"Rudolph Hulett's name may have included "Albert," but it's my policy to match my memorials to the names on the gravestones. Otherwise, someone will come along behind me and create a duplicate memorial."

Of course, it's entirely up to you but...I found him on a Census as Albert R Hulett. I have numerous memorials that have another name that doesn't appear on the marker and to my knowledge no one has made duplicates. Just wanted to make this information available. Again, it's entirely your choice.

RE: E. Adelbert Wells # 52970605
Hi Janet. I have 23 photograph and tintype JPGs recently sent to me by a Walter Hooker over for several of my very distant cousins. Walter’s hobby is collecting and scanning old photos, both front and back, for their Ancestry relatives. Somehow he managed to find me through Ancestry. These photos include a family group for: Edwin Wells Gibson, Edmund Harrison Gibson, Harry Potter, Jonas Gibson, Lucia Loomis Blossom, Rebecca Blossom Wells, and Roxie Potter.

I cleaned each of them up with Photoshop before posting to my Ancestry pages, along with trying to find their Find-A-Grave listings. At this point I will gladly send them all to you as an email attachment for your further disposition if you provide an email address. You can reach me at prestonadams3 Kindest regards, SP Adams, Sarasota, FL.

RE: Frank Howland sponsorship
Hi Janet, yes I'm still working on those Howland, Simpson, Dodds, Harkness etc connections.
I hope to eventually sponsor all of Abbie & Frank's Howland children, (I have the boys left I believe).

The Howland children's many letters covering 30+ years of life in Waterford and Greenvale Twps in Dakota County, has kept me entertained and warm and happy through many a cold winter night- reports of the crops in the fields, apple harvests and butter making, town fairs, who was sick, who was in love, friends and neighbors and especially family pitching in when bad weather and bad times came, simpler times in days gone by...

Janet, I agree with your policy on edits. Actually, I contacted findagrave personnel and informed them I will not accept edits at all. They understand where I'm coming from. I am, though, more than happy to transfer the memorials in question (unless they are related to me). This is stated on my profile page. Many people don't read my profile page though. Some people are very nice abt my policy and some get upset. When they see I will transfer the memorials in question they're usually fine.

RE: John & Harvey Harrington
Hi Janet,

Not sure what you are talking about Harvey Memorial. Before you accuse someone, please make sure you look at the person that was the contributor.
I have not created a findagrave memorial in months.

RE: Elizabeth Rockwell Warren
My source for Eliza Rockwell Warren's memorial (#28295472) update comes from "The Rockwell Family" book, 2nd edition, published 2008, page 384, by Kenneth W. Rockwell.

Secondly, Nathan and Eliza had five (5) children. You may want to add Henrietta born and died 1850.

RE: Lois Gibs Memorial# 132916099
Hi again, I never said she was born in Pawlet did I ? If I did, I miswrote. I wanted her birth year corrected for the most part. I agree with you on the headstones. Even if they're wrong, they are set in stone, pardon my pun. Thanks again

RE: Brockways
Hi Janet: hearing about the unfortunate condition of these graves makes me all the more appreciative of the important work you've been doing to document and photograph them. My aunt has been working on the Brockway branch of our family tree for the past few years and it's a real blessing to be able to see photos of these stones, since neither of us are able to travel. Thank you so very much. -Adrian

Wow! Thanks so much for the additional Brockway photos! This means so much to the family. :)

RE: Andrew Potter
You are most welcome. I am working on getting your other St. Lawrence County pics also, You have done much work on my Howe/Kilbounre family from Wells, VT which I greatly appreciate.

Your work is very well researched and trustworthy so you have helped my family history so much. My great grandfather Edgar Aldous has a one year discrepancy in his headstone birthdate and his other records. Seems to be a a common dilemma with the Howe family ( he married Edith Howe).

If you are ever in the GRanville, NY/WElls, VT area and have time, I would love to meet and talk about the work you have done for so many in my families.

Andrew Howk/Huyck #27906291
You have a lot of Howk/Huyck memorials. I was wondering if I could get your opinion on two memorials. I found an Isaac Howk (#14828587) married to Sarah (#14828628) and I think his father might be Andrew. Can you take a look and weigh in? Thanks, Lisa

RE: Philip Spauldin Memorial
The Spalding/Spaulding/Spalden names are spelling differently in so many places, it's hard telling. I've seen that before where the father does not have the "u" and the children do or some of them have the "u" and some not. Crazy bunch I guess. Sometimes the agency doing the spelling (census, death, Birth records, etc. spelled the best they knew how.

RE: Philip Spauldin Memorial
I appreciate your position. It's tough sometimes. Do you think the "G" was either left off on purpose, or faded with time.

I've seen Spaulding/Spalding spelled with Spaulden, but not with the "i".

RE: Byron Eugene Peck
Source is book "The Yaw-Yeaw Family in America". First Edition of this book was 1962 and it was compiled by 3 members of the Yaw-Yeaw Family that had done extensive research on their family lines. At that time the research involved direct communitcations with family members still alive. James Yeaw and I (Carolyn Yeaw) are currently updating this book. We check and recheck all information sent in to us from Yaw-Yeaw family members all over the United States. I truly believe our information is correct.
Thank you.

Yes I check for new Landon memorials every day. I'm sort of obsessed you might say! Thanks for processing the edits!

Francis Symons
I found the answer to my question.
I believe from not finding Francis on the cemetery index, and seeing his death certificate, that Francis was placed in at Vault at Green Lawn until being moved to Vermont for burial. If you can find him buried at the same cemetery as his wife, I would be interested in knowing what you find. I will touch base with Green Lawn Cemetery to see if they have any other information on Francis.

Do you know where the parents or wife were buried?

Added by Patty on Jul 18, 2016 4:26 PM

I am going to decline
're messages you left on my public message board: "Joannah (Marchant) Randal
I am going to decline your edit because I don't link my memorials to people whose burials are unknown.
Janet Muff" Thank you for your message, I am not certain to whom you were referring to as I need a memorial number to reference.
