Memorial 35746260 Edgar Ashmead
Edgar Ashmead has two memorials, your added in 2009 and then Memorial# 20497603 added in 2007, both have a picture of the same gravestone added by you. I would rather have two memorial then none. But if you can remove yours as it was added last it would be appreciated.
Thank you for the picture of our Uncle's gravestone.

Frenches in defunct Washington Street Cem- In Painesville
Marc- Thank you for getting them online! At least this one's inscriptions (most, not all??) were recorded first (you entered them later?), plus, it disappeared for a decent reason (new high school).

Just a head's up on two changes outlined below, basedon findings in the old "Painesville Telegraph", parts now online courtesy of Judy Stebbins, which covered well Painesville deaths over the 1820s-1850s, and his hit-an-miss on surrounding towns.

TWO Mary Frenches died in Painesville, a toddler and her grandmother. The defunct cemetery listing had just ONE, the toddler Mary E.

I discovered her most famous relative Oratus Seba French in the Stebbins excerpts few years ago. After studying him at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential library, up in Fremont, Ohio, I finally put the graves of him and his older sister at Findagrave this week.

Double checking O.S.'s obituary, which mentioned his sister, I went back to the excerpts The toddler, Mary Eliza, little sister to Oratus Seba, and their grandmother, a Mary who went by Molly, died within a decade of each other. Separate death notices covered two other blood relatives buried with toddler Mary, she and O.S.'s father and grandfather, Warren and Seba French, who matched other info. The only mistake was that Judy or the original Telegraph mis-typed Grandma Mary's age as 37, when a Census recently completed showed that aged Mary to be 87.)

I've thus made two changes based on the Stebbins data affecting the defunct Cemetery you've so kindly built:

FIRST CHANGE, added that "Mary E French" meant Mary Eliza, daughter of Warren French of Painesville, now known to have died at 20 months and 10 days, earlier than previously thought. (In contrast, Grandma Mary never used an initial. The pioneer nickname of "Molly" separated her whenever other Mary Frenches were around to confuse things, with Molly used on her sons' birth records, Warren's in VT and Daniel Ide French's earlier in RI.)

Second change, since Stebbins documented Grandma Mary's death, she was added to Findagrave this week. She is TEMPORARILY put at your defunct cemetery (Washington Street in Painesville), so you can tell me what you think. Warning- We might all feel her grave should stay there (must also ask a Kristi Baker, who has been working on this family), that we all wish to treat it as her known grave, not having seen her grave anywhere else despite considerable looking. If not, then Findagrave rules for an unknown cemetery currently require making this Mary "bodyless", so listed as "body lost or destroyed".

The big problem created for the bodyless whose addresses were known, but not the specific cemetery-- Anyone thereafter entering that known address among their search criteria, say, by selecting Ohio, or "Lake County", will DEFINITELY NOT see this Mary in the results. Through a programming glitch not yet fixed, Findagrave search will zap her out of the results, even though her death address says Lake county, Ohio. (FindaGrave turns into LostaGrave for the bodyless whose death addresses are known).


Just my "thoughts so far"--any reaction?

I'm flexible. These are just "thoughts for now" I'll wait a couple of days, then will try to remember to contact contact Kristi.

Dear Marc,
Please do not put pictures of my relatives on find a grave without my permission. You took dozens of pictures from my public Ancestry tree and put them all over other sites. You are not related to me and I don't know why you would do this.
Benzonia Cemetery has been photographed and indexed for a few years now and the pictures even have the lot and sec number. The index is in the Benzonia Library. You didn't even take pictures of the headstones, just the caretakers building. Please take my relatives pictures off of Find A Grave or I will report you to the website as using unauthorized material.

BOY DO I NEED HELP!!!!
I looking for the resting place of Russell Ernest Webber, whose daughter knows where the cemetery is ...just not its name!!

To quote her..."Northeast of town past the Catholic Church not the one that is just before you get into town on the on the south" in Frankfort (Benzie co) MI.

