Ralph Richard Quick, Jr
Mary, Talked to Mrs Floyd Durk in Centralia, MO, who has the records for Mount Zion Church Methodist South Cemetery, who confirmed that Ralph, Jr is buried there with his parents. So I am going to delete my memorial for him from Find-A-Grave (#66561063) but first, I would like for you to remove his picture from the memorial so that I may delete the memorial. Thank you. Andrew

I did a blanket search in U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs of all 90 of this person. He isn't listed. When the weather here warms I'll look at the place that you have listed for him Curious?

I have all that information on her. My question is what is your source of death location?

Hi Mary, I added links for Richard's parents. Richard is my uncle (my dad's brother). I saw that you also created my dad's memorial, thank you for that.

Crowley @ StL Calvary
I have posted a picture for John. He shares a stone with Jeanette, she is not in the online burial records for the cemetery. As you can see I did create a memorial and mark it as a possible cenotaph.

Happy Hunting

RE: James W Compher
Hi Mary -- I was happy to take those photos this morning. It was my first time grabbing a request for a photo in Arlington National Cemetery -- when those requests come in they are usually grabbed quickly by one of several very loyal Findagrave volunteers who specialize in that Cemetery. Also, by coincidence, James Compher's grave in section 17 is only a few hundred yards from my parents grave in section 3, which adjoins section 17, so I know the route pretty well!

I note that you have just crossed the 1000 mark in photos you have added to Findagrave. I also recently crossed that line, and was sad to see that Findagrave stopped providing an index to my contributed photos when I reached 1000. In a forum discussion another volunteer confirmed that 1000 is the number at which the index is discontinued. I went back and deleted a few photos that were surplus, and the index appeared again when I went below 1000. I sent a note to the Findagrave admins last week asking that they keep providing the index up to 10,000 photos contributed (just as they do for memorials that are contributed) rather than cutting it off at 1000. I have not yet received an answer to my request. If you feel the same I hope you will add your voice on this point.

Anyway you are most welcome for the photos! Any time!

- David

Hello Mary,

I am checking with a cousin who lives in the general area of Baskerville to see if she can go to the two cemeteries in question to ascertain which one might have an actual grave stone. I found that the originators sites were created from some kind of written record and were not always accurate with evidence on the ground. Thank you for alerting me.

Trainers in Pekin, Indiana
Thank you for the grave photos for 3 of my Trainer family members buried in Mt. Washington. Can I assume since you live in Oregon that you didn't actually visit the cemetery, but perhaps had these photos already? I have 16 other Trainer family members buried in this cemetery and will request their grave markers in a few days. I really appreciate you help with this family.

Yes, you need to switch the cemetery to Tipton Memorial Cemetery.

RE: Anton Lahmeyer picture
You are very welcome. It is our honor and my pleasure to take part in honoring our veterans like SSGT Lahmeyer this way.

It grows out of my own genealogy pursuits. While looking for some resources outside where I am doing my ancestral works I found in a group of search results a listing for Find A Grave. It sounded like just what I was looking for, and turned out to be so.

I immediately saw this as a way of "paying it forward" for all the help I have been given free of charge mostly. So I signed up right away to be a photographer. I believe in Find A Grave. It provides a wonderful service to help those who have lost loved ones to be able to visit the grave site of their loved one from literally all around the world.

It is also an incredible genealogy tool that is one of the decreasingly few that are still free. I am honored to be able to do this. It is actually a sort of hobby partnership for me and my wife.

I am disabled and cannot drive or get around on my own. In fact, I am literally homebound due to some of my medical issues it is difficult being around people. Well, in fact it can sometimes be deadly. I have severe MCSD. I don't leave the home except to go to the Doctor. This provided me the chance to go out into the real world and do something exciting and helpful. It really gives me a wonderful sense of fulfillment.

After ruining my electric scooter, that medicare will not replace, on my first two outings we had to make some changes. So my wife handles the actual photography and I take care of the admin work and processing of the photos.

We always try to go the extra mile. I know that many just take a snapshot and post it in whatever condition but Karen and I take care about it. We clean them off as best we can so they are free of debris and dirt etc before taking the pics. Then when I process them I do everything I can to bring out the information as clearly as possible. Sometimes they require a great deal of editing and re-editing, but we want to provide something that we are proud to say we did it.

We also always check to see if there is a wife on the stone whether front or back and take that as well. If the spouse does not have a memorial, we create one for them

Vohs daughter
The obit also said she had cared for a sick daughter 2 years before in Red Bird and the daughter Anna listed was at home. Which left me wondering if she was one of the 7 deceased children. Then I saw an entry that the boys has visited their sister Mrs. Wm. Scheel. I found Lizzie Scheel in the same cemetery having died in 1914. After a little playing with the last name spelling, I found her death certificate listed as Lizzie Angeslia Schul (Scheel is the correct spelling)Born in Owensville on Aug 25, 1886 and died in Gasconade Co Aug 25, 1914 but says age 27 y, 11 m, and 19 days so I am thinking the birthdate may be wrong.Parents Albert Vohs and Leana Parsh both from Germany. She died of TB of the lungs.

Also on the 1900 census there is a Louise A. age 14 and Amanda C age 6 (same age listed for Julius).

Also 1900 Census says Albert immigrated in 1878

You might want to check the mother, again, it may be the wrong number.
