RE: Re: John McCann
I have been working on my McCann family back to my great great grandparents who were the immigrants coming from Ireland.

Since our "McCann" are in general area, coming to Saginaw, then going to Bethany - Gratiot County, MI
then to Porter Township, Midland County, Michigan.

I am still trying to locate one great great aunt and one great great uncle - which is why I probably keep seeing your input.

If you notice a connection, please let me know.

RE: Zion Lutheran Church
I contacted Find A Grave regarding the matter. They removed the wrong church photo. I added the correct photo.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your son. My condolences. I can't imagine....

Hi Deana
I sent you an e-mail awhile back. Not sure if you got it or not so hopefully you will see this. The cemetery is doing a pamphlet on the majors of Springfield and I would like a picture of Charles Eggimann for it. Would you mind sending me one. If you don't have my address I will send it to you. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Zion Lutheran Church
Hello Deana, you added a photo of Zion Lutheran Church (Bay County, MI), it is the wrong church photo. The cemetery sign is correct. Only the church is wrong. I contacted you a year or two ago regarding it, I also submitted a photo of the church this week with a message regarding the descrepency. I was hoping whoever approves photos would have the wrong photo removed. Do you have any ideas how to get it removed?

Ginger Gilmore
Hugh Sevier Fuller
Hi Deana,
I'm Lieutenant Ginger Gilmore with the Wichita Falls (TX) Police Department. Our department is researching our officers who were killed in the line of duty. Hugh Sevier Fuller was one of those officers. This year is our department's 125th anniversary and we're putting together a commemorative yearbook. We're especially focusing on the history of our department. We have never had a photo of Hugh to honor him on our wall of fallen officers, or to put in the book we're creating. If you have one from any of your genealogical research, we would love to have a copy. We would also like to correspond with any distant relatives. I was excited to see you're a cousin, you're the first family we've ever found of his!
I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you!

Bob & Bonnie McEver
Files Valley Cemetery
This relates to the status of the cemetery in Files Valley, TX. In the 1970s, a board was established to oversee maintenance of the cemetery. All of the board members are now deceased. In order to insure some level of maintenance going forward, a new board should be established. A meeting seems necessary to reestablish the board and the first group to make contact with, before going to the general population of the community, in my opinion, should be those FindAGrave Contributors who have shown an interest and demonstrated some effort to preserve the memory of those interred there. If you have experience in managing small cemeteries and/or the interest to participate in this process, please contact me via email at

Regards and thanks for all your work for FindAGrave.

Erna Louise Lenaburg Wiest
Erna Louise Schultz b. 24 Aug 1899 to Edward Emil Schultz and Helena "Lena" Christine Lenaburg. According to a family history booklet, she married Robert C. Lenaburg in 1923 a very short time before marrying George Emil Wiest. I can find no record of either marriage. So I am not sure about the marriage to Robert C Lenaburg, who was the son of Reinhold Robert Lenaburg & Josie Kerschner Lenaburg.

Erna's mother Lena Lenaburg Schultz was a sister of my grandmother Anna Alvina Lenaburg Magandy. She was granddaughter of Herman Adolph Lenaburg, brother to Reinhold - so perhaps when discovering they were cousins, Erna Schultz & Robert C. Lenaburg had their marriage dissolved.

The Erna Louise Schultz marriage to Robert C. Lenaburg is mystery to me and I keep hoping someone can give me some documented facts. Yet Lenaburg is on the headstone along with Erna Wiest! I know of no other Erna Lenaburgs in the family so believe it is Erna Schultz Lenaburg Wiest.

Can you give me a little more information as to where the cemetery might be? I'll attempt the request this afternoon if I can find it.

Please check the memorials you added to Ebenezer AME Church in Lincoln County, Mississippi. These memeorials are in the wrong cemetery.

Photo of Zion church (Bay County MI)
Hello Deana, I'm a brand new member (just joined yesterday), but I noticed you added a photo of Zion Lutheran Church located in Beaver Township, Bay County MI. Although it is a nice looking church, it is not Zion. I drive by this church frequently, would you like me to take another photo for you.

I live near Moseley and I see that there is another request for Arthur. You have 2 requests. I am more than willing to go and take these pictures but have no idea where this cemetery is. I spent a few hours last week looking for 2 other small, private cemeteries in the county. The cemetery page has no directions to find this. It is my thought that these small, family cemeteries are now on private property. I would contact the current owners before going onto their property. Can you give me any idea where this is - a road or address? Have you checked with the Chesterfield County Historical Society for additional information? Let me know your thoughts. I have been through this with my own family and ended up in a cow pasture in upstate NY !!!

Just a quick note to let you know I claimed your request for photos of Byron Evans #50927041 & Beuhlah Evans #41583782 in Jerusalem Cemetery, Wales, WI. We still have quite a bit of snow cover, but expecting a few warmer days (40's) here soon. If not in the two week suggested time period, we'll get them done as the weather breaks. Have a good day.

Hey Deana,
Many thanks for providing the death info. I have changed it and noted the discrepancy in his bio.
Also, I have to say, the foto is not up to the quality that I produce now. That was my first year on findagrave and therefore, just learning the ropes.
Again, thanks for catching my error.
Later, James Coston

William Patrick Wallace
Hello Deana,

I am the volunteer that took the photograph of Mr. Wallace.
Honestly, I'm not happy with the picture. It's dark and seems a bit blurry.

The next time I am at Fairview Cemetery. I will get another picture, a BETTER picture for you.

I'm not sure exactly what happened with my camera, but I'll make it right for you; I just wanted to let you know.
