Hi Troy
I have sent an edit for Emily's birth and death dates as given in her obituary and Michigan death record.

I will also be sending edits to link family members. Once these links are completed you will be able to follow her line back to David Henry and Catherine Moore. David and Catherine were my 3rd great maternal grandparents on my mother's side.

I will email the obit and death information to you for your records.

I would be happy to link him to his parents. I just need the memorial numbers first. Please resubmit. Thanks.

Charles David Fogle
Hello Troy, I can't find were Charles is buried though his wife Sylvia Crawford is in Fairview Cemetery, Harrison Ohio. They were residing in Marion County Ohio on 1920 census. Most family trees have his father as John William Fogle and mother Lydianne Elizabeth Roberts though I don't know where they are buried. Might you know about Charles?

Sorry, this is one of those where as I am in the cemetery I take random photos and post. I do not have any information on him. KEnnetta

RE: Martha Dellenback
I believe, sir, that we have corresponded only once before about this matter. If you would check the photographs on the Auburn Mausoleum site, you would see that I was the the one that took the majority of them. I live in this community. If I am incorrect about the particular matter of the Crowl name, then I stand corrected. Ancestry did buy Find A Grave, but that does not change the rules or its primary purpose. It is not a genealogy site. It is, though, a genealogy tool. And, yes, I realize that these individuals were your 3X great grandparents. It still does not change the fact of how their surname is spelled on their crypts. Wishing you a blessed day!

Hello Troy. Forgive me for not getting back to you sooner. I just did a major sell, move and buy of a home and relocated to Washington State. Give me a little more time to get things in order here and I will most certainly get back to you. Thanks, Ben

RE: Mary Perrine
If you are referring to the Forney marriage, I really don't know much. Mary Corbitt Forney Perrine was my Great Aunt and unfortunately I do not have anyone still alive in that branch of the family that would be able to give me additional information.

RE: Adam and Nellie Forney
No I sure don't, I would also love to have some pictures of this branch of the family. Good Luck and if you find any please let me know.

RE: Ermie Miller Matson Habegger
Can you please send me the source for the obituary?

Added by SLGMSD on Jun 11, 2014 4:28 PM

RE: Ermie Miller Matson Habegger
FYI Troy:

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

That is why her last name is listed as Matson on her memorial page.

Added by SLGMSD on Jun 11, 2014 4:28 PM

Graham and Helen Brott
Those were the dates in the cemetery list, so of course there could have been an error in transcription...if you enter Photo Requests someone will likely get pictures for you so you can determine the correct dates.

Naming Conventions on FindAGrave

If you have not already looked at the FindAGrave FAQs they are very helpful.

Here is the one on Naming conventions - it can get confusing when there is more than one marriage so FindAGrave states the surname should be as found on the tombstone with information regarding other surnames through marriage in the bio section. Hope you find this information helpful.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

Ermie E. Miller Matson
Also, her birth record lists her father as Joseph Miller and you state her father is Alva Monroe Miller.

Which is correct?

Added by SLGMSD on May 09, 2014 9:43 PM

Ermie E. Miller Matson
Find A Grave Memorial# 21286502

You state Alva Monroe Miller is her father, but her name is not listed as a surviving daughter:

....Other survivors include four daughters, Miss Mary Miller, Mrs. Raymond Clark of Waterloo and Mrs. Robert Paton and Mrs. Earl Chapman of Butler...

Added by SLGMSD on May 09, 2014 9:29 PM

Ermie Matson
Her nickname is NOT Miller. Her surname is NOT Habegger.

PLEASE examine your edits carefully before you submit them.

Please LOOK at her stone - her surname IS Matson.

I am not a member of the Hettinger family. I will be pleased to transfer them to you, however, please go to the individual memorials to request the transfer. Much easier for me to have the numbers to hand for transfer. Thank you!

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 98926448
Hello Troy, I've been working on my family for over 10 years now and much of my work now is maintenance and now going back and getting certified death records for as many of my direct blood grand parents as possible. It's proving to be a little expensive, but I've almost got every death record for my direct lines back to my 3rd and 4th great grandparents now. Still missing a few, but have 6 of them in the works right now. Anyway, I'm from Michigan and never lived in Ohio. I know when it comes to research, it's best to always start with the County Court House in the county in question or the Library, in this case, for old obituaries. Just do a query on Google for the phone number of both and that's the best start I can give you. I'm currently working with Ionia Co., Michigan, Grant Co., Indiana & both Mulnomah and Clackamas Counties in Oregon to obtain death certificates. I've round most of these contacts are quite pleasant to work with and are more than willing to help. I did check my records to see if I had Sophia, Thornton and Samuel's obits and I do not have them or I'd be more than happy to send them to you. Let me know if you looking for any other info on family and if I have, I'd be more than happy to share.... Ben

RE: Frederick Dellenback
The Auburn Mausoleum organization bought land in 1916 from the Abel Family. Construction started in 1917 and finished in early 1918. It has never been a part of Roselawn Cemetery. Roselawn has grown up around the mausoleum. People in this area just assumed that it belonged to Roselawn because of its location. The people who created the first internment list in the mid 1980's mistakenly called it Roselawn Mausoleum which has perpetuated the error since that same list is on Genweb. Each of them even has its own address. The building has always been owned and maintained by the Auburn Mausoleum Association, and still is today. They have spent the last six years obtaining historic status and are awaiting a letter from the US Secretary of Interior to confirm its acceptance. All this information comes directly from the current association president whom I have corresponded with. I have lived here 30 years, and did not know any of this until I asked how to get inside for a photo request. You may wish to check out the Auburn Mausoleum Facebook page.

Yes, I read where you are directly related and figured you would know the most about the Crowl name. Have you checked your edit tab? Roselawn Mausoleum is not the correct name for where she is entombed. It is actually called the Auburn Mausoleum. The mausoleum even has a FB page. If you have a picture of the crypt, why don't you post on the memorial?

Added by MFC on Apr 19, 2014 9:16 AM

Martha Dellenback

The Crowl name appears on two different transcription lists for the internments at the Auburn Mausoleum. Apparent implication is that was her maiden name. Obviously not correct.
There is a John Eric Crowl 1953-1958 in a crypt near/next to Martha's.

The one way to solve the mystery is to photograph the crypt. I am going to have some access in the near future. Otherwise the building is closed.

Just making a request for them would be easiest for you.
