What a beautiful portrait!

We are presuming you've tried contacting that cemetery and have had no luck. Yet you will have to reach them in order to place the new markers. Is that what you want help with?

About locations - Norma is in Scott County, Tennessee. Sunbright is in Morgan County, Tennessee.

Elmer's death record should be filed at the county where he died and should state his place of burial.

Ditto for Essie (Vester?) - his death record should state his place of burial.
