Message from Jane Rousseau
I too received an email from Findagrave that Jane Rousseau sent me a message on July 19, 2015 @ 2:59am. When I log into my account it shows I have 1 message. Yet when I click on messages it shows I have no messages. Can anyone explain why this happened to so many people?

Joseph Kennedy Jr (1915-1944) ...
It's come to my attention that the information you posted on memorial page of Joseph Kennedy, eldest member of famed Kennedy Family, is incorrect. The July 28, 1915 birthdate you posted for Kennedy, should read July 25, 1915.

I thought I would point erroneous entry, for subsequent correction. Thank you for your time. ...

RE: Henry Tillinghast Sisson
Absolutely! Just be advised that it could be awhile, as I am going to try to find a publisher. If I give up, then I will self-publish. If I do not get to Rhode Island and take my own photos, I will use yours and give you the credit, as well as providing you a signed copy of the book and thanking you for the use of your photos. Regards, Dale

Henry Tillinghast Sisson
Greetings and thank you for your work on the grave, monument and statue of my 2nd Great Grandfather, Colonel Henry Tillinghast Sisson, at the Union Cemetery in Little Compton, Rhode Island. I am writing a book on my ancestor, however, I have yet to travel to Rhode Island. I am hoping to make a trip for research and to take photographs, before I publish. However, in case I am not able to travel (I am in California), would you allow me to use any of your photos for the book? Of course, I will credit you in the book, if I use your material. Realizing it is now 11 years later, hopefully you are well and are able to respond. Thanks in advance! Regards, Dale Madden

Powell Cemetery
I could not find the answer to a question I have, hope you can help or forward to person that can help me. First, thanks for all Find A Grave.
I just returned from a trip to TN to visit cemeteries where my Mom's family are buried. I made it to 8 cemeteries. Most had directions & were easy to find. Except for one, the Powell family cemetery in Decatur, TN. The directions on Find A Grave were not correct. I would like these directions corrected.

Correct directions are:
Head west on E Memorial Drive toward State Highway 58 North. Turn left at the first cross street onto Highway 58 South. Turn right onto Armstrong Ferry Road. Turn left onto Ridge Road, slight right to stay on Ridge Road. Turn left onto Charles Road/Gene Charles Road/ Old Bunker Hill Road/ Tucker Road.

Jane Rousseau
On July 19 2015 at 3:56 am I reveived a message from Jane Rousseau. Since she left no message, I thought she forgot to add it before seding the message. Since this sounded strange I waited, thinking she would send one later. As of today nothing. Thank you for all you do

Copyright laws
I don't want to leave a public message about this. I do hope you have the integrity to handle this properly. I built a webste for Knott County Kenucky. Someone (well I know the person) has uploaded all the cemetery readings and photos from my site. He uses several different names. He has had a problem with me for a long time because I provide free information. He has the historical society (which is dissolved by Ky laws) but still represents himself as a legitimate and non profit organization. He says I have destroyed the society by giving free information and making him lose money.
I sincerely hope you will remove these. I worked over 10 years to do all this work and it was given to you without my permission. I did it for free and you are a for profit organization.
Would you please contact me about this problem. From all I read here you are a supposed to be a website with integrity and like to go by the rules. I am sure you would agree that me working over 10 years to collect and compile all this information should not be displayed on here without my permission.

Jane Rousseau
I too received an email that said i had a message from "Jane Rousseau," but when i checked my Find a Grave account there was no message there. Just leaving this message for record in case anyone else gets one and gets concerned when they receive an email alert there's a message only see there is no message there.
