Consort and relic refer to a spouse, usually to women. A consort is a husband or wife of a living spouse. A relic is a widow.

Latin abbreviation: H.S.E.
hic situs est (here lies)

Latin abbreviation: H R
Hic Requiescit (here rests)

Latin abbreviation: AEC
Anno Emmanuelis Christi (In Christ Emmanuel)

Latin abbreviation: IHS"
Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus, Saviour of men)

"INRI" is an abbreviation for the Latin "Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum" ("Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews")

I typically do not put in calculated birth dates from the Aged information on a gravestone. Those dates tend to be incorrect.

I need help with St. Michaels's cemetery, East Elmhurst, Queens county, New York.

latitude and longitude
To add latitude and longitude for a FindAGrave memorial, click on Edit Plot.

If you place the latitude and longitude in the URL of a browser, the browser will take you to that location. For example, copy and paste the following into the URL of a browser (include the comma and the space: 38.7338, -86.48588

If you download Google Earth (it is free software) and put in the search box the latitude and longitude (for example 38.7338, -86.48588), it will take you to the grave area.

I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.
Under Tools, Options, 3D View
- Decimal Degrees
Under Tools, Options, Navigation
- Do not automatically tilt while zooming

If you leave a space before the values, an error message, "values are not the correct format", will be returned.

Be sure to include the dash "-" for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.

RE: Elizabeth McCane Kutch, 67558340
Hi

I understand the dilemma after your expansion. If the bodies may have not been moved with the headstones the new memorial would be recorded as a possible"cenotaph" and you could have both on Find A Grave. I am not the Find A Grave police. To me it just looked like a new duplicate.

I would list yours as a "possible cenotaph only" writing the explanation that the bodies may still reside on on the old Kutch Family Farm as the earlier memorial suggest. With only the memorials to go by, I think you are correct in having two. The only explanation I aslo have, is that the tombstones were just leaning against the barn wall and it would suggest the bodies remain on the farm, and that some very degenerate person has desecrated a family grave. This in fact may be crime that needs to be addressed and reported.

Thank you for caring for our deceased . God Bless.

RE: Zimri Raridon
You are so very welcome! I've actually been looking for that one for you for quite some time! The cemetery doesn't have an office or anyone to ask so I take a few hours when I'm out that way to just wander around and hopefully spot them. When I finally spotted it, I was thrilled, needless to say. Glad I could help. :)

Blessings,
JD

Question for you. . .I had edited Mary to show her mother, Wilma, in one cemetery, but note there are two memorial pages for Wilma. One is #138822706 in Lawrenceport Cemetery and one is #148985147 in Mitchell City Cemetery. Do you happen to know which one is the correct location? Thanks!

I'm thinking that perhaps your entry is in the correct cemetery, by enlarging the tombstones pictured with Dale/Marjorie East, the in-laws of Mr. Cooper. The entry in Clear Creek, #76601128, as stated before, the picture of tombstone does not match with bio, but bio states would be buried at Clear Creek. Let me know what you think please.

wrong cemetery?????
Me Again, I don't know which one is correct, but this person is also listed at Clear Creek cemetery, has a report on how he was killed in an accident. But, the picture of the tombstone is questionable to me, has Cooper-Deckard listed on it. Nothing in his bio about Deckard. I do know that his in-laws, (at that time, the Easts) are buried at Clover Hill.
