Bio and Links
Bio Photo I no longer make changes, additions, transfers from messages left on my contributor page. Please follow FindAGrave procedures by using the Edit tab on the memorial page to request changes, additions, request transfers, etc.

Thank you for following FindAGrave procedures.

Contributor Connie posted this. I thought it was such a great idea I posted it to my page! Thanks, Connie!

Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word.

To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.

Managers will no longer receive emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!

The exception:
Requesting a transfer other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.


Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs, photographs I have taken of grave stones or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to or any other website or personal webpages.

Please see FindAGrave Frequently Asked questions for more information:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed information and photos for my memorials. I usually link to the individual contributor using HTML code. If this is unacceptable to you just let me know you prefer to remain anonymous.

Yes, I found that odd as well. I won't be volunteering there until next week and as I recall there wasn't much on either family. I imagine it was handed down through the generations. I will however look and see if anything is there. I will keep you posted.

RE: I trust your judgement
You have been VERY helpful. I, too, was thinking that unlinking from relatives and making sure they're linked on the newer memorial in the new cemetery is the way to go, just to keep confusion to a minimum--I can put relationships in the bio field.

I really appreciate the thoughtfulness of your reply. I've been really struggling with this.

I trust your judgement
In the past, I've been moving or deleting memorials of folks who've been moved from one cemetery to another, even though I know someone will come in behind me and recreate because the records are out there showing the original cemetery. But I noticed today that a number of people do not delete--instead, they put a note on the memorial letting folks know of the move. What is your opinion on this? I was under the impression that duplicates, except for cenotaphs, are not okay. But it seems smarter to leave that original up with the notation of the move. What are your thoughts? I really respect what you do here, and I'm hoping you might have some insight.

Yes, I have permission for the historical research I do but am more than happy to document that. I am always pleased when I can link soldiers to their families. I did read through you bio and didn't see anything but I read my own stuff over and over and often miss things, will do tomorrow and thank you for what you do.

When I first started doing the cw soldiers in the Valley Cemetery I was told there were between 15-25, to date I have found 140. I am finding that many do not have anything on their stone about their service. The Shattuck/Stevens family's were well to do and certainly could afford the engraving. It was probably just too difficult. I wonder if Jr. would have joined the military if his father hadn't died.

While looking through records at the Historic Society for civil war veterans I came across the son of Amos Shattuck. I have uploaded to his grave site.

I love the documentation you have added to his site and am pleased that he is now connected to his parents.

Thank you for your efforts.

RE: Paul Vernon Tuttle, Jr
I apologize. I have found on that Belle is listed as a second wife of Paul. I'm sorry for the confusion. I hope to find more sources to support their marriage.

Thank you,

RE: Paul Vernon Tuttle, Jr
Sorry I didn't send an additional message yesterday to explain. So here's the issue. I don't believe Coralinn is Belle who this particular Paul Tuttle Sr is married to and here is my reasoning.

#1. There is a birth record for Paul showing a birth as 14 July 1883 and the 1900 census shows he was also born in July 1883. Not January 1883 like the headstone states.
#2. I don't believe Belle is a nickname for Coralinn. Coralinn's death record shows she was born in 1889 and died in 1941. Different from Belle's headstone with Paul.
#3. Paul Jr's death record shows his mother's maiden name is Bates (assumed to be Coralinn Bates) which would mean Belle would not be his mother.

Let me know what you think.

RE: Madison M. Brewer (#42444149)
What that obituary doesn't seem to mention then, is that Brewer, before attending Columbia University, served as a private in the US Army Signal Corps from September 1882 until October 1887.

My source is the Historical Register & Dictionary of the US Army, Volume 1 (page 243)
