RE: Abijah Foster
And what "guidelines" are those? All I asked was for you to connect his mother and father, who have memorials. Please tell me what am I missing? And really, you can't have this conversation in a private message, but need to make it a public post? Is that another guideline?

RE: Hubbard Cemetery

Yes! You are absolutely right and I was fortunate to find them both resting in Oakwood Cemetery in Bay Shore.
There is a good reason why it wouldn't make sense for them to be out there in Hampton Bays.

Mystery solved. I am a happy woman.

Thanks again for taking so much trouble with me.

Warm regards,
Doris Haskell

RE: Hubbard Cemetery

How about Oakwood Cemetery in Bay Shore? I think we have a hit here. I'm not exactly sure yet, but I think I'm warm.

One more time, thank you for taking so much trouble to help me. I am so far away in Wyoming. I am in your debt.

Warm regards,
Doris Haskell

RE: Hubbard Cemetery
Grace's mother's maiden name was Sarah Adelia Hubbard. Sarah's father was Seth Rogers Hubbard, one of the keepers of the Fire Island Lighthouse. I certainly could have heard my cousin wrong. He is in his 80s now and has a clear mind. He purchased the burial plots for his parents in 1972 and 1991.
He also said he will send me a copy of the paperwork from the purchase. I will search some more and let you know what I come up with.
Thank you for taking so much trouble to try to help me.

Warm regards,

Doris Haskell

RE: Hubbard Cemetery
Thank you for you quick reply!

My cousin, their son, who lives in East Rockaway, told me that this morning. I would like to create a memorial for them.

Grace's mother's maiden name was Sarah Adelia Hubbard. They lived in East Rockaway, and I remember them well.

My cousin says that he has the deed for the graves that they are buried in.

Hope this information might help.

Hubbard Family Cemetery

I am researching my family tree and wonder if you might be able to help me. I would like to know if Grace Winifred Smith Humes who died in 1991, and her husband, James Arthur Humes, who died in 1972, are buried at the Hubbard Family Cemetery in Hampton Bays.

I notice that you have entered many memorials to Find A Grave. Congratulations and thank you for all you have done.

Wrong Siblings
Glenn A. Branson and Warren Oliver Branson are not the siblings of Zelma Loretta Branson Woodruff. #17000329. Warren is my father and Glenn is my uncle. They had a sister Selma Nora Branson Brown who died in 2012. Thank you and I am sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Eva Lindquist #65370248
I am still trying to find Mrs. Lindquist's headstone and went to the local newspaper archives to see if I could find anything.
I am wondering if you have an obit for Eva? I found one that might be hers, but her first name is not mentioned. Was she previously married to a Mr. Joki, who died in a mine disaster in Red Lodge, Montana? If you don't already have an obit for her, would you like me to send you one?
Let me know! Brenda

Your message to me
Like I said in my profile, "When I get those nasty messages and emails, I won't read and will delete them." So don't bother contacting me from now on.

Your message to me
I am totally blown away by your second message. I was grateful for your help, and now I get this nasty attitude from you. You said in your message, "You probably also already know that Find A Grave considers the one IN A CEMETERY to be the original one which is why yours should have been removed." My dear, you are so very wrong. When there are two same memorials, the staff will check the lowest memorial number and the date it was created. Mine is lower, and I created it earlier than the duplicator did, despite the lack of cemetery. By the way, it is obvious you are upset I kept my original memorial, and the other person deleted his/her duplicate. Oh, you may want to read the following:

Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. There are some situations where an individual (usually a 'famous' individual) may have more than one memorial page, because their body was buried in one location but a cenotaph or second marker/memorial was also placed in a second location. NOTE Jan 25, 2013: If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has a Lost at Sea designation, and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Lost at Sea location may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location.
