RE: Curtis
Thanks for the information Shane. I appreciate the heads up.
My other confusion is how do I add the pictures? Do you just roam around and look for the ones people want? I imagine that somewhere on this site there is a form and I will just plug in the info and they will assign a number.
I have quite a few pictures that I have collected for other family members but been apprehensive about putting them on.
Thanks again for all the info. I am really excited. My Dad told me about Nauvoo when I was a teenager and I am 61 now.

RE: Curtis
Shane, my husband and I are headed out to Nauvoo in April and I am going to try to get the pictures I want, plus as many as I can of the ones others have requested. I need your advice though. How do I get the other information. There isn't always an office to obtain the site numbers from? especially with the old cemeteries.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Hope all is well with you and the family.

joseph and elsa curtis montrose cemetery Iowa
Hi there. I am a Curtis descendant attempting to join DAR. Although I have a book that was apparently self published by the author, they are requesting verification. Joseph and Elsa Curtis are pictures you requested years ago. Unfortunately there is no actual photo of their gravesite, only one for the cemetery entrance. Since you have a request in for the picture, I can not put in a request. Perhaps if you updated your request we could get a response.

Thank you. I don't know if you and I are related? Any chance?

Best wishes,

Debi Curtis

William A Lewis
Part II to last message>>>>

I think I found the answer. Look at Lydia Lorretta Howell Lewis's Headstone (16337280) which you captured, and you will find William A Lewis's correct birth and death dates, 30 NOV 1888 to 13 MAR 1889.

I do not know if there is an additional grave stone that I am not aware of that lists an individual that was born and died in 1913, however, it should not be listed as Lydia's child.

William A Lewis
Find A Grave Memorial# 16337321

I am working on fixing this file. William A. Lewis is listed as being the son of

William Alma Lewis (1867 - 1947)
Lydia Lauretta Howell Lewis (1868 - 1895

However, Lydia died in 1895. I am trying to figure out who the mother is, or if the date of birth is wrong for William, who is listed as being born in 1913, 18 years after Lydia's death.

Half Brother?

RE: Floyd Barney memorial
Thank you for your reply. I'd appreciate receiving more information on Floyd's many marriages. They were difficult to record as he didn't share information easily. I'd be grateful for any help .

Kind Regards

Mary Anne C Jensen
Mary Anne C. Jensen and Anna Mary Nielsine Christensen Jensen
Mary Anne C. Jensen #21642571 is this the same person as
Anna Mary Nielsine Christensen Jensen #90500472?

They have the same birth and death info, they should be merged if possible, before adding family relationships.

I see you added her 2007 and I added her along with her parents later but, I agree with Mikel Beardall they are the same person!

One of us should delete our record! Or how do we combine these records! Let me know your thoughts on the situation!

Thanks for your help!
