Pleasant Comfort Binder #2
So sorry...I found the error in my genealogy book. Pleasant Comfort Binder was the daughter of William Weisback Comfort and Louisa Elizabeth "Eliza" Stam. There were several people by the same name around the same birth date but I finally found the right side of the family. So, sorry if this caused any confusion for you.

Pleasant Comfort Binder
I was wondering if you could verify if this was the right person I was looking for. My research shows Pleasant Comfort Binder (#103766744) was the daughter of Cyrus C. Comfort (1815-1888) and Sarah Rouston (1810-1881). Pleasant's husband was Lt. Colonel William Weisback Binder (#41722687). If this is the wrong person, I would love to hear back from you so I can correct pages in my genealogy book. Thanks for all your help!

Keohane Graves
Thank you very much for taking the photos of my grandparents Rita and Lawrence Keohane. You must think I'm terribly rude for not responding sooner but I just noticed the photo now when I logged on to Find A Grave. I apologize for that. It really means a lot to me to have this photo. I wish I lived closer so that I could visit their grave in person. Would you allow me to add your photo to my ancestry tree? I would add you as the photographer. Thank you again!

RE: Larkin Mead Jr.
Because Larkin Smith, Jr. is in the famous listings I don't have the ability to edit his Find A Grave page. If you send the memorial number for his father to famous@findagrave.com one of the site editors should be able to make the update.

Regards,

RE: Virginia King Steltzer
I suspect that James and Dessa are indeed Virginia's parents, I'll have to look into that some more. I don't know anything about the family actually. I created the memorial for Rev Arthur Joseph Steltzer, Jr, because he is a former pastor of mine, and I got started researching, guess i am a bit of a nerd about this as well.

I created a memorial for Catherine Steltzer and put in a photo request, you can add the photo you took to fulfill my request for her parents since she is on the same stone, this way you get proper credit for your picture.
