RE: Schenck in Oakland
They don't appear alphabetically when they have parenthesis, so they are easy to miss, which is why findagrave asks us not to use them or any other punctuation (except that which is actually part of the name or initials). Findagrave also says to use Infant in the first name space if a baby's name is unknown, so you should feel comfortable doing that.

Thank you for letting me know of the duplicates. The reason they were accidentally duplicated is because you have used parenthesis in the name, which makes them not show up in searches. For this reason, findagrave prohibit the use of parenthesis or other non-alphabet characters in the name fields. Please remove the parenthesis from Memorial# 97336450, 97336418, and 97355168.

Dean family of Anderson County, SC
Hi Meredith,

You seem to have a lot on the DEAN family in Anderson County, SC and was wondering if you are related? I have a friend in Greensboro, NC who is a descendant and he has very little information on his ancestral lines.

RE: Henry W. Hester
Hi Meredith!
Thank you for your quick response and suggestion.

Unfortunately, I do not know Henry's first wife's maiden name.......I wish we could run across something that mentions it!

Again, thank you for your help with posting cemeteries, graves, etc.

Henry W. Hester
Hello! Thank you for all the work you have done to record the records of other people's families. I wanted to ask our permission to include the photograph of Henry W. Hester's headstone in my genealogy. I will respect your request, and will not share it on, FB or other internet outlets.

My husband is a descendent of Henry and Nancy (MNU) Hester and is one of their 4th g-grandsons.

Thank you for considering my request.

RE: Plot Numbers - Oak Grove Cem., Brunswick, GA
I have not been in about 3 years. My son use to live there and I would go take a few photos on the way to the quilt store. He has moved back home and we live in Albany. Glad to see someone is going to clean up the wonderful old cemetery. It has so much potential.

Have you been there? Obviously not, there are no markers in that overgrown cemetery to indicate where they are buried and it is a very small cemetery. This info will not help you find their graves.

Homer C. Cato

Thanks for the info. According to his Muster Roll on Fold3 he enlisted on May 1, 1862 not Aug 24, 1864. He was admitted to the hospital in Howard's Grove, Richmond, Virginia on Aug 23, 1864, more than likely from complications of having his hand amputated the previous Feb. I've added the info to his page.

Thanks again,
