RE: Gus Thiessen
Got the correct plot information.

John Dau, Div 1, Row 9, Lot 129, Grave 2
Maria Dau, Div 1, Row 9, Lot 129, Grave 3

Just decline the previous edits that I sent for these two, which will remove them from the list of edits. The others should be correct. Until now, I haven't found any errors in the plot information! This kind of gives me hope that we'll find a few more that are listed in the wrong row or section, when photographing, so that the corrections can be made!

RE: Gus Thiessen
Hi Karen,

I'm not sure which ones are your grandparents, but I noticed when I was adding the plot info that there were two stones that looked alike, but were in different rows in the cemetery records. I just don't remember now which two those were. If you can send me those two names, I'll check with the cemetery the next time I'm there. For now, just decline them. There are many errors in the cemetery records, but so far, the plot information has been pretty accurate.

We don't get a notice when someone sends an edit this way. That is why it is important to check the Edits tab regularly! The only one that comes to us through e-mail now is when you click on something like Suggest Another Correction. Can't remember exactly what it is called. I actually love this new feature, because there are so many people who have created memorials, but are no longer active. It's about the only way to get corrections made in that instance.

RE: Gus Thiessen
Hi Karen, I'd be glad to help!

Just above this messages, you'll see some tabs on the right. One says Edits, the next one is Contributor Tools, and the third is Edit My Profile. Click on the Edits tab, which should have a number after it, and there should be a list of edits that people have sent. These are known as sac's, for Send A Correction. You should see some from me that have the plot information on them. If you'll scroll to the bottom of that page, there is a button that says Process Selected Edits. If you click on that, it will put all of the plot information on the memorials that they are for.

You may have some other edits, as well, that you can either accept, ignore, or decline. Next to the edit you'll see a little drop-down button that you can click on, to select something other than "accept". If you choose to decline an edit, you'll need to pick a reason why you are declining it, and you can explain why if you want. You don't have to explain it, but you have the choice to. Or, you can ignore it. They won't go away, but it will give you time to accept some, and research the edit later, if you decide to.

You should check the Edit tab often. If you do nothing with the edits that people send, they go through automatically after a period of time. It's 20 or 30 days - can't remember which - and some may go through that you don't want!

I hope I haven't confused you! If I have, please let me know! I love the new edit system, both for getting edits, and sending them. Makes things so much easier!

Luella A Bean Middlebrook
I understand your reluctance to delete your memorial, and I have contacted the person who created and maintained the previous one.

Hopefully, they will delete their duplicate and enjoy the information that you have entered on your memorial.

Yes, we have had communications regarding the Bean family, before. There is more information regarding Luella and her family on WikiTree ... free to view.

RE: Charles H. Eaton
Hi Lochsa, for no other reason Find A Grave says to keep the early one. I'll add your obit to the memorial. If you want me to transfer him to you just let me know.

Peter S & Eliza Bean
My mother recently gave me a 55th anniversary notice for Peter & Eliza Bean. Don't know where she got it from. so it prompted me to add it to my tree in which is how I came across Peter's findagrave information with your postings.
Thank you for adding the pics and other items. My mom, unfortunately, does not know much about her family.
My 2x grandparents are Peter & Eliza Bean, my Great grandparents are Marion & Mary Bean, and my grandmother is Clara "Alice" Bean (Married to Henry Schell).
Seems you are a Bean ancestor somehow?? Would love to chat with you!!!

Bean Family
Effie Verna Bean was my grandmother. I have added some pictures to her sisters Hazel and Cora, and entered a picture of her mother late in life.

I have several other pictures, if you are interested. Are we related? Janne (Shoults) Gorman

Mike Cronk
Peter S. & Eliza Cronk (Carter) Bean


I just noticed your 'Find A Grave' memorial to Peter Smith Bean, and his wife, Eliza Cronk Carter. I had looked for them on 'Find A Grave' over a year ago, without success. I was glad to see their memorial now.

Peter Smith Bean was quite the genealogist. He corresponded with my 3X-gr-uncle, Royal Cronk, during the early 20th century regarding the Cronkhite Heir Association and the "family fortune." Eliza's mother, Penelope or Nellie Cronk was the sister of my 3X-gr-grandfather, Jacob Cronk, who settled in Hastings Twp., Barry Co., MI, around 1855. Do you happen to know the whereabouts of Penelope's Carter's grave? Also, do you happen to know the whereabouts of Rev. Ashbel Carter's grave out east?

Best Regards,

Mike Cronk
Grand Rapids, MI
