lliam wilson plattsville cemetery
Hello Joan,

You created a memorial for my great grandfather William Thomas Wilson (132839865). I have walked this cemetery and cannot find this grave. Can you tell me how to find the plot listed? I understand it may be unmarked but if I could find the plot I might be interested in putting a marker on it. I would really be thankful for any help you could provide.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Joan,
I just discovered that there are two memorials to the individuals listed above. One was created in 2007 by Mike Dearbaugh and the other by you in 2009. Your memorial numbers are 41374583 and 41374616 and his are 18019914 and 18019958. I just sent him some additions and added the obits to his when I discovered your memorials. Yours has a tombstone picture.

I will leave it to you to decide what to do.

thanks, Joanne (Bruns) Sherwood ID#48107241

Elizabeth Taylor Ward
Thank you so much for taking a picture of Elizabeth and David Ward's tombstone. I noticed the date of birth for Elizabeth - Find A Grave Memorial# 35298860 is unknown. I am a descendant of hers and I have a genealogy book dated 1907 that start off with David and Elizabeth. At the beginning of the book it list their DOB. Could you please list Elizabeth's DOB at August 26, 1787. Thank you!

Siebert Transfer
Pete does not belong to us. I can transfer it to you. I was caretaking the Sieberts in Garden City until I talked one of his family to join findagrave. He has about 100 relatives still in the area. I can make any changes you want. I'm over seas right now. Let me know what you want.

Thank you.
I think I learned how to use the edit button on the memorial yesterday. I set up a few for my parents.

Hello, Would you please add your photo from Catherine Metz's memorial (33935290) to her husband Philip's memorial (125971365)? They're buried together, so picture will work for Philip too. Thanks.

RE: Brideweser
The reason I believe Mary Ann is buried in Saint Jacob Lutheran Cemetery is because there is a memorial that you made for Mary Ann Brideweser in Saint Jacob Lutheran Cemetery, Swanders. It is Find A Grave Memorial #23359718. It lists her as the wife of Phillip and her death date is Feb 12, 1879. There is a headstone there as well. I believe that she was buried in the old cemetery and Philip in Pearl. I would love to know where she is actually buried.

Many of my ancestors on both sides are buried at Pearl. I am trying to get photos of all the headstones at Pearl and make as many links as I can. I appreciate your help and am thankful that you have spent so many hours entering the names of all those buried in Shelby County cemeteries!!

Thanks for everything!
