Susie & Buzzy Soard
I stumbled upon one of your Public Messages where you indicated interest in the Soard family. Over 50 years ago I dated Susie Soard from Kansas City, MO. I have a photo somewhere of Susie, brother Buzzy, and me. Did you have family in KCMO?

Sharon Palmer memorials
Hello. Thank you for empting to manage Sharon's memorials. I'm sure it is a huge undertaking! My question is a memorial she has of my relative, Nancy Hamilton #67083867. She has a copy of a death certificate on the memorial. I am trying to contact someone who she would have left her documentation with to see if they have any additional information on the Belcher/Hamilton side of the family. Would you happen to know a contact person? Please let me know. Again, thanks for keeping her info current; as I'm sure she is thrilled to know :)

Your story on your Uncle's gravesite
I do not have any idea what you do for a living or just pleasure, but if you are not a published author, someone has been missing the boat. The story was so well-written that it brought tears to my eyes. I had a distant cousin whose mother had
2 children by a Bullock, then left them when they were quite young. I only found out today that her daughter had married a "Crump" when the burial site finally popped up on I had been searching for several years. I had located the son in Washington, but just found Daisy today. Haven't even determined who she married. i will get back to that now. God bless you. Incidentally, a lot of my father's people lived in Harrison county.

If you would like to hear what I have found, I would excited to share this info with any of his family. I don't think it would be kind to post this info where everybody would be able to view. Joe

Dr William Franklin Benefiel
Sorry to hear about the passing of your friend. It is great that you are taking over her memorials for her. Sorry I didn't get to her sooner. I was wondering about the picture she posted on his memorial.(Find A Grave Memorial# 47922540). I am wanting to copy the picture and use it for a column that I write for. Called Beneath our Illinois Roots. I found some interesting facts about this person and the picture would be just the right touch to finish. If there is a family person that you might know of that I can contact for permission, I am more that willing to try. Just email me to my personal email address, and I will contact them. Thank you for your time. Joe

I just read where Sharon Palmer passed away, do you know if her many memorials have been transfered to another Find A Grave member or did they transfer back to Find A Grave.
I left a e-mail asking for transfer for my 4th gr grandfather William McFarland# 21375021 but I am afraid it went to Sharon's e-mail

If you are going to continue with her memorial's would you please let me know? Sharon had linked four of William's children but there are 10 more of which I have all the records.

You can send me a private e-mail @ or post a message.

Thanking you in advance

Ella Viola Noland Myers memorial #73833510
I was so sad to see that Sharon Benefiel Palmer had passed away. If you are caring for her memorials, she had duplicated her self on creating a memorial for Ella Viola Noland Myers. You need to delete Memorial #73833510 (duplicate memorials create a lot of headaches for searchers).
Thanks and sorry for your loss,
