RE: William Mabe

You helped me before and since I can't get anyone at Find a Grave to reply to my question I thought you might point me in the right direction.

I am trying to get the ownership of two graves (#16391638 & #16391619) transferred to me but they were added by an anonymous person. Any ideas how I can make this happen?

James Sutherland
Howard, I am looking for a James Sutherland (Sutherlin) that married a Rachel Gwinn 12 Nov 1840 in Jefferson County Tenn. They had a daughter Malinda Jane Sutherlin. She married Marcus Mills in Daviess County Kentucky. Their son James Mills married Mary Matilda Sutherlin the daughter of Evan Sutherlin. Evan was the son of William Southerland.

Thank you for all your additions. My ancestors (great grandparents) were Truans who left Tennessee sometime around the 1910's and settled in Alhambra, California where my mother was born in 1942.

RE: duplicates
Thank you for the information. Your work is appreciated and your photos are excellent. I have used the Natl. Gravesite Locator for reference, but wasn't sure how accurate it is. I will give those "not here" memorials some attention when we are done with the duplicates. I'll see if I can either match them with a correctly spelled memorial by plot number or find out where they are really buried.

RE: duplicates
Howard, in almost all of the ones that USVA spelled the name wrong I sent the SAC to USVA and not you even though theirs was first. support(at)findagrave edits them, and I told them yours was the correct one. The last time I checked they were processing them and giving the contributor with the correct spelling management. All of the others, if there was a mistake or dates needed, I did submit edits through the new edit system. With the new system edits are being done more quickly - not perfect yet, but much better. We really are trying to clean up the mess the data import caused.

Hey Howard,

I checked out the information and appreciate the additions. I have sent some more information on my great grandparents for your consideration.

Take care,

RE: Joseph Alexander Davis
Hey Howard,

I have the information on Mr. Gentry because he was a step-son of Joseph Alexander Davis. It's not necessary I suppose, but anyone kin on this side may like the additional information for reference sake. If you don't think it is necessary please feel free to remove it. Quite alright.

RE: Winnie Dobyns
Yes, so have I found second marriages after first husband has died. I have found nothing on to give me any indication of that for either a Winnie Dobyns or a Winnie Dobbins. I sent you a change by way of the new edit system to change maiden name from Dobbins to Dobyns. I am putting together a new book on The Ledgerwood Family, so I will come across this again. Hehehehehe
Many Blessings and much laughter!

Don Yearout
First of all thank you for posting this cemetery. I have looked a long time to find my 4th great grandfather Abraham Yearout and I used to check findagrave often, but have not in probably a year. I logged in and did the searches I usually do and low and behold you had added this cemetery. Thanks again. I am planning on coming to this cemetery, but I cannot even with GPS locate it. Do you by chance know the approx address? Thank You.

Dana Holloway request
Thank you for your information - not being from Tennessee - I didn't know there was a different Union Cemetery. If you do find Dana there please let me know and I will change her memorial to the other cemetery before you add any photos. Thanks again for all your time and help, I really appreciate it!

RE: photo tricks
Howard, Wow, that is a much bigger mirror (and distance!) than I would have ever imagined! Thank you so much for the tip! Yesterday was actually a rare day - overcast enough to be perfect with no glare - and I was able to take many new photos! Sun is bright again today. I'm going to shop for a cheap big mirror! Thanks again!

And I meant to say that here in Northern California central valley, we have very few non-sunny days that aren't rain! When we do, the overcast is often so thin that all it does is create a bad glare. Tricks?

RE: photo tricks
I also carry a "kit" but I've been having a hard time with the shady side of graves and also take second trips to shoot the other side. But there are two sections at the national cemetery I work that are south-facing so the back side, with the location engraving and the spouse, are always shaded. Unless I manage to catch free time on a very overcast day, I'm out of luck and the photos, after photoshopping to make them legible, look too bright. I love the idea of the mirror! I never thought of that! How big of a mirror do you use? I do carry an umbrella to soften glaring light, but it's hard to hold and shoot at the same time. Anyway, I really appreciate your care and diligence!
Happy New Year to you.

Dear Sir, my good friend was engaged to Herbert when he was killed. She is not on FindaGrave, but knows I am and asked me to find him. She and her husband recently got to visit his grave. She gave me the information and I looked him up tonight and see that you took very good photos of his marker. Thank you! Thank you for caring enough to make sure the photos are good, legible, and without bird droppings! It means more than you will know.

Thank you!
Thank you for giving me my great-grandfather Jeff Hall's memorial, sir! I truly appreciate it.

Looking around Find a Grave for graves in TN, I see your name or pictures everywhere. Thank you for all that you do for all of us!

Edith Scandlyn
Dear Howard,
She is buried under the name Edith Scandlyn. I'd think you could keep the original memorial you created with a note on her bio indicating she is buried in the other plot and may have remarried, giving names of both spouses. You are just too nice..... I can't tell you how much I've appreciated all of the help you've given to me the past few years in finding my (our) Burkhart relatives in Tennessee. Even though I'm in Oregon, I feel an affinity to your state and wish I could visit there some day, along with the Carolinas, Maryland and Georgia for I have many relatives on both my maternal and paternal sides of the family who lived there and their descendants are living there now. Wish I could take abt. 20 yrs. off of my tired body so I could take such a trip, but, if my dumb knees ever get replaced, you never know. Take care and have a wonderful Christmas. With All Sincerity,
Your Cousin, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, OR
