re: Benedict J. Hoyt
reason for duplicate is that F.A.G. member Dorothy Baker is either deceased or no longer maintaining her memorials. I have tried contacting the Administrators/ Owners of Find A Grave but they never seem to reply. This is not the only time I have encountered F.A.G. members who have moved on and I was required to create duplicate memorials. The people who should be running F.A.G. seem to lack interest in correcting the situation of members who no longer participate as to transfer management to someone willing to take over. This is an unfortunate situation and sorry for the people we've lost supporting Find A Grave. There needs to be a better communication link/ method in order to alleviate this problem. Thanks for noticing ... but the duplicates will remain until the Head Cheeses who designed and operate and control F.A.G. change their practice of not responding so to transfer those memorials.

Bennet and Horace Beardsley
Thanks Neil. I changed the memorial to Horace. All of my records indicate that this is my 3rd great uncle, Horace G. Beardsley. It was brought to my attention by a researcher at Chalmette, that someone else has made a memorial for this same grave, in the name of Henry. He said the cemetery records just say H.G. I tried to contact the woman who made the memorial, but she has not responded.

Bennet and Horace Beardsley
I have Bennet's name in parenthesis as an alternate spelling. It is spelled both ways in various records. I have several documents with his signature, and he signed his name Bennet. Since his headstone is missing, I have no idea how it was engraved. Horace's headstone is engraved with H.G. It was my understanding, per Find a Grave rules, that the memorial name should be what is on the headsone.

Are you related to the Beardsley's? There are people in Wisconsin who are desperately looking for relatives of Bennet.

Thank you for your edit suggestions and additional information. If you would like me to transfer these memorials to you, let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

Jesse H Buckingham/Buckington
Received your message re: duplicate. Not noticed since name is misspelled on the original. Will delete mine. Did you send an edit to the original to correct spelling of name and to link to his wife Mariah Buckingham (41757457) buried at Waubonsie Cemetery? The link was sent to me by granddaughter so hate to delete the link before it's corrected on the original. Thank you!

Hi Neil

I'm sorry for the confusion. There are two profiles for William R Laughlin because I was told he was buried in the wrong cemetery. He is buried in Maple Hills Cemetery. I will delete the other profile. Sorry about that! Do you take photos and live in the area??
