Still trying to figure out Augusta LESSEL's first married name, her first husband's full name, the other child along with Friedericke and her parents. I can only guess her full first name might be Anna Augusta Margaretha since that runs in the family. Her obit says RAMSALL but her daughter's (Freid) marriage license states RAMSEIER. There were RAMSEYERs in the area at eh time though. Any clues on your end ?

Huge thanks, Chris.

Photo request
I would like the picture and caption under the barn from the Find a Grave site for Joseph D. Miller.
I am his great great neice and I live close to the Middlebury area. I've already found grandparents' graves in the Shipshewana and Middlebury IN area.
A photo is a rare find. Thanks for your help...from a member of the Barbara and also John Hochstetler family.

Scanned obits
This statement is found in Find A Grave--FAQ's:
"No scans of obituaries or newspaper articles."
Now, did you have to be so rude to us about do's & don't's that Find A Grave requires?
We DID NOT set their regulations. Send them a rude, nasty message like the one you sent us.

scanned obits
Find A Grave does not want scanned obits added to the memorials in the photo section. Please remove the scanned obit from our memorial for Louise E. Phillips Hostetler. We already have her obit added to her memorial.
Thank you
If we find more of these added to our memorials, we will be sending you a message of removable, which would be better for you, than us contacting Find A Grave.

Incorrect Photo?
I believe the photo for Cornelia Harmon Cheney you added to Find A Grave

is incorrect. I have a picture of "Nellie" with her second husband Seneca Knowlton Cheney that I'm confident is accurate, and I'm pretty sure they are not the same woman. How did you obtain the picture you posted and how confident are you that it is correct?

Brighton Chapel Cemetery. This is a duplicate record. I added the obit from your record. I hope that it is OK with you.

RE: Mary Dillon Marker

Wow! You didn't need to transfer the memorial to me, but, I will gladly take care of it.

RE: Name on gravestone: Francis L. Hawks, D.D., L.L.D.
Hi! I plan to go to that cemetery soon to photograph each Pott and Hawks stone. Meanwhile, I have a Pott family plot photo and am using the "Connecticut, Hale Cemetery Inscriptions and Newspaper Notices, 1629-1934" for initial information - comparing as I photograph stones. I would imagine that gravestone for this gentleman is pretty prominent/easy to find. Hope so!

I noticed that you put a photo of a newspaper article on her memorial. Would you please put the date of that newspaper? Thanks so much. Lori

Thank you for the article clip
Thank you for also posting the article. Bontrager, Borntrager, boy that could get confusing! Is she related to you?

Also in the cemetery is my mother, Helen Coon. If you feel so led, her Find A Grave # is 111564175. I'll be seeing her real grave in a few weeks when we visit our family in Topeka and Goshen, and my son enrolls at Goshen College (classes and orientation).

RE: Jame Crill
Thank you - I have a few of the children buried here in Lancaster, Erie Co., New York. Trying to connect the family. Too bad we seemed to have lost the mother somewhere. The Crill family was in Lancaster/Alden NY for quite some time - probably close to 15-20 years. Thanks again :)

Nysson - Riverside - # 22771103

I was at this gravesite yesterday, and found that Albert Nysson's wife, Aseneth, is also buried here. Since you have two memorials for Albert W. "Nysson" (# 22771104) and Albert W. "Nyson" (# 22771103), it occurred to me that perhaps plot ownership was the reason.

If one of these memorials/plots should be for Aseneth (Whiting) Nysson, she was born Aug 1947 in Greene, Chenango, New York and died (as shown on her headstone) 26 Jan 1924 in Battle Creek. I took a photo of her headstone which I'm happy to add if you decide to edit one of these memorials for her.

Thanks for your research. I will refrain from changing the death date, as I usually stick with what is on the stone even if it's wrong. The obit you posted is for Johannes Fisher, not Visser, and in this case I won't be changing the name from that on the stone either. Best regards.

Frances Lavina Burlingham
Chris I check the Frances #22634439 it is correct, if you check her burial record you will she that her obit misprinted her date of birth, making it look as if she was only 1 year of age at the time of her death. She was actually born April 27, 1857. He maiden name was Loomis. He 1st husband, Joseph Hancock, drowned in Lake Michigan in 1893 and his body was never recovered.

I would appreciate it if you could change her date of birth on the FIND A GRAVE web site. I would like to add her to son, Wallace Hancock's #22712797.

Thank you for your help.
