Yeakels @ Schoenersville Cemetery
Dear Gwynspekes,

Thank you so much for posting the tombstone photo of my cousin Clarence Yeakel and his second wife Marion (nee Harrison) Yeakel for my family and me!

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased ancestors and relatives is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is also a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us.

May God bless you and yours in all your endeavors!

With heartfelt gratitude,
Kati McSweeney

Saylor headstones
Your photo posted on 5067856, which is far superior to what was there, could also be posted to the other folks who share that headstone. (5076737 Margaret and 5067841 Edward) These two were also originally requested as well however you found another individual marker I didn't realize existed. Thanks for the addition however as stated in my photo request I was looking for replacements on the main monument that could not be read. If it isn't too much trouble for you to add your photo to Margaret and Edward's it would be nice. Thanks.

RE: Saylors at Fairview Cemetery
Your comment:
Is this photo any better?

Well lets just say if you can't tell It's time to have your eyes checked!

So much grief for just one legible photo! You think taking duplicate photos is a waste of is writing "kit glove" messages - that no matter how hard you try will still offend someone!

RE: Saylors at Fairview Cemetery
Sorry you feel offended but if you had read my message... None of these photos I'm referring to enlarge. I always thank each and every photo contributor that fulfills a photo request of mine because I know it isn't easy locating headstones and taking photos that are easy to read due to lighting conditions etc and especially when some are practically illegible. I express my gratitude for there efforts because in most every case they are well deserved. What else is required? The issues I was referring to has nothing to do with the age of the headstone and everything to do with the quality of the photo. Photos that are manipulated and compressed lose pixels and resolution that is what has happened to these in my opinion. I'm certain there are no "Ansel Adams" submitting photos to Find A Grave and no one is expecting that but seriously, tell me if any of these are up to the quality you would submit? Can you really read these? 5067856, 5047182, 5076732, 5724522, 5639221, 5685109, 5636278, 5797969. The one you submitted was fine but were no replacements to the poor ones that were requested as stated in my original photo request. If you don't want to fulfill my requests that's fine this is a voluntary site so feel free to let someone else do it. I see there are several that have retaken photos for the same reason in this cemetery. This person has submitted many photos - they aren't all the same quality thankfully most are fine based on a sampling I did, even many wonderful personal photos so it is obvious this person has taken much time and effort on Find A Grave submissions but there should be some basic level of quality on what gets submitted don't you think? Do you think it's too unreasonable that a person would want a legible photo?

Saylors at Fairview Cemetery
Thanks for the photos. I appreciate your efforts I really do however, not to sound unappreciative I was trying to get replacements for the photos that are posted. I thought I put that in my photo request. I received a message that you had fulfilled the one for Samuel
(5067856) but there is no updated photo (yet anyway). If you look at the ones posted you'll see the monument (like the one you submitted for Blanche), which include multiple individuals with birth and death dates, are grainy and illegible. They cannot be enlarged to even try to read them. The other is just a shadow of a tall monument. I believe that these images must have been copied from another source, compressed incorrectly or manipulated one time too many because the resolution is non-existent. I realize that not every photo comes out clear and the sun isn't always shining or in the right direction but posting something just for the sake of posting makes no sense. I notified the photographer because this isn't the only one like this they have posted unfortunately. I don't think she was even aware of the issue when I brought it up to her (she's posted over 3000 photos!)
If you have an updated photo for any of these I'd really appreciate you posting them. I hate to keep wasting peoples time requesting a new image. Thanks again for the photos you did post. Thank you.
