|B.J. Waters||RE: Asking for help, again...|
Hi Kevin. Good to 'hear' from you again. Well, first of all, Trona is over 100 miles from here, out in the desert of San Bernardino County. It is a small town, in fact it is unincorporated so I do not know if they have any government offices that you could contact. There is a Searles Valley Cemetery listed here on Find A Grave as being in Trona, however I don't see any contact information for it, which probably means it is so small, it doesn't have an office. The only really good suggestion I would give you, would be for you to order a copy of one of their death certificates. It would list the disposition of remains, which gives you the cemetery and/or mortuary name. You may be able to do it online. There is one good site (secure) and I've used it twice, it is called Vitalchek.com.
Have you tried doing an obituary search? More and more obits are appearing online. Some of those sites are not free, though, and might cost more than what you'd pay Vitalchek for the actual document. Obits don't always give the burial location, but it is worth a try.
Depending on where you live, you might try contact the closest LDS Church that has a Family History Library. The volunteers at those libraries specialize in helping people. It's also worth a short; give it a go and see what they can come up with!
Sorry, but these are the only things I can think of. Just because they lived in Trona, doesn't mean they are buried there. You could spend all day on the phone and internet trying to get the right cemetery and still not find them.
Good luck! I hope you find them.
PS - Keep in touch and let me know what you find. I may think of other avenues at another time and if so, I'll get back to you.

Not a problem! Loved looking for the grave and photographing it!
|SANDI WILLIAMS ESTABROOK||Margaret Parrish|
If you are a relative if Margaret, would you like for me to transfer her to her.?

Thank you for the photo of Gladys and Felton's Stone. I had not been able to add them to their Ancestry information.

Thank you for the obituary. It is not posted on her memorial.

Mine is :email@example.com

Hi Kevin, Happy New Year!
Well, the winners are . . . Harley and Avis. Those are the names on their headstones. I have added photos to their memorials. Copy them or use them as you like.
If there is anything else I can do for you, just let me know. I appreciate you contacting me first rather than doing a Photo Request. Some people are able to 'claim' the requests much faster than I can, since I work full time. I'm not interested in the 'numbers', just in helping folks.
Now, I must go and add more photos! You will not believe how behind I am in adding them to this site. I think I have about 200 in the queue!
Take care, and thanks for remembering me.
|B.J. Waters||Hattie Merrick|
Should I change her first name to Harriett? I'm never sure about leaving a nickname in the first name field. If someone searches for her by Harriett, they won't find this memorial.
|B.J. Waters||Found him!|
Walter H. Merrick (d. 1977) is in IPC's system and the location is the same as Hattie's, so you can assume that this Hattie is the right one. I created a memorial for him and will link him to Hattie.
I would be honored to get photos of their headstones. I will be going there this week. Please do not request a photo, as I am at work and I might not be able to "claim" them before someone else does.
When everything gets done, I would like to transfer them to you, unless you don't need that to be done.
I'll let you know when the photos have been added.
