Diane Badger
Sarah Roath
I am little confused with your dates for Sarah Roath. I have her born in 1694 and dying before 1727. She married Daniel Badger in 1719. and had three children before he remarried in 1727 to Patience Durkee. Your listing has her born in 1692 and dying in 1694

Hi Nelson,

Thomas and Anna Carey have been linked to John. If you would like to manage the memorials for John, Nelson Sr and Nelson Jr, I would be happy to transfer them to you.

RE: Carey
Hi Nelson,

Serena Vallandingham Carey was the sister of my 2nd great-grandfather, Louis Vallandingham. So, you and I share Nelson & Matilda Vallandingham as ancestors.

George W. Sholes #36847452
I believe the 1861 date of death on this memorial is wrong. I think the 1861 on the plaque is possibly his Civil War service date, although his age may be too old for CW. I find George living with 2nd wife Lucinda in Ledyard according to the 1880 Federal census. He is age 82. Barbour has his 10/13/1997 birth in Groton. I submitted that as an edit request. I found a date of death of 21 January 1886 in an on-line tree but there was no source given so I did not submit that.

It looks like this may not be Herman Roath wife.

Edits for the Roath family
The edits I've made for the Roath family come from the book Bromley Genealogy by Viola Bromley from 1911. Eliza Ann Bromley was the mother of Henry Austin Roath. His first wife, Clarissa Nash Andrews was the daughter of Zepheniah and Grace (Nash) Andrews.
Thank you very much
Jess Bromley

parent links for Lewis Miller
Hi again - please look over the links you provided. Both "parents" would have only been 9 years older than Lewis. I'll wait until you sort it out. Thanks

Hi again Nelson, I have transferred his memorial to you. The links are awaiting. Have a safe and rewarding 2015 :)

Louis Allen
Hi Nelson - I did not link to the parents you suggested as they are both designated burial unknown. Would you also remove the obit you added as photo? Find A Grave specifically says not to.

I have added the parents names in the bio area.

East Hampton
Cedar Lawn Cemetery
I have added King Wyandanch to the Cedar Lawn Cemetery in EH. I had found an old newpaper article reporting on his burial there, and then I found your listing in Montauk. The article also lists his wife Florence's maiden name. You can read it on his page on Find A Grave at Cedar Lawn,EH. Do you want to edit your page to Cedar Lawn and then I will delete mine? Or do you have other information that contradicts Cedar Lawn as the burial site?

Record added May 29,2009 Memorial # 37684905. I am researching Stanton family in which Daisy F. Stanton born 1-3-1929 and passed 1999 is my grandson's great-great grandmother however, I see another site with just "DAISY" could you please read out the inscription on the bottom or how do I enlarge it? for what I understand Daisy F.Stanton (Hazard,White # 100121116) is this a different "Daisy"

Tree building
Find A Grave is not a site for tree building.

Maiden name
Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.
So when you are entering a memorial for a child, the last name goes in the last name field, not the maiden name field.When you put it in the maiden name field the memorial is not searchable as it is in the database with no last name. The same is true of an adult woman who never married. Her surname is the last name, not a maiden name. ie: Aunt Jennie Smith who died age 95 is Jennie Smith not Jennie (Smith)
