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.

RE: Owen and Doris Gurtner
Thanks for trying. I've put Cecil's name in leaving out different types of info and no matter how much or little I put in... neither of them show up. I might have to ask family if they remember where they are buried.

RE: Owen and Doris Gurtner
Darn. I found that they also lived there. I remember they had a lake cottage not too terribly far from here, as we went to see them there when I was really young. Just not finding any info on them. Genealogy center, here I come!

Thank you for the transfer. I've been looking and have a feeling that Cecil and Virginia Gurtner are also in the same cemetery. If you are there again, would you keep an eye out for them. I found a bit of info this afternoon that suggests they also lived there. I remember going to Uncle Cecil's funeral when I was pretty young. I wasn't sure which uncle Cecil it was as I had two and we didn't arrive in time to view the casket. That distance would explain that memory. I have a cousin up that way, so maybe we might venture that far at some point. Next step is Ancestry at our local genealogy center.

guess you should ask findagrave to delete that other memorial as yours is correct and that owner is no longer active. I've done that a few times and findagrave has always complied.
