Sorry, the photos for her grave stone are so poor, but the stone is very hard to read. The plot location and map show her grave to be at the location I took these photos. You can read the surname Cosner, the rest is very hard to read.

RE: Manley or Callahan
Hi Marge,

Thanks for the message. I have been meaning to add the following info to my profile. "The Miami-Dade Public Library maintains the Miami-Dade County Obituary Indices (1896-2008), compiled and published by Ann Josberger McFadden. The obituaries and death notices are indexed by year, and contain the name of the deceased and the newspaper reference for locating the individual's obituary or death notice.
Contact the Miami-Dade Public Library, Genealogy Department at 305-375-5023 for information and obituaries". Your message reminded me to add it.

I was able to find partial death dates for the folks you mentioned.

Anna Callahan died in 1944, George Joseph Callahan in 1948. Lester Bryant Manley died Aug 1958 and Josephine in Apr 1969. If you contact the library they should be able to find their obits.

If the obits don't mention the cemetery, you will need to obtain Florida Death Certificates. They are only $5, if you have the exact date of death. The link for death certificates:

Oops! again

My Error-Estella Smith request
I just posted an obituary to Estella Smith's memorial & F.A.G. said they would tell you your request was fulfilled. Not so, the "picture" is her obituary. So, you need to make the request again. Sorry!
I looked up her obit. in the hopes of finding her burial site mentioned, no luck. The Fresno County Cemetery is a pauper's field, & I just don't think from what I've read & what I've researched that she would have ended up there. Could be wrong of course. If you have any idea who her siblings were & where they might be buried or her children, she could be there. I'm willing to help if you can give me some clues.

RE: Cora Oegerle
Yes, I remember. When I saw Cora's name, I was hoping that I could find you and tell you that the lost was found.

Hope you are able to find her sister.

RE: Clifford Thompson
Thank you for the reply. I grew up in Detroit and we would go to Lansing (Holt) every few months to see my Grandpa Clifford. Lillian died when I was very young. My brother and sister still live in Michigan but we moved to Arizona in 2001. I can remember visiting family in Colorado when I was a kid and we were on vacation. I recall my dad (Richard) telling about one of his uncles being in the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show and we searched photographs and information when we visited Bill's grave a few years ago.

When I was still working, I spent many weeks in and around Silverthorne and Dillon testing cars for Ford Motor Company. Such a beautiful state!

Best Regards,
Bob Thompson
