RE: F B Imlach
Above duly transferred. I shall try and find the memorial at some point and submit any edits as necessary. Edinburgh Dental School may be able to help you if you've not already contacted them.
Good luck with your project.

Thank you for adding information for Dr. Snow. Could you add additional info? Dr. Snow founded Snow Dental Company, later known as Buffalo Dental Manufacturing Company of Buffalo, NY. He's also named on over two dozen US patents, which were mostly dentistry inventions. Thank you in advance!

Hello Dr. Swanson, I am the author of a book about Dr. Pinkard. If you might be interested in having a copy it is available from the Franklin County Historical Society. Thanks for the additional photo I will try to do the rearranging to get it below Dr. Pinkard's portrait. Best regards.

RE: Dr George Wesley Spencer
I did read the PA one and very interesting. In fact, after reading it, I did a little searching for him and found his LW&T which directs re-interment after his estate was settled and whatever cemetery his wife was eventually planning to have herself buried. Looks like he died in May and probate was started in June from the various probate listings that I found for Pittsburgh.

Dr George Wesley Spencer
I received your information and thank you for it. I am not related to this person or his family - just a volunteer walking in cemeteries and then noting information on When I find a number of burials in one area that seem related, I do try to take the additional step to check on relationships and then link, if there is a relationship. So, unfortunately, I'm not able to provide any additional information other than what is already noted. However, you did mention that there is another burial designation for Dr. Spencer in PA - it would be helpful to know the other cemetery's name so that I can make mention in his NY memorial. The other thought is that I could transfer his family memorials to you since it looks like you have serious interest in Dr. Spencer. Let me know. Marie

Thank you so much for sponsoring Dr. Watling's memorial. I tried to have it be "famous" but Findagrave didn't agree with me! Thanks for recognizing this dental pioneer!

Dr Swanson,
I just added a postcard of Dr Ortman here. I have this original post card from my grandmothers archives. I really have no idea why it was in there. Is this something you would like to have?
