I recently filled your photo request for this person, 2 views, a close up and an area view.
I also added the GPS location. I also took and posted photos of nearby graves.
Did this meet your expectations?

Thank you very much for all your help.

No response yet from the two Hess memorials.

RE: Princeton Cemetery
So I have found two - Jacob Hess and Rhoda Rouse Hess, that should be in the Ontario cemetery.
I'm going to contact the memorial manager and see if she can move them.

Can you confirm the location of the BC cemetery?
49.448444,-120.498317
on Cemetery Rd, with the cross street Copper Mountain Rd.

RE: Princeton Cemetery
Gosh, thanks for getting back to me so quickly.
This can be fixed by posting in the Cemetery Corrections Forum.

What I think has happened is that the cemetery was created years ago when it was possible to enter just a town name and Canada - ie: Princeton Canada.
A couple of years ago Find A Grave entered provinces for all listings that did not have one listed, and several cemetery listings ended up in the incorrect province.

There is another Princeton Cemetery listed and it is in Ontario with just about the same cemetery sign photo. You can also see it on Google Street View.

But there are probably memorials in the BC one that belong in the Ontario one. I was just trying to go one by one to see if I can find some old ones around 2006 when the cemetery photo was added.

It's all kinda confusing and will need some work.

RE: Arthur Locke Acorn's wife
The marriage information was already on the memorial from the familysearch transcription. Now that they're online, I corrected the spelling of Morrish (familysearch had it as Morish). See #97801321.

Have a nice weekend!

Hello Mel,
Could you resend me the parent links for little Ralph Petty. The numbers you provided are a "No Match". You did not provide the names so I was unable to do a search for them.

Thanks
Judy

RE: Thomas Dale
It is so easy to duplicate a memorial. We all have done it & I always appreciate it when someone lets me know that is what I have done.

The volunteers will need you to call Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. SH will not provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed to in order for requests to be filled. Once you have the location, please add it to your request.

You can also go through the SH website at this address: http://www.dignitymemorial.com/en-us/about-us/contact-us.page

Click the third tab that says "Other Requests." Fill in the blanks. Where it says: " What is your request in regard to?" use the drop down menu and select "other." In the message put the name and birth and death dates of the person you are looking for and that they are buried at Sparkman Hillcrest in Dallas, Texas. Once SH has replied, add the information to your photo request.

Thank you for your help.
