I think we need some kind of documentation for her maiden name. Was Poe first & now requesting change to Williams. I am removing all maiden names until we have primary documentation.

Duplicates
You can still delete Your own memorial , but If someone else transfers one to You , then You cannot.

A lot of people were deleting memorials and redoing them.

Thanks for all

RE: transfers
If You would like to make Your own memorial without My name , that will be o.k. with Me. Just make the new one and transfer old one back to Me and I will delete it.

Find A Grave changed it where We cannot delete memorial unless it is a duplicate and You have to go through them.

You are very welcome. Your kindness goes such a long way.

transfers
Sorry that I have taken so long , I could just transfer , but wanted to contact You also.

Some may say I am hard to deal with while others would say I am a peach.
I consider each transfer and person seperately. While I may transfer all the memorials that one person ask's for while I may refuse another.

First I consider the request, how personable and considerate. You won Me there. Those who seem to have an entitlement and make demands lose there.

Also , I look at the memorial and see what I have added and is this person a relative of mine or Your's. I added very little and am not related.

The way to win with Me is when I look and see that a person also contributes and makes a difference. I like for people to add flowers , add photo's or sponsor the memorial. Some just collect the names that others have added and do not even add a free flower out of respect. They also do not make any family connections.

I love the photo You added and also that You have added the rest of her family and have done such a great job.

I explained all of this hoping that just one person will read and understand the other folk's feelings on here.

So many great people on here , but so many disrespectful also.

Thank You for Your kindness and I will be transferring this memorial immediately.

Dear Kitty,

I don't know if you do transfers, but I would love to maintain Mary Virginia's
memorial if you are not related to her. She was my Daddy's first cousin and my
first cousin, once removed.

Thanks for your consideration.

RE: Basford
I was wondering if anyone had surveyed the Siloam Cemetery. There is a headstone north of the path dividing the cemetery that is broken with only the bottom portion remaining. I was told by one of the cousins that it is the headstone of Henry B. Basford (1847-1887)- John's father. Do you have a record of this? Has there been any written record of the burials before the record made in 2000?

RE: Basford
Ruth Ann,
I haven't gotten back to the Morehead area for a couple of years and haven't searched for positive proof of Laura Wills' marriage to John Basford. It is on my list of things to do. I got my information from my wife. John was her grandfather. I eliminated my site for Laura and added her headstone picture to your site since you had the correct info on her death.I am currently working on my Basford file and might need info in the future.
Thanks,
Steve Lukens

RE: Julius Martas #122197257
your welcome. since he was buried in a Tiered section, they are unable to know if a stone is/was ever there or not . their records on Tiers do not provide information, so if a stone isnt visible, there isnt one there.

sorry to relay that to you but that is what the director there told me.

RE: Barbara & William Wisman
I am sorry I didn't see the request for Sarah Padgett. I had just stopped to see if I could find a round a bout relative after West Cedar, when I noticed the Wismans. The only thing that was wrong was his bd of 1869 instead of the 70 and her name Lizzie, instead of Barbara. So I took the pictures. Of course I had just notes and not my computer. When I got back to Speed, KS. about 30min away, I noticed the request but didn't have time to go back. I left Tuesday for home. I might be going back next year, if I do I will try to see if I can find her, so keep the request open. When I go back to Kansas I try to look for request in the cemeteries were I will be going within Phillipsburg, area and try full fill them. I got quite a few done this year. I am having trouble with my Roberts family past Conn. can prove to a Joel Roberts and Esther Loomis but after that gets very muddy with the in's and outs of the numerous Samuel's and the different wives and the many controveries. Who was married to who and who was not - Blake, Webb, (?)Hoyt, Butler(big?), Hall, Scofield, Weed. A real mess. I put all that on hold as get a real big headache from all of it. Would like to make it back to Litchfield Co. Conn. one of these days to see what I could find, but I know a lot more experienced researchers than I am can't seem to agree. LOL. Well better go for now. Will try to get the pictures downloaded in the next day or two. Most likely this coming weekend. I take care of my grandkids during the week.

Barbara & William Wisman
We walked all over the West Cedar Cemetery, outside of Agra and could not find any Wiseman. However had to go to Agra and stopped by the cemetery there. It is in the town of Agra and there is a William and Lizzie Wiseman right off one of the access roads. If these are the right person, and you remove them from the West Cedar Cemetery and add them to the Agra Cemetery, I will be glad to add the pictures. Let me know what you would like me to do. The dashes are to show the separate lines except the dates. Below are the transcriptions on the stones -
WISMAN - FATHER - WILLIAM - 1869-1945 - MOTHER - LIZZIE - 1876-1937. There are two other little stones to the right side of the big memorial. They are a little hard to read but it looks like the 1st says VERA ?O - DAU OF - W.H. & L. WISMAN - 1896-1902. The other MAY - DAU OF - W.H. & LIZZIE WISMAN - BORN JULY 19, 189?(6/5) - AGED 12 HOURS - "A little bud of love to bloom in heaven above".

No problem. And I sure hope it isn't a problem that I did that. I am not sure either, but that is why I captioned it with the note to be clear that it was not a picture I had taken. If it is, I will just drive out and take another. :-) Let me know if there are others I can help with.

Have a great week!

Ruth. if you would call the cemetery (631 351 8201) and get the plot and section of the cemetery. I would be willing to go take a photo for you. I don't think they have a map but if they tell you something like south west area or something like that I'd be willing to look for it. it's not a very big cememtery. Actually I just called about a friend of mine and the gentleman gave me the section and plot number over the phone and said if I call him on my cell phone when I'm at the cememtery he would tell me what direction to walk. LOL a map would be very helpful but I guess being a small cemetery there is not even an office on the premises.

RE: Clarence Johnson 119841582
Hi Ruth,

I've just now added a biography for Cousin Clarence. Later on I might work on it again, but for now I think it is nice.

I knew Cousin Clarence. I was very young (born in 1935), though, but I had met him. Sadly, Mollie passed away a year after I was born, and so I didn't know her.
Cousin Clarence was always highly spoken of, and a valued family member.

As to Mollie, I do have some census records about her, yet not much more, as I haven't worked on her line.

I recall mention of Dewey, son of Mollie and her first husband.

I hope the above is of help to you.
Please feel free to contact me at my direct email address:
CJameison@cesmaikl.net

Hi Ruth,

*Thank you* for telling me about Clarence Clifton Johnson's being linked to the wrong person!

He and his dear wife are indeed buried next to each other in Good Shepherd Cemetery in Huntington Beach, and this is what I have in my database.

I have unlinked the other person in Clarence's Find A Grave memorial.

Clarence is my cousin, a son of my great-aunt Mary Etta Ham Johnson Housington.
His memorial has kindly been transferred to me, and I plan to add a nice biography for him.

Again, thank you very much! :-)
