RE: Almira (Weston) Lanman
Thanks for the compliment. I think we have shared perspectives on the way to do these memorials.

His wife Esther Churchill - updating her memorial - is what got me sidetracked with Almira. If you check out her memorial, you will see what I mean - it has been a challenging piece of detective work and my head has been spinning. Her memorial is 81667297

You make some good points about your reasoning for using the dates on the grave stone. Very thoughtful reasoning. Having said that, I think duplicates are going to be created inadvertently anyway, just because people are lazy and don't check. If they check, they will see the memorial and read the notes about the dates and won't make the duplicate. If they do make the duplicate, then it will be discovered and will be deleted.

Heck, I've created duplicates of memorials that I have created through simple inattention.

Having said all of that, you're certainly within your grounds to stay with your philosophy on the issue. I make no claim to being "right," but I've spent considerable hours pondering the issues of exactly how to deal with these inconsistencies and my philosophy on it has no claim to fame, so to speak.

It's a pleasure communicating with you. I've laid out my "best practices" for doing this work on my profile page. I would be most interested in your feedback since it is a work in progress and clearly you have taken a very intelligent approach to your own "practices." What I've written is as much for me and working out my own thoughts on how best to do this stuff - I do my best "thinking" when I write things down.

Anyway, thanks again. I love your work.

RE: Almira (Weston) Lanman
Sandy -

Thanks for your prompt response. By the way, your job on the memorial is most excellent - you do far and away better work than most folks.

The Churchill Family In America has many errors. It is considered to not be a reliable source of information (although much of it is reliable).

Anyway, you are correct about her middle name - I confused her with another one. Also, apparently you are correct about the date of birth - I double checked my sources and found that two show merely the date of death and age at death; the date that I gave you was for Almira Weston, from the Barbour Collection, born in Connecticut to Elijah and Sarah Weston.

I guess I'm having a bad night. Sorry about that, I do apologize and thank you for your thoroughness.

Finally, regarding the month of birth, the FAQs generally call for the dates on the grave stone to be used but don't mandate it - that's why there is an inscription field. I think the better practice is to use the more credible source material for the date field and use the biography field for an explanation, just as you have done.

You might find my treatment of a similar problem interesting in Find A Grave # 81667205

Thanks again.

Thanks for the correction. I removed the erroneous memorial and send an update request for the Samuel Jackson Gardner to link to his wife.

Regarding memorial 130658827 and others.
I had to transfer 4 memorial from Oak Grove Cemetery in Plymouth, MA to Vine Hills Cemetery in Plymouth, MA. this resulted in some links that are dead but appear on your memorials. Either findagrave will unlink or perhaps you can. Let me know if I need to make any corrections.

What information do you have that George is buried
Dear Sandra Lennox,

George Vernon Johnson married my grandfathers sister, Lydia J. Morris, my great aunt. I can send a picture of his headstone & my Aunt Lydia headstone that I took several years ago at Union Cemetery, Carver, Plymouth, Massachusetts but I can't prove that I took that picture in that cemetery. I live about 10 miles from the cemetery they both are buried in. My Aunt Lydia died in Princeton, Washington, Maine and she is also buried in the same cemetery next to her husband, George Vernon Johnson. I'm can't remember if my great uncle, George V. Johnson, was on vacation at the time of his death or something politically connected to the Irish struggle at that time. That's all the information I have and I can forward the picture of his headstone and pictures of the cemetery they both are buried in.
