RE: Smith Family
I'm from Boone. My father is Robert, son of Chuck and Eva Smith. I remember great uncle Joe coming down from South Dakota to visit at grandma's. I met Joe, Kate, Elmer, and Ruth when I was a kid. Met a lot of relatives at some of the reunions at Don Williams shelterhouse years ago. I found a lot of information on this site. Never knew anything about the generations that came before my grandpa and grandma and now I do. And, I've always thought I have Irish blood in me and now I know I do. My father has cancer and only a number of months left. I was showing him all the information I had found on here and he learned a lot that he hadn't known before, too. Uncle Ron has cancer also and probably not much longer either. Donny died a few years back of lung cancer. Aunt Nancy and uncle John are doing well. What is your husband's name? Do you live around Boone?

I've been messing around on and ended up finding links about my grandparents. I am Robbi Smith, son of Robert Leroy Smith, grandson of Charles and Eve Smith, and just found out that my grandmother's parents names were John Elmer and Mary Breheny Smith. I am very interested to know more about the history of my family. And, what relation I might be to you.

RE: Hammrich's
Just click on the edit button on the memorial and it will bring up six options. Click on the last option "Suggest any other correction or addition" and just type in 'requesting transfer'. This is the correct way to request a transfer from anyone on Findagrave. Some people will also want to know how you are related, but that doesn't matter to me.

RE: one of Larry Moore Memorial
Maude Ethylene Whiting -
Find A Grave won't delete a memorial unless it's an exact duplicate; since the burial sites are different, they'll ignore any request I sent through.
Please advise.

RE: one of Larry Moore Memorial
I'm a bit confused - Larry shows her buried at Fresno, Ca and you have her in Green County, Iowa.
I don't want to post a photo from the wrong cemetery on her memorial in Iowa. Do you know where she's buried? Is the stone in California a cenotaph?

Added by imagal49 on Jul 13, 2014 5:20 PM

RE: one of Larry Moore Memorial
Sure will - it'll take Find A Grave a while to delete the duplicate but I've put in the request.

Grace Woodward Jackson
e: Maude Kelley 1884-1938 Thank you for creating her memorial. She was my grandmother's sister. Her husband, Fred Kelley was a longtime resident of Scranton community. He died 15 Nov 1965 at Jefferson, Greene, Iowa. I have not found where he is buried and I can't imagine him not being buried in Scranton Cem. Do you have anyway of checking this out for me? Do you live in Scranton? I lived w/Uncle Fred Kelley in Scranton when I was 10 years old. Thank you for any help or suggestions.

Re Slocums FAG #23165862 & #23165863
Just thought I would drop you a note Betty.
We have received the photos, by grave walker, for the Slocum couple.
I know their dau, whom I've been doing family research, would appreciate their being connected.
At first their site was not located, but Betty knew there was a marker. Now the phot has been added, it would be a great time to "get them together" to speak.
Thanks for getting them on Find A Grave, & you can also update missing data from the marker!

RE: Pearl Umbaugh
I am related to Maude E. (Porter-1st cousin 2X removed)and Harry Franklin Marchant who adopted Pearl (Umbaugh) and Irvin Christian's daughter, Doris Pearl Christian Marchant. The 1930 Census shows her as a "roomer" with the Marchant family. The 1940 Census shows her as "adopted daughter" but still shows the Christian surname. I'm guessing Pearl died after Doris' birth sometime. Her father, Irvin, was first married to Nora Ethel Bellah (1887-1919) in 1909 and had two daughters, Paulne C. (1911-1997) and Carmen (1914-2003). Then, married Pearl Unbaugh Gould who was widowed in 1917 when her husband Morris H. Gould died (they had one son, Harold Roy (1915-2002). Pearl is buried with Morris and Find A Grave shows her surname as Gould although she was married to Christian when she died. After Pearl's death, Irvin married another Pearl, Pearl Robinson (1907-1998), and they had one son, Robert I. Christian (1932-1998). Doris Pearl Christian Marchant married Eugene B. Dehoney and died in 2003 in Nampa, Canyon, Idaho. They had three children, Frank Warren, Ruth, and Robert W. If you have access to, check my tree out (Beckman/Botzen-Herfert/Porter 2_15_2009)as I have a lot of sources for the family and some obituaries.
