Elisha Marion Davis / Cemetery
Hello Janet,
Thank you for your prompt response to my recent e-mail.
Since I wrote to you I found additional evidence which indicates that Elisha Marion Davis may be buried in yet another cemetery ie not the Quincy National Cemetery or the Soldiers and Sailors Home Cemetery. If this is true then the E.M. Davis in Quincy National Cemetery is not ours. So goes genealogical research.
I intend to do more investigation and would be pleased for you to turn over Elisha Marion Davis Find A Grave Memorial # 14309568 site to me.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Peggy

Re: cemetery correction for Davis
Elisha Marion Davis' Cemetery
Hello Janet,
I have just returned from a family history research vacation which involved going to lots of cemeteries and taking lots of photos. Elisha Marion Davis is my second great grandfather. He is buried at Quincy National Cemetery at 36th and Maine Streets in Quincy. He is not buried at Sunset Cemetery, also known as Illinois Veterans Home Cemetery or Soldiers and Sailors Cemetery located at 1707 N. 12th Street in Quincy. This is a huge cemetery behind the Soldiers and Sailors Home. It is confusing, I know. Please correct.
Thank you,
Peggy Koepke / pwkoepke

Peggy,
Sounds like you had a great time, so much to do
learn and absorb, hope you have family members
who you can share it with, that always makes the effort so much more fulfilling.

Please send the info above thru 'edit' on Elisha Marion Davises memorial and I will take care of
it. I will also transfer him to you.
Janet

RE: Andrew Cemetery
Peggy,
I will get those dates/photos for you ASAP.

When I started working on these cemeteries, most of them in the four counties I lived in/near had few memorials. I batch loaded them to get the names on using county cemetery records. I have also logged countless hours taking photos of everyone in these cemeteries I loaded. Now I am going back and filling in information/photos. I also utilize several area history books and Ancestry.com. As you can see, I have added around 13,000 memorials, so the task is great and it is going to take some time unless folks like you wish to have the memorials transferred- and I am always willing to do so.

Part of me did this because I am frustrated with the members who seek only to add memorials as a competition. I prefer to use more care and detail. An example, I have run into one person who began to add memorials in a large cemetery I had been working on for several months. At the time, this person had added approximately 65,000 memorials! I asked this member to let me finish the cemetery as I had a great deal of historical information that I could access and that I wanted to add. My request was refused and now when I ask for edits to be done on the memorials in this cemetery, I am ignored and I have to wait for the process of 30 days to go back and then have to contact Find A Grave to put my information in. I continue to receive very cryptic emails from this member as well. So I know that it is difficult for some to see why I have chosen to do what I did, but I care enough about these people and places that I want to do a thorough job.

Please let me know if you wish to take over the care of these memorials and I will promptly transfer.

Blessings,
Barb
