|Bio and Links|
I am a Retired Sailor. I enjoy looking for "Stones" in my quest to find my ancestors and to help others. You have my permission to use any headstone marker photo I have taken so long as it is NOT for a commerical venture.|
Generally, I will only transfer memorials within Find A Grave guidelines. To request a transfer, use the suggest a correction link on the "Edit" tab for the memorial you are requesting. Please include your relation to the person you are requesting.
Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits!
""To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.
Managers will no longer receive correction emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!
Requesting a transfer, adding family links, or other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.""

Hi Don: my name is Laura Westervelt and I wanted to give you some information on my great grandmother. Mattie was born in Pennsylvania in 1852. She is descended from the Groton Avery Clan of Connecticut through her grandmother Sally Bement Avery Miller. She was married to Abraham K Lucas' son, John T. Lucas a civil war veteran. She died from cutting her finger on a chicken wire and contracting septicemia. Hope you found this interesting!

Don, Thanks so much for your fast response. I just

Thanks, Robert Carlson

Dear Mr. Watkins:
Thank you for your Find A Grave contributions, and your photo volunteer.
Alas, no tombstone for Anna Marie & Mathias (Jr) Maisenbacher :( You saved me a trip from Illinois to Omaha Nebraska to look for their graves!
Over the 4th of July holiday, my mother and I went to Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield Illinois. We saw Margaret Meyers and Mathias (Sr.) Maisenbacher's tombstones.
Abraham Lincoln is also buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery!

In the 1960s I worked at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha. Used to visit with a nice cubby man who worked there as a projectionist. I remember he used to tell me stories of when he was in the Army he was with the group that searched and hunted the legendary Poncho Villa in Mexico. That projectionist was Ross Hatton. Thanks for getting a great photograph.
