Hello--I uploaded a picture of Micah Stetson's are on a family spire. I have additional photos of this spire, some with names other than those you have requested. I'd be happy to get these photos to you. You can then decide how you want to proceed. Please let me know if you'd like them.

|L Eriksson||Lieut Josiah Keene duplicate|
I am well aware of the fact he has two memorials. In fact, I informed you of the fact he is at Crystal Lake Cemetery after creating one and finding you had one with "Unknown Cemetery". I requested - see email below- that you work with Dolley12@ec.rr.com to iron out the discrepancies, since much of my bio came from him. As I said, I would be happy to delete mine when I know you have contacted him and have reconciled the differences. Until that is done, I will not be removing mine, since I had visited the cemetery and found his grave. Any questions, please contact me.

Finding his grave at Crystal Lake Cemetery, Hennepin Co MN, I created a memorial, not realizing you already had made an "unknown burial" memorial. Another contributor gave me more information which I then added as a biography. I would be happy to delete my memorial but would appreciate it if you and he could work together to iron out a few discrepancies between the memorials. You can reach him at Dolley12@ec.rr.com. Since I don't know what sources either of you used, it makes more sense for you two to work this out.
Also, there is another memorial posted for him in Ocean View Cemetery Maine. He is not buried there but is memorialized on one face of his father's monument. I have informed that contributor of the fact he is in Crystal Lake and hopefully he will make a note of it.
Please contact me if you have any questions.

Cemetery records has name as Samuel Hedge. No stone found but there are several stones that are unreadable. No burial record found for Mary Hedge. There are many records of burials that the cemetery has misplaced.

Roger ... I believe that you are a relative of Louis Sherman Warfield.
I may have some information to share with you regarding David Louis Warfield - passed away in an accident in 1935. Could you contact me.

Would you check to make sure CSM Shell was buried at Kansas Veteran's Cemetery for me please? I know you are there a lot and I would appreciate it.
The reason I'm questioning it is because his former spouse is buried at Ft Riley Cemetery.

|Dennis D. Meyer||RE: obituaries|
I will tell you again fine sir, every edit I send you is coming from our web site and we (funeral home) have been given permission to use this information. It is -not- a blatant policy violation of FIND A GRAVE to use living family members in a memorial:
What about the privacy of living family members?
An individual's right to privacy disappears when they are deceased. The opinions of the relatives of the deceased fall on all sides of the question. Some people are angry to find a loved one when they come to Find A Grave, even if the memorial was added by another relative, as is usually the case, and some people are elated and send us notes of thanks for building an online memorial to their family member. If an immediate family member contacts us and wants information removed, we generally do so as a matter of respect for their wishes but we treat each request on a case by case basis. The names of living survivors will be removed from the biography section of a memorial upon request.

|Richard Botkin||Elhanon Botkin|
Roger, I believe Elhannon is buried in an unmarked grave beside his parents in the graveyard on Swindleing Gap road near the Jackson/ Clay county line of Kentucky. According to his military records he was sent home from Vicksburg to Clay county, Ky in August of 1863 due to illness. He died in September, 1863 at his home near the graveyard. I have visited the graveyard and have photos of his parents monuments. There are several unmarked graves nearby with small stones (rocks), one of which is probably Elhanon's .

|ELAINE GUSTAFSON||RESTING PLACE OF ELIAKIM "ELL" TORRANCE|
HE IS RESTING WITH HIS WIFE AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS AT LAKEWOOD CEMETERY IN MINNEAPOLIS, MN. HE IS SHOWN ONLY AS ELL TORRANCE AND HIS SON IS SHOWN AS ELL TORRANCE JR. WHEN I SAW IN A BIOGRAPHY HE WAS A JUDGE AND LIVED IN MINNEAPOLIS, I JUST GUESSED HE WAS AT LAKEWOOD. SO I CHECKED THEIR SITE. HE DIED FEB. 18, 1932.
THERE IS A VERY GOOD BIOGRAPHY I FOUND ON GOOGLE BY ENTERING ELIAKIM TORRANCE. IT IS ON THE usgwararchives.net/mn/hennepin/bios/1923/torrance.txt
I WAS TRYING TO PROVE A MR. KNAPP WAS A CIVIL WAR VET INFO FROM AN INVITATION MY GRANDFATHER RECEIVED FROM HIS LEGION POST IN 1936 TO CELEBRATE MR. KNAPPS 97TH BIRTHDAY I BELIEVE I HAVE ENOUGH PROOF AND WILL GO TO THE LOCAL PIONEER MUSEUM THAT ENTERED HIM ON FIND A GRAVE TO PROVE HE WAS A VET AND A GAR MEMBER. THE MINNESOTA GAR IS WHERE I FOUND MR. TORRANCE'S NAME AND LOOKED HIM UP AND FOUND HIS FINAL RESTING PLACE FOR YOU
THANK YOU FOR FINDING VETERANS

There is a book of transcriptions of this cemetery in the Erie County Library, and when the transcriptions were made several years ago there was no indication of a stone for Briggs Stetson. After searching the entire cemetery I found his two wife's stones, but not his.

|Bee Flagg||John Rigdon King|
While I cannot provide you with more information, I can give you a clue to finding more. If you search "John Rigdon King" [with quotation marks on each end] you may find additional information. Below is a snippet of free information in the Baltimore Sun Archives. This also changes the date of his death.
Baltimore Sun has an article titled 'John Rigdon King's will filed for probate' dated 3/16/1934
The will of John Rigdon King, Civil War veteran and a past commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, who died March 3, was filed for probate yesterday in the Orphans' Court. The Fidelity Trust Company as named as executor. Mr. King was awarded the Purple Heart in 1932. He...

I appreciate and enjoy reading the many muster records you notate on Civil War memorials. I run into them very often. Thank you for taking the time to research and post.

|Loyal Limb||Henry Lineback|
The cemetery office told me the only Henry Lineback buried there was born in the 1900's so I assumed we had the wrong one. When I checked that grave today to my surprise it was him. I added the photo to his memorial. He needs a veterans grave marker.

Accepted your edit, bit also put back Grob as her maiden name, since to remove it from there would negatively impact searches for her by maiden name.
