Let me start by saying that I do VERY MUCH appreciate anyone who has taken their time to enter memorials in this wonderful system. Without your contribution this system would not be as wonderful as it is today. If you are one of the great photographers that waits for the perfect light and gets down on their knees to take that close up shot I applaud you and than you for your hard work!

Something I have learned poking around here for a while now. It is pointless to enter thousands and thousands of memorials if you are not going to respond to update requests so the data you have entered is accurate. There is no badge of honor for keying in pages of cemetery books only to ignore correction and linkage requests for the individuals you have entered. If you are going to support this project please respond to the update requests quickly or transfer the memorial to the requestor so that they can make the updates. They obviously have been doing some research for a reason. Please don't be a roadblock here.

I normally post SAC update requests sent to me in 2 weeks. If the memorial has not been updated in that time send me another SAC request please because it is a good indication I probably missed or did not get your first request.

Another thing I have learned is it helps to park your emotions and hot buttons at the door. We are all here to support this project and help it grow and develop. Sometimes it is easy to loose sight of that common goal. If you are easily offended by a simple request or find that you begin to take feedback too personally try to remember this is a community and not just your own playground. For this place to work we all have to work together and that requires some tolerance from everyone involved.

I have been working my family tree for more than 30 years. Lost all my computer data and working to rebuild my files. Family names of PERSONS, BADER, COX, NEIMAN, SUTTON, EMERY, AUMBERIC, GUTTING, RAU, VanWORMER, and others.
Son of the American Revolution.
Photographer, Geocacher, and Waymarker.

Photographers: If you can, take a photo of the grave to the left and the grave to the right of your targeted grave and create a memorial for each if they do not already exist. Your photos are critical for this projects success.

Remember to back up your data! and ALWAYS have FUN!

I posted a photo of what I believe to be Julia's stone which is in between the family stone and Walter. Since the dates are correct and it indicates her name as Julia P then perhaps she remarried. If you find that not to be the case, I will gladly remove it from her page. Let me know.

Hi Mark, tHIS is a duplicate entry. When I photographed the family plot I added a memorial and pic for Julia Carpenter who has the sme birth and death dates as the Julia Persons you have.

Leah Stevens Persons

Your memorial for Leah (133359820) is a duplicate of one created earlier by David Edsall (115544068). David used "Person" which appears on the grave instead of "Persons". I have placed photos on the memorial created by David. Could you have the memorial and photo request removed?

Hi Mark, I got the pics you requested of Edith & Walter and also John & Tracy. I also created a memorial and added a pic for Julia P Carpenter (1876-1962) who is buried with them.

RE: Persons Cemetery
GPS coordinates for the cemetery are:
Latitude 44.313233
Longitude -72.553835

The address is 680 Jacobs Road, East Montpelier, VT

The owner is glad to show it to people, but anyone visiting would need to stop at the house for permission. He would not appreciate anyone wandering around searching in his back yard.

I had fun today finding the cemetery. Went to town clerk's office and they had the approximate location marked on a town map. When I couldn't find it I stopped to ask at a house. It happened to be the property where the graves are located. Some days you're just lucky.

RE: Charles Persons
I had to go to Pine Hill cemetery this evening for another Find-A-Grave request. While there I photographed and posted memorials for Harold and Cora Persons. May be a family connection?

Charles is listed as being buried in the Clovesville Cemetery, both by the obit you posted and the burial list of the Clovesville cemetery. You have listed him in the Irish Catholic cemetery which is not the same, that is another cemetery across the road.

I will try to find the grave and get the photo for you, but you may want to put him in the correct cemetery.
