Mattie Mae Summerville
Mattie Mae Summerville was my mother's biological mother. She was the first wife of Charles Henry Cookinham, and they had 3 daughters -- Helen Elizabeth (1898-1985); Hattie (Harriet) (1900-1992); and my mom Leah (1902-1988). Mattie was only 25 when she died. She had contracted polio and went to Des Moines for a radical new procedure -- pulling her legs straight to get rid of the polio. She died on the operating table, as the strain was too much for her heart and left her husband with 3 daughters under the age of 6. Charles remarried a year later and his second wife was Prudence Summerville, Mattie's younger sister. Charles and Prudence had 1 child, Gertrude (1906-1985).

RE: Neal Henderson
First cousin twice removed. You can manage the memorial. I just wanted to link the family together and add some details. Some people like to manage. Some people like to gather the info.

Have you done any genealogy research on the Virgil family? Sarah B Virgil was my 3x great-grandmother. Do you have any clues as to who her parents were? Thank you for all the Virgil memorials you have posted. Claudia (Virgil) Harris

Agnes Puck Wiese
You may have noticed a change to this record (#20337260). I had discovered a duplicate record for her which was linked to her husband and four children, and asked the Find A Grave admin if they could merge the two records, keeping what was unique about each one.
They did merge the records, but while keeping the links FROM the records they lost almost everything else, including the links TO her record and the image of her obituary.
I found the image of her obituary in an Ancestry tree and added it, and the links from her children to her have been reinstated.
Sorry for the disruption.
Peter Smith
I am interested in this family as her brother Albert Puck (1896-1963) married a (distant) cousin, Charlotte Kinshella. Their daughter Dale is in Find A Grave (#112198114) but I have not yet found out where Albert and Charlotte are buried.

I do not know if you are aware that on your profile page there is a new edit button that has edits to fix memorials. I have probably send 25 or more to you as they do not come to your email. I did not know this either to it was brought to my attention.

Clem C Pauley
I was wondering if you would do some changes to Clem C Pauley's memorial. His real name was Clement Califax "Clem" (all we knew him by) Pauley Jr. and connect Clement Califax Pauley Jr. to his Father Clement Califax Pauley Sr. memorial#61745624 and to his Mother Marietta "Nettie: Skiles Pauley Memorial#55501632. I would appericate this and Thank you Angie

RE L.O. Midkiff and father Daniel Midkiff
Thanks for the heads up on who Lee Odous Midkiff's father was. this is a new memorial for his father...we assumed Daniel Midkiff was buried on the land he owned and provided as a cemetery for Midkiff family members, but i had no documentation about it. Teri Smith must have come up with something. There are two Midkiff cemeteries listed , unfortunately his wife , Dollie Allen; is not listed in the same one as Daniel Midkiff. I think the two cemeteries should be combined. When we visited there in 2012 we saw only the lower cemetery. One of the Bays boys told us there is another, older burial ground higher up on the mountain. We hope to go back there this summer or fall to explore further. Robert Fitch mentioned there was yet another Midkiff cemetery in very close proximity and reachable by car. We had to fend off a darned goat in the lower Midkiff cemetery. But that goat sure keeps the vegetation in check, as when we first visited this Midkiff Cemetery ( behind Eloise Bays property) we had to hack our way thru severe undergrowth and most of the tombstones were not visible. Daniel Midkiff and Dollie Allen are my husbands great grandparents. Teri is a cousin ...her grandmother and my husbands mother were sisters. We live in New England. I have to email Teri and reconnect. Thanks again

RE: Benjamin Pettyjohn
My connection is with Julia Lord Pettijohn-her parents were Henry Butler Lord and Adelia Demo; Adelia Demo and Solomon Demo-gggrandfather were siblings.
In my research with Find A Grave I like to link what family members that I have knowledge of-as it helps all those.
Benjamin and Julia had five siblings-Melburn, Maude, Carl, William and Mary Anna Pettijohn.
Thank you for your consideration.

Vickye Blatherwick
Cemetery Photo
You have posted a couple of photos of Monmouth Cemetery(Warren County, Illinois).
Is it possible to use one of your photos for individual memorials for that cemetery?
Some cemeteries are set up that the cemetery photo automatically goes on every memorial .
I do not know how that is arranged, do you?
Thanks for your help
