|Janet Muff||RE: B. Hickok|
People are definitely not supposed to create unknown burials, but there are people who, like gunslingers in the wild west, can't wait to add more "notches" to their gun belts so they read obituaries and do preemptive strikes.
As find-a-grave has gotten stricter about the prohibition against unknown burials, people are getting sneakier about their ancestors with unknown burials; instead of identifying them as burial unknown, they're making a hunch about the burial and planting them in a likely cemetery. Just today I wrote to two people who had requested photos, advising them that thier ancestors are NOT buried in those cemeteries. There are no burial records for them, the town clerk's did not find their stones in 1919, the DAR didn't find stones in the 1950's, Margaret Jenks (who copied every gravestone in Rutland County VT) didn't find them in 1986, and I didn't find them either! But some people are determined to stake out genealogical territory in this way.
I have found, however, that the administrators at Find-a-grave will support the person who actually finds the grave, even though another memorial might have been created earlier.

I can't tell you how long I dithered about the spelling on this memorial because I knew that other researchers would not be looking for HiEkok. But I have changed the spelling to reflect the inscription on the stone because I've learned that the memorial must read the same as stone or someone will create a duplicate memorial. If that happens, then it's an all-out war to get the person to remove the memorial and although my memorial pre-dates the duplicate, mine is often deleted because I spelled the name "incorrectly."
So, thanks for your message.

Not sure what you are talking about. He was in the revolutionary War.

Nancy, I'm confused. Why would Lewis Walker have a DAR ("Daughter") marker?

Hi Nancy! According to the Manchester Cemetery web page at http://www.manchesterhistory.org/MHS3_Cemeteries.html
I will cut and paste: "By 1711, the settlers east of the Connecticut River were buried in Center Cemetery on Main Street in East Hartford."
Is it possible that she is here?
You might contact the Manchester office directly: http://cemetery1.townofmanchester.org/
If there is anyone in the family who can give me a hint as to where to look in East, I will go walk it and try to find it...
It has been my experience that the records are not as accurate as they might be. Just this week they told me there was no record for a grave and I walked right by it last week, recognized the name and took the pictures...
Let me know if/where you want me to look~

This picture is fine and thank you for uploading to his Memorial.
The picture for Noah Sparhawk is a little hard to read. Could you send me the Picture so I can see if it can be cleared up on it. My email address is email@example.com

Please send the Memorial number for his Memorial so I can find it.
