Thanks, I didn't know. I've linked the two daughters to Elizabeth 121644501. I'll transfer them and delete my duplicate, after I let the other contributor know she's welcome to any data in it.

Hi, I'd have replied sooner, but have been running around in circles. I know what you mean about Edom Shugart's diary. Fortunately, at least some of the people managed to retrieve at least some of their lives, seems like a tribute to the human spirit.
I want to look at your family tree notes soon, but haven't had a chance yet. Let me hear, as you find more of your Troxel family. I have a virtual cemetery for the 1952 trip on my Findagrave contributor page, if that's of help to you.
Some of the people were probably buried in established cemeteries, but I don't have that data. More than one cemetery on the same creek, etc.

|Tom Mauer||Albert Hubbell|
Hi I believe this to be Albert Hubbell whom enlisted into Company B 1st Minnesota Heavy Artillery on Aug 9 1864 at Mantorville Dodge County Minnesota at the age of 19. I also sent a request for update on his birth year. I figure he was born about 1845. Please let me know what you think.

Pamela, You are welcome. Let me know if you need further finds at Evergreen. Happy searching. Warmly, Rosemary

I was glad to help you with this request. I was driving by on the way to airport and wondered if there were requests. I checked and there you go. Anyway, it was my pleasure!

I was able to find a death record for the baby that was born after Tom. She died of marasmus (failure to thrive) 2 days after her mother. I'll try to get out to the cemetery in a day or so to take a photo of the headstone.

Pamela,I am so happy to transfer this memorial to you. I searched so hard to find information about "Little Tom". I am so glad you have information to post. I'll be looking forward to seeing it.

Anytime I find a date that is different on the headstone and F.A.G., I send a request for change to F.A.G. My friend and I do try to scrape off the linchens and brush off anything we can to get to the information on the stones. Some are so brittle and falling apart we do not attempt to clean them.

I have been wanting to go out to Granby Cemetery. I am only 30 minutes from there. I can get your requests but have to finish a couple of other cemeteries including Old Newtonia Civil War.

I transferred Sarah's to you. She is linked with Alfred. I realized that I had'nt done that when I first opened his memorial, so went ahead and did that link. I love the being able to link family members, but I have so many that I have'nt done yet since Find A Grave added that option. I only wish one could link children to parents that aren't linked because one does'nt manage their memorial, and requests to link them sometime go withput response.

Would you like his wife's, Sarah Talitha Casey's memorial also?

I have added the link to Oscars parents. Tks. Geo

I checked cemetery transcriptions last night. See: http://files.usgwarchives.net/mo/newton/cemeteries/newton.txt
But I haven't found anything on Granby Memorial Cemetery. I also wish I was closer to this area, most off my family is in Missouri until 1840. Being able to walk the cemeteries, check the library and the mortuaries would be awesome.

Thank you for the information for Ethel. Are you sure her middle initial was E. I see it as F. when I enlarged the stone.

Absolutely I post the pictures for you to use however you want.

I also updated our contributor page with the information from the FAQs, I think the problem is the rules for the site are so long and involved that people just don't read them. There are other problems with conflicting rules (which causes a lot of problems for memorials that were created as burial unknowns originally) but that's another issue.
Added by Tropico Gravers on Aug 06, 2013 11:10 AM
Many people on Find A Grave think they know the rules, but never bother reading all of them. This is direct from the Find A Grave FAQs:
Submitting Information / Creating Memorials
What is a cenotaph? How do I have a memorial designated as a cenotaph?
A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose remains are buried elsewhere. It can also be the initial marker for a person who has since been interred elsewhere.
To add a cenotaph, create a memorial just like any other. Then email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the memorial and a message to mark it as a cenotaph.
I suspect even some of the admins are ignorant of the distinction (and some of the admins, frankly, just don't care and do whatever they want to). I have had actual burial memorials merged into a cenotaph for the person in the same cemetery because someone reported them to the admins as a duplicate and the admins went ahead and merged the actual burial into the cenotaph memorial.

I noticed that. I have noticed that some head stones show a name that they were known by and not always the given name. I figured he just went by Jack.
