Thank you so much for competing the edits for Abraham and Tina Burton, and for posting photos of their headstone.
And what a beautiful and peaceful headstone with the lovely tree trunk and large branch growing into the headstone! Such a lovely photo!
Thank you for all that you do to remember those who have passed.

I am requesting permission to copy the photo of Haney headstone to my family tree on Ancestry.com. I will make sure credit is given to you for your contribution to find a grave. Thank You
Thanks for your kindness!!!

Yes THANKYOU that is the address they lived at and the Funeral home family used. How did you find it so quickly?
I really want to know because I have a grandfather that has slipped through the ancestry cracks and I would like to find him

I see you took a photo of this grave # 150934105
for Harry S. Holmes. I am trying to find out if he is my Aunt's late husband. Her name was Mary (Maime)Olinski Holmes. They lived in Chicago. Maybe you just snapped a pic. or maybe Harry is related to you . Any info would be great. Thank You
