RE: David Hafer
You are mistaken - is not against Findagrave guidelines to transfer a memorial if it is a reasonable request.

I don't understand why you won't transfer my great-great grandfather's memorial to me. It may not be required, but it would make more sense than you holding on to it, since you are not related to him at all.

Me again
Looking back - This Cemetary is all one location in New Haven. But there are different sections within the Cemetary. Beth Israel Orchard St. Shul is one of the sections. It looks like there are other "Cemetaries or Sections" set up for this same location. I am going to add the Map location and call it a night.

Sorry to bug you!

Please shift them over to Beth Israel Cemetery in New Haven/New Haven County/Connecticut. Then the Beth Israel/Orchard St.. Shul Cemetery to be deleted.

I wanted to thank you so much for photographing Stephen & Agnes Pangborn's stone and for sharing your information with us. I know how much hard work goes into family tree research.

I noticed a discrepancy in dates and added the following note to these Find a Grave pages: & .

The linked child, Margaret Pangborn Church (1778 – 1860) Find A Grave Memorial# 37998855, can't be the child of Stephen and Agnes Pangborn.

Stephen Pangborn (____ - 1882) - Find A Grave Memorial# 13811871

Agnes Pegg Pangborn (1821 - 1907) - Find A Grave Memorial# 13811873

Per Stephen's stone, he was born July 28, 1808, and Agnes was born in 1821. They could not have given birth to a daughter, Margaret, in 1778.

RE: David Hafer
Just curious to know why you refuse to transfer the memorial for my father's great-grandfather to my care. Are you related?

Your Message follows:
"If you would like to have a memorial moved to another cemetery, please submit the request in the appropriate manner, along with a link to the cemetery to which you wish the memorial moved, and reliable documentation, such as an obituary, which indicates the 'correct' cemetery.
As to the transfer of management of the memorial, that would be outside of F.A.G. guidelines."

Dear sir,

I don't believe it's outside of guidelines for you to transfer my relative's memorial to me.

Also, I am unfamiliar with the "appropriate" manner you refer to for correcting your error in the location of his grave. Can you be more specific, please?

Thank you for your consideration.

Photo of John Grandin

I'm writing to let you know that the photo you have posted of John Grandin (1792 - 1884) is actually that of his son, John F. Grandin, MD.

John Grandin (1792 - 1884) was a farmer. It's his son that was the doctor. (note, actually the father of John Grandin, John Forman Grandin (1760 - 1811) was also a doctor.

Kind regards,

John Brake

The Rules State also that Newspapers 1922 and Earlier are in the Public Domain and its perfectly fine to add them, as long as you site the paper and date, which I always do.

Thanks for the Lesson, But I know how to read.

RE: Walter Champlin
The reason I asked to know what you were talking about has to do with the way messages come from Find-A-Grave. Unlike responding to a regular email where you can see an entire series of back and forth emails, all I received from you was a question with no specific subject or reference to anything that I'd said previously - so I really had absolutely no idea what you were talking about.

So now I know that it has to do with the duplicate memorials for Walter Champlin.

My intention was only to be helpful and to point out a possible duplication. I wasn't in the cemetery myself so I cannot say with absolute certainty that there was a duplicate on line memorial, or if there were in fact two almost identical stones for different Walter Champlin's. I've done enough Champlin genealogy to know that the latter is certainly possible.

Hi, Curious as to why you have one of my Randolph family markers pictured on the above memorial of mine. No relationship to each other to my knowledge. Kindly remove the picture from the above memorial.

RE: David Hafer
David Hafer, my 3x great-grandfather is buried in the Lutheran church cemetery in St. Thomas PA. Not in the town cemetery, as you have it. I was there in person, saw the stone, photographed it, etc.

I would like to have management of this memorial. Thank you for your consideration.

Walter Champlin
Dear TomKat:

You have created two memorials for Walter Champlin who is buried in the Brook Avenue Presbyterian Church Cemetery at Plainfield, New Jersey - one for a Walter K. Champlin and the other for a Walter N. Champlin.

These two gravestones belong to the same person. The original stone calls him Walter N. Champlin and the more recent stone, which also contains the names of his wife, a daughter, a son and a daughter-in-law, calls him Walter K. Champlin
His real name was Walter King Champlin, son of Nathan Champlin and Lydia Woodward. He was born at Norwich, Connecticut on March 29, 1813 so the inscription on the older grave that says Walter N. died in his 43rd year is correct, as to his age.

Interestingly, Walter's name appears on a third gravestone in the Oak Street Cemetery in Norwich which I found on May 6, 1998.

Howard Hoagland and Catherine Y. Hixon Hoagland.
First, Thank you for all the great work you have done for this sight. I am a Hixson -Hixon family researcher. Just a note to let anyone know that the persons noted in these two memorials are featured in a Dajuerreotype photo and case on ebay at this moment. (99.00). I am on a fixed income and cannot afford such a cost, but someone out there researching this family probably can.
(item listed under 'Hixson'). Once again, Thank you for your work.
