Bio and Links
I have been reseaching my family for at least 25 years and just in the past couple years have been taking photos of headstones. I always carry a camera so when ever I have some free time I head for a cemetery in my area and if there is a photo request all the better.
My family names are: Petro,Gibson,Western,Tirtel,Hogue,Long,Pieper, Thompson,Mather,and Eckel just to name a few.

If you see where I have duplicated, or entered the wrong information, and if you want me to transfer an entry of your family I'll be happy to as well, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Thank God for

Helen Merritt duplicate possible
Hi! Thanks for the heads up...I checked out both memorials and, yes, I agree they could be duplicates....I've requested a photo for my memorial and will give it a little while so hope you don't mind and then if I don't get one or someone sends back that there is no stone at Paris Cemetery for Helen and/or the child then I will delete my memorials. The only reason that I want to wait is that I used burial records for the memorials that I used for this cemetery and I do understand that mistakes are made...all the time lol! So if you find more information that confirms the location before I do please let me know. Have a good night :)

RE: Jacob Waltz
Hi Shirley,
Jacob Waltz was born in 1777. Peter died on April 26, 1832 at 83 years of age so his birthdate would be around 1750. Also Eva was Peter's second wife and Jacob was the son of his 1st wife. Her last name was Moon but her first name is unknown. I found some of this online but most of it comes from "Waltz Family History and Genealogical Record" written by L. Waltz.
Thanks for your help,

Thank you for letting me know you found them. I have put Greenwood Cemetery in on William's. Could you possibly tell me when M L was born and died, I think I may know who that is.

I do understand your point and if I duplicate I will always delete mine, But in this case the other folks Duplicated my memorial that was created May 4,2011, there memorial was created April 10,2012.

Therefor they should have checked first and they should Delete there duplicate not me, Everyone holds me "to the Date" standard's and it has made me be the same, I just do not tell or ask no one to delete there duplicates of mine.

If you would like to inform them they have duplicated my memorial that is fine but I will not do so, it is not my business.

Also if they would have asked I always update memorials on a daily basis so no one can say they tried to contact me because they did not do so. I would have even transferred if they would have ask.

I hate to be this way but little is given to me and folks will not even transfer close family members even though they are within the guidelines.

So at this time I will not delete my memorial since it was created 11 months before there's was

Thank You
