I'm starting to see way too many headstones being cleaned. This troubles me. It is not your responsibility to touch or disturb a headstone. Cleaning them with a power washer is on so many levels of wrong it's scary. Using any detergent is also wrong, especially bleach as it seeps into the cracks of the stone and weakens it until it will crumble.
If you must clean a stone, soap and water and elbow grease with a soft bristled brush are the only things you should use.

Incorrect information for 90643383
Hi. I really appreciate the efforts of folks like you. I hope you don't take offense that I have found something incorrect in the entry regarding Ruby Young (1880-1970).
She was not the child of Charles and Ethel Young. That Ruby was born about 1922.
The Ruby buried in Buchanan Cemetery married Walter Roscoe Young 8 Nov 1940 in Perryville, Missouri. She was born in Tennessee 3 July 1880 and died 24 April 1970 in Chester, Illinois, per her obituary in the Southern Illinoisan, Sunday, April 26, 1970, p. 33.
Thank you.

RE: EngelhardtsobB
I haven't talked to the Lutheran Church at Bremen, yet. I need to do that though. I could probably message them on Facebook, too. I did talk to the pastor at St. John's in Chester, he said they would see what they had ASAP. I think I need to talk to the sexton at Evergreen Cemetery and see if the two children that died in 1890 are there, as well.

I have been to the County Clerks office and I found a book for St. John's in Chester, that has several index listings for Engelhardts. I only looked up a few of the entries, but will go back when I have more time. It appears, all of the Engelhardts in Randolph County are in Baldwin and are of earlier times, like late 1890's to early 1900's.

RE: John Marlen
On the photo request for John Marlen, the plot information is E-11333. That headstone does say John Martin. I have found in the past sometimes the names are similiar and there could be a mistake. However, there is no John Marlen buried in chattanooga national according to can delete the photo, or wait for further information.
Please advise what you want me to do. I will be glad to help anyway i can.

Ben Andrews
I posted the photo of Ben's headstone. The grass hasn't been mowed, probably due to our very hot weather, but I cleared as much away as I could. I do have the information for his bio and will work on that after I post the rest of my photos today,

Thanks for the heads up on the duplicate. I've sent a merge request to edit. (This is my cousin's mother, and I'm not sure how the dupe ended up happening.)

I added photos for all the Bonds at Bayview that didn't have photos, except the 2 in the mausoleum.

RE: Catherine House Shingleton
You left me a message saying you wish you knew "where her grave is". Whose grave are you looking for?
