Thanks for your help!
Thank you for visiting Second Creek Cemetery for me to verify the inscription on the stone which had a lamb on top. I deleted the lamb stone off of Silas Shields' memorial and added it to the infant Sever's memorial. Thank you also for posting close-up photos on the memorials of Lucinda McGilton Shields, Jacob L. Sever, and the infant Server. You are the best!

RE: Shields Memorials
Thank you for adding photos to the memorials of Rachel, Mercy and Silas Shields. I had no idea that Mercy Shields was buried aside of her husband. I only had a photo of Robert D. Shields' grave marker with her name on the side of the monument. Also, I will remove the gravestone that I have for Silas S. Shields with the lamb on the top. Since I could not read the inscription, I guessed that it might be him. Do you have a photo of the lamb gravestone with an inscription that is legible?

RE: Silas S. Shields
Thank you for the photo of Silas S. Shields' gravestone. The photo I had posted for him was illegible, so I only guessed that it might be his gravestone. Thanks to your photo, there is proof that Silas S. Shields is buried there.

I added a new memorial for Rachel Kelly, the wife of Peter Kelly. You mentioned in your bio for Peter Kelly that the gravestone aside of his might be his wife's gravestone. I think we can assume that it is his wife. If you still have the photo of the illegible gravestone, could you post it on Rachel Kelly's memorial?

Also, please feel free to post any of your photos on the memorials that I have created. I think it is really nice when other people post photos or post flowers on my ancestors' memorials
