RE: 2 cems with diff names
At a loss here. I searched for the Stanwood cemetery the result I found had 19 memorials listed. I searched five or six of those memorial names for the Stanwood cemetery only finding the listing for the Stanwood cemetery for those names. Did you find any of the Stanwood cemetery memorial names that were duplicates? Listing one in the Stanwood cemetery and one in the Anderson cemetery?

RE: 2 cems with diff names
As far as I know there is no cemetery in Stanwood named East Stanwood or Stanwood cemetery. You'll probably find that these graves are from several different cemeteries, Anderson, Our Saviour's Lutheran, Freeborn, Pleasant Hill, Camano Island Lutheran, Zion Lutheran ect, ect. As far as I know all cemeteries in the Stanwood area on find a grave have pictures for the cemetery themselves. There are about 6 cemeteries in the Stanwood area, with several other towns or areas nearby with cemeteries. The best resource for the Stanwood area cemeteries is the Gilbertson Funeral Home 360-629-2101. Often I think what can happen is an obituary will say services, burial or interment in East Stanwood, which I believe the Pioneer Hwy is considered East Stanwood, which has 3 or 4 cemeteries along that road. I have been to most, but not all the Stanwood Cemeteries. I hope that helps, John Nielson

If you think there is anything in the article that can be added to his bio you can send us the information through the edit tab on his memorial and we will take a look.

Thank you for the offer.

RE: Cerelda Jane Riff
You're right. I looked it up on the Washington death index and it also shows 1955. so I changed it. Thanks for letting me know!

Trust me I am not the only one not posting obits:
Find A Grave Guidelines:
Submitting Information / Creating Memorials

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed. [Top]

Guess you leave messages but don't read your own.
Please read my personal page.


Keep the memorials and what ever you wish. If you send them back to me I will delete anything that is not part of the headstone information
