Thank you to the SAC-senders for making our memorials more accurate and more complete. Teamwork builds better memorials.

Does your Find A Grave profile make threats like, "Do what I say, or your message will be ignored/deleted," followed by redundant exclamation points? Lighten up. Bullying went out of style in the last century.

Phony "rules." A few Gravers create faux rules, like "no death certificates on my memorials," despite the fact that the FAQs are perfectly clear: "Death certificates may be added...." Maybe these folks missed the "follow the rules" and "play nicely with others" lessons in kindergarten.

Thanks for the photo edit. I deleted mine and will be happy to have yours on the memorial instead- no need to make the photo "mine". Thanks!

RE: Thanks re photos
Hey, Jay, thank you so much for your interesting note posted yesterday!! I can't believe that neither you or I are related to Joshua Haines, but that together we have kept his memory alive with our contributions to Find A Grave!! My hubby who is a member of SUVCW (his great grandfather Granville Pierson served 1862-65) had "accepted the challenge" to record Civil War Veterans gravesites in cemeteries in Adams County, Iowa. Since we are about sixty miles from there, it is taking us longer than we thought to accomplish this task. Joshua Haines was in one of the cemeteries we have been to. I am thrilled that the stone was readable enough for you to make out the father's name. Totally amazing where we can find just the right tidbit of information! Thanks for ALL you are also doing to memorialize our Civil War Veterans these 150+ years later!! Blessings and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! Barb

Jay, if you would like to add Morris' 3rd wife's maiden name it was Bowser. She was my great-great grandmother Sarah Bowser-Ludington before she married Morris.

RE: Noah Grove (F.A.G. # 134796811)
Hi, Jay!
I agree with you entirely. You have thoroughly researched it and there isn't much else we can do.
Below is what I have found after the marriage to Noah. In 1900 and 1910 she is shown as a widow on the census records. Either she married him in 1892 and then divorced him before 1900 or he died before 1900.
If I find anything else, I will let you know.
Thanks/Marianna

RE: David Sims + David C. McKown
Hi Jay,

I have no idea who is responsible. I would think that if you checked with the County Library maybe they would know. You are correct as far as what I know, I am just trying to get the info out that this monument exists and who's names are one it. Other than looking up info on each person and trying to find their actual burial location I know nothing more about it.

Sorry
Fonda

Me again,

If David is listed on the memorial then there should be a cenotaph memorial for him. If it is then I must have just missed it. I am an not a perfect person.

Thanks

Hi Jay,

Thanks for pointing out my grammar errors in my memorial. The cenotaph is for military info. I do not link them to the family, just to the actual burial location. No need to copy and paste as that is what the link is there for so that family can find it themselves.

Thanks

RE: More re Margaret V. Wheaton Worley Grove
How very kind of you, Jay. I knew I am am a fanatic. I just want so much for there to be a correct record so these souls will be documented and not forgotten.
Good work on Noah Grove and Margaret. Why didn't I think of that!
I do have one concern...I wonder if the death date of Noah on Roots Web is correct--as I have him being married to Margaret 4/12/1892. I don't know of any other Noah Groves that lived in the vicinity.
Let me know what you think.
