Wow! Thanks for pointing out the duplicate! I've requested edit to move the original to the correct cemetery since the creator is no longer active. Again, thank you!

William Henry Haslauer
I am a historian, and I have a photo of the memorial to William Henry Haslauer, who is buried in Mound City National Cemetery, and you maintain his site.
If you would like me to include it on his page I will.
Since the memorial is on the lawn of the Cairo Public Library, and not in the cemetery, I was reluctant to just add it.
email me at if you approve the addition. If I do not hear from you I will assume that is a denial.

We Are the Chosen
Rhonda.....I just came across your bio sheet on Find A Grave because you created a memorial for an ancestral relative of mine, Phillip Hargan in the Patterson Chapel cemetery on Fort Knox. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your poem about family history research and also the explanation on being "the chosen ones to be the story teller of our tribe." I am writing an article for a newsletter telling the story of my search for my Fort Knox Family and would like to end it using that paragraph. Should I attribute them to you or someone else? Thanks.

Vincent Esposito
There is no record of Vincent at Green Hills that meets the date of birth or death. His estimated date of death precedes the establishment date of the cemetery. It sounds like he may have been lost at sea. If you have further information please let me know.

Thanks for the update of info!

Memorial for Florence Simpson.
You requested that I "See memorial 46171233 in nearby cemetery. Husband and many of his family listed in that cemetery."

This is true.

Originally Two Lakes Cemetery in Phillips was not listed separately from Lakeside. Two Lakes is part of the Lakeside Cemetery Association that includes Lakeside 1, Lakeside 2 and Two Lakes Cemeteries. Both Lakeside 1 and Lakeside 2 are together on Find-A-Grave. Before someone added Two Lakes Cemetery, those graves were listed in Lakeside. When obituaries are in the newspaper they don't usually say which cemetery it is, just Lakeside is mentioned. Very confusing and I don't know how to straighten all this out.

Carl Sheperd
Child of Moses & Susan Crabtree
I photographed a stone for a son of Moses & Susan Crabtree at Brushy Fork Cemetery in Daviess County, KY. Although I can't really make out the name of the child, he was born Sept 1870 and died Dec 13, 1870, if I read the stone correctly. The only child of theirs that I can find that even comes close to this date would be son William L., who apparently did die as a child. If you would like a copy of this stone, email me at:

Susan Francis Bott and Bruce E Bott

Found a couple of Wathens in Evergreen (Louisville) today. They don't have memorials on them, but I have pictures if you want to make some. I found when searching for Mary Malvina Troutman Daugherty's daughter, Mary Daugherty Beeler. I have made HER one. Found her kids, but have to call back about her daughter, because it has no death year engraved. It feels like someone is buried there, though.
Anyway, the Wathens are: Joseph E Wathen 1907-1989, Lucy S Wathen 1883- (no death date) and Mary E Wilson 1849-1945.

I will gladly post the pictures if you want to make the memorials.

duplicate Beam Cemetery
I did as you requested and deleted all my entries of the duplicate Beam Cemetery. Please note that the location of the Beam Cemetery added before mine is not correct. It is not located in Bardstown. It is located on the farm of Charles F. Hayden whose address is 900 Thomas Lane, Bloomfield, KY 40004. I will have to leave it to you, to figure out how to merge the 2nd and now empty cemetery with the first as findagrave does not allow for deletion of any cemetery as far as I can tell. Hope you will not mind taking care of this for me, because I read the process and still did not understand beans about how to do it. Also some of the information dates, etc is not correct in the posts of the first cemetery, but you can glean those corrections from the pictures which I posted to the first cemetery memorials at your request.

Hi Rhonda.
Before you change the cemetery on your memorials, check before editing the cemetery name. Some are already on the Troutman Family Cemetery list. Also, I noted that others have added memorials to your Troutman Historical Cemetery. This means that to merge the two listings all others that you did not add should be contacted and ask them to change the cemetery name in their memorial. I read both obituaries and saw the name of the cemetery as Troutman Historical Cemetery and understand the mixup.

Troutman Historical Cemetery
Hi Rhonda.
The Find a Grave Troutman Family Cemetery and the one you have as Troutman Historical Cemetery are the same as far as I can tell. I have been to the Troutman Historical Cemetery and it is still in use. The family has turned the little church into their Historical Society. If no one has added a photo of it, I will.

You might want to use the Find a Grave forum to ask for a change in the name or at least adding "aka Troutman Historical Cemetery." I have had some success with correcting duplicate cemeteries' names, especially when one is no longer with its original church affiliation. Troutman Family Cemetery is the way this cemetery is listed in the Iredell County Cemeteries series.

My suggestion is that you change the cemetery name on your memorials and then see if you can get the two cemetery names merged by Find a Grave. Instructions are in the FAQ section. Let me know when you have this and I'll go out to the cemetery and take your photos for you.

Rhonda: I wanted to leave a public message of Thanks for all of your hard work in helping me with the Moore Cemetery in Manton, KY. My Moore relatives will all be grateful as well. The history you provided and the stone photos are such a wonderful addition. Thanks again for such a thorough job. I wish that my mother and grandmother could have seen this site. It would have astounded and delighted them.
Thanks again. Martha Messer Barker

You may attach the photo of the announcement of his death to his memorial. That is fine as long as the copyright is expired.

Debra H
Mound City National Cemetery
Could you tell me if you have added memorials here for Mound City from some sort of burial list? I am searching for the grave of Union soldier James Bruce who died at Depot hospital Cairo IL Jan. 6, 1862, taken from "Registers of Deaths of Volunteers". He is not listed on F/G. Just wondering if all available records for burials in this cemetery have been added.
Thank you!

Hubert Cochran
I am Hubert Cochran's grandaughter. My mother was his daughter, Rose Marie Cochran (1928-2013) I would love to visit and pay my respects to my Grandpapa (who I never got a chance to meet) before I move back to Idaho in May. Did you take the photo and if so, can you give me some specifics on how to find his marker and his sons, Gordon Joel and Joel Gordon, if they are also there at Union Band Cemetery, which I believe they are. I will be driving up there in a couple weeks and would so appreciate any help you or anyone else could provide. I'm afraid that I will get there and be lost, not knowing where anything is. I will be traveling alone. It means the world to me. Thank you! Beverly

U.S. Register of Deaths of Volunteers:
Obadiah Scott, died 14.2.1863 at Paducah General Hospital, served in 22nd KY Infantry, Co G

US Civil War Pension Index:
Obadiah Scott, G 22nd Infantry, mother Elizabeth Coley pensioned

Family search - (unable to see records, just index)
Kentucky Civil War Service Records of Union Soldiers, 1861-1865, Obadiah Scott, 22nd Infantry, shows age as 21

1860 Census of Carter KY shows household of Thomas Coley contains older wife Elizabeth Coley with son Obadiah Coley. Born ca 1842.

Thanks for all your work with findagrave. It's a great reference,and a work of love.

I was curious about the date and place of birth listed for Obadiah Scott. Is that part of the official record? Or did someone add that later?

That is actually the birth date, per family bible, of a Jesse Scott, son of Jesse and Fanny (Wood) Scott. Their son Obadiah Scott was born 05 June 1795, and last documented in 1850 Census, Dade County, Missouri.

Thanks, Nancy
