Mistake
Sorry to say that I made a mistake when entering Mary Eliza Edghill. She is actually Martha Eliza Edghill Bowman 64564705.
I am going to delete Mary Edghill as Martha Bowman has a memorial which has a photo.

Still, there was no need
I stand by what I wrote. Whatever Mr. Lindsey's faults were(I know he had a drinking problem, so maybe that had something to do with his reaction?), there was still no need to leave a message like that on his virtual grave site. Mr. Lindsey is dead and can no longer defend himself, and for all you know the offended child (who doesn't actually need you, me, or anyone else piping up on his behalf decades after the fact) has since forgiven him. I don't see why Mr. Lindsey needs a scolding from you after he is dead -- and a public scolding is all that your post (now, thankfully, removed) amounted to. It couldn't possibly have done Mr. Lindsey himself any good, so what did it do, for the brief time it was up? Publicize the fact that he was a flawed human being like you, me, and everyone else? Call attention to yourself as someone who knows a juicy story? Serve as a vent for your anger? Sometimes it's better just to remember that we're all imperfect, and refrain from commenting.

George Lindsey
Hi. I read your virtual flower for George Lindsey. While I'm sure it can be shocking to see a well-loved celebrity in a bad mood, I believe we should take an honest look at ourselves before pointing out others' faults, especially on a public forum where all can see -- and particularly when the person we're posting about is deceased and can no longer defend himself. I've been short-tempered plenty of times in my life; I'm sure you have, too. In Mr. Lindsey's case, I think you have to balance your negative experience with the countless positive anecdotes told about him by others. For all you know, he later felt remorse about what he said. But more to the point, what does leaving a negative message on Find a Grave accomplish? Do you feel better now that you've told "the world" all about how nasty Mr. Lindsey was on that one occasion? If the actor was unpleasant that one day, then I think you've compounded the problem by making his public memorial unpleasant for a long time to come. In your place, I would have left no message at all.

RE: mathew edghill
Hi - that was a record taken for a transcription list, I did not walk that cemetery, the memorial was created based on the information from that cemetery. I don't have any further information
