Heatons Point Cemetery photo
Hello, I am wondering if you would be kind enough to attach the photo you have for Elizabeth Gilham to also James Gilham and Phebe Gilham memorials who are mentioned on her headstone. Thanks so much.

Long Grove Cemetery
Is there a particular reason you chose to duplicate multiple memorials in Long Grove Cemetery, rather than ask for the original memorials to be transferred to you?

That is generally considered taboo in the Findagrave community. Many of us donate countless hours researching families who aren't even ours, just so others can find them. When memorials are duplicated without request of transfer it feels like our time and energy was stolen. It is rather rude.

I have no qualms transferring memorials I have created during my research, if one is to ask considerately. That is, afterall, the reason I spend so much time researching. But, I find it hard to believe that you went to that online cemetery and did not see the many memorials I already put up. You duplicated so many, you have to have not cared.

So Rude.

Okay. That makes since now. Her 2nd husband Ed would've been my Great-Grandpa's brother. Thank your for replying back so quickly.

Hi Damien -

No problem, thanks for inputting the memorial. Paul III was my nephew.

In addition to the 2 Fouts stones you requested, there was an Averill Fouts buried in the same plot as them. I've added a memorial and photo for that person.

No, I am not related to the Whislers. I was just out taking photos of the cemetery.

RE: Hello
There is also a James Dowling tombstone in the same cemetery. I guess this would be the husband of Mary.

Hi, Damien.

Yep, I told you -- I NEVER give up. It is the upside of OCD. :-)

Anyway, I took a picture of his wife's marker, too, and I will be adding that. I was too tired out last night to do anything extra. It was a GREAT day -- cold (new record low high for the day) and raining all day, and I took in three cemeteries and got a tremendous amount done. I love that kind of weather.

The Madden's in that cemetery are nowhere near each other -- there is no family plot. That would have made it easier, I guess. But it would not have been as interesting.

You take care, now.

RE: William Madden
Hi, Damien.

I found Nellie, when they said she was not there. I have been told Franklin is not there. Do you have any information which might assist in this search? Did he go by "Frank"? (There is one listed for that cemetery ...)

You are welcome about William. I found him nowhere near where they said he was. It is indeed an interesting cemetery staff to resource.

Cheers, though! I love mysteries!

Hi Damien, I'm a 3rd-cousin, once-removed to Pat Madden-King (through her and my SCHRAMM connection)... May I presume that you are one of her 2nd cousins (through Daniel Budd?).

You're welcome, Damien. I am still checking into it. I was out at Dry Creek today, and they are not there. Two down.

RE: Madden
You are welcome, but please check again. I downloaded two pictures, and the closeup is the bottom one. The internet connection has been giving me fits tonight. It took 41 minutes to get this one memorial done. So I think perhaps you didn't see the whole effect.

I also added the same photo, the top one, to her husband's memorial, #40988959. For Ralph, I emailed the manager of his memorial and asked him to correct the dates of birth and death on Ralph's memorial.

I did not yet find William Madden. The instructions which the cemetery staff give for that particular part of the cemetery generally require four trips there to find a grave. Today was only the first trip. They do not have a map, and they have a quixotically laid-out plot system.

The cemetery staff deny that Franklin Madden and Nellie Madden are buried in their grounds. I have not given up looking for them yet. I asked at the Star Cemetery this afternoon, and I will be checking the other cemeteries with online lists of names in this county.

In addition, if you call up a list of all the Maddens buried in the Meridian Cemetery, you may notice that there is also listed a Frank Madden with slightly different dates. This particular problem is widespread amongst the memorials from this cemetery. Also, the cemetery staff would not tell me if there was another individual there with a slightly different name and slightly different dates from the ones I asked about.

Do you have independent information which indicates that Frank or Franklin and Nellie are buried in the Meridian Cemetery? If so, could you please let me know what changes might be relevant to report to the cemetery staff and get them to look again?

Thanks! I never give up this early, so please let me know if you have more info.

Donaldson photos
Hello Damien,

Thank you so much for taking and posting the grave photos of my ancestors, Rev. Asa Donaldson and wife Delia Allen Donaldson. I am so grateful! Asa and Delia were an important part of my family history. Asa also played an important role in the history of the American Presbyterian Church.

Thanks again,

Gary (GWC)
