Hi, Sorry also put a picture on # 125365440 the stone has a different wife's name then you have. If it's an extra wife or something, please feel free to copy the picture and use it what ever way you want

Added Marker photo for her and husband. FYI the Stone reads 1953. I don't know which is correct but thought I would mention it. Cheers

Gentry meredith-Salem Cemetery
I have taken a photo of a very hard to read stone at Salem - the first letter of the first name is a G - it is in the Meredith line of markers.

RE: RE:Jams Lafayette Dowdy
Had to put a link in the bio. I couldn't add her as a daughter without her mother as a spouse. The poster of her memorial could add him as a parent, then it would be automatic.

Gentry Meredith-Salem Primitive Baptist
I returned to this cemetery today - I took someone with me in case I had missed this one.
Sorry, still no luck - I even looked for TC & MA Meredith - there is a tall one with Mary Meredith on it and one with Mary A. & J.F. Meredith - but the dates are too old.

RE: RE:Mary Lou Gehringer tombstone
You are more than welcome. I also took photos of the others on the plot. Please let me know if you'd like those as well.

Photo Request in Holy Cross cemetery Detroit MI
I noticed that you have one or more photo requests for people buried in Holy Cross cemetery in Detroit MI. There cemetery office has permanently closed, all of their records were sent to the Our Lady of Hope cemetery office. Please call them at (734) 285-2155 to get the plot location of your loved ones, this way find a grave volunteers in the area can accurately locate the stone.

Glen Haven, Winter Park, FL
I'm sending you this message because I see you have a photo request for Glen Haven in Winter Park. This cemetery refuses to provide a plot location, citing "invasion of privacy" and requires a notarized letter from the family to provide information which is usually freely given upon request by every other cemetery I've been to. This is SO frustrating for photo volunteers, and those simply requesting a photo of a grave.

I just sent an email to the Florida Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association in Tallahassee to complain about Glen Haven's refusal to provide plot locations, and how they treat volunteers. Perhaps something can be done if enough people complain.

Their website is and the email address I sent it to is:

I photographed the entire Coyner Springs cemetery in Novemeber 2010, and if there is not a photo on the cemetery page, I could not find it. There are a lot of unmarked graves in that cemetery.
