Hi Billy,
Would you please let me know where you were able to find Jeremiah's mother's maiden name being Beall. From the information I have found it has only listed her by her first name of Margaret.
I would appreciate any help you can give me!!
Thank you.

Thank you for the obituary; I have added it to the memorial. Do you know if the spelling of the surname is correct in the obituary? It is Musgrove on the tombstone. Also, I would be happy to transfer if you are related.

Hi Billy,

I will be happy to take a pic of his wife. Would you please put a request in for the picture, and I will fulfill it? I like to keep tabs on the pictures from each cemetery that I have taken.

RE: Marnie V. Griffith Grave Stone
Hi there,

In the caption section of the photo I added a note that Ruth Calvert is an unmarked burial. I walk the cemetery with my cellphone and the online interment record to insure that I am in the right spot.

Marnie Griffith was the only marked burial in the lot.

Online records can be found here:

If you search by Section N, Lot 071 you will see that Marnie Griffith is also interred in that lot. Sorry there was no stone for Ruth.

Have a wonderful evening!

Calvert photo request Rock Creek Cemetery DC

Rock Creek's interment records are online and can be found here:

It would appear that she is the only Calvert in the lot.

Her husband's mother is interred in Methodist Protestant Cemetery, Alexandria, Virginia. Find A Grave Memorial# 120879234. I am not aware of any online resources for that cemetery, so you will need to call them with an inquiry if you are so inclined.

Perhaps her husband is interred there too?

Hope this is helpful!

RE: Reitz Family
You're welcome, it was a pleasure. Should I take the picture down? The one posted is nicer. I forgot my mittens and shot it on auto.

I'll find George too!

Thomas Joseph Didawick Duplicates
Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia,Rockingham Va,Hardy WV and surrounding area.

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.
E49 Created above Statement

If anyone gets Find A Grave to transfer memorials cared for by ProjectMgr Just a heads up I dont delete any connected to ProjectMgr.I worked hard to replace all the memorials that had been deleted.Find A Grave choice to re-upload the Old Deleted memorials And we work free on this site.So if anyone wants our memorials Have Find A Grave Merge them or if you dont have a problem merging then more power to you.

I do want to thank anyone that has helped with my duplicants created after the major upload of old memorials formerly deleted.I really appreciate the help.

You list Col. Jacob as her son. Col. Jacob's mother was Jacob the Elder's first wife Ann Maria. This is based on the fact that George Rinker, brother of Col. Jacob was younger and his mother was Ann Maria. I hope to find George's find a grave burial and link it to his father.
