RE: Woodford H. Silver
The book just says John Silver with the October death date I told you about. Was he a Mason or belong to a Masonic chapter somewhere? Sometimes a death records will say that. The John Silver I was speaking about is in the Masonic section at Valhalla. No personal marker just this large monument.

But if I find a marker that says your name, it was just an entry error. I am working with the burial books. mistakes happen. I just want to look, just in case.

RE: Woodford H. Silver
Ok then. I will still look and see if that is just what they spelled in the book. The month is the same, as well as the year. We will see when I get there.

Yes, but that is where all the changes I've sent to you are ending up.

RE: Afgin to Afcin
Thanks for making the change. When I look at the edit queue on my profile page (one of the tabs near the upper right corner), I can see the edits queued for me and edits I've requested. In the last day or so I've added transcriptions for a few of your memorials, and a couple dates of death where I converted the Hebrew yahrzeit from the stone.

This new edit system was switched on for everyone starting on Dec 10, but there was no general notification that I was aware of. Also now there is no email to the manager getting the edit request, but there is an ack automatically sent to the "suggester" when the edit is accepted or rejected by the manager.

I think this is flawed -- there should at least be one email per day or week suggesting that the manager look at their edit tab if they have corrections waiting. Other than that, it's easy to look over the edits, decide if you want to accept them all, or change to "ignore" the ones you want to come back to later, or "reject" the bogus ones. One click and you're done.

Best regards,

RE: Hannah Skelton
I understand that they are difficult to read at times. I only included the information to show that it was the same person. I appreciate very much the photos that you have added and what you are doing. Since we are working in the same area I hope to continue working together to make the memorials the best that we can possibly make them. Denise.

Julius Rosenberg - Minnie Horne
Hello! I found my relatives Julius Rosenberg and Minnie (Horne) Rosenberg on this site and it says you posted the record. I'm searching for information on this line and was wondering if you are related to them as well.

Thanks!

Prentis Harrison Crawford
I noticed you have a memorial for Prentis Crawford who is buried at Trinity Church Cemetery, in Holderness. He was married also to a Melissa (Sawyer) Piper. Was Prentis one of your ancestors, and do you have any idea where Melissa is buried?

Oscar Silver
Hey salemsilver,

The only info I could find on Oscar Silver is he died in Arizona of disease from the Civil War on August 29, 1863. There is a picture of his stone on another site but it has fallen over so you can't read anything except the name. It looks like it says Oscar H. Silver but I can't be sure.

Thanks,
Tyler

Robert Silver
I added the middle name. Will reserve changing date of birth as there are two conflicting public records. Have requested a photo of the gravestone so we will see which record is correct--SSDI or divorce record.

Thank you for letting me know Jesse's age and cause of death. I had entered the info from the 1914 headstone transcriptions by Brainerd, and have made a correction there as well.

Sure - here's the link:

RE: Sugarman graves
I understand your reasoning. Here's an example illustrating why I prefer ballpark year over no year:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=117305152

This is his father. The children are nicely ordered by age, but Harry is out of order - he's the youngest, but listed in the order as if he were the oldest.

For Harry, there's a document with his year of birth listed as 1885. However, the subtraction indicates 1884, and that's why I chose 1884 in my request. If you can put 1885, I'd be happy too - I can point to the document if you'd like.

Thanks

Igor

RE: Xzena Robbins
Since sending that, I've talked with the curator of the Shaker Museum about this grave marker. It is believed that it was actually the grave of Eugene Robbins who was called Hene. This is not conclusive. Also, this grave is in Row 3 which was supposed to be all sisters. I don't know if it will ever be determined exactly. It's a shame that a person lives for 76 years and we have virtually no information on them.

Hello,
It has come to my attention that permission is required for photo use from findagrave. I am in the process of going through my ancestry.com tree and trying to obtain that permission for photos I have either downloaded myself from findagrave or copied from someone else on ancestry that were taken from findagrave. I seem to have one of yours: Elizabeth Crouch from the Shaker Burial Ground in Harvard, NY.
Would it be alright with you for this photo to remain in my ancestry tree? I have now added credit for the photo, but will remove the whole thing if you wish.
Thank you for your consideration!
