RE: Irene Messer Memorial# 20432388
Will send a message today to that cousin in WV. She said something about going back up to a cemetery at one point. Now I can't remember for what reason.
Yea, now I'm the older relative, 51, and wished I had been interested in my roots when all the older uncles and aunts were still alive. I did get to some to ask things, but then you find more that you need to know and it's too late.
I'll get on here and add you as a friend.
I had started off on here just adding my relatives and going back and connecting all in the family I could. So someone could use this as their pedigree chart if they needed to.
My Grandma's 1/2 sister married George W. Messer Sr. and they had the Jr. that Irene married. Then Grandma's full brother married a Messer who was the daughter of old George Sr. Tricking connections! So I had to do more research on them. He He.

RE: Irene Messer Memorial# 20432388
Hi, shame on me for not taking photos back then when I first started walking cemeteries. I will ask a cousin that lives over there to take one for me and if she doesn't, I'll do it if I make a trip this Oct.
I will especially look at the ground to see if it is sunken or piled to try and tell if she is there. But since the obit states she is there, I am wondering why your cemetery you have her in has the death date?
I might even try the funeral home. They are very helpful in these things. Or their books at the Martin Co, KY society.
I have added her husband George Messer Jr., and linked him up to his parents, but am not sure how to link him up to his wife, in case she is over there!? So I think I'm going to wait on that, if you don't mind and I'll see 'where they body lies' before we get into that.
I do know that I had this situation with my great uncle. He had gotten a stone with his first wife, but then was buried in another cemetery with his second. At least on the first wife's stone, there is no death date, and that helped 'prove' he wasn't there.
I've got this on my list to do, so will get back with you in a couple months. Thank you for posting her memorial as it made me get in there and really look for her. I never knew her maiden name before.
Thanks

RE: Riverview
Dennis,
There should be records especially for gravesites that have been moved. I have noticed on the paperwork I have that they are indeed marked as
re-interred & the new location. The city of county should have this info if not perhaps the library may in their archives. It is indeed very frustrating and I fully understand. Keep digging & hopefully you will have some luck.
Regards - Beth Brady

Riverview
Grave locations I am logging are from their office info. I have been trying to locate an uncle that is buried at riverview, that they have no record on. Because of the change of hands for the cemetery in 1940, something either got lost or not entered. I have gleaned a lot of info in my search for him and am putting grave locations on Find A Grave.
Let me know if you have a question.
Regards

Rosie is posted in the wrong cemetery. She should be in the Snead Cemetery in Schyler, VA and not in the Snead Family Cemetery on Fork Mt, Montebello, VA. Please move Rosie to the correct cemetery. This last interment in the Snead Family Cemetery on Fork Mt. was in 1931

RE: Greenfield Pentecostal Holiness Church Cemetery
I think you have to go on the forums and give them the links to both cemetery pages and ask them to merge them. This will cross reference them with AKA for each. Also give them an explanation of why, since you are local and know the cemetery.

Thank you for the heads up on this duplication however the addition of this memorial was not to duplicate but acknowledge the presence of the headstone in the 'Greenwood Cemetery' in Barnesville GA. It appears that it is a cenograph instead ! I am requesting links to her parents as a result of this so it served a purpose !!! Thanks for all you do with find a grave. Bren

RE: Greenfield Pentecostal Church Cemetery
I am working on this, I got several of them deleted so far, I will keep going! Yes, I think it would be great if Find A Grave could put an AKA under the cemetery name with the other name too!

Oh gosh thanks for letting me know, I will check that when I get back home in front of a computer. I wondered why there were so few listed!!
