Joy, the problem is DM dosen't have any way of contacting him? Nothing on Find A Grave. Isn't that just GREAT! That's why I came to you. How did you turn this over to him/her, when there is NO way to make contact? Tis not good for someone who maintains a site.
I search high and low for my Fallen Brothers who have no record of their place of resting and to not get it posted makes me sad!

RE: Thinking Of You
Hello Joy, just got online & saw your MSG. It's always a pleasure to honor your family & wish I could be there more often.

Hoping you & yours will have a safe & happy 4th of July.

Oh BTW, thanks so much for your kind thoughts.

RE: Mary Cole Obit
No problem, I have been going through the Norwalk Hour for my research and finding obits and if possible attaching them to the grave sites. Sometimes it gives info that you can use to find other clues.
Happy Hunting!

Mary Cole Obit
Dear Joy,

I found Mary Cole's Obit in the Norwalk Hour (4/12/1920 date of newspaper). I tried downloading it to her memorial but there are too many pictures. If you would like I can email it to you.

Would you happen to have any old pictures of the fire department and my grandfather?
