RE: Stanley Danko
Yes, we did take other pictures at the Danville National Cemetery.

When we got there FindAGrave had about 25 open requests and we were able to get about 20 of them.

We were quite surprised but grateful as I know what it's like to be on the "wanting a picture" end of things.

Take care.

RE: Stanley Danko
Hello, Doreen,

So here's the story on how we took the photo.

My wife and I were scheduled to fly into Orlando, FL on the morning of September 9, 2017.

Due to Hurricane Irma, we decided not to go there.

So we took a road trip, part of which involved visiting friends in Danville, IL.

I love doing things for Find A Grave so we found this cemetery in Danville and did what we could.

We're glad we could help.

Take care.

RE: Ernest Kaiser
Hi Doreen, I'm afraid I have no information on Ernest. All of my info has been through the Simpson line, (Ernest's father's other wife it appears).

RE: Solomon Frink
You're welcome. I left the request because I've known cemeteries to take stones to be repaired and returned them later, or to find the grave area to be photographed without the stone present. I've even had my dog sit where someone is laid to rest with no stone present. Perhaps one of these scenarios will happen. I never really STOP looking for the designated plots, it just takes time sometimes.

I am a Crouch as well and would like to discuss your Crouch family with you to see if there is a connection. I hope to hear from you.

I rarely do this, but before approving this one, I'd like to know your source as to his marriage(s). Thank you.
