Hi, the above is at least one of the photo requests you have in Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery in Springfield, PA. If you would call the cemetery office and post the locations, we volunteers would be happy to fulfill it. Thank you!

You had listed the parents of "Christian" (Heinrich Christian) Rampenthal, as "Christian and Barbary" Rampenthal. His parents were "Johann Friederich and Dorothea Wilhelmine Friedericke Zech. I have the church records from St. Bonafacius Church in Grossfurra, Germany. PLease correct this. Thanks !!!

I need your help to clear something up. In the bio it states Anne Dart 1811-1845 is Alfred's mother. Yet under the listing for parents is Caroline Smith Drew 1819-1888; is the latter perhaps a step parent who was a subsequent wife to Elisha?

The above is my great great grandpa.

It seems you have done a lot of work on this one.
Are you a relative of his?

I have some bio updates for him, or would you like to transfer him to me?

I have submitted some changes and a bio to this memorial. The bio comes from much research in to the family. Most importantly, I changed his place of birth. I am aware that some sources say one thing and some another, however, I found an excerpt from his mother's Bible in which he wrote much biographical information. I changed his birth place to match what he wrote. Thank you for all the work you do for Find A Grave.

I noticed that you posted a photograph to Edmund B. Alexander's memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 66690131) which actually belongs to another Edmund B. Alexander (Find A Grave Memorial# 72202671).

I had posted that same photo to the younger Edmund last July. Could you delete your photo from Find A Grave Memorial# 66690131? If you want to post it to Memorial# 72202671 let me know and I'll delete my photo from that one.

I spent the Summer photographing every marker in Evergreen Cemetery (and Union in Crystal Lake and McHenry County Memorial Park) and am in the process of posting photos to the memorials that had none or creating memorials where none existed. I couldn't help but notice all the work you did at Evergreen a few years ago. I can appreciate all the work you put into it! Thank you for that.

All the best,
Jim Bellert

The information included with my mother's (Alvena Sparks Krupke) listing at Christian Hollow Cemetery is incorrect. The Irene mentioned was one of her sisters, not a child. My folks had 3 children: Harold who died as a child, my living brother and myself. My mother also had a another sister, Roselyn Davis.

Hi Diane,

Thank you for taking a picture of James Coldwell's grave (memorial #46710085). I'm trying (actually, I'm desperately grasping at straws)to find out if James is my g-grandfather's brother. In your research, have you found anyone who might have the cemetery records? It's OK if you don't know, I'm just hoping someone somewhere will have this info.

Thanks for whatever information you can provide.

Grave searching
I have also done a little work searching grave sites for others in NE Iowa and SE Minnesota as well as some in SW Wisconsin. I am searching for information on three (David Fisk and two children, Amanda & Albert) that died of the fever back in 1853 in Stephenson County. Their last known residence was in Silver Creek Township in the 1850 Census. If by chance you happen to be in that area or know someone else that could help, please let me know. My email is Thanks Diane!

William Burbridge Stone, Lena IL
Hello, All...
I am a direct descendant of the William and Elizabeth Burkhart Burbridge listed in the information on that stone's page.

William, who married EIizabeth, passed away in Sangamon Cty, IL in 1825 or 1826. This is why he is not listed on the 1830 census at all, let alone as head of household. Elizabeth is HOH on the 1830 census as further evidence.

Also, William's father Thomas did NOT marry and Underwood. This has been a false bit of data for decades and decades. I don't know where the rumor got started, but it's not correct information.

There is an Underwood/Burbridge marriage, but it is another branch of the family, and if memory serves me right, another generation....

If any questions...
Thank you!

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

David Altenbern
Diane, I am so grateful for the photo of David and Anna Altenbern's tombstone David has been my longest running brick wall ever since I started doing genealogy! I see you have his parents listed; do you know what the source was for them? I have tentatively listed Charles and Caroline Altenbern as his parents in my files, but have been frustrated by not being able to find any records to prove it definitively. I would be thrilled if it could be proved once and for all!

I would be interested in having the memorial page transferred if you wish; I am his great-great-granddaughter, member # #47769220.

Mary C. Ozburn
Hi. I saw a photo of a gravemarker located in the Lena Memorial Burial Park for Mary C. Van Matre Ozburn. Her parents are listed as Morgan and Susanna Van Matre. Do you remember where you found your information regarding her parents?

My g-g-g-grandparents, Thomas Jefferson and Matilda Ann Matthews Van Matre had a daughter, Mary C. (born in Stephenson County, IL in 1838) that I have never been able to locate.

Thank you for you help.
