I found your memorial for her #90311777 in Pleasant Ridge Cem. Armour, SD. She was my great, great aunt. I requested a photo of her headstone and the photographer said they have no record of her in that cemetery. You placed a wonderful photo of her on the memorial. Do you have any personal knowledge of her burial or is it from an older record book that the cemetery may not have? Her father was my great, great grandfather. Thank you for all the work you have done for Fond A Grave! Helen

Pvt William Braithwaite
Hi: I went to the Greenfield Cemetery here in Spotsylvania County to take photos this morning and came across Pvt William Braithwaite's grave marker there. I photographed it along with the others there. There wasn't already a memorial for him in Greenfield, so I made one for him (#146700090). When I went to research bio info for him on the net, I found another memorial site for him in Frederick County, VA with a photo of an identical grave marker for him taken by you.

I'm wondering why there are two burial places for him, and how he ended up with a grave marker in Greenfield. Further investigation on my part may reveal his relationship to the Rowe and Estes family who occupy the cemetery otherwise. Do you know anything that might shed light on this mystery?

Oscar Schoyen
I am entering pages for a Helen Schoyen and Phyllis Alice Schoyen in Hillside Cementer Minneapolis. I believe Helen is the wife of Oscar and I'm not sure about Alice. Lists father as Oscar but mother as Eleanor. Can you confirm these folks are all related?

Identical people in 2 cemeteries


Two memories for the same person, each in different cemeteries.

Would you place a link for Clemmie Stanfill who marr (1) Benjamin W. Beacham, (2) James Matthew [they got that middle name mixed up with their contermporary stone--they used Madison] Haynes, Haynes' first wife being Carrie Glenn.

with the Clemmie listing you added?

This occurs when CONTEMPORARY memorial stones are placed and people have not done research or not access to research.

Census enumeration studies, coupled with primary source records reveals the truth of this family.

THANK YOU! - DStoddard

if you are requesting an update for a memorial instead of sending me an email it's easier to make the update from the edit tab found on the memorial page
