I'd like to know what was the cause of death of Derric Vong? He seemed to be lovely guy. I have never met him but that's pity he passed away.

I will look into it and let you know if I find anything
|Tammy F||Joseph and Mary Shipley|
I thought you might like to know that between the graves of Joseph and Mary Shipley, I found the grave of James Robert Shipley, b: 8 Apr 1902, d: 24 Sep 1905. I have a photo of his grave marker, as well as photos of the three grave markers together and the surrounding area.
Please let me know if you want any or all of these pictures. I'll be glad to send them to you.

Sorry. The photos are deleted now. I kept pulling up a duplicate record (110331617) instead of yours, so I thought it was done already.
You should contact them & ask them to delete the record.
|Corri Ackerman||RE: Helen Irma Eaves Amunrud|
I was going through some old Find-A-Grave messages and saw yours. I double-checked Helen Amunrud's memorial and saw that I had deleted the photos sometime in the past as you had requested. I wanted to contact you to make sure you were aware of this. You originally had stated that you wanted me to delete them so you could add some more photos to her memorial.
|Mark McCrady||RE: E. Gibbs & wife - Greenwood Cem.|
You are welcome, Kevin, I was glad to do it.
|Tonia||RE: Hamiltons @ Park Hill Cem.|
Happy to do it, still looking for those elusive remaining Hamiltons!

I'd be happy to if I can find her grave. I don't live in Barry, but am here visiting for a few weeks. I've been taking photos of the graves on the request list as I see them in the cemetery (just six so far). Your "Mollie" was right at the entrance, easy to find! Will continue to look for your aunt.

|dirk bailey||Samman request at Rose Hill Corpus Christi|
call the cemetery office and get the section/lot and grave numbers. They don't like to do look ups for non family members.
office number is (361) 882-5497
ask them to verify if there is a headstone too - they keep that info on file.
|Genfem||RE: Johan Christian Berkenbuel (105281569)|
Hey Kevin find a grave had me take the down because the cemeteries were unknown.
You need to get hold of Dan Berkebile he was the last one to visit the church and village in Germany (as did several others over the years)and he talked to Manfield Schumacher, a village historian. Would love to have the photo copies or photos of the records if you get them. I've lost so much over the years with computer crashes.
The new Berkebile books are recreations and additional info found after 3 crashes.
Perhaps you could look and see if there are any cemetery records while you are there or baptismal records (I believe there were some female relatives who came to America and think I have found some records for them but they were not included because I had not verified them. (keep in mind graves were sometimes reused in Germany)
The village is Birkenbuel
