Hi to all our Find-A-Grave Members out there.|
I was born and raised in Indiana although my family Line on the Biddle side has ties to, Maryland, Pensylvania, Ohio and Indiana.
My Lamphiear ties, are from Vermont, Washington, Iowa, Michigan and Indiana.
My Farthing ties are thru my Grandmother, and her family has ties thru Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana.
I try to keep up-to-date on my family lines, sometimes I fall way behind in my research.
I'm not one to hold back info, when I get a request to help with a family connection, I try to be thorough and help lead them on the right path.
I have been using this site for many years, way before I finally registered, I will gladly transfer any memorial I have who has a closer relationship, my only concern is the memorial stays in the family, This program is all about cherishing our past loved ones, and helping to carry on their Legacies,
On Memorial Transfers, Please list how you are related to the Memorial you would like to have transferred to you, not only does it save my time trying to figure out if you are related, but it ensures our family memorials stay in our family.
Future Memorial Request with out family connections will be referred to read my profile.

Death date corrected 1938 vs 1988. Thank you .
|MJ||RE: Hiliard R. Shuler|
I'm a little confused by your request. I only see one posting for Hillard Shuler.
You referred me to memorial 117878481. Would you please go to that memorial, hit the edit button, and make your request through there so I understand your request.
Thanks...I appreciate it.

You're quite welcome.

Thank you Glenn for the transfer!
|ol'mom||RE: Alverda H. Souers|
Thanks. I had birth and death info for Martha Maxine but nothing about her marriage and offspring.
In my database I show 4 children for Alverda and Homer Hoover: Gaynell Anna + Joseph Miller, Mary Ellen + no spouse, Martha Maxine + Arnold Grewe, and Marcielle + no spouse. All are now accounted for in terms of burial and spouse except for Mary Ellen. Do you have that info?
Also, I have had many dealings with at least one inactive site and the edits are always processed promptly. In fact, they go through so quickly I suspect they are automatically authorized which is actually a bit scary.
I have not, however, dealt with one that appears active but doesn't seem to be. It will be interesting to see if the edits are processed.
Thanks for your input. Donna

|Mark Lamphiear||RE: Edith Lamphiear|
Thank you. I noticed that there is some family info that I have that is not on here. Not sure how to add it. My Dad's parents and my Mom's parents for example.
My second oldest son married a girl from Iowa, which i found interesting with all the family names in Iowa. My grandfather was born in Edgewood, Clayton County, Iowa.
|Sandi Coobs||Lyman Warren Lamphier|
I just found this and I am the great niece of this man, AND I live just a few miles from this cemetery. Because no date of death is listed, I'm curious where this much of the information came from. Can you help?
|Mary Hall Miller||Nancy Greenawalt|
Hi Glenn, You are very welcome!
