|BLStroud||James Stroud Memorial# 73643343|
I've been researching my Stroud family line for over 20 years and was happy to see Uncle James' memorial here online! Thank you for recording this information.
Thought you might want to see the basic family tree for this group -
(you have James Thomas Stroud, however his name was simply James, his brother was named Thomas.) These names get combined and mixed up often. Just wanted to pass the information along. Thanks for all your hard work and for sharing :)

|D & K Reed||Re: Susan Elizabeth Gardner Hodnett|
If you have any documents showing her middle name is Elener, I would be more than happy to update her info. It's not that I doubt you, it's just I'm a stickler for the records. For 2 reasons.
1. When I began researching our family history, I noticed that 10 people would have 'trees' with incorrect info. It appeared they just copied everyone else. If the name was close, they plugged it in. I've come across trees indicating people were deceased even though I had just spoken to the supposed 'deceased' person. It drove me nuts because I can't trust the accuracy if it isn't backed by facts.
2. One of the first memorials I entered on this website, was of no relation to me, but I knew personally. I accidentally transposed a date. I received the most hateful email from a lady that accused me of "desecrating the memory of that person". She didn't request a transfer or even ask me to delete it. I was shocked! I deleted the memorial and decided at that point I would just stick to familial lineage.
Back to the original subject. Every record I have found has her listed as Susan E, Susie or Elizabeth. Joshua's DC also has her listed as Elizabeth Gardner.
It reminded me of my Gpa. He had a sister named Ella but I had never heard her called anything other than Elner. I thought it was "country" for Eleanor. It shouldn't have surprised me because when I think back to most of our kinfolk, including myself, I realized Paw Paw never called any of us by our real names...lol
I'm also quite guilty of giving close family & friends nicknames. I could see where someone could have combined Elizabeth & Gardner and called her Elener for short.
So by all means, if there is an "Elener" document, I'd welcome the variation or history behind it! In the meantime, I will compromise and just use the middle name initial E. :-)

Thank you so much for the headstone photos of Caroline Howland Milton and Michael Howland. I notice they both have the same birthday on their headstones so I am going to assume they were twins. Existing family history has Michael being born two years later in 1852. I think your photo may prove otherwise! Thank you again for your time and effort.

Thank you so much for taking this photo for me. This solves a great family mystery and is greatly appreciated.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart that you took the time to find my mothers,sister and other family members grave sites and post pictures on my mothers memorial page.

Unmarked graves seems to be a problem I am running into with a lot of my North Florida family. Thanks for the info though. I will check out that website.

Marie, thank you very much for the transfer of Clement to my care. Your kindness is most appreciated.
|Lauren's Mom||All your work|
Dear Friend, I know I thank you privately, but I feel that it is important to do so publicly, so that everyone who visits will know what a dedicated Find A Grave member and genealogist you are. Your photos are always so clear and I love the way you take the wide angle shots showing the area around the graves, and/or the family plot if that pertains. You are always so helpful and giving, and I appreciate you so much and consider you a very dear friend. Hugs!
