RE: George Thomas Dew
Hi, The death certificate on file at Bellaire says he was born Dec. 2, 1860 in Beallsville. I'm just doing indexing from a record book so it's fine if you don't want to change it but just mark the discrepancy in the bio section. Thanks

Nancy Wood Tomkins Carpenter
I've just found that there are 2 memorials for Nancy. One, "Nancy Wood Carpenter " 80490493, is actually a duplicate of "Nancy Tomkins" 75191429.
Nancy was married twice, first to Lemuel Tomkins (in same cemetery, and she was his 2nd wife), and second to Sanford Monroe Carpenter, and she was also his 2nd wife.
Not sure how find a grave works, whether these 2 memorials get combined or if the newer one, 80490493, just gets removed.

Link beetween USA and Hungary Pridafka
Dear Valerie,

My grandfather's name was "pridafka"

I'm building my familytree.

May be have a link beetween Your and my "Pridafka".

Please send me parts of Your familytree, where I can find "Pridafka". If You have any photos about "Pridafka" send them too.

I have a photo:
- it photographed 1920's years,
- may be "Pridafka"

Best Regards:

Vehovszky Gábor

RE: Edward Fagan
I could transfer his to you as I am not related to him at all.I walk the older parts of the cemetery and take photos of the stones.

Edward Fagan
Hi Valerie,
I made a memorial for Edward Fagan #146945735
and noticed that you have one as well #61158937. (I am not related I was just taking photos at Calvary). I'm thinking I may possibly have duplicated yours...the only difference is the birth year, everything else is the same. If this is your Edward Fagan, I do apologize and please let me know and I will delete the one I added.

Grave marker is confusing
Dear Valerie and Thoran,

This message is going to two individuals as the memorials are currently maintained by both of you.

If you would like me to manage these four memorials, I'd be happy to take responsibility for them.

That would enable me to link them to other siblings of Thomas.

Thomas O. O'Brien, Find A Grave Memorial # 62244179 by Valerie

Honora O'Brien, Find A Grave Memorial # 83943946 by Valerie

Patrick O'Connell, Find A Grave Memorial l# 83945227 by Valerie

John O'Connell, Find A Grave Memorial # 125556831 by Thoran

The marker which contains the above four names is a bit confusing.

Thomas O. O'Brien was the second husband of Honora.

Honora died at the soldiers home in Marshalltown and is buried in the plot at Riverside along with her second husband, Thomas as well as her first husband, Patrick O'Connell.

John O'Connell is the son of Patrick O'Connell and Honora.

Thomas O. O'Brien was an older brother to my Great Grandfather. Thomas was born in Ireland about 1835. He died in Marshalltown on 10 Apr 1893. He was buried at Riverside on 12 Apr 1893.

Honora (unknown surname at this time) was born in Ireland 23 Dec 1836. She died 4 Oct 1914 & was buried 6 Oct 1914.

Patrick O'Connell died 22 May 1877 & was buried 24 May 1877.

John O'Connell, to the best of my knowledge, died as an infant in 1863.
