Freida F. Schepers Rasche Kiefer
Hi Rita,

There are two memorials for this person. I sent you her obituary so you can see what transpired with her marriages.

Your memorial for her has her headstone with her last name of her 1st husband.

The other memorial (made by someone else) is a memorial for her with the last name of her second husband.

Not sure how you want to handle this... either way there are two memorials for her and one should be deleted. Just wanted to bring it to your attention. Thank you so much for all of your contributions and hard work on Find A Grave. :)

You are correct. This was duplicate memorial. I notice the dates we prepared the memorials were near each other so that must be my excuse! Thanks for bringing to my attention. Have a great day!

RE: C A & Mary Arbogast
Rita, you're certainly welcome. It may take a while to get your new requests done. From the looks of it, we received about 6 inches of snow last night.

Thank you so much for getting the picture of Laura's headstone. I was in Vincennes a couple of years ago and somehow missed getting her headstone (maybe because it was freezing cold outside). She was so young and faithful to her dog, it broke my heart reading her story of her death, because all she did was get a kiss from her baby. Anyway, thank you again, I so very much appreciate it.

RE: Memorial SACs
Hi Rita,

Thank you for accepting the edits I sent. I appreciate that very much.

I have not heard that DAR does not like that information made public. That is interesting.

The documents I posted are available to the public, so it is not something that isn't already available to anyone who wants to get it. I post them on the memorial in order to facilitate further familial connections to be verified and made. Without those documents, making some of the burial connections is nearly impossible since the information is not always easily available in census records. And since making some of the burial connections is a multi-staged project, coming back to a memorial and having the document there to refer to is tremendously helpful.

Why does the DAR and SAR organizations allow their members to have a DAR or SAR emblem engraved on their grave stones if they do not want the information made public? Or is it just the documents that they don't want public? Or just the ID numbers?

I can certainly edit the documents before I post them and remove the ID number or whatever else you think should be removed. That would satisfy DAR and SAR while still leveraging the family connection information contained in the document.

Tell me what I should remove, and what the memorial is and I will edit the document to remove that information while still keeping the family connection information that will assist a researcher with making burial links.

Thank you for your help and for this information. I appreciate your help.

Susan Eaton
Gladys Geneve Ingram (Ware) Hill was married to Joseph Preston Ware (not Ward) on Feb 21, 1931.

Rosemary is actually Rosemary Ware. They also had a 2nd daughter named Lenore Ware.

Can you correct?

Thanks Rita, for the photos. As you know by now, I am working on the Trueblood Family genealogy,and Leah is a descendant of that family. So, I appreciate your efforts very much. It seems that you never fail to come thru for me when I have a relative buried in Vincennes.

Thanks again for everything!!
