|Laura||163323064 Herbert Keith|
I was wondering if you could transfer Herbert Keith's listing to me? He was my grandfather's brother, and I'd like to add him to my family's Find A Grave listings.
This is his brother (my grandfather): http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=78623089
This is his father - http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=116293960

Thanks for the reply Donald! How cool that you knew Harold and Janet! I wonder if you would mind my private messaging you with some family history questions about Harold's parents?

I have Vernal with headstone and death dates with his second wife in Calvary Cemetery, Massena. Your memorial has no dates. He died before # 2. Maybe she kept him with her? Let me know what you think and what to do. If you transfer your memorial to Calvary, I can add picture?

|Jane Sherman||Janet Weller Dunn memorial|
Hi Donald. Recently I suggested that the McClain name be added to Janet's memorial title, but it was declined. My reasoning for suggesting "Janet Weller McClain Dunn" was to make it easier for McClain family members to see that she has a memorial. In posterity, they may not know that she married my cousin Harold Dunn after Ora McClain died. Please reconsider. Thanks! Appreciate all that you do!

If u go to the memoral - you will see I have added the tombstone photos which CLEARLY show LAFLUER - that is why I have asked you to change the spelling on this particular family! thanks! Donna

|lulu||RE: Loren LaFluer|
I agree David - this is my hubbys family and we are quite knowledgeable about it. What we have been told by the LaFLUER family, is, that once
leaving Canada, some were angry and changed the spelling (it appears LaFleur is one of the most popular names in French Canada)
Another Uncle's wife, didn't seem to like the connection to the Lafleurs, so she changed the name to LaFluer too!
What a mess!! As I am a direct family member, I know to seek them out under various spellings. So don't worry about the name changes, I prefer to use what the tombstone says, unless I have true knowledge that they used another spelling.
I DO wish Findagrave would set up some kind of program that would seek the various spellings (ie with and without the space!!)
Added by lulu on Sep 21, 2016 8:49 AM
OK - I see why the problem - LAFLUER is the right spelling - see his tombstone photo - parents ARE Joseph & Elizabeth - please link & I will ask the other party to delete his memorial as it is newer..
father Joseph #168937627
mtr Elizabeth # 168937722
But please link yours to his parents ( I have records to confirm this) Donna

|Mark Maxwell||RE: Eleanor Hurley #115734072|
The date that I reported she started was believed to be 1929. This was caused by the museum not having a full set of newspapers that reported the teaching staff of the EHC school system. 1919 to mid-1928 is still missing. We found a list from a second local paper in 1923 that included her. Therefore, the 1929 from my original bio should be changed to 1923. I have often wondered how & when she came from her home in Norwood to EHC. At least now the "when" is answered. My family spent a week at her house in 1958, met her sister Josie and family, and toured the St.Lawrence Seaway locks and dams.
When the former high school/grade school was demolished, I had the chance to rescue various things for the museum. The first thing I got was a large bookshelf from her former 6th grade room. She had my father bring it from her first room in School #1. It now holds many school trophies and a set of high school yearbooks in the center of the museum. For me and a few others she still lives on in our memories. Thank you again for her memorial.

|Mark Maxwell||Eleanor Hurley #115734072|
We recently found some old newspapers at the museum and learned in a 09NOV1923 issue of "The NEWS" that Miss Hurley was listed as a grade school teacher. Given her birth date and her education education in a Normal School (usually 2 years) and prior teaching experience, I would suspect that this would be her first year in EHC. Can you please correct the my previous information I sent you. Thank you again for making her entry. I am still looking through my family photos for a nicer one than in the school classroom photos in the 1960 EHCGS yearbook.

|Cheryl Ayres||Re: Ayres/Ayers spellings|
If you look at the obituary one daughter Helen Ayres used the Ayres spelling, his grandfather's Hiram senior used the Ayres spelling while others use the Ayers spelling. The problem some documents for same person will have both spellings on different documents, they are from the same family, I know I have had to change my driver license because they used the most Ayers when we spell ours Ayres, I make a point now of spelling my name to others so they get it right. In the early day, alot of the time they used to spell it like it sounded, this could be the case of the engraver, regardless I have changed it like what the gravestone reads.

I received a message that my information was declined for Josephine Creighton #137692610. However, if you go to her father's site James Creighton #53858906, Josephine is listed as a daughter. Perhaps I put in incorrect numbers but I feel her mother is Catherine Creighton #53858916 and father is James Creighton. Please advise.

|Walt Blackmer||Josephine Wells Calnon|
Re: Find A Grave #135401059. Is the data on the memorial sourced or is it from an obituary? I am researching these same families and can not find much. For instance, when I looked for Josephine with Charles and Anna, I went to the 1900 Census and found Effie b. 1885 and she married Wm Duffus in 1814. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
