Linda C. Driscoll
Mabel & Nellie Horto
Thank you very much for photographing these memorials. They were part of a sensational murder case, which can be found online. It was quite interesting. I am researching the husband's family. His parents lost 8 children within a three year period to small pox. After reading the case, I have no idea whether W. F. Horton was guilty, or not. Very interesting reading, though, and learned a lot about both families.

The first article I found was here:
http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn90059522/1890-08-16/ed-1/seq-1/

And there were articles several times/week from that point on until W. F. was found innocent, as described in the Dec 24th edition of the paper.

Thank you again,
Linda

RE: Herbert Hardie
Thank you for taking a photograph of Melva and Hubert Hardie. Melva was a "real find". I did not know where she was buried.I have added that information to the family tree and Find A Grave. I have made a photo request for Melva so you should be able to add your photograph. Thank you very much. It is individuals like you that motivates me to take tombstone photographs in my area of Nebraska. Thank you again

Campbell/Booker
Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of the headstones for little Willie and Harry. I'd heard that James & Lorena had 2 children who died young, but until you found their markers I had no idea who they were. So this is terrific new information.

As to the others buried in the Booker/Campbell plot, I think Jeremiah, is probably Lorena's brother, Jeremiah Booker, who was with the group of Bookers who came with the Campbells from Maine to Winona. I'm not sure how the others might fit into the puzzle, but you can bet I intend to find out!!!

I was wondering if you could email me the photos of the headstones for Nelle, Jeremiah, William & Jane? Since I'm not sure if their surnames are Campbell or Booker and how they fit into the family, I'm reluctant to create memorial pages for them. Having the photos would be a great staring point for my research. My email address is: lma12345@verizon.net

You've been a tremendous help, and I can't fully express how very much I appreciate all you've done for me. Thank you so much.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, I really can't thank you enough for taking the photos of my Great Grandparent's headstone. My Dad would have been so happy to know we found them, & have a photo. You are awesome. I hope to make it there someday to see in person, but right now I'm happy to have the photo, it means so much. God bless you for all you do, Margaret (Rigg) Hendrickson

Jessie Farsman Hatcher memorial page
Hi CSW,

I have a small correction that you may want to consider for the Jessie Farsman Hatcher Find-a-Grave memorial you created and manage. Jessie's mother's maiden name was Susan Lalanne Stettinius (dau. of George Stettinius and Caroline Veronique Lalanne)

Susan's sister, Mary Nell Stettinius, was my great-grandmother.

It is my understanding that Susan Lalanne Hatcher is also buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Winona. If you had the time and the inclination, I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider taking a picture of her grave. I have a very nice photograph of Susan that would be a nice addition to a future Find-a-grave memorial for her.

Cheers,
David Dye

Lizzie Griffith
I took a picture of Lizzie Griffith's stone today. You might want to know that she's double-listed on Findagrave with Memorial #78218929.

The stone is a four-sided stone with Sarah Arms, K.L. Holbrook, and Sarah J. Holbrook. At some point I'll add the others to Findagrave, but if you wanted to added them sooner and request photos, I have them.

Photo Requests
Valley Memorial Gardens will not release any information to walk-in's so if you want photos taken, you have to call the office and get the plot information and then post that on the memorial. Then it will show up on the photo request. Because they won't cooperate with us at the cemetery office, you will not get any photo requests filled until you post the plot information.

Thank you
Thank you so much for the photos that you took for me this past week. You fulfilled five requests for tombstone photos of the soldiers of the 27th Iowa Volunteer Infantry (Civil War): Samuel Hemenway, Charles Maxwell, John Strohm, Horace Strong and George McKee. I appreciate you documenting the headstones of these Civil War Vets more than you can know. Thank you.

Thank you for the great photo honoring Laverne Fink. Leo and Lydia must be his parents? How thoughtful of you to honor them also!
