Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have changed my photo to this Phoebe Bird in honor of my Mother Phoebe Delois Predmore Rittenhouse. She did the family history for over 40 years and I have continued it for over 40 years also.
I would not have had the information if she had not gotten me started. I quit for about ten years, but got into it lately on Find A Grave. I love the site. I have met so many helpful people.
Some of my family surnames are: Predmore, Rittenhouse, Stallings, Rogers, Swan and Peters for just a few.
My husband's family is Williams, Crowley, Sexton, Hughes, Clark and Penn.
Beautiful memories etched upon our hearts and souls will never be forgotten.

I am so sorry if I have not sent a thank you to you, or answered a question that you may have asked.
My computer crashed and I lost all of my email addresses and correspondence.
I am going to remove my email address here and only use the public message option. Those who have my email may also continue to use it for long messages.
Sorry about this. I have been very disappointed, because I enjoyed chatting with all of you.

If you are related I would be more than happy to transfer, if they are NOT my relatives. Always happy to see the memorials in the hands of relatives.
THIS IS A MUST: It makes it easier if you click on each memorial; go to the upper right hand corner and click Edit and then click on Suggest a correction or provide additional information and ask for the transfer showing your name, ID # and relationship.

RE: Mary Predmore Rutan
Yes, I do remember Mary Predmore Rutan! How wonderful to see that her stone has been fixed and is standing once again. Thanks for sharing this news with me!

One more thing, you should really change your profile. You say "If you are related I would be more than happy to transfer, if they are NOT my relatives. Always happy to see the memorials in
the hands of relatives" Sam Stone is NOT your relative yet you refuse to transfer. He is also not your husband's relative either.

Sam's parents

I never agreed with you on the parents of Sam. The parents you have listed for Sam on Ancestry are incorrect. I assume you just copied someone's tree rather than doing your own research. Since Sam is actually my great great grandpa, this information was on our family bible. I also did my own research just to back it up. By the way, I never received an email from you, not even once. I've always only received the response from Find A Grave. "This is an automated email letting you know that your recent edit for the Sam P. Stone (1873 - 1951) Find A Grave memorial has been declined.
General reason: Not accurate - Their data conflicts with my data." I've never once received anything from you asking for more détails. Since your husband liked him so much as a young child, shouldn't he know this information? Apparently not. As I said, you just want to "own" anything that is partially, directly and even indirectly related to any aspect of your family with no regard for others who actually are related. I will end this line of communication as of now because I'm embarassing myself. I know I should be quiet but I'm only human and it does upset me at your unwillingness to do the right thing. No idea why you don't want to transfer. Tomorrow my mother will make an account and ask for transfer. According to rules you will have to transfer to her. I apologize to everyone who has witnessed my rudeness but since you refuse to communicate through email I've had no other choice but to carry this debate publicly. Have a nice day.

Sam again
Thanks for changing the middle name. I want to say that the last time you declined my edit was February 20, 2016. There was one other time about 3 years ago. I'm sure if you search your mail you will see it cause that's what I did. I still want the mémorial transferred to me but if that's a problem, my mother will create a Find a Grave account and it shouldn't have to be this way. Thank you.

Sam's middle name is Pittman with 2 "t".

I see that you just added a little bio for Sam. I find that funny since for 6 years there was Nothing. The new bio as of today reflects information about your husband who is actually not even related to him. I resent that you have all the control over how his bio is written and it doesn't include any other information about his life, his children, ancestors, grandchildren, etc etc... Only has information about your unrelated husband. I know it is in poor taste of me to debate this over a deceased person and I usually hate this because I find it disrespctful to the dead but I am so upset. I find your unwillingness to collaborate on my ancestor more of a disrespect than me debating it. It's hurtful that your desire to own just because he was married to your husband's great grandmother. My mother Mary is still alive and Sam actually was her great grandfather. She knew him well. My grandmother often spoke of Same and Kate both. If I don't qualify for 4th generation, I know that my mom will. She is more than willing to create a Find a Grave memembership just to resolve this conflict. I'm really embarassed that it has come to this and I'm sorry but I see no other alternative. If I could do the same with Kate, I would. I won't ask since I know that your husband is a direct descendant like my mother and I. Even though this is not his Find a grave mémorial account I will still respect that you are his wife and it's a technicality similar to my mom. My mom should not have to create a membership just to get you to do the right thing. It would also be nice if you would allow others to contribute to the bio of memorials that you manage instead of wanting to be dictator. If I have misunderstood you, then I apologize but for now that is how it seems to me.

Thanks for your message but you're not the only one who has worked on their family history all their life. This is Something that I grew up with too.

Thanks for finally be willing to change the middle name of my great great grandpa but it's not the first time I have asked. It's only that this time I made a big deal about it. I did see your tree on Ancestry and you barely have any information about my great great grandpa and the information you do have is mostly inaccurate.

About transfer, I did read the FAQ and it says 4 générations. Great great grandparents are 4 générations. I could be wrong about when the generation starts so maybe it is 5 but still seems like the right thing to do either way. However, I have no idea why you wouldn't want to transfer since you are not even related to him and nor is your husband, who is actually my second cousin from Kate Lofton Stone. I am a direct descendant and it would mean a lot to me, plus I am actually the one who has contributed most of the information. When you first created the mémorial you even had the name of my family tree on the site and got most of your information from my tree on Ancestry for both he and Kate. You have since removed my family tree name so I am happy of that. I do need to make more changes and I'm tired of going through you to do everything. This has been ongoing for almost 3 years now.

About Kate and Sam both, I don't really appreciate the way you have managed them with missing or broken information, etc.. not with love. I don't expect you to since they are not your family. When I compare them to how you have managed your family like your mom or others, there is a huge difference. I suppose I can create duplicates because I see no other solution if you are unwilling to transfer and if Find a grave will not assist me but for now I will wait and see what they say. It's really sad that it has come to this. It shouldn't be this way.

Once again, I hate to be rude and I'm trying to not be but this does irk me a bit. I have also written Find a Grave and have requested help in getting this mémorial transferred to me since you are unwilling to do so.

Vermont Civil War soldiers in Kimball Cemetery
Request permission to use two of your photos, with due credit, to support an ongoing project to document the headstones of 37,000 Vermonters who served in the Civil War. The soldiers are Henry H. Prouty, #88636898, and Francis Clark Cushman, #88613140.
I appreciate your time, Thanks! Tom Ledoux.

Hi, according to find a grave rules, I would like to request the transfer of my great great grandpa 47702520 .. I read that your husband is a Crowley and yes he would be related to Kate Lofton but not to Sam Stone, her last husband. I'm really upset also that you refuse to change his middle name despite evidence on his SS number and Louisiana death certificate. I would love to know why your data does not match or better yet, where do you get your data from. Sorry to be rude but this just annoys me. Thanks.
