The Nass's
Hi - Emma and Herman are also my great grandparents. Thanks for adding this info including the family photos I have never seen.
My grandmother was Carrie Nass and my grandfather was Louis Fults (I see it's spelled Fultz in the family list in the obits.)
much gratitude... so are we distant cousins?

Burial place for Samuel Slye
I have just been provided some research papers from a couple of ladies who were DAR members. Their notes say that Samuel and his wife Nancy "Ann" Prather Slye are both buried "In Family Cemetery, on old SLYE Farm, Monroe Twp." The notes say that Ann Prather's tombstone reads death as of 26 July 1870, but her death record reads 30 July 1870. Do you know if their bodies were moved to this cemetery?

Rose Valley Cemetery
Hello Suzy. I lost the names and phone numbers of individuals who maintain the burial records for this cemetery and am hoping you might be able to help me out.? I'm remodeling our home and packed it away in an unknown box. :(

Samuel Slye
Would you please consider transferring this memorial to me. Samuel Slye was my gr-gr-gr-gr-gr grandfather, his daughter Amelia was my gr-gr-gr-gr grandmother. Thank you so much.

William Frost 1470-1498
I am working on ancestors and have found your Find A Grave site for William's death. You have linked a Mary Bishop as his spouse. However, the birth date for Mary Bishop is 22 years after William's death. Perhaps she was married to a different William. I have found this same error on several family trees out on the Internet.
Just thought you might like to adjust your data.
Don standish (14th great grandson of this William).
BTW - can't yet locate/verify William's actual spouse.

I noticed that this was on the stone of Emil Soderlund. Do you know what this is?

RE: Isaac B Russell - Stockport
That's a good idea. And then delete the one I did? Your picture of his headstone is better than the one I took.

I was having trouble later in the day trying to add new pictures. I'd get through the first couple of steps, then on the last step it wouldn't show up on the page. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Isaac B Russell - Stockport
Hi, Isaac B Russell is my great, great grandfather. He is buried in the Stockport Cemetery in Ostrander, WA. I did a search for him but didn't find him, so I added a page. Only then, did I find your page for him. Your information is correct but I added a couple of photos to mine. It seems prudent to blend these two memorials. Thank you for any help you can give me.

New EDIT procedure
Just thought I'd pass on the following information to you and anyone else. There was no official notice to contributors, it just happened one day.

News December 2013
FindAGrave has implemented a new way of handling edits. You no longer get an e-mail in most cases. Go to your "Contributor Tools" and see if the tab that says "Edits" has a number next to it. If so, those are pending edit requests. All you have to do is "accept" them and that's all you need to do. No need to go to each memorial.

Some add'l info on a couple of Memorials
Hi, Suzy!
Hope things are going better for you. While working on my family history, I came across some add'l info on two people that are listed as buried at the Greenlawn, Portsmouth, Scioto, Ohio Cemetery:

Jacob R. Bender, Jr.
(Find a Grave Memorial: 93722261)
Born: 27 Dec 1863
Died: 3 Oct 1932
(His parents were Jacob R. Bender, Sr.(born Germany) and Mary Frances Unknown Maiden Name at this time. They married 8 Jul 1856)

Jacob Bender Jr. married:

Margaret Martha Slye
(Find a Grave Memorial:91842842)
on 16 Dec 1907, Portsmouth, Ohio

She was born: 1853
Died: 13 Feb 1936
(Dau. of Samuel E and Mary
Frances Buckley Slye)
Survived by one son, Ralph

(The additional dates are from Jacob R. Bender, Jr.'s Obituary in the Portsmouth News 4 Oct 1932.
I have a copy of the newspaper if you'd like it.
Or if you'd like I can adopt the site for Margaret
, up to you.
I'm wondering if there's a stone next to Jacob's for Margaret. I'm not too far away and will try to check it out later on. Just wanted to share this information to help you on all the good work you've done.

Hi Suzy, It's in Kalispell, Montana on private property. Why do you ask?

RE: Kenneth Root
I dont know when I will get out to the cemetery again to take another picture. I dont know if we will have cooperative weather either ( to get a pic of a dry headstone). Maybe put in another photo request and someone else might get out there faster than I will.

and was married to Irene. ( Just to give you an idea of who I am)
Anxious to hear from you. Hopefully you get back to me soon. Im trying to get this done for Christmas. Ive been working on this close to a year now.

RE: Masonic Memorial

Just send an email to and tell him what you want to do. All you have to include is:
your member number 46529693
our name and member number 46915548
Masonic Memorial Park, Tumwater, Thurston, WA

I'm sure the other admins can do this as well but Mark is the one we have dealt with and has been very prompt-usually within a day.

Moving and not feeling well-that's a lot of stress. I hope your feeling better real soon and the move goes smoothly.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do,

RE: Masonic Memorial
Hi Suzy,

If it would be of help to you, yes, we will take over management of your memorials in Masonic. If you haven't requested a bulk transfer before let me know and I'll tell you how the other members did it.

I'm sorry, I didn't see your message about taking a break, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered you with the edit request. Guess I should always check profiles first.
