Thank you to the SAC-senders for making our memorials more accurate and more complete. Teamwork builds better memorials.

Does your Find A Grave profile make threats like, "Do as I say, or your message will be ignored"? Lighten up. Bullying went out of style in the last century.

Phony "rules." A few Gravers create faux rules, like "no death certificates on my memorials," despite the fact that the FAQs are perfectly clear: "Death certificates may be added...." Maybe these folks missed the "follow the rules" and "play nicely with others" lessons in kindergarten.

SACs are gifts. Would you say to your family and friends, "I accept gifts only on Tuesdays and only if wrapped in blue paper. All others will be deleted."

Airing your grievances on your F.A.G. profile is like greeting people with a frown. It's not a good beginning.

John B. Fauchier -
Prairieville Cem., Tipton Co., Ind. More research shows that John B. Fauchier (above) was the son of Jean Baptiste Fauchier who was born in France, married in 1798 to Polly Darling in Boston, Mass. I am a descendant in this line. Quite a story has unfolded, but will just say, that after years of searching it looks like the immigrant is buried in Parke Co., Ind. with two of his small children. Loline Bradshaw Sammons.
My maternal grandmother was Daisy Dell Fauchier/Purcell.

Nancy Crew
Hi. I was hoping you could help me. On the 1850 Census of Highland County, OH you posted on the grave of Joshua and Angeline Reams Crew there is a Nancy Crew living next door. Her daughter is Minerva Crew who is my ancestor. Our opinion is Nancy is the daughter in law of John Crew and Angeline Reams Crew but we can find no son of John Crew and Angeline Reams Crew to fit the bill so to speak. Its also possible she is a niece-in law. Do you have any idea who she is to them and do you have a list of all children of John Crew and his fathers kids? Thank you ever so much .

Albert Bonwell Memorial
Mr. Jay Wright
RE: Albert Nathaniel Bonwell #139919574
Thank you for creating memorials for Albert and Jessie Temple Bonwell. She is my 6th cousin 5 times removed. To perhaps aid you in the translation of the garbled OCR reading pertaining to her husband Albert Bonwell, I will explain the geography of Twin Falls County, Idaho. In the 1940 census they are listed in the Filer Election District of Twin Falls County. The town of Filer is located about 8 miles west of Twin Falls City. The garbled CDRKY is probably Curry, a very small town about 6 miles west of Twin Falls and 2 miles from Filer. Curry is also in the Filer Election District. Twin Falls City has the only hospital in Twin Falls County, so the majority of people die there instead of at home. There are actually 2 cemeteries in Twin Falls called Twin Falls Cemetery. I doubt if either have been walked and added to Find A Grave. I dont do that anymore.
Anyway, the Bonwells lived in Curry, which does not have its own Post Office but uses Filer's. The "Curry Store" is actually a small cafe/gas station now. (Everybody local eats at the cafe and gets gas.)

Jay, Sorry but I got rid of all my docs a few years ago. I had a genealogy of the Storer family that was passed down to me from my Grandfather several years ago that was written by a Storer family member from Illinois but sent that to a cousin after I put it in my computer. Have also been to Ohio and had several documents and pictures that I acquired then. The pictures I have put in Find A Grave. With 67,000 names in my family tree program it is no longer possible to keep all that information in a file. I think I got rid of 25 file boxes full of copies of court documents and books. About 7 years ago I retired and moved into a mobile home community in Florida. No Room! and my children could care less. Wait till I die and they will all be fighting over my computer. The Rader & Storer Family has been here since the early 1700's and I have been working on this for at least 40 years. way before Family Tree so you can imagine how much stuff I got rid off. Tom
