Last Name:Johnson
Last Name:Vestal Johnson

I just received this request from you. I'm not sure if I'm understanding it correctly- - are you asking me to add Vestal to the last name? This I am not willing to do.
sorry, Vickie Stone

Benjamin Franklin "Frank" & Ella Caroline (PARKER) HENDRICK
Good day. With respect to Memorials #62218269 and #62218160 for Benjamin Franklin “Frank” & Ella Caroline (PARKER) HENDRICK/S, respectively, I have incorporated the information you posted into the biographical sketches for each. It doesn’t really matter to me, but you may be interested to know that FindAGrave policy discourages the posting of extensive biographical or genealogical information in the captions with flowers left on memorials. It is recommended that such information be submitted to whoever created or is currently maintaining the memorial so that it can be include in the bio section. Best regards – John, Contributor #46870015
