RE: Isabel {Woodhall} Wilson
I agree with your comment about searching on the web site. You have some interesting entries on Find-A-Grave, including several of my ancestors. The memorials I create or manage are nearly all family members and I try to create bios. as often as possible. In terms of "improper usage" of the web site, I become very annoyed from time to time with contributors, who have created tens of thousands of meaningless entries. When one contacts them to request changes, they often do not respond. I have brought this up with F-A-G "management" to no avail. Some contributors seem to think that quantity, not quality, of the memorials gives them some kind of +recognition - it does not!

RE: Isabel {Woodhall} Wilson
I sense that I am being scolded, but will give you the benefit of the doubt. I was only suggesting that it would be ideal to have a memorial for Isabel, IF her actual grave site could be determined. I do, however, note quite a number of memorials with reference to virtual burial places, when the information is lacking. At times, I find it frustrating, when contributors fail to do some searching and to provide links, when they clearly exist on Find-A-Grave.

Isabel's mother was Elizabeth Grindall, sister of Rev. Edmund Grindall, the celebrated Puritan Archbishop of Canterbury. It would be great to establish these links. Rev. Grindall is buried in Croydon, near London, but I do not know precisely what cemetery.

You must have missed the note in the bio.

Kunigunde and Wenceslas
There are two currently three churches in this convent. (there used to be seven)

When you compare the apses in the pictures you see that they are different, and that the graves have a different distance to the apse.

When you look at the last picture for Kunigunde you see the little door. That door leads to the Church of St Francis.

Have a nice day.

RE: Galfridus le Veel
Good Morning,

Thanks for your sources. I completed the suggestions you made on

Forgive me for being repetitive. Please let me know if the following summary is correct:

Galfridus Veel married Maud (Matilda) fitzHarding of Hunteneford (Huntingford). Their children were Henry, Robert, and William. Maud (Matilda) was married by 1206 to Galfridus (Geffredus) Veel, she being the daughter of Harding of Hunteneford (Huntingford) and Dionysia. Harding was the son of Elias FitzHarding. Elias was the son of Harding FitzHarding Alnoth who died before 1120 and who fathered Robert "the Devout" Harding. Harding FitzHarding Alnoth was the son of Eadonth who died 1067.

Good evening, you left me a message regarding Edward Allerton, Rose Allerton. I am aware that the City of London Cemetery did not open until the 1850's. The Union of Benefices Act 1860 allowed for the demolition of many unused City churches, and for the reinterment of the remains in the City of London Cemetery. The cemetery also contains inhumations from London churches destroyed during the Blitz. Among these, were the burials from St Dionis Backchurch in 1878.

Moving Alberic Dammartin to this "cemetery" is not a problem, although when it is in French, I am out-stepping any field of knowledge on my part and I am reluctant to make an error, or create a duplicate church. Would you kindly check the burial and church for me in ensure no error has been made? Thank you! He is memorial #48953958.

Elizabeth Stafford
I have declined to link Elizabeth to her parents, only because their memorials are against Findagrave policy, which is that unknown burials are to be used for recent deaths within the last thirty days. The owner of those memorials has blatantly gone against this policy, has been asked to stop by Findagrave, and has added many direct ancestral historical memorials, where those who obey the rules, chose not to add them. I will not link to her unknown burials, and to you, I most humbly apologize.

Thank you for the correct listing for his burial. I've moved his memorial as you suggested. As always I appreciate your help in the uncovering of these distant ancestors.

RE: Robert III de Dampierre
I'll try to find the source when I have some time over the weekend. It's been a year after all.

Two memorials are perfectly okay when the person was buried there at a time. Take Floyd Collins as an example.

All the best and good night.

Robert III

The memorial in Ypres Cathedral marks only his former burial place and the place of the gravestone. He was (a couple of centuries) later moved to Flines.

Would you be so kind as to let me know the cemetery number that you feel he should be moved to? Thanks ever so much.

negative comments
disregard what others say about unknowns and such i have done the same thing with mine because besides by not adding them it doesn't help other peoples research and by adding them it not only helps others but also helps solve a mystery who knows someone else might know where the person was buried and then mystery solved thank you for what you have done so far!

I don't with to link to memorials for which the burial site is not known. Please do not ask me again, unless you have some evidence of the location of their graves.

Re Lydia Dunham Fuller Cushman
No, entry is based on Oxford County MGIS listing along with these entries that indicate headstones photos exist there.

Cushman, Ernest L 52582538
Cushman, George 52581232
Cushman, Gen George Washington 33309140
Cushman, Mary French 33309316

Cemetery identified as Cole Hill Cemetery, OxWsk01. "On same road as Whales Back Cemetery, down Route 232, 1 mile north of Junction #26". This agrees with the map on Find A Grave.

RE: Dominick Wheeler, dupl. memorial
What is right is not often what is easy. When Dominick wrote his will, when he died, when he was buried, & when his will was proved, England & all of her colonies were using the Julian calendar (25 Mar-24Mar) not the Gregorian (1 Jan-31 Dec)calendar. In Sep 1752, England, & all of her colonies, switched to the Gregorian calendar. Sep 3, 1752, became 14 Sep, 1752. The days, Sep 3-13, 1752, "never existed" in England or any of her colonies. Some early clerks & others tried to compensate for England's "backwardness" by writing "11 Feb 1731-2" or "11 Feb 1731/2." When the Gregorian calendar was adopted many, wrongly, converted long passed Julian calendar dates to Gregorian dates. George Washington's correct Julian calendar birth date, 11 Feb 1731 (1731-2, 1731/2, 1731/32) was wrongly changed to the Gregorian calendar date, 22 Feb 1732. That error is now "set in stone", because no one wants to do the hard work of correcting it.
Paraphrasing Hilary Clinton, "At this point, what difference does it make?"
From a personal standpoint: Our eldest son died in Korea, 6 Nov 1973. I was in Korea. When I called my wife in California, the date in California was 5 Nov 1973. A small matter of an International Date Line? Not to my wife.
If we can apply the calendar of our choice, why not convert pre-Gregorian dates to the Jewish, Islamic, Mayan, or other calendar?
