You are welcome and thank you for acknowledging the photo. I am certain that this is Peter Fleisher. When the cemetery was read in 2007 the inscription was ___ Pete_ 1869.

Sorry I put wrong pix in memorial. Please resubmit request. I'm working on getting all cemetery photographed. Ray

I am a Find A Grave volunteer like you are. I am doing this to save you time and disappointment.
Sadly, there is absolutely NO cooperation from the San Luis Cemetery with Find A Grave volunteers. I was threatened with the police by the owner of the SL Cemetery, just talking to him over the phone. No volunteers have claimed a request in over 18 months. However, there has been great success with the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society. You can request a photo of the grave stone(s) for whom you are looking by doing the following; and they will respond promptly:
Address your email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Put in the subject line San Luis Cemetery Headstone photo
Give them the name and birth and death dates, or as much as you know. Ask them to send a picture of the headstone, and tell them how you are related or what your interest is in this person. They will appreciate that. This information may only be used in genealogical research. They will respond to you within a day or two.
If a photo exists, they will send you the photo as an attachment to email. They took photos of the thousands of headstones they indexed in 2009 and 2010. They photographed virtually all headstones that could be deciphered. Everyone, who was buried there before 2009-2010, and who has a headstone, has a picture of their headstone in the database of the Genealogical Society. The society will respond to individuals, but prefers not to send pictures in bulk to Find A Grave volunteers. They also have not made an agreement to download their data to the Find A Grave servers.
I will ask that the request be removed, now that you have a very reliable and quick way to achieve your goal. If there is any problem, please let me know.
As a reference here is the website for the index. http://www.slocgs.org/pdf-files/SLO-Cem-Location.pdf
I have checked the index myself and found that a headstone picture exists for this person.
Transferred her memorial to you.

|Ron Roberson||RE: William Partello|
Hi Jill thanks for your note. It's unfortunate but the oldest book of records at Glenwood disappeared a long time ago, so now they only have records starting in 1879. It's quite possible that William Partello has a marked grave but now there's no way to know where it is. There are 50,000 graves at Glenwood so it would be a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack.....

I was at the cemetery today, but the Morro Room was locked. This is a room with Niches. I could see the plaque through the glass doors, but could not get the picture. I will be back in SLO next week and will call the cemetery ahead of time to have the door unlocked.
|Joseph Barnett||Harry Stockdale|
Recently you requested a photo for him, and i noted looking through photo request that it could not be found so on a whim did a little look up on him. He is listed in records as Wayne Harry Stockdale son of Rachel Jane Jones and Harry Stockdale. Since the photographer could not find the marker for him his death certificate number is 13563 which can be found in Ancestery.com search. He was born in PA and his residence was Dekalb County. Perhaps if you obtain the death certificate it may have the burial location on it. It may be that he is somewhere else. I have not been to this cemetery myself but a 1960 marker should have been easy to find if it was there. Just thought i would pass this along if its useful.
|Jenny E.||Louis Syfers photo request|
I have double checked for a marker for Louis Syfers at Spring Grove Cemetery in Section 101 Lot 278 and am unable to find one. According to the cemetery records (www.springgrove.org) there are 11 people buried in this lot. Of those 11, there are only markers for William, Mary, and Carl Porter - and those pics have already been posted to those memorials. The other 9 do not have markers. As a side bar - this lot is right next to a lot that has 1 marker on it that says "Society of Friends". My understanding is that Quakers/Society of Friends followers did not allowed markers to be placed. Is it possible that the Syfers were Quakers?
