RE: Oren Fallon
Wow! Thank you! The Greybeard Regiment? How interesting! I loved hearing from you about some of the history of the Regiment! I am hoping to look up some information this weekend, and now am so excited to find out more!
I wonder if Oren's father William felt like he had to enlist since his son was ill. Do you know if that was a common thing then, for him to enlist if his son couldn't continue on for him?

We are so blessed to have information on him, and a lengthy letter to his sister. There would have been no way to ever know he was going to take ill like he died and pass away after writing that letter...

Thanks again! And I thank you for your generosity and contributions in making memorials!

Fallon in Jefferson Barracks
Hi KL-
I keep receiving a duplicate notice from a person I can't even reach, on my Oren Smith Fallon. My entry is #79886920. Yours in a year older #54831501, but at the time of your memorial it was unknown location. We have family notes as my relative in Jackson Barracks, so not sure what to do about the duplicate. We have had all of our family information on my memorial.

Any ideas? We can merge the information somehow- or we can leave them, since the spellings are different.

Are you a relative of Oren? I am looking for new family members!

I don't mind a duplicate entry when the spelling is different- because if we delete yours, someone else will come along and create another memorial with the alternate spelling anyway. So we can leave yours but I would like your thoughts on this.

Thanks so much-
Edmonds, WA

Hi - I came across a duplicate that you had transferred to me and see that you also maintain a copy (a duplicate) of the memorial page. I can delete the memorial page that you transferred to me so there is only one memorial page.

Charles E. Miller's wife
My great, great grandfather was Charles E. Miller who is buried in Sigourney, Iowa. I noticed that you have listed his wife as Elizabeth L. Miller Hankins. I have her name as Elizabeth L. Van Wormer Miller. After Charles E. died, did she remarry and if so where is she buried? Thank you for your help in solving this family mystery.

Would you consider deleting this memorial, changing Clara's last name to Etten, and linking Frederick Etten to memorial #20426784? I've submitted the obit and links for all of her children to the memorial created first. Thank you for your great work on Find A Grave.

America Ackley
Could you delete her birth date in the bio? It's already listed.
Could you delete her death info in the bio section? I have requested that Davenport, Scott, IA be added to the death info above.
It should read with the last line, cause of death, age, etc. in the bio area.
No sense in repeating.

RE: Donahues
I would appreciate the transfers of my other Donahue family, thank you. Regarding your virtual cemeteries; are you wanting links to all soldiers, or only the ones that died in the war?

Thank you!!

RE: Memorials Alton National Cemetery
If you will get me a list of names, I will be glad to transfer them to you. But it will take me a little while, as I have a memorial service for my father, and a graveside service for my grandmother to attend next week.

Memorial Transfer

My name is Rachel Waugh and I would like to request transfer of William and Elender Payn(e)'s memorials to me. I am their five times great grandaughter and am creating a family tree on this site.

Thank you!

Elsie Boarts Koser
Hello, thanks for the note. In Lorenzo's obituary, Elsie is listed as an adopted daughter. I have read
where Josephus M. Johnson, who was a neighbor of the Crippen's, was probably the Josephus Johnson
who is listed as the father on the birth certificate. But there was also another older Josephus Johnson
who many believed was the father. Either way, if all the dates are right, the mother, Mary, was only
13 at the time of birth of Elsie, which seems to us to have required some kind of legal action of
some kind for underage pregnancy.

I have done some looking for this Josephus Johnson, but have not found much. Do you have information
on him? Are there other sources verifying he is the father?

I tried sending an email but it did not go through.

martin bromley
His mother, Charity, died 1/14/1843 and her mother, Deborah, died two days later 1/16/1843.
Martin's step mother was Sabra Hewitt who had seven chrildren with Moses Bromley. I do not see a listing for him in Find a Grave but his
family line going back in America would have been;
Edward, Barton, Bethuel, William, William, Luke

This info is from the copy of for the Bromley's that is posted onlin (Which isn't always right)

I loved reading what your goal is with Find A Grave. I hope to add a little something as well.

I sent this info because I thought you might find it interesting.
Thank You

Dear K L,
Thank you so much for your suggested bio for the memorial of my husband's 2nd great grandfather Eli Withrow. We are in possession of a copy of Eli's Civil War records from the National Archives, but I never thought to include this information at FindAGrave. You made it very easy to add, too, so I thank you for that as well!

RE: Lysander Woodward
I don't think they are the same person.

The following docs that would appear to disqualify our Lysander Woodward as this soldier from IA. The first item documents pension activity from 1899 (a request by the veteran for a copy of his records), by which time our Lysander Woodward had already been dead for nearly 20 years. Note the surname is spelled Woodard on this document.

The second is the IA soldier's index card, again spelling the surname Woodard, but also noting that his original record is filed under Woodard, Sylvester.

Also, since Civil War service was a distinct badge of honor, had our Lysander Woodward been a veteran of that war I believe it would have been included in his resume when he ran for lieutenant governor of Michigan in 1878. There was never any mention of military service included in any description of our Lysander Woodward that I have seen.

The name Lysander Woodward apparently is not as uncommon as one might think. There are a least three born in the same decade; ours, another in New Hampshire, and this one in Iowa.

RE: Francis Playel
Thank you for getting back to me.

I was reading the "U.S., Adjutant General Military Records, 1631-1976" and it lists the name, and injury of several men.

Francis' was of his knee, and it said "Severely" Perhaps that's what the SV stands for.

Very sad.
