Retired Kansas rancher, farmer, and contractor, BFA, MA in Design in Photography. Like to roam cemeteries, and visit with the people there. I do a lot of genealogy for myself and others, as well as Cemetery searches for lost loved ones. I do research in most of Central and Western Kansas.
RE: Margaret Moody No I understand completely, but when I did a search for Moody, nothing came up and the reason was because of the parentheses.
You would think that First name, last name, maiden name would be so simple but with our blended families and crazy relationships its not easy. Last week I had a lady who's tombstone read Jean M Williams. The cemetery records had her name as Jean Braverman Williams so I wanted to find out if Braverman was her maiden name. THe only thing I could find on her via Social Security and Nevada Death records was her name Jean Braverman. Her legal last name was not William at all. Then I also found her living in Califoria as Jean Abood. Her husbands death certificate stated her name was Jean Shababy Williams and I finally found a marriage license that had Jean Shababy marrying Williams. So I went to the forum and was told to put what was on the stone and explain anything else in the bio, which I did. So I ended up not even putting her legal last name in the last name section but what was on the stone.
Margaret Moody I sent you an edit to correct Margaret. Because you have ( ) there, the search engine wouldn't allow me to find her and almost made a duplicate. If you need further information on how to add extra names, check with the forum or in the Frequently Asked Questions. Thanks for all you do
You are quite welcome! I was so focused today on just getting those names on my list that I did not pay close attention to the surrounding graves. I do remember her grave market being out of kilter with the rest of the row and that hers did not match the pattern of those nearby. My guess is her husband was not buried nearby. However, there are many, many requests for Rose Hills Memorial Park so I will be back up that way soon (either next weekend or the one after that at the latest) and can check it out. I remember exactly where she is.
