Finding my Aunt Laura
THANK YOU, Ben for locating and photographing my Aunt's resting place. It was a welcome email after a week of Irma prep and waiting. She came in last night and we were blessed with only wind, rain and a huge drop in temperature. Thank you for your time and dedication. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Take care.

Thank you so much for the photo you uploaded of Mary Anderson's grave in Evergreen Cemetery.
I have been searching for the parents of Anton Anderson (buried at Forest City). Her name was Mary and his father is known only as "J". a sea captain from Sweden.
This one, unfortunately, is not "my" Mary. I appreciate all your efforts to bring these people out of the shadows.

Contributors making the rules
Re: Photo request problem

This is clearly not a problem with a photo request but with a contributor making their own rules as they go along. Eventually, someone won't be scared of them and will post a photo. In the mean time, the member should be reported to site administrators.

RE: Mary Anne Krepps
Hi Ben,
I doubt they would want to, and I don't want to delete mine. I created this memorial as I wanted her to be joined with her family siblings and parents. Everyone that is family related to Mary Ann Krepps knew her real identity. It seems to me there was one more of her on find a grave listed as a famed person with find a grave as being in charge of that memorial. Dan
