Mattie Scull Sheffield

I recently put up a picture for Mattie Scull Sheffield, #13059568. You left some flowers saying she was your great aunt. Her husband, Norman Noel Sheffield, was my great uncle. Would you happen to have a picture of Noel & Mattie?

The Dark Poet
Oak Grove Cemetery

I was doing some memorial work the last 2 days out at Oak Grove Cemetery (Bristol, IL). You have a Nicholas Babbitt #14279658 as being buried in Oak Grove. I thought this was correct until I went out today for some more photos and realized that the cemetery is actually 2 different cemeteries. Nicholas Babbitt is actually buried in St. Patrick's cemetery, and has a memorial. I saw a huge row of trees that seem to divide these 2 cemeteries. I will go through my work from yesterday and see if I too added some people to the wrong cemetery. Thanks. I would have never know if I didn't go back today to double check some things, and I saw the other cemetery sign...

John McKown & Nancy Jones McKown
Eight years ago you left a virtual flower on the memorial for William S. McKown (F.A.G. memorial 7563809) identifying him as your g-g-grandfather. I'm a distant cousin. Today I spent some time trying to get children of William and Adella/Della/Dollie linked to them. Do you have any clues as to where William's parents (John McKown and Nancy Jones McKown) are buried? That's been a mystery to me. Thanks. - Jay

Trasfer Mary & David Elmore
Greetings DHM:

If Mary Amanda Elmore (14944406) and David William Elmore (14944408) are not relatives, might you consider transferring them to a family member such as Kara Seager (46775702), who previously wrote a bio for each of these people, or myself (47476931), David's 3rd great grandson?

Thank you.

Robert S. Elmore

I wondered if you would link Stephen R. Ellithorpe #15605194 to his son, William Henry Ellithorpe #15605212. Also would you link Stephen Ellithorpe's daughter to him. Her Find A Grave number is 38391461 - Antionette Ashcraft.

Thank you so much for your Find A Grave work.

Bobby Jones
I was surprised but the person you transferred Bobby to was able to transfer him to me. Find A Grave use to have a rule that a memorial could only be transferred once - so they must have changed their rules.

Thank you again for the transfer - Valerie

Elizabeth Fox
Sarah Fox is my great great great grandmother and i was wondering if she is any relations to Elizabeth, Because an Elizabeth Fox Date of Birth 1814 showed up on Sarah's 1880 United States Federal Census, Sarah Fox was married to Hamilton Luster, and they had a son named Asa Carter Luster and Asa was married to Josephine Silvada Simpson. If any of this names sound familiar please let me know. Thank you for your time.

William S. McKown
I notice you left a 'virtual flower' on memorial #7563809 "In memory of my great great grandfather." You have probably noticed that the photo of the tombstone on that memorial is really a photo of the tombstone of William's brother, Capt Samuel McKown. My real interest is in their father, John McKown (born abt 1828-1829) (your great-great-great-grandfather). John was still living in Rantoul Twp in 1870. Do you know when and where John died and is buried? If William's own grave is unmarked, perhaps John is in the same cemetery and also in an unmarked grave. Any light you can cast on this mystery would be much appreciated. -- Jay

photo of Kurt Buschbacher's Grave
Please remove the photo of Kurt's headstone with the names of his children, who are still minors. It is an invasion of their privacy at such a young age to have a photo of their father's headstone easily available on the Internet and as their mother and Kurt's widow, I respectfully request that you take the photo down. Many thanks

Restland Cemetery
You added two photo's for Restland Cemetery in Mendota, LaSalle, Il. One is of the Civil War Statue that is there, the other is the open Bible that is a different cemetery, not Restland. There are in all 3 total cemeteries there. Please be so kind as to remove that one.

America Gates & Caroline Gates
Please add the following to the Gates memorials:
Cemetery does not have info on America.
Caroline Gates March 20 1812 Nov 26 1893--Note 1893--Check picture- you can click on it to make it bigger. I think it is 1893 because we should have gotten this date from Ill death records.
Burial: 29 November 1893--Age: 81y 8m 6d--Cause of death: Pneumonia-- We will check stone for lot numbers when we can and I will get back to you on that.

Upgrade for Seneca Breese
We are putting in info on all the people in West Aurora Cemetery. You have this one pretty complete according to our records. Will you please add the Plot--Section 3- Block 5- Lot 71 or lot 84. I cannot list a grave number at this time, therefore I am listing both lots listed to Breese families. Thank You! Elaine Lindoo

Thank you so much for the transfer of management for the Copley Family. As you will notice from the additions I have made, the family has a major history and impact. The Copley's settled in San Diego and have become a huge part of our city's history.
