RE: name corrections
Am I correct in assuming you are Jeffery?
I actually had "Mays" all these years in my records (which I got originally from Elinor - I collected family info at John Hampton Jr's funeral). When I saw "Hayes" in the obit, I assumed I had heard it wrong all those years ago, and changed it. Thanks for correcting that. The person who added the memorials saw that I had a lot of the Hamptons added and transferred Sam and Ruth over to me. I was very grateful that he contacted me, as I did not know that Sam had passed, and my mom often asks me whether I know if certain of her cousins are still living. Our cousin Connie in PA usually keeps abreast of the family passings, but she was unaware of Sam's.
I changed the info in the obit, but am thinking that since it is a direct copy, that the incorrect info ought to be left in, with a note at the bottom correcting it. Recent obits are actually not allowed by the rules of the site, but I left it, since the original contributor added it. I could just extract the info and put in a bio.
If you plan to be active on this site I would certainly want to transfer your parents' memorials to you to manage as you wish, so please let me know if that is your preference.
