RE: Grassmann photos
You are welcome. I see you were waiting quite a while to see them. The birds left a "present" on top, so I had a jug of water with me and put my old snow scraper to good use. That's why the stone looks a little wet.

Gave a nice weekend.

There is an entry with Nathaniel and Hannah's children listed then lower down after you list the second wife Elizabeth, it lists Nathaniel and Hannah's children again, different ones. Should that be Elizabeth's children. Thank you

There are two other entries which appear to all be the same person. You can go onto the original entry, by another person, per rules of Find A Grave and add your information. Thank you

Hi my name is Tim Horn and I went to findagrave to look at Frances and Allen Smith's tomb from Woodlawn cemetery WPB but the photo is unreadable. Any way you can update the photo so it can be read?

RE: Morris Family
Hi Sandra, found this and thought you might be interested:

The Sardis Church was founded in 1838 or 1839 (records differ). What is often called the original Sardis Methodist Church building was erected on the current site in approximately 1853 by the late Mr. J.D. Morris. He financed the building and acquired the slaves from Turnbull plantation to build the Church.

After the death of Mr. Morris, his widow, Mrs. Katherine Morris, gave the Church to the Waukeenah Charge.

Here is the link to the complete history.

Frances & Florence Pinkston
Hi. I saw your wonderful memorial of Mary Lee Hale Pinkston Green # 11620701. You have two daughters listed for children of T.A. Pinkston and his 1st wife, Holland (Peters) Pinkston as Frances Pinkston that married an Unk Smith and Florence Pinkston. I think that I have located them on findagrave. Frances Ila Pinkston is memorial # 69786500. She married Arthur Smith 69786474 and both are buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Florida. Florence Leona Pinkston was married to Virgil Wesley Kennedy. Her memorial is 134755829. She and Virgil are buried in the Highland Park Cemetery in Knoxville, Knox, Tennessee. Florence L. Kennedy and Frances Ila (listed as Anderson) and two Smith Children; Frederick b. abt 1915 and Susie b. abt 1918 are living together in the 1920 census in Brunswick, Glynn, Georgia. I hope that this tid bit of information is helpful. God Bless. Alton P. Christie

Shawn Hemond
John Victor Johnson
Hello, my name is Shawn Hemond and I am certain that we share common ancestors. My great grandfather was John Victor Johnson, the little boy in the photo graph, I believe. Sadly, I knew very little about him other than his name and a few stories here and there. I know that my great mother and he parted ways and remarried (or maybe they never were), but I do know they had two daughters; Bonnie Lucille and Martha Victorine (my grandmother), both born in Sanford, Fl. I wasn't sure at first, but by researching your information, I am positive that I am correct. My grandmother passed recently and the obit listed her parents, John Victor Johnson and Rosalie Lightsey, and siblings, which included Hubert and David. I would love to chat with you more about this as I believe that I could learn much from your research, Thank you. You can find me on Facebook if you like and we can find a better way to chat.

RE: Morris Family
We just moved to Monticello about 4 years ago and have not had the opportunity to meet any of the Morris Family. My husband and his family were friends with Louis Gramling Morris. They would hunt on the Morris property from time to time. I see from your memorials that he is the son of Louis Napoleon Morris.

I volunteered to help the City of Monticello update their Roseland Cemetery Listing and started working on the Morris family recently. It's been a challenge but it sure has been fun. I'm taking this opportunity to also create memorials on Find A Grave in hopes of helping family find family. I love genealogy.

Morris Family
Thank you so much for the wonderful memorials you created on the Morris family. Each photo is a treasure and the family history if from the hearts of the Morris family. I'm in the process of adding more Morris memorials from Monticello, Florida and have truly enjoyed reading your Morris Memorials.

What a wonderful gift you have given the Morris families and Find-A-Grave members. A great job...thank you again!

RE: Bertha Grassmann Schairer
Thanks for looking for photos and the web link, I will check it out. Some interesting information regarding Bertha Grassmann Schairer. In the Schairer family 2 brothers #96260304 and # 96873960, both died in train accidents one in 1876 and one in 1904.. A rarity indeed! Rev. Friedrich Schmid, also related to the Schairer family 18337680 was known as the Father of Lutheranism in Michigan and lastly Rev. Albertus Van Raalte the founder of the Dutch Colony in Holland, MI # 6622020 is also related to the Schairer family. Just some interesting info thought you might like to see. Thanks again.

Bertha 36142183 is part of my family history. I have added the family photo giving you the credit in the caption line. I hope that is OK, if not let me know and I will take it off. Do you happen to have any other photos of Bertha? I have nothing regarding Bertha. Thanks. Loved the photos and family history that you have on Find-a-grave.

RE: L CPL Tamario Demetrius Bennett
Thank you for your information. I submitted an edit request for LCPL Burkett's rank change. I am only sponsoring the memorial page and have no authority to make any changes. Brenda N is the memorial manager, and she is the one to make the changes for his burial location, etc.

I have included the link to her profile page.

I have to merge these records . I can not delete any memorial created by the autogravr program.

Here's how this works. I strip off all info from the autogravr record except in this case I leave the interment id as I do want this on your record.

in the bio you will see ***************** when the merger takes places. its harmless and can be deleted. I have to put this on the autogravr record so my volunteers know it is a duplicate and to leave it alone.

If , after the merger, I become the manager, I will transfer it back to you.

Benajah Bouton
I went back to the cemetery today. the historian was not there but the assistant historian was there and she told me that Benajah Bouton's stone was on the restore list back in 2006 and there may be a picture of it on a disc. also I found another benajah Bouton (diff dates then your requested Benajah) in the cemetery with some other Boutons next to it and some unreadable. and some that look like they were restored with rods in them but are again in a few pieces. If I get back again and the historian can tell me where the grave would be compared to the Benajah Bouton that I found we may be able to figure out what unreadable stone it is.
so just to keep you posted I'm still trying to get the picture for you.

RE: Benajah Bouton
I took a quick browse in the cemetery today and I must say most of the gravestones in that section are difficult to read. And any if them are laying flat face down or in pieces. . I'll try to get there on a weekday when the town historian is there and see if he can show me exactly where it would be.

I will try to get a picture when I get up to that area if you don't have it before that. any idea where about in the cemetery the grave may be? or if you can call the cemetery and ask what area even if they just tell you north east quarter or something that would be helpful I pass there pretty often and if you give me the location I can stop in and get the picture. but If I have to spend the time looking for it then I can't do it until I have that kind of time. it could take a while just looking at all the stones. but i'll give it a try.
when would you be finishing your article and need the picture?
