|John O'Grady||RE: Maeve Binchy|
I will try to do so, when the final details are completed.
The editors have "strange" requirements concerning the biographies of "Famous People". Some submissions I made were not considered "literary" enough.
I'm not really sure that I think the "Famous People" category is appropriate. We are all equal in death, so perhaps there should be no such discrimination.
I will keep you informed

|Dave Mitchell||Ballylennon Presbyterian|
Any chance you would be in the vicinity of Ballylennon Presbyterian Churchyard, for a tombstone search and photo?
Happy to cover your costs.
Looking for Rev. Robert Mitchell (d. 1901) also wife Mary Jane (Gourley) Mitchell (d. 1924), part of Gourley family of Craigadoes -- she was a cousin of Rev A. G. Lecky, who was minister at Ballylennon. He was minister at Leckpatrick, co. Tyrone - the couple lived at Ballymagorry. Valerie Adams at Presbyterian Historical Society says they are both buried at Ballylennon.
I'm keen to get a tombstone photo, also very keen to see if there is any mention of Rev. Robert Mitchell's date of birth (or age) on the tombstone or in the church's burial records.

some time ago you may remember you searched for a grave that proved unsuccessful due to wrong information, earlier i looked for my gt gt grandfather William Henry Edwards who died 10/2/ 1918.
The roots Ireland website gives his location as Glendermott new plot H11/6 so i have no idea as to where the other website got it's info from.
Once again if you are in that area i would appreciate a picture if you have the time to search, then i can contact them to demand an explanation as to why they are charging money for false information.

|Cindi Greer||RE: Kilmacrennan/Letterkenny Gregg Family|
Hi Bob! Thank you for the info. My info came from www.rootsireland.ie Gravestone inscription record I purchased for Richard Gregg. The record has Parish/District as Kilmacrenan, County as Co. Donegal, Graveyard as Kilmacrennan Plot No. 3P with notes that it is in Protestant section of Graveyard and the inscription of the names & dates. The family lived in Moneylagen in 1850's-1890's. Which I was told was only a 10 minute walk or so the Parks home(married granddaughter of Richard) in Letterkenny. Is there another cemetery called Kilmacrennan in the area? I apologize for having the in the wrong one & will remove them, but would like to know where they actually are! The stone was purchased by money "sent home" by my 2nd great grandfather & his brother who returned to see the stone placed. Thanks for any help you might give in directing me to the correct cemetery. Cindi Hoy-Greer

Hi Bob, I noticed you had taken a picture at the Kilmacrennan Cemetery in Letterkenny. I have a grave photo would like from that cemetery and as I am in the US will probably never get to take it myself though getting there is something I would love to do! It is for the Richard Gregg family stone Protestant section Plot 3P Inscription begins with Richard Gregg born May 1786 Died June 1840 and lists other family members Fanny, Finley, William, Mary, Matilda, Jane, & Richard. If you are ever back that way and find it I would love to have a photo. I am getting ready to enter the names into the cemetery here on findagrave. Thanks! Cindi Hoy-Greer

|Anne Philbrick||RE: Robert Hamilton and family|
The Robert Hamilton that I'm referring to is Company Serjeant Major Robert R Hamilton, memorial # 16079084. I suspect that the two photographs were taken at a cemetery in or near Derry. The memorial that they're attached to, however, is for the Pozières Memorial in France. The headstone has the names of other family members as well. I'm interested in learning the name of the cemetery where the family is interred. Thanks.

|Anne Philbrick||Robert Hamilton and family|
I'm interested in the photos that you took for the headstone of the Hamilton family in Derry. I have almost completed a Wikipedia article on soldier Robert Hamilton, of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, who died in France in 1918. I plan on completing the article this afternoon and sending it "live." Can you tell me the name and location of the cemetery where you sent the photos? I'm both a Find A Grave volunteer and a Wikipedia volunteer. I plan on linking my Wikipedia article to the Find A Grave memorial. Thank you.

I would be pleased to have your opinion on whethether or not the two should be merged on findagrave-you have clearly been there. There are pros and cons which are too many to discuss by private message.

|Chris Arrott||RE: William Arrott|
Thanks Bob. I do indeed know of Don Montague. He is a distant cousin. I believe he lives in France. He did not attend our reunion in Pittsburgh in 2008 so I did not get to meet him. The link to the will is fantastic. I guess he was not as successful financially as his son...but times were different in those days with America being a place of great growth. My cousin Tony Arrott has done extensive research into our family name and was happy to see this information especially on his wife Jane Arrott. Thanks again for this...it is fun to discover. Best Regards, Chris

|Chris Arrott||William Arrott|
Hi Bob, Thanks for taking this photo. William Arrott is my Great Great Great Grandfather. His son James West Arrott 1st immigrated to the USA in 1855. He became one of the titans of the industrial revolution in the USA. He founded James West Arrott Insurance Company which went on to be National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh which became part of AIG. He also founded Standard Sanitary which merged with American Radiator to become American Standard. His family had a reunion is 2008 with many of us not knowing each other. This is exciting to know where his mother and father are buried. It has been somewhat of a mystery. Thanks very much for this. Now I must plan my trip to Ireland to visit. Best Regards, Chris Arrott
