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 Grassmann Schairer
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?

Robert Franklin
Jeremiah Mead family
I am the great, great grandson of Hugh Mead through his daughter Frances Mead who married Truman Tingley. After my parents died in 2005 we found a bundle of letters from Walter, Benjamin C, and Eliza Mead to Hugh. In addition I have a hand written marriage certificate for Hugh and a death certificate for Charlotte Mead Gaston in the hand of E. C. Close. I am in the process of putting all of the letters and documents on my computer along with the scanned same so that they can be printed front and back and opened side by side to view the scanned letters and the transcription. The transcription is a rather laborious process because of the hand writing and condition of some of the letters which date from 1831, 1832, 1846, 1851 and 1856. If you will give me an email address I will send these two documents as an attachment.

I looked at the photo again and it is Catharine. I'm used to using the more common spelling.

RE: Amos and Catherine Mead
At the top of Catherine's gravemarker it says "Catherine" even though it is faint. Many of the older stones are badly worn. Ninevah is a small cemetery a couple of miles north of the county line on a hill. I snapped as many photos as possible (most of them are family) because most of them I'm directly descended from or are correlative lines.

Amos and Catherine Mead
I submitted the photos I took a few years ago. The inscriptions are hard to read because they're so badly worn. Sorry I had to "break" up the stone but that was the only way I could good shots (or the best ones I could get) of the inscriptions.
