Louisa Figueira Silva # 25448881
I found the grave of Louisa to be unmarked. I added a photo of the plot. Please see her bio for obit and other info. Sorry there wasn't a stone for you to see but at least now you know it is unmarked and where she is. Any questions, let me know.

Tammy Harr
While photographing Tammy's stone, I noticed a stone next to her for Dorothy Louise Harr, who I assume is her mother. Just thought you'd want to know.

I have fulfilled your picture request for Anna Dechant. Please read the caption on the picture because I am not absolutely positive that this marker belongs to her. If it does not, it is my opinion that she does not have one. - Amy

John Franks photo request
Hi again. John is buried in Block 2 which has hundreds of unmarked graves. The best that can be done is for me to add an overall Block photo. Is that ok? Sorry for that outcome but unfortunately he has no stone. Let me know. Thaks.
