Marie Zuercher ( Memorial# 75939032)
Dear Ms. Wright, I just wanted to thank you for taking and posting a photo of my great-great aunt's grave, and for adding the sweet message, "Rest in peace, little one." It was so unbelievably kind and sweet! Sadly, I did not even know that little Marie Zuercher even existed until I talked to a great uncle last month to find out some more info to help me with my genealogy research! And he didn't even know much about her either, including whether she was born in Switzerland or the U.S. But, thanks to you and Find a Grave, I finally found her today!! And I am so ecstatic that this sweet little soul will not be forgotten anymore, since I have now recorded her in my family tree!! Thank you again for taking this picture and allowing me to use it in my tree!! I can't wait to share her information with my family! Thank you so much for volunteering for Find A Grave, and allowing people like me to find our long-lost loved ones!! Your acts of kindness and beauty are so greatly appreciated. Much love & peace, Erin :)

Pending edits...
A lot of contributors are not aware of edits being sent to them that appear on the edit tab of their bio page. I sent you one that is still pending and thought you might not be aware of it.
A number will appear in the edit tab if there is anything waiting your action. The edits will only hold there for 21 days, and then automatically be accepted through Find A Grave. I thought you might want to review them and accept or decline after review, instead of your memorials being changed without your being aware of it.
Emails are not sent by Find A Grave when these edits are suggested, so other than looking at your edit tab, you won't get notice of them.
You can 1) accept and the memorial will update automatically; 2) decline and a box will pop up for a message that will go to the person who suggested the edit; or 3) ignore - but that is just temporary for the 21 days, then it will be accepted.
Thanks for your work..

RE: Murphey Cem.
Hello Melva,

Unfortunately I don't remember exactly where it is.
In 1989 I went to Hephzibah to look for the cemetery. I stopped at the Fire Station to ask if anyone there knew the location. None of the fireman had ever heard of the Murphey cemetery. As I was leaving an elderly man walked in and he knew the location and directed me to the site.

Here's what I remember:
It was not very far from the fire station. My memory says it was 1 to 2 miles but that may be off. It was on a two lane paved road, beside the road was a cultivated field. Beyond the field was a stand of trees abut 100 to 200 yards off the road. There was an open gate with a two rut dirt path that allowed me to drive around the side of the field and up to the stand of trees. The cemetery was heavily overgrown, markers were eroded and some were broken. Some of the graves only had footstones. Also, there were several sink holes indicating burials that were unmarked.

Wish I could be of more help and I regret that I did not write down the location at the time. Please let me know if you have any luck finding the location and if so, what you find there 25 years after my visit.

FYI, I am a descendent of Edmund Murphey and will be happy to exchange family information if you would want.

Do you have the location for Murphey cemetery in Richmond county GA. I was going to try to fill a couple of your request for photos.

RE: Alden & Francis Pettengill
Yes, you are welcome to use the grave stone photos for you family tree. I am curious as to your connection to this family. I just figured out that Francis Pettengill's wife, Sadie Etta Hart, is a cousin of mine. Sadie has now been linked to her parents and siblings. Best of luck in your research!
