You're correct ... After two attempts, it finally allowed me to remove the connection.😍
|E Malcolm||RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 73004304|
Hi, this is a memorial where you make the connection as you hold the memorial page for the child. It appears that the connection was made by Ancestry.com but you must make the release. Thanks for pointing this out. I think Ancestry made the connection as there is an existing Ebenezer Jordan, wife Rebecca Brown Jordan, with a Rebecca Jordan Wass daughter. As you know when Ancestry bought out Find A Grave, their computers did some amazing connections 😩🙀. Esther

Added other Horton memorials--most were located around William and Permelia's headstone. Let me know if you want any of them transferred to you.

|ForgetMeNot||RE: King, Joseph & Lena|
Glad you are ok with the photo quality of the present footstones. However we will try for some better ones this weekend after the rain passes. :)
|ForgetMeNot||King, Joseph & Lena|
Took photos of stones placed for Joseph and Lena, plus daughter Francis.
While the headstone photo was easy to photograph the footstones were not. They were completely covered with dirt and grass. Had to remove some sod and dirt to find stones. The photo quality is very poor due to the wet ground and such. Plans to return and re-photograph these stones for before snow arrives! :)
|Susan Seacord Jackson||RE: John G and Martha Streeter|
Glad to help you with that resolution of location.
It's a good sized cemetery, so locating requests took awhile.
Christmas in August!
It's a bit moving to have these largely forgotten family members made more a part of the official record. Cornelia and Georgietta are among those originally interred in Tomb 82 in Eastern Cemetery.
Again MANY thanks,

Thanks again Josie,
I happily made a contribution to spirits alive. You are heartily appreciated.
|joe Osgoode||RE: David Ross tomb 82|
I have a copy of Jordan's book and any of the Ross' in tomb 82 are of the same family. David Ross of Scotland is the Patriarch and his wife was Anna ( not Emma) Larrabee. I'm a descendant of his daughter Abigail who is not listed and may have died before the tomb was placed. Abigail was married to Abraham II and her father in Law is Abraham- C-12. You'll find some tomb 82 folks among the Osgoods. Some of which have newer monuments in Evergreen and Mount Pleasant in S. Portland. I hope this Helps. Oh and by the way many of the rest of this Ross family are in the ill-fated western cemetery. C 90,s or so.
Again, very gratefully,
|June S||RE: Duplicate memorials|
Thanks Josie!! I loved Mary's inscription too. I've already submitted an edit adding it on. It's still pending. June
