Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it if it is on my interment page or email it to you if it is on someone else's page!

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

your grandson
I'm doing OK but just can't grow my hair back. UGH! It's been a rough couple of years but has given me more time to work on Find A Grave. I'm so sorry to hear of your grandson. Those kids are my heroes and my heart bleeds for them going through chemo at their young age. It turned me into road kill and I fear what it is doing to their growth process. Friends of ours just had their little boy finish his treatments for Leukemia and it was a big celebration day. I pray your grandson is doing well. I have 5 grandkids myself and love them as much as air and water. It just kills me when they suffer.

RE: Beebe
After doing chemo I have lots of glitches and need reminders. Glad I was able to be the one to jog you instead of being poked myself. :)

RE: Beebe
Connections - Did you check the EDIT tab on your own bio page? There is a new thing just this week from Find A Grave where you can put in the links and they show up as edits instead of emails with info. I think I put the links in there. Please check and if I had a brain glitch and forgot, just tell me and I'll find them and send them. You will have edits to approve if there is a number in the edit box. It's really slick! Take it for a test drive! :)

RE: Lyman Lockwood
You are welcome. It's fun...a good distraction for me!

RE: Lyman Lockwood
Lyman is buried in the Auburn Mausoleum. I was told yesterday that that is a separate entity from Roselawn Cemetery in Auburn IN. I did not know that. Once I confirm that that is so with the person who is in charge of it, I will create a separate "cemetery". There are actually over 300 grave sites in the Masoleum. I also need to see if I can gain entrance to photograph. I also located a photo of Lyman and information on his Civil War participation. This may take a few weeks to get to you, as I have to leave town (elderly parent who is presently in ER). So if I dismiss the photo request, I will definitely follow up when I return, and won't forget you.

Thank you so much for the beautiful marker photo you added for Dick and the additional information on the plot location. I appreciate your contribution.

Lyman Lockwood
Dear Vern:

I was reading the message board for "Jennifer" and saw a message left by you about a Lyman Lockwood. It was back in 2011. Were you trying to locate or have a photo request fulfilled for him? I have recently claimed a request for a Lyman Lockwood that died in 1932 and supposed to be located at Roselawn Cemetery Auburn IN. Same person? Please let me know as I have information that you may wish to have!

Hello again Vern, just wanted to let you know the weather is getting nice again and I plan to still help. I will cover the F section for now since it's the next one up from the areas you have covered. Let me know when you are done with the one you are doing and which one you have next.
Thanks Dawn.
