You could go to the top of the memorial to the edit tab, click on Suggest A Correction... and submit the information that way. Happy to add it to the bio.

RE: John Chilton of Currioman
Thank you for the history on John Chilton's grave. My son has a History Masters and will especially appreciate the detail.

Your ancestor's grave is near my father-in-law's home on the Northern Neck of VA. It is a beautiful grave as evidenced by the photo. It is also on the property of land deeded to a lumber company. My family has been watching them clear the land to be sure that they don't harm the gravesite. My son notified a local historical society. The picture was taken, I am happy to report, after they cleared the land so they appear to be respecting the gravesite.

While I love history and the documentation of gravesites, I do not have any particular need to manage sites that I discover when they are not a relation. If you would like to manage your ancestor's grave, I am happy to turn it over to you. I have enjoyed the beautiful photo enough :-)

Find A Grave Memorial# 78554528
I Came by this site of James Birney III1817--1888 with information of his wife Amanda S. Moulton 1819-1886 Married Jun 01-1841 Conn.
Children: James G. IV; Sophia H.; Arthur M.
- Residences:
... 1866-83, 1005 Tenth, cor. Grant, Bay City
... 1884-?, boarded at Fraser House (hotel).Judge Birney spent most of his youthful years from 1819 to 1933, on his father's plantation near Madison City, Alabama. This was followed by a short stay in Kentucky before settling in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1835. On May 8, 1888, James died. He was buried at the cemetery he founded, Pine Ridge, along side his wife, Amanda who proceeded him in 1886. If this is your family I have a lot of information if you want it . The picture of James on his site I have a picture that looks better . I just came by this & saw you have the site so if you want more information I can send it to you if you like . Rick

RE: George D. Seaman
I did see a few Seamans family members I recognized in doing my research. It's sad when you find out not so nice things about your ancestors. I was interested in my g g grandfather William Lewis Seamans and his wife Martha J Tunnell Seamans Martin. I have yet to find any listing for them for a final resting place. I was only interested in George because he is his brother and though someone may have records of what happened to the location of William and Martha. That's great that volunteers are taking care of the cemetery. I just recently started doing my grandmothers family tree. Her mother Verona Seamans died when she was very young so she didn't have much family info herself. I was hoping for some family photos of the family in Idaho too. Thanks for your help.

William Lewis Seaman
I'm pretty sure George Delois Seaman is William Lewis/Louis Seamans brother because William named one of his sons Dennison Delois Seamans.

George Delois Seaman
I have William Lewis Seaman listed as his brother,
I have yet to find William Lewis Seaman or
his wife Martha J Tunnel Seaman Martin.
William is my great great grandfather.
His son William Louis Seaman was my great grandfather
He was my grandmother Dorothy Seaman Nixon's father.
Do you have any documents that list William Lewis Seaman In this family?
He was born around 1832, between George's sisters Merrietta and Eliza Jane.

Thank you

Hi Ed, I saw a comment you made about someone born in 1909 would not have served in Vietnam. I am a Vietnam Veteran and part of a team working on a book about the women who served in Vietnam that were not nurses. The first WAC sent to Vietnam was born in 1908. She was Lt Col Anne Marie Doering and she served from March 1943 to April 1967 and was stationed at Saigon, Vietnam working in the Intelligence Division of MACV Headquarters 1962-1963. I have created a Virtual Cemetery for those women who served in Vietnam that have passed and among them are 18 ladies, including Lt Col Doering, born between 1908 and 1921 that served during WWII, Korea and were in Vietnam. All outstanding ladies. Just some history for you information. Thanks for remembering our Veterans. Cricket

Ernest was my Great Uncle. Was wondering where you found the info for your story. I have been researching my family for a while now and haven't run across that info. Have the death certificate and the news clipping. There is no grave marker. I'm hoping to place one soon. Thanks, Mary Knoerl

G'day Ed,
Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to find my grandmothers grave and upload a picture. I am adopted and I have had so much trouble finding any of my family in australia until I discovered my grandfather was a american..all the dots started to connect. I have been unable to find any of his family at all but I did find a marriage certificate to Charlotte. I know I will never find a picture of either of them and I almost gave up completely until I got the email thank you my friend. X

RE: Edward Uhrich
Hi Ed,
I'm having trouble finding Edward. Is he on F-A-G or on your website? I've looked in both places and cant seem to find him(Duh). Could you please let me know where he is?
I have a hard time understanding why someone would walk through a cemetery and destroy something so deliberately. Actually, I guess that it doesn't surprise me half so much as meeting a truly unselfish person like you, who goes SOOOOO far out of his way to take loving care of so many peoples' graves, and then to investigate their genealogy. WOW! It was truly my pleasure to meet you in person today and I am happy to have had the privilege to do your card for you.
