I need birthdates and birthplaces and survivors for several of my memorials. If you prefer to manage the memorial for a loved one, please let me know. I would be happy to transfer my memorial to you if you're a closer family member or very close friend. Thank you!

I need to find someone that is a member of There are some major mistakes for my immediate family there and I don't know how to get them corrected. Any help would be much appreciated.

My family was from NE Texas and Vivian, LA and I lived in Vivian from birth to 1955. Lived in Brownsville, TX, from 1955 to 1958. Lived in Alvin, TX, and Minden, LA, for the next 3 years before marrying and moving to Seattle, WA. Was a member of the high school classes of 1961. Since then have lived in Louisiana (again), Texas (again), Pennsylvania and about 13 countries on 6 continents. I would love to reconnect with all of my or my husband's family and friends. Looking especially for info on many old family members and schoolmates.

Jerry Wadsworth
His obituary is in 30 Sep Midland Reporter Telegram. I've created a memorial and linked him to his parents (# 153095693).

As you are a close member of her family, would you have any info on the death of her son Jerry on 25 Sept. in Midland? He graduated with my Big Spring High School Class of 1958. We have a website where we put info about our classmates, including obituaries. His widow Jean doesn't seem to put out very much info, just the celebration of life on 23 Oct. Do you know where Jerry was buried? I'd appreciate any info you can give so I can relay it to his classmates. Thanks.

Mae Belle Vick Holt # 6358995
Hi Linda:
I am very distantly related to this lady. It looks like she was your Grandma? It sounds like you knew her well, and in person I hope? You say her mother was Nancy Vick, do you know her mothers maiden name? A marriage doc. I found for Strander (on your Grandma's memorial you call him Stroud) & his 3rd wife is Nancy J. Bills & Standers Vick & they married on June 29, 1882 in Caddo, Louisiana, so I'm thinking this was your Grandma's mother? I have seen a tree on that shows her maiden name may have been Festervand & not Bills so maybe she was married to someone named Bills before Strander, I don't know that yet, Bills could be her maiden name? Are either of those names familiar to you? I do most of my work on and that's where I have my trees. I love findagrave. It has been very helpful to me in my research many times. Do you have a tree on and if so how can I find it? I consider myself to be a pretty good researcher, I'm certainly not an expert yet. This family has me a little lost at this point.I am related through the Vick line. I have found many documents that I believe are his but have many different spellings for his 1st name. Strander, Stander, Strauder, Strother, Strowther, Stroud etc. I am using Strander as that seems to be the one I have seen on more documents than any other spelling. There are many different trees on for this family & some of them have differing information and also some of the same information. But each tree creator has different takes on what they think is correct, including myself of course. Every set of eyes see different things on documents than the next person who looks at them. I have found 3 marriage documents for Strander that I think are his given the names of children living with him on different census's. Trying to figure out which of each of those wives are the mothers of which children and where the 2 stepsons Strander has living with him on the 1880 census has been a challenge & I'm still not sure I have them right yet. I also found a tree where the creator says her Grandma Nancy Jane Leavines/Hodges/Vick was also married to Strander & that would make her Strander's 4th wife & her tree shows that this Nancy Jane & Strander had no children together. I left a question/comment on her tree on ancestry asking her about it but have not heard back from her yet. She says they got married on Feb. 28, 1899 in Cass, TX. I researched & found that marriage doc. & it is for an S. Vick (no proof it's Strander) & Nancy Harris. This lady does not show her Grandma married to a Mr. Harris. She shows her married to an Unknown Roberts, a Samuel Hodges & Strander Vick. She also says Her Grandma & Mr. Hodges son John Henry Hodges married Strander Vick & his wife Mary Caroline Magourik/Vick's daughter Eulah Vick. Looking at Mae Belle's memorial I think this is your Grandma's half sister Eula Hodge you are referring to. I haven't figured out who the Florence is you refer too, or which child on the census's for Strander is the Maude Vick/Ward? The Paralee Vick/Murray you refer to I believe is a daughter of Strander & his 1st wife Nancy McCullock (thier marr. doc. shows Nancy McCullock married Strauder Vick on Feb. 2, 1864 in Lafayette, Arkansas (I think she may have been married to someone named McCullock before Strander so McCullock may not be her maiden name, the reason I think this is because in the 1880 census Strander has a stepson named William R. McCullouch living with him, same last name just different spelling. I have seen this William in other trees on with one of Strander's other wives as his mother so sense I have no proof who his mother was yet this is all still just supposition on my part. Some of the pieces in each of these trees fit with your info some of it doesn't. I strive to put correct info in my tree & with proof to back it up. I found your memorial & I am hopeful that you can help me sort out & lay out the puzzle pieces & make sense of them. I'm sorry this is so long winded. I guess this makes us very distantly related. I love doing genealogy research. To me it's like putting a world wide jigsaw puzzle together. I also try to be as thorough & as respectful of my ancestors as I tell their stories as I can be & I hope by sharing my trees publicly on I will be helping future researchers & keeping our ancestors stories alive. If you have access to I hope you will look at my tree & let me know what you think. On look under family trees for Tootz JOHNSON Family Tree, researching the name Strander Vick & you should be able to find it. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Corrections to Memorials
I'm not sure you are aware of the new Find a Grave method for submitting changes to your memorials by others.
At the top left above the pictures is a tab for EDIT by using that anyone can made a suggested change to your memorial.
The flip side of that is that the memorial owner has to approve that change before it is made.

On the left side of the screen where your name appears is a Tab for Contributors Tools, Click on that and at the top of that screen is a tab labeled EDIT. The pending edits submitted by others are listed there. You can either accept them or decline them if you have reason to believe that are not accurate.
Click Approve and they will be entered to your memorial automatically.
Find A Grave formerly sent you a message when a change was suggested, now they don't, it is up to you to remember to check the pending edits periodically. I check mine every time I sign on so they don't build up in numbers.

I have several pending EDIT's on Richard Long 10479949 such as name correction, links to parents, burial plot info, Marker Inscription, addition of the birthplace and deletion of the death place which is no longer for sure since I had the incorrect Richard when I found him at first.

Please approve those pending EDIT's and I believe Richard's memorial will be up to date, missing a death location.

I go to Hillcrest at least every 10 days and take 250-300 photos so it was no biggee to catch the Longs, I had several Longs I had set as well.

Hope you have a blest Sunday.

RE: Richard C. Carroll
You are welcome! Glad we could help, any little bit of information does help.

The only other information we had located in this newspaper was a roster with a name R. C. Carroll who had signed up with a membership to the Oil City 'club' in Louisiana, a recreation club. Again, no mention of the states or location of where these members were from.

There is a mistake on Newton B Carter's Find A Grave memorial site. It has that one of his spouses was Minna. This was not a wife of his. She is listed under the spouse section of his memorial.

RE: Anthony and Richard Burger
It is a memorial created with love and care for that family so you can do it how you wish.

We heard Anthony play piano several times and could barely believe his talent!!!

What a tragic loss for their family, the Gaithers and the world who loved hearing him play.

It is so nice of you to have memorials of his parents so he can be linked to them!!

Have a great Monday!!
