A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS WHO SO POLITELY PUT UP WITH ALL MY ADDITIONAL INFO REQUESTS!|
I live just blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, Orange County, FL. It's beautiful, and I'd be happy to take a photo if one is needed. I LOVE going to the cemetery!
I have been actively photographing and documenting the older sections of Greenwood. I am currently going through all their records to make sure we get everyone on findagrave.
I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one). I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.
Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.
Feel free to use my photos (with credit to me - Merf works) for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of someone else's grave marker. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible.
My mother and I are researching our family who settled in Lee, Phillips and Monroe County, Arkansas.
In particular, we are desperately searching for parents and siblings of Thomas Trotter Bonner, who settled in Spring Creek, AR. He married Elizabeth Shackelford Bonner in 1834 in Marengo Co., AL.
Assisting my mom and the Annie H. Darracott UDC Chapter out of Lakeland, Polk Co, FL in the documentation of Confederate Veterans.
Completing FAG entries for Greenwood Cemetery using various sources including cemetery records and undertaker records. I'm only concentrating on the lettered, older sections.
Family surnames: Allen, Allred, Bonner, Coble, Estes, Gaines, Garrison, Gearhart, Gower, Hale, Harris, Higginbotham, McGee, Mauney/Mooney, Ottertail, Raymer, Redditt, Waldron, Walker, Whitfield

Just wanted to thank you for posting my grandfathers tombstone photo on the Find a Grave site
I had been to the cemetery and taken pictures a few years back, but somehow have misplaced them and it's a long way from my home in Indiana to take them again
|bluebell||Wow. Thank you.|
You went to the extra trouble of making a memorial for Burton Stoel and transferring him to me! I try to remember when I call about someone to ask if they have a marker but I forgot this time. You have gone above and beyond, and I appreciate it more than you know.

Merf, thank you for taking time to post a photo of my uncle Jim's headstone.
I wanted to stop by and thank you for the photo of my great grandmother's headstone :)
Her name was Edith Hart.
|Elaine||RE: William A. Sipprell|
Interesting extras for sure.
It sounds like you have more than well searched the area & definitely gone 'above & beyond' so I feel confident that the site could not have been missed for sure. Wm. A. is not a direct line for me but is part of my 'Sipprell' family. We are truly lucky to have such wonderful volunteers at such distances as I would never in my lifetime be in most places my relatives (close or distant)have 'chosen' to remain. Thanks!!

Thank you for your thorough search for the above marker for William A. Sipprell (memorial #46744202)at the San Lorenzo Cem. in Saint Augustine, FL. I can't be sure it is the correct person but matched my info. fairly well though the years appear to be out by one year each. My info. says he was born Mar 07 1908, Alhambra, Los Angelos Co., CA & died Nov 23 1981, Saint Johns, FL. This man was vice-president of Lear Jet Corp., therefore I find it difficult to believe he would not have had a stone though there could be several reasons why it may not be there I am sure. Once again, thank you very much for your time & efforts.
Elaine (from ON)

Elizabeth is buried in Palm Cemetery, and there is a note that says her husband Walter preceded her in death. Do you know where he is buried. He is my Great Uncle. Have been looking for a death date for him. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
Thank You, Anne Pritchett Haws
I deleted the dup. and added my pic to yours.
