Thank you for updating Rachel Perior's memorial page, with a grave site photo.
|Thomas||PFC George Alexis Amyotte|
You have made my day photographing his plaque. As you know, I am writing a book on the WWI field hospital her served. To see the plaque his wife applied for and received is great. You did well. If you know the plot number I will add. Thank you again.

Now indeed I see that both Walter and Evelyn have the surname Frasz. Apparently their name is misspelled during the original recording. I proposed an editorial change for them both.

Because both mentioned people lie in the same grave, I am still interested in the pictures of both people: Walter and Evelyn "Fransz".

Thank you for your time and energy you used to fulfill my photo requests for these two memorial photos.
Have a great day,
Hey, did you see, someone took Master Leon's photo!? How cool! :)
And totally funny! LOL!! They must have taken it WHILE I was writing to you that I needed to contact the office! LOL!!
I'll have to stop by and see where it's at - I have a feeling I was way off.
And I feel VERY badly, because it's obviously the original peg; so the men had to dig it up and raise it; I should have done that. :( I must not have been in the right spot; sorry.
Well, at least it's visible and should remain visible for quite some time. :)

I know what you're thinking: What's up w/ this delay?
I'm thinking the same thing! LOL!!
I guess it's probably just a bad time of year for the field men to be doing something other than winterizing .. or something. LOL! I have no idea.
I unfortunately didn't get out of work in time to talk w/ someone, on Saturday, but the section doesn't have any new markers in it, yet. I don't want to pester anyone, but they did say it shouldn't take more than a week ... perhaps the work order was misplaced or something. I'll try and call just to make sure we're not forgotten.
I actually like that idea the cemeteries in your area have for submitting the requests in writing. At least there's some kind of acknowledgement of the search.
We have some really impatient office workers this way. Each request is met w/ a beleaguered sigh - I'm really curious what other jobs are included in their office work. I realize they're involved in the sales end, but not really sure what else occupies their time.
It can't be an easy job, that's for sure. And I'm going to make it a little more annoying, come this week. LOL!! They're pretty nice at Mt. Olivet, though.
I'll let you know more by week's end. :)

Oh my, such a crazy long weekend; sadly, not too successful.
Once again, we're so dependent upon the office staff. I talked w/ a VERY friendly young woman @ Mt. Olivet, who's knowledge of older interments was not on the same level as her friendliness.
However, she said it would be easiest for the cemetery to flag young Master Leon's grave for us. (She provided me w/ a map, but there's two Tier 5s and she wasn't exactly sure which one to send me to. Apparently, the main source of confusion is whether he was considered an infant or a child; she said his age indicates a child's grave, but the size of the plot implies an infant - basically, she didn't know. LOL!!)
I spent some more time, trying to at least find the cement peg, to no avail. Mt. Olivet uses a smaller peg than Holy Sepulchre, so they sink faster/ further and disintegrate faster - they're also just so much easier to miss when trying to dig for them.
There's a man @ Mt. Olivet that's just beyond cool - I really need to find his work schedule. He not only knows the cemetery's locations, but also its history. He's just a major font of information.
We SHOULD have the grave marked by week's end, but w/ cemetery clean-up in progress, I think it may take a bit longer.
She'll call and let me know.
I put in Mr. Joseph's and Mr. Fred's photos. I think Mr. Fred's stone is exceptionally sweet. :)
Have a great week. :)

Mr. Fred's stone only provides years (1897 - 1935) w/ an interment date of 6/1/1935.
Because Mr. Joseph has no stone, I can only provide an interment date: 12/24/1936 - so close to Christmas. :(
Hope that helps. :)

You're always so kind and sweet. :)
I have the photos for Mr. Joseph and Mr. Fred; I'm assuming they're not relatives, but would you like to add their memorials, anyways?
I apologize if Mr. Albert's picture looks a little too contrived. After digging and raising the peg, w/ all the mud, it was just a mess. I tried to add some leaves to cover the muck ... but it looks a tad "stagey". :D LOL!! Hopefully, I'll get a nice photo next spring w/ some nice green grass.
I needed to retrieve some potted plants at Mt. Olivet and tried to find young Master Leon. Sadly, I wasn't very successful; I fear he may not have a stone.
I unfortunately went too late (keep forgetting that Holy Sepulchre is pretty much alone in providing extended office hours) and couldn't ask at the office. (Trinity has even shorter hours!)
I hope to be able to get back to Mt. Olivet by next weekend. If this rain lets up, this may be the last few good weekends before our first frost.
I hope to have good news by next Monday. :)
