Bio Photo "If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?"
-Coach John Wooden

If you see a butterfly in the flowers and notes section, the information on that memorial came from a death certificate.

If you send an email be sure to put findagrave in the subject line. Sometimes mail lands in the spam box. Anything that lands in SPAM is automatically deleted without opening.

Please DO NOT post photos of obituaries on my memorial pages. If you send me the info I will be glad to post it as long as you give me source and date of the article. If you do not want to type it, send me a photo copy and I will type it.
Per findagrave guidelines "Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record."

PLEASE, PLEASE use the edit tab in the upper right of the memorial page, click on the appropriate selection and fill in the blanks or select suggest a correction and make your comment, suggestion, transfer request etc. This makes it easier for you and me.

A number of memorials in Saranac Cemetery in Saranac, Michigan have been transferred to me. If you have any additional info about any of these I will be glad to transfer them.

Sophia Barnam
Hello Dottie: Thank you for the transfer of Sophia Barnum. This family is complicated because all of the Ingersoll children are listed on the family monument in East Farmington Cemetery but none of them are buried there. I'll explain it on Sophia's memorial so that people know what's going on. Enjoy the holidays...

THANK YOU, DOTTIE. You left me a message about James L. Menefee who died when he was just 24 years old. I was looking for his grave and it was such a joy to locate him. Due to your diligent work he will NOT be overlooked or left out. May you be rewarded lavishly for your kindness and thoughtfulness. God bless you and yours for generations to come. ~ Christina Niven

Dottie, If you will please transfer the memorial for Gerald A. Murray to me. His only daughter Lisa has been my best friend forever. We lived in the same town and grew up together. Lisa would appreciate if I took care of her dad's memorial. I just recently acquired the memorial for Lisa's mom. Thank you kindly from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for making the connections of Rena's husbands.

H. Albert Smith was a great uncle, if you are needing additional information please let me know.

Also, I have several photos of Rena if you are interested.

When I was preparing Rena's updates I noticed that she has two Find A Grave Memorial's in the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Norfolk. Virginia.

There is a memorial 94017146 submitted by John Davis on July 22, 2012.

What is the best way to handle this ? I would like to connect her to her three husbands.

Thank you

I enjoy reading old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and trying to match the stories and articles to the memorials here on F-A-G. I have found the wedding announcement for John Y.S. Mitchell and Alice Bell in The Ocala Evening Star (Ocala, FL) from 10/18/1916.

I thought you might like to see it.
