For changes to any memorial I manage, please use the Suggest A Correction "SAC" feature on the memorial under the Edit tab on the top right hand side of each memorial. Messages for changes left here may not be made.

Please do not copy and post personal photographs of my family members to other websites such as without my permission. I do not have a problem with reusing my tombstone photos, but credit would be a good idea as they are my photos. Also note that I did not take all of the photos on my memorials and can't give permission for the ones I didn't take to be reused.

My husband and I started trying to trace our roots back to Europe about 10 years ago. We were fortunate that several of our ancestors had kept some records and created family books which were the start of our adventures. We were surprised to learn that both of our families had branches in this country since the 1700's (my Stones/Nowels and his Howards/MacDonalds). Most of the entries I've made have some connection to these families, although remote at times (cousins many times removed). A few are just made from photos taken as we walked a cemetery looking for our family members.

RE: Paul Williams
Hi e-mail from Jim, the sextant says that the large Williams headstone is the only one on the site for the 5 people buried there. I can put the pic on the other people if you want.

RE: Brookside Dates
Not a problem - unfortunately I have been dealing with a lot over the past few weeks so Find A Grave is hardly a priority.

If someone had just contacted me (and I don't mean you) and asked, I could have told them the problem, rather than their making assumptions about what happened. Then their SACS could have been sent using the correct date if they were that worried about fixing them in a matter of hours. Part of the problem is folks don't bother to check to see if someone is already aware, they just judge others. But I'm a big girl and I can handle the nonsense.

I just wish people would stop, take a deep breath, and talk to others before they get excited and bothered by what someone else has done.

Thanks again for contacting me.

RE: Brookside Dates
Thank you for your consideration in this matter. I am already aware of this and was working on fixing it. The database was off by 100 years on the memorials and that was my error in missing that.

I just received over 300 SACs correcting this stuff and had to decline most of them because I was already fixing them and their SAC would remove the correct date, or because I was receiving multiple SACs for the same memorial from different people.

It's nice to know that there are folks such as yourself who recognize we are all only human, and that unlike others you don't feel the need to refer to folks who make mistakes as offenders or hold yourself above them.

For that I thank you.

No small stones around the big marker that say Paul or Minnie. I think it is the right marker. When I walked up to it I expected small markers, as there is plenty of room. I will see if Jim, the sextant can tell me if that is the correct one. No need for more requests.

This is the marker in section 4 at Spring Grove. No first names or dates are on this marker.

Thanks for catching the typo in the date. I know the source that the original owner used and was able to check it.

RE: Joseph Kohout
I appreciate knowing about the need for correction.
I am slowing adding pictures of the markers.
If you want me to work on anyone in particular or have any additions, happy to help.
