|Jonathan Twiss||RE: Capt. Walker|
The name "Captain" is already shown in his memorial #110198532. His first wife was Margaret Wilson - not Ames. Capt. Walker actually did not die from blood poisoning, but from lung disease. This info came from the pension files of his 2d wife. He died in Montello, WI and his body was sent to Sidney, OH to be buried in the family plot. Thanks.
I came across your memorial for George Schaefer (Memorial# 74809494), which is a duplicate of Memorial# 52118676 which was created first and has an image. I have already submitted edits for the birth & death dates and locations (same dates, but I have also included birth & death towns), his father, and copied the plot number from your memorial.

|Jonathan Twiss||RE: Capt. Walker|
Perfect! Can you add Capt. with his name as he was Captain of the U S Army when he was wounded.
Thanks for all.

Just wanted to say thanks for being so gracious with the photo you have put up of Rhoda Garrard Carey grave marker on Find a Grave. I read your requirement. She is an ancestor of mine. I want to use it on my ancestry page.
I find so many that take photos put them up and then won't let relatives use them. I find this quite sad and selfish. Sorry, but that is how I feel.
I am starting to take photos as well. I took some in Canada and posted them. I don't care how they are used. If I make a person happy I am glad. One older lady told me she is unable to travel and was so tickled to have a photo now of her great granddad's grave.
Thanks again for your work and for you willingness to share with the descendants of those that are looking to find memories of their loved ones.
|Warnetta Harding||John & Margaret Ross|
I just found out from the information that you contributed to Find A Grave that my great grandparents, John Ross and Margaret Ann (Brown) Ross are buried in Old Greencastle Cemetery in Dayton Ohio. Do you know if there is someone who would go there and take pictures of the headstones, if there are any? Also, where would I check to find the cemetery records for them?
|Cynthia Rush||old Greencastle|
Hi again Matthew-
I'm still hoping to get access to some digital information about old Greencastle. Do you have any idea who it was that provided you with the digital info you got when you got it? The people I spoke with were very nice but not very helpful. I copied my own 100-page version of the grave listing, giving myself a "crick" in the neck from twisting to set down each page after copying it. And I had asked, by phone, for a digital copy.
I stopped by there this past Saturday, and encountered a very nice elderly African American couple who were searching for the grave of an ancestor, a grave the man had seen last summer. I used my phone, went to Find A Grave, located the information -- but it gave only plot numbers instead of rows and sections, so the information was useless to him. They searched the entire graveyard together with my help and never did find the tombstone he thinks was shown to him last year. Having a listing would be one step closer to being able to map out the entire cemetery. Any help you could give would be great!
|Cynthia Rush||RE: Old Greencastle|
Hi Matthew - If you got someone at WSU to email something to you, you spoke with a smarter or more helpful person than I did!
Would you still have the list(s) you used to upload your information? Was it a database? Did you enter things one at a time, or did Find A Grave somehow manipulate the database and integrate it into their listings?
Since the list I have does not include many of the graves you itemized, I will be going out into the field somewhat blind. I keep trying to figure out if there is an easy way for me to mark my sheet so I know, in advance, that this grave or that grave has already been photographed. What's worse is, I won't be able to find many of the graves that have photo requests for them, because the maps I got from WSU don't show those plot numbers you used on certain memorials -- my maps only show Section and Row notations.
If you have anything you can email to me, that would be great.

|M Clarey||Matilda Linn Bobo|
I noticed as I searched Find-A-Grave, you have done a lot of work on the Linn Family. I'm hoping you might help.
My 3rd GGfather, John Bobo was married in Miami Co, OH to a Matilda Jane Linn, 12 Aug 1848. By May of 1849 Matilda (b. 1827?) was thought to have died. A year later John remarried in Montgomery Co, OH.
There seem to be numerous Linn's in the area, but I can't find her family or grave. Have you come across this name or have a lead to her family?
Thanks for your thoughts. They say it doesn't hurt to ask.

Hi just wonder what the name on the tumb stone next to Emerson Hester was? I see one side is Cammie but can't read who other person is. I'd appreciate that info. Thanks Colleen
Thank you for the the updates, they are appreciated!
