Labahn Took your photos. Also found son Stanley and took photo of him and his wife. Already posted it. Will be going back to cemetery soon. If you need any more photos, please make requests. Thank you!
Since I photographed all the headstones in Vulcan earlier this year I knew there wasn't a legible marker for Allie. Then I received the following message from Virginia Markham earlier as I was hoping one of the illegible headstones may belong to her:
"Allie Burt and Allie Bertha Markham I have been to Vulcan in person. Allie Burt and Bertha are side by side (cemetery records) but there are no stones for either one.
We visited the cemetery with Vivian Campbell. Afterwards we went to the home ranch with her. No house, just barn and windmill still standing. The Markham's and Campbell's have been life long friends.
RE: Anna Gibbens The cemetery is divided into two sections, west (which is generally the newer section) and east. The rows are canvassed from south to north within the sections. Anna's row is #9 in the east section. That row begins with the monument of J.W. Reader, then the Coldsnow monument w/headstones, then Alwilda Richards, then a small unreadable headstone, then Anna's. From the dark staining on the stone, I think it may have lain on it's face for a number of years.
There were quite a number of headstones that are hard to read. I didn't identify a headstone for Allie.
I create "Unknown Unknown" memorials if both the given and surname are illegible and use "Unknown" in the appropriate spot if one of the names is clear. I listed the nearby graves on these memorials and if you can find out from the town office the names on the nearby graves we may be able to get you a photo of Allie's headstone.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated in the completion of any of these memorials. If you can help, please click the Edit tab at the top and send me a message.
Wanted to let you know - Loved Ones Memorial at Meadowlawn Hello, I am sorry to bother you but when I was at the cemetery the other day I noticed that one of the decorative plates on the bench headstone was broken on the ground. I have seen how unconcerned the lawn people are. They have damaged many memorial gifts and I have seen it. I just know that in your loved ones case, it has to have been lawn maintenance and if not, I can't think what. Had it fallen because of weather, it wold not have broken since the ground is like sand here. I just wanted you to know. I really care about everyone being respectful to loved ones' final resting place. I thought you might want to know about the damage done. Like I said I have seen it often and have fixed some when possible. You can contact me if you want at firstname.lastname@example.org
