yost memorials
My Yost memorials were created because there was none for them in the cemetery. Apparently you and someone else had them placed in the wrong cemetery and then moved them to the proper one. Accordingto FAGrave "In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred" I do not know how to merge memorials.

RE: Jacob Groff Confusion
I simply created them. And I processed edits to add the spouse.
I have sent an edit to daughter memorial.

In the future it would be more helpful to send the edits through the SAC. I personally like a short note on my wall or as an email explaining the error of my ways. ( i can see why the person that sent me the SAC did, because the DC only has Jacob Groff, with no middle initial, and I pretty sure she is not a relative)

I can not change the children's memorials, except JKG's, because i did not make them.

I have made the correct changes, I think, that I can. Could you please double check. The other lady is a work so i might not be done until later. She is good about edits, so i should not take more than a day or two.

Parsons, Wm.. E
Whoops, I didn't word my previous message correctly. Chas. F. Parsons was the 4th male child and not the third as stated in your previous message unless I'm incorrect.

Mary A Shearer nee Westheaffer
My questions are in regard to Mary A Shearer nee Westheaffer. Headsone in the Stauffer Mennonite Cemetary in Bachmanville, Pa. It's not your memorial but I thought you may know of the family.

Do you have any information regarding her family, the Westheaffers, in that area? Especially her parents and siblings.

Mary Ann Shearers certificate of death information was provided by S. W. Shearer. (Samuel W. Shearer?)possibly her son? I believe she was the widow of Jacob B. Shearer, although her death certificate only says widow.
Furthermore the death certificate lists her father as Jacob Westheaffer. It also lists her mothers maiden name as Westheaffer.

my email is
Thank you

RE: Adelaide Wentz
I guess we would know each other now, lol. But I don't believe so. I grew up in Oregon, and am now living outside of Beaumont, Tx. And no, I hadn't got to that site yet, but will try to venture thru there soon. Thanks for your help, it's greatly appreciated !!

RE: Adelaide Wentz
My Great Grandmother was Bertha Miretta Wentz, the dau of Emeline Stilson & Hilary Wentz (son of Christopher 1784, son of John 1743). This is a paternal branch. If you look at the picture memo that you posted for Adelaide, it says she is the dau of Isaac & Elizab Smith, that is where my confustion came from =)

RE: Adelaide Wentz
Thanks so much for your information, and the link to check out. My GGGrandmother was a Wentz, and have been trying to piece the puzzle together. I couldn't find anything on "your" Adelaide which is where I started getting confused !!! Thanks for taking such great pictures, btw.
