Just a hello
Hello Don, just posting a hello and happy New Year message for you. You've taken photos in Kansas for me, and we also have a connection to Algoma, Wisconsin, and the Tweedale Cemetery. Don't know if you remember me, but I remember you! Hope the New Year has been kind to you.

RE: Gladyne L. Johnson Vusich
Thank you SO VERY MUCH Don Vaughn! When we left the cemetery after my Mom's service, they were lowering her casket into the ground, and after being lowered a couple of feet down, she and her casket were going to enter into pure water. as the water table was, at that time, very elevated. It made us so sad. We all knew she wasn't really going to be going "in the ground" (well, in the water), because we didn't believe she was in her body any longer, but it was just a bad last memory of our Mom and Grandma and Great-Grandma, that's for sure. I really appreciate you, and your willingness to replace our memory with an actual picture of her grave and it's marker. Please know we are all very thankful for your act of service, and we are definitely very patient too. So please - don't rush! Take your time, and we hope you go on a beautiful day, when you are feeling very well. ;) God bless, Missy Helwig and Family.

Penfield Family
Thank you for posting the bio information for William Coffin Penfield, Fred Charles Penfield and his WIFE Edna Jones Penfield in Oak Hill Cemetery. I sent you edits for each memorial which includes links to family plus dates and places. I could email the data if you would rather have it in one place - instead by individual edits.

For example: Edna Jones (# 29476146) needs to be un-linked from her brother-in-law, William Coffin Penfield (#29476068), and attached to her actual husband, Fred C. Penfield (# 29476113).

Thanks again,

RE: Charles Tucker
No, Thank you for the pictures. Charles Tucker was my Great Grandfather. I am just getting into find a grave and plan on trying to update the information on the site based on the info that I have. I really appreciated the pictures you have posted.

Are we related? Are you in Lawrence?

Thank you for all of the hard work.

A. Coleman #25235133
Don, is this your family or just someone you have entered? I took the photo request for A. Coleman in the Avoca, Iowa cemetery. I'm not positive this A. Coleman is the same as Andrew Coleman, but think it is. On the back side of this stone is Angeline Coleman 1857 to 1917. I'm guessing the stone was made when she died and that his birth date of 1857 was put on then. Am wondering if he didn't have survivors and that his death date never got inscribed.

in memory of grandma
Rev Gene Stewart Seely
Thank you for such a quick turn around in putting obituary information for this man. Do note that if you check your "edit" tab, you will see I have 3 small automated requests for his memorial:
a) Add Rev. as his title.
b) Connect him to his parents who are buried in Winfield, KS where he was born.
c) Add his place of birth & death.

If you look at his mother's memorial it actually lists her husband and her son Gene Seely from rural Baldwin, so I know I have the right parents...

Again, thanks for the quick turn around!
