RE: Sherman
I think I have Abel's life sorted out now.

There are lots of problems as I have tried to delineate at:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=39263558

I had Huldah with 7 kids for a few hours but then discovered another Henry and Huldah Sherman with 7 kids. I explained it all on the memorial. So that other people do not fall into the same trap.

Abel Sr cannot be Abel Jr's father unless everyone has made a mistake with Abel Sr's birthdate.


I need a nap

thanks for your efforts.

Progress has been made!

Weirdness of listings on FAG
When you pick a person and parent links exist, you will see a list of siblings and you will see the person slightly greyed out.

It is a feature that showed up a few years ago. It was confusing and annoying at first but now it makes it easier to move to a person's siblings rather than being forced to click on a parent and then on the sibling.

thanks

RE: Sherman family memorial problems
I could not find the Hector Richard Sherman memorial that you referred to.

Can you send me the link?

thanks

RE: Sherman family memorial problems
I think that cleaning up the Shermans that I have suggested in my letter will clear up a lot of things. I may have sent the wrong suggestion earlier because I was so confused with up to three memorials for some people.

I will now send you the requests for each person as outlined in the letter.

Then we can clean up anything else we find in error.

I appreciate your help.

thanks

Sherman family memorial problems
Greetings Find A Grave members “menfrommarrs” and “russ carson”

I have discovered that we have a big problem with Abel Sherman, Huldah Richards, Henry Sherman, Phoebe DeWitt FindAGrave memorials. Both of you have created memorials for one or more of these people.

As it stands today:


Abel Sherman:
—————————————
1. Created by menfrommarrs on 7/9/2009
Virtual memorial with no link to a cemetery.
** But has location of actual grave on a farm in Meigs Co., OHIO
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=39263558

2. Created by D DeWitt on 8/14/2012
Virtual memorial with no link to a cemetery.
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=95358903


PROPOSE SOLUTION FOR ABEL: Transfer memorial #1 (owned by menfrommarrs) to D DeWitt (Find A Grave ID 47056960) who will move bio info from his virtual memorial which will then be deleted, so #1 will remain. Note D Dewitt is a relative to all of these people and author of this analysis.



His wife Huldah Richards
—————————————
1. Created by menfrommarrs on 7/9/2009
Virtual memorial with no link to a cemetery.

3. Created by russ carson on 10/30/2012
** Actual memorial with gravestone photo in Miles cemetery, Rutland, Meigs Co, OHIO
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=99877110


PROPOSE SOLUTION FOR HULDAH: Transfer memorial #3 (owned by russ carson) to D DeWitt (Find A Grave ID 47056960) who will add bio info and delete his memorial #2. Menfrommarrs will also delete his memorial #1 since it is a virtual memorial.




Their son Henry Sherman:

** Actual memorial with gravestone photo in Sandoval cemetery in Sandoval, ILLINOIS.
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=83924348

PROPOSE SOLUTION FOR HENRY: Menfrommarrs will delete his memorial #1 since it is a virtual memorial.


Henry’s wife Phebe DeWitt:

** Actual memorial in Sandoval cemetery in Sandoval, ILLINOIS.
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=75478541

PROPOSE SOLUTION FOR PHEBE: Menfrommarrs will delete his memorial #1 since it is a virtual memorial. Phebe was my 4th great aunt.


Thanks goes out to both of you as through your efforts we have solved the mysteries associated with these people.

Please let me know if you are willing to proceed with these suggestions.
Once I hear from you I will send specific messages on each memorial as to what is needed to be done… transfer or delete.

Sincerely

Don DeWitt

RE: 80025336 on Susan Tarpley
Thank you. It is not my memorial, just a relative of my husband. I have submitted an edit to correct the spelling of the name on her husband's last name. Again thanks.
