Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

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.

There are some changes in the research you did that needs to be dealt with. You are the only one who can do this, since the report was done by you.

Please get in touch with me at your earliest convenience.

Dear Billy,

Thank you for clearing up my error, and providing data so I could Link her to her parents, whose memorials I enhanced with data from the Shenandoah County VA GenWeb Tombstone Project. One good turn deserves another you know.

Always, in F-A-G brotherhood,

Beverly Ricketts
I am researching for a friend who is the grandson of Beverly Ricketts and Spicie Brinegar. In your submission on Find a Grave for Beverly you included the Williams/Brinegar names. Can you provide me any information you may have about Spicie Brinegar? We are trying to confirm her parents as Lorenza Dow Brinegar and Louella S. Parsons.

Appreciate the information found on the FindaGrave site. Thanks

Hi Billy, I have updated his memorial and made one for his wife. For Virginia I have no dates and bio. I have tried finding her on the Internet with no results.

Can you please compile some info?

Hi Billy,

I wanted to say "Thank you" for all of the great information that you have posted on the Find A Grave website....regarding the HOLLAR family. My ADAM OLINGER married 1st. ELIZABETH HOLLAR, a daughter of PETTER HALLER, II, in the Shenandoah Co., Virginia area in 1810. I have not located a copy of the marriage bond yet. After she died in the early 1820's he married EVA HOFFMAN/HUFFMAN and lived in Rockingham County, Virginia.

I also have a connection to the BARBER family of Orange Co., North Carolina, in Tennessee and in White County, Arkansas. One JOHN CROCKETT OLINGER married MARIA ELIZA BARBER, the daughter of JAMES BARBER and his first wife (name unknown), in White County, Arkansas in 1854. They moved to Union County, Illinois for a period of time between circa 1860-1873. After JOHN CROCKETT OLINGER died in the mid-1870's, MARIA ELIZA BARBER OLINGER married ABRAHAM KELLER in Crawford Co., Arkansas.

Thanks again for all the great information. You have accomplished a great deal in your years of research.

Elizabeth May Avenell
She is listed on Henry Surber's grave in Jefferson County, Kansas, but she is not this Henry Surber's daughter. There were two Henry Surbers, both born about the same time, and both with wives named Mary. This Henry Surber was a preacher, and his wife's maiden name was Mary Connor--needless to say, this has caused much confusion down over the years!! The death date and gravesite of the other Henry Surber and his wife Mary Wimmer remains unknow,

Haller Family Cemetery

You and I have some Haller ancestors in common. I have tried to locate the Haller Family Cemetery but failed. I presume it is somewhere off Route 42 west of Woodstock. You have clearly been there, judging from the photos you have posted. Can you give me specific directions to the cemetery?
