RE: The Emersons - Catalina Island Hi Vince. I finally got photos of their marker, and they have been added to their memorials. It must have been set within the past 6 months, because it was not there when I checked late last October.
RE: The Emersons - Catalina Island Hello, Vince. This is a follow-up on what happened earlier this year. I was out at the cemetery recently, and visited the office of the City Clerk. She told me that a marker had been set. I went out to look for it, with the plot map in hand, and it STILL has not been set. In the lot next to the Emersons is a marker for Kelly Anne Emerson, who I assume must be either their daughter or their daughter-in-law. This marker was not there on my last trip, even though the year of death was back in 2011. Maybe the recent placement of her marker was what the City Clerk was referring to when she told me a stone has recently been set.
I won't be going again until next spring, but I will look again for a headstone on my next trip. By the way, the Clerk wanted to know what my relationship is. Of course I had to tell her I was doing this for someone else. What is your relationship?
Robert Matthew Leverence Hi Vince, I am looking for the name of the brother of Robert Matthew Leverence. Something happened to this brother and when my son in law Matthew Allen Leverence was born, his mother may have died because Robert Matthew and his wife Lucille adopted my son in law as well as his two sisters. My son in law and my daughter died in Oregon. Their two sons hope to learn about thier biological grand father. One of these boys was named for Robert Matthew, just as their dad Matthew Allen was named. I have been unable to find a 1930 census for Robert Matthew Leverence although I found a 1940 census. The 1930 census may name Bob's elder brother, the biological father of Matthew Allen Leverence who Lucille and Bob adopted. We will appreciate any information which you are willing to share. I too am a contributor to findagrave. Bettye
RE: The Emersons - Catalina Island Great. I'll keep them on my list for my next trip. To remove the requests, click on your list of requests, and on the right side you will see the choice to "remove" the request.
Do you know the Emersons' sons, Mitch and Brian? They are the ones who are ordering the marker. If you are in touch with them, they may be able to tell you when the task is done. If you do not know them, or prefer to not contact them, I will just check back with the City Clerk in a month or so to find out if it has been done.
The Emersons - Catalina Island Hello! I have claimed your photo requests, however, I requested the plot map of the area where they are buried and was told by the City Clerk that there is no headstone yet. The family has ordered one.
My suggestion would be for you to withdraw your photo request, at least for now, and check back with me in about a month. Because this cemetery is on an island and burials do not happen often in this very small cemetery, it is not surprising that the stone has not been set yet.
Please let me know if you think this is a good plan. Otherwise, any photo I would take to fulfill your request will be a photo of the area, only.
