You have indicated in your profile that you feel that the purpose of the findagrave site is to record a person's place of burial and not a place to "build a family tree." I can agree with that philosophy. Mary J Morse, #946471163, was buried with her first husband, George W Seymour, #946471161, as indicated on their shared gravestone. but since I cannot locate the place of burial of her second husband, so as to indicate the family link in her memorial, I ask that you indicate his name in her bio. He was Elmer Clifford Agar (1879-1961) and they married in 1917. He survived her 1936 death. Her first marriage was in 1884, with his death being in 1915. Thank you.

James & Elizabeth......don't know how much it really matters but West VA was not a state until 1863 so Jos & Cath really died in Mason, VA. Sometimes you find WVA records listed under Va and sometimes not.

Thank you for the grave marker and plot number.

Thank-you for your thoughtful replies, and for the insight from your Wyoming County historical sources. I appreciate all available perspectives. The German people often named their children several names; many times in males, the first name was a family name passed down and the person referred to by a second (or third) name. It is quite possible that Ulrich Georg "could" have been George Redfoot's father's name; he also had a son named George. John Rathfoot's first child died in early childhood, he was named Georg Christian Rothfuss.
Yes, the Americanization of their names has a couple of interesting stories behind it. Rothfuss from old middle German translates literally as "Red Foot." The etymology of the name related to a person who wore shoes with a reddish hue leather. Also, family history has it that as the first generation children of the immigrants began school (speaking German) their English speaking teachers thought their name was Redfoot. I have learned also, that some families of German immigrants attempted to assimilate into American culture quickly--and Americanized or Anglicized their names.
Thank-you so much for your work; I am honored that you have taken the time in my ancestors and of all people's ancestors' stories and their memories.

Jim and Elizabeth, I believe maybe you have created a duplicate memorial. Marinda Alice Jones Jividen, my memorial # 86958005 was created Mar 19, 210, your memorial # 86958005, created Mar 18, 2012, has a very nice picture of the grave stone, which I would like for you to post to my memorial.

Jim and Elizabeth, thanks so much for not only getting Millie's headstone photo but taking the time to photograph her parents Frank and Emma. That saves me requesting them later! :-) I hadn't gotten that far and now I'm ahead of the search!!
You are appreciated!

|J W||RE: Rabbi Leport|
Wow, thanks for catching that one! Never knew that would be given as a first name!
I just wanted to let you know after I accepted a change on Rabbi that you sent, I need to change it back. His first name indeed is Rabbi. There is a WV birth record online for Rabbi Leport, son of John and Frances Leport.

|Gene Spider||Thaler Family Descendants|
Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into creating memorials for so many of my Thaler family aunts, uncles, and cousins. There is no way I'll ever make it to New York to do research and you saved me the trip by providing so many memorials and adding so much personal information to them. Great work!!! May God bless you and yours.

Found your photo on find a grave and wish to express my appreciation for your work. Would you by any chance have a transcription of the gravestone for Annis Smith in the Maxon Cemetery, Attica, NY dod 1850? Mem'l # 57328295.
Thank you for your time and efforts.

|Ginger Thrush||RE: Thank you for your support|
Firstly, thank you for all your work in photographing Greer Cemetery! I have visited Greer all my life and am very proud of my heritage. Over the years I took many photos, some of the stones are unreadable now. As you can see I am new to Find A Grave.
My sister is Lora Yank and she does family research. I have been working on connecting family members on the site. It is rewarding and Lora and I enjoy talking about it. If one has favorite ancestors, two of mine are John Thomas & Adeline Greer. We grew up with our grandmother, Opal Greer McDermitt, in our home. She often spoke of many of those now buried in Greer Cemetery.
I welcome a dialogue with you but I know you manage many sites. If you ever want to transfer any of those buried in Greer to me I would welcome that. Did you happen to see the "Google Earth" photo of the cemetery I posted?
We would enjoy seeing you at the Greer reunion this year. Thank you again for all your work in preserving the history of Mason Co. & Greer.

Thank you very much for the photo you took for my Aunt Cora. If you're ever in Kirkland Memorial Gardens again, could you please take the other side of that headstone which should read JAMES "HOYT" FERGUSON? It would be most appreciated! ~Sherry Craig Retzler
