Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for uploading for Benjamin. I removed my memorial for him.

I do see that the original creator has linked Ben, Martha, and Llewelyn to their parents, added Ben's middle name, and some birth details to the memorials, which was pretty quick.

I see what you mean about that "Record Not Available" message when trying to bring up the originator's profile page ... strange. Can't message through additional suggestions; option does not work ... account disabled. I guess the only thing to do is go through Find. Find may indeed be managing this account.

Have a good day there,

Martha Meserve / Meservey, 1823-26
Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for another heads up. I have removed the memorial I created in Pine Grove and have submitted day of birth and parental links to the memorial created for her in Sprague.

I appreciate you nudging me along as I have gotten very far behind with things. Please bear with me, and thanks again.


PS: Did the same with her brother, Llewellyn; edits submitted and mine removed. One more favor to ask; I have submitted edits for the original for Benjamin Meservey in Sprague as well. Would you be so kind as to upload the photo you have posted to the memorial I created for him to the original, whereby I will remove mine when I get a heads-up from you?

Much appreciated.

Meservey's again
Thank you for the correction, Cynthia. I knew I was assuming a bit when I stated Union was also once in Waldo, which is exactly why I ran that past you.

I appreciate you taking the time to set me straight. I believe I have things in proper order presently. Please feel free to forward any corrections. I should be better able to respond as I finally made it home.

Thanks again,

Hi Cynthia,

Thank you for the photos for Benjamin and Helen M. Meservey Sprague, as well as Elvira (Drake) Gushee Meservey. I once again apologize for the delay in acknowledging. Very well done!!

I also wish to mention that based upon a correction you submitted, I have done a bit of editing to Eliza's memorial. This includes changing her birthplace from Appleton to Union.

You mentioned that Appleton was once a part of Waldo county and became part of Knox in 1860. I can see that Union is now also part of Knox county. Is it safe to assume that Union was also once located in Waldo county at one time?

Would you mind taking a look at Elvira's memorial, # 127059382, and checking to see if you note any additional misinfo and if my "assumption" concerning the town of Union is correct?

Thank you,

Hi Cynthia,

Thank youfor the edit information. I have changed the note on his memorial.

Also, thanks for the terrific pics! I appreciate the capture of detail. They really make the memorial!

Have a good day there,

Benjamin Franklin Meservey
Hi Cynthia,

It seems this family may have an alternate surname spelling of Meserve, but I tend to agree with you about the surname spelling of Meservey and have changed it accordingly. Thank you.

I also wish to thank you for the photos you have taken and uploaded to the various memorials. I am sorry that I have been remiss in acknowledging, but I have had a bit of difficulty responding due to a family medical emergency.

I do want you to know that your efforts are very much appreciated for the photos, as well as for your observations and suggestions.

Thanks much,
