Sharum Family
First, I want to say Thanks for the work you do on Find a Grave, and for the many great records you have provided on the Sharum Family. My wife's grandmother is Anna Mae Sharum, daughter of William Sharum, son of John Sharum, son of George Albert Sharum. Believe this would make you a 4th cousin once removed of my wife, Virginia Lee Oathout Allman. Thanks again and if you should want any information, we have , please advise. Fred L Allman at ( )

The Duke/ Rauls/ Manuwal family
You are very welcome. My grandfather worked with Paul at Jessen's back in the day. My mom recognized his name. She remembered her dad talking about him on occasion.

I am happy to say that they did transfer my Great grandparents to me! I am asking them again to transfer my Great Aunts and their husbands. None of them had children, so I am hoping that they will grant my request.

Your rough year and Gloria Iden's memorial
I am so sorry to hear of the enormous problems and trials you have had this past year. That accumulation is just too much in one year. I will add you and your loved ones to our growing prayer list.

I wondered if you would add Gloria Iden at Sparta Cemetery in Kimmell, NOBLE, Indiana to me, unless you were related or close to Gloria. I knew Gloria. I went to school with her children at Cromwell.

I see there are two memorials for Gloria. I created one and you created one. I probably was asleep when I added mine. Sorry for the duplication.

RE: Luther L. Sharum
Althena, did you try to call them to see if they will allow you the info, as a family member? I really don't know what to do about it, now that they are not allowing photos. I've never run into this before.

RE: Obituaries
I sent the obit to your new address. It didn't come back as undeliverable. Hope you got it. If not, I
guess I could add it to her memorial.

James Riley Bunch 1913-1916
Hi, I saw your request for a photo from Silverbrook cemetery. I was not able to find James in the Grave Search or my copy of the cemetery records. I did find his death record at with the date of birth/death that you gave. While he died in Niles, the death record says he was buried at South Whitley, Ind. (Father Freeman Bunch is at Silverbrook; mother Barbara is not.)

Updated family links
Hello Athena,

I just wanted to make you aware of a few links and updated info to one of your memorials. Memorial #80700301 for Elva (Munger) Getz now has a couple photos attached that I found a couple weeks ago. I noticed however that you had the wrong year (typo) for her birth so I thought I'd provide what I have; b. 31 Jul 1854 Jackson, MI - d. 22 Jul 1905 De Kalb, IN. She was buried next to her second husband, Henry Luce #116948600.

And her parent's are now available for connection. Her father is #116923193 and her mother is #116945847. All graves are in the same vicinity at Waterloo Cemetery in Waterloo, IN.

I see you also created the memorial for Elva's first husband Edward, but I could not locate his grave when looking at Waterloo. But it could still be there as I could not check the entire cemetery in the time I had available. I have not yet though even found concrete evidence of his death date or location.

If you'd prefer I manage these changes, feel free to transfer if that's more convenient for you.

Thanks for your help,

George and Grace Barhydt
Hello Athena,

You requested transfers of two memorials that I had for George and Grace Barhydt. I noticed that you had them already made so I deleted mine so they wouldn't be duplicated.
