Nikita, Thank you so much for your insights. As you know not everything one reads on the internet is true, so before I was adding this info to my "The Girl I left Behind" quilt I just wanted to check. As a retired Army Officer I have enjoyed the brief bios that accompanied the Block of the Month Quilt project from a quilt shop in Leavenworth KS. I have FINALLY finished the quilt top and for the backing I'm printing out brief bios on fabric to add to the back side of the quilt. As I am also a genealogist, I'm interested in being sure I have good sources... thank you for sharing yours.

|Grace (Cronin) Schmitt||RE: Capt. John Bowne|
Sorry I offended you! Can only guess that I put the wrong date with the wrong Contributor. Whenever I encounter a double entry on Find A Grave I try to let both parties know so they can get it down to just one.
Yes, Find A Grave started as a simple cemetery/burial database, but the users have made it much, much more. That's why it was sold to Ancestry.com. It has become far more than the originators ever thought, and they like the way it is going. I'm sure you've seen the posting about this on-line. If I accidentally duplicate a Memorial, or if someone duplicate mine, I would certainly want to know about it.
I'm glad you know about double dating, but apparently the other Contributor did not. I thought the diplomatic way to get it fixed was to present an explanation in both emails, rather than take any other tone. Again, I'm sorry this offended you: it was not my intention. Grace

|Bill McKern||RE: George Opdyke|
The individual who posted my Opdyke bio from Find A Grave to the page she created on Flickr has added my name and Find A Grave's to the bio. I contacted her directly after I got a reply email from Flickr which contained a ridiculously long process for making a complaint. I presume that she will do the same for anyone else's work she's made use of.

Hello, Nikita - thank you so much for your message. Maud's was one of those stories that really touched my heart, and I was honored to be able to sponsor her memorial. I do think of her now and then and revisit the memorial. I appreciate your letting me know about the updates!

|Bill McKern||RE: George Opdyke|
Thanks for the info.
I don't any problems with people making use of my Find A Grave photos and bios, as long as they acknowledge that the work originated with me.
I'll follow up on the Flickr account you mentioned.

|Lin||RE: Capt. Thomas Gamble, USN|
Thanks for mentioning Peter Gamble's memorial page, Nikita. I haven't visited it, but will.
My husband did a fair amount of research on the four brothers about seven years ago, thinking he might write a magazine article. He says he thinks he has something on Francis' burial and will check his files. I'll pass on anything we have.
I'll also check out the Public Domain status on the Thomas Gamble artwork reproduction, and do the upload if it's clear.
The Gamble sons' father was William Gamble (abt. 1755-1833), a Brigade Major in the NJ Militia during the Revolution, buried in the Congressional Cemetery, Washington, DC. I also have some filed research for him. Checking Find A Grave today, I find that, by odd coincidence, someone else created a memorial for him just last month. It has only a summary bio so far. I'll send the creator some suggestions.
I've just set up a memorial for William Gamble's 2nd wife, Ann Lee Gamble, also buried in the Congressional Cemetery. The 1st wife was the mother of the four sons. I haven't found her name or burial, but have a reference to her death as occurring in 1806.

Hi and thanks for replying- now I feel silly, but you never know who knows these things! :) Once in awhile I'll come across someone it's nice to ' gee whiz ', they won't have an idea of who it is they have made a memorial for.
Thanks so much for creating this for her- I'm just your basic history nerd, nice to see these folks here, somewhere to pay tribute to them! Very cool, I'll generally make a point of showing the other history nerds these folks are here also. Thanks again!

Noticed that you added the picture to his memorial page. Unfortunately I can't read the name of his wife - ! Could you perhaps check your original pic and give it to me? Trying to contact descendants, if any.

I am the great-granddaughter of Joseph F. Lamb. I noticed when looking at the picture of his head stone that my great-grandmother Amelia Collins Lamb is on there, however when searching for her I get the message that she isn't found. Can she be added? Thank you.

Eleazer Ogden born on - - 1751 at _______________
died at _______________ on 15 - Jun - 1826 and his ( 1st ) wife
Jemima Harrison born on - - 1757 at _______________
died at _______________ on - - 1839 married on - -
Jemima's father was also a Rev. War Soldier as was Eleazer's father Abraham.
Jemima's DOB is listed as unknown on her Findagrave memorial page. The above information is directly from the lineage section of Eleazer's DAR info, so I am very confident that this is correct. When I search their data base there is no other Jemima Ogden. Jemima and Eleazer had 1 child, Amos, who was born in 1780.

Sarah's great-grandfather was Cornelius the Scoundral--not her father, as I probably mis-typed (fast fingers); in trying to be clear, I only confused the issue. Both men were named Cornelius. The rest of the information is correct. Thank you for your corrections.

Why no transfer If you are a direct descendant of the person?
Just a question - the rules maybe rules but If you as a individual trying to show descent does make it difficult.
Am not into long narratives which some sure do.
Great of many shown on F.A.G.