Please can you tell me the name of the cemetery based on that information?

I only saw 2-3 cemteries list as being IN Frankfort. I don't want to just guess, and there are no telephone numbers to call on any of the cemeteries.

Thanks for listening, and hope you can help.

You have placed a "flower" instead of correcting the F.AG. The new way is even better. Please use it.

I know at times it can really try ones soul to wait and wait for corrections to take effect. I have some that go back to early 2012 still on the books!

You can always try that e-address of edit@findagrave.com if all else fails.

Thanks for listening.

Richard Remer
Anna Bedford BUNNER Duer
Mark, Anna Bedford BUNNER was the daughter of Capt. George BUNNER (1744/Philadelphia-1789/Savannah), one-time merchant in the West Indies trade, then privateer in the American Revolution. His wife was Jane CUYLER (dates unknown), daughter of Teleman CUYLER of New York, and his wife, Jeanne Latouche. Anna Bedford Bunner was born in Philadelphia about 1783, shortly before her father and family relocated to Savannah, Georgia. The BUNNER geneaology has been difficult to establish, since the name was often incorrectly transcribed as BONNER or BENNER. Her grandfather, Rudolph BUNNER (born circ 1711) was from the Palatinate (southwestern Germany), arrived in Philadelphia in Sept. 1732, was an innkeeper in the Old City/Philadelphia, where he died about November 1784.

Brooks in Steuben
Dear Marc, We may be related as I saw your message on Abraham Brooks grave and he is my gggg grandfather at least. I would like to know if you have searched the Brooks line including Abraham and his son Cyrus. I have listened to family stories since I was a child and went to find some graves in New England two years ago. I stumbled into Lee Center Cem to see the graves of Samuel Wright and Vienna Bond as I had found them in Find A Grave prior to the trip. As I walked toward his grave, I spotted Sybil Curtis and said to my husband, OMG, that is Sybil Brooks the wife of Efraim Curtis. I also then saw James Young and Hannah, probably, Fuller. I have much info on these lines, but am unable to find much on Cyrus Brooks and Lydia, probably YOUNG. If you know anything about this line or how to find the info, please contact me. I, too, am trying to leave clear records for my descendents. Thank you in advance, Kathryn Engel

Cousins?
Yes Marc,
It seems we must be cousins. I descend from Anthony and Mary Ann "Polly" through George Lewis, Lewis George, Donald Lewis. I don't know which line you come off from but if Anthony and Polly were your grandparents, we're definitely cousins. How 'bout we work together on things.

I tried to upload a picture I took of David Stoops 1770-1854 in McDonald Cemetery, Marshall County. My page shut down so I did a search for David Stoops to find the page again. Your David Stoops came up from Maple Grove cemetery. IT'S THE SAME HEADSTONE. I'm freaked out!
Check it out.

Marc,
I noticed you have outstanding photo requests for Cedar Hill Cemetery in Suitland Maryland. I am preparing for a trip there Sept 8th and I'm planning on trying to fulfill as many of these as I can. Since this cemetery is so large (about 80,000 graves) it would help to have the section and plots of the burials. I have spoken to a lady at the cemetery named Carmelita Walker. She said she can't give the locations of these sites to me since they are not related to me but she said if you could give her a call at 301-568-5400 and tell her that you are a relative (or think you may be!) she can give it to you. She said there is no charge for her to look up this information. Once we have this information it will be sooo much easier to find the grave and photograph it. If you are no longer interested in fulfilling the request for whatever reason, just let me know too so I can cross it off my list. Thanks!

Marc,
I believe that the photos that you placed for Thomas Ransel Brooks, are my photos. I know you created the page, but I think proper recognition should be given regarding the photos. I am named for Thomas Ransel Brooks as he was my gggf. Also, I would love to see if we are distantly related as I have Ryans on the paternal side of my family.
In case you are interested, there are several members of the family buried at that one site without headstones or markers.
