Hello, Trudy!

I will check all the local cemeteries until I locate the plots, or discover that they are not here. Hopefully it will be the former. Either way, it will be my personal mission to see that this gets done.

Alderete Family
Hello, Trudy! I went to Carmel to take pictures of all the requested Alderete family members there but the employees couldn't find any for: Abe, Louis, Luisa, or Juana. The other intel of note is that they do not locate grave sites by blocks, and rows, so I am wondering if perhaps the incorrect cemetary was listed.

Blacker Dukes
Trudy, along with the completed requests for Jerry and Rosie Dukes are Hazel Dukes Lewis, d 1916, Marie Agnes Tongue, d 1968, Henry Lee Tongue , d 1981 and Marie Whitman, d 2003. None of these individuals have memorial pages, but all have headstones. If you care to create pages for them I will add the photos. Let me know, thanks Jim

RE: Memorial for William Blacker
This is what is listed with the photo submitted at Find A Grave:

"No date has been engraved on this side of the gravestone, but the opposite side has Anna's name and dates."
Added by: Linda J Stitt

Photo at this website also shows no dates:

Information at the preceding link also shows no dates:

I think there are no dates to be found on his gravestone, so where you found those dates must be some other source.

RE: Memorial for William Blacker
Thanks Trudy,

I took a look, but didn't see any prime source document that gave William's dates of birth & death. I'm wondering if these came from a family bible?

Memorial for William Blacker
Hi Trudy,

I'm wondering if you could tell me the source for the dates of birth and death listed on the Find A Grave Memorial# 114163658 for William Blacker?

William Blacker
Birth: Jun. 4, 1811
Frederick County
Virginia, USA
Death: Mar. 31, 1878
Clinton County
Indiana, USA

I'm doing research on this family for my son who is a descendant & cannot locate that information other than at your memorial. I did find the listing at the Indiana GenWeb site, but again with no dates, and the photo submitter also noted there were none for William.

Thanks for your work here and any help is greatly appreciated.

RE: Photos West Harry & Evelyn
You're welcome for the photos. I enjoy going out and taking these photos and do my best to take great pictures to honor the deceased. No uncomposed quickies with a cellphone camera at weird angles.

I thought I'd also let you know, there appears to be a duplicate memorial for Evelyn, # 146921876, that includes her obituary and family links but no cemetery info.

Hello there!
I fulfilled your photo request today for Loretta Joan Dawson. I don't know if your on the hunt for other Dawson's, but I thought you might find it useful to know that there are two other graves also with the name of Dawson buried fairly close to Loretta. One is Nell Dawson and the other is Louis Dawson. Could these two be her parents?
There is not a created memorial for either Nell or Louis but I did take the headstone photos for both just in case you need them.

Let me know, its no trouble for me to add the photos if you want to create the memorials.

Nell N. Dawson 1913-1973
Louis Henry Dawson 1912-2001.

RE: China Row
I'm sorry I couldn't find a stone. There just aren't any there where the sign is. Like none! I thought it was so sad.

Lawrnce Family in Concordia
Just when you thought everything was settled...I was walking the American Catholic Section when Betrice Lawrence's marker decided to say hello!. I found the Lawrence Family Plot. Charles, Bersabe, and Maria's grave are still unmarked. There a Jesusita Lawrence as well a set of twins from Josephina Lawrence and a Avelino Aguilar. I can't figure out the family tree but I'm sure you can. I've updated the GPS coordinates (they are within feet of the correct location)

RE: Lawrenc Photos
You are so very welcome. I think it took a month of checking and rechecking. I bet I researched all the readable markers 2 graves in all directions to confirm the locations. The burials are near the transition of a different section of the cemetery. On top of all that it appeared that some of the readable stones that I use for references had been moved. It was pretty challenging find. I'm still wondering whether grave 4 is another Lawrence family member. One of the burial records indicated that it was a "Family Plot". All the plots would have had to be purchased at the same time to insure burials right next to each other. I usually put a hat down marking the "head" of unmarked burials. It gives the requestor a sense of orientation to the photo.

RE: Agnes Hill
Sorry for the confusion.

This Agnes Hill is indeed on the back side of her husband's stone, and is the marker number that showed up in the request.

There is not another Agnes Hill listed on the Fort Snelling site, but I will check the back side of the stone for Robert Richard Hill, but I am not optimistic.

I get out there about once a week, so will let you know.

I just spoke to Holy Cross. I wanted to verify there was no headstone for several of the graves we photographed yesterday. I was told Section K has many unmarked graves. I asked if Joseph DeMeceli was in a paupers grave and was told yes. I was told he is buried with two other individuals to whom he is not related. It was a "mass" grave for those who could not pay. Apparently there are many graves similar to his in Section K. In my own genealogy I've discovered a few family members also being buried like Joseph. Markers are nice but the lack of one doesn't diminish someone's importance to all.

Knowing about section K only makes me feel more warmly towards that tucked away, steep hillside Section.

You're welcome.
My teenage son & I do this together and we are always disappointed when we don't find a marker. We have several family members buried out at Holy Cross, even a Great grandfather without a marker. Unfortunately Holy Cross isn't maintained very well at all. We tried to find the reference markers but most were under years of grass. We really believe the images of the grass area we photographed is where your loved one is.
Good luck in your research.

Hi, he has a very difficult stone to read and he sits partially in the shade. I will see if I can get a different photo on a different day.

Phillips & DeMeceli graves
Hello Trudy,

I went to Holy Cross Cem. to photograph the graves & I believe they are both unmarked. I will go back out & solicit staff help, just to be sure. If it turns out that they are unmarked, do you want the gravesite flagged & a photo taken of it?
