RE: Goodman Photos
You're so welcome, Amy! I was really happy to
see the markers in that Greenbough Meadow plot.
From looking at the plot record, it appeared that Carrie was the only one with a marker, so it was a pleasant surprise to find the others marked, too.

Goodman Photos
Good news, Amy! I looked again in the Sunset Lawn section today and found the grave marker of Dorothy Goodman Hammock. Also, I found the plot record for Archibald Goodman and saw Carrie Goodman Pratorius listed there, so I was able to find that her second husband was Fred Christian Pratorius. There is a link to Fred on Carrie's memorial. Carrie's death certificate shows she was the daughter of S.W. Francis. Carrie and Archibald are buried in Greenbough Meadow, Lot 18. Also in that plot are E.C. Ross, his wife Florence and Emanuel A. Etie. He was the infant of Joseph R Etie and Cathryn Carrie Goodman. I haven't added memorials for the Rosses yet, but work on that tonight, unless you want to add them.

I'm sorry the photo of the marker for Archibald is so hard to read, but it's very worn and is damaged I'll try taking another photo soon at a different time of day, to see if the engraving will show up better. My photo of the baby's marker is hard to read, so I'll retake that one, too.

Re: Hamilton Goodman photo
You're very welcome. His grave marker appears to be the only one left in Sunset Lawn, Lot 54, that hadn't already been photographed. All the others in that lot, the Crombie markers, were done by Marcia Patrick. Here is a link to an obituary for Hamilton Goodman, in case you don't already have it. It is attached to the back of his burial record.

I see one of your photo requests is for
Dorothy Ruth (Goodman) Goodman, but her last name, according to her burial record and according to Hamilton Goodman's obit, was Hammock. She is also buried in Sunset Lawn, Lot 54, but I didn't see a marker for her.

Here's a link to her burial record:

I didn't find a burial record for Carrie Goodman in the 1948 records, but I see you added a note that she had remarried, so I guess she was buried under another name.
