Markers on Headstone for Reedy
Hello there,

I see we are leaving a lot of flowers for the same family members. My great grandfather was Carl R. Reedy and I am trying to identify the markers on and near his shared headstone. Would you be able to help by any chance? Thank you!

Lloyd W. Cousins (b.1939, d. 2013)
Hello. I am writing about a memorial placed in our find-a-grave cemetery roster for a person we have no record of interring here - Lloyd W. Cousins (b.1939, d. 2013). This is memorial #139371359.

Find-a-grave has means to create memorials for persons who are not physically buried somewhere (e.g. ashes scattered at sea, etc.). For an existing memorial, you can simply modify the burial information to select that the method is "Other (Ashes scattered, Body donated, Body lost, etc.)" Family relationship links will remain intact.

Because we are a private cemetery and have a wall of markers for those interred, we do not want to have Find A Grave memorials for persons who are not interred here.

Thank you for your help.

Hello Pam,

I don't know where Maxine' Parents are buried. Sorry. But below is their marriage record. It list the names of Maxine's grandparents. Maybe they are buried in the same place. Also Maxine's mother's first name is Caroline. If you didn't know this already this might be helpful in your search. I hope you find what you are looking for. Would knowing Howard's & Maxine children contact information be helpful?

RE: Edwin & Charles M Bailey
Note that there can be headstones without actual burials. This is called cenotaph as explained in previous note

RE: Edwin & Charles M Bailey
I don't understand your question. Did you you compare the facts on the memorials? Do they look like duplicates to you? When I compared the information on the memorials, they appeared to be duplicates. therefore I notified you.

I always send the duplicate notification to both managers. I just happen to find these when I am looking for someone. Right now both memorials update Ancestry, FamilySearch, etc..

As managers of the memorials, you will need to work together to resolve. If the other manager doesn't respond, e-mail Find A Grave to resolve. Find A Grave will not work with me because I am not involved as a manager of the memorials.

If one of the duplicate memorials is a cenotaph meaning the person is not actually buried there, then the memorial either needs to be marked by Find A Grave as cenotaph. This must be done by sending a request to Find A Grave to mark the memorial where not buried as a cenotaph. It is also recommended for each memorial to put an active link in the bio to the other memorial. [see Find A Grave policy]

RE: Howard Edward Orvis
Hello Pam,

I don't have much on her but I will look and see what I have and send it next week. I do remember her though. When her and Howard lived in IL. they would come to Dubuque, IA every Memorial Day and meet with Howard's brother, (my dad) Roger C. Orvis and his sister, Margie Orvis Steva to put flowers on the graves of their relatives. I remember her as being very quiet, nice and always smiling.

Let me know if there is anything specific that you are looking for and I will be glad to help in anyway I can to help you find what you are looking for.

Yes, I am related to Howard E. Orvis.
Howard was my father's older brother which in turn made Howard my uncle.

Please let me know why you ask?

Westlawn-Hillcrest Vets
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.
