Margaret Peltz Thank you so much for clarifying her burial location. I had received information from another member that said Margaret and her husband were buried with their son at Seaside, however that appears to be incorrect.......... Could you let me know if their son Rev. Richard Peltz is also buried in Eastlawn? Since I was told they were all buried at Seaside, I am a little concerned that may not be true.......... Good luck with the book! Take care, CB
Oliver & Sophia Ross Cherie, You left flowers on the gravesite of Oliver Ross on 11.5.2012. I visited today and am curious why you left flowers. Are you a relative? Do you have any additional information on Oliver Ross? You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org Looking forward to hearing from you. Best Wishes for a Happy New Year in 2016.
