Would like to thank my Wife Marsha who takes almost all of the pictures for the memorials. Without her help it would not be possible to complete the memorials we have done.

I just found this photo of the memorial of the son we lost in l957. I sent him a Teddy Bear, as never got to do it before. He only lived for 45 minutes, but in our hearts always. Thank You so much. We didn't give him a name, as the doctor told us not to, but we had named him Douglas, in our Heart.

Hello Russ,

Thank you for transferring these memorials to me. This is my Clark line and I am interested in linking them to family members, as well as adding details about them.

It is the same, I did not realize it was there. I will try to get it moved over to me as she is my husbands grandmother when I get a chance to get to a computer.

Follow-up to yours re: Find-A-Grave I.D. #62015377
Tx so much for your quick reply & helpful contact info for Mountain Home Cemetery...I am assuming you already realize that you have indeed earned the nickname "Mountain Home Guy"!!! Your disclosure of prior records destruction by fire is painfully alike what happened to the vast majority of the U.S. 1890 Census, & perhaps explains why William C. Taylor, while the registered owner of these gravesites, is nevertheless not showing as being there. For your further info, my continuing research shows even more members of this same clan being interred at Mountain Home than those you have already listed. If you are interested, I can eventually give you a final tally (it does appear that you are in fact maintaining all their entries), including one family member who I can't find there in spite of his death certif. suggesting otherwise. As usual, wouldn't it be swell if an actual descendant surfaced, which is what we are all always hoping for. Again, many TX for your generous assist, & if I can ever return the favor...Best Regards

FIND-A-GRAVE I.D. #62015377
Hi, Russ, & greetings from a fellow volunteer genealogist, my terrain being Having taken on the task of researching the family of William C. Taylor & Abigail J. Crofoot (or Crowfoot, as I have sometimes, without any specific support for that spelling, seen it), I do believe that Abbie J. Taylor is a/k/a William C. Taylor's spouse (Census records & her death record appear to support my belief)...herein lies the problem...although my research clearly discloses Abbie's Husband predeceased her in 1902 in Allegan County, Michigan, I CAN NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME FIND HIS FINAL RESTING PLACE ANYWHERE !!! I would frankly have expected to also find him at Mountain Home Cemetery, but no such luck. Any suggestions from you would be most appreciated, as I readily admit my "newness" to the find-a-grave website...being here in South Jersey (N.J.), although originally a Chicago lad, does prevent me from doing other than what I now am...Best Regards & many thanks in advance for any possible help from
