When photographing large flat stones one can pour water on them and the water will sit in the engraved letters and evaporate from the flat section making very easy to read.

Rollin Paul Shatto Memorial
Louise:

Thanks so much for the speedy edits to Rollin Paul Shatto's memorial. Much appreciated and good to have folks linked up.

I seem to have all the information for his wife's death and burial but the cemetery given in her obituary doesn't seem to exist on Find A Grave: St. Thomas Episcopal Church Memorial Garden - the church is in McLean, Va. I've Googled and tried just about everything - 4 cemeteries with this name but none near McLean. Do you know??

Best, Barry

Thanks for the memorial photo. I notice there are other Harry markers behind John's. Did you by chance photo those?

Paul Henry Holder
Thank you for placing a photo of Paul's headstone on Findagrave.com. I am trying to find the grave of Paul's younger brother Rodney Eric Holder who only lived a few days & is believe to be buried in the Old Brownsville Church of the Brethren Cemetery.

I made a memorial for Samuel E. Himes in order to connect his wife and their children and so her step children could be connected. The Samuel E. Himes memorial you had made looked like age 12 on the grave stone so I hadn't considered him as her first husband but noticed you have added as her husband and dates match up so I have deleted the one I did with unknown burial site. Thanks for helping get all this family connected as he was the missing piece of the puzzle. I was adding his granddaughter Kathryn who recently passed and trying to connect all the family. I live in Georgia and still am amazed at what we can now do on this Find A Grave. The new addition with siblings now showing on the sibling's memorial is fantastic. Now when this family starts searching they will find the family all together. I enjoyed working with you.
Blessings to you, Patricia
