I correct myself when I catch my typos.

I deleted mine. It makes no difference to me who is "first". I have made a lot of transfers to that contributor, but hope they don't ask for any more.

I am not photographing entire cemeteries any longer. I only go out occasionaly to take a pic of a relative's new marker, if not already done. Feel free to claim & take photos wherever you'd like.

Is the plot location that was denied? Why? Since the stone is in the back of the section in comparison to the front of the cemetery. No one will find it if they count rows from front of the section.
I 'added' the plot location and if someone is looking for Mrs. Dodge, I'm sure they will find her given you gave the same long description to her husband's memorial. My personal opinion is it didn't belong.

You do not need to get a photo of Rowena's headstone, the lady at the cemetery sent me a photo she snapped with her cellphone when she went out to confirm there was a headstone and the surname associated with it. I appreciate your attempts and hope I can count on you if needed again. Take care.

Your note said there were photo requests for Harry & others that already had photos on the memorials. In those instances, you can just explain under the "problem" section on the photo request that there is already a photo posted instead of taking more photos & posting them.
