I've been interested in the unique history of grave markers for many years, and used to walk through cemeteries long before I found this site so it is a perfect match. Took a long hiatus for family reasons. If you need a specific photograph or want one of my memorials transferred just let me know, thanks.
RIP Mama. I miss you to the sun, moon, stars and back.
RE: Requests The cemetery is usually very helpful. I've been taking pictures there for Find A Grave for a couple of years and have had no problems getting locations of gravesites. The director said that in these two cases, the family specifically asked that the location not be given out. It's the first time that it's happened to me.
I'm 'in the process' of photographing the cemetery and might run across them at some point. However, there are over 4,000 interments and growing daily so it's anyone's guess as to when I'll finish and whether or not I'll see them.
RE: Mecklenberg You're welcome for the photo. I believe one of the parents passed away recently. When I went to the cemetery, the parents' marker had been taken up, probably to have the name inscribed. I will stop back by and get a photo of that grave too at some point.
RE: Frederick Lee Not sure when I'd get there again, its not in a good area of Saginaw, even makes my husband nervous. But on the plus side I have the obit of Chas Lee if you would like it. Saginaw2doggy@yahoo.com
You've piqued my curiosity Hi, When you said your relative, Chas Lee was a homicide victim I decided I would go to the library (on Sat) and check out the obit and any articles that the index indicates they have. So I will get back with you.
