Patrick Henry Pentzer
Don't know if you're aware, but Wikipedia has pages dedicated to the Medal of Honor recipients. Even though Patrick Henry Pentzer (memorial #19580) is listed there is nothing submitted regarding his service and reason for being a recipient. Thought you'd might like to submit your info from his memorial. He is one of three who were recipients that had ties to Macoupin Co IL. One of the other two (David Dickie) has info linked to his name and I am working on the other one (Richard H Wood).

I am not related to Francis W. Reeder. I just had a copy of his obit and his birth date and noticed that the death year was incorrect, so I sent thru what changes I had available to me.

Sir, I attempted to add a correction to the above named memorial and the county list(s) of counties in Ireland won't let me pick the county of Antrim or the county of Down in Ireland. Apparently these 2 counties are the only counties listed for the city of Belfast Ireland. I searched "EVERY" county listed and none came up with the city of Belfast. The memorial number is 71604260. This was driving me crazy. Thank you for your help.

Corp. William F. Steinmetz
Since it's your photo on the Memorial for Corp Steinmetz, why don't you just download it and then upload it to the other two Memorials. William is at
and his two daughters are linked to him(Mary D and Clarissa B). :-)

Corp. William F. Steinmetz
I sent you an email asking you please post your photograph of the gravestone you had posted on Corp. Steinmetz' Memorial to the Memorials of his two daughters who are listed on the same headstone. You replied by asking me, "Is he an ancestor of yours?" and I replied, "...very distant ancestor/relative of a paternal uncle's wife..." Am I correct in assuming that, since he is not related directly to me and since the Memorials were not established by me, you are not going to post your photograph on the Memorials for his daughters Mary D. and Clarissa B. Steinmetz?

Lost Password

My mother is a contributor to the Find A Grave website and has been for a few years now. Recently she had a computer glitch and is unable to access her account. She does not know the password to her account and the email address she used when setting up the account has been disabled by Yahoo for inactivity. She swears she had changed the email on the account to her new email(she's 73 and not getting any younger). When I attempt to do a password recovery, it does not recognize the new email address, but when I try to recover using the original email address(the disabled one), it send an email to the old password. She can't access that email because it's disabled.

What can we do to get access to her account? Please help if you can. She's driving me crazy!

Corp. William F. Steinmetz
He's a very distant ancestor/relative of a paternal uncle's wife. He's not blood to me, but I am working on the Steinmetz line of my aunt's family.
