William Clark
Hi Mike,
Thanks for letting me know that I had two memorials for William Clark. I have deleted one.

Take care

Nellie's a Morse. I just added her late yesterday and was just going back in now to add her last name, after confirming it via census and birth/death records. How you found it in the less than 12 hours that it was online is pretty funny.

Hi Mike,

I think it was a glitch too. I started to add Josephine Poppe and it just added Josephine. I then thought I edited the memorial to finish the info again, but it looks like it originally added "Josephine" twice. It really confused me.

The one has been deleted. How did you ever see this happen and let me know just moments after it all happened?

I see your request for a photo on findagrave for Great Valley Presbyterian Cemetery. I would be happy to look for you. Would you please call the cemetery office to find out the section and lot numbers for your request? And please also confirm there is actually a marker. Sections may not be clearly marked, maybe directions will be better??

You sent me an edit on her, but I don't understand why. She was never married and retained her maiden name until her death.

I guess you have not heard of the Wilhemina sextuplets. Ha, me neither.
Thanks for the heads up, must have been one of those darn glitches.

RE: Emilie Maxton
You can contact findagrave and give them the url. They will transfer it to your care. You might want to look at other entries Bill made and ask for them as well.

I have done this in the past, and the file managers are more than happy to give them to a live person.

If you want to take all of his, they'll do that as well.

Sorry to hear about a fellow graver going on the otherside of the searches. Like I said, I think I worked with Bill before.

Mike: there is a duplicate of this burial. I'm going to decline your addition, and add my tombstone image to the one above. I think I've worked with Bill Corl before (the owner of the other one) so you should collaborate with him.

Glad you caught that and have no idea how that happened as I was working on something way different. What a hoot! Sylvia Trotter

RE: Gauthier

Hi Mike,

My dad Roger Chartrand said his sister my aunt Simone Chartrand and her husband Faldora Gauthier had 6 children Sylvain, Serge, Denis, Johanne, Ginette and RitaI thought my cousin Ginette so their last or maiden names should be Gauthier.

If you have other information or documentation, please let me know.

Lydia Dolby Death Certificate
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania did not start issuing Death Certificates until 1906. Since she died in 1903, that would mean we'd need to look at the County level.

Go to the above site, and search in the D's. You'll see her and a couple other Dolby's listed.

"This file contains a portion of the information stored in the "Register of Deaths for Chester County," volumes 1-3 (1893-1907), located at the Chester County Archives in the Government Services Building, 601 Westtown Road, West Chester PA 19382. The complete set of 26 files represents about seven hundred hours of labor by West Chester University History students and their professor."

Dr. Jim Jones is a friend and haunter of Chester County Historical Society. He is a Professor of History at West Chester University. Very nice and personable guy.

No name memorial
Thanks for the info. I am adding several memorials using the quick submit and I have been having some problems with the feature. I have to submit the info a couple of times for the memorial to show up and it will leave another partial memorial like the one you discovered. I am in the middle of this work and I have found and deleted a couple like this one. Thanks again. Cathy

Thanks for the alert on the memorial at Riverside. Not sure how this is happening. I have been getting computer freezes lately, especially browser freezes.
Anyway, thanks

Are you monitoring all my new memorials for this cemetery? I took 1600 photos on my visit and have nearly 200 left to catalog. When I'm finished entering all, I had planned to review and edit them as needed. If you are doing this, then it won't be necessary? Please let me know - Diane

Oaklawn cemetery memorials
Hi Mike,

Thanks for pointing out the memorials in question. I didn't know they even existed---I can only guess that something went wrong when I uploaded a spreadsheet---I've been trying to add memorials for all burials in oaklawn and have added multiple spreadsheets over the last six months or so. I will work on getting the "unknown" memorials deleted as they certainly serve no purpose.
Thanks again for bringing this to my attention.
