope things can be resolved.


Thanks.

Carrie Fox Jansson
Hi.

I was at Mount Kelly looking for your photo request for Carrie Fox Jansson and was curious if you think Carrie Schloff
may be the same person?

I haven't had a chance to call Sacred Heart, but their years are identical and both are in Section 416 C.

Carrie Schloff is surrounded by other Schloff family and the Fox and Jansson families are behind
the Schloffs. The Schloffs are the dominant family in that section.

Just curious what you think.


Thanks.
