RE: Famous bio credit email to Findagrave
Thanks much for the prompt action. They do seem inconsistent with how/when and to whom they give bio credits; ie., not to mention that apparently 10 votes aren't necessarily needed to give credit or recognition.
So, let's see what happens. Much appreciation again.

RE: Cowhig, Gerard Finbar "Jerry"
Hi Doug, it looks like Gerard went famous, but strangely, they gave you credit for the bio. Maybe they don't like bios coming from contributors other than the manager?...or they are giving you a chance in case you wrote it? Anyway, just wondering if you can contact them to straighten them out? Thanks again

RE: Gerard Cowhig
Thankyou for your thoughts, it is appreciated. If you should think of other potential famed persons, I'd be glad to help. Best regards

RE: Jean Willes
Now that sounds quite likely, thanks for looking into to that. I think I'll get a little campaign going to get some more votes for her. In the meantime, I sent you the bio for her husband.

RE: Jean Willes
Thanks Doug and for your cooperation. It doesn't look like, though, that FindAGrave gave me credit for it on my page. Anyway, I have a bio coming within the next day or so for Jean's husband, as I think he deserves fame status also. Best regards

RE: Jean Willes
Thanks Doug. I did vote for her. Will see if she gets approved, although the other leading ladies in that Gable movie looked more famous with the awards they had. Either way, certainly Jean Willes deserved the effort and recognition. Soon, I think I will do a famous bio for her husband, as I've noticed most NFL players are usually accepted as famous. Best regards my friend.

RE: Jean Willes suggestion re famous status
Thanks Doug for the prompt reply. Yep, I'm only 1 for twelve with famous creations. I agree it sure feels like connections are a factor. I even had a Nobel Laureate rejected. Feel free to see my work in my 'famous created' virtual cemetery. The above being said, I'm willing to give it a try with Jean's memorial, of whom she has a good chance as all the other female supporting cast of the "The King and Four Queens" movie are considered famous. Best regards.

#39739771 Jean Willes
Jean was my great aunt. Can you please correct a couple mistakes on your memorial, which by the way is excellent.
Jean's birth name was Jean Willes. Her father's name was William Willes. I don't know where the name Jean Donahue came from.

She always used the name Jean Willes (her maiden name) in the movies. Also, she was only married once--to Jerry Cowhig.
My family visited frequently & she was very kind to us.
Thank you for correcting the errors.
