RE: Manchester, Dearborn, Indiana, USA
I'm not sure that I have ever photographed there. I did a spot check and saw the name "Barb" as a photographer on the ones I checked. Believe she's a local, or at least our paths have crossed on some of my Canfield relatives down in Dearborn County, before.

RE: Elizabeth Walters

If your mother's parents are Elsie & Henry Walters then we are related. My last name is Walter (no s) although there were cousins of my father's who married into the Walters family. Elsie Walter's maiden name was Simmler. She did have a daughter named Elizabeth. If this fits then I have the family traced back to Switzerland, arriving in Paterson, NJ in 1879.

RE: Walters in Calvary
Thanks, Gordon. I just claimed all of them. I'll upload the photos later tonight.

New pictures
Gordon, I am a perfectionist so I went back this afternoon and replaced the first 3 pictures of Edith Walters memorial with images in which the afternoon sun light shines on the stone making the engravings so much easier to read and the monument itself looks more beautiful.

Walters memorials
Gordon, would you please click on the "Request A Photo" button on each of the 6 memorials so that they would show up on the list and I can get credit for them? You should also type a short note on each of them saying that "Marcial has already taken the photos" or something similar although I will be alert to claim those memorials before anyone else sees them. They are 155667611, 155667799, 155616015, 155668335, 155616120, and 155667533. Thanks.

William Edward MaGuire, Jr.
I uploaded the photos this morning. You are right, he's buried in a "public space".

Elizabeth Bessie Walsh Walters
This is the one I was referring to but her name is not on the headstone, which doesn't mean that she's not buried in those 2 graves. The Elizabeth Walters on the stone died Sept. 4, 1912.

The other Walters on the headsone
Gordon, I see that you created memorials for your other relatives buried with Edith (at least I just saw one of them). I that's ok with you, I can upload the same photos to those memorials.

RE: Walters in Calvary
Your message made feel good, sincerely.
Photography has been a hobby since I was a child, but now with my F.A.G. commitment, my interest in photos reached another dimension that I had never explored before. If you ever come to Calvary Cemetery, please let me know and I would take you to your family resting places.
