|B.J. Waters||RE: Belle Daniell|
Okay, I was thinking that if you believe there is any extractable data on the funeral note that you would like added to her memorial, then we can put it in the bio section, I guess?
|B.J. Waters||Belle Daniell|
Hi Dave, it appears that this was a breakthrough for you, and for that I am glad. My only goal for adding to this site is so that burial locations for friends and loved ones can be found.
Ordinarily I stick with Find A Grave's 4-generation transfer policy, so that as a steward of these memorials, I transfer to the closest living relatives. But in your case, do you think I should transfer her to you, or hold out for a close relative? I usually don't give out my personal e-mail address but if you feel strongly about having a scanned document attached, I will transfer to you. My personal belief is that only photos belong in the photo section, and that the text of documents can be added in the bio section.

I have added the information as requested and also transferred the memorial to you. Thanks, Heather Clark

That record was from a partial cemetery transcription, so at one time, there was a marker at East Memorial. If his body was moved to Missouri, I can mark this one as a cenotaph if we can confirm the marker is still there. I'll put in a photo request. Thanks, Cheri
|Wendi Muto||RE: Boatman transfers|
I'm glad that the transfers worked for you. I7ve been able to find family through findagrave and am glad your could too.
I checked my current list of Olson's and no Vernon. Darn, but thanks for checking just the same.
Glad you liked Japan, hopefully you can come during a more peaceful time. The people here are just amazing!
I have transfered all Boatman's from Pleasant Valley Cemetery that I had to you. Please let me know if I missed someone. Update as you would like. I hope more family members will be able to find them. In your research of the Boatman, please let me know if there is a mention of Alden Olson or Jensen family. I started working on this cemetery as it was were my grandfather and family are interned. I always wondered about those resting with him. If they had been his friends are not. He was an avid hunter, perhaps your family was part of his hunting buddies. He was a mysterious man and pass before I was born. He left little behind him. Anything you might be able to share, perhaps you've seen his name in the papers while researching your Boatman, I would be most grateful.
|Wendi Muto||Boatman Update|
I have added your suggested family links to Gladys Boatman, would you like a memorial transfer?
|Scott and Priscilla Butler Fraser||Petty|
Have made the corrections to the Petty memorial, if you have others I will be happy to do so.
