RE: Gen Charles E Compton # 69171929
Thank you.

A Billy the Kid connection! Wow.

Gen Charles E Compton # 69171929

You've left several flowers for General Compton. Would you have any interest in me transferring his memorial to you? If not, that's fine. I'm thinking it is time for me to divest myself of some of these memorials.

Second question: His obituary has Elmer as his middle name in one place and Emery in another place. Do you know what his middle name really was? I know if you asked me that question, I'd have to hunt for where I got the answer. Only answer if you think you have the information and can get your hands on it easily.

Could this possibly be the same person as Jobez Alen (#123392272)? The plot location is the exact same one.

If the locations are different than what you have, I've been adding that info to the attached picture. From now on I'll start sending them to you so you can add info. I will have quite a few and it may be easier to just email them to you since I am still learning how to use this site. :) I deleted the picture of Harrington's headstone but will retake it to add to Tracy's page.

I have found where Jennie and Cora are buried and linked the parents to them. Hope this helps you find what happened to them.

Could this possibly be William Howard Andrews? This person, a Civil War veteran, died on June 21, 1880 in Washington D.C.

RE: Yonan
thank you so much for your help. I took the pictures from my phone and couldn't get it to align correctly. I had no idea there was a app!!! I just joined today so I can help with photos. Thanks again!!

The original creator of the memorials has already created links to family, there is no need to duplicate.

I added the death record, which indicates date on the stone was a general date, and the date shown on the memorial is the correct date.

Great minds think alike! I also went searching for an obit. The Cemetery card is wrong. Many thanks for your diligence! ~Carol Yocom

Hi SLGMSD! I sure hope no one buries me 4 months before I die. Since it was a cremation, I thought that the earlier date would be the death date, and the later date when the ashes were interred despite what the card says, but I will change it for you. Perhaps I can drum up an obituary to help clarify the dates. Best regards, Carol

Bradley family
You are amazing!! Where did you find it?

Bradley family
Hi SLGMSD. I have been working on the family of Andrew Coyle Bradley, and am not having any luck at all finding an exact date of death for his oldest son, Andrew Young Bradley. Rock Creek records give a burial date of 2 Feb 1928, but I haven't found an obit for him in the Washington Post archives, nor is there any mention of him in his mother Sue's obituary some years later. You have a lot of expertise in this, so if you have any information, or are able to succeed where I have failed, please add the info to the memorial. Many thanks!

Yeah, when my glasses aren't enough I have to use my fingers! Kinda hard to do that on a photo though. :)

RE: Antoinette F. Langley
Could be. It's really hard to read. Looks like 1881 to me but I suppose the "1" could be a "4".

I'll upload it and if you disagree, let me know and I'll take it down.

RE: Antoinette F. Langley

I uploaded the Johnston/Windsor photos:

Was baby (I am assuming) Ellen not included in the Plat book? She was listed with Willie, Paul and Florena.

with dates

Let me know if you want me to upload the last pic for her memorial or if you don't have enough info to do one.

Would you like me to upload this photo as well?

I also got photos of the following stones in the same plot if you had any interest in creating memorial pages for them:

Catherine Windsor
(stone is mostly underground, had to clear the grass to see the name)
Elizabeth Windsor
(stone is mostly underground, had to clear the grass to see the name)
Our Mother and Sister
Ellen Johnston

Thank you for your kind enclosed Link and clue to her burial location. Two $.30 calls later with 2 helpful ladies and I had found and confirmed not only her burial location, but that of her husband and parents too. F-A-G grew by 3 and all are linked together.

Thanks for all your Find A Grave efforts.

Always, in Find A Grave brother/sisterhood,

John Lewis Madden
Did you happen to know of John Lewis Madden born June 24, 1891 died May 1, 1949 from a pistol wound or have any pictures or anything of his family.

I saw you left flowers in the comment box on his memorial on find a grave.
