I am so sorry, I forgot my password. Yes, please transfer the memorial to me and I will make many additions to give Hermann the memory he deserves.

Hi, Eileen -
Findagrave guidelines indicate spelling names as displayed on headstones. Variants can be described in bio or in "Notes" field. Please check grave photo to see that the apostrophe is between the "D" and "A," even though some records do not reflect the apostrophe.

Hi Eileen,

I'm kind of stuck between a rock & a hard place. As a retired dealer in historical newspapers I've got some 30-40,000 newspapers before 1924 left, which means I've got over 100,000 death notices available for Find A Grave. I'm 76 years old, and can add perhaps 2,000 items to Find A Grave a year. So the odds are I won't even come close to finishing. And unfortunately I have no idea which items will be found by family members and which will never be seen by anyone. The only kind I leave out are lynchings and the first of its type I found yesterday, a poor fellow who was buried alive.

I confess to being a bit touchy since one lady wrote and thanked me over and over for the info in the newspaper item on her family I'd put up, and then asked me to take it off (which I did). My followup letter to her brought no response.

I'd love it if I could put items in the Bio section, but I can't without typing them out, which is well beyond my capability to do. So I can only ask you to do the typing if you want and then I'll remove the item.

I just added a newspaper death notice for this gentleman. I must disagree with you about newspaper obits. I think people would rather have the info rather than just a photo of the grave. Take a look at how much knowledge this obit gives compared to what was there without it.

However, it is your site, and I will remove it if you like.

Martha Elizabeth Rice Boyd 24661471
I work on documenting pioneer families' genealogies on Ancestry. What I found was that Martha's mother was Mandana Bradley, wife of David Barrow Rice. She is listed in the 1850 census with them, her sister Mary J. and her brother George L. in Schuyler, Missouri. If she is actually the daughter of Martha Floyd, perhaps this was David's first wife. Can you tell me how you found Martha Floyd as her mother? I want my information to be accurate also. I am an active participant on Find a Grave also.

I'm so happy to find this baby's memorial at Calvary as I hadn't been sure where he was buried. Thank you so much for all your work, Eileen. I just sent his birth information to you. I'd be interested in taking over management of his memorial if you'd be willing as I have other information to add. His mother was my great-aunt and I knew his parents in their later years. They are buried at Holy Cross in Colma.

Joey Arnold
Peter Marinus Rasp
Thanks for your information about my paternal grandpa, Peter Marinus Rasp, who gave birth to my father, Donald Melvin Rasp, who was later adopted into the Arnold family. Peter's father was probably named Peter as well. His father might have been Edwards.

I was born in Oregon, my dad in LA, California, and his dad in the Netherlands around 1906 or 1908. I think my grandpa was escaping famine. I do not know why they went to Canada and then to America.

Since my father was adopted, we do not know much about my dad's side of the family. However, I will continue to do more research.

I know . . . right?
She even transferred her original to the hateful woman. What more does she want? An apology for making the original 4 years before SHE thought of doing it? ha ha ha

Josway is the nicest person I've ever dealt with on here.

There are duplicate memorials for Elbert L. Hougland, Winnemucca, NV. One of them has a photo of the wrong person's plaque. I have the correct photo and will be posting it to the site with no photos. ~rp

RE: Harlyn's Headstone
You're very welcome.
You can't imagine the number of people who either cannot travel to see their relatives headstone, or some who have reached their 70's or 80's, and travel is out of the question to see where their relative are buried, and the comments of their loved ones and how peaceful it looks at their last place of rest.

After I complete someone's headstone photo, I delete them, otherwise my computer memory would be overloaded.

RE: Rebecca (Smith) Hardin
Thank you for your offer of a transfer, but I will decline.
This is a peripheral line for me and I am not related to either these Hardins or Smiths by blood. However, I do thank you for all the work you have done in researching and adding them to Find A Grave!
With much appreciation,

Abram Gillett
I'm not sure I figured out the right person to send this email to, but just in case. I've just discovered this site and there is a note on Abram Gillett's West Troy 1811-1879 that someone has him in their family.

I'm of a line of Gillett's from the area as well, and would love to compare notes. I am actually trying to figure out the Moriah Gillett that is buried in the Watervliet Shaker Society cemetary and her connection to the West Troy Gillett family (there surely must be one!)

Thank you for your time,

Thank you for so quickly accepting the addition of Rebecca Hardin's maiden name. If/When I find her parents, I will send a SAC to link them.
Your "labor of love" is very much appreciated!

Please transfer

George Falk
Thank you for the 93 transfers, I think.
I am looking at each one as I delete the memo so it will take me a while.

But yes, I would be happy to have you continue doing this. I have the time to respond to any questions, and am kind of thinking of loading up my golf cart when the weather gets better, and taking photos of ALL of Mont Meta. It is only about half photographed.

I also plan to do photos of several other cemeteries that both Art and I worked on in the past.

I noticed that they finally removed the remains of Art's house about a month ago.

Hi Eileen,

Amalia's record at Rio Vista looks much better, now.
The dup at Vacaville-Elmira has been deleted.
I will work with Diane at Vaca-Elmira to correct the cemetery record.

Thank You for following up,

RE: Edgar Sweetland
I fully understand. A problem we are having with Lone Mountain is hundreds of undocumented graves. Apparently the records were lost or destroyed years ago. The obits help to identify possible family members buried in a family plot with only the last name listed, no dates, nothing else. Currently I'm adding what I can find. I'm keeping the obits for right now for further research, and eventually as time permits they will be added in the bio section, if they are mine. Yes, fortunately your person was well documented, sadly that is not the case for hundreds of people. The county only has documentation for some 7,000 people. We have listed over 8,500 and I expect that number will greatly climb. Eventually I will start researching all the old newspapers, funeral homes, club records, church records, basically anything I can get my hands on to help locate and document these people. I hate going to the cemetery and walking by family plots over and over again with no record of who is buried there. Anyway, I always do what anyone asks of me as soon as possible. But please be patient with those of us working on Lone Mountain until we get this monster job done. I've been working on it for at least 2 years so far. Back then Find A Grave only had 3,500 people listed, at least now we have it up to 8,500 and many of us are working on it. It will take years more to finish this task, but it's a very rewarding task of love. And again, all a family member has to do is ask me to remove it, and it's done. Please feel free to help us with anyone else at Lone Mountain. Your work is outstanding.
