I appreciate contributors like you that are right on the ball. That made the memorial page look so much nicer. Hopefully Find A Grave will heed your request. Thanks again.

Nellie L. Deck
I bought a 1909 mailed postcard several years ago.
It does not have the sender's name just that they were on an auto trip and the postcard is of a county in Connecticut.

The addressee is Miss Nellie L. Deck
2814 Monroe Street, Toledo, Ohio.

I thought she may be the same Nettie as you have posted here on Find A Grave.
I am hoping she is your ancestress if so I will be glad to mail the post card to you.

I am scanning it in first just the front part as I run a Litchfield County genealogy group on Facebook.

Let me know! Beth

Jarchow in wrong section
Three headstones for the Jarchows are identified as being in Section C, whereas the correct section is Section M, Lot 117 (I was there yesterday, and they are indeed, in Section M.

Sophie Jarchow
Sophia Jarchow is in Section M, Lot 117 (you have her in Section C on her memorial page). I was there Dec. 7, looking for the Jarchow who died in 1881, so I can verify that she is, indeed, in Section M.

Spaulding, Dexter & Margaret
Dexter W. Spaulding: Find A Grave Memorial# 125501034
Margaret Robinson Spaulding: Find A Grave Memorial# 125501065
They were married on 18 Mar 1911 in Erie, PA.
This link will lead you to the Marriage License as recorded at the LDS Family History Library. .
Also, Dexter's WWI Draft Registration Card shows his middle name was "William" and he was a Justice of the Peace and a Machinist.
Dexter is (was?) about a 4th cousin or so of mine.
Thank you for your fine work:

deleted the duplicate.
p.s. Forest records says he is buried at section M, lot 117, row ?, grave 2. Must be a mistake.

RE: Whitmer / Witmer
Do you track the John Whitmore side? I believe John Fredrick Witmore was the only child of Rudolph and Mary? Thanks for your assistance.
