RE: the three sisters that i can not find last names
I do not do research for others. I enjoy photographing the stones in various cemeteries to help others.

RE: the grabbe family

Have you read the FAQ by Find A Grave about transferring memorials? I'm copying what they say below. If you really want me to transfer them to you, kindly let me know which ones by the memorial number and also let me know your contributor id number.

I'd be happy to make any additions or corrections to the memorials I manage, but I've put an awful lot of work into getting the photos, photoshopping them, and creating the memorials. As I've done over 14000 memorials and over 20000 photos, it takes me time just to try to locate the memorials you're writing about. Having the memorial numbers would help a lot.

Here's what Find A Grave says:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests must not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor will make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

NOTE: If you are unable to edit a memorial after it has been transferred to your account, try logging out of Find A Grave then logging back in.

I'll await your reply.

RE: the grabbe family

How are you related to the Grabbe's that you want me to transfer to you?

I do not do research. I photographed every marker in several cemeteries in this area and added photos to already-created memorials that had no photos or I created memorials where none existed.

All the best,
Jim Bellert

Are you currently looking for Rose Skaggs brother Harry and if so do you think he's buried in Indianapolis?

Added by Derric Deon on Nov 07, 2014 12:15 PM

Rosa Skaggs
Would you mind terribly posting the photo of Rosa, that would be a wonderful way to remember her on here?

Thank you,

RE: hi pam
I would be proud to let you care for him. It sounds like you are in touch with him through his family now and you should be responsible for him.

Thank you for your kind words and of course for all you did over there for this country. Vietnam was a hard one and we should honor all those that went there.

If you need anything or I can help in anyway please let me know.

RE: pam proof of william ullmer found
OK I put him Fort Rosecrans and requested a photo of the tombstone.

Who is this person that is "hogging" Fort Rosecrans?

I am not sure what you are telling me. How can someone lock anyone out of a National Cemetery?

I would like to know more about PFC Ullmer though.

RE: not sure if you are interested
Oh I am interested. I looked at your profile here and didn't see anything. Where is it?

I would love to see what you've done.

Hi Dan,
I can't remove the RIP stone pic. Only the person that put it there can remove it. If you want to remove it, it will give me the space to add a grave marker picture. I have been going to the cemetery lately. Thanks! Sheryl

William Arthur Ullmer

I am asking yet another volunteer to check Fort Rosecrans for your friend. I am so sorry we cannot locate any burial information.

I have tried:
National Gravesite Locator
I have posted what I found about him on Find A Grave and hope that someone will let us know.

Will keep you informed.

I had a Jerry Huffman look for the gravesite. No luck even the office says he's not there.

RE: hi i wonder if you could help

Did you ever get this mess straightened out? I would really like to help you. Not sure when or if I will get to Fort Rosecrans but maybe I can get someone to help us.

RE: hi i wonder if you could help
I believe that he may be there. But according to the research I did on his name, there is no mention of where.

Do you have an obituary? Where you at the funeral? Tell me how you know he's at Ft Rosecrans. To be honest with you, a grave site location would be helpful.

RE: pfc william arthur ullmer
There are 17 Ullmer names in the National Cemeteries, but I don't find any William yet.

Here is the link to the Nationwide Gravesite Locator website run by the
United States Department of Vetern Affairs

RE: hi kathy

I have added your brother to my DCHS virtual cemetery, there is no need to transfer him to me and that would have to be done by the person that memorialized him (think you said it was his daughter).

Thanks for the info..
