RE: John Russell Shadow
First, no I've never hugged a giraffe but it's now on my bucket list.

John Shadow's bio came together quite quickly once I found the newpaper article and the record requesting the military grave marker - those always have the unit in which a veteran served. Fold3 was a total bust. It isn't even clear if his body was ever recovered and repatriated. So many of the aircrews who perished still lie undiscovered in unknown parts of the jungles and hills of Assam and Burma. I've spent about 9 years in India but have not been to Assam, so this one had a special affinity for me.

Best, Barry

John Russell Shadow
Thanks much for transferring the memorial for John Russell Shadow. I've found quite a bit of information about his service and also newspaper articles about his death and a photo. The China-Burma-India theater was one of the nastiest in the "Pacific War" and flying "The Hump" was one of the memorable air campaigns to supply the troops. He evidently was a member of an air crew that went down - one among many and many never found. Hope you can take a look at the memorial I developed # 50886568

Best, Barry

Edward L Shadow
Thanks much for transferring the memorial for Edward L. Shadow. Much appreciated. I've made the edits and he's now linked to his father (haven't found his mother yet).

Next time I hug a giraffe I'll think of you, OK?

Ollie Ferree Transfer
Thank you so much for transferring Ollie's memorial to my care. I will continue to try and reconnect her with her family (Ferree, Warden & Day). Her memorial will be well taken care of.

Ollie Rose FERREE Warden Day
Hi again,
I would like you to please TRANSFER Ollie's memorial to me so that I can continue to link her to husbands, children & other family. She was a FERREE by birth. I see that she is the only Ferree that you maintain, so I'm guessing that she is not a relative. I am related to her. thank you so much
P.S. Check some of my other family memorials, & you'll see how I care for them.

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy
==========================

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Ollie Rose FERREE
Hi again,
The "two" memorials for Ollie Rose FERREE Warden Day are now one. The creator of the other memorial deleted hers, and added her headstone photo to the memorial you created Find A Grave # 52880542.

PLEASE correct the birth dates for Ollie & the data that I added to her memorial clearly shows the name of her first & second husbands (Warden died) & 2nd husband DAY. Thanks
P.S. I will gladly update & care for her, if you will transfer her to me. My g grandmother was a FERREE (brother to Ollie's father) thanks, Renee

Ollie Rose FERREE
Hi,
Apparently, you got my note about the Ollie Rose Ferree memorial as Find A Grave notified me that you received it. However, I went to the memorial & do not see any changes. Please merge it with the following memorial Find A Grave# 99601202 (Ollie Rose Ferree Warden Day) I'm sure they are the same person. Check that memorial & you'll see the wedding data that I added. It clearly states that Ollie's parents were W.G. Ferree & Mary Frances Meek. BINGO..........that is "our" Ollie. thanks, Renee
