Hello Jerry,
My husband was a long time friend and admirer of Jack. I have transferred his memorial to you in good faith that you would also be willing to transfer should someone of his immediate family request it from you.
Keeping loved ones names in a place where one can visit and read about them after they leave this earth is priceless.

Thank you for your work on Findagrave.

RE: Alva Priest
Hello, I believe her daughters wrote the obituary as it has their touch. One is a Principal & 1 a high school teacher. If you want to add it on to mine, I can show them & let them do what they want. You can add the picture they will probably add more. Do you know the family?

Jerry- I had already entered Mrs. Priest's memorial. I did not add pics or messages yet as her daughters will probably like to choose what is put on it. I expect them here tonight for tomorrow's burial. If it's not to much to ask would you mind deleting yours? TY so much. Angel

your life
Sorry if I was too pushy last year.
You really don't remember me but I delivered the newspaper to your parents on 3 mile when you were first married.
We had talked about your dune buggy years ago.
I thought you were Virginia's son Jerry. A lot of people on the Find A Grave site do not connect and hold the connection because they do not know the people for who they post the memorial. Incentive again sorry if I was too pushy. Dana

RE: Virginia Ann (Valleau) Sheffer
I'm sorry if I came across as demanding.
Some people don't know they can do it.
It kindof leaves your grandparents in a limbo situation, that's all.
I thought you might want to complete their memorial
I'd like even to connect your Uncle Robert to his parents as well.
I can't do it.I'm not connected to your memorial.
And it's Mr. not Mrs., Jim said same thing in Jr.
Thanks for listening and enjoy retirement,mine's a little early but I'll accept it, it's better
than the alternative as our parents have now.(in the
ground vs. above the ground). I ended up with a tumor wrapped around the spinal cord, benign but problems left over from surgery none the less. Dana

Leaner Brugh

I have removed my memorial for Leander Brugh located in Circle cemetery Hudson IN. I am glad that he is now located with his wife, son and other Brugh relatives of yours. Prior to the change, if one was looking for him and used the original Circle cemetery's search engine, he would not come up. Having him placed in another Circle Cem site was an easy thing to do. Find A Grave does not offer any information when one goes to pick a burial location (like number of interments)

I feel the accuracy of Find A Grave's listing is very important for this cemetery because the board of trustees that oversees this non-profit did not keep records of people buried there until the 1970's. There is a book written in 1990 that lists people buried in Steuben county. To use it, though, one must already have the name of the person since everything is listed alphabetically instead of by cemetery location.

May I offer you my condolences on the loss of your mother. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Re: Robert Taylor

I will simply update the existing memorial for Robert Taylor, placing his given name underneath the name by which he is well-known. It would not be appropriate to create a second memorial.

Thank you,

Alex. Anderson
I have requested a headstone photograph of Alexander Anderson, 99334573. He is the husband of Eliza Bellingham Anderson, 66612397.

You have posted a photo of his headstone on her memorial page; could you please post it to Alexander's memorial page? Also, I would like to know if he is indeed buried in the same cemetery as she? The cemetery records indicate that he is not. If not, can you provide me with any information as to his burial location?

Glen A Brugh
I see you have added Glen A Brugh 2 years after I have I wish you would have contacted me for a transfer if you are related Here are the Rules;

Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people use Find A Grave and add data to the site, there are often duplicate cemeteries and memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to deal with and keep everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, you should search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you find one has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, you should not create a duplicate memorial, but you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page
So how do you want to handle this

Just saw that you don't manage Susan Brugh, but the same person who has Byron does.

O-HUD cemetery
Hi Jerry,
I spent the end of the week in Indiana, in part looking into O-HUD Cemetery. I spoke with the Steuben County Clerk, read info from a number of people also researching our family, and went to Circle Cemetery. (Where Cathern Brugh is buried.) Here's the upshot of what I have found. There is no O-HUD cemetery, CClerk says there never was, it appears to just be an old nickname for Circle Cemetery. Our ancestors Leander, Susan, and Byron Brugh are all buried in Circle Cemetery. I have taken pictures, so I know its true! Since you manage Leander and Susan, once you change it let me know and I'll add the pics. I have contacted the person who has Byron's and told her the same. I have also sent an email to Find A Grave informing them since there are over 40 persons listed in 'O-HUD'.

Hi Jerry,
I'm glad I could help. Do you want me to transfer his wife and children to you?

William Brugh
Hi Jerry,
I was wondering about that wedding photo of William and Emma you posted. It looks kind of grainy and I thought maybe it is a copy on paper of the picture. If that is the case I do have an actual picture that is very clear. If you want I'd be happy to send you a copy of it so you could see the detail.
Cheers, Melissa

I went ahead and changed the spelling. I've seen it spelled different ways as well, so if you have family records that have the other spelling-I'll go with it!
I would be very interested in seeing any info that you have. I have her parents names as Johannes and Julianna, but have never been able to verify this. Didn't even have info on any siblings until you mentioned the brother.
My e-mail is listed under my contact info-feel free to contact me there.
