RE: Raymond Layson Van Bussum
They are family but I am getting up in that age group that I feel this stuff needs to be in the hands of younger folks. I had to create some Find A Grave records about 50 that I found in Cemeteries, because there were no records. I will watch them. I usually like to add information to family records when it is obvious they died young or have no children etc to do it. Thank you for keeping the records! It helps a lot when I am doing research on Ancestry. I also do research on Veterans because I feel they deserve it.
Thanks again,
Caroyn Bethel Smith Bastrop Tx.

Thank you so much for creating this memorial for my great grandmother, I would really appreciate it if you would transfer her memorial to me so that I can add photos and merge it with one that has been created under the wrong name and information, that memorial has been transferred to me already. Thank you again.

RE: Gillespie Headstone

Gillespie Headstone
Hi, You posted a memorial for a Gillespie (69119303) and took a headstone photo. I know it's been a while but the headstone is kind of unusual. I was wondering if might remember if these emblems were added onto another headstone? I've looked at all the Meadows and Gillespie headstones and there doesn't seem to be anything similar. One thing I wish Find A Grave could do better is map out which graves are co-located since they could all be in a family plot. I have more than a few Gillespie's out there that emigrated to the US but I'm finding it hard to tie them together with there more documented children and the generational use of common names.
Thanks for your efforts and contributions to Find A Grave.

Micajah Robbins 55257147
Would you consider transferring the memorial for Micajah Robbins #55257147 in Rodney Cem. over to me? Unless you're a descendant of his, in which case I'd love to chat with you more. He's my gr-gr-gr-ganduncle and I'm working on a book on the Robbins families and also planning on coming back from Oregon to visit his cemetery next month! Best wishes, Kevin Mittge, Florence, OR

RE: Royer
Thank you for the transfer. I am related to the Royers only by marriage. Mary Overholt Markley, my third great grandmother, married Daniel Royer(Samuel's older brother) on 18 Jan 1877 after her first husband died. She is buried under her first married name, Markley in Maple Grove Cemetery in Clay County, IN.

Probably told you more than you wanted to know...

But many thanks. I will keep the Royer family together.

I have a copy of a document (didn't realize I didn't catch the date). It involves your grandparents, a John Clingeman, and my step Jeremiah V. Server, in the Clay Co, Indiana area. Would you know anything about it? Will email it to you, if interested.

They weren't real flowers they were the flowers that you can leave which are on the site.

Flowers for Chester R. Willis
I know you probably can't tell me but I'm still going to ask.

I noticed flowers were left on my Brother's site on 2012 and ON HIS MOTHEER'S BIRTDAY.

I'd like to know who left these flowers since I'm assuming it was someone who knew him and our mother.

I see that there are 2 memorials for Margaret Oberholzer in Vandalia Methodist in Owen Co., Indiana. You and the other owner may want to combine.
