Amos R. Cass Find A Grave Memorial# 102489419
Amos had a wandering birth date, so I suspect the 1881 year-of-birth is off quite a bit.

Ruth Dowdy-McArthur
Elton Earl Sirls Memorial at Antioch
Thanks for the additional information on Elton Earl Sirls. This memorial was created some time ago by a volunteer with, who recorded the scant information available to her on death records. All of the memorials she had created from the Antioch Christian Church Cemetery were transferred to me and I'm left with many for which I have no information to add, this being one of those. If there is anything else you can tell me about him that would be good to add, please just let me know.

If you might know who his parents are, and I can locate where they are buried and where memorials exist, I can link Elton to the memorials for his parents. There are many from my family and those related to it who are also buried at this same church and I've been able to add a great deal of information to those memorials, including family links, which I think are so important.

The photos you added to the Logan memorials, are quite a lovely touch. I've never seen them. I've also never seen a photo of Lola's mother, who was a sister to my G grandfather David. Thanks, I have enjoyed seeing them. Joan 47336229

Callan Pine Grove Lynn Ma
You have made duplicate memorials for Callan's in Pine Grove Cemetery. The original ones were made in 2009. You need to contact the original person to have it transferred to you, then you can add all the information you want. You cannot just duplicate it to add your own information. Please read "Help with Find A Grave" There is a photo request for one of the duplicates.

Memorial Esq.Thompson Bacon

This memorial is a duplicate for one that already exists for Thompson Bacon. According to birth and death dates and gravestone inscription it is the same person. The historical society's gravestone survey has only one Thompson Bacon listed in this cemetery, Thompson Bacon, Esq. - Esq. being a courtesy title, not a first name. You might wish to add your extra information for this person to the previously existing memorial.
