Transfer Mayer @ Highland Park
Please transfer both Frank #94487923 and Anna #94487920 Mayer, burred at Highland hills cemetery. I am their Great-grand son. My grandmother has Lula was one of their 5 daughters, Lula's daughter Donna is my mother. I've been doing genealogy since "Roots" in 1979.

I have a hand written letter by my second cousin George Angel who sent it me in 1982. His mom was Stella, another daughter. He has explained surname changes my mother knew them at Meyer.
Thank you for setting this site up.

RE: dupes
That would be easier to copy the uploaded one but it won'e be the quality of a first generation photo. I use an editing program to reduce the photos retaining the best quality and each copy of a copy after that is degraded to a degree. I will usually get to it in about a week though. I believe the one in question has been corrected and I will be removing mines. BTW the transcribers are really doing a job of screwing up memorials. I have seen dates such as 11925 from submitted edits. And one has six duplicate of the same. And the sad part is if that photo is attached to other memorials once deleted it will remove all the photos. that hurts on headstones with multi family members. Sooner or later the beta upload kinks will be worked out.

duplicate memorials
I was contacted by a person about a duplicate memorial of yours and mines created via the beta upload. That is proven to be a headache in a lot of cases. A lot of members are not using the drop down and assigning the photo to the right one resulting in dups. So a new memorial with a photo is created and I have found so many. Since yours is the first Ignore any requests by them. In due time when I can find the original photo out of 100,000 I will upload it and then remove mines.

Find A Grave Transfer: Frank Dohnal
Thank you very much for transferring my great-grandfather's memorial to me. I really appreciate it, and this will make it significantly easier for me to write an appropriate Bio, since it usually takes me several iterations before I am satisfied, and that is even before I get comments from other relatives.

Erie McQueen Burton
I am interested in your information for Erie McQueen Burton. I have an Erie McQueen married to Daniel Burton in my tree. Her parents are Daniel McQueen and Mary "May" Rutschow. I am looking for Erie McQueen who married Anthony Cromer Burton, I have a date of birth 21 Apr 1897, Toledo, Ohio. I got this date from the SS Application and Claims Index. Just looking to confirm information, to see if this is the same person. From the SS Application there is Claim date in 1957 but no date of death. SS Death Index gives dates of 11 Oct 1897 - Sep 1975. It would be hard to image 2 Erie McQueens, but anything is possible.

If this is Erie McQueen Burton from my tree, she is the daughter of the half-sister of my grandfather.
Thank you for any help you give me.

RE: Lewis Ford Brookston Cemetery
Down the ancestral line I am related to him. He's pretty way back though and it's due to marriage. I have not exactly gotten it all written down just yet. My daughter does genealogy for 4h so we are trying to get as much information as we can and go as far back as we can and then start looking into the details when we have time to go do more research and get the documents that we actually need. I do however have a lot of resources that have told me a lot about the Ford family so far.

Green Graves
Thanks for your work in adding Green Graves, Highland Park Cemetery.

Someone went to look for the grave but couldn't find it. Was his name simply added from records at the cemetery? I'm thinking his grave is overgrown and could not be located.
