I noticed you added a photo of a cemetery record to the wrong "Hendrick Brat". You posted the photo to 84357437, it should have been posted to 116655950.

Thanks, Greg. I also have him in 2 Ancestry trees I created for my stepson and my granddaughter. I updated his bio and linked his memorial to Find A Grave memorials for his parents and a sister. I will take good care of him, and thanks again for your kind initiative.

RE: Memorial# 150651175
It can't be easy setting up and managing the memorials of those unrelated to you, but, I do appreciate your efforts. The grandson (82270754) you linked to Charles F Buehler, may be related somehow, but I am certain it is not a grand father/grandson relationship. Charles had a brother, Robert, who may be the grandfather in question, but I am only guessing about that. I do have photos and some additional information I could post to Charles' memorial, and wouldn't mind managing his memorial, if you wouldn't mind transferring management to me. I also have his parents' memorials which I could link. Regards, Bruce Cramer

Charles F Buehler is the paternal grand father of my step son. Charles' wife, Virginia, is still living and resides near both my step son and me.

Since you created this memorial for Herman Springer with many details, I thought you might like to know that I added 2 photos to his memorial.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for sharing this F-A-G memorial so I could view Pleasant Grove UMC Cemetery through a panoramic view. Felt like I was back there walking the campground and cemetery when I used to go there as a child with my grandparents. Really cool! Enjoyed our conversation this afternoon and thanks for all the great work you're doing on F-A-G and sharing just a "thimble full" with me.

Best Regards,
Mary (Contributor #47792069)

Hi Greg,

Thank you for your kind words and for sharing the comments left for you, it really does make you feel you have helped complete strangers with something so important and personal.

I posted a memorial for a woman's distant ancestor, she responded that the stone was the only document that proved the woman had ever existed. Another researcher responded that I had "found" his 6xg-grandfather and the stone indicated he was an 1812 War vet, he had never encountered, or thought to look for, the man's service record- he had lied about his age and enlisted at age 14. I was contacted by a woman who has many relatives buried in Lakeside, the same cemetery as Maria Pagels. She told me she was very old and could not visit the cemetery any more, she never thought that she would see her folks graves again, it meant so much to her, she signed her note "Your Friend, Norma".

I am sure you help 100 people for every one that takes the time to write.

Have a great day,

No problem at all Greg.

I have done the same thing myself. There are many German immigrants buried in this cemetery and many stones in German. I was very politely corrected by a young woman from Berlin when I assumed that "Gattin" which appeared after a given name, was the woman's maiden name, but Gattin is apparently an archaic and very formal, word for wife! I can "get by" in German if it is not too complicated, but I had never encountered this word before, usually it is "Frau". Lots of the folks buried in this cemetery are from Prussia, which has its own dialect, usage and naming conventions, which are not part of the accepted modern German language. In your translation, I assume Herr should be translated "Lord" and is clearly a reference to Jesus.

I just love this stuff. Thanks again,

Hi Greg,

Well, as the 'ole Southern saying goes: "You've been busier than a 1 legged man in a butt kicking contest"! LOL! Great job & thanks for the link on ancestry.

Better late than never in responding. Found the following obit for Birdie W. Howey as follows:

"Tuesday, October 4, 1904, THE MONROE JOURNAL (Union County, N.C.)The infant of Mr. John HOWIE of Pleasant Grove died Friday, aged four months."

Posted it on her memorial with a teddy bear "flower" in her honor. Her sibling, Evelyn Howie Byrum #121700820 married John Wm Byrum #39694991 who is my 1st cousin 3x removed. John Wm Byrum's Mother, Agnes Moore Byrum #22961282 was a dau of Milton L. Moore (no F-A-G memorial). Milton Moore was my g-uncle as Milton was a brother of my g-grandfather, Robert Murchison Moore #28051614. Small world, huh? The Moore family always went to Pleasant Grove for the annual "camp meeting" every September. I went there many times when growing up. Several of my cousins still have "camps" there. Will send you a private e-mail hopefully in the next day or so.
Best Regards,
Mary (Contributor #47792069)

Hi Greg,
It's been awhile since we worked together on the Hemby family. You've certainly been busy documenting Weddington and now Pleasant Grove Cemeteries.
Was looking for another BARNETTE and noticed that you duplicated a memorial for MIRIAM Barnette Plyler on 4/20/2012. Believe it happened due to your being a "human being" and spelling the name MIRIAM as MIRIAN.
Contributor #46513469 "Just another taphophile" created their memorial for Miriam on 1/10/2011. As you know, F-A-Grave rules state the memorial created first is the 1 that stays.
Discontinued my public msg page so if you want to contact me just do it on any of my memorials through the "suggest another edit" feature.
So sorry to learn your Mother passed last year. I left a rose on her memorial.
Mary (Contributor #47792069)

Roy Fifield
Hello, I'm looking for information on a Roy Fifield who was born approx. 1903 and lived in Johnson City, TN around 1930. He was a musician and played the organ. Do you have any more information about the Roy Fifield who is mentioned on this page?

Thanks for any information you might have.

RE: To be the bearer if good news
Thanks Greg! I have really enjoyed documenting cemeteries - with my first being Oaklawn. Thanks for getting me started there! So many people have thanked me - even the secretary of the church at Oaklawn! Will be getting back to my work once again when spring weather finally arrives!

Hi, Greg, I see you have this memorial on a Williams. I'm wondering if you might possibly be related to this person. He is the brother of the man (Asher Williams Jr.)who married Esther NICHOLS Williams #89838696 - Esther is my 2nd Great Grandmother Priscilla NICHOLS BUTTERY and I'm assisting in the 200th Anniversary Celebration of when their father Robert Nichols #31199922 settled upon the Niagara Frontier June 6, 1816. IF perhaps you are related I'd love to hear from you in hopes of finding photos of Esther and Asher for this upcoming Event June 4, 2016. Please contact me at IF you check out those Find A Grave numbers you will see photos of the 1916 celebration. Grace

RE: Re:Rosalie Calrke
I go to Sarasota once in awhile if u send me the details I could see if I could find the gravestone. It wouldn't be right away. I am about 90 miles from Sarasota.

Added by MSue on Feb 27, 2016 5:20 PM

Re:Rosalie Calrke
The Sarasota national cemetery was not dedicated until 2008 and burials began in 2009 so Rosalie probably was buried originally at the first location

Thank you for the kind words, Greg. I do endeavor provide a wider visual, when possible. On the converse, while I posted a wide shot of Frank B.'s grave (because I had one) I will go back and shoot his headstone alone, next time I'm out there. BTW, my dad was a grocer!
