Hi Ruth,

I noticed you started this page for my father, Allen Odle. I was wondering how you knew him as I am trying to trace his life. I know he was married quite a few times, in fact I just found 2 marriage records with names I have never heard. That's not surprising though. I was only 10 when he died.

James Stockton
Hi Ruth,
I am just getting back to catching up on my research and had a message from you back in Dec. The message said a photo had been added for James Stockton, record #102887353, however, I am not seeing it. Maybe I waited too long or the owner of the record needs to respond to allow it?
Thanks for any help.

Hi Ruth,
I was wondering if perhaps James' wife Martha or her parents Henry and/or Ann Oman are buried by James. Thanx for the pic of James' marker and any other info you may be able to add.

RE: Hudson T. Armerding
Thank you very much for posting the additional photographs, personal and grave markers, for Dr. Hudson Taylor Armerding. I had seen the earlier memorial which at the time did not have any location of a cemetery. The contributor only recently changed the location. I had also seen your memorial for his wife with the grave marker picture, so I knew he must be in the Wheaton Cemetery. Also, thanks for posting the additional pictures of Miriam on her memorial.

Dear Ruth---We were so very, very happy to locate the Memorial, # 127920826, for my husband's Great-Great Grandfather, Reverend Milton Smith! We greatly appreciate all of the work you have done for genealogists everywhere! We had done a lot of searching to find him, and were also pleased to have been able to locate his wife of 40 years, and many of their children. We would like to link their family together. Would you consider transferring his memorial to us, so that we could add a biography and the links to all of his family? We would be ever so grateful! Lowell and Carol Thomas

Carl Teiwes
Hi Ruth,

Obviously you manage a lot of memorials. But since you posted three photos to Carl's memorial;

I thought you might have a personal interest in Carl.

So I wanted to let you know that I added another photo of Carl, and that the caption contains a link to his naturalization documents, in case you care to look at them.

Of course, feel free to change the order of the photos on the memorial.

I have no connection to Carl. I just find things online and pass them on :)

Emma I Glasshagel
Hi Ruth

I came across your entry for Emma I Glasshagel where you have added her maiden name. I am searching for an ancestor with a similar name and wonder what evidence you have for the maiden name. There are some discrepancies, and if cleared up this would really solve some problems for me. Can you contact me? While I am from Melrose Park, I live in Sweden now. I really look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Memorials
For the sake of the persons not aware:
When you click on a member's name and look under "Contributions to Find A Grave" Ruth you have at the moment "10,417 Memorials Added" and "10,276 Memorials Managed" and myself have "1,461 Memorials Managed" and "1,915 Memorials Managed". Since neither your "10,417 Memorials Added" or "10,276 Memorials Managed" is highlighted nobody can click on them and see which memorials you added or manage, however my "1,461 Memorials Added" and "1,915 Memorials Managed", it is highlighted and everybody in the world can see which memorials I added or managed. Hopefully, I expressed myself clearly now and you might be able to answer my original question.

Added by Jerry Stremcha on Oct 17, 2014 8:17 AM

I see that your memorials that you added or managed are not accessible. I am thinking that I should do the same. Did you make a special request to Find A Grave?

I came across your photo of the grave of Pvt James C Atkins (Evergreen Cemetery, Hanover, Jo Daviess County, Illinois, USA) and was wondering if you came across his wife Martha C. (Oman), or her parents Ann and Henry Oman. Ann died in Hanover in 1866, I do not know when Martha and Henry died. Thanx Claire
