Thank you for the information and correction.
I really appreciate it. If Helen is related to you or a friend and you would like for me to transfer the memorial to you, please let me know.

I hope to photograph the whole thing. I was up visiting last month. I only got 1/4 done right now. I hurt my knee, I will be back and get the rest this year. Jerry

|Peg & Lacey||Hopkins|
Thanks Rich! My Hopkins were in Illinois. I've tracked us back to Amblet Hopkins (1805-1877) & Nancy Frazier (1820-1901). I am related to Percy Hamilton-Weir. Do you have a connection to him? :)
|Thomas Brown||RE: Re: David J. Campbell|
I have updated the memorial and with the addition of his parents you can see there grave site.
I have a photo of David in uniform when he visited our house probably 1944.
Will get a digital copy made & add to the file.
Thanks for taking care of our military.

Thanks Rich, I uploaded the pic :) Robin
|Robin Slater Boyd||Same person 1 right 1 wrong?|
Hi Rich I came across an error and wondering how it gets fixed. While taking Pics I came across Janet L. Shunk Daniels 7-28-1956 11-20-2003 There are two listed at NE Cemetery
# 8112715 has the correct date
# 29213635 has the wrong date I do have a clear pic if you would like me to send it to you. Thanks! Robin Slater Boyd
|Barbara Goggin Brann||Christ Swanson|
Rich, Christ's son Lewis Swanson's death certificate has his father's name as Christopher Swanson, and his mother's name as Matilda Olson. I know that their gravestone's say Christ and Tilda. Do you know if Christ is correct over Christopher?
|Robin Slater Boyd||Hi Rich|
Is there a SAFE way to clean briefly some of the headstones that are really bad before taking pictures. I've google it the ideas I've come across would be deep cleaning :( I just want to make them more readable for others. Guess if nothing else I will take a soft brush to clean some up a bit. Thanks Robin Slater Boyd
