Hi Ruth,
I thought it to be easier to send you an invite to view my ancestry files to get the right answers. For the record David Newton Hopkins is a 2nd cousin 6 X remover.

Louie Jansen
Yeah, I am also shocked. Such a kind quiet guy. He was very good at archery, got my ex-husband going on it. He wasn't as good. His dad was a relative to my mother - in - law and I have a picture of Louie and Larry at one year old that she gave me. Almost put it on the memorial, but I know my ex-husband would probably rather I not. FyI for making a connection to his dad - Phonsey (Alphonse) is buried in Mr.Cavalry in Weare, Oceana County. Thank You for doing the memorial. I was hesitating as I am not ready to do a memorial of someone I grew up with.

Lydia Huber Berreth
Hi Ruth Ann

Wanted you to note that the edits that you sent to add parents to Lydia were way off according to the dates. Lydia was born in 1926. The person that you wanted to link as her mother was born in 1922. That would make her a 4 year old mother

The person that you wanted to link as father, Helmuth Huber, was born in 1926. He would have been a 10 year old father.

In her obituary it says her parents were Jacob and Sophia Huber.

Please check your edits before sending. If you don't know the person or they are not family, there is a much greater chance that your edits will be incorrect. The most important thing is to keep the memorials as correct as possible so future family looking for answers will find correct information.

Ken Buttry
Gray family
Hi Ruth Ann, we have corresponded before on the Canady family but I just found you on find-a-grave with a memorial for the Gray family. Among my inherited photo, some we have shared, I have a group that I titled the Krazy Kinder Kids and others. Included are Rena and Carrie Gray, Thelma and Verna Crisel, and Paul Burge. I would like to put names of individuals but need help. Can you help me? Ken

RE: Robert Richard
I apologize for this, however I will say that Mr. Black's 1st memorial was created 6 years BEFORE he passed away. That is against Find A Grave Policy. Perhaps that is why I overlooked it. I'll remove my (the correct) memorial when I get a chance. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. (And for everyone reading this, DO NOT CREATE memorials for people who are still living!)

I just posted Annie Jones and Mark Daniel Jones. They are in plot 7-23 with Ruben and Marie Ricketts.

While walking the cemetery I saw two more Ricketts which I posted.

For your information.

RE: Charlie & Lucy Ricketts
Reuben Ricketts is in section 7 plot 23 if you want to request his photo. He is buried with his wife and several members of her family. It is definitely a Jones family lot.

RE: Reuben Ricketts
I transferred Reuben's parents to you. There is a fellow currently taking photo requests for Highland. His name is Ed and he is only able to fulfill requests for a small time during the year so if you would like photos for the Ricketts family now is the time to make them. I have included plot locations on the memorials I have created so he can find them easily. If you would like a photo of Reuben's headstone let me know and I will look up on line his burial location. The Danville city cemetery records are available on line.

Let me know if you need anything else.
