RE: #120841169
Hi Robert, apparently we think along the same lines. I decided against combining two photos at once simply because it compromises both images. If I have a lot of photos, I've just started paying the five dollars.

The workshop I attended said there is nothing we can put on stones to preserve them after cleaning. They stressed how stones are "living" and need to breathe--expand and contract with temperature. Wet and Forget was the second best formula they suggested! The folks said that on the intricate, old stones to use D/2 then annually use Wet and Forget to keep them clean.

It is too bad we don't live near each other. I would find it handy to have a cleaning partner. I want to begin stone repair, but it is just too difficult for one person. I'm happy to know there is someone else out there doing this volunteer work though. It is so satisfying to see these old stones come back to life.

Sheldon/Shelden L. Wever/Weaver
Good Day Robert,

I am having difficulty locating our Great-Great Grandfather. His death certificate indicated he was to be buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Sanilac Centre, in August 1899. The writer of his death cert. spelled his last name SHELDEN WEAVER, His wife signed her name Ida Wever. He died in Elmer, Sanilac, Michigan at the age of 41 from TB. They owned property in Forest, Ontario.

Would you be able to give me some ideas as to where to go from here to locate his grave site?

I created a Find A Grave Memorial# 98738656.

Please and Thank you for any and all assistance.

RE: #120841169
I'm a stone cleaner, too, Robert. I took a class a couple of years ago and was introduced to D/2 Biological Solution. For the really old, detailed stones that are difficult to clean, you just spray the stuff on and walk away. Three months later it is clean. It is the only solution that the Indiana Historical Society promotes as safe for stones. If you are into cleaning the really old ones, you might be interested in checking the stuff out on line.
Thank you again for the work you do.

Hi Robert, thank you for locating Johnetta's memorial stone! I have removed the marriage data photo as you have requested. Thank you for taking the time to email me to do so.

Appreciatively,

Lisa

RE: Memorial Transfer
Hi Robert,

Can you please send your requests through the Corrections tab and include your Find A Grave id #? It makes it a lot easier to do the transfers and that is the recommended way to request transfers.

Thank you,
Terri

RE: Frances Koster Rich
I am not sure of her first husband's name, but if you look on the Moorman church website (familysearch.org) and type in Frances Koster in Ohio, it will give you a listing that shows her marriage to Ray Rich. There are two listings, one that says just Frances Koster, and another that says Frances Oleski Koster. There is also a photo attached to the listing that shows the paperwork for their marriage. On that paperwork it shows that both Ray and Frances are widowed, and it shows that Frances' parents are Joseph Oleski and Frances Cichowlas (though they have it as Cihowas). I hope this gives you the confirmation you need.

Frances Koster Rich
Thank you for finding and posting the grave for Frances Rich. Her maiden name is actually Oleski. She was married and widowed before she married Raymond Rich. Frances is my mother's cousin and her parents are listed on my page. If you would be so kind, could you please connect them or transfer the memorial to me so I can take care of them. Frances' parents are Joseph Oleski and Franziska Cichowlas Oleski. Thank you.
