Hello! I'm a graver, an artist, baseball entusiast, and an active participator of American Civil War living history presentations.|
Find-A-Grave is an excellent resource for determining one's heritage, family tree, and genealogy. Sometimes the smallest thread can lead to a successful path in defining someone's lineage instead of a dead end. (pun intended)

Thank you for creating the memorial for the youngest son of my great great grandparents. The family came over from England in 1849 on board the LZ from Liverpool. Would you consider transferring his memorial to me? My number is 47986407. Thanks
|Lynzi Coffey||Valentine Helde|
Thank you so much for creating this memorial for Valentine Helde #21228176. You have done great work remembering our soldiers & for that, I am deeply grateful!
Would you please consider transferring his memorial to my care? He is family to me.
Thank you again for all you do & for your patriotism!

|Bill Krebs||Sgt James B Mitchell|
I came across your memorial for Sgt James B Mitchell (Find A Grave Memorial# 22097497). You stated that he was a member of Co A, 4th OVC. However, we can find no record of him in the Official Roster, Soldiers and Sailors System, or Ohio Genealogical Society Civil War roster. I did find a First Sgt/Captain, Co's D, A, & H, James B Mitchell in the 96th OVI. Do you have anything that shows he was in the 4th OVC? The pic of the stone is next to impossible to read.

Dear Mr. Guy,
Wow, you have done a great job in Hoffner Cemetery in Mt. Healthy!
Regarding your ‘Corp. Gotthold Markert’ (c. 1823 Saxony--17 Feb 1889, Mt. Healthy, Hamilton Co., OH) your #17815975, have you ever seen any record of his wife there?
Gotthold married “Dorothea Loreta Markert” (nee unknown) in Saxony prior to their coming to Mt. Healthy. The 1860 census shows both of them living there with their children.
“Dorothea Loreta” or “Loreta” is definitely listed in the 1880 Census of Mt. Healthy, but it is presumed she passed away prior to his death on 17 Feb 1889.
I note, two of Gotthold’s children are buried in the same cemetery, and was just hoping there was some record of his wife.
|Suzanne Hough||Cpl. Benjamin J. Decker|
K Guy: Thank you for your contributions to Findagrave.com. Benjamin J. Decker was born in Wayne Co., New York, where his parents lived, according to three censuses. He prob. never was in Germany. However, if you can provide proof, I'd be ever so grateful. If not, I'm requesting that you change the birth section. Thanks again.

I would appreciate it if you would turn this site over to me. This is my 3rd great grandfather!
I loved your beautiful artwork!
|Carolyn Crabtree||William Owsley vs. John Boyle|
I have mentioned this before but the portrait of Governor William Owsley of Kentucky is the one you have up as Judge John Boyle. To my knowledge there is no portrait of Judge Boyle unless it is in very private hands. The website https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Owsley has the same portrait there for Owsley. I see that you got it from the Gene Snyder Courthouse in Louisville. They may have it mislabeled there and need to know. I will try to reach someone there who can let us know about it. There is also a hall of Governors in the Kentucky Historical Society Building in Frankfort that has portraits of all the governors there.

Sorry, hit the wrong button.
The memorial for Catherine Ann Seymour Clark (1795-1873) will not come up. Can you shed some light on this?

Dear Mr. Guy:
I attempted to E-mail you today, but got a bounceback.
I would like to quote part of your *Fiind A Grave* biographical sketch on James Wear "Bug" Holliday. I plan to quote it in a footnote in a biography I'm working on, of William Ellsworth "Dummy" Hoy. Hoy and Holliday were
teammates, and Holliday made some public comments and infuriated Hoy (implying that Hoy was a cheapskate).
As best I understand, "Bug" was a nickname given to players with nervous, excitable, kooky personalities.
I was much impressed by the Flickr gallery of your drawings and paintings.
I have not yet been to Cincinnati, but as part of the "prep stage" for the book, I've been exploring its history and growth online. Hoy loved Cincinnati and made it his permanent home.
