Bessie Pinney
I can't tell you how excited I was to find this information about Bessie Pinney. The Herling family had her bedroom set ever since she died. My daughter was the last to use the set before it was donated to the State Historical Society.

My Mother told me she had died by being thrown from a horse but didn't have the details. The headboard used to spook my brothers and me because it looked like someone was peeking over the bed.

Thank you so much!

Permission Request for Find A Grave memorial #83339438
I am publishing a genealogy book containing all the known descendants of my Bradley and Shortall g-great-grandparents from Ireland and Sun Prairie, WI through 6 generations. Pvt John Robert O”Keeffe in the above memorial is a cousins and I would like to include his gravestone photo in the book modified to a black and white photo. The book clearly is a commercial project, but I can assure you it will not be a monetary gain as I expect to hopefully sell only about 50 copies of the book (maybe as many as 100 if I am that fortunate. ) copies to the few descendant relatives with an interest in the family genealogy. I will include full attribution to you for the use of your photos. If you approve my request, please let me know how you prefer to be credited with the photos.

I attempted to contact you via your email address but transmission repeatedly failed.Perhaps you could check the listed email address. I used .

Thank you for your consideration.

Kellys in Resurrection Cemetery

I noticed that you have confused two different Bridget Kellys who are buried in Resurrection Cemetery in Madison. I am writing to ask you to please remove the incorrect stone photo from the memorial of Bridget Kelly d. 1895 (memorial #22146879). I would ask that you please also remove the link to her "husband" James from his memorial (memorial #35293147). His actual wife is Bridget McCarthy Kelly (memorial #138054675)

You photographed this James Kelly (Memorial #35293147) and assumed his wife was the Bridget Kelly entered in to find-a-grave two years earlier by Angela (memorial #22146879). You then added a photo of the stone with James and his family and HIS wife Bridget (who died in 1892), onto this Bridget who died in 1895. However, James' wife Bridget McCarthy Kelly died in 1892 and was born in 1825.

Meanwhile, the Bridget who died in 1895, was married to a Patrick Kelly, whose actual gravestone I have added to her memorial. As you will notice, Bridget d. 1892 and her husband James are in Section 3, Block 11/12 while Bridget d. 1895 and her husband Patrick are in Section 4, Block 12, which are some distance away. I have been photographing each section of the cemetery so I created a memorial for Bridget McCarthy Kelly (#138054675) before I noticed your error. Can you please correct these incorrect links and photos?

Thank you!

Henry Reis FAG # 74290009
I came across an image of the marker for Henry Reis that I took in April of 2013. This was before his marker was broken, again. Because you uploaded his marker to his memorial page you created, I was wondering if I could send my image so you could delete the image of it broken and replace it with the image of it intact? That way you don't lose credit for the photo. Thanks, Ed.

Good morning Ravenhawk,

My wife and I have been working on our families history a couple of years now. We are curious if your are a descendant of John(Johann) Reis and his wife Margaret Marx Reis?

We would like to add additional information and link them to their children. John Reis is Find A Grave # 74289577 and Margaret Reis is Find A Grave # 74289830. Our Find A Grave member # is 47734996.

We are also in Dane County.

You should check out what I've managed to add so far. There's more to add, just havn't had time to add some of the personal stuff, like when he was mentioned in letters from other USSS.

John A. Waddell
Hello! I believe that John A Waddell (48008777) is a sibling to the Agnes Waddell (47666415) that you have listed in Forest Hill Cemetery. The 1860 US Federal Census lists Agnus as child of Walter and Agnus Waddell, aged 7 months in July of that year. (The stork on the headstone would be fitting for an infant burial.) Thank you for your work!

OK thanks! I'd appreciate that. I figured the bottom line was how old she was, but I couldn't tell what it said.
