Susannah White #106292686
You have Susannah White as the wife of Martin White #50298335. I have been researching Martin White, my 3rd great-grandfather for several years and my grandmother researched the White family for 28 years before me. We only know of one wife, Kiturah Ann Fletcher #50298934. The Stafford cemetery was on Martin White's land before Moses Stafford purchased it in 1855 when the White's left for the Kansas territories. Do you know of any other information than what's on the stone that proves this Susannah was Martin White's wife? Any help will be appreciated. :)

minerva bilyeu
We have a problem on the Bilyeu cemetery. Somehow 2 cemeteries were done, one in shelby and one in christian cty. I am trying to merge all in to shelby and then get the name of the cemetery changed
to christian county (more in the shelby one)
someone already did this lady 86952933 in 2012
you did 110803354 in 2013 but problem is they are in both cemeteries
if you could delete yours it would help a lot
I have taken over 150 pictures and trying to get them in the right place is driving me crazy.
I have the cemetery book and working with find a grave to get this right
thanks for your help

Hannah Phillip McNutt
James McNutt and Hannah Phillip McNutt are my GR-Gr-Gr-Grandparents. They are buried in the Wm. Price Cemetery in Shelby County, Illinois. I know a little bit about James McNutt's lineage, but I can't find Hannah Phillip's parents. Hannah may have been born in Ohio in 1801. Any help?
Thank you. Ron Deckard

Irene Rean Davis Beck #86690992

I see that you have Douglass A. Beck attached as the spouse of Irene. However, though she may have married a Douglas Beck, it wasn't this one. This Doug Beck never married and never had any children. I was wondering how you came to this conclusion? And if you're willing, I'd really appreciate if you could remove the relationship.

Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for all you do for Find A Grave! It makes my work as an amateur so much easier! I appreciate you!

I would be honored if you would permit me to use the photo of Ross Rex's headstone for my tree. I will give you full credit as photographer and reference the memorial to him, as well.

Thank you so much for your kind consideration! Deb

Ray Holt
I have been researching this person for sometime and keep coming up with more questions than answers. You have an Issac Ray Holt who's parents don't match my parents for our Ray Holt. I am sure they are different person, but did you run across this confusion in your research?
Our Ray Holt's parents were Ira W HOLT and Laura Cox/Kimball. Any tibits of info would be useful.. thanks

RE: Kenneth L Snow #78689459
You are absolutely right. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know about my error. I should have caught that myself.

I have corrected the memorial and links for the Kenneth L. Snow who is buried at St. Norbert's Cemetery in Calhoun County, Illinois.

Again, thank you very much for your help.
