edit declines
hope the decline edits came through correctly. Wasn't sure which reason to select, figure it wouldn't matter too much as I deleted the memorial.

RE: Overlook old/new cemetery
Well, I think you are absolutely correct. They should be two separate pages. That being said, I am going to delete my copies of the memorials that you already have in "Old". I am also going to, over the next few days or so (when my internet allows) transfer my memorials from "new" to your "old" page. Not sure how one does it but maybe adding something to the "info" of Overlook Cem. explaining the side by side cemeteries would help.

Keep your fingers crossed that this goes smoothly!!

RE: Overlook old/new cemetery
Hi Paul,

I know what you mean. It does certainly appears to be two separate cemeteries.
When I decided to photograph Overlook I realized the Find A Grave page was a bit confusing. It wasn't until I got there that I realized the number of stones did not match the number of names on the memorial page, and that just down the road was the rest of it.
It appeared that whoever started the page decided to combine them as one. When I added names I just figured I would follow suit. (I was not aware until recently that you had started your page for the Old cemetery). Not quite sure what to do here. Do you know any of the history of these two cemeteries? Does the town consider it one or two?

Overlook old/new cemetery
Hi Paul,

We seem to have some duplication of some memorials. It also seems that you had started a page for "Old Overlook Cemetery" that only has your memorials in it. Those memorials are also in the Overlook Cemetery.
I do have one solution that may work for this situation. If you would be willing to change the burial location of your memorials in Old Overlook to the Overlook cemetery page I would be happy to delete all of the duplicates that we have. I am not family to any of these people, merely the photographer of the cemetery.

Let me know if this works for you.

Vanness Gardner
Hi Paul,
You sent an edit to add a father for Vanness Gardner, but it lists himself as his own father. :> I think you can edit the edit or else I can just click to decline this one and then you can send another edit message. I will wait on it a bit to see what you do. Thanks.

Edgar Kelsey: 30195873
If I read your Edit right, you are suggesting that Ellen is NOT married to Edgar? I am finding indications that he was. Including a death certificate for his daughter Ina Estella Gott that lists her mothers maiden name as Fisher.

Dirlam line

Just curious what connection you have to the Dirlams. My mom was a Dirlam.

Dirlam genealogy

I believe I'm your fifth cousin! That is, if you're descended from John Oderick Dirlam. I'm descended from John's son Orrin and I'm pretty sure you're descended from Sylvanus. I'd like to know if you've pursued Dirlam genealogy extensively and, if so, whether you've found any Dirlam/Durlam descendants of John Oderick's son Frederick. In spite of his having 13 or so children, I have only found one Durlam descended from him.That's Frank B Durlam, son of Jonathan L. I also found Leslie Frederick Bean, son of daughter Mary Jesse Durlam and Dennis Orrin and Mary B Wallace, children of Betsy Anne Durlam. But that's it. No apparent additional Durlams.

Let me know if there are any Dirlam mysteries I might be able to help solve.
