RE: George Opitz Jr. 76207595
Not a problem at all. Yours was one of the most prompt I've ever gotten and it's all good now. Thanks again!

George Opitz Jr. 76207595

Would you be so kind as to move the two death certificates on George Opitz Jr.'s memorial over to the correct person they belong to... his father George William Opitz Sr. # 127799039?

George Sr. is the husband of a sister of my maternal grandmother's, making Jr. a distant cousin. If you would make these two moves I can add two photos I have for George Jr. The certificates will fit onto Sr.'s memorials where they correctly belong.

Thank you very much for this help and for all the contributions you have made to Find A Grave.

Edward Henry Walden (1918 - 1926)*
Am confused. Her headstone reads Mary Ritchey
The link to her son Edward Henry Walden takes you to a link for his parents which is in a different cem. plus has headstones for them? Are you sure which is correct? Elizabeth Mary Bledsoe Ritchie was married to a Walden? Are they the same person buried in two cems or ??? Thanks DKOWN
