Harrison and Helen Matterson

I am confused by the suggestion you sent, I created the memorials for Harrison Matterson and his wife in Burlington Green Cemetery; you have just created duplicates in the same cemetery. Am I missing something?

RE: Arlene Freeman
I understand your confusion, but I always check other records before I make an entry into Find A Grave. 100 years is old. It's always confusing when a middle name or nickname is used on a gravestone.

Making a memorial for the living is a pet peeve of mind since my father, approaching 100, has been placed on Find A Grave several times and I have been on there once. At this time we are both living and not on Find A Grave.

Find A Grave memorial for Margaret Schonbein #48432865
Thank you for transcribing her obit and giving me the date. After looking for it again, I found that pages 4-9 of the 9 Mar 1941 are missing on the Google Newspaper site I use. So, now that I know it exists and what is in it, I will accept your request. Your documentation is just what I need.
Sincerely, Dorothy Brandner, director, Eugene Pioneer Cemetery Assoc.

Find A Grave #142846026-Grafon, Rensselaer, NY-Quackenkill Cemetery. Is there any chance you could revisit this marker and tell me the years, months and days @ time of death? Even with enlargement I can't read it---and I think I read the date of death as December 21-correct?

I would appreciate it immensely.

You have posted a grave photo from New York on a memorial in a cemetery in China, which is contrary to what we are trying to accomplish here. What you photographed is a CENOGRAPH, literally an empty grave, and how to handle these is covered in our rules. I have created a memorial in Hannibal Village and identified it as a cenotaph with a hyperlink to the actual burial. My burial memorial for Bubbling Well now has its own hyperlink reference to the cenotaph so they are now a closed loop, and you can get from the cenotaph to China and back to Hannibal through the father and mother. China is the link to the parents because you link burial to burial. Please move your photo from #123368202 to #172163061. Remember that we "Find Graves" in specific places, then identify who is there; the reverse order is what Facebook is for.

Matteson Cemetery
The cemetery is located on the southwest corner of the intersection of 1750e and 1600n. If this doesn't help let me know.
