Thanks for following up on Frankie Robinson's memorial. The pending edits should be waiting for you to approve under the edit tab on your profile page. Odd that they aren't! I am on my phone now but will post them for you when I am at the computer, as it is easier to navigate. Thanks!

I have notice after looking at this memorial for both Christian and Matilda Hauswald , that the headstone for them belongs to someone else. Please that a look. Many thanks. Werner
P.S. Does Christian and Matilda even have one ?

RE: Beard Cemetery
Sue, I went to FAQ- found cemeteries, there is a link to fix-update corrections forum. I'm guessing where it gives the guidelines there is Mark (person) left upper corner that has the criteria. Otherwise there are others who have used the site for corrections as can be read.
I am not familiar with your territory or cemeteries. I am in Parke, Vermillion, Vigo Co. Indiana. When I checked the Perry Co. cemetery list there is Story Cemetery with no map and 21 people there. It looks like the Bristow Cemetery, Perry Co. is associated with the Christian Church with 493 memorials Lat: 38.14222 Long: -86.71946 and up the road a bit is Beard Cemetery Bristow, Perry Co. 197 memorials and possibly associated with the Pentecostal Church Lat: 38.17735 Long: -86.68474
I have no idea which one the Story Cemetery goes with or if actually a separate one. It would be nice to correct by someone who knows the area. Find A Grave isn't going to bite anyone and someone needs to submit the information so it can be corrected. I am all for accuracy.
This is all I was able to figure out, geraldine

Mary aka Polly
Yes, we have the same thing here with a cemetery-Sugar Grove that is outside St. Bernice, Indiana but is in Edgar Co. Illinois. On FAQ there is a way to let them know about the duplicate and they can then combine them. People were in both cemeteries (hundreds).
Again, I search both numbers, and saw the dates are the same, I realize there are many people with nicknames. I moved Mary to the correct cemetery??? I asked if you had a source that Polly is one and the same and does Polly stay in the Story-Beard cem? Let me know how I may correct as I have none of Elliott's source material and have corrected many of his memorials being in the wrong cemetery. Thanks, geraldine

Perry Co-Beard cem
Well, I'm confused as I don't know Elliott's memorials, I manage them. That said, Polly is Mary Beard who is in the wrong cemetery? I have no way of knowing. Source? interment record. geraldine

Hi Sue, I think I have goofed up. I found photos you took of the Buttontown Cemetery on another site while doing unrelated research. I had some time, so I began adding your photos to the memorials here, with credit to you and Nancy Engleman Garcia. I've since learned I can't do that since they weren't my photos. I'm sorry and if you want me to delete them, I will.

RE: Edits
I thought that might be the case...I was the same and someone notified me. It is a wonderful system!

Thank you so much for your help....have been doing much research and trying to update and link their memorials.

RE: William Stevenson
You didn't do anything wrong on the memorial. You did it just fine. I just started the memorials earlier this month for the first time. I just would like to collect my ancestors to start with and go from there. If you don't mind that I care for this memorial, you will still be the original creator, it will say it on there. My ID number is #47748271.
I appreciate your work. Thank you.

Fugate grave
I was looking up some of my family that is in Galena cemetery and I looked up my grandfather Kulan O. Fugate. The picture of the headstone that you have for him is actually my parents headstone. My fathers name is Kulan as well, but he is still alive. My grandfathers is the black headstone next to it.

Mills Cemetery
I assume you're talking about the one in Crawford County, Indiana? Find A Grave assigned the place when I requested an entry for that cemetery so I doubt they will change it. I will email and give it a try though. Thank you.

May I use your photos? I will give you credit for taking them, thanks.

RE: Mrs R G Murphy Memorial# 100395093
I wish to apologize. I did not mean to sound demanding. After rereading what I wrote. I see how I came across. Thank you for the information and clarifying it for me. It is possible that this is in deed Richard Glover Murphy. He was a ancestor of mine. Thank you again and sorry for how I sounded.
