Great to hear from you re: Geyer
Thank you very much for the additional info on Mary Geyer, as well as for the clean-up you did on my dark photo of the graves of her and her husband. May I ask how on earth you found their marriage and her maiden name? I had really struggled with this and am so pleased you nailed it.

I see you added some things for Fannie Baronofsky. I have been looking forever for this info. Where did you find it?

Thanks so much for the info about Mr. Weaver. I did add it to his memorial. I apologize for taking so long to do so. If you are related to him and wish his memorial transfered to you, please let me know.

RE: Denise Blackington
You're most welcome! Happy to do it! She was such a young woman and apparently very loved by her family. "Anonymous" left a very loving tribute to her. I'm sure she is missed very much.

Thank you! I appreciate your efforts and information for this memorial!

RE: Francis DeGress
Thanks for the quick response. Three brothers immigrated from Köln, Germany: William, Francis, and Jacob. William's memorial (20366608) has a biography (he worked for his brother's arms company in Chile and Mexico City) and links to his brothers and his wife Elizabeth (her memorial also appears as "De Gress"). I did a search for "De Gress" and there are only THREE "De Gress" in all of Find-a-Grave: William's brother Francis and his wife Virginia in Mexico City, and an infant in San Antonio. I requested photos of the Mexico City graves so we can see how the name is spelled on the marker. For better or worse, Find-a-Grave wants the memorial to spell the surname as it appears on the marker. I will let you know when the grave photos are posted.

You've done a great job with the memorials:) Thanks for linking uncle William to his folks. I just have come across some pics of him (one of which I have uploaded to his memorial). Thanks for your work on Find a Grave!

Geraldine Cade
The info you sent on Geraldine Cade is consistent with my family history. She is buried in my family's plot in Skokie and was believed to be my grandfather's housekeeper. Thanks for the input. I have made an entry to update that Find A Grave memorial.

Sarah Elizabeth Isgrigg Birchfield
Hi Ash,

I am wondering where you were able to find the wonderful photo of my gg aunt,, Sarah Elizabeth Isgrigg and her husband that you have on her memorial? I was thrilled to see it, and she looks very much like her sisters. She was the only sibling we didn't have a photo of, so I thank you so much! Would love to know how you found it in case there may be others?
Thank you, Karyn

Central Islip Cemetery
I have accepted your suggested changes. I have photographed all the named markers (not numbered) in this cemetery and will be posting shortly. Did you want management of the graves transferred to you?

Billie Fay Dodson
I am trying to find findagrave info of all the 1948 graduating class of Tioga HS which was the year Billie graduated. From your info, I will correct the info on Billie. Do you know the cemetery name of Billie's husband Cecil Jack Wilson??

Thanks for your help.

Can you please tell me where you acquired your birth year correction. I added month and day, but refrained from year change.

Would like to have further contact if you have any substantial information. Some of the information on his death certificate was incorrect, which makes sense. Do you have any further real information, paper info, that I might have copies of?

Hi Ash....thank you so very much for the info on Wanda Wms and his wife Minnie. This 'cousin' has been such a mystery for so long and am thrilled that you have shared the info. Will also pass it along to the Ellis County Gen Society. They were a big help while he was in Ellis County, OK but needed to complete his service info for their files. If you are interested in Wanda's line, please contact me at Be glad to share. THANK SO MUCH AGAIN! Judy

I am related to Eliza (Norton) Bottomley and her daughter Florence Grace Bottomley. Do you know if Florence had any children? She was married twice, but I can't find any descendants, can't access South African records anyway.

Re: Samuel Reed Cummings
Your explanation of the discrepancy between his estimated birth date (1805) from his death certificate and the date on his grave stone makes sense to me. Thanks. Thanks also for clarifying the
assertion that he spent 8 years in Cook County. These are the "mystery" years that I need to explore further. One last thing, I found it strange that his age is listed on his death certificate in years/months/days. Can you explain to me the possible source of such a listing ? Would it be from a family member ? Who would figure that out and list it that way ?

Samuel Reed Cummings
Thank you for adding the picture of his gravestone and one of his planes. But it should be pointed out that the date on his gravestone (1809) does not match the information you provided from his Cook County death certificate (1805 birth). But more important to me is your statement that he "lived in Illinois 8 years." Is this 8 year reference also from his Cook County death certificate? Regards, Rick Slaney, Pawtucket, RI.

Re: Samuel Reed Cummings
Hello Ash Montagu,
I am thrilled to have discovered your Grave Memorial site for
Samuel Reed Cummings (#86200433). My question is about the source of the excellent information you provide. Does the information come from an obituary in an early Illinois newspaper? If it does, can you give me a link to the obituary? For the past few years, I have been researching the life of Samuel Reed Cummings as part of my hobby of studying early toolmaking in America. I know quite a bit about him when he lived in RI and MA, but very little about him after he left MA c 1847. I am willing to share any information I have on Cummings. Thanks again, Rick Slaney.

RE: Memory Gardens
The Find A Grave area that I work is in the Texas Panhandle and not in the Chicago area. Although many cemeteries may have the name "Memory" in it, ours in near Pampa, Texas. I apologize for any confusion on my part. I would love to assist with any further questions that still exist. Thank you.

Thanks for the death certificate information on Lula Goyer. For whatever reason, I'm coming up empty on finding information on her.
