Willows Catholic Cemetery http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?pag...20Cemetery&

Willows Cemetery http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?pag...20Cemetery&
this cemetery is the same and should only be listed as the Willows Cemetery, a findagrave volunteer entered all the names on your sight both Catholic Section and Regular section that was great, then another volunteer reentered all the interred in the Catholic Section again, this has caused many many duplicate memorials, example type in just the last name Hoever, Billiou, Cecil and there is a listing for both the Catholic Section and then again in the regular section. The reentering of all interred in the Catholic section has caused many many duplicates. This Cemetery is only one Cemetery and should not be listed as The Willows Catholic Cemetery, after calling the cemetery they advised the name both Catholic and non catholic is called The Willows Cemetery District address for the cemetery is 800 E Wood St,Willows, CA 95988
(530) 934-7331
Hope we can merge these cemeteries to get rid of the duplicate name memorials

Fanthom Chapel Cemetery in Jackson Parish, Louisiana:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2291897

The name is misspelled, it should be Frantom Chapel Cemetery and it is located in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=csr&CScn=Frantom.
The memorial in Jackson Parish (33426577) is also listed in the Frantom Cemetery (101582827). I have sent a request for the memorial to be removed from the Fanthom Cemetery, but no action. There is no Fanthom Cemetery in Jackson, it needs to be deleted.


First Apostolic Church Cemetery in Jackson Parish, Louisiana:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2185958
The name is incorrect, it should be Greater Apostolic Church Cemetery. The memorials should be moved into the page for Greater Apostolic Church Cemetery: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2185958
and delete the First Apostolic Church Cemetery.
