Jessie Randall Scott
There is a duplicate memorial for Jessie Randall Scott Find A Grave Memorial# 110056000 that was added in the wrong cemetery but has many correct people. Could they be merged? Her husband, son brother and sister are buried in Acacia near Jessie.

Russ I moved a copy of your stone photo over to William's wife's memorial ( # 172134207). I have lots of photos of this stone , but yours is the clearest and best looking. If you click on the photo on Alice's memorial, you'lll see your name is attached to it. If you object, let me know please.
There is a space on the stone for her name, but it was never engraved.

Thank you so much for making the changes on my families memorials. Unfortunately it is too late to change that obituary of my sister's but maybe seeing that the other memorials do not have the name John listed will see that it should not be there. People on Ancestry keep listing it and that is what upsets me. Thanks for your help.

HI Russ,

I submitted edits to you for Arthur F Frisell. I got a copy of his death certificate from It said his date of birth is 7/25/25 which conflicts with the headstone. I hope you will accept the changes. I can scan a copy of the death certificate to you if you would like. Thanks! Jon Strupp

Would you please remove the John from Frank Manthe's name. His name was Frank Manthe and he never had a middle name. The only place the John appeared was in the obituary of my sister LuEtta Manthe Wapp. It is listed that way on her birth certificate and my nieces said the funeral home wrote up the obituary that way. My dad's obituary or his WWI draft card list his name as Frank Manthe and that is the way he always signed his name. My parents always told me that him and his brother Archie never had a middle name. If you find it listed anywhere else please let me know.

Thank You
Good morning. Thank you for the memorials of my grandmother and great grandmother. That was very kind of you. Most of my memorials are created because I came across them while looking for others.How did you happen to create the memorials? Just wondering. Have a wonderful day.
Thanks again.

Hi. Are you related to Zbylut, Sobon or Bogacz families? I was wondering if you would please let me have these two memorials.
Find A Grave Memorial# 122609477
This is my great grandmother Tekla / Tillie (Busia). Her daughter, Rose, Find A Grave Memorial# 122609533 was my maternal grandmother.
I would really appreciate it. I would also like to thank you for creating the memorials. Each one is an act of kindness. Thank you very much.

Don't know if you knew Mary (nicknamed "Merks") in life. Great lady. She was struck by a car making a right-turn-on-red-after-stop while crossing a street near her home in Chicago IL. Sad. Her death really hit my uncle and the rest of our family.

Hope you are having a GREAT weekend!

Mary M. "Merks" Flos was one of my aunts. She and her husband Frank lived near us. I've got some details to add to her memorial.

Would you transfer management of her page to me? If not, let me know and I'll share them so you can make the updates.

Margaret (McKinnon) Manwell 157125162
Good morning Russ,

First, thank you for adding Margaret's memorial to the database!

Second, if you are not a relative would you please consider transferring management to me? She is my husband's paternal great-grandmother. I am currently working on this line for my husband and one of his only 2 first cousins. I have quite a bit of new information for her.

If you are a relative....would love to compare notes!

Thanks in advance,

RE: Parent of John Clark
If you will send me your email address (my email address is in my profile here), I'll send you more information this evening.

Parent of John Clark
I communicated with you some months back regarding John Clark (Find A Grave memorial# 72055121). I've recently had a DNA match with a person who traces their tree back to Jacob Clark (Born 22 Jul 1815,
Kentucky, USA. Married Mary Turbeville 5 Jan 1836, Putnam County, Indiana. Married Elizabeth Humphrey 28 Nov 1842, Putnam County, Indiana. Died 25 Mar 1892 Greene County, Indiana.)

Given the DNA match, the dates, and the locations, I think Jacob may have been a brother of John. As a further point of interest, John named one of his sons Jacob. Thought you might be interested in this as a possible topic of research. Best wishes.

Much thanks! It's been a pleasure, Russ.
When our cousins from Minnesota come to town, our cemetery trecs turn into amazing adventures. Mount Olivet seems even bigger in a Kansas downpour, believe me!

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 157526140, Patrick E Burke
Thank you. A transfer is quite workable. I appreciate your cooperation. Once I move the files and information, we can remove the later dated memorial. I see what you mean regarding duplicate Burke memorials. I reviewed these, and we are not yet familiar with this line of the Burke Family.

Again, thank you very much. pamela

Dear Russ, Please excuse MY oversight! I apologize. My cousin just turned this memorial over to me because I have finally managed to unravel many years of very complicated history surrounding our cousin, Patrick Burke's life. The family requested I ask for the duplicate memorial (142091007) to be taken down. We certainly would appreciate it. As you can see, we are busily updating and enhancing the records for our Burke Family.

Much appreciated, pamela

Dear Russ,

I'm sure this was simply an oversight, but the Find A Grave memorial # 142091007 for our cousin, Patrick E Burke, is a duplicate and needs to be removed.

Thank you, pamela
