Bio Photo I'm just a guy who became interested in tracking down my family tree, which led me to Find a Grave.
So now I'm trying to help out filling a few photo gaps in nearby cemeteries.

marker with first names only
That's a tough one. The only thing I can think of is that maybe the cemetery's records will show who those people's parents were. I came across something similar in our local cemetery, where the markers on three or four side-by-side graves had only initials. Luckily the City's website has a great map and database for the cemetery, and I was able to figure out who they were for sure. If I remember right, though, doing a search on Find A Grave's using just the initials found some of them, since whatever list was used to enter most of the cemetery on Find A Grave had the plot info. Good luck!

Thank you so much for the photograph Mr. Carter. I am in the process of tracing my great uncle and your photograph is a step in that direction. Harry Harrison.

I wouldn't think there would be identical markers in different cemeteries. It would make the most sense that she added the picture to the wrong cemetery.

Anna was apparently his first wife--the one you added last month is with his second wife, Evelyn. Maybe you can get Janet Erdman to add a note stating that he is most likely not buried there, but instead where his second wife will be buried.

He was not a brother of the twins, Ora and Orpha, but Ora's first husband. It's very interesting that he and Orpha died one day apart.
