You'll have to refresh my memory. Is there additional information you want added to her memorial? Or would you prefer that I transfer her memorial over to you?

RE: Roberta Lane
Hi Marcia - I thought that Roberta possibly died of the 1918 flu epidemic as my grandmother Cynthia Stanbro Smith did. She was 24; my father was seven weeks old. I did go ahead and create a memorial to Roberta. Hopefully, we can/will find more information about her and her first family. Talk to you later.

Roberta Lane
I only made reference to Roberta as my grandfather's second wife without creating a memorial to her because I don't know where she is buried. I can create a memorial to her (without knowing burial), but it will be based on scant information.

You're very welcome. If she is part of your family I'd be more than happy to transfer her memorial over to you. The newspaper articles are online at the Library of Congress' website http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ If you'd like me to check if there's anything more on your family members, let me know.

RE: You are appreciated
Dear Marcia.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I know how difficult it was when I started my research back in the late 70s and anything I can add to the graves to 1) help someone further their research 2) help determine if this is the grave they are actually looking for, is why I continue my involvement here at all. The story of your discovery is amazing and very touching; a true miracle. No one should ever apologize for what they are unable to do any more than someone should expect adulation for what they are able to do. Your presence on the site alone is contribution enough. Your kind words have motivated me and given me encouragement. There are many good people on this site, but no one has ever touched my heart the way you have. The next grave I enter may be someone that a person has been desperately looking for and all but given up hope. Imagine, that your words motivated me to continue contributing to this site and ultimately YOU are the one who is responsible for helping someone else. Everyone here can make a huge difference, and that's what you have done. Some people enter graves in bulk and gladly update specific information that is forwarded to them, some do specific research to find that information, some take pictures, some enter just a few, but those are the ones that change someone's life, but you have provided motivation.....that is a true and selfless gift. I am a 46 year old man. I do not cry and tend more to be the defender as I don't like to see nice people taken advantage of. You have brought tears to my eyes in a good way. In a way, you were my defender. Don't EVER discount what YOU have brought to this site as you are a true blessing. Thank you so much. I am not sure if you are engaged in genealogy or if there is some other thing you are working on, but I have been doing genealogy since well before computers and online databases. I will gladly help you in any way that I am able. That is what I enjoy most. The days of going to the court house and digging through the dusty boxes seems to have passed (although only a tiny bit of what is out there is online) and it is a shame. That's what I most enjoyed. Just like your trip to the cemetery. I am not terribly religious, but I refer to you as a blessing because you indeed are one. xoxox
With warmest wishes, Gregg
