wonderful findagrave.com contributor
I just wanted to tell you that you are a wonderful contributor to findagrave.com. You are always a joy to work with and you are not all about the numbers you have. You are about the family. Thank you for your consideration. Everyone does not have that in mind.

RE: Joseph Wimberly
No problem. I'm sure it was a simple oversight. I prefer to notify the original creator, just in case the new memorial has new information (family links, photos, etc.) that can be moved over to the original memorial.

more re Louis Fahrlender
I saw Tracirose's message for you after I sent mine, and I think the birth record makes the 1875 date the clear "winner." I just tweaked the caption on the image of the 1900 census. - Jay

RE: Louis Fahrlender
Hi, apbr. I admire your diligence in trying to come up with the correct date of birth. Because "Louis" apparently was born in 1873 or 1875 (depending on which record you believe), my immediate thought when I saw your message was, "What does the 1880 census say?" Because the 1880 census is probably the public record created closest to his date of birth, deference would normally be given to it as the "next best thing to a birth certificate." But, as luck would have it, your message didn't mention the 1880 census. And, wouldn't you know, when I _did_ find the 1880 census record for the family in Hillsboro, it just complicated things. The father, listed as Leopold in the 1900 census, is listed as Lewis, age 36, in the 1880 census; it has to be the same man. And the child we're looking for, listed as "Louis" in 1900, is listed as Leopold, age 5, in 1880. [Adding to the family's musical chairs played with names, "Walter" in 1880 becomes "Joseph W." in 1900.]

My take on this is that one of two things happened -- either #1 the census taker in 1880 accidentally reversed the names of the father and son or #2 the son we're looking at was named for the father, and they were using "Louis" as an Anglicized substitute "Leopold." The latter seems unlikely, because Louis/Lewis would seem much more likely as a substitute for Ludwig. As luck would have it, although there are birth records for several of this son's siblings, there seems to be none for him.

As for the date of birth to use on the F.A.G. memorial, I'd give the usual deference to the earliest record (the 1880 census) and therefore use the March 1875 date of birth, but I'd explain the discrepancy (lots of luck doing that!) in the bio section so that other people don't have to retrace your steps. One more thing to note, just in case you haven't noticed: you said in the message you posted on my profile page that "for now" you were going with the 1875 date, but as I see the memorial at the moment, you have the 1873 date. Best of luck with this! - Jay

RE: Louis Fahrlender
Hello,
You are welcome for the additional information I have provided. The proof I have for the birth is located on Family Search in the Birth/Probates records.
Here is the link.... https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X6FG-14M

The only issue is that the mothers name is transcribed as Hattie Custer and it should be Katie Custer. Also I show his father as Leopold Lewis Fahrlender born 17 Jun 1843 and died 24 Oct 1913.

I am hoping this is what you re looking for??? Let me know :o)

Headstones
Yes, I just need some info, I heard that Find A Grave was removing the headstone photos from the memorials, do you know anything about this or have you heard. I have noticed that some of the headstones on my memorials are not there anymore. Sure would like to hear back from you.
